I joined a fast growing skin care line one year ago. I am not living in a mansion, I am not driving a Land Rover, I am not traveling around the world, I am not throwing big sums of money at the causes that melt my heart. Yet.
So here is why I get up, flip open my lap top, slug down some coffee and push ahead. In a word it is “Why”?
“Why” can change your world. Ask your self the often quoted “What would you attempt to do if you knew you would not fail”? And then do it. Don’t settle for conventional. If you settle for conventional you WILL get conventional results. Step outside of the same old, same old and rock your own world.

And we all know how that turned out.
You’ve got this.
