I didn’t join Pink Zebra just to have a “job”. I joined because I was at the lowest point in my life. The grief of losing my mother was tearing me apart. Starting my business was a choice to put my pain and passion into something productive instead of drowning my sorrow in a bag of potato chips.. Anyone else with me? You may not have lost a loved one recently but I’m sure most of you have experienced the unwillingness to get up and keep going. Maybe it was a bad divorce, you were laid off from a job, or maybe your self esteem has you reaching for those unhealthy comforts in your life that lead to more self loathing and tears. It’s a cycle!! Break it!
What if there was a new beginning that could change you. Getting a fancy starter kit, business cards, and a new title won’t change you. What you do with them will.
Pink Zebra has changed my life. I was so excited to be handing out samples and sharing products with people. Finally something else to talk about than just my grief. When others became just as excited about my products as I was, I was thrilled! When people started joining my team and focusing on the same goal as me, it was life changing.
Since day one, I have kept that fire and passion alive. God has blessed me beyond my wildest dreams with an amazing customer base, a team of over 140, and the most amazing company I have ever been a part of. When the depression and self loathing tries to creep in, God reminds me He has placed me in a position of Leadership. One I never knew I wanted or would be good at! I can’t revert back to that lost little girl who’s mom died. I have too many counting on me. My family and my team. That is my motivation. I want to change lives just like mine was changed. God took a broken heap of ashes and replaced them with beauty. God has a way of taking something you never dreamed of doing and making His glory shine through.
Is there something in your life that needs changing? Are you being held back by your own doubts and fears. What if you took that energy and focused it on something productive. Helping out at a local food bank, donating to a charity, or even starting your own business to help others in your situation. Whatever you’re going through, you are not alone. That pain will keep you going until it’s replaced with joy.
