So after a long day out and about at the CHFA trade show, I have to say damn this industry is freakin’ awesome. I feel like I’ve absorbed so much about the brands that I sell at work from the people who brought those successful brands to market - a true godsend considering how valuable insider and personal testimony is when selling a product (people want to know that you’ve either tried what you’re selling or know someone who did and liked it). I also got a TON of free samples, which I can’t wait to start using from the top brands in Minerals, Supplements, Greens and Probiotics - September detox I’m gonna kick yo’ ass!
All of this has been giving me these little cosmic nudges of intuition all day that this is where I belong. I know this because of the level of caring put out there and how much I share in common with all of the people at the show. Everyone around me seemed to have a background in either environmentalism, sciences or in holistic practices towards life, aka an integrated, all encompassing approach to well being that taps into not just the physical, but also the mental and the emotional aspects of life too. I find that to be particularly relevant and inspiring because A) It means that I’m not alone (always a good feeling to know you’re not batshit crazy) and B) there are way more people out there who are my target audience, then I first suspected, right here in Toronto (The Metro Toronto Convention Center was popping off!), and who would and are willing to buy organic Mineral Makeup that is locally made.
And no, I’m not saying that I’m in this for the money. In fact that’s not what this is about at all. Money is just the wonderful outcome for expressing myself through a creative endeavour that hones in on all of my environmental, socio-economic, emotional and mental sensibilities, and a lil bit of swagger too.
So with that I just want to leave you with the feeling that life get’s pretty amazing when you start moving in the direction of your dreams. That feeling you start to get is called fulfillment and all you have to do is move and the way will open. I also want to let you know that I think you’re incredible, and there is something wonderful coming to you if you’ve been looking. All you have to do is put it out there that you want to move forward in your life, and stuff will just start happening for you. That’s the only recipe for success that I’ve so far picked up, and let me tell you, it’s been a trip and a half of fulfilling, rewarding, and gratitude inducing experience.
