Think Spring! Blog Party:: Heavenly Flower

Who:: Leilani Cleveland Deveau @ Heavenly Flower

Business Established:: I have been making jewelry for over 11 years; decided to officially make it a business in 2002, although I am fairly new to the internet. After relocating and starting a family I decided setting up shop online would be easier than trying to sell at shows or give parties/face-to-face presentations.

What she does:: Custom keepsake jewelry for events or special occasions made by request. I work mainly in semi-precious gemstone beads and Swarovski crystals. I am currently developing a line of engraved metal jewelry and my site is being reworked to accommodate customizing. To keep myself creative, I have limited edition jewelry for sale on Artfire & Etsy (all accessible from my site) which are mainly comprised of leftovers from past custom work. Because of this, I price the pieces at next to no markup; there are some great deals to be had - so check it out! There is also free shipping worldwide!

How she finds balance:: By being flexible. For example, just his morning I sat down to work on a project that I am on a deadline for, and the baby is teething, so with her fussing it was not going to happen. So I spent the morning with my girls (12 months and 2 years), and after a nap the baby was feeling better so I tried again. I got more done this afternoon than I had planned to get done this morning, so now I am ahead of my deadline. At first the day looked bleak, but with a little bit of patience and flexibility, it all worked out.

Her best advice:: Beside the flexibility, put your health first! If I am tired I stop. I find that I work more efficiently anyway after a good rest. It's good to be driven and have ambition but if you are sick you are no good to anyone.

Get it now:: 20 percent off items in My Etsy & Artfire Shop, or for custom requests (contact me directly). Simply quote the code: MARKETMOMMY

What they are giving away:: Three winners!!! $30 gift certificate valid for purchases from my Limited Edition Collection. Simply browse the pieces in my Etsy & Artfire Shops, accessible through my website. I am also giving away two $10 gift certificates for the same.

Play and win:: If you were to purchase a Mother’s Day gift from Heavenly Flower, what would you choose for your mom?

Think Spring! Blog Party:: Apriori Beauty


Who:: Candy @ Apriori Beauty
Business Established:: Apriori Beauty opened in June of 2009 with a bang! Our products are based on the new science of Nutrigenomics. I wanted to help people understand how nutrients affect and protect their genes. My first blogpost was in October of 2009. On my blog, I share about health, wellness and beauty tips.
What she does:: ANTI-AGING AT THE CELLULAR LEVEL. Candace Keefe was a key factor in the creation of anti-aging products that were unparalleled in the marketplace ... until today. Apriori Beauty launched in June 2009 with her next generation of products that are guaranteed to turn anti-aging upside down, and inside out.

Everyone ages, it's a fact of life. But, everyone doesn't have to look their age! Most anti-aging solutions treat the symptoms of aging as opposed to keeping the visual signs from ever occurring. Apriori Beauty focused on Nutrigenomics — the molecular relationship between nutrition and the response of genes — to create the first ever, internal + external, preventative approach to aging. Plus, each product is power-packed with performance to reduce the visible signs of aging.

How she finds balance:: Balancing family and business is a daily challenge! I create and update my "to do" list every night, and try to accomplish as much as possible each day. My family is why I have a home based business, as I am looking ahead to college tuitions. I find that I focus on meeting the needs of my family first, then insert my business activities in the nooks and crannies of the day. A good example is that I can be making phone calls or preparing samples to go out while I am waiting to pick up my kids.
Her best advice:: My advice for other moms is to find a company with a consummable product {one that is reordered regularly} that they use and absolutely love, because it will be so natural to share it with everyone. Next, read everything about the company's method of doing business and know exactly what you need to do to build your paycheck (is there a weekly ot monthly activity or sale quota and can you meet that?) Make sure you have the personal support you need for mentoring and building your business, and that the company allows you freedom to advertise your business in creative ways!
Get it now:: Apriori Beauty's Special is the Derma Firm Illuminator $109 discount when purchased with a Full Sized or Autoship Set of Celloxylin Skin Care, themselves a 20% discount!
What they are giving away:: A Turn Back Time Capsule sample with three days Celloxylin Skin Care, one day Lifeoxylin Elixir and two days Sugar Beet Crystal/Papaya Enzyme Microscrub.
Play and win:: Name one of the four functions the Derma Firm Illuminator performs.
