One of my all time favorite rides is now his favorite ride. Who else loves Tower of Terror? Getting to surprise my little man this weekend was the best!! And as we prepared for our trip to the Florida Keys, he packed an entire duffle bag full of his Toy Story stuff from home. He is Toy Story obsessed and he had no clue there was an entire section of a theme park dedicated to those characters (or that we would be going there). So it was a total blast when he got to meet them in person and I was able to experience the fun through his excitement. We may be pulling in sideways for his last week of school after arriving home in the middle of the night...good thing it's spirit week and tomorrow is pajama day 😜. I soaked up every single memory of our vacation - like the one captured in this photo where he offered me his hand. Because: They are only little once. Book the trip. Make dreams come true.
So, I went on a job interview today, and when asked what I expected out of the job or wanted for compensation, I replied: 💰First, I would like a base of 25% commission on what my family and I decide to add to better our lives + what others are interested in getting started with as well. 👨👩👧👦 This needs to be residual so that I earn that for the rest of my life (60+ more years) and can then will it to my son when I am no longer living. 💵 A lot of people I care about are struggling financially, so being able to offer them relief by hiring them is a must. I'll then need to receive commissions from you for the people I help train AND the people they are helping orient to the job as well. 🔥 Each of us will need to be able to earn the paycheck our heart desires with unlimited earning potential. I'll also require the ability to give myself a raise any time I choose. ❤️ Having the flexibility to cheer people on, watch them win, and celebrate their successes every step of the way is a must! 🌟 I also expect to receive a bonus when I reach new positions and a matching bonus when the people I have helped get started here, also reach new positions. I would like to be able to earn unlimited bonuses each month. Each of us having bonuses available in excess of six figures should suffice. 💻 I expect your company to provide me with the very best website, online ordering system, regular trainings, and lots high value events, no matter where I choose to live. 🚛 I also expect you to deliver to my customers, manage payments, offer excellent customer care and a product guarantee. 📈 I would like the opportunity to rapidly advance within the company, even if that means surpassing your job. 🏆 I expect to be treated really well, shown appreciation, feel valued and to know I have your support regardless of my accomplishments or performance. ❤️ I would like my friends and family to work here if they choose to as well. 🗓 By the way, I will also need to set my own schedule, and will work only when it suits me and my family. 🏝 We enjoy traveling frequently, so unlimited time off is a must. 🧜♀️ In fact, I'd like to be floating around in the pool and later, while checking my email, discover that you have gifted me new customers I've never spoken with simply because you know I will help them have a great experience. 🏥 I would like to have full medical coverage, including massage please, and for you to financially contribute to my children as they go to college. 📥 I would like a monthly top up on my earnings to cover any costs I incur in my day-to-day operations of my work. Up to $3,000/month is what I will expect. 🚀 I am not willing to be an employee of yours so that I will have autonomy over my family's finances and participate in the tax benefits that are available to us. 🌎 This company must function based on integrity and values. I expect to be on a first name basis with the corporate leaders and CEO. 🌱 Providing premium quality products that are both beneficial and provide betterment for the people in my world and sustainability for our planet is non-negotiable. I also expect equal opportunity for all of us and need you to give back to future generations + donating your company's earnings to the charities that mean most to my heart. 👀 I looked him dead in the eye and asked, “So when can I start?” After the owner recovered from shock and bursted out in laughter, he said, “You can’t be serious! You will never find an opportunity like that anywhere!! You are dreaming! And if you do….. come back and get me because I want to work with you! So I smiled and slid my business card across their desk…. 💃 #thankful #present #freedom #dreamcometrue #keepsgettingbetter #retirement #youmatter #deservebetter #letsgo
Our happy place -We played football for hours in the pool -Watched the sunset while sipping on ice cold pina coladas -Shook our palm palms 🌴 to the live music -Enjoyed salad for dinner and s'mores for dessert -He put on one of the robes after changing out of his trunks and when I tucked him in asked, "Can we live here?" Thankful and looking forward to the entire week ahead! So many memories to be made 💙.
This is my husband's favorite recipe from his mom. We make cheesy potatoes each Christmas in her honor. After she passed away, I found her handwritten recipe and created a cutting board with her handwriting. One ingredient we usually would not have around were green onions. Now we always have them because we grow them year-round on our tower. Have you ever seen one so thick!? Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas filled with love, peace, and joy. Do you have a favorite meal you make each year or a recipe that has been passed down? #growyourownfood #FreeProduce #merrychristmas #familyrecipes #christmasinheaven
Life will be messy at times..mark my words…….and it is through the mess that we can often find the most beauty. Whether it is the beauty of a creative masterpiece, a beautiful relationship, or even a meaningful life lesson, the chaos and uncertainty that we encounter and choose to grow through is where the joy can be found. Embrace the mess and you just may find something beautiful. For a long time I have been in denial that the mess exists. Afterall, messes are frowned upon, right? So it scared me to let others in to the parts that aren’t shiny and pretty. Why?? Because no one was talking about their mess!! I felt like the only one dealing with the hard despite always trying the absolute best I could. Others appeared to have it all together AND I thought that meant I should too. If I have ever given you that impression, I.am.sorry. I have found when we keep our humanness locked away: we isolate, we compare, we judge – whether that be ourselves or others. I figured that if I didn’t want to feel the pain, why would someone else want to sit in that space with me? It’s not normally fun to feel stuck in the messy. However, through the love and embracing of my friends, I have found a safe place to be me and have learned how freeing and energy-giving it is to let others in. Now I can offer that same grace to the women I care about to know they aren't alone either. It truly can be beautiful. You don’t have to feel stuck in it anymore. Just like in this photo, I have been able to turn my mess into my MASTERPIECE. It felt good to be in the room, slinging paint around, while blasting rock music! I chose a canvas because I wanted to create something that I can display and have it remind me that life is messy AND it can be beautiful. Especially this time of year (running around trying to shop, wrap, cook, drive this person here and attend that party there) it can feel like we are throwing paint at a wall hoping it sticks. It can look like a real disaster – yet it always comes together. We did this call last month where all of these amazing women jumped on and heard others share what it is like to be a mom thriving in the midst of the messy in life (whether that be relationships, work, faith, or themselves). Hearing practical ways to balance all the things, finding clarity through connection, and the support of being in community are essential. When we have backing we can conquer anything! We received so many messages during the call and after saying how inspiring it was, that they really felt the heart of the other women, that these ladies didn’t feel so alone after tuning in, that they felt capable with the tips and tricks shared, and are empowered to live in the AND…to not settle for the either/or any longer. I even cried during it! By the end the ladies were begging to know the date of the next one. It’s here! Back by popular demand, tonight, at 7:30!! Take 30 minutes for yourself, and if you are reading this and saying that you don’t have any time for you, this may be your sign to know exactly where you will receive benefit being at that time. I’ll tell you, it’s absolutely validating when there are a group of women that you feel heard and seen by! To know you are not alone. I’m thankful to be able to offer what this community has been to me...a safe place, where I can welcome anyone in for some extra love, support, and encouragement. So, if you are interested, drop #masterpiece below or message me for the invite. Bottom line, we all will leave with our cups absolutely filled. Looking forward to seeing you there!! #mymessismymessage #messyandimperfect #youareinvited #splatterpaint #lifeisablankcanvas
I want you to get to know the family and heart behind Fruit and Veggie Life. This post popped up in my social media from a past Christmas. This is something we are intentional about every year! One day recently, we were saying something about Santa bringing presents. We were blown away that our 3 year old responded by saying he wants to dress up like Santa and bring little boys and girls who don't have toys some presents. Today, we did just that. We do angel trees through work, church, and different clubs each year, but this was completely different to see Adam going through the toy store and picking out gifts he wanted other kids to have. The shopping cart was overflowing with his giving heart. Tonight when we dropped the toys off, we were told kids had been put on a waiting list because the organization had already distributed the donations and had no more to offer. There were tears in the lady's eyes when she thanked Adam for being so generous and told him he was going to make a lot of kids very happy this Christmas. It really touched me to see the kindness and compassion that my little boy has and for his ability, at such a young age, to put others before himself. #itisbettertogivethantoreceive #sweetheart #hohoho #kindnessmatters #tistheseason
You know that feeling you have while watching a Hallmark movie? It gives you the warm fuzzies and you can almost picture yourself in the cute little town. Tonight, we got to experience our very own romantic real-life production with so many unique Christmas touches. We walked hand-in-hand in the street and saw some puppies dressed in adorable costumes. The store owners were outside with crafts set up and passing out little treats. As we sipped on hot chocolate and heard laughter and cheer all around us I felt the magic of the season. I love that we live in Clayton, with all the small town charm, and we were able to play in the "snow" as the night wound down. Happy 1st day of December. Let the festivities begin! #Hallmark #smalltowncharm #treelighting #december #magicofchristmas #tistheseason #santa #livenativity #Jesusisthereason
Real and raw: To show your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable. To make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength. If there is a voice inside of you craving to be heard, if you feel there has to be more to life than staying on autopilot and are yearning to breakthrough to unleash who you were created to be - the one you already are inside, drop #thatsme. #vulnerable #myvoiceholdspower #unleash #strength #authenticity #imperfect #recoveringperfectionist #butgod #madeformore
I remember when Black Friday specials used to mean waking up in the middle of the night to get your hands on that special deal. One time, I pushed a TV box (the old school style with the big back on it) all around the floor of a Best Buy and waited in line for a couple of hours and was so excited to have that in my college dorm. Thankfully, now we can shop for any of those must-haves from the comfort of our warm home. What’s the most memorable day after Thanksgiving purchase you have made? I am so excited for what I am offering my friends today! I never seemed to be able to get enough protein in each day. Did you know that as we age, we need even higher amounts? I’m thankful, whether following a workout, or looking for something quick and easy, I am able to get 25 grams of clean plant protein in which each serving. It’s a bonus that this one not only helps with building muscle, it offers faster recovery through the ingredients that push out lactic acid to reduce soreness. Ingredients such as acerola cherry, guava, mango, lemon, beet root, tart cherry, mushroom powder and more. And I know all of the moms can agree with me in that an extra boost of mental performance and energy production can make our battles seem a little easier, too. You already know about the benefit of strong bones that I talked about the other day 😉. Although, one of my favorite things is that it is rare in that it contains all essential amino acids that are needed to support the production of COLLAGEN! I don’t think most people know that the collagen people drink is like flushing money down the toilet because it just gets broken down in the body. I’m also including a cooling towel, shaker cup AND 120 berry gummies which are so delicious to snack on and do a whole lot of good also….think antioxidants (anti-aging), immune strengthening, helping with circulation which impacts blood pressure, migraines, and other aspects of cardiovascular health. Oh, and by the way, these are only two of the amazing options that I can help to find the best fit for your needs. If they are good enough for the National and Olympic training teams to consume every single day, they are good enough for the people I care about too! I’m going to bet that the almost 5 figures I have spent on Black Friday so far this year all goes to the merchant, however, here a portion of every order is donated to the Volunteers of America and Children’s Hunger Fund, meaning you get to feel good about adding more good! Let me help you try these and experience what it feels like to say YES to more of what you want to be doing. Send me a message today and I’ll make it easy to help you get started.
Going live at 7PM today to give away Perform protein, a shaker cup and cooling towel!! Here is some we made into ice cream simply by using frozen bananas in the blender before going out on the boat to watch the beautiful sunset on the 84 degree November day, Monday. It's delicious and so good for you!!
Never Miss a MONDAY … or any day.. really! For those of you who know me well… consistency in my diet has always been a challenge. I go ALL IN for a few weeks… hit my goals… and then the excitement fades. Some of you may have tried… 21 Day Fix Eating Plan Whole30 OPTAVIA Paleo Keto You get it… all the things. Been there, tried it. But this past year, I found one thing I can wake up and do every single morning in 10 seconds… Here is why it is so important to me that I do… even if it’s a week that I’m nailing my nutrition goals… 👇🏻 1. Environmental toxins are increasing. Chemicals, fossil fuels, hundreds of new pesticides being produced, plastics, heavy metals, food additives and preservatives. We need to eat way more fruits and veggies than we could possibly chew each day to actually move all these toxins out of our bodies. 😳 2. Food quality is decreasing. The food available to us in our grocery stores is what I call “jet-lagged produce” - picked before it’s ripe and shipped long distances. Even if you’re eating from the farmer’s market, the quality of our soil is just not what it once was, and you gotta eat way more servings today to get the same amount of nutrients in the veggies our grandmothers were eating. Broccoli 🥦 has lost 80% of its nutritional value. 🤯 3. Variety. If you’re anything like me, you eat the same fruits and veggies over and over. I diversify from time to time, but always seem to come back to the same staples. I am not eating all the different colors of berries, or a huge variety of fruits and greens every week. The truth is that our bodies THRIVE when we eat the rainbow consistently. The more colors of fruits and veggies we can eat every day, the more fine-tuned our immune systems and the better we look and feel. 4. The future! The research behind this nutrition capsules blows me away — over 40 published studies — more than any other whole food product in the world 🌍! One study shows that they protect DNA. So thankful my little one is getting this fuel daily too ... 🙌🏻 #EasyButton #JustMakesSense #forabetterme #abettertomorrow #worthit

My husband was an athlete in high school and college. He remembers the long days and nights in the gym and on the field. Anyone that goes to the gym can relate: half the battle is getting up the energy to work out, and the other half is battling the muscle soreness and recovery in the days following. Right here in North Carolina, there is a facility that trains the National and Olympic team athletes. They only receive the best of the best to ensure their peak performance. Each and everyday, the same functional foods that my family consumes will be part of their daily training regimen. So if it's good enough for the ones that are top in their class representing our country to win medals, wouldn't you want to give yourself that edge to perform better in your everyday life, too? This past weekend in Atlanta, I kept seeing ballroom dancers on the elevator who mentioned being so exhausted. Rightly so, that is hard work! Many even mentioned they wish we had a booth set up so they could have that extra boost! #beastmode #hotlantatheclassic #365days #olympians #athleticperformance #plantbased
Almost there!!! SUPER excited for a long weekend full of growth and impact with thousands of people that feel like family. This picture was from last year (one of the many times I was called on stage) where I was surprised and honored with an award at the global conference. We're calling it a family reunion, and you are welcome to attend as my guest! #familyreunion #atl #atlanta #designyourlife #impact #comehavefunwithus
How would long-lasting energy (yes, even after working all day), improving your mood 🤩, and performing everyday tasks at your best sound? Food is fuel. On days moms get more fruits and vegetables in, they report feeling calmer, happier, and more energetic. Who wouldn't want that? Let me help you, and as a bonus, we'll get your child free fruits and vegetables each day for free (through college age), in a form where they will actually eat them! It is absolutely worth being present in life AND feeling your best! #momhack #youmatter #fruitsandveggies #whatif #energy #mood
We are on the road again creating some fun family memories. As I was looking out the RV window the sky appeared completely orange. I think of lots of orange when it comes to fall...pumpkins, leaves changing and these daily omegas. I always knew our body needs us to eat our omegas because we can't create them. Still I didn't want the fishy burps or aftertaste so I simply didn't. Now, my husband and I, our son, and even our dog never misses a day of these powerhouses. ✅ incredible mental clarity ✅ deeper sleep ✅ less joint pain and inflammation ✅ protection for our heart ✅ super clear and dewy skin ✅ shinier hair ✅ better behavior Very thankful! #wellnesswednesday #byebyefishyburps #hairnailsskin #brainpower #essentials
