2 years ago today...

I had no idea what Uppercase Living was.  I was and still am a stay at home mom who was up to her armpits with a 10 month old and 2 year old at home.  I had no idea what getting out of the house to share a passion that I didn't know I had, would do for my self esteem.  I didn't know whether I could succeed or not at anything outside of being a mom.  Really...I am dead serious.  I didn't know that there was a life for me outside of breastfeeding and diapering.

So on February 11th, 2008 I took a leap of faith.  I didn't have any Uppercase in my home, I hadn't applied a piece of vinyl to anything, and I had no idea if people were going to "get" what Uppercase was.

The day that my starter kit came, I signed up my first recruit.  A woman called me out of the blue and wanted to know all about Uppercase and how she could sell it...I literally had to go outside to get my starter kit off my porch to talk to this woman.  I STILL hadn't applied any vinyl...

The rest is history.  God has moved me from one place to another with this company that I have been nothing but impressed with.  Since I started I have had over 160 parties, been promoted twice, made the 35K sales circle last year, earned the FREE eastern caribbean cruise with the upgrade, earned more prizes,  been to Anaheim for convention and had the priveledge of working with an amazing team of people.  My goals have all been met, and I am pushing towards some new ones!

Above all, I love helping women create the atmosphere that they are looking for in their spaces.  Paint can change a mood in a room but the words can make it yours.  Don't ever underestimate the power of words!

As I write this I can glance up and remind myself that God has been faithful to us!  It is written on my wall.
