When I was introduced to Foster the Love MN over a year ago, I heard about their mission and felt a pull to help.
Although I was adopted at 9 months old and spent time with a foster family, my story doesn’t at all compare to some of the kids that are suddenly placed into foster care for various reasons.
Foster the Love MN is dedicated to putting backpacks together with things a child might need if they can’t bring anything with them from home, including a special blanket or teddy bear. Beyond that, they also put on special events for foster kids and foster families to create a community for a group that often goes unrecognized for all they do.
In talking to the founder, Katie, I am completely amazed by her huge heart and calling to serve. She started this organization after hearing how much of a need there was in Minnesota and decided to make a difference. She may not realize it, but she’s doing that and so much more! I have no doubt that she makes a major impact in every life she touches.
Today, I gave Katie a check for the full amount of my paycheck in the month of May. A lot of people know I was running for a goal in my business that I proudly hit, but most don’t know it was to give it all to this amazing group.❤️ Hitting that milestone in my business meant I was able to give a even greater amount to help them drive their mission forward. ❤️ There are moments when running a business can be stressful, painful, and sometimes even exhausting, but today, I was reminded why I will always give it my all, and how a simple idea or dream can turn into something so much greater, but you never really know until you try. 🌟
I couldn’t think of a better organization to give to and I know, without a doubt, that this is just the beginning for helping this group do great things!
Thank you, Katie, for sharing your heart and passion with me today. ❤️
On A Serious Note - How Cute Is Lala?! 😻 ... For my overly critical folks, chill 🙄 We just do girly stuff from time to time, nothing more to it. Thanks 🤗 (ps - you can always just raise your kids how you want & allow me to do the same 😬)
I love that Facebook shows you ‘on this day’ posts. Today it reminded me that 3 years ago I started my business with Rodan + Fields.
3 years ago we were the #4 Premium Skincare Brand. I didn’t know what was behind that ‘YES’. I trusted a gut decision and never questioned myself.
Over the past 3 years we’ve become the #1 Premium Skincare in the US. A billion dollar brand growing at a crazy rate. We’ve launched in Australia & released several game changing products (hello #lashboost). And it’s all just getting started.
For those of you who saw that first post & chuckled to yourself, thinking maybe “she’s doing what?” or “we’ll see how long this lasts.” THANK YOU. Your doubt fuels my fire. 😘
To my customers who have trusted the products, all of my business partners who have joined me along the way, or those of you who have just cheered me on but aren’t ready to jump on the train. THANK YOU! You are the reason I keep going!!
Enjoy the Journey! Such fantastic words to live by, it can’t just be about the destination, but the journey along the way. I have big dreams of where Chalk Couture can take me. However, the best part about Chalk Couture isn’t the end game potential, but the journey getting there. I absolutely love everything about Chalk Couture:
❤️ The products
🧡 My amazing team
💛 The company
💚 My journey
It’s Chalk Couture’s first ever convention this week and I am giddy just thinking about it! I can’t wait to spend a few days hanging out with people who are just as obsessed with CC as I am!
CC is brand spanking new, they just launched July of last year. Which means we are still at ground level people!! If you want in on this amazing business opportunity let me know and I can send you more info. Also, stay tuned because we are going to have a new product release July 1st and I will get a sneak peak of all the cute new products this week at convention!! I CANNOT WAIT!
I will be posting a “how to” later on, but not going to lie, this bike string art was no easy task! I kept the bike true to size to match the Chalk Transfer. It was so small with so many details. I smashed my fingers more then once creating it 😂😂😂
Want to know the behind the scenes?! Sitting on my garage floor since we don’t have an office and the kiddos were too loud inside🤪 and Ben stepping up for 30 minutes to entertain them so I could sneak out here and share my heart and some getting started right advice with my newest coaches. .
I’ve spent so many late nights and early mornings at the kitchen table, our couch, or this garage floor investing in our family’s future and my big dreams that God is placing on my heart 💕. Mentoring my team and helping them help others fills my cup and brings so much JOY and is one of the reasons transitioning from a career I loved to staying home full time with my kids has been as easy as it has. .
You don’t need a fancy office to build a life a freedom or a gym to get into the best shape of your life - a little heart, hustle and passion will do✨
New name, same great formula, with a new additional oil! I've always called this serum Liquid Sunshine anyway, so I figured, lets cut the BS and call it what it actually is! I tell people all the time that this serum (formerly called Celestial Face Drops) is my absolute favorite skin care product! It contains amazing oils such as Jojoba, Roseship, Wheatgerm, Marula, Seabuckthorn, Evening Primrose, and now it has PRICKLY PEAR OIL!
Prickly pear oil is a relatively new oil in the beauty world, but I guarantee you will be seeing it more and more. What makes it so great? It contains more Vitamin E than any beauty oil on the market, which helps prevent wrinkles, plumps the skin and gives it firmness. It also absorbs quickly while deeply penetrating and hydrating the skin, leaving even the most dehydrated skin super soft. It contains very high levels in antioxidants which helps stimulate cell renewel, restore elasticity and brightens complexion. This also helps fade dark spots and reduce dark under eye circles. Prickly pear contains the highest amount of Betalains than any known plant (more than acai, goji and beets) which has powerful anti-aging effects. On top of all that, it is ideal for mature and sensitive skin, plus it won't clog pores. Prickly Pear oil does have a big price tag but it is quite labour intensive to produce.
You can buy this product alone or get it in the Complete Kit which saves you $20! Swipe the see the oil and the Kit.
“ I should be more ___________”
“ If only I could _________”
“ Why can’t I _________”
“ I cannot believe I’ve not accomplished _______yet”
Wanna know one of the greatest threats to you as a woman of God...the standard you are setting for yourself daily with negative self talk and doubting the gifts that God has given you. Know what happens when we speak these words in our head or out-loud…we start to believe them.
Then, we start heading in that direction.
My best friend in high school was a long distance runner. One day, while we were running together ( Im sure it was a leisurely stroll for, Jo) she looked over and said “Kelli, stop looking at your feet.” She taught me early on that the best thing I could do to get to my running goal was to just keep my head up. Isn’t that what we’ve gotta remember, friend? Keep our head up. If we’re constantly feeling not enough/inadequate/less than, don’t we need to evaluate where we are trying to go or who we are trying to impress? Easier said than done. But the good news is that we don’t have to figure this out on our own. #praisehands God is not telling you to be anything except who he has designed you to be. Doesn’t matter if you’re still struggling daily or hourly with this. You were created to live free and alive. I don’t know about you, but I'm so weary of living in the bondage of people pleasing, fear and striving for the impossible version of myself that isn’t who. I. am.
Today, step into the freedom of knowing that who you are, in Him, is enough!
I love celebrating my clients and nothing fills my heart when they share their experience of working together!
"Where do I even begin, about four months ago Lisa came into my life at the perfect time. At first I'd never thought I would need a career coach, then again, I wasn't really sure what a career coach did. That all changed after our first call.
I was moved by the way she provoked different thoughts that provided me clarity in what I wanted out of my career and the tools to obtain it.
To be honest, before working with Lisa I was just scared to face change because I was complacent.
Lisa empowered me to go after what I really wanted and she gave me the self-esteem so I wouldn't sell myself short.
This experience not only improved my career, but my overall work life balance and getting the most out of every situation."
