When I started Silly Farm I was 24 and fresh out of college. I always knew I wanted to be an entrepreneur. Growing up I would watch my parents and other family members work 90 hour weeks without hesitation. Working hard became the norm in my world. When it came time to run my own business working 100 hour work weeks seemed effortless. Anyone who knows me well, knows I live by a couple principles.
- Work hard, play hard. Life is too short to not cease opportunities that create memories and make you smile.
- Never leave the house less then 80%. No matter how tired, grouchy, overwhelmed, or stressed you may be, take the time to put yourself together. Iron your shirt, add a little mascara, or rock some new earrings. When you look good, you feel good, and ultimately you can do great things. No one can hide under a sheet the whole day, more than likely at some point you will need to interact with other humans. Whether at your child’s school, at the grocery store, or on a job. Create a routine where you make time to make yourself look and feel good, and I promise you will see a difference in your attitude and the way people treat you.
- Your best accessory is a smile. A smile is infectious, contagious, and can change someone’s day. The best part about wearing a smile is that it costs you nothing. Do your hair, add some lip gloss and smile your way out of the door. You will see how quickly your day changes when you wear a smile.
- Treat people how you want to be treated. When people call and complain about a product or concern they always say, “I’m sorry I don’t want to be a pain”. I always tell them that their input is appreciated and respected. I want to know the good, bad and ugly and I want the companies I love doing business with to value my opinion and care about me. Common respect and courtesy goes a long, long way in my book.
Back to the title of this blog. Two years ago my life changed dramatically. I had a gorgeous son and he turned my world upside down. So long were the days of working till midnight and getting up at 5 am to get back at my desk. So long were the quiet beer moments to myself. My days are hectic. Being a mom is harder than running four companies.
After the initial shock of a total Life changer. I sat down and re wrote my daily routine. I created a fabulous in-15-minutes routine that works for me and guarantees that I leave the house feeling and looking like a well oiled MILF entrepreneurial machine. You truly never know who and when opportunities will knock at your door. Being prepared to seize them gets you one step closer to your goal.
You don’t have to be a professional MuA or hair dresser to get your glam on! Find a nice moisturizer, invest in a flat iron and create a feel-good routine that doesn’t require a lot of time and can be realistically fit into your daily schedule. I made a quick video on my best friend Glori. I demonstrated how to get a fast fresh look in 15 minutes. I am not a make up artist, but I do know how to put myself together in a pinch. I hope you enjoy the video and I would LOVE LovE LovE to see your fabulous in 15 look.
