There’s a lot of talk in the mom world about community. There are mom blogs, mom groups, mom forums, you name it. It can be a lonely time when you’re first left home with this little bundle and I remember spending hours scrolling through social media and the internet to stay sane while I spent what seemed like endless hours nursing.

It was during this time I really began to learn more about the products I use every day on my skin and my baby’s skin. I was stunned to find out how little they are regulated. I, like most of you, assumed that if I could buy it at the drugstore or supermarket, it was safe. As I began to research what products to use on Alice, I quickly learned that’s not true. The chemicals in baby soap are linked to cancer, early puberty and a myriad of other health issues. Baby soap. Really.

It was also during this time I found Beautycounter and the amazing community of women on a mission to educate and empower others to make safer choices. Since becoming a consultant, I’ve been welcomed with open arms into a community of like minded women that all share a same mindset and goals. I’m kicking myself now that I didn’t become part of the #betterbeauty movement sooner. The hours spent randomly scrolling Facebook and Twitter could have been spent sharing the mission and what I’ve learned about the state of the industry. The residual income and the access to discounted products that I was buying anyway is great too.

If you’re searching for a community of like minded women interested in loaning your voice to making real change that will impact not only our generation, but generations to come, shoot me an email and I’ll give you the details.
