Been thinking about it

I am sitting here today and am SO THANKFUL for my husband and the support he gives me with my Thirty-One career. I went to a networking group last night for the first time. I met some wonderful ladies..there was almost 50 women there! I wasn't sure what to expect, but I took a lot away from it and am looking forward to getting to know these women better.

I was standing there at the end of the evening chatting with a couple of the ladies and realizing how blessed I am to have a husband who stands beside me and wants to see me succeed with my own business. He doesn't complain about me going to 31 parties, attending events or networking meetings. In fact, he encourages me and is interested in what happens.

A few of the ladies last night were talking about how there husbands gave them guilt trips for being away from them and their families to go do this type of work and network...it was so depressing and I just felt bad for them. They kept checking their phones as their husbands would call and wonder when they were coming home. I drove home last night and realized even though I might complain about my husband and how he doesn't do things I want him to or think he should ....he does support and love me more than I can imagine. He wants the best for me...and I am thankful for that. 

Now...I must admit, when I first started this adventure, he wasn't too crazy about it and the whole direct sales idea. However, our deal when I started this July was that I was going to make this work and I needed two years to prove to him I can do this full time. Well...6 months later and he is already seeing the results...he has become my cheerleader. This is a big month for me....I am working toward being a "Director" and getting that extra bonus.  I am nervous/excited and just hoping and praying that it happens. God is totally paving the way...and I stand here today going...it seemed impossible two days ago...but I should have never doubted you...as I know you are opening doors that I would have never thought of looking in. I am amazed...thankful and excited to see what he has in store for my future.

Thanks for listening.

AMEN AND PRAISE GOD for husbands like that! He totally sounds like mine. We are very blessed,arent we? You know it but it really stands out when your around women who's husbands totally do NOT. Makes me so sad for them b/c I always "think" everyone is that way.

YAY YOU:) And once again, thank God for Godly men!

That is wonderful that your husband supports you! That is such an important key in direct sales.

Hope you achieve your goal of director soon! Best of Luck!
