My Posh Story:
Why I Posh! Ok, so my “why” may be different than most but that is fine. I am a Posh consultant because of my husband Jason. He joined and is great at it. He loves interacting and helping his Posh “friends” find and use products that they will love. He doesn’t consider himself a salesman so much as someone that is sharing with his best friends. I was impressed with how successful he was but… I felt left out. He now had this new thing to take up his free time and he was interacting with our mutual friends but I was not part of their conversations. He would share with me what he was doing and how things were going but I was still watching as an outsider. As Jason became more successful he asked me for ideas on the logistical aspects of his business. I love details, plans, and strategizing so this was right up my alley. I found that I could help some of our mutual friends with those parts as well. I was also having fun using the products myself so I brought it up to Jason about being more active with him in this business. I asked for his thoughts on making Posh something “we” did instead of something “he” did. At first, he was not sure he wanted to let me be a part of it. He was worried that I might take over and he would lose the “fun” part that he was experiencing with it. We already work together in our day job and he was understandably weary of this becoming another “job”. I let him know that I did not want to take it over from him but rather, support him. (and our friends) Once that was out in the open he was fine with me being a part of it. We asked around and found that the best way for me to be part of Jason’s Posh business was to become a consultant myself. Although we are both “independent” consultants, we are working as team at this business. Jason is the voice of our company and I am the planner. We complement each other and it has made our relationship stronger over the last few months. We no longer have the “what do you want to do tonight?” question because we now have something we can do together. Our evenings no longer consist of us sitting in the living room watching TV and looking at our phones. I have found that one of the main focuses of the company is also one of the main benefits of Posh for me. Posh gives me the opportunity to remind myself that I need to take care of myself. Taking 5 to 10 minutes a day to spend using Posh is not selfish. It is smart! If I am not healthy mentally or physically, my relationships with others will suffer. Taking care of myself allows me to feel good which in turn allows me to be present with the others in my life. It is hard to engage others when I feel crappy or stressed out. My “Why” may not (and should not) be the same as anyone else’s but that is what is great abut Posh. It is what it needs to be for each person individually. I am surprised at the difference it has made in my life over the last few months and I am grateful for it. It is not purely selling “soap and lotion”, it is selling the idea of self-care and the result it will have on your life. I am excited to see what other ways Posh will be a positive influence on my life going forward.
