Finding Your Why
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” – Harriet Tubman
Over the course of the last couple of days, I’ve had a bit of an “Aha!” experience with this venture. I’ve always felt we need to figure out what we are passionate about in life and then go and build on that. Part of that process is figuring out why you do something or why you want to do it.
The decision to join South Hill Designs was, for me, an easy one. It started with the need to find a different way of making an income, something that would do what i needed for my family, and yet be something I enjoyed. I wanted something that spoke to people and inspired them. I wanted something I could feel passionate about.
This week someone said something about this being their first time in direct sales. I said yes, me too. And then it hit me. My mother was in direct sales. Many years ago, she sold Artex Liquid Embroidery Paints. She was good at it, too, working her way up to what was then identified as a district director. We were a military family and the extra income Mom brought to the family really made a difference for us. But you see, it wasn’t just Mom who was in direct sales; it was the entire family. My mother was deaf. She had well-developed speech patterns, yet was profoundly deaf. That meant she couldn’t make calls on the telephone. Imagine this 30 years ago when we had no Facebook, no email, no Twitter. That’s right, everything had to be done over the phone. My brother and I became her phone interpreters. We did that for everything she needed to do. She would sit with us, we would make the calls, repeating what she had to say and then repeating back to her what the caller said. My “Aha!” moment came this week when realizing that. I’ve done direct sales before–with my mother! I’m grateful for the things I learned, even though there were times as a teenager that i disliked making those calls. Thanks, Mom!
