We are moving to Birmingham, Alabama!

We are moving to Birmingham, Alabama!
What?!  Why?!  When?!   Can I have your…?!

First off, for those who live in the Chicagoland area, I’m going to miss you too!  But there is good news, and I’ll get to that here in just a sec.  I’m going to answer the What, Why, When and other questions with some sort of order…

What?!  Yes, Birmingham, Alabama.  

Why?!  My husband, Ryan, has worked for CDW Corporation for 18 years now.  His client-base is all in Alabama and Tennessee.  So, for nearly 2 decades, he has been commuting to downtown Chicago… to talk to people in Alabama and Tennessee - most of whom are in the Birmingham area.  He has reached a point in his professional career where the best way to grow (professionally, personally, and socially) is to be face to face with the people he is talking to day in and day out as often as possible.
The bonus for our family is that he would be based out of our home, so as a Home-schooling, Home-business crew, Home-based Dad is a BIG DEAL.  And we are VERY excited about that.  

When?!  We are planning to put our home in Munster on the market around Mid-March, so we are anticipating a spring move.  

Can I have your…?!   I realize there will be some holes to fill with business here, and I’m excited because many of you are itching for opportunities to grow your own Young Living Business.  So, yeah, there are vendor events, class opportunities, business relationships, chamber of commerce groups, and more to please get involved in.  This has been an opportunity for me to learn already.  If you have ever thought about building an income with Young Living, please know there is plenty of room in the sandbox for you.  Your voice needs to be heard.  There are people who will connect with what YOU have to say and your stories.  You don’t have to have every answer figured out first.  There are 7 billion people on this planet, and hundreds of thousands right here in the Northwest Indiana/Chicagoland region that have not yet experienced how powerful and life-changing Young Living oils and products can be in their lives.    

If you feel that what you need is local support, please reach out to me.  I will help you connect with local team members who are excited to encourage and guide you, and provide the local support you are needing.  

Ryan’s parents and brother live here in the area, and Ryan will need to be back for training and such periodically.  So you better believe the kids and I will be planning trips to come hang out with family and will let you know when we are in the area.  We will plan workshops, classes, and hangout times because we love you and need to see you face to face as often as possible too!

Let’s hang out before we go!   

I’m putting some dates on the calendar, and would love to get to visit with you as much as possible before our big move.  

There’s a couple going on even this week!  

Wednesday, February 12th 6:00-9:00 PM Romance Class  Danielle Kowalawicz is graciously hosting this event at her house this month, while our home is in transition.  Link here for more details:  http://oilyuniversity.com/events/5881/healthy-hangout---february

This Saturday, February 15th 1:00-5:00 PM  Shop My Office!  I have bottles, containers, booklets, resources, display items for vendor events and so much more!  Yes, I plan to continue to share Young Living once I get to Alabama too, but I figure it wouldn’t hurt to make these things available to you, and move a few less boxes.   Want to start doing vendor events?   This is a great chance to snag some gear!

I’ll keep you posted about other events as the details get planned too.  

One more thing...  If you have boxes - especially those starter kit sized or larger and/or the packing material that came inside of it, I would LOVE to take it from you!  :)

Featured Products

When you are looking to spice things up a bit, whether it be for Valentine’s Day or anytime throughout the year, look no further than your oils. Young Living has just what you need to set the mood, balance your emotions/hormones, and create tasty treats that will all work together to create a romantic atmosphere. ;)

  • Diffuse Valor along with Ylang Ylang, just 3 drops each, anytime you need help ‘getting in the mood’ and you want to feel more confident in your own skin.
  • Support those hormones with Progessence Plus which is formulated specifically for women, and ideal for women over 30 that want to feel more relaxed and balanced. For the guys, grab the Mister.
  • Use your Peppermint Vitality to whip up some minty treats using dark chocolate to stimulate the production of endorphins, the chemicals in the brain that create feelings of pleasure.


Oil of the Month

Joy is a beautiful blend that creates an energy that brings joy to the heart, uplifts the soul, and inspires romance. It is the perfect blend to diffuse or apply topically when you are needing that extra mood booster.

Try this combo to create a warm, inviting atmosphere:

  • 5 drops Citrus Fresh
  • 3 drops Joy

PRO TIP: Apply one drop of Joy to your face every day for 30 days and notice the difference. Be sure to take a ‘before’ and ‘after’ pic!

The Abundance Challenge

Every fresh start requires a fresh mindset. The beginning of a NEW Year is the perfect time to reevaluate your thoughts and get your mind ready for action. The purpose of the Abundance Challenge is to help you be more intentional with bringing abundance into your life by focusing on four core areas and using Abundance oil every day. 

The thoughts you think and the words you speak must align if you plan to achieve a certain outcome. When you use the words ‘want’ or ‘need’, it signifies lack or being without. It speaks to limitation and lack of choice. But you DO have a choice! Every decision, every change begins with a choice. You will feel more empowered, more in control, and more equipped to shift your mindset, make lasting changes, and reach your goals when you make the CHOICE to do it and you start consciously shifting your thoughts and words.

To help you do just that, save these daily affirmations to your phone or print them off and hang them up somewhere you will see them every day.

We will dig further into this topic within the
Abundance Challenge. I would love to have you join me!

 Be sure to join the Abundance Challenge by GROworkspace group!


Featured Oil of the Month: Abundance

Obviously, it only makes sense this month that we feature this amazing blend! :)

Abundance is a powerful synergistic blend of 8 essential oils that magnifies the vibration and energy needed to usher abundance into every area of your life.

To use Abundance, place 3 drops into the palm of your hand. Use the opposite hand to make 3 clockwise circles with your fingertips to activate the oil. Apply to your forehead, temples, back of neck, wrists, or anywhere else you feel led. Then cup your hands over you nose and take 3 deep breaths. 

PRO TIP: For added benefit add a drop of Abundance to your wallet, your journal, your list of goals - wherever you need a little abundance in your life. #mindset
