A Year In Review - Work Edition

One year ago today, I started with Premier Designs Jewelry, having my first show - my training show. It has been a wild ride of a year, and I have learned A LOT. There have been times I have had to humble mysef and admit mistakes, and there have been wonderful highs when I felt 100% on top of my game! I started with this business in order to have something fun to do - something that got me out of the house, doing my own thing, and gave me a way to minister to other women.  It has been all of that, and more.  I knew I loved jewelry, but over the past year I have actually learned about fashion.  I knew I loved ministering to women, but over the past year I have learned that you don't need a church program to minister - I have been able to get to know and minister to women through the various aspects of putting together a home show for the hostesses and their friends.  I have been reminded that my tendency to procrastinate is what kills me so much of the time, and I wish I could say I have conquered that, but I haven't.  More than anything, the highlight of the year has been the home shows! I love, love, LOVE the home shows.  I enjoy showing the women new ideas in fashion, getting to know the guests - giving them tips and advice, and the best part, watching women try something they never thought they could pull off and finding out they love it! I still have a lot to learn, and I have many ways to continue to improve, but I am so thankful for this job and how much it has added to my life.

Okay, this has nothing to do with anything, but...that's ground cinnamon from Costco in the background, isn't it? I dig that stuff!

I'm so glad you're having fun with it!! My own experience with a home show was a disaster so I was a little scared for you.

That's awesome that you are having such a good experience with it! I have always admired woman who could lead those home shows. I'm just not that outgoing and friendly, but wish I was! And that's great that you can also minister to other woman too!
