Let me tell you how I really feel!

Let me tell you how I really feel (as if that’s a rarity).  I really feel like women with husbands, who have been out of work for an extended period of time, need to pony up. That’s right, I said it! These women need to get off their asses and stop putting an enormous amount of pressure on your husband to find a new career or job – as if it’s not an extreme challenge for a man in his 40’s, 50’s or 60’s to reinvent himself?!  Go find a job yourself or consider increasing your workload.  It’s do or die in this economy… if my husband lost his job, effective immediately, I would haul my size ten rear end into New York City with the determination and drive to get back into the publishing industry. I would not quit as the burden of job loss would become OURS, not his.  

Entitlement is one of the most ugly characteristics I know and it near sickens me to watch some families (mom and/or dad) bury their heads in the reality of what their financial situation truly is.  We all wish and believe we deserve a life well lived.  It just has to be well earned.
So, if you’re in a situation such as this, and I know SO many who are, trust yourself to know that you’re smart enough and strong enough to help make up for the monies that may have been lost.  Consider this job opportunity with Dillon Road, even IF you are gainfully employed.  Watch how one woman starts and ends her day knowing that she has gained in more ways than one.
I continue to applaud women who have joined a Sales Team, earned a Realtor’s License, gone back to work in Human Resources, become Interior Designers or Event Planners, all for the sake of financial independence- rather than spousal dependence.
We are just as capable as men. Please don’t ever sell yourself short or think otherwise.

The Ultimate Mother’s Day Gift- a Career!

The official Hallmark Holiday named Mother’s Day is approaching quickly.  I tend to believe that we should be celebrated every day rather than one lone Sunday during the month of May.  That’s just me.  Last year I blogged on Butterfly about giving ourselves the gift of time- time off and time out as opposed to our 24-hour TIME IN!  But, if you’ll recall, my time turned into my daughter’s time, as we shared the most perfect bike ride – while serenading one another to our own rendition of Taylor Swift.  What I realized last Mother’s Day is that when my daughter is older than her 8 years, she will want and even demand time of her own… alone (meaning not with me!).


This year I’ve vowed to give myself a NEW gift- the gift of work-life fit. I will continue to allow myself to dabble in ventures that I love- without fear and void of any guilt.  Because, as my mom would say, “You have NOTHING TO LOSE!”  This Mother’s Day I encourage you to give yourself the same gift, the gift of a new venture or adventure if you will, with the belief that you have EVERYTHING TO GAIN. 


Please accept our gift of work-life fit in this ground floor entrepreneurial opportunity because it’s your journey: Join Dillon Road’s team of Image Consultants, an exceptional network of people (lots of moms) passionate about helping men to be their best self by outfitting them with 100% custom tailored dress shirts. Each shirt is designed to each individual’s specific body proportions, physiques, and style preferences. Enjoy this Dillon Road opportunity, earn extra income, and allow it to fit into your life, not the other way around. This Mother’s Day adventure with Dillon Road can be embraced in between your kids’ soccer games, as a compliment to your day job or as a full-time career. It’s your choice. Period.


To learn more about your gift, enriching your life and the lives of those around you as a Dillon Road Independent Image Consultant, click here.  AND, to enter our Mother’s Day contest to WIN a custom made woman or man’s shirt from Dillon Road (value $135), simply “like” Dillon Road on facebook here!

Proving that the aforementioned is NOT just a claim, I offered my services to become an Agency Leader for Worth with the intention of sharing my experience with you. So, what does that mean exactly?  I am committed to hosting/selling the spring and summer 2012 Worth New York line in my home, for just one week.  I will document my experience and which will allow you to experience a run-through of the job by way of me!

Put simply, Worth New York, is offering YOU a career in fashion. I am offering you a behind the scenes look into the job of an Agency Leader, so that you may determine if in fact this is a job for you and your lifestyle.
