In the year since the physicist and I parted ways, I attempted online dating again, but didn’t really have the heart for it. In stepped Jamberry.
On June 6, 2014, having forsaken the realm of online dating and eager to afford my new-found obsession with durable nail art [what? It lasts more than a week even though I work(ed) full time on a loading dock???? Crazy, right??!?!?!!], I decided to join Jamberry as a consultant, throw a Facebook party, and see how far I could go.
9 months of fabulous jammicures, facebook parties, and team building later, I am overwhelmed by the blessing that one single step has been.
In February, I promoted to Executive consultant and quit my job on the shipping dock to pursue Jam-opportunity in the Wisconsin Dells while working as a receptionist at the top-rated motel on Trip Advisor.
I enjoy having beautiful nails, but Jamberry is about so much more than a mere manicures.
*It is so much more than a mani when over 120 precious souls are part of an amazing encouraging team of vibrant woman.
*It is so much more than a mani when it is my privilege to daily observe their growth in confidence and belief in their own capabilities.
*It is so much more than a mani when bonus day evokes tears of humble praise and stories about impossibilities being overcome.
*It is so much more than a mani when it has allowed me to give my two weeks notice because this month’s [February’s] bonus is three times more than I made in a month at my full time job.
*It is so much more than a mani when Facebook has turned from a war of words and/or jealousy cultivation into a sisterhood of support. (And yes–I love being able to say that I get PAID to spend time on Facebook ^_^)
It is more than a mani – it’s an opportunity. A leap I never would have imagined even a year ago! (A year ago, I would have been horrified at the idea of investing myself into direct sales.)
I’m #sothankful that Jamberry has been so much more than pretty nails. Don’t get me wrong–I love pretty nails. But even more so, I love all the benefit that came from them.
All praise to Him who opens unexpected doors and plans paths so insanely unpredictable that all you can do is continue stepping forth into the unknown with faith in a Father whose crazy grace turns manis into so much more!
