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. 

TTofT #19 I Made It

Ten Things of Thankful

 

 

 

 

 

Ah.  I made it this weekend to reunite with Ten Things of Thankful and realized, life sometimes just sucks, so I really need to stick to TTofT.  Even writing one a day in my paper journal.  <still love a clean sheet of paper and an awesome pen>

1.  I got to spend time with my daughters Tuesday.  Yes, I let them skip a day of school.  However, their grades are exceptional, they rarely miss days ‘just cause’ and it’s almost the end of the 1st 9 weeks.  So, since they both were in dire need of ‘Autumn/Winter is coming’ clothes, we went to the mall and shopped.  Found an awesome store for my 7 year old. It’s The Children’s Place.  I don’t know how I missed this store, but my 7 year old is built a lot like I was growing up. Slim and no hips to hold her jeans up but long legs so a size that may fit her waist, will look like ‘high waters’.  This store had clothes that looked amazing on her!

2.  This weekend is the Newbern Festival that I’ve mentioned a trillion times on here so far since the end of August.  It’s an all weekend Fall Festival where an entire street is closed off, booths are every where with gorgeous homemade items, the people who live on the street are friendly and some have garage sales. Talk about the right timing.  Food, ice cream, funnel cakes, the historic museum is open, a re-enactment of the Civil War battle that took place there, pony rides, face paintings, bluegrass music band live, and they can be heard almost anywhere along the street.  My favorite part is heading back to the vehicle to leave, and stopping by a local farmer’s home to buy the girls’ pumpkins.  He grows some huge, some tiny, some fantastic, some gourds.   The cool thing is, he is local.  Right now I’m very much on a ‘screw the Wal-Mart Supercenters’ kick. 

3.  I’m a little saddened that my oldest daughter won’t be with us tomorrow.  She was invited a month ago to head to Carowinds, the cool amusement park in N.C.  I love it there too.  Though I haven’t been in years.  In fact, last time I was there, they had recently put in their stand-up roller coaster, if that tells ya it’s been awhile. I’m thankful she gets to go though.  She’s been once but was much younger and I know she’ll enjoy herself. I’m considering waiting until Sunday to attend the festival, so she can go.  But, Sunday is when the booths start packing up, the band starts shutting down, and the actors in the Civil War battle stay on the ground too long, scaring children who think they are dead, for real. 

4.  I’m very thankful for the wonderful, mild weather.  Not too hot, not too cold, just perfect.  

5.  I’m thankful that the mountains here are starting to change colors and I cannot wait to take a stroll or ride and just stop every where to snap some photos.   I actually have a photo of me in the fall of 2000, when my best friend and I started making this a tradition of sorts.  Our grannies had passed away on the same day that year, who both raised us ironically enough.  They passed away September 12th, 2000 so the photos were a way of passing time.

6.  I read everyday tips on organizing, decor, storage, ect.  I love the idea of being organized and super creative with decor.  I love the idea of having a budget.  I am thankful that for months now I have poured over articles, printed out list, tried to stick to a routine, and I finally realized, I’m just not organized. I can be creative with something to go by.  Budget………..ummm……….. I have picked up on one small saving tip.  That’s when I balance my checkbook, to round up or down.  Example if I have $30.36 in my checking and I subtract $10, I leave off the $0.36.  Or if I make a direct deposit of $40.25, I’ll only add the $40.  It’s tricking my mind into leaving some change in there.  I just began, so more on this later.  I think the hard part will be when my statement comes via email, and my mind will see what my balance is.  Kinda hard to trick my mind like that. lol

7.  I am thankful that out of all the articles I have went through, I did pick up on a wonderful tip that I’m sure everyone in the world knows about…………..but I just discovered, vinegar cleans almost anything! lol

8.  I am impatiently waiting for my samples of Perfectly Posh skin products.  Patience is a virtue I lack, and sensitive skin or at least on my face is tiring.  This product is supposed to be wonderful at balancing  out dry/oily skin, not breaking out sensitive skin, and lots of other good things.  If I enjoy the product and can stand by what it represents, then I think I may start selling it on the side.  I have sold Beauti Control products which was mostly make-up but had other products like cleansers, toners………….this was 2003.  Business was rather good.  I remember being excited that a lady I met on AOL Blogs way back, lived in N.Y. and she frequently visited my website of Beauti Control and became a very reliable customer.  Wish I could remember her name.  

9.  Happy I bought some black nail polish while at the mall and Justin Timberlake’s C.D. ‘The 20/20 Experience’.  I like all the songs,some more than others.  The nail polish, I go through stages on and off where I will have my nails professionally done.  Then after about 4 months of having to go get refills, and they frankly start being more of a hassle, I usually end up soaking them off myself in fingernail polish remover, then go a few weeks having to file my nails and the thick ‘fake parts’ off.  Then I keep them clipped short.   For some reason black looks very well on my short fingernails, and somewhat fat fingers.  So, until next time I decide my manicure needs extra, I’m content.

10.  I’m thankful I had time to write out my Ten Things of Thankful.  Glad I remembered to head over to Considerings.  I enjoy taking time out to share little things and I hope this one is a valid ‘thankful’.  It isn’t a cop out because I couldn’t decide on a 10th thing to share.  I truly am glad I remembered.  

What are you most thankful for this week?  Link up at Lizzi’s and share!!
