Busy Bee

I feel sorry that I couldn't spend as much time as I can in persona paper. I couldn't keep up with the posts of my connections here anymore. I'm juggling my time between my teaching job and as a distributor of skin care products.

When I decided to be a reseller of natural skin care products a month ago, I didn't expect that it would consume most of my time entertaining questions from people not only from the Philippines but from Singapore, Thailand, and the United States. In just a week, my sales tripled and it's increasing every week.

My usual 6-7 hours of sleep was cut down to 4-5 hours. My free time which I used to do my hobbies before was now turned into updating my online shop's page, entertaining customers, and preparing orders for delivery. There's not a single day that I don't get messages. And that includes my weekends.

I am grateful for this, but my family is worried about my health. I know I should be able to organise and manage my time well and I should set aside some for myself just to relax and not think about pleasing my customers' needs.

This new venture has kept me excited and I feel blessed. Life has been good to me and now I am planning to share the blessings. This December, I shall donate 5% of my profit. I have not decided to which organization I'm going to give it, but I'm certain I will set aside 5% of my profit the whole month of December. It may not be much, but it's a starting point. I might make it a permanent thing.

Wow! Looks like you are enjoying life to the hilt. May be with a bit of organisation you will find time for everything else too. I like the idea of your wanting to donate. I do it too. emoticon :cool:

Glad to hear you are doing so well in selling the skin care products. That must be great for your moral. Good of you to donate the 5%. Perhaps when you get more organized you will have more time to dabble on here. Good luck to you in your ventures.

Hi, yes indeed. It makes me feel good that I have chosen the right business venture. I will try my best to be on here when I get my schedule organised. Thanks.

Congrats on doing so well with the new job. I'm sure you'll learn how to manage everything soon.

It sounds you have done good business with that cosmetic product. It's really great. How do you do the marketing strategies?

Congratulations on the successful business endeavor! I'll gladly accept the 5% from your profits. Should I email you my bank details or would my PayPal account do?

I don't know how you do it. I can't keep up with everything I do, either.

I'm worried, too, now that you are sleeping less. I hop ethat you are able to set aside the extra money so that you can afford to take some time off soon!

I am also having less time here because I am working.
I am glad to meet generous people like you.

Hi there! Such a late response from me and I apologise for that. Thanks so much and indeed I have learned how to manage my time with the new business. I am good at making schedules and plans now.

frenchtoast78 wrote on January 26, 2015, 11:45 PM

Yeah health is so important or we would lose everything. Thanks and sorry for the late response.

Hi there! Sorry for the late response. I post positive feedbacks of these skin care products. Most of the feedbacks are positive. I haven't received any negative feedbacks yet. People who see real results from real people are encourage to try my products.

lol I didn't know that you are now a charitable institution.

frenchtoast78 wrote on January 26, 2015, 11:48 PM

When I'm very enthusiastic with what I do, I tend to have this adrenalin rush which makes me do so many things at the same time lol!

frenchtoast78 wrote on January 26, 2015, 11:48 PM

Money is not an issue in taking the time off. The greatest issue is the time itself. We have enough money to travel where we want to, we just don't have the time.

frenchtoast78 wrote on January 26, 2015, 11:49 PM

Thank you. I have been truly blessed and it's still working well until now. It's not much money but I am earning and I am enjoying at the same time. :)

frenchtoast78 wrote on January 26, 2015, 11:50 PM

Probably but for months now, it's earning and increasing so well. It's just not makeup. It's a skin care product which is a necessity and the fact that it's natural and organic, it has actually boosted like i never expected.

Hi there! Sorry for the late response. I just believe that when you are blessed you have to share it, otherwise, it can be taken away from you.
