Why a “Side Hustle” can be the Best thing Ever.

Photo by Priscilla Du Preez on Unsplash

I thought I would change up a beauty post to something a little different today. Something that gets a little touchy these days.

Call it what you may….. but there are zero reasons you shouldn’t try a Network Marketing company.

Yes, I said it.

And I am totally not saying, “You should ONLY join the company I am in” ect….. that is not what this is about. I am saying if you do choose to be a part of a network marketing company, that You are brave and strong for taking a leap of faith to do something for you. Where you are doing something where you are your own Boss, and you can control how little or how much you want to do at the end of the day. Let’s improve on the idea that all of these companies aren’t a negative thing, and that people that are a part of these companies aren’t one of “those people.”

If it fuels your passions and helps you reach your personal goals, DO IT SISTER.

After I had my twins, I was craving an outlet just for me. To be honest I felt a little lost. I was used to doing hair and makeup professionally full time, so I was craving an outlet to keep that part of my life that brought me joy in helping other’s feel their best! I am totally not saying my twins alone weren’t enough, trust me. Being a mama is the most fulfilling and biggest blessing in my life. I think it is totally ok to continue to pursue your dreams and passions after you start a family!

After being with another beauty company for over a year, I found that I wasn’t fully in anymore. And that’s ok! It helped me in So many ways other than extra income. It helped me gain confidence and I learned A Ton about social media and more. I met some incredible people too! Yes, the goal is to bring in some money at the end of the day, but it’s a whole step in a direction for you, and to help you become the best You.

The Sisterhood

Here’s the thing. Is this going to vary from company to company? Yes. Have I seen some of the ugly sides of some companies in the past, yes. But if you are fortunate to be on a supportive, caring Team, and choose a company that has values and leadership that aligns with yours, it can make a huge impact in your life. It can mean instant friendships and extra support more than a usual job can bring! I have met some incredibly talented women from just the past 3 months, and they are already dear friends! It is amazing the connections you can make and it allows you to be there for one another in your up’s and down’s in life. That to me is GOLD.

Being supported is important for you to succeed. To be kept accountable and to grow through challenges does push you, but it helps mold you. I have never been in a place of leadership, until now. It’s been incredibly rewarding and taught me a ton already! In a normal circumstance it can take YEARS to be in a place of leadership… think a bout that. This happened in only 6 weeks.

The Rewards

Photo by Marion Michele on Unsplash

One really cool thing about most network marketing companies, is the Trip Incentives! Usually you can be rewarded with a trip if you reach certain goals, which is an awesome way to set goals for yourself to win a free vacation! We are only three months old, so we don’t have any trip incentives yet, but there will be! These are awesome for you to connect with other’s in your company and really be a part of a sisterhood! Who wouldn’t love a free vacation?! This mama is all about it!

Free Product Perks

Let’s be real, free stuff is awesome. Usually most companies reward you with product credits, so you aren’t out of pocket on personal product and you can use your free products for Giveaways and more! Not to toot our own horn, but our company has the most generous free product credit plan I have ever seen. Last month I earned a LOT of completely Free products! I am so grateful. It really helps to be able to earn to help promote and build your business!

Personal Development

Photo by Marion Michele on Unsplash

I can literally say that being a part of a network marketing company has changed my life for the better. I am not saying it won’t be hard work, and take time to build a successful team, but it will be SO WORTH IT. If something isn’t working for you, change it. If you aren’t passionate about your company, try something else. You will truly know when you are Home.

Flexibility

Photo by Brooke Cagle on Unsplash

Whether you are a Mama or not, having something that allows you to work towards your goals in your timing is huge. You decide how little or how much you want to do. Being able to do it all from social media and not even leave your house, is HUGE. Until my twins go to school, I will continue to do freelance work and build with our beauty company! I needed something that gave me a sense of fulfillment with helping build up others, and this is absolutely perfect!

I hope this has been insightful of how it can be an amazing addition to your life. I really strive to show a positive side of these companies and that they can be so much more for you!

Cheers to all the Boss Babes out there! You are Amazing!!!!

Here’s my favorite style using Easy Updo Extensions

1. Attach Easy Updo® by making a ponytail with your hair. Then separate into 2 or 3 sections.
2. Twist or Braid one section over the other to make a long twisted ponytail. Then hold the end with your fingers.
3. Wrap twisted ponytail around the base and tie in a knot by guiding the end you are holding through the loop. Continue wrapping around the base while supporting it closely to your head. Tuck extension ends under under updo.
4. Secure extension ends and updo with bobby pins.

My GuruNanda Essential Oil Review

Disclosure: “Some of the links in this post are affiliate links and if you go through them to make a purchase I will earn a commission. The decision is totally yours, and whether or not you decide to buy something is completely up to you!”

Let’s Talk Oils

Hey friends! First off, thank you for following my Blog! I am so glad you’re here! So in general, I would consider myself “a little crunchy.” What that means is I try my best to make an effort to use more natural products and beauty products that are much healthier options for you. I strive to share things I use in my every day mama life that I can be proud of!

I have loved essential oils a Long Time. I actually used to sell Essential Oils Many years ago when they first came out and were still a touch “for the hippy types.” That really got me into using them in my daily routine. I am a bit picky too when it comes to oils. I think these days they are more mainstream and not as intimidating as they used to be!

These highly concentrated oils are extracted from fruits, leaves, roots, flowers, and other parts of the plant. Each essential oil is carefully extracted through steam distillation, resin tapping, and cold pressing.”

What Oils are in the Top 6 Blends

GuruNanda

About a month ago I was sent their Top 6 Essential Oil Blends and Honeycomb Diffuser Set, so I am sharing my honest thoughts from testing them out! It comes in a cool magnetic box and instructions on how to best use them and safety tips. With all Essential Oils you want to use them safely and if you use them topically you’ll want to use what’s called a “Carrier Oil.” A carrier oil can be liquid coconut oil or almond oil to name a few to dilute with your oils.

A look into GuruNanda

“We specifically choose locations where we can make a positive impact on the social, economic, and environmental aspects of the community. This gives us the opportunity to help communities rise above poverty and promote overall economic development.”


“Through GuruNanda’s partnerships with farming communities, we are able to create ethical, sustainable employment in underdeveloped regions. These collaborations lead to better income security and economic growth for the local society.


Fair Payment
“GuruNanda and its farmers collaborate in order to improve the quality of working conditions and keep farmers happy. Part of the reason why we are able to get the best essential oils on planet earth is that we provide our farmers with a fair payment. By working together, we create a progressive ecosystem of happy farmers, happy communities, and ultimately, happy customers.


From the GuruNanda Official Website

The Verdict

I have been using their Oils about a month now and I love them! They smell potent and not watered down at all too. (Yes, some do that.) The Honeycomb diffuser is awesome size and puts off a long lasting mist that is perfect for your kitchen or bedside.

I have twins, so obviously I need some calming oils…. Ha! The Tranquility blend has become my fast favorite. They are strong smelling so you only need a drop or two with a carrier oil. In the diffuser, just use two to eight drops into your water tank. We use the Calming Sleep Blend by my husband’s beside at night for restful sleep.

GuruNanda Uses

Leak Proof Caps

These dark amber glass bottles come with a secure cap, so you do not have to worry about spilling oils everywhere. Especially if you throw it in with your beauty products!


State-of-the-Art Glass Bottles “Every time you open an essential oil, you are releasing nature into the air. To make sure you get to enjoy every drop, we’ve developed state-of-the-art leak-proof caps. Our high-quality, dark amber glass bottles increase the longevity of essential oils by reducing oxidation.”

GuruNanda Diffusers

They have several diffuser choices based on how large a space you need to fill. Here’s the one we are currently enjoying here! They are so calming to have going and are perfect to keep your kitchen area fresh too.

“Diffusers break down essential oil micro-particles and disperse them.  
The most popular type of diffuser is the ultrasonic diffuser. Ultrasonic diffusers disperse essential oils into the air as negative ions. The diffuser produces ultrasonic vibrations used to break down the essential oils into micro-particles, allowing the oil to be dispersed as a very fine mist into the air. The process runs extremely quietly – ideal for relaxing, sleeping and working.” – GuruNanda

After using them a full month I would definitely recommend giving them a try! I added several options on my Amazon Page too! If you try them out, let me know what you think!
