How do you know that you have landed in the right place?
When you show up in a place you’ve never been and spend the weekend with Facebook friends that you have never met and they love on you like Jesus would and they talk about how the foundation of our businesses should be built upon the solid rock of Jesus Christ. And then you spend an evening sitting together to sing hymnals and to pray and share testimonies.
When I got on that road to Tennessee last Thursday, I was excited to meet up with my team to learn all the things to build my Plexus business, my pen and notepad were ready. Instead what I learned was how to love more and how to serve more, so that God could be glorified by this business.
I know, I have heard the comments, many of which are valid, but at it’s core, this business is about serving and giving and growing in Christ.
My heart is overflowing from all the laughter, hugs and genuine love that I have never experienced in all my years of working. If you want hope and an opportunity to love and to serve, then I am inviting you to a experience a better way.
Being an entrepreneur is not easy, it doesn’t come with a step by step manual like a job, which makes the learning curve so steep for people entering the network marketing industry. Which is why many people become overwhelmed and quit.
Here is the deal, network marketing is about service and we just happen to have a product or service that can benefit so many as a financial opportunity or in some other life changing way. With that in mind, I designed this T-shirt to remind my team to keep service at the forefront of every interaction.
We love and therefore we serve by sharing what we are excited about and we hope that you will become excited about it too! 💗
Not in love? No problem, neither am I. But that doesn’t mean you and I can’t participate in this season of all things love. In fact, when I began to think about it in the context of being a Christian, this month is especially suited for us. With I Corinthians 13:4-8, in mind, I came up with of list of tips that all of us can do to love and to serve.
Tip #1- Share your favorite scripture with your friends and tell them why it’s your favorite. It’s so easy to become discouraged and sending a note to a friend with your favorite scripture may just be what is needed.
Tip# 2- Write a note to a friend or family member using eye catching stationary and mail it! I know it’s a bit old fashioned, but who doesn’t appreciate receiving a handwritten note from someone special in your life?
Tip #3- Share the name of a book that you read recently that you found extra special. Perhaps do a book exchange.
Tip# 4- Cook a dish that you know your friend would enjoy and use that as an excuse to pay a visit.
Tip #5- Invite a guest to Bible study or to church. How many times, have thought I wish, Abby were here? She would have loved to hear this lesson.
Tip#6- Share your favorite Valentines Day dessert recipe with your best friend.
Tip# 7- Make a batch of hand sanitizer with your favorite essential oil and give it as a gift.
Tip# 8- Go thrifting with your friends. Set a five dollar limit and exchange gifts on Valentines Day.
Tip#9- Offer to watch your friends’ children for afternoon, so that she can take a nap or get a facial.
Tip#10- Actually meet up for coffee. Set a date and keep it!
Tip#11- Go to your favorite exercise class together.
Tip#12- Commit to checking in at least once per week.
Tip# 13- Offer to walk the dog, so your friend can go and see her grandmother in the nursing home.
Tip#14- Go out as a group to celebrate your friendship. The more the merrier!!
While the world may view love from the lens of chocolates and romantic dinners, although very nice, love is so much more! It is abundant, compassionate, durable and it serves others exactly where they are. 💗
