What a year!

2012.2013. I guess it is hard to believe a year has passed.  This was a year of ups and downs, mostly ups. The downs almost ruined me. But I overcame.

When 2012 started, we were celebrating my baby boy's 1st birthday. We celebrated an amazing first year. I am beyond blessed to have that little boy as my own. I hate that he grows so fast.

On the brink, of the new year, I was celebrating a big promotions with Pure Romance. I reached top level in the company in January 2012. Hard to believe I would be celebrating a year at the top. In January, 2012 the world of PR was mine for the taking. I had no idea the things that were in store for me.

As 2012 progressed, opportunities were presented. I was introduced to the world of It Works Global. After trying the products I knew that they were going to change my life. My husband and I took a leap of faith and joined the ride! Things got far more complicated than I could have ever imagined. When we joined It Works, we joined to help my family get out of debt. That was my only motive. I joined with the intention of possibly making an extra $1000 a month to change our situation. What ended up happening was something I could have NEVER imagined. I fell in love with the products and the company. I built a team of rockstars, and my check far exceeded my goal in only a couple of months.

As my success grew, policies changed with Pure Romance, and I had to make a decision. I had to dissolve the It Works business that I had built for my husband. Or dissolve my team with Pure Romance and allow them to roll up to my sponsor. This was a tough decision. One I cried over. One I lost sleep over. One that my husband and I hashed out over several days. This was not a decision I took lightly. At the end of the day, I went with my gut. I walked away from a team that was on track to be a million dollar team with Pure Romance. Our family took a financial hit that we were able to overcome thanks to my It Works Income.

This post is not to dwell on what I lost. In 2012, I was tested. I am happy with the way things have turned out. I enjoyed my time in the romance industry. But as I grew, I realized that it was not where I was meant to be. Things happened for a reason. And my reason, my purpose is with It Works Global. I am exactly where I am meant to be.

Through the midst of business changes, came the whirlwind of a life that I love. The life of being Jayce's mommy <3 I spend my days being present in my little guys life. I own my own time....well Jayce owns it :)

So as I reflect on the changes I have made over the past year, it all leads me to here. This moment....staring at my laptop thinking about my goals this year. I don't make resolutions. I make goals. Resolutions fall by the wayside within a month or 2. Goals are with me all year long.

So here they are. I am putting them into cyber space for your reading pleasure! :)

*Reach my goal SIZE of a size 10
*Complete another half marathon

*Be IN a bigger house by January 2014

*Start journaling. I know that sounds ridiculous, but it s more a business thing :)
*Focus on helping my team succeed

I have some big goals and and a whole year to work on them!!
