Working My Business

I have an early day today.  I am waking up at the same time, but only have about an hour to do what I want before I have to get ready to leave for work.  There is an all day training today, it occurs once a month.  For this training, I have to be at work an hour and a half earlier than usual.

I am the trainer for the training, which is fun and something that I really enjoy doing.  It is a lot of work to get it all together, there is a A LOT of paperwork and organization that goes into this training.  The state requires this specific training for anyone that will become and Unlicensed Child Care Provider for the State of Michigan.

Anyway, the point is that I have to focus my morning and attention.


I have my diffuser going with Wintergreen and Lemon, a wonderfully yummy pick-me-up for the morning.  I have coffee in my Young Living stainless steel mug (with a drop of peppermint essential oil) and lastly, I am working my business.  I had a friend who wanted to place an order last night.  So, after receiving all the info, I went on my website and put in all the info first thing this morning.

The whole point of doing extra business on the side of my 9to5, is to make extra money.  Extra money to do the extra things, more like buy the extra things and not feel guilty!  So, I only use the extra money that I earn to purchase my Oils, my Norwex, and my fun stuff from other women who are working their own business.

I don’t want to do this at the expense of time with my family though.  Giving up the things that I do to take care of them like make food, laundry, help with homework and read bed time stories isn’t an option.  So, I work my business first thing in the morning and last thing at night.  Before the kids wake up and after they have done all that they need for the day.

They know about Norwex and Young Living, they support it and have even made videos using the products.  I just don’t want to make it ever seem like they are more important than them.  So, when I can, I do it when they are in bed or otherwise occupied with other things.  That is what works for me and for my family!!

I hope that you have a wonderful Wednesday.

      1. I used to. I can’t now because I seem to react to EVERYTHING. I currently only use rosewater but I was using lavender oil and orange oil

      2. My immune system is so low i reacted to everything . I started throwing up and wheezing and getting rashes from every thing i always use! So i stopped everything. Except the rose water that seems to be the only thing I can tolerate. Very frustrating. Even my organic unscented shampoo reactions
