bittersweet ends & happy beginnings [from the heart]

Monday, July 15, 2013

For the past 4 years I've been working a part-time job outside the home while also building my mark cosmetics business.  I've works very hard at increasing my customer base, increasing sales, and making new friends.  As of August 8th, I will no longer be a mark representative.  They have decided to fully merge with Avon, leaving us with the only options of either becoming an Avon representative or quitting.  I've chosen the latter as you know.  Avon doesn't personally appeal to me, and I'm a little disgruntled at the way mark chose to announce this merge.  For lack of better words, they basically screwed all their representatives over.  I no longer respect them, and no longer wish to be a part of the company.

While that part of my life is coming to a close, I'm very excited for the new opportunities it's allowing for me.  This past week has been a doozy for sure.  As some of you know, I was currently also working 68hrs outside of the home as well.  I worked 28hrs at my part-time job that I've had for 4 years, plus took up a temp assignment at another corporation working 40hrs a week.  I was overworked and my blog lacked due to this.  Well not only did I lose mark this week, my temp assignment ended early.  Like mark, that was unexpected.  I'm not bitter about it though.  The money was nice, but I felt like my life was spiraling as I worked really hard to stay organized and on top of things.  

New beginnings!  With these two closed doors, a beautiful new door has opened.  My blog is flourishing.  Even with my neglect of it lately, and moving to a new platform [this is why the post count is low], I'm being offered great opportunity through sponsors & readers.  I want to take this moment to thank you all for your patience this last year.  I appreciate each and every one of you.  

What can you expect?  Better quality content on a regular basis.  With all the free time that I have now, I will be able to devote so much more time to this blog.  I've got so many ideas for posts & series!  I'm renewed and so excited to get started! I cannot wait to share them with you all!  I will be working on developing a schedule that works for me [you know my compulsion to have every minute of my day planned out].  

I'm ready to dive in head first and make this blog be something that we can all be proud to be a part of.
