New Beginings

Hi, I wanted to share my new journey I began last April while I was still with a company called Chalk Couture. I'm going to go back to September 2017. I was an Empty Nester, The previous May the family I was a nanny for moved to an other state. I was with them for 3 years.  I was wondering what I was going to do. I have two daughters while they where little I had been involved with a couple of direct sales companies. Do you remember Southern Living at Home or Taste of Home? I was with them and loved it. I loved being part of a consultant (family) team, I loved the recognition from the company, the incentive trips I earned and the extra money that I brought into the family that money was fun money. So,  I was looking for something. I have always like to craft, scrapbook, mixed- media, paper crafting plus one of the thing I truly enjoy is teaching. I had been teach at our local scrapbook store until it closed down early in 2017. so, now forward to September 2017 a friend had sent me a video of a Chalk Couture Designer. I knew that instant that that was what I wanted to do! I signed up that next day and from that moment in September to July I had moved up as leadership and grew a team of 125+. You might ask why I left well in April someone told me about A Makers Studio. I was so intrigued with the products specially their paint! I was told if I wanted to update a piece of furniture I didn't need to sand, strip it. I just had to clean it with a product that they carried called Furniture clearer and paint with their brushes. Plus that their products had no VOC and menthol (chemicals that made you ventilate while you worked) I was hooked. So I signed up on the First day they opened for signing up, I was the first of 50 ladies that signed up that day.  One little problem I had was that AMS also carried stencils that had sticky back and reusable plus Chalkpaste. A little conflict of interest. Well someone got wind of me being with AMS and turned me in to compliance with Chalk Couture. It was really a hard decision. I was so close to reaching the top levels of Leadership and my team was growing. it took me several days to decided but I knew in my heart that A Makers' Studio was for me. They had a more diverse product line and I love the Mother Maker herself Amy Howard. I love her passion and the way she runs her business. She has our backs and is teaching us the Makers to be the best that we can be. Teaching us to be #makerbosses to grow personally and she is giving us skills and investing in us. Who wouldn't want someone like that on their side?
Here are some before and afters using the paint, Recuse Restore Paint  I talked about.

You can find the products on my website
