Perfectly Posh – My Business 

 

The Ritual

I started selling Perfectly Posh back in April and I wanted to share about the product and my experience as a consultant so far. 

First, I absolutely love the products or I wouldn’t have became a consultant.  I tried Perfectly Posh for the 1st time in 2012.  They were offering The Ritual (the pink mask on my face above)  as a sample. Once the sample arrived, you used it, snapped a photo,  and then shared your photo on social media for a chance to win a prize and be featured in their new catalog. 

The Ritual is a consultant only product and I have been wanting to sale Perfectly Posh since that year. I finally just decided it was time.  This isn’t like your grandmother’s Avon or your aunt’s Mary Kay. 

In 2002, I was working a full time job, my daughter was 1 1/2 years old, and I become a Beauty Control Consultant.  This required a lot of in home parties, recruiting others, and was time consuming without much of a reward. I live in a small town so there were too many consultants and I didn’t know eenough people to separate my business from anyone else’s.  At this time, I had AOL Journal. There wasn’t My Space or Facebook. AOL Journals was my first experience in a blogging type community.  I left post about my daily life, some poetry, and things of that nature. I gained some loyal followers from different states and received a lot of different comments from helping me, encouraging me, and judging me. So most of my sales came from people out of state. 

Fast forward to now, Perfectly Posh is set up to utilize social medias. You have the option to run your business however you want; you can have in home parties but so far I’ve done well with Facebook parties.

Perfectly Posh products are made in the USA with natural based ingredients simply to pamper your skin. The products range from face washes/ mask to hair products. I love the BFF Face Wash especially using Love Me Do hydrating facial oil with it. They come in a collection but these two are what I’ve tried so far. There are lines of Big Fat Yummy Hand Creme and a line of Skin Sticks. There are body washes, body mask,  body scrubs, foot scrubs, lip balms,  and lip scrubs.  There are products for men such as Big Hairy Beast shave gel and aftershave.  

The products come with a list of ingredients used and what each ingredient is for. For example,  Totes Oats is a product for your face that helps with acne, poisin oak, and other skin problems. 

Perfectly Posh

On the business aspect,  Perfectly Posh is different from what I experienced with Beauty Control. Perfectly Posh has a training academy online that sets your goals in 15 days, 30 days, 60 days, and 90 days. As you go through the academy you learn everything you need to do to make the most out of your business. New consultants are titled Protégé.  After completing goals you can move up from Protégé to the rank title Pink. Then you can begin the Pink academy.  Perks are points posh gives you that can be used toward products and they have a system that will help you purchase your starter kit using Perks.  Customers that order begin getting Perks. If someone host a party for you they receive Perks. So not only does Perfectly Posh reward its consultants,  it also rewards customers. 

From online parties to vendor events,  Perfectly Posh offers different ways to build your business up. They pay their consultants through ProPay using a debit card and you can get paid every Wednesday depending on sales.  You start out earning 20% commission on sales and as you move up in rank, so does the percentage. 

Since this blog and writing are a huge part of my life, I wanted to share my experience with Posh so far. So far, my experience has been terrific.  

Right now my cousin in Georgia,  Chasity,  is hosting a Facebook party for me. This helps her and myself. She ordered from me when I began selling Perfectly Posh and she loved her products and agreed to host a party. Her party is going on now until June 12th and Tuesday June 6th at 7 p.m. is game night on her Facebook event.  It gives customers a chance to learn about the products, play games, and win products from the comfort of their own home. If anyone has any questions for me, please don’t hesitate to ask. 

You can visit my Perfectly Posh website to browse through products and place an order if you’d like at http://donettas.po.sh and if you place an order before the 12th, please select Girl’s Nite with Chasity and Posh at checkout to help my cousins first party become a success. Thank you in advance. 

Liars

There will always be 

my side,  your side , 

with the truth in between. 

 Oh, but the truth can be

manipulated.

Memories revised, facts unsaid,

minds that change.

It’s our lies that never falter.

Wrapping  us in comfort.

When all else falls apart,

 they cradle our heads,

lull us to sleep at night. 

When is enough ever enough? 

I hear you saying, 

“I can’t recall.”

No more. I am done.

I cannot accept 

your recollection 

when you claim forgetfulness.

I’m a liar.

So are you.

I can sleep with my fable.

Looking for Mary Gabriel – Book Review

423760

It is rare for me to read a book that makes me cry. I’ve had books touch my heart in the same way a good song will. It was different with Looking for Mary Gabriel. I stumbled onto a part that you don’t see coming, and it’s shockingly heartbreaking. 

Bonita Gaberiel wants a normal childhood with a normal sister but there’s nothing normal about her younger sister, Mary. Mary suffers from a mental illness that causes her to act on impulse, see and hear things no one else can, and to take off without warning. Bonita’s father appoints her Mary’s keeper. At times it seems he’s only trying to instill the importance of family. Then there are moments when he’s asking too much and his motives are questionable. Bonita and Mary’s mother had a sister who suffered with mental illness that led her to commit suicide. Their mother worries it’s her fault and she doesn’t want Bonita to ever feel responsible for Mary but rather than share this with Bonita, it is kept secret from her. At times it appears their mother is wanting to protect Bonita and other times it seems she just can’t deal with her sister’s death. 

Bonita struggles with wanting to protect her sister and wanting a normal life away from Mary. A tragedy occurs which leads Bonita away from her family and then another tragedy happens that cuts Bonita’s ties with her family. She chooses a quite life hidden away from family and friends who love her more than she thought possible. With the passing of Bonita and Mary’s father, Bonita is forced to emerge from her hidden life to handle funeral arrangements and deal with Mary. What she thought was true is contradicted by what she learns is true. 

Beautifully and poetically written, the story of a family that is flawed is wonderfully conveyed on every page. ‘Looking for Mary Gabriel’ is a story that shares the love of family and the harsh truths about family making it relatable. It’s a book that can be read a 2nd and 3rd time; each time bringing  some new fascination to the reader. I give it 5 stars and recommend it to everyone who loves reading.
