I am sitting on a plane flying to Dallas for meetings Norwex head office and I am overwhelmed by the fact that I have just celebrated my 10 years journey with Norwex! To say I am grateful is a major understatement!
When I joined Norwex in 2009 I had no intention of doing anything except making money temporarily to help with paying bills while Brad looked for another job. He had just been laid off and we needed money fast! Once Brad got another job, I was going back to being a stay home mama. I always wanted to be a stay at home mom and had zero desire to have a career.
Oh my… have things ever slowly changed. The steps to my career have been slow-growing, which I believe is why I have been able to grab ahold of the opportunity. If I would have seen what life looks like now 10 years ago, I would have been scared off, I think. Again, I wanted to be a mama and would not have been able to see that I could have both.
I have learned so many things, but a few tops are:
I can do hard things: I have been in so many scary situations from leaving my kids at night crying, being asked to speak at the Australian conference, flying alone on a plane for the first time, dancing in front of people at a flash mob (funny story), visiting China and eating scary things, etc. All of these things and SO many more have made me a much more whole, happier person and I am forever grateful for Norwex!
When you shine, your kids shine! I was so afraid to miss out on being a 100% stay at home mom. Looking now at the opportunities that have come because of Norwex, is more than I could have ever imagined. It is okay and good for my kids to see that there is more to me than being a mama, although that is always the reason I am here on this earth getting up every morning. The financial opportunities that they have been given are endless from the time at our beach house, travel to all over the world, educational opportunities and on and on. Money would not replace me of course, and the secret to Norwex is that I have never had to choose work over my kids!
The friends I have gained in this business are sunshine! I am so grateful for all of the people I have had the opportunity to work with. Many of these people are my best friends and I love them and their families dearly!
I can’t wait to see what the next ten years will bring with my Norwex journey but for now, I just want to say THANK YOU NORWEX!! ☺
