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.

Media vs Presidents

Where was everyone’s outrage when Obama tried the same thing back in 2009 and he wasn’t even the first President to try such a thing. This article was from CBS News. Go look it up yourselves 
By JEFF GREENFIELD CBS October 23, 2009, 6:43 PM

President Obama’s Feud with FOX News
After months of taking incoming fire from the prime-time stars of Fox News, the Obama White House is firing back, charging that FOX News is different from all other news.
“FOX News often operates almost as either the research arm or the communications arm of the Republican party,” said Anita Dunn, White House communications director.
“If media is operating basically as a talk radio format, then that’s one thing, and if it’s operating as a news outlet, then that’s another,” Mr. Obama said.
And the White House has gone beyond words, reports CBS News senior political correspondent Jeff Greenfield. Last Sept. 20, the president went on every Sunday news show – except Chris Wallace’s show on FOX. And on Thursday, the Treasury Department tried to exclude FOX News from pool coverage of interviews with a key official. It backed down after strong protests from the press.
“All the networks said, that’s it, you’ve crossed the line,” said CBS News White House correspondent Chip Reid.
Tension between presidents and the press is as old as the Republic. FDR was so incensed by the war reporting of one New York Daily News correspondent he tried to present him with an Iron Cross from Nazi Germany. John Kennedy tried to get New York Timesman David Halberstam pulled out of Vietnam; and Vice-President Spiro Agnew’s assaults on the network press is legendary.
“We have more than our share of nattering nabobs of negativism,” Agnew said.
What gives this dust-up special irony is that FOX News success comes in no small part from its ability to convince its viewers that the “mainstream” media are slanted to the left. Now, the White House is arguing that the network is not a real news organization at all, and that has brought some mainstream media voices to its defense.
There’s no question that FOX’s prime-time voices come from the right. Moreover, its owner, Rupert Murdoch is a staunch conservative, and its first and only CEO, Roger Ailes, is a veteran of Republican media wars.
But MSNBC in prime-time has its own lineup of commentators – all of whom are on the left side of the spectrum, some of whom met with the president the White House this week.
So why is the White House out to “de-legitimize” FOX? Not because it has opinions, but because its opinion voices are so hostile to Mr. Obama – and because FOX News is, as it has been for a decade, by far the most watched of the cable news networks. In fact, its ratings have increased 13 percent this summer. So if FOX is feeling any pain from the White House’s stance, it’s crying all the way to the bank.

Happy Memorial Day – Post 225

Happy-Memorial-Day-2014-As-Greeting-Card

 

Everyone says “Happy Memorial Day.”  I understand how commercialism has grabbed up this day too.  I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t part of it.  All the local swimming areas opened this weekend.  Store sales, cook-outs, this weekend has been gorgeous outside, and so in a way, it marks the beginning of summer.                   Then I think of my cousin who has served in the United States Navy since he was 18 years old and he is now stationed in Japan with his family and he’s going to be in his mid 30’s soon.  I think about how my community I have resided in for 37 years has 16 grave markers for Confederate Soldiers, unknown names, but the flags are there this weekend.  I think of a mother and family that moved to this small community because her grandparents had lived here their entire lives.  She moved her children here, and her daughter, Madison, and my oldest, Madison, hit it off.  She had moved her family here because her husband was shipped to Afghanistan 8 months ago.                                                                                                                                                                                                            I’m almost sure this is my 225th post to this blog.  I’m sorry I’ve neglected this blog, as well as my blog over at Blogger.  I have missed some wonderful weekends of Ten Things of Thankful, hosted by Lizzi.  I am one that can benefit greatly from remembering my blessings.  Someone once told me, though I have forgotten who, to write in my journal everyday 3 things I’m thankful for, make me happy, is special about me, or special about loved ones that have a positive impact in my life.  I’m not sure how I started slipping on that.  I am proud of this blog. I love keeping my poems and poetry type prompts over on My Constant Thoughts.  I also enjoy the freedom this blog allows.  Flash fiction, why not.  List of things in variety, of course.  Book reviews, definitely.  Interviews with other bloggers who have published their work,  hell yes.                                                                                                 I’m not so sure that Memorial Day should be a “Happy” time.  It’s natural to follow some traditions of celebrating, but I hope everyone takes a moment of time and remembers our fallen soldiers that gave their lives so we can cook-out and celebrate.    With this being said, I hope everyone has a safe and enjoyable Memorial Day.  If I had to choose 3 things at this moment; 1. My girls’ and how much love they bring into my heart.  2.  Thankful for the freedoms I do have and advantages that come from being free.  3.  Grateful to all the men and women serving in the USA’s military, a huge salute to the ones gone, and wishes for all the soldiers to remain safe.  I’d like to thank all the soldiers who have fought for freedom.
