Thinking Out Loud – Why Keep?
It’s Thinking out Loud Thursday with Penny’s Passion and Running with Spoons. Today I’m thinking about why I’m doing KEEP Collective and I wanted to share a little more about it. I promise I’m not turning the blog into a giant sales pitch and this will probably the last time I mention it (unless I get some pretty new goodies once in awhile that I want to share!) A few folks mentioned they didn’t know what it was when I talked about it in my goals and Currently posts this week, so I also thought this would be a chance to explain that as well!
KEEP Collective is jewelry and it’s not just any jewelry – it’s jewelry that you personalize and make your own. You take a “keeper” which could be a necklace or a bracelet and you add unique charms that help you tell your story. You can mix and match and add on and make it uniquely you. The possibilities are endless.
I was introduced to KEEP last summer when a friend of mine from high school started selling it and I hosted a party with her. I was hooked from the start. After I hosted a second party with her this winter, she asked if I’d ever considered becoming a stylist. I really hadn’t and wasn’t necessarily looking into getting into any kind of sales. While I do support my friends in MLM businesses and don’t have the hatred for them that plenty of folks do (and I get it to an extent, I don’t want weight loss shakes either, I understand) I wasn’t thinking it would ever be for me. But I thought about it after she asked me, I looked at the information and it started sounding like something I wanted to do. I asked her some questions, read up some more and even prayed on it a little and decided that yes, I want to do this. Here are some reasons.
(1) I spend the majority of my time with two boys. And I love my husband and son, but it’s a testosterone driven household. This will give me a chance to do something a little more girly and fun.
(2) I am a storyteller by nature. This is why I blog. To share my story. I want to help others tell their stories in unique ways and this jewelry does exactly that.
(3) Making a little extra money isn’t a bad thing, I can put it away for vacations or other fun things and use our day to day salary for the important stuff.
(4) Even if nothing more comes of it than just discounts on my own products well, it’s discounts on my own products! I’m a girl who loves a deal!
Those are my main reasons. I’m excited to see where this goes. As I said, I won’t likely mention it much here again, I don’t want to turn you away if this isn’t your thing, I completely understand, but I wanted to at least put it out there that I’m doing it and why I chose to.
