Two Years Later: Why I Became A Beautycounter Consultant

Updated: May 31

"Once you know better, you do better."

-Maya Angelou

Today I celebrate two years with Beautycounter. As I look back on the decision I made two years ago, I can't be more proud to be associated and represent this purpose driven company. It truly is not just a beauty brand. It is a movement to educate, share safer solutions and advocate for change. Here is a few reasons why I am going to take my passion, purpose and ultimately my business to the next level in 2018.

1) BREAST CANCER THRIVER: I was diagnosed two weeks after I said, "yes" to taking the job with Beautycounter. Twenty years ago it was one in twenty and now it's one in eight. One in eight (#IAmTheOneInEight). I believe that by taking my story public, if it inspires someone to do their monthly self breast examines, research and make conscious buying decisions, not just with their personal care products but the food they eat, exercise, stress release, strengthen relationships through meaningful connections, then my experience will not go in vain. I am thriving after Breast Cancer.

2) ADVOCATE FOR SOCIAL CHANGE & PROVIDE SAFER SOLUTIONS: No one should have to sacrifice their health for personal care. The fact that we haven't changed a law since 1938 is unacceptable and that only a page and half regulate a $62 billion dollar a year industry is mind blowing. One in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with a cancer in their lifetime. Only 10-15% of cancers have a genetic link. The rest are due to environmental causes. Why not consider safer solutions.

3) EMPOWER WOMEN: I believe that in order to create true change it's understanding and believing wholeheartedly that we are all connected. That our choices impact us all.

This March I celebrate twenty years of being an independent business owner and I want to empower women to make their dreams a reality. To find that passion and turn it into their purpose.

To take control of their lives, time and financial destiny through creating a business model that is passionate, purposeful and mentorship driven. I know that each journey is an individual experience but the support, love and trust of someone believing in you is essential in being successful but more importantly living a life of significance. Creating a sisterhood of like minded women focused on living out what they are meant to bring to this world is how my own journey has come full circle. It's about living a soulful life that one day leaves a lasting legacy.
