I am selling Lipstick. I never in a million years thought I would be a part of a multi-level marketing program, but here I am. What’s more, I am loving it. It’s called LipSense and it stays on all day until you take it off. I bought some, used it, and decided to sell it. I am actually making pretty good money after only three weeks. Who knew? Lipstick? I really wanted to do it but decided it wasn’t for me because it wasn’t ‘important” enough. Every job I have ever done, paid or volunteered, had to be something that contributes to society. (Except for dancer. Dancers don’t save the world but they do make it better.) Selling lipstick is not changing the world. It is not as important as helping incarcerated women have babies, working on a political campaign, or running a big fundraiser at school. It’s make up, for God’s sake and I don’t even wear it that often. Still, I wanted to do it and when I told people about it I would roll my eyes and say, “Can you believe it?” Then, the more I learned, I saw that selling lipstick actually is extremely important for some people. This business is changing women’s lives. They are creating careers, able to stay home with their children if they want, take their families on vacation, get a new car! I am fortunate enough to have those things already but I remember a time when I did not. I really wish I had something like this when I was a single mom. It also occurred to me that doing something I deemed as important did not make ME important………… huh. So, instead of being the smug dilettante I normally am I decided I, in fact, really, really wanted to sell lipstick. It’s mostly done on Social Media and I do most of my business off my Facebook Group, Pure Love Lasting Lipstick if your interested.
Now I have an excuse to be on Facebook AND….. here is the best part! I love making Live Videos! Turns out I do miss being in front of the camera a bit and I am enjoying it so much! I forgot how cute and adorable I was. The idea now is to get people in a downline to sell it too. I have no trouble talking to people about joining because I really feel it’s a great opportunity. My goal, and it is totally doable, is to make enough money to give Don more options. That is quite a bit of money but women are doing it.
Amazingly, since I am in my office working I have also begun to do what I most want to do- write. I’m at my desk and I feel good about myself so I feel like as long as I’m here I might as well write. It’s a win-win. Unless you don’t like my writing or lipstick then I can’t help you. In a nutshell. I am loving doing something I never saw coming and it is allowing me to do what I really love. Sounds like selling lipstick may be pretty important after all.
