There have been some major changes with South Hill Designs in the last two weeks, and I believe I have wrapped my head around it now so that I can share it with all of you. It’s been a roller coaster ride the past two weeks, so stay with me! Many of you messaged me in the last two weeks to check on my as you saw things on social media saying the company was closing. Then just as fast as we thought that was the case, we learned we were being invited under the wing of Youngevity, under the Mialisia brand. So let me share my thoughts.
The Pain, and Pleasure, of Change
Naturally, when you’re hit with a big change like this, there are so many emotions. The first is often “I don’t want my world to change.” I find those are usually the time when I also imagine God is sitting up there laughing at my naivete. Then it’s quickly to, “okay, so it’s changing, what does that mean?” And almost simultaneously, it’s “oh boy, this is not going to be good.” And through a few more steps, to where I am today. Which is WOW! What an amazing opportunity we have. In the middle of that, I must say the thing that most helped me is that I have a life verse I claim daily. Those who know me well are aware that Jeremiah 29:11 is my life verse. In essence, it says God promises that He has a plan for my life, one that will prosper and not harm me. You cannot imagine how many times I recited that verse the last two weeks. I simply hunkered down and learned as much as I could. A bonus for me is that I had been affiliated with Mialisia in the past so I felt like I knew some of those folks. I reached out to friends who are there, chatted with them, and gathered as much information as possible. Then I started chatting with my team. I have an awesome team of people and I have a wonderful mentor in my national director. Together, we are figuring it out and making it work!
What I Now Know
As I began to explore some of the things, I came to one big realization. This company has so many products! And many of them, I already use! I already use essential oils and spa products, I drink coffee, I love chocolate, I love Mialisia jewelry as well as South Hill products. Oh, then I saw they have pet products. My fur baby, Turbo, really needs help with his arthritis and I’ve been looking for something for that! There’s also mineral make up! While I have always been fascinated with that, I haven’t really found one that works for me, yet, I see rave reviews from others so I just have to give that a try. Oh, and who loves to do scrap booking?! To me, that’s something I want to learn because it’s another w3ay to tell the stories of our lives!
I started thinking about my family and friends. So many of them also use many of these products. This might be awesome for them, because there’s even a plan where they can buy at wholesale prices! Okay, it’s looking up!
What I know is I’m excited that there are so many things to share. While I don’t believe a woman can ever have too much jewelry, I do have some customers who have said they just don’t have any more room for more. So, they might like to try something different! I can do that!
The other thing I know is that I know the folks involved here. Our owners at South Hill Designs have always had our well being in their hearts and minds. I applaud them for finding a way to keep us in business and provide new opportunities for everyone. They have always given so much of themselves and are amazing, I’m excited to be able to continue this journey with them. As I’ve sat in on calls the past two weeks, I hear the heart of the folks at Youngevity. For me, that matters and it matters a lot. When we select a business, it needs to align with our own feelings and speak to our heart. This does, for me. Transition can be hard. And yes, there will be bumps. But you know what? We got this! And I’m confident that in the end it will be an even better opportunity than any of us imagined!
New Beginnings and Opportunity
This change brings about so much increased opportunity. I think of folks who have previously wanted to do a business, but just couldn’t make it happen. I can help there! You can even get started on my team for only $25! Imagine doing that and starting to build a business that matters for your family. Or maybe you simply want to shop and try some things–you can do that in a couple of ways! You can do that same $25, shop wholesale, and even get bonuses when you refer others. Don’t want to do that? You can get a free customer account and still shop at wholesale prices (although I’m pretty sure you are going to love things so much you’ll want to share them, so really think about that one!) This allows me to help more people start their own business and mentor them to really build something that matters for their family. For that, I am feeling truly blessed!
I love that we are also available in more countries now! I look forward to having a great team in Australia one of these days very soon! Stay tuned right here in the coming days as I will be sharing some of the new products and things we have to offer!
So, I invite you to check out my new website! Browse through some of the things, ask questions, and if you are so inclined, join me on this journey! It’s going to be a fantastic one!
