The forgotten draft- Ageless

I can’t believe I forgot to post this! (Actually I can believe it). 😂 So here is my post from last august! Hope you enjoy it!- ❤️ There comes a time when you have a “wake up” moment and wonder where the time has gone. I had one of those this week. This is me, carpooling with these beautiful young moms who could actually be my daughters.  They are the same age as my daughter. 20 years ago, I would have been driving them to school and activities. You see, now, we are all senior leaders in the same company and they’d come to Dallas from Florida and Atlanta for a senior leader retreat. I love that we are all building a business together but, even more, we are enriching lives and pouring into others. It’s not just about the jewelry!

Instead of renting a car and taking a day trip to Waco after our meeting, they asked if I would take them and spend the day with them. I was honored and thrilled. Why was this a surprise to me? Because, here is my impression from personal experience- in our culture these days, it seems that when you reach a certain age (seriously, for me-it was about 40) you start to feel invisible. You start to wonder what could you possibly have to offer, are your best days behind you, are you relevant? It’s a process and a journey and I’ve come out on the other side with definite conclusions about aging and our culture and myself. I’ll share those at another time. <What a fun day we had!!! We went to Magnolia Market, the bakery, Harp Design, the Spice shops, lunch and even asked strangers where to find the fixer upper houses so we could drive by. It was so fun! We drove all over Waco -sometimes further than we planned. Thank goodness for a TURNAROUND.

That became our theme song. Seriously, we looked in the window of a fixer upper house that was unoccupied.

Kristy was tempted to peek in the door. She didn’t open it.

We did manage to get a photo on the front porch!

What beautiful, smart women! Do you know they are also foster mamas? You can find out more on Kristy’s blog called www.thishardcalling.com!ve you girls!!! Blessed by your friendship!!! You remind me what a blessing it is to have friends of all ages- old and young! Thanks for asking me to spend the day with you!

This Premier Life

I have been working on my business page for months now and still haven’t published it! You see, trying to consolidate what I do and who I am into ecommerce is quite the conflict for me! While I have been a rep with the same direct sales company for 26 years now and been able to make a full time income for the past 25 years working for myself, it is so much more than jewelry. 

When I first began with Premier, I had a 10 month old baby and a 5 year old. My whole goal was to make $500 a month to pay off a medical bill. Now- 26 years later- my nest is empty and Premier has become my career. But more than a career- it has become my life! This little jewelry business has opened doors to friendships I would never have made had it not been for the jewelry! It has given me the privilege of giving back to ministries and needs locally and around the globe – not just personally- but because Premier, as a company, gives back. Before “giving back” became a buzzword of our culture, Premier was quietly meeting needs. No big announcements, no marketing strategies- just giving back. 

Our founders, Andy and Joan Horner became personal friends! Spending time with them wasn’t about projections and strategy, it was spent talking about heart and how to make a difference. Not your usual “business meeting.” Their passion was helping up and coming leaders to get the vision- get the heart- that it wasn’t just about the jewelry! 

So today, I’m back to looking at my publish button on my business page. I have 5 unpublished versions 😂😂😂  I feel like it’s like a tatoo! It will always be there! So I’m thinking This Premier Life might be the one. It will be a fun place to shop but also to connect, share and explore financial security! Want more info?

It’s not just about the jewelry! 

My heart is so full! It’s been an amazing week with the top leadership of my company at our senior leader retreat in Dallas! I’ve been with Premier Designs now for 25 years and I am still taken back by the difference this jewelry business makes in the lives of people-The income it generates for the jewelers, the needs it meets around the world by giving back and the hearts that are touched and lives restored! It’s not just about the jewelry! It opens doors for me to meet people I would never otherwise know and provides an opportunity to meet financial needs, build friendships, pay off debt, save for the future, fund #retirement or to use it as a vehicle to giveback. I’m so thankful someone shared Premier with me- even though I wasn’t interested. Little did I know it would be a life changer  for our family. Thank you, Premier, for your vision, your hope, your caring and, oh yeah, the pretty jewelry! Want to know more or see a catalog? Check out my website. I’m looking to build my Premier family around the nation! Want to join me? What if it’s the best thing you ever did? kellyc.mypremierdesigns.com
