Why I Became a lia sophia Advisor

This is my first post in a new blog I'm very excited to call Jennie's lia sophia Connection. I'm now officially an Advisor with lia sophia fashion jewelry! This is something that I never imagined would happen, let alone that I'd be so ecstatic about. Here's how we came to this place.

I learned about lia sophia many Christmases ago when I was given my very first piece of lia sophia jewelry - a gorgeous, playful, colorful, now-retired necklace called "Kaleidoscope." I still wear this necklace all the time (and get compliments on it), rocking its Jelly Belly color scheme and matching it with all my melon and teal colored outfits. I remember when I was given the necklace being told it had a Lifetime Guarantee, which I thought was pretty special.

Throughout the years, I was invited to two lia sophia parties. I always loved the styles but felt like I didn't have the cash to buy anything and avoided making any purchases. Yet as the burden of being a full-time working mom outside the home began to weigh on me and the idea of going into direct sales and working for myself began to grow on me, I felt the company I should explore was lia sophia. I kept having those strange spiritual whisperings that would occur to me at the most random times, encouraging me to investigate what it takes to go into business as a lia sophia advisor.

And so, I re-connected with a hostess from one of the parties I'd attended about two years ago, while pregnant with my now 18-month-old daughter. I'd listened to the presentation she'd made. She must have planted a slow-growing seed. (And, as a side note, this is why I'll never be bummed if someone decides not to make a purchase at one of my parties - you never know what will come of the experience later!) This woman, now a Division Leader when she was only starting out at the party I attended, eagerly made plans to meet with me and share her enthusiasm for this company that had saved her family from financial crisis. I took her words and her information and pondered it as I continued to research other companies.

In the end, all roads led back to lia. I signed on with a team that already feels like family, and now I'm beginning an adventure that I feel confident will change my life. I'm putting to use my skills in marketing and PR, being given the opportunity to be paid in order to have fun, and finally earning for FREE all the amazing jewelry I'd only wished I could afford at the parties I attended. Kaleidoscope will no longer be lonely (or at least I won't need to wear a snake to keep it company!).

I plan to use this blog to document everything I learn as I go about fashion and business, provide tips for hostesses to throw unforgettable lia sophia parties, and offer chances to win some prizes. I hope you'll join me for the ride!
