Let Me Share A "Seacret"

There is a saying that says everything happens for a reason and I truly believe that to be true.      Last fall when things were upside down with healthcare, it was painfully obvious to me that I was unsure of where my business was headed.     It has been hard work building my client base, but with more than 80% of my clientele losing their current health insurance plan and many not sure if they still wanted it because of the new healthcare law, I was overwhelmed and really anxious.      Thankfully, things have calmed down and I have been blessed to keep the majority of my clients, but it came with many sleepless nights and me having to take a good hard look at what would happen should all these clients choose not to pursue their healthcare further.      

When all this was going on and to be truthful with you, I decided to take on a part time position during the holiday season at Macy's.   I felt that the extra money would be helpful for the holidays and the experience would be new and help me to put things in perspective.   The position that I took is called Support and Recovery.  To put it simply, I clean up the fitting rooms, organize, fold and put clothes away,  and just attempt to make things look presentable and ready to purchase.   It may not sound like hard work, but honestly, I have a new found respect for anyone that works in retail.     It is hard work and when my shift is over, I am wiped out.   I have stayed on since the holiday to help when the store is having a big sale, however, I have recently given a notice to stop working there the week after Mother's Day.    I don't regret doing it because I believe that God was showing me things that I needed to see these last few months.      

Taking on this part time position taught me how much I love working for myself.     I love setting my own schedule and although I still work by appointment in insurance, I have the ability to work it around my home life.   I also learned that I have missed being around people each day.    Before I worked in the insurance industry,  I worked as a nail technician for 27 years.  I was around people every single day and enjoyed the friendships it brought me.   People were happy to see me and enjoyed doing something special for themselves.  Although I meet with people each day in the insurance industry and have made some great friends because of it, insurance is a product that doesn't get most people real excited.    

As only God can do, he saw to it that a dear friend of mine invited me to go to a Mud and Margarita Spa party at a local Chamber of Commerce that she belonged to in the fall as well.     She had shown me the products before and quite frankly, I was eager to try them.  I purchased a few products that night and within a few days knew that these products were special.   The name of the these skin care products is Seacret Direct.   Seacret Direct only markets, sells, and specializes in skin care products.  These products are made from the Dead Sea and have immediate results.    The Dead Sea is known for it's therapeutic qualities in helping with skin care conditions such as eczema and psoriasis.    Because my husband has eczema that flares up during the winter months, I purchased some for him as well.    When my friend brought up the fact that I could earn some free product and possibly even some extra income, I was a bit intrigued, but not overly eager to sell them.  After speaking with her, though, and continuing to love the products more every time I used them, I knew she was right.   Even my husband loved using them!   I scheduled my first "WOW" party because these products literally make you say "WOW"  when you are trying them out.     My first party was a huge success and I signed up to be a "Seacret Agent" in February.     I am having a blast meeting with people one on one to show them the product, setting up "WOW" parties, and most importantly, earning free product and even some extra income.     Seacret Direct is a MLM (multi-level marketing) company and I am honored, proud, and excited to see the growth the company is experiencing.    It is another business for me, but as I said, I learned from working at Macy's just how much I love working for myself.    I can set my own time to meet with people and still do my insurance business at the same time.  

There may be some people that are wondering why I would choose to do another business when I have an insurance business that I am still growing.     In fact, at the same time that I started Seacret, I also hired a new insurance agent to work and specialize in both Life and Medicare Insurance.     When I look back at last fall and the uncertainty that healthcare brought me and so many others, I have to say that I am only looking out for my family.     I have worked way too hard to stop working in the insurance industry, but I also know that all the changes that we have had these last few months only means that more change is coming.    I can honestly share from my heart that God was preparing me last fall to accept the changes, make adjustments, and putting the right people and circumstances to help me through it all.     I have to personally thank Terri Pattison, my dear friend,  for sharing her "Seacret" with me and not being afraid to tell me about the opportunity.  

Lastly, this product is one that I can take around the world.     It's much to good to keep a "Seacret" and it is exciting to share it every day.    If you would like to experience the products yourself by having a facial, getting together with friends and family, or even earn free products and some extra income, I welcome the opportunity to talk with you.     In the meantime, take a look at this video and learn why I fell in love with these products.
