Is This Really My Life?!

I recently had the opportunity to spend 4 days in San Francisco, CA with about 2,500 of my favorite people :-)  It was a whirlwind long weekend of meeting incredible people, connecting with people I hadn't seen in a while, and learning so much that I thought my head might just explode. A few photo highlights:

I met our Doctors -- smart, beautiful, fun, generous.

I met our founding consultant -- not yet 30 years old, retired kindergarten teacher, in the biz for 2 1/2 years, and our first millionaire!

I met our CEO -- an icon in this industry

And I got a glimpse of my future when the President of the Direct Sales Association (sort of like the BBB for the standard brick and mortar business) spoke as a keynote speaker for the first time ever.  He stood on stage, placed his hands on his hips, slowly shook his head back and forth, and looked at us with an incredulous look on his face.

"You just have NO.  IDEA.  what you all have here, do you?  You are in precisely the right place, at the right time, in the right market, and with the right company.  I've never seen anything like's the perfect storm!"

His vision of where we'll be in the next few years....where I'LL be in the next few years....absolutely took my breath away.

And oh man, did we have FUN!  As I was walking down the sidewalk on the way to the convention center from our hotel for the 15th (or so) time, I turned to my friend and said, "Seriously! Pinch me!  HOW is this my life?!"  We laughed as we flip-flopped our way down the sidewalk with our heels tucked in our purses.

Life is good.  It feels so wonderful to have a dream in my heart...

OK, I keep reading your stuff, watching you get more and more excited, and I'm ready to hear more, as long as it's not a hard sell (please!). With real numbers, though? Both $ invested, money earned, and time invested per week, day whatever unit you track. And is Minnesota a good market? Or are there tons of reps here and I just haven't heard about it yet?


Thank you!

I am happy for you, but sad for us. You're not the same Daiquiri that I used to read.

May God bless you and your family.

Anonymous - You are correct. I am not the same Daiquiri I was a year ago.

The old Daiquiri who felt like she was stuck in a holding pattern and was feeling lost as to what she would do with herself once her carpal tunnel kept her from the computer work associated with photography.....the old Daiquiri who saw a day coming when her kids would be in school and she'd be home alone with nothing to challenge her....the old Daiquiri who finally settled into a peaceful place of contentment which was centered around making my house a home and loving my family (but was also a tiny bit bored, and who cried quite a bit).... Yes, she is gone.

My heart for the Lord is the same.
My heart for my family is the same.
My heart for my brothers and sisters in the Lord is the same.

I'm saddened that my finding work that fulfills me and excites me feels like a loss to you. And frankly, your "I'm happy for you" feels hollow and false when it's followed by "but".
