Paris- Eiffel Tower, Bateaux Promenade boat cruise/tour.

IMG_0539What a fun day in Paris! Who knew a small town girl would travel at all, let alone to Paris! It’s always been on my bucket list! We went for lunch and met an amazing couple from the UK! We spent lunch chatting to them about their past businesses, her husband being a doctor & them currently retiring.. We shared what we do, They were very fascinated & said they are excited to join us in this business! Everything happens for a reason & fate brings to the right people at the right time, you just have to live with an open mind! We then walked to the Effiel Tower & had some street crepes, took a beautiful boat tour & held hands the entire time. What a great day in Paris it was! I’ll never forget it.

Day 1 & 2, The uk is beautiful.

We ventured out yesterday and saw the Big Ben, the London Bridge & the Queens other house, the Buckingham palace. We used the train, the “tube” (as they call it, aka the subway) oh and the big red buses! What an adventure so far! We’ve had caramel peanuts on the road & pizza for £3.00 take away (that means take it & go & that’s the full price) everyone has been very nice and straight to the point. We’ve also noticed that most people from the UK do the bigger jobs here and many nationalities do the everyday jobs. So we’ve met all kinds of people from other countries and they all have one thing in common so far, they are uber impressed with Scentsy! Much easier to explain it here solely for their interest, I guess meeting people (us) from Canada (the other side of the world to them) who are here for fun & to meet team mates seems pretty impressive in itself. We’re headed to meet some team mates in the lobby tonight and I’m honestly so pleased to meet these amazing, hard working ladies who I feel like I already know because of Facebook & Scentsy of course. This business has me wondering where the next 5 years will take us! But for now the next few weeks!

IMG_4269If you told me two years ago that I would be able to TRAVEL the WORLD when I wanted and live my DREAM I would have said you were crazy…

The experiences I have been able to have over the last 2 years were only a DREAM for me less than 3 years ago – I have truly created a life of FREEDOM.

But you see, my life always wasn’t like this… I struggled for many years, from job to job just getting by to being unemployed, I’ve lived on my own since I was 16!!

At the time, I truly BELIEVED that my only option was that life. I thought without an education or a rich family that’s how the story goes.

I spent the last 3 years working too many hours, working on building my dream life, hey all good things need sacrifice right?

As a kid, I always had BIG dreams… People always used to tell me not living in this area, it won’t happen!! I had dreams of traveling the world living life on MY terms.

I had dreams of going to Greece, Mexico, United Kingdom, Hawaii, and so many other places on the other side of the world lol

I had dreams of working from home and being with my husband and kids 24/7. Being able to REALLY enjoy life, instead of working just to live a little…

But I didn’t want to have to wait until my golden years..I wanted to do it ALL now!!

But the years I spent working paycheck to paycheck I saw that dream SLIP AWAY…

I remember being at my job Monday morning wishing that I could have slept in, sipping a cup of coffee just trying to stay awake.

The truth was that I was feeling lost, DEPRESSED, tired, overworked and feeling absolutely no joy in life. I kept asking myself “What is the point of all this?”

My entire life felt like an endless cycle. I would wake up and go to work, then go home, have a couple hours and go to bed… and repeat, and repeat, and repeat…

I was going CRAZY. That day I broke down into tears – I just couldn’t take it anymore.

Something had to CHANGE in my life before I hit rock bottom – I had to make a LIFE-CHANGING decision.

I decided to pick up my laptop and start searching for ways to make money online. Other than surveys, I didn’t find much!

I just knew deep down that there was a better way. A few days later I attended a purse party & figured hey I could do this, I love fashion & people. But only one problem, I was BROKE! Living pay check to pay check then being unemployed doesn’t leave much money in the bank!! Down to my last $30 to my name until EI day!

I asked everyone to lend us money, finally a friend did & I started my first business, lots of parties, events, auctions & hard work for years… Realized although I am working for myself, I am still working super hard! I wanted something where I had help of others and business that allowed me to live around my life instead of hours.

Once I got started with Scentsy, I was welcomed into a group and soon realized that this was REAL. These people were REAL, living the lifestyle that I wanted to live. And I realized that this lifestyle was REAL, and I would soon be living it…

A few months later I sold off my fashion business, a year later Ali quit his job, we wanted to focus solely on our new business & living life on our terms, we have been travelling the world & loving every minute of it.

I now get inspiring messages & emails every single day from people with a dream, making it come true & thanking me. My passion is traveling the world and helping people connect with their deeper purpose and to live their desired lifestyle.

If you’re reading this, I am speaking to YOU…

Your dreams are possible, whatever they are and more importantly, the right group of people are waiting to show you that it is possible to live a better way of life.

I can help you, we can discuss your dreams and goals. I believe in you – sometimes that’s all it takes.
