I never envisioned myself in sales. I was a lawyer. An unhappy lawyer, but a lawyer nonetheless. Then one day I DECIDED I needed more. I needed to TRY a different path, even if I failed. So in March of 2015, without even talking to my husband or a single friend, I hit "enroll as a consultant" with Beautycounter. I had no idea what I was getting myself into or where that one decision would lead.
Fast forward nine months to December. I quit my legal job and three weeks later welcomed my third child into our family. Instead of taking a maternity leave for three months and handing my baby girl over to someone else I have weaved my life and my work together. I have the best of both worlds - I'm a stay at home mom and a working mom. I drive my boys to school every morning and pick them up each afternoon. I put my daughter down for her naps each day in her own crib in the room above my home office. I wasn't attached to a breast pump the first year of her life trying to juggle 60+ hour work weeks in a job I loathed.
But it didn't end there. I found my passion in life. I love helping other women build a business they can feel proud of - whether it's a hobby that gives them an outlet outside of their kids, or someone looking to replace a full time job - empowering others is soul filling. And I get to help my friends and family and people I meet along the way lead healthier lives by educating them about what is in their products and helping them choose safer.
Life is full of twists and turns. I can say without hesitation that the twist that lead me to Beautycounter was one of the best things that has happened to me.
