2015 Late Summer National Training

While on a recent Pure Romance business trip to New York City, I visited The Metropolitan Museum of Art (better known as The Met), and was completely blown away by an exhibit called China Through the Looking Glass. There was a stunning Haute Couture Evening Gown created by a Chinese designer named Guo Pei that took my breath away. It was made of gold and silver silk, metal and sequins with beautiful embroidering. I stood in front of that dress for I don’t know how long, simply awestruck. I’ve always believed that constant exposure to creative people and new experiences like this are so important to our growth. No matter what my age, I’m always trying new things, traveling to new places, making new friends and connections – both in my personal and professional life. When it comes to our Pure Romance Consultants, our conferences, like the late summer National Training coming up next week in Las Vegas, are no different! They are an invaluable way to make sure you are continuing to be inspired and grow as a businessperson.

To those Consultants reading this blog, you will have the chance to hear from amazing speakers like Bryan Tracy (a top selling author of over 45 books and creator of the internationally acclaimed program on the Psychology of Achievement), Mary Christenson (recognized by Direct Selling Live as one of the Ten Most Influential Women in Direct Selling Worldwide), Darren Hardy (SUCCESS magazine’s publisher and Editorial founder) and David Bach (financial expert and prolific media contributor, as well as national best-selling author who wrote Smart Women Finish Rich) – just to name a few!

This is the first time Pure Romance will be back in Las Vegas in over three years! This city is always bustling, and filled with a special energy and excitement that is unmatched. Las Vegas restaurants, bars, hotels and casinos have recently started injecting oxygen into their venues to help patrons stay awake and keep going in such a dry desert climate, but something tells me all of you will be so excited, you won’t need much help in that department!

You will get to make and build life-long friendships with other Consultants like you, and learn new sales techniques and inspirational ways to grow your businesses. It’s also the perfect time to get motivated and motivate your team. Many who own their own businesses run the risk of becoming stagnant; continuing to attend these types of conferences ensures you will grow and break out of your every day Pure Romance routine.

This year we also have an amazing app that you can download on your smartphones called “Pure Romance Consultant Events” – all you need is your Consultant log-in to gain access to Consultant news, updates, and even a gallery of “Selfies” taken during the event.

For those of you who can’t make it to Las Vegas, be sure to attend your local team meetings so you can at least benefit from some of the late summer National Training takeaways from your sister Consultants who were able to take advantage of it. And remember: always, always, always stay a student!

Coming Soon: New Month Resolutions

I re-launched my blog to inspire women to live with poise, flair, and purpose, to help women reach their full potential and give them insights into how to overcome obstacles they will face on their journey to happiness. Starting in 2013, I am going to kick it up a notch.

My first blog post of each month will be a New Month Resolution—a challenge for my readers to take on each month so they develop habits that will help them lead fulfilled lives.

I urge you to do your honest best to stick to these New Month Resolutions. I want you to hold yourself accountable, to set a high standard for yourself and maintain that standard. Let your behavior be a benchmark for the people around you. Become the role model you have always wanted to be.

Prepare yourself now. The New Month Resolutions start next week.

Standing Up

I am sure you have heard the saying “the squeaky wheel gets the grease.” This is a squeaky wheel story, and a reminder that no matter how accomplished you may be, negative people will try to cut you down.

I was at a distant relative’s wedding recently in Toledo, Ohio. I was immediately put off because some of the guests did not respect the occasion. They showed up in tattered jeans, tennis shoes, and other clothes more appropriate for a football game.

How South Africa & Australia Taught Me the Meaning of Thanksgiving

My gift from Catherine from South Africa.

Last week, we all gathered around tables with our families and gave thanks over heaping plates of food. Personally, I entered Thanksgiving with a surge of gratefulness after visiting South Africa and Australia for their first Pure Romance National Conventions. I am not sure if I have the words to express how I feel after these trips, but here is my attempt to do the experience justice and describe how thankful and fortunate I am.
