SFB Monday Motivation

Posted on: June 12, 2017

Hey Loves!

Happy Monday! It’s a new week, it’s time to get out there and take on the new day and what the week will bring. I want to start engaging with you more, and motivating and take you along my journey. Just as I continue on my path and journey, I’d like to take you along with me keeping you motivating and staying on course. Every week, we can help each other and motivate one another. No matter what your goals are, remember to change your focus, remain optimistic and stay positive. We will have our set back and failures, but remember you can alway get back on the horse and try again. Life isn’t a marathon its a sprint, and we are the ones in control no one else. I never said the journey would be easy but I did say that the journey would be worth it.

In life, we will face challenges, obstacles and hurdles. But it’s all part of the journey and experience. Remember to say “I can” instead of  “I can’t.” Because you can, no matter what anyone says, you can. Remember you will always have haters in life, let them. Everyone will have an opinion, everyone will judge, let them. Why? Because, they are just projecting their own insecurities and flaws onto you, because they don’t have your strength, will and determination. Plus, think about this, if you didn’t have any haters, you wouldn’t be doing something right…. In some way, shape or form, deep down, they are inspired by what you do, but because of their own insecurities they choose to hate. Why hate when we are all on working towards something, aren’t we? They choose to be negative instead being positive don’t give them the satisfaction. Don’t waste your time on the haters, don’t lose sight of your goals, keep the momentum going. Work hard, stay focus, and always be humble and grateful for all everything. Be thankful for this life you have and the life you have created. You only have one life, be good to it and it will be good to you. Take a deep breath, and enjoy everything that life offers. Enjoy life’s moments, don’t let a moment pass you by. Time doesn’t stand still, it just keeps going faster each passing year. So live in each moment that takes your breath away.

Lastly, trust and believe in your path. Trust and believe, you are on this journey for the right reasons. Make all the hard work count. Do everything with a passion and purpose. I guarantee you, it will all pay off and be worth it in the long run.

Chloe+Isabel: Creative and Smart Brand for the Entrepreneurial Woman

Posted on: July 11, 2016

“ When women support each other, incredible things happen.” 

“Hustle hard and Stay humble.”

chloe+isabel chloe+isabel 3 chloe+isabel 2 quote

The quotes above are true statements, that I believe in and what I’ve applied in my life and business. They are also reasons behind why I joined the Chloe + Isabel community. Today, I’m sharing with you all about Chloe+ Isabel, the company, what they’re all about and why I joined C+I.

Chloe + Isabel is a jewelry +lifestyle brand+ pioneer of social retail, dedicated to empowering the next generation of women entrepreneurs. 

Chantel Waterbury, CEO+Founder, conceived Chloe + Isabel as a place where smart, creative and confident women could play a significant role in creating an innovative new business model where they were at the center. Chloe + Isabel is both a brand and opportunity that combines elements of direct sales, retail and eCommerce with the sole purpose of providing a more meaningful experience to the modern woman. My mission was, and remains to this day, to empower the next generation of entrepreneurs through social retail.

Chloe + Isabel is the opportunity I wish I had when I was a young, ambitious woman with the goal of one day being my own boss. Today, I see in our Merchandisers that same drive I had when I first stepped out on my own, moving away from home at the age of 13 to pursue my education. I began working and saving up for school, and ultimately turned to a direct selling opportunity which paid my way through college. While it allowed me to make the money I needed, and gave me confidence in running my own business, I would have loved to have built my resume with an even wider set of skills, as well as been connected to a community of like-minded women.

It had taken me years to climb the corporate ladder and gain the skills I needed to run my own fashion business. Here was a chance to share my knowledge with today’s women so they wouldn’t have to wait, or potentially never get the exposure they needed. I wanted to help them reach their goals, whether they were financial or skill-based. We can be her stepping-stone or her destination. Chloe + Isabel was created to be a brand people would love, and more importantly, an opportunity our Merchandiser could believe in.

C+I’s mission: ” Our mission is to help tackle the financial needs of the modern woman- to provide the training and tools to accomplish her goals, whatever they may be.” 

 My reasons for joining the Chloe+ Isabel Community:

My initial reasons for becoming part of Chloe + Isabel was  because I had a strong passion and love for Fashion and jewelry. And after I saw the jewelry, I immediately fell in love. Soon after, I learned it was much more. It was a community that supported, empowered, inspired and motivated Something that I try and strive to do on a daily. We all have the same purpose in life, and I’m all about supporting that purpose and helping others  reach their goals and be successful. The Chloe+Isabel model is something that I feel everyone can learn from. Life is all about learning and growing, it’s a daily process. Having never owned a business, let alone a jewelry business, i’ve taken what I’ve learned at C+I and have created something that’s truly empowering and inspiring. Without this opportunity that C+I provided me, I wouldn’t be where I am today. It goes far beyond the jewelry, it’s an opportunity for women to take their creative spirit and turn it into an opportunity towards success. I’ve met so many amazing women, LadyBosses that have been quite influential and inspiration in my life. I feel i’ve grown a lot both personally and professionally over the years. I am the woman I am today because of what I’ve learned with C+I. My confidence has grown tremendously, and I’ve learned to take more creative risk to grow my business. My experience at Chloe+Isabel has enriched my abilities to network and communicate while also providing valuable social media skills. I’ve learned so much in just 2 years and I continue to daily. I’m turning my dreams into a reality because of Chloe +Isabel. Chloe+Isabel has helped me take my career to a whole new level.  I’m truly thankful and grateful for the experience and opportunity. Just as C+I has opened my eyes, by empowering and inspiring me,  I hope I can do the same for you.
