Keep Moving Forward

Take the step. Tip toe if you must but take the step.

So many people are stuck in their daily lives, always complaining, and hoping things will get better but never do anything about it! Well now is the time to change!

Quit talking about how things are and enabling the past, because that will keep you standing still. That internal conversation is the easiest way to keep reliving the past and living that same experience in your future over and over. Almost like the movie Groundhog Day. The same awful day over and over. The same disappointments, same boyfriend, health challenges, over and over. If you want to change where you’ve been, change the story you tell now.

Make a list of the new you! The new life. The new health. Make a list of what you would like to accomplish. Make a list of your perfect day, your dream life. Read it every day, feel the feelings of having it now. Get emotionally invested in how you would feel as if it were actually happening in the present.

And don’t sweat the small stuff. Do the big things first. Talk about where you are going. Talk about how good you will feel once you get there. Talk about how good you feel NOW. When your present feels like you want it to be, in the future, it most certainly is on it’s way to becoming part of your experience. Don’t forget to surround yourself with people who bring you joy and believe in your vision because a negative environment can be like glue on your shoes as you try to walk.

If you are not happy in your now, just move, take a step, tip toe if you must, but don’t stand still.

The Beauty of a Product Brokerage Company

A little about my company; and what motivates me!  I own a shop.com site that product brokers for over 2500 products that my husband and I use daily, ok we don’t use all 2500, but I would say I LOT!  As a product brokerage company our company does not manufacture any one product or specialize in a single service, which allows us to swing with the marketplace and capitalize on current consumer demands.

Unlike many niche companies that live or die by the success of one product, we are able to offer a variety of products and brands across numerous multibillion-dollar markets. From health and nutrition to cosmetics, weight management to home and garden, we will always provide the most popular products.  This flexibility ensures stability, profitability and most importantly, longevity.

I’m specializing now in our Motives Cosmetics line.  This product brokerage concept allows me to always carry the best of the best.  Since one manufacturer may create the best mascara and another creates the best eye liner, I have access to both.  In my many marketing classes over the years, we were taught that huge companies take a product and label it with one label, and take the same product and label it another brand.  Similar to this concept, we are able to tap into the best products in each market.

In addition, we form long-lasting relationships with our manufacturers, and unlike some companies, we don’t just shop around for the best price. Instead, relationships are established with manufacturers that will produce consistent quality products from year to year.

When a popular ingredient is discovered, we are able to quickly develop new products and bring them to market because of this business model. Every year, new products and product lines are being created to stay ahead of the competition. And since only limited quantities are stored in-house at any given time, this cuts down on consumer cost and ensures the freshest potency.

The product brokerage concept carries far beyond our exclusive brands. Through SHOP.COM, we can offer millions of additional products and services from well-known stores like Target, Nike, REI and more. The cost is the same as it would be shopping directly from the store’s site, but with our partnerships we are able to pay Cashback, whereas individual sites do not.

This company and these concepts are my motivation!  In fact, it keeps me up at night with all the possibilities running through my head!  Happy Saturday!

National Day of Awesomeness

March 10th, the International Day of Awesomeness!

The International Day of Awesomeness is a celebration of awesomeness. So why March 10th?  It’s Chuck Norris’ birthday of course.  The ultimate awesome man!  People are awesome every day, frequently don’t realize it, and their feats of awesomeness are rarely recognized.  So let’s fix that, with a special day to both perform and celebrate feats of awesomeness!

The way to celebrate The International Day of Awesomeness is simple.   Just be awesome.  So on this day, I would like to dedicate this post to my good friend, and business partner Jerry Fisher!

No one can be perfect, but everyone can be awesome!  And Mr. Gerald Fisher executes this behavior on a daily basis!  He is going for his masters, successfully runs a Mexican restaurant, and internet franchise.  Has a part time accountant job, is a social media magnet, stays up to date in the entertainment industry, and permeates positivity!

Celebrate a little Jerry time today on this International Day of Awesomeness!

Awesome Jerry

Starting Out Strong!

Hello!  So this is my VERY first blog post!  I hope you find a little bit of yourself in me!  I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin, close to the big city of Milwaukee, with a jeans and t-shirt mentality.  I recently married the love of my life that pushes me and supports me in everything I do.  He’s an up north guy, who has a kind heart and inspires so many to live the life of their dreams!  I love being in the outdoors, traveling, being surrounded by friends and family, and am passionate about creating the best possible life God intended for me!

I’ve always had a business owner state of mind; the 9-5 job never enticed me, no matter what income goes along with it.  I’m a true entrepreneur.  I own a traditional business and all the headaches that go along with it.  What drives me is my internet business, shopdanib.com.  I’m building a business that will give me time and financial freedom to pursue my dreams.  My business is allowing me to focus on my passions of beauty, health, and traveling.  Best of all, I work with a group of people who have similar mindsets: positive, dream orientated and love helping others!

“Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t!” What are you doing today to get you where you want to be tomorrow?
