"Define success on your own terms, acheive it by your own rules, and build a life you're proud to live." - Anne Sweeney

Building a home-based business is not just about making money - it's much bigger than that. Working my business daily brings me closer to some very important goals in my life. Being more available for my daughters. Taking better care of my husband. Having more time to dedicate to causes that are important to me. There are but a few years left to spend with my youngest, who will soon only have 2 years left of high school. I have worked full time since they were small - and since my mom's passing - I have had to let the "little things" go in order to keep pace with only those really important things. THAT is my new WHY ... WHY it is so vital for me to begin a new stage in my life and redirect my attention to what matters most.
It is certainly always easier to reach goals with cheerleaders in the background. I spent the past weekend in Orlando, FL at the very first annual SOAR convention for Chloe + Isabel. 2 red-eye flights, EST messing with my sleep schedule and very long hours in training sessions couldn't dull the excitement of being surrounded by strong and loving friends. Friends I may have met once, but have been Facebook pals with for the past 20 months. My "candisisters" as we call each other are what gives me the strength to surge past many of the goals I set for myself.
As I touched back down in Seattle on Monday morning, I felt an energy I hadn't felt in years. (Tinged with a cold that's plagued me for 3 days.) My Chloe + Isabel is the vehicle that will carry me towards a more fulfilling life with my girls and my supportive husband. And my new friends (who I wish were my neighbors so I could see them every day) have my back. They understand what drives me and will keep me pushing forward until my dreams have been realized. Today, I am SOARing.

Why Chloe + Isabel?

I recently met a woman at a Ladies Night I attended. I was "popping up" and she came to look at my display. Immediately she went into her sales pitch for her company - why I wanted to use her products - why they were the best - how much money I could earn by becoming a rep for them - when could I come see the product? Holy cow! I felt a bit like I'd been run over by a bus within the last 5 minutes!
One point Chantel Waterbury, CEO of Chloe + Isabel helped me understand about her vision for our company is her desire to control it's growth and the most important aspect to her is the education of each one of her merchandisers. We don't recruit. Our company is not set up that way. We are individual merchandisers who, if we choose, can be a part of a team to help lift each other up and gain confidence in business.
Thus, you will never find me recruiting you or your friends. Pop Ups are a time for friendship, styling and giving yourself a little something to make you happy.
So why not schedule a little shopping time with me? It's fun!

June Pop Up incentive

I have a few dates available for June pop ups. I am available during the week and a few weekends so hit me up for a quick Pop up with your friends!
All we need is a date, 2 hours, and some friends who love to shop. I'll do the rest.

Amalfi Coast Collection

This collection is so much more than some pretty summer jewelry. Chantel and her design team has developed Chloe + Isabel into a Lifestyle brand that helps tell the story of our jewelry collection.
Earlier this spring, Chloe + Isabel took you on a tour of Rome with our From Rome with Love catalog. We continue our trip to Italy by moving down South to the Amalfi Coast, to the vibrant cliffside village of Positano, to the rocky isle of Capri, the smell of the lemon groves and the beautiful blue seas of the Mediterranean.
You just can't get the full appreciation of the jewelry designed to make you feel like you've traveled to the warm Italian coast unless you see it in person. Schedule a time to take a look at my latest collection of pieces!
