Ever since I started crafting I always kept an idea in the back of my mind that it would be really cool to make some money out of it one day. Yes, I have a full time job and a family to take care of, but I have been hopeful that something would eventually come along. I stumbled upon a post in one of my mama groups on Facebook about an opportunity to not only craft but also make money doing it. Could this be what I have been looking for?!
Taking the leap
Many direct sales opportunities have presented to me through friends and family, but none that I really felt passionate enough about to join. So what makes this one different? The post came from a fellow mama I’ve never met, in a Facebook group with hundreds of other mamas I’ve also never met. Hmmm.. not really an exciting story when I say it out loud, but that’s how it happened. After reading her post about this crafting business opportunity I felt compelled to message her for more information, something I’ve never done before. Ever. After a couple days of messaging back and forth and getting more information on the company, I felt really excited about the opportunity; excited enough that I actually did it. I signed up for a direct sales company.
The anxiety sets in
And then it hit me. OMG, what did I just get myself into?! Where am I going to seriously find time to do all of this? My loving husband topped it off with a simple palm to the face and head shake (LOL love you.) All in the blink of an eye, I was added to several Facebook groups. I started getting tons of notifications about where to start and how to get my business rolling.
Getting through training videos and reading through business documents is no easy task with a toddler and a baby. Their nap time is when I’m learning how to utilize social media and expand it beyond posts about my family and friends. Gearing up towards making how-to videos and going “live” is both exciting and nerve-racking at the same time. I’ve never been one to attract attention to myself, but I’m looking forward to try something new and different and get myself out of my comfort zone.
