Tuesdays are my days. I get up early, I do a longer yoga, a walk or run by myself, to the bookstore to work on my business, then to JOY to work on that business. I wander home to snuggle the family, and wrap up anything still on my mind.
I love being a mom, but I need to make sure I take time to be me as well. To get out of the house. To connect. To grow.
I want to show my daughter that her mom does work that matters. That’s why my work with Beautycounter is so meaningful to me. I can see the direct results of our advocacy and education work. I can see the healthier skin and enjoy the extra income. I can be home with my family but still be doing something that matters.
When I learned that the personal care and cosmetics industry is functionally unregulated, the chemicals and other ingredients are linked to major illnesses and cancers, I had to act.
Let that sink in. We deserve better, and Beautycounter shows us every day we can have safer products that perform. We don’t have to settle.
