Side Gig…

During my time in Colorado, I met some amazing people. One of those people happened to be this enthusiastic young woman, Amanda. I happened to meet her while working at an ED as an agency nurse. Amanda approached me one day talking about this amazing skin care company she was working on. She explained to me all the wonderful benefits the company offered, how amazing the products were, and how this was an awesome opportunity. As the usual skeptic that I am, I brushed her off and continued on with my life.

A few months later, I order some products. I started with the REDEFINE to combat the sign of aging, 50 was soon approaching. Well, I hate to say it, but she was right, the products are amazing, and I saw the opportunity. This company was new to Canada and it could be an excellent source of residual income. I signed up as a consultant and began my journey. I supposed this opportunity also allowed for a small distraction from the stress and chaos of my life at the time.

What we are talking about here is Rodan + Fields. These two doctors, dermatologists, were the founders of Proactiv and now have moved on to creating skin care products, focused on the four main areas of concern for adult skin. As a consultant, I have had the ease and privilege to try and use almost all of the products and I love all of them and the benefits they offer!! #1 Skincare Brand in North America in 2018.jpg

The reason I tell you this, is because I believe it to be important to do a few things…

1. Take care of yourself including your skin (advise from a nurse). Your skin is your largest organ and needs a little TLC.

2. If there are opportunities to make some cash on a side gig, or even making it your only gig, why not! When you find a reputable company, that offers products that work, that pays good commissions, and gives awesome rewards, TAKE IT!

3. When you look good, you feel good!

So, although this space is not for selling products, if interested, I’ll provide a link to my webpage where you can find products that suit your skin type. I am available for consultation and any questions you might have.

Colorado Trail

While living in Colorado, we had an amazing opportunity to challenge ourselves with the hike of a lifetime…

Not my idea, not my plan, not my dream, but WOW what an amazing opportunity to hike almost 60 miles over 5 days with my wonderful sweet and his friend Tyler! Talk about climbing a mountain to learn something about yourself! There are many lessons to learn on this type of trip and when you are sitting on the ground crying out to the universe “I’m not having any fun!”, you learn that it’s only up from there…literally!

A couple of tips that I learned the hard way…

  1. Don’t over pack…See that backpack I’m carrying in the video? It’s at least 45 lbs, way over what someone my size should carry! Next time I pack smarter & lighter!
  2. Food! Eat it! We packed a lot of food and hardly ate, well that’s probably due to altitude sickness BUT, we needed to be more reasonable about what food to bring and how much we eat!
  3. Make it your own experience…We may have been traveling with each other, but making the journey as your own personal growth experience is very valuable!
  4. Take more pictures & videos! If you’re going to carry that darn camera, use it!!
  5. Listen to your body! Just because you live at 5,000 feet doesn’t mean you won’t feel the altitude at 11,500 feet! Rest, fluids, oh and rest!
  6. FEET! Man, those feet are the only thing between you and the earth, take care of them, get good footwear, and don’t wait till the last minute to break in your shoes!
  7. Don’t pick the hardest sections to start your journey! We started at Molas Pass and headed south…the highest & toughest sections of the trails BUT the most beautiful!

Gosh, are we ready to go again guy?

What’s your biggest adventure? I’d love to hear your story, post in the comments!
