In Pursuit of Beijo … Quite Literally!
My life with Beijo began while I was running my husband’s landscape photography booth at a holiday show in December 2010.¬† A woman came down our aisle carrying what I now know to be an olive Uptown – at the time, though; all I knew was that I absolutely loved her handbag!¬† However, she walked right past me and DID NOT stop at our booth.¬† Uh-oh, what was a girl to do?!¬† How was I going to find out more about that bag?¬† You guessed it …¬† I ditched the booth (cash box and all!) and literally chased her down the aisle to get her attention.¬† She told me her bag was a Beijo and directed me to www.beijobags.com where she was sure I could make a purchase.
Perfect, I thought.¬† My birthday is coming up … this is what I want to get myself for a gift.¬† I soon learned that I couldn’t order directly from the website, but patience and good fortune landed me in the home of Kathy Campbell, who ultimately became my sponsor.¬† Needless to say, I now carry an Uptown as well as several other bags, and I never cease to be amazed by the attention they receive.
In my ‘other life,’ I am a high school teacher, department chair and busy mom, but my Beijo business allows me to tap into my creative side and strive for quality client service, all of which I find very rewarding.¬† I have also enjoyed challenging myself to set lofty goals and try new things in hopes of improving my business.¬† In fact, in less than four months as a consultant, I managed to sell over $10,000 in inventory, which was a huge milestone for me!
Overall, the lesson Beijo has taught me in this short amount of time is that I am truly limited only by my own creativity … if I can dream it; I can certainly do it, so why not dream BIG?¬† My next dream?¬† To become an Executive Fashion Consultant before my current stock of business cards runs out!
