YOU’RE NOT THE BOSS OF ME: THE EXCITING AND SCARY WORLD OF BECOMING AN ENTREPRENEUR
One day in my late 30’s I basically said those words to the crazy female attorney I was working for and started my journey as an entrepreneur. Was I mad? Yes! Was I terrified? Yes! Was I relieved and excited? YES! I had worked in an accounting office as a bookkeeper and found out I was good at it, so I put the word out to everyone I knew that I was starting my own bookkeeping business and to please keep me in mind if they needed my services or knew anyone who did. Slowly, I built my business by word of mouth and 20 years later I am still my own boss with a thriving business.
Being the person in charge is so much more than I expected. More work, more responsibility, more fun, more flexibility, more choices every day. I have improved my skills, developed self discipline, practiced patience, and learned to smile when what I really wanted to do was scream. The downside to being a company of one is that if you don’t work, you don’t get paid. So there are no paid vacations or sick days, and no 401K.
A couple of years ago I was introduced to network marketing and after doing some research realized that this is an extremely easy way to start your own business. It can be worked full time or part time and very quickly become a BIG business - after all I had already built one business by networking. It’s all about residual income and working in the entertainment industry I understand the power of residual income - you do the work once, and get paid on it repeatedly. The network marketing business model takes that a step further in that you help other people build their own business and you get paid on their efforts. In my book, that is a Win/Win – you do well by helping others do well!!
I am working towards making my Plan B business my Plan A so that I can have the freedom and finances to thoroughly enjoy being my own boss. I would love to help you do the same thing. If you are interested take a look at my website https://chudson.myrandf.biz/ and then let’s chat!
THE BEST WRINKLE IS ONE YOU NEVER GET
Let’s face it we’re all going to get a wrinkle or two (or twenty) during our lifetime. It’s inevitable because we spend time in the sun, use our face to express ourselves, and experience stress. It’s unrealistic to expect to keep the soft, supple skin we had as kids, but there are things we can do to minimize the effects of aging. Studies show that how we age is 20% hereditary and 80% lifestyle choices.
After the age of 18, our collagen production decreases 1% a year which impacts the skin’s thickness and elasticity. Women who have reached menopause lose as much as 30% of their remaining collagen in the first five years and skin elasticity declines by .55% per year. I have mentioned these statistics to emphasize that it is never too early to begin a good skin care routine. Using products that replenish moisture and contain peptides to re-build the collagen in our skin and tools to prep the skin for greater penetration can slow down or reverse the signs of aging. Rodan + Fields Redefine product line includes everything you need in your anti-aging arsenal. See the products here .
There is no way to avoid the sun but we can minimize the damage it does to our skin. Wearing sunglasses, a wide brimmed hat and a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 are the easiest places to start. I am a red head with fair skin, who has had my share of sunburns and the skin damage to show for it. Rodan + Fields Reverse Regimen contains a combination of Retinol and Vitamin C that has transformed my skin from brown spots and dullness to a radiant, even skin tone. See the products here .
Let’s not forget the little things you can do to keep those wrinkles at bay. Sleeping on your back to avoid permanent “sleep lines” and getting at least 7 hours of sleep a night. Drinking plenty of water and eating fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, artichokes and walnuts which are rich in antioxidants to fortify your skin. Exercising on a regular basis to keep your body strong and your skin supple.
Start the New Year off with good skin habits and Love the Skin You’re In!!
THE SEASON OF SHARING
I saw this great quote by Lailah Gifty Akita that says "The more you share, the more you receive to share.” I can think of no other time of the year that is more focused on sharing than the Christmas holiday. There are many ways of sharing, some that we aren't even aware of.
Smiles are contagious and sharing one with the check out clerk at the mall or the person who holds the door for you at Sarbucks is the easiest way to keep in the holiday spirit. Not only will it make you feel happy, it could be the moment that brightens someone elses stressful day.
My neighborhood is one of the most unique places I have ever lived. It has a true spirit of community and sharing is a big part of its appeal. From a referral for a great plumber or handyman, to a cup of coffee for your neighbor across the street whose power is out but yours is not, we can always count on someone in the community to share what they have. I am looking forward to being serenaded again this year with Christmas carols by a group of locals who share their love of music and always leave me with a smile (see, we're back to the easy one!)
Christmas is the number one time of the year for sharing gifts. As I have gotten older receiving gifts has become less important than giving them. I get so much joy from finding the perfect gift for each friend and family member. Being able to share something that is just for them is what makes me smile (there it is again!).
Sharing time with friends and family is the best part of the holiday season. From holiday parties, to having lunch with a friend to exchange gifts, to the entire family around the table for Christmas dinner, there is nothing better to renew the spirit than time spent with those you care about.
Share the joy of Christmas and receive joy in return! Ho Ho Ho, y'all!!
HOW TO COMBAT DRY SKIN DURING NASHVILLE’S WINTER MONTHS
As the winter days get colder, we all turn up the thermostat to stay cozy and warm. While we love being warm, our skin can suffer from the added dryness caused by the heated air. Not to worry, there are several things you can do to alleviate dry, flaky skin.
Humidify the Air Humidity is much lower in the winter months and going from the cold, dry air outside, to the heated, dry air inside can wreak havoc with your skin. According to the Mayo Clinic, the ideal humidity level in your home is between 30 and 50 percent. Add moisture to the air, especially in your bedroom, with a humidifier. When purchasing a humidifier, consider buying one with a hygrometer (humidistat) that maintains humidity within the optimal level.
Moisturize your Skin Help your skin stay hydrated by using a moisturizer that helps replenish the skin’s natural moisture. Rodan + Fields Soothe Moisture Replenishing Cream is a rich, dewy formula which replenishes skin’s natural moisturizing factors as it soothes, hydrates and nourishes. Nearly all of the formula (over 98%) is an exclusive blend of skin beneficial moisturizers, humectants, skin conditioners and protectants that offer effective, long-lasting moisturization. Natural oils and fatty acids provide beneficial omega 3, 6 and 9 while chamomile calms the skin.
Exfoliate your Skin Skin is our largest organ and one of the few that regenerates its self. In your 20’s your skin cells renew themselves about every 20 days. By the time you reach 45 that turnover is happening about every 40 days. In the dry winter months that accumulation of dead cells can leave your skin flaky and dull. Regular exfoliation will remove that layer of dead cells to uncover the new healthy skin. It will also allow your moisturizer to penetrate deeper and faster to keep your skin dewy. An excellent tool that will remove five million dead skin cells in just 5 minutes is Rodan + Fields Redefine Macro Exfoliator . Designed to be used once a week with no down time, it is like having a Medi-Spa in your bathroom.
Stay Hydrated Drinking plenty of water is always a good idea to stay healthy and it’s no different during the winter months. In addition to helping your skin retain moisture, proper hydration will help ward off colds and flu. You don’t have to carry a bottle of water with you everywhere, instead eat fruits and vegetables high in water content such as oranges, pineapple, broccoli and carrots. A cup of hot tea or decaf coffee will warm you up and get in that extra water, too.
So, Nashville bundle up, stay warm and take care of your skin over the winter months. Spring will be here before you know it!
HOW TO LOOK YOUR BEST DURING THE HOLIDAYS IN NASHVILLE
Holidays are a time of fun, family and all things festive! However, you can easily over expose your body to sugar and alcohol with all of the parties and treats around. Here are five things that will help you look and feel your best:
Getting a good solid 7-8 hours of sleep every night will keep your system in a consistent cycle. Your body, especially your skin, naturally regenerates while you sleep. Giving your body the time to rejuvenate, replenish and regenerate is key to looking and feeling great!
To enhance the body’s natural regeneration process, these products are designed to be used while you sleep:
1. Redefine Acute Care: This needle-free wrinkle filler is a great, overnight product that will show you amazing results! This product will be available January, 2015 so get your skin prepped for maximum results by starting the Redefine Regimen now. See the product here
2. Redefine Night Renewing Serum and AMP MD Roller: The AMP MD system utilized micro-exfoliation technology for visibly advanced skin firming benefits and reduces the appearance of aging with a potent blend of peptides and retinol. See the product here
Drinking enough water every day is vital to your skin’s appearance and how your body feels. Keep your cells hydrated to feel and look great with the correct water consumption. Also, limit the things that can promote dehydration, like alcohol and sugar. We know these are around during the holidays, so put your self-discipline hat on tight. Grab a glass of water and moisturize your skin from the inside out.
3) SHOP LOCAL
Shopping local not only helps you make new friends, it keeps you in touch with the local style while nourishing the local economy. Check out a few of our favorite stores:
1. Old Made Good in East Nashville
2. Creative Village Artists Studio in Old Hickory
3. Stacey Rhodes Boutique in Brentwood
4. Hip Zipper in East Nashville
Stay social and surround yourself with your community of friends and family. Having fun, laughing and connecting is so important to self worth and happiness. Try starting a new tradition this year like going to see the holiday lights – gather a group of friends and drive around your neighborhood or a nearby town and drink in the glowing festivity!
Despite the fact that it can be cold around the holiday, bundle up and hit some of Nashville’s top hiking trails and dog parks with your favorite canine pal:
1. Radnor Lake
2. Beaman Park
3. Percy Warner
4. Two Rivers Dog Park
