My website was hijacked last month and I think that I finally have complete possession of it. I did have to restore the site to March – thus losing some data (posts/images, etc.) but the loss is worth it, if it did indeed “fix” the issue.
Passwords have been updated. Files have been deleted.
I pray that this site is on the positive side of this ordeal.
Have you ever asked your husband a deep question by first asking a crazy question? Yeah, I thought I could throw him off my agenda with the decoy question. We haven’t discussed it further… So, I might have succeeded.
I asked DH what I would be good at selling. His response “you’re the best friend” … Okay, how do I translate that into extra money when going back to college to become a therapist isn’t an option? Btw, I’m in two direct sales companies. #jjwdaily #texasblogger #curious #thebestfriend #mexicanfood #cheeseenchiladasbecauseitisafridayduringlent #dosequis #leticiasrestaurant #weimartexas #chipsandsalsa #queso #quesadillas #drpepper #ourtable
And his response that I’m the best friend and in his mind THAT quality does not make a good salesperson.
Well, I’m not a pushy salesperson. I am a sharer.
I share what I like with people that I think are receptive to what I have to offer. Not all people are receptive and therefore I do not share with everyone. Sometimes I will share with people I sense are not open but I do so anyway because my need to share is greater than the need to share with people who are open to what I want to share. #holyrunonsentence
I share what I’m doing to lose weight (TruVision Health supplements) and what I do for my sanity (running and sewing). I share nifty jewelry (Keep Collective) and pretty clothes (almost everything that @flauntboutiquetx on instagram posts AND LuLaRoe).
I love the look of heels but my feet and lack of coordination require that I wear flats. And so I usually wear (in no particular order): Nike Free Run 5.0, camo Crocs, Sanuk flops and loafers, pretty pink peep toe Cole Haan Nike Air leather flats, and my brand-new-to-me leopard Crocs.
I have other shoes. Cute shoes but they aren’t in heavy rotation. I did snag a pair of brown over-the-knee boots from a shop on Poshmark that I wore during the fall and early winter but it is Spring time in Texas and most of the brown is out of rotation. I love my black tall UGGs but even though I have treated them against the wet weather, I don’t prefer to wear them when the weather is wet/muddy. I also shouldn’t have watched that horrible video on Facebook a while back alleging the horrid ways that the materials were sourced. #shutters
I am currently passively selling my closet on Poshmark and have several items listed on Etsy, in addition to my Square shop on this site and Square’s marketplace. My mission is to rotate items from my possession into other’s hands and create some cash in the process. I accumulate items and periodically/randomly/sporadically, I like to reduce my collection and change direction. I also have yard sales as the weather and my work schedule allows. I love interacting with the public.
I have a gazillion tabs open in my mind and jump between them randomly. The point is… I share and don’t sell. And I finally discovered that I do have a tribe. My tribe consists of my DH, my daughter, my baby sister, and my mama. Ü
What are your thoughts? About this or anything else that you’ve read/seen on the blog… I’d love to hear/read.
Read this post from last year…
Results from the yard sale? I made $100.
Definitely worth it. I spent the day outdoors and talked to people. We set up both tents and I think that I have decided on my favorite “yard sale set-up” for future events. I noticed a marked decrease in people since I wasn’t able to share the event and photos on Facebook, which I will attempt to counteract with posting an ad in the local newspaper for my next event.
Half of my yard sale went towards the $200 that I owe for my portion of the room in Salt Lake City in June. The rest will go towards an extra credit card payment and ultimately count as spending money on my trip.
During the yard sale, I snapped pictures for my Poshmark account and listed additional items in my closet. I sold four items there and will gain $24.25 after these items reach their destinations and Poshmark distributes the money to my account.
Every. Single. Bit. Helps.
I am working on the “selling stuffs” aspect and have added inventory to my Etsy shop. I have more handmade items to photograph and post, which is on my list of the things to do for the week. I also have bunches and bunches of clothes to add to my Poshmark closet.
