Our baby step journey begins….

Hello friends! It feels so good to sit down at the key board with this blank screen in front of me as I type this blog entry.  It has been too long and I am eager to get back to my blog and start a new journey that I can share with you all.  Over the past several months, I discovered Dave Ramsey and am a regular follower now to his plan, books and YouTube channel.  I find myself listening to the Debt Free screams for encouragement and motivation to start our journey.  If you are one of Dave’s followers, you know that he refers to people as “nerds” or “free spirit”.  It sounds so odd but in our relationship, if I had to say one of us was a nerd, it would be my husband although he does not work on our budget or take part in any of the bill paying process which I hope in this journey, that will change.  I am definitely the free spirit but I feel so strongly that there is a nerd inside of me trying so hard to get out.  I want to be debt free so bad.  The life of being slave to the lender is a stressful one to say the least.  I’m tired of living paycheck to paycheck.  If you are interested in sharing your opinion in the comments, I would love to hear if any of you are debt free and how YOU went about achieving that.  When I was young, I remember my mom telling me that we could not do this or buy this because she did not get paid until next week.  It was normal.  My whole life it was like that.  Then I lived the same all of my life until now.  Now that I am older and tired of trying to outwork debt, I wanted to find a way to be debt free AND teach my children that it is absolutely NOT normal to be broke and live paycheck to paycheck.   I would love to hear some tidbits of your life story.  If you and your family lived paycheck to paycheck when you were a child, do you follow the same lifestyle now as an adult? Or if you had a very financially responsible family when you were a child, did you follow your parents path and live responsible as well?  Do you think that income is a major key factor in living debt free?  Since I started following Dave and just thinking about my own life, I am leaning toward the belief that it is a learned behavior.  What about you? Do you agree or disagree?  I would love to hear from you.  I’m very interested in changing my family’s path and I am truly interested in the general consensus about this.

A little about me:  I have worked at the same company for 19 years.  I am married and have 3 children living at home, 2 grown and on their own.  I see my 2 oldest children, living paycheck to paycheck and pretty much following the life we led as they were growing up.  As a parent, it makes me feel horrible.  I feel like I am responsible for not leading them properly about money.  The difference is that I am not going to lay down and cry and feel sorry for myself.  I am so driven to change our lives.  I want them all to see that none of us have to settle for this life style.  I am working on some personal growth goals for myself and I will change our family tree.  If you have not heard of Dave Ramsey and you are looking for guidance on getting out of debt, I encourage you to look him up.  He wrote the book, “Total Money Makeover” and it is absolutely inspiring.  One main reason I am drawn to Dave is because he actually went broke.  He lived it and got out of debt by following these steps and he is such a strong inspiration for me.  My husband and I are currently on Baby Step one which is to save $1,000.  This will be our emergency fund. Then we will go onto baby step 2 which is to gather all of your bills smallest to largest, except for your home, and start attacking the smallest one.  Pay it off and move onto the next.  It is called the Debt Snowball.

Thank you all for reading my blog post and I look forward to reading any comments!  I would love to keep this a positive, learning opportunity for anyone who might be in the same place in their lives so we can all work together on building a better, less stressed life.  I am ready to live like no one else so later we can live like no one else!

Thank you for being here and I can’t wait to talk to you again!







My Birthday Eve Blog

Remember my last few posts I talked about Plexus and how much I really love the products? I am still loving the products and sharing them with everyone I can. Joining Plexus was a life changer for me. I became surrounded by the most supportive group of people that lifted me up. They helped me discover the me inside that had been buried away for so long. I found myself wanting to invest in myself and grow spiritually, financially, emotionally, etc. I am focused on my health, exploring ways to become more crunchy and green, researching foods that I am putting in my childrens’ bodies, expressing myself through art on different mediums, focusing on finances by learning about Dave Ramsey and his babysteps to help us gain financial freedom, etc. So just from what I have mentioned you can tell that I have changed so much over the last 2 years, especially in the last year.

Forgive me, Friends!

Hello ya’ll! I am so sorry that I have not posted in so long.  That is definitely going to change.  I am excited and determined to get back to posting and sharing again.  So what was your New Year’s Resolution? I really didn’t call mine “resolutions”, more like life goals.  2016 is all about life goals for me! One major life goal for me is time management.  I absolutely have struggled with this for my whole life.  I have been the most unorganized person that you have ever met.  I always justified it by saying that I am just too busy to focus on time management.  How crazy is that?  So now, moving forward it is a huge priority in my life.  Let me tell you a little about why this is so important to me now.

My last couple of posts were about Plexus so I definitely wanted to bring you all up to date on my journey.  I LOVE PLEXUS and I will never be without it again in my life.  These products have changed my life more than I would have every even began to think they would.  I started taking the Plexus Slim and the Accelerator in very early November 2015.  I immediately started noticing that I had ENERGY!!!  I SLEPT GOOD at night!  These 2 benefits for me sealed the deal.  Let me tell you a short story that makes me feel like a horrible mom and wife.  I have worked a job (not a career) but the same job for the past 18 years of my life. My children are 22, 18, 11, 8 and 4 years old.  I completely missed A LOT of the lives of my 2 oldest children and that breaks my heart.  Everyday I have been getting up and coming to work for the past 18 years at a desk job at a manufacturing facility.  BUT, I am thankful because that job provided me and my family with a steady income for many years but now as I am growing older, it is more about the time spent with my family then the money that I’m making.  I know that we do still need both my income and my husband’s income to support our household but I now I have seen a glimmer of HOPE.  The light at the end of the tunnel.  The pink light.  And that, my friends is because of Plexus Worldwide.  I truly believe that God places people and events, things, etc in our lives for a purpose and now that Plexus has been put in my life, I am able to see that my life doesn’t have to be waking up to go to a job that I am burned out on, working all day, coming home grumpy and exhausted and bringing home a case of bad attitude with me each night.  I have found so much success with the products that I have taken that I am alive again!!!  Seriously imagine the scene from the Sound of Music! That is me!  I feel so much better! So alive and so energetic even after a 8 to 10 hour work day! And then I choose when I want to go to bed rather than falling asleep sitting up on the couch trying to watch TV. The best part of that is that I actually sleep so good through the night that I wake up REFRESHED and feeling well rested.  That is what my Plexus Slim and Accelerator has done for me!  Next I want to tell you about the IBS/CONSTIPATION that literally made my stomach feel like I was 9 months pregnant everyday of my life.  I was so bloated that it hurt.  My Plexus upline told me about the Tri-plex combo which consists of the Plexus Slim, Probio5 and the Biocleanse products.  I literally fell in love with these.  The first week I was regular and feeling excellent. SPOILER ALERT…..I was regular and actually feeling skinny because I wasn’t carrying around that poop baggage with me all of the time.  I felt great!  BUT I started feeling TOO GOOD about myself and thought that I could skip the next month of Tri-plex but let me tell you, it did not work out good for me.  And that is my fault because we all know: CONSISTENCY CONSISTENCY CONSISTENCY with anything we take!  This needs to be a part of my daily regimen and I just have to accept it as part of my preventative maintenance program!  Plexus has just made me feel alive again and honestly it has made me want to be a better person all the way around.  Does that sound crazy to you?  For health and wellness products to give you that overall sense of wanting to be a better person??  I know and I can’t lie….It sounds crazy but folks, I am telling you, it is not just me.  PLEASE message me or friend request me on FACEBOOK!  (HEATHER  JOHNSON) Follow my stories, let me show you testimony after testimony of amazing life changing stories!  And these products are not all about the weight.  Weight loss is a side effect that is pretty awesome but these products get you healthy from the inside out!!  I am posting my business card as well because I want so badly for anyone who is just not feeling themselves, had health issues (Fibromyalgia, MS, Diabetes, INFERTILITY, etc) to please research Plexus and what these products may do for you!!!  If you are looking for a business opportunity then this is the business that you need to research.  The compensation plan is INSANE!!!!  Do me a favor if you are questioning the business part of Plexus.  Go to YOUTUBE and type in Plexus Diamond Documentaries.  You will see a list of them.  Take 8 to 10 minutes out of your day to watch one of these amazing life stories of the top earners in the company that reached that level in 1-3 year time span!!!   It is so awesome to be a part of this group of amazing people in this business.  It is called ONE PLEXUS because anyone on any team will help you if you need help.  If you have a question that you just don’t know the answer, just reach out and someone in the world will answer you!  I have met so many amazing caring people in my short time at Plexus and it has been life changing.  In June there is a convention in LAS VEGAS open to any active ambassador.  That means if you pay your $34.95 annual membership fee, you become an ambassador and you get your products at wholesale, you earn money on any sales over $100, you have the opportunity to earn money 11 different ways, you have an unlimited resource bank of training and help for you and you get to travel to awesome conventions and retreats all over the world!!!   You can even earn a LEXUS!!!  Please reach out to me if you have any questions about the products or the business opportunity!!  $34.95 for annual membership!  That is like a wholesale club like Sam’s Club or Costco!  You could get your products at wholesale even if you don’t want to share the experience and make money off of it!   business cardwhat is PS

My Plexus journey continues…..

what is PS

Hello friends! I wanted to check in with you all and let you know how my Plexus journey is going and one thing that I can most definitely say is that I am a Plexus junkie.  I have tried so many diet fads/plans/schemes/projects/etc over the past 24 years and I have found “the ONE”!  Is it a magic pill?  Am I starving to death?  Have I lost a huge amount of weight in a short period of time? Can I eat whatever I want and still drop off massive pounds? Answer to all of these questions is NO.  And I am 100% good with that answer.  This is most definitely not a magic pill.  It is an amazing little packet of goodness that I honestly wake up each morning eager to drink.  The taste is refreshing and delicious and I can pour it in the water bottle and drink it, swallow the companion capsule, Accelerator or Boost and begin my day feeling incredible.  This combination has changed my life so much in the short amount of time that I have been taking it and honestly I am hooked.  I love feeling the natural energy that flows through my body and keeps me going from 5 in the morning until I decide to go to bed at night.  I am no longer falling asleep sitting up on the couch and I feel amazing.  I have been able to complete so many items on my to-do-list that just didn’t get done before Plexus.  I am not starving to death.  It does curb my appetite and I do have to remember to eat sometimes because it just makes me not even think about food BUT food is a necessity for healthy weight loss.   Because of that and the fact that I am always on the go until I get to work and after work I ordered the 96 shakes.  These are meal replacement shakes and I LOVE them.  They work perfectly to make sure that I am eating and not gorging on 2 big meals a day.  Personally, I drink 2 a day.  I love them.  In fact, they are so good, my dogs, Obie and Matilda love them!  When I received the envelope in the mail, I left it laying on a big ottoman and my sneaky furbabies decided to tag team to get into them as you can see in the BUSTED shots I caught them in the act before any damage could be done. lol

96 chocmatilda 96obie 96I

I have not lost a huge amount of weight but I have lost 6 lbs and several inches to date but I am completely ok with that because I am doing it the healthy way.  I am confident that I will be able to lose and keep it off this way.  One issue that I have discovered is that I have horrible gut health.  I mean, don’t get me wrong because I always knew that I had horrible gut health but I didn’t realize there was actually a term with the symptoms that I live with daily and have all of my life.  I now understand though that I must get my gut health corrected before I will lose any significant weight because I have who knows how many years of sludge caked in my gut.  Plexus offers 2 products that many call the dynamic duo because they work wonder powers together.  The first is the Bio-cleanse.

Features & Benefits -Oxygenates the entire body* Helps cleanse the gastro-intestinal tract* Helps energize the body* Supports collagen production* Relieves occasional constipation

The other is called the Probio 5.

Features & Benefits Proper probiotic balance in the intestinal tract* Provides 5 strains of probiotic bacteria for supporting the immune system* Contains enzymes to aid in the breakdown of proteins and fibrous foods during digestion, contributing to a balanced intestinal system* May help inactivate free radicals or free radical-initiated chemical reactions in the body* Proper intestinal balance which increases nutrient absorption*

If any of my awesome readers have experienced bad gut health then you know where I am coming from.  I am just ordering this combo for myself and I cannot wait to get that order in.  This is what I am going to be looking like lol:

waiting on ps
I have lived with it so long that for there actually be something out there that can help me with this, it would be like winning the lottery to me and I am so excited to start these products.  I will be updating my progress along the way with these products as well.

Can I eat whatever I want? I think we all know that making better food choices and porti0n control choices are just an obvious must do for ANY lifestyle change you are trying to make.  It is important to drink alot of water with these products and any products for that matter.  I was told half my body weight in oz. so that is what I am going with.

Would I suggest for you to take? MOST DEFINITELY WITHOUT A DOUBT!!  I feel like a new person.  I wake up everyday so well rested and ready to get my day started.  I have so much natural energy that I feel amazing and do not have to keep buying energy drinks, 5 hour shots, etc.

I also wanted to share the business opportunity.  To become an ambassador for Plexus worldwide, all that it costs you is $34.95.  Yep, I said $34.95 to start your own busines. Can you go anywhere else and start up a business that you work into your schedule for $34.95 with a website and wholesale prices for an entire year?  Most people cannot even buy business cards for that amount much less start your entire business with it.  BUT if you say you don’t want anything to do with running your own business, you still get WHOLESALE prices!!!  So if you are dedicated to taking the Plexus products for your own well being then you can simply buy your own products and keep it moving.  You do have to have $100 in sales go through your website but if you don’t want to do the business part of it, you can just buy your own products and it still counts toward that $100 monthly minimum!! How awesome is that.  So basically, the first time you ordered you pretty much paid yourself back for the $34.95 in the savings that you had on your own products!!!  This is an incredible opportunity for anyone who wants to have any supplemental income, stay at home parent, or even looking to go all the way to the top and replace your current income! There are MANY top ambassadors making a huge compensation that have worked their businesses for under 2 years!!! That is amazing to me.  After I started feeling so awesome on the products, I did decide to start pursuing the business part of Plexus and let me tell you, I am in love.  I feel that God has put this business in my path to help our family get healthy and also to fulfill that dream of mine to help people and to build amazing relationships with people all over the world.  If any of you are interested in finding out more about Plexus and all of the opportunites that it offers, please comment and I will be in touch with you asap! You can sign up on my team no matter where you live in the world! There is Plexus family all over and we are all one big family.  I have “sisters” that I have never met in California and Texas and just all over! It is an amazing family to be a part of and that is why we are called Plexus One.  One team. One goal. I would love to have you sign up to be a business partner with me so PLEASE let me know if this is something that you are interested in!  You can purchase products or sign up on my team at the following website!  And remember 60 MONEY BACK GUARANTEE IF YOU ARE NOT SATISFIED SO YOU HAVE NOTHING AT ALL TO LOSE:)


God bless you all!

4 days in on my new journey and a little bit more:)

Family tray7day

Hello everyone! I just wanted to check in and let you know how my journey is going by day 4 on the Plexus Slim and Boost capsule. First, I want to let everyone know a little about me as a person and my life story. I hope you will follow along with me on my journey and maybe some of you can relate to the feelings and issues that I have carried through the years and if I just help even just one person, it will be worth sharing my story.
I was an only child. My mother and father got divorced when my mom was actually pregnant with me. She never remarried. (Remember I’m 42 now) and my father was an very scary alcoholic. He did marry a woman who I loved so much and she took care of me and was such an awesome force in my life. I’m thankful to God for putting her in my life because I am scared to think how I might have turned out otherwise. My dad actually left all of us when I was in the 5th grade and it was honestly a relief to me. That lifted so much stress from my life. It was a constant worry when he was around. I was terrified that he was going to show up at my school drunk or beat my stepmother in front of me. He was a very angry man. I was so glad that he left and never came back.
My mom has always been a financial support in my life. She spoiled me when I was young and indeed I did have the stereotypical only child life until I was about 14. My mother was very concerned about my looks. She wanted me to look a particular way. I felt like she wanted a pretty popular duaghter and I just never felt that I lived up to her standards. She was very demonstrative in her feelings about weight issues and the “lazy” fat people syndrome. I was VERY insecure about myself from preteen years until honest to God, about 1 year ago. I have tried every yo-yo diet fad that ever crossed my path and even at 18, got a job at one of these diet fad workshops where they wanted their representatives to look the part of a healthy thin person. I am 5′ 3. I know that on charts my weight should be a lot lower than the goal I have for myself. The company that I worked for wanted me to be around 118-125 range. I literally made myself throw up before each weigh in. It was an enormous amount of stress and I left that job after a very short time. So I went on with my life, had my first child at the age of 20 and was able to bounce back pretty quickly to a mom approved weight and then it was just a constant roller coaster for the next 20 years with weight insecurities. Now MY personal weight goal that I have set for myself is 160-165lbs. That is where I feel very comfortable and my husband (who loves some curves, yes ladies I have been blessed with a man who loves my love handles:) For me to meet that goal, I need to lose between 30-35lbs and then I will maintain myself at that until I feel the need to make more changes. Now that I am a grown woman with 5 children and 2 granddaughters, my main concern is my health. Of course I care what I look like, I think everyone wants to feel attractive to themselves and others but my priority is my health. God willing, I am going to be in this world to see all of my children’s children and hopefully longer so I want that all around health lifestyle, not the “butt look good in leggings” mode I was in for all of those years. So last year, I really began to search for any self help, healthy inside and out info that I could find and then I found my friend selling the Plexus. I’ve already discussed her in my first blog post about my journey but I am thankful for her introducing me to Plexus. I am gung ho, going full force moving forward with Plexus and as I can afford them, I am trying each of them out so that I know personally what they will or can do for me. Right now I am on the Plexus Slim and Boost combination and I love it. Day 1 was just kind of adrenaline and I felt great but I think that was probably the anticipation of what might come. Day 2 I actually could not get to sleep that night like I normally do. Honestly, I can be sitting straight up on the couch watching TV because I will fall asleep. As soon as I lay my head on the pillow in my bed, I am asleep. I never toss and turn and get up 1,000 times a night. I just don’t. I sleep through the night and wake up…….EXHAUSTED!!!! What the heck??? That confused me so much because I hear other people talking about sleeping 4-6 hours and they have so much energy and positive force and I’m slugging into work at 8:30am like I haven’t slept for days. Well my friends, Plexus reviews said that I was going to get a better night sleep and I was scared because I already was sleeping so hard. But it has been an incredible transformation. I have so much more natural energy. Not the jittery, scary, gross jittery energy but it just flows. Lastnight I sat down and watched an entire movie with my husband on the couch and stayed awake!!!! Hallelujuah!!! But starting day 2, my sleep has been great. I stayed up later, painting some wine bottles (newest hobby:) and then laid down prepared to be knocked out but I actually was able to lay there and just unwind and let the sleep creep upon me gently. Day 3 was Saturday which is my day off. I woke up at 6:00am with no alarm. The house was quiet and everyone was sleeping so what did I do? I got dressed, got in the car and came into work for 3 extra hours of overtime! That normallywould not happen. And without an alarm clock!! So then lastnight was the eve of day 4. My daughter went to a spa overnight party but around 8:30pm the phone rang and she was homesick and wanted to come home. I went to pick her up and we had a little pizza family night and then after the kids went to bed, my husband and I watched a movie together….both of us….not him and me beside him pretending to be awake when he said my name, like I wasn’t really sleeping:) lol I finally went to bed about 11:30pm and usually on Sundays, I like to get to work as early as possible but that is around 6:00am is my target time in on the 7th day that I wish I was at home and church with the family. I FORGOT to set my alarm to go off. I woke up at 5:30am!!! Again with no alarm. That is so crazy, I’m telling you this has changed my sleeping habits in 4 DAYS!!!! What can it do for me in 40 days??? That only has proved to be so awesome to me. I feel so good inside and so well rested. Some other benefits that I personally have noticed is that I do not drink soda pop at feen speed. Mountain Dew was my pop of choice and let me tell you, their sales have had to drop in the past 4 days. I have honestly drank about 6oz of diet mountain dew in 4 days!!!! That is so insane!! I don’t even think about it or miss it. I just had it with the pizza lastnight as a choice!!! I feel more alert and I feel like I get full faster as well. We had a Papa John’s pizza and if any of you know their pizza, just imagine it. We do get it cut into squares for the kids but I ate 2 squares of pizza and was done!!!
Overall I am just so pleased with the products and actually Friday, I placed another order. I did just order 2 of the 7 day challenges again but this time, I am trying the Accelerator instead of the Boost. I have just heard amazing things about the accelerator so I want to try it before I commit to buying a month supply of it. I love the Boost though so I’m a little worried about whether I will like the Accelerator as much but what do I lose if I don’t like it in 7 days? I haven’t committed to a month supply so then I can order whichever I like the best, Accelerator or Boost. In 2 weeks I plan to buy the Tri-plex which I have heard to be AMAZING! Bad gut health runs in our family something fierce. From IBS to constipation and then some has been passed down from my mom to me to 3 of my children. Honestly I remember going on a field trip with my son 2 years ago and the whole bus ride to the city we were going to I was praying that I would not have to use the restroom. Another example was this past Friday. We were Christmas shopping and my mom had an accident and we had to go home. Bad gut health is no joke and anyone who ever has lived with this, will feel my pain. I’ve heard testimony after testimony of people who say this has solved all of their stomach issues and it is just overall good for you. I know that for me to have optimal weight loss success, I have to get that corrected or I will never be able to be reach my goals.
I’m also sharing a few photos with some info on Plexus and also a picture of a few of my DIY projects I’ve been working on recently:) If you have any questions for me, please let me know and if you are wanting a healthier you, please visit my website at


The company offers a 60 DAY MONEY BACK GUARANTEE!!! You have nothing to lose but weight and sleepless nights:) Also the company is offering free shipping with the promo code THANK YOU so now is the time, my friends:)

My new journey

Plexus black and pink

Hello! I have not written in quite some time because our household has been going through some opportunities in the past few months. My husband was actually hospitalized in early August with pnuemonia. That was quite a scare for us. It started as a cold and my husband as I’m sure with many others, was sick but would not go to the doctor. He wanted to keep sticking it out and saying “it’ll pass” until one day I told him that he was indeed going to the hospital. The doctor said he had an upper respiratory infection and sent him on his way with a zpak which seems to be the go to medication anymore. A week later he was screaming out in pain from his back area and could not lay flat. I took him back to the hospital and surprise! He was dianosed with pnuemonia and was admitted immediately. He laid in the hospital bed for 2 weeks with a tube in his back draining the fluid off of his lung. This was absolutely devastating to our family and to see my husband, our strong family provider, in the hospital in so much pain and misery. It was very devastating because financially I had to be at work to try to make up any income that he was losing while in the hospital. He ended up having surgery on his lung and the doctor said that his age and being young enough and fit absolutely saved his life.  My husband was in the hospital for a month and a half and if anyone lives on a paycheck to paycheck budget that we do, you’ll understand where we were at after that much time off work not to mention the medical bills.  I absolutely prayed to God like never before and had to give it to Him to help us through.  He put his healing touch on my husband and thankfully, he came home and is now back to work.  But that was a big scare for our family.  It really opened our eyes to how precious our health truly is and that it can be compromised in a matter of seconds.  It was during this time that I especially became very “inventive” and as my children call me, a “hustler”.  When I wasn’t at work or the hospital, then I was at home, refinishing furniture, making crafts, going through closets for clothes and items too small or that we no longer wanted and I started selling stuff on Facebook.  It was actually quite a blessing to us and each $5 or whatever we received, I was absolutely thankful for.  While doing this I kept seeing a friend of mine who was just doing so well with in a particular business in which she was “sharing” health products.  And so it began.

It was close to the beginning of 2015 and I was in the annual search for the newest diet fad I could find to drop as many pounds from my 5’3 frame.  I saw this lady just posting all of these before and after pictures and testimonies and product deals, etc.  I messaged her and she sent me all of these messages filled with information.  I sat down and actually had talked myself into buying into it when my skeptical husband convinced me that this probably was just another diet fad that is a big waste of alot of money.  And so I passed on it.  So in the past several months I have seen this wonderful lady transform herself into a very beautiful, much thinner, and super confident young lady.  The transformation that I saw before my eyes was really enlightening and the wheels in my head began to turn and I started looking at the products and reviews.  My husband is definitely a review guy.  He believes in his heart that the review is the word of truth to live by.  I WAS a review person until I started reading into reviews and sometimes people are just not satisfied with a product but truth be known, they were not consistent.  They did not take it as suggested.  They forgot to take it.  They still gorged themselves and then questioned why they didn’t lose 50lbs in 3 days, etc.  So I put reviews on the back burner and went with fact.  Fact was what I was seeing from a young lady who lived in my town, worked 2 miles from me and was living proof.  She saw the product potential and then worked the lifestyle.  She stuck with it no matter if it was a month or 2 or 10 months.  She took the products and lived the product.  That is what made her so successful.  Her loyalty to the products and her health were key to her success.  After everything we went through with my husband and his health, we were convinced that we are going to become healthier and choose a different lifestyle to help prevent anything we could.  My husband stopped smoking which was HUGE! Never thought that I would live to see THAT day! I sat down and talked to my husband again about the products and the “potential” to supplement our household income while we were getting healthy! I was and am very excited to start this new venture toward a healthier us and also it would be so wonderful to earn some extra income while doing so.  This company, Plexus, offers amazing benefits to their ambassadors.  The income potential is simply unheard of.  I have been researching and watching videos and studying the human body and gut health, etc.  Before Plexus, I never heard of gut health.  Even though, now I am discovering that I have had an unhealthy gut my entire life.  I am just learning so many awesome facts that I never knew and now I can teach my children, husband, family and friends about these products so that they can be healthier as well.  Plexus is an amazing opportunity for a healthier YOU and also an awesome way to earn extra money if you are looking for a job to supplement income. Maybe you are a stay at home mom, retired, unexpected loss of a job, etc.  Whatever the situation is Plexus could be your answer as well.  For $34.95 the company gave me my own website.  (Basically my store front) They gave me wholesale prices on ALL of my products that I am going to be buying anyways.  And what is even more awesome, I can earn commission off my OWN purchases. They give you a choice of an incredible welcome pack at a huge discount to get you started. They give you so many resources and opportunities to learn.  It is such a team based business.  It is not cut throat and stab you in the back business.  They promote team spirit and advancement.  I got all of this for $34.95.  And you would not believe the number of people who have been able to come off of medications they have been on for years and years.  They are concerned with breast check health.  Diabetes, fibromyalgia, blood pressure, high cholesterol and so many more.  If anyone is interested in learning more about these incredible products or business, please feel free to comment and I will get back to you quickly.  Obviously everyone can see how excited I am to be able to share these experiences and these products with you so please contact me.

7/30/2015 A lady who misses her blog:)

Hello everyone! Our computer at home has died a horrible death and we are trying to budget a new one into the household budget but with my sons’ birthdays and back to school. Mom is taking a backseat which is ok as long as the kids are taken care of first:) A few things that I have been working on since I wrote my last post:
1. Bookshelf that I bought for less than $5, sanded, primed, painted and polyurethaned and added a chalk board top per my client’s request.
2. Issue that I am struggling with as far as pricing furniture after I finish it. I really try to seek out bargain deals on furniture and I have been blessed in finding many people’s trash that I have turned to treasure. BUT I feel that I am pricing way to low. But the crowd that I am targeting and advertising in my town are very much want to buy the best of things for little money. For example, while I paid less than $5 for the bookshelf, I put all of the materials and my time spent with labor and I sold it for $20.00 How do you guys feel about that price? What are your secrets and advice when it comes to pricing? Please let me know! I’m thirsty for answers:)
3. Octagon end table that is huge! If there was another matching end table to this set, it would take up a very large part of someone’s room. I honestly would probably use it as a coffee table personally. But I am working on it now and I am in love with it.  Now that brings me to another issue I am having.  Or should I say my husband is having.  When I buy these ugly ducklings, I feel nothing for them.  But after they are done, I don’t want to sell them.  I want to keep them forever.  lol  Does anyone else experience this feeling of attachment?

4.  $15 garage sale dresser.  I found a dresser at a sale down the street from my house.  Got it home and started to clean it.  Then I opened the drawers and WHOA!!!!  Horrible musty smell.  I totally thought I was going to have to set it outside  my house with a FREE sign on it.  But then I read an awesome hint on a Facebook page, about trying Borax.  I had serious doubts about this but then I recleaned it about 4 times.  And it worked! I am a complete fan of the product BORAX!  I used super hot water and added the BORAX and it worked wonderfully.  It is now a must have on the grocery list!  This dresser we purchased specifically for my son so my husband is alright with me keeping this one.  Thank goodness.  I could never have parted with it:) lol

I can’t wait to be able to upload some pictures for you to see.  I am still very new to giving new life to old pieces but I am in love with the process, the paint, the furniture, everything.  I wish I could give up the money making job so that I could do this full time but the bills determine that is not going to happen anytime soon!

I hope you enjoyed the post even without the pictures and I’m looking forward to any comments, suggestions or stories that you might have about what I wrote.  If you have ever felt the same way I have, please let me know that I am not the only one in the world!

God bless!
