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.
40-something mama, wife, blogger – who shares her crafty and ordinary life with her family, their three tiny dogs, a fat tortoiseshell cat, – and sewing room that is in a perennial work in progress.
A native Texan, who spent one year in Georgia and over a decade as a single mom, is now happily married and sharing her opinions on products and life in photos and words strung together.
