Like The Noonday

Remember how I said fear doesn’t get to drive?  Well I started a new adventure today.  I have been researching a company called Noonday Collection recently and have decided to join this fascinating fair trade company.  I know I’m not very good at sales (I’ve tried before…), but I am really excited to help support a cause that I feel strongly about.  If you would, please take a second to watch a couple videos about what Noonday Collection does, and I think you will see why I made the decision to join other like-minded women on this journey. If you’re interested in hosting a trunk show or maybe becoming an ambassador yourself, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

Granted, this is continually a work in progress.  Fearing change is natural to me, as I am …
