Special Guests- 3 Fabulous Uncommon Women Sharing Their Journeys of Making Their Dream Businesses Realities

Fireside Chat: Balancing Priorities and Living in Peace

Where do you get your business cards printed? How do you manage your website -or how did you get started? What are some good tips on product and table displays?

Want to know the answers? Join us for another fun night with the girls! This time we’ll be featuring an open forum on small business tips (more like a talk around the living room over glasses of wine,) hear from several women in various stages of their business development and learn how to balance our priorities so we can truly live with peace and purpose.

We’ll be hearing from Amy Bissonett of Discovery Design, Dian VerColen of Cameo Chocolates, and Jen Hoover of Pearl Salon & Studio, all local small business owners who have inspiring stories of their journey in small businesses!  Look for interviews with all three women coming soon!

Not into business? You will be somewhere down the line, and -trust me- you want to hear the great tips all these women have on marketing, sales development, and learning to ride the waves of launching your dreams.

Join us and bring a friend -and a notepad!





Press Your Reset Button

21 09 2009

Sometimes we just don’t know when to stop, do we? Ambition, enthusiasm, guilt, responsibilities -all these things push us to keep going and take on more “to dos.”  Think about where you are right now.  Is your plate overflowing and your stress level ridiculously high?

I recently found myself in this all-too familiar boat.  Actually I think I’m still in it, but last night I had a peaceful breakthrough that I hope by sharing will help you to get a grasp on any runaway trains you have in your life.

My enthusiasm often gets me into trouble. So many fun ideas, relationships and ventures but not enough time.  Between starting up Uncommon Women, my photography business, becoming a rep for BeautiControl (which I LOVE!) plus being 5 months pregnant and the mother of a 2 year old, I found myself hyperventilating last night. “What have I done?!  I can’t handle all this -but I really want too!  I love it all!”  My spiritual life was suffering from lack of quiet time, my brain was constantly on high gear and my to-do list had so many imperative items that needed to be accomplished, say, yesterday.  But then I realized something:

I am in control.

I am in control of what’s on my to-do list.  I dictate what’s mandatory and what demands my attention. A perspective shift was occurring and I found my breath and heart rate slowing, and my stress level dropping.  I do have lots of exciting things going on in my life right now, and with 4 months to go before my world comes to a halt for a few months (after baby #2 arrives) I want to get as much done as possible.  But I get to decide what commands my schedule, what crowds my brain, what my priorities are.

Today my priorities are to spend some extra play time with my son.  To connect with a few family members and friends.  To have some quality time with God and seek his perspective for my life and these new, exciting opportunities.  I am going to breathe today and focus on what is truly important.

Press that reset button with me today and reorder your priorities so you may live in peace and in the fullness of life.  God bless your day and your journey.





A “Looking Fabulous” Follow Up By Stylist Jen Hoover

13 09 2009
Hi Ladies!!
It was so, so fun chatting the other night at Kelly’s, and I hope that you all learned a thing or two (or three!) from my demonstration.  I love to teach what I know, and really want to continue  in helping you reach your beauty goals.
Hair, skin, and make-up may be on the outside, but it’s about feeling worthy on the inside to look and feel as you should -beautiful and shining! So take L’Oréal’s advice and do it “because you’re worth it”!

I wanted to send a memo out with some of the products I mentioned.
Urban Decay also makes a nice shadow primer, but you will be paying about 3 times as much for the same product.
Eyeshadow primer is to be used whenever applying shadow, or on it’s own, and foundation primer to be used when wanting foundation to last extra long, or to help smooth complexion.

-For oily skin, I suggest Make-up Forever’s All Mat primer.
-Also, oily skins will enjoy Make-up Forever’s Mat Velvet foundation line, available in Sephora.
-For normal to dry skin types I reccomend Beauti Control foundations, their Secret Agent foundation is very nice and natural looking.
-If  anti-aging benefits sound good to you, they make a regeneration foundation.
-All of the BC products you can order through me, and if you’re interested in earning some free things, you should host a spa party at your house with your friends! The other things can be found at Sephora.

So remember- clean face, and open eyes!!
