December 1 was my three-year anniversary with Pure Romance. I’m actually teary as I write this, because this business has taught me more about myself than any other I’ve ever had, and certainly more than I could’ve ever anticipated.
I particularly remember one team retreat where I sat in front of a room of women, bawling my eyes out, telling them about all of the fears I had and ways that I held myself back in life and in the business. And they cheered me on. They told me I could do it. I needed that.
I have learned more than just sales and marketing, more than just sexual health and education, more than just jokes and entertaining, and even more than just a true sense of sisterhood; I learned how it feels to try and succeed, and how to still feel successful when I try and fail. I used to be so afraid to try.
I have also seen this business work for other women, and have been overjoyed to have been a part of bringing it into their lives, to have built a team of strong, empowered women in The Pleasure Principle.
Micah told me the other day how proud he was of me because so many people get started and give up, but I haven’t given up, no matter what. There have definitely been challenges, most of which I created in my own mind (and I still absolutely do some things wrong). For sure, I’m not perfect. But I haven’t given up. That’s one thing I have done perfectly. I finally learned how not to give up.
I feel completely grateful to have been given this business opportunity (thank you to my original sponsor, Angela Kroslak Reynolds), to my current sponsor for helping me learn these deep lessons about myself, Mia Rivero, and for my tribe of clients, friends, and family who have been so supportive! Thank you, dear tribe!
To many more years of empowering, educating, and entertaining!
P.S. This photo was from the night I made the decision to start my business. Micah bought me my success kit for Christmas. That night, I met President and CEO of Pure Romance Chris Cicchinelli, and I was SO excited! It was called an Evening of Opportunity, and it just so happens we have another EOO coming up in two weeks. If you’re interested in joining me, let me know!
