How To Become a Farmasi Makeup Consultant (Bloggers & Influencers)

If it seems like everywhere you look lately you see a Farmasi Beauty Influencer touting the awesomeness of the makeup brand, you’re not alone. You might also be wondering how to become a Farmasi Makeup Consultant yourself. If so, great! In this post we’re going to talk about all things Farmasi.

Here’s a quick overview of what we’ll cover:

    • What is Farmasi?
    • How to Make Money as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant
    • Is Farmasi an Affiliate Program or an MLM?
    • Farmasi Perks & Benefits
    • Why I Joined Farmasi (and who I am!)
    • What is in the Farmasi Starter Kit?
    • What are Farmasi Product Packs?
    • How to Sign Up as a Farmasi Beauty Influencer

Here’s my video overview of Farmasi, then scroll down to read the blog post for all the nitty-gritty details:

What is Farmasi?

Farmasi is a makeup, beauty and personal care brand that quite literally exploded into the U.S. market earlier this year (scroll down to the Google Trends graphs below to see what I mean). The company is already established in over 100 countries around the world, but just launched in the U.S. and is taking the beauty industry by storm with its luxury makeup sold at bargain prices.

If you’re and influencer on Instagram or YouTube AND/OR a beauty or style blogger looking for an affiliate program that pays high commissions, then you need to take a serious look at Farmasi. If you’re NOT an influencer, Farmasi can still be an awesome opportunity for you to make money from home. We’ll go into all of that below!

Fun Fact: “Farmasi Makeup Consultant” is the same thing as Farmasi Beauty Influencer, Farmasi Seller, Farmasi Distributor, etc. It’s like 🍅to-MAY-to, 🍅to-MAH-to.

I’m currently taking a business course related to blogging and direct sales and in it learned that there are 4 different stages that most direct sales companies go through: Formulation, Concentration, Momentum and Stabilization. The best time to sign up with a company is when it’s in Momentum.

Farmasi is in Momentum… BIG TIME.

For context, here are a few examples of direct sales companies that have previously hit Momentum and are now in Stabilization:

MARY KAY

This company seems like its been around forever, and you can see that their Momentum peaked back in 2004.

marykay market trend

MONAT

Monat is a hair care company that just launched a few years ago, had a massive Momentum spike, and seems to have entered the Stabilization phase in early 2018.

monat market trend

ARBONNE

Arbonne is one of my personal faves product-wise. You can see Momentum somewhere around 2006, and then Stabilization going forward.

Farmasi is a Makeup Brand in Momentum

Now by contrast from the graphs above, take a look at the Google Trends results for Farmasi:

Crazy, right?! When I first saw the growth trend on this company, MY.MIND.WAS.BLOWN 🤯.

I’m not a huge makeup girl, but I AM a blogger and entrepreneur so when I saw this opportunity (AND found an incredibly strong upline/training mentorship for support), I knew I had to take it seriously and sign up as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant myself.

If you’re ready now, you can start your application to become a Farmasi Influencer right here.

Quick caveat: I am NOT saying that companies in Stabilization are not good opportunities… they totally can be, especially if you have a great upline! But what I AM saying, is that if you sign up with a direct sales company near the beginning of their Momentum phase, you stand to make A LOT of money. As my fellow mom blogger, McKinzie Bean of Moms Make Cents, says, “Momentum is where the millionaires are made!”

Ok, so it’s clear that Farmasi is in a serious growth phase, but what does that mean for YOU as a blogger, social media influencer, or mama looking for extra income? What are the perks and benefits? How can you actually succeed as a Farmasi Beauty Influencer? And how much money can you actually make?

How To Make Money as a Farmasi Beauty Influencer

how to make money farmasi beauty influencer

Since Farmasi takes a modern approach to Direct Sales, it works much more like an affiliate program that pays super high commissions (and that also has additional perks). Here are the basic two ways to make money as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant:

Method #1: Use Farmasi as an Affiliate Program to Make 50% Commissions

If you’re a blogger or social media influencer, you’re probably already familiar with affiliate marketing. If not, it’s simple! Basically, affiliate marketing is where you share about products you love and earn a commission of any sales received through your unique link or referral code.

When you sign up as a Farmasi Consultant you get a personalized link that you can share in emails, text messages, Facebook posts, blog posts, Pinterest, Instagram, YouTube, etc. If anyone makes a purchase through your link, you receive a whopping 50% commission on the sale! (For example, if someone purchases a Lipstick for $12, you automatically earn $6). 

Method #2: Leverage Farmasi as an MLM to Grow Passive Income (Affiliate Marketing on Steroids)

If you’re interested in scaling your income up even more, you can leverage Farmasi as an MLM (Multi Level Marketing). This is where you share the income opportunity with others and get them to sign up as a Beauty Influencer with you. When you do this, you not only earn a commission on your own personal sales, but also earn a smaller commission on all the sales of the Farmasi Consultants that signed up on your “team”.

This is similar to a “tiered affiliate program”, like Ultimate Bundles or ClickFunnels (they pay you additional commissions for any sales that come through affiliates you referred).

And honestly you guys, this is where the income potential really starts to skyrocket. You can also earn additional cash bonuses, vacations, cars and more.

So, Is Farmasi an Affiliate Program or an MLM?

The short answer is: It depends how you use it.

Part of the beauty of the Farmasi makeup brand opportunity is that you can leverage it however you want!

Want to sign up as a Beauty Influencer just to get luxury makeup at 50% off or earn a bit of easy side-hustle cash? Go for it, smart lady.

Want to sign up and use Farmasi strategically as an affiliate program on your blog to earn 50% commission? Who wouldn’t?! 50% is a crazy high commission rate for any affiliate program.

Want to become a Farmasi Consultant to get the discount, earn commissions AND leverage your time by building a team of Farmasi Beauty Influencers to scale your passive income? Girrrl, go get it! (This last option is how you leverage the Farmasi MLM business model)

Really, you can sign up for whatever perks and benefits you want. You do you! Speaking of perks…

Farmasi Makeup Consultant Perks & Benefits

how to sign up as a farmasi beauty consultant

Here are a few details about the Farmasi Influencer program, including commission amount, bonuses, discounts, perks, sign up cost, product details and more:

    • You make 50% commission on all personal sales through your personal link
    • You can refer other influencers and earn a commission on their sales too
    • You earn commissions on your referred customers forever (not just the first sale)
    • You only have to sell one thing every 6 months to stay active (unlike other affiliate programs that kick you out if you don’t make sales)
    • Opportunity to earn cash bonuses, trips, car allowance and more (these can be earned when you build a team)
    • The products are cruelty-free, meet European standards, and most are vegan (they’re an easy sell)

Let’s go into a bit more detail…

50% Commission + 50% Product Discount… FOREVER

Once you sign up as a Farmasi Beauty Influencer you immediately get 50% off all products (Starter Product Packs are discounted even further – more on that below) as well as 50% commissions on any products people buy through your link. If you’re a blogger then you probably know how rare a 50% commission structure is, especially on physical products! Even on digital products like ebooks and courses, commissions most commonly top out at 40%, so Farmasi is incredibly generous to its consultants.

The real kicker? You earn these commissions FOREVER, not just on the first sale. This is passive income at its finest, and is super rare for affiliate programs!

You Don’t Have to Stock Any Inventory

This one’s a biggie for me. With many direct sales companies, you have to carry a ton of inventory of your products for in-home demos and parties. But who wants to do that?! I remember signing up as a consultant for Mary Kay as a teenager and had to stock a gazillion makeup samples and products for home parties. It was a pain!

I don’t know about you, but for me, as a busy mom of 4 who’s already trying to minimize the clutter, the LAST thing I need is more “stuff” around the house. With Farmasi, all sales happen online through your personal website and products are shipped straight to your customers. Easy-peasy.

Farmasi Products Are Clean & High-Quality

Quick cosmetics industry lesson:

Um, kinda scary, right?

Even though Farmasi launched in the U.S. this year, they still adhere to European Standards (which is like getting the Gold Seal of Approval for safety and high-quality). Since Farmasi makeup is clean AND high quality, their products have been blowing up among beauty influencers on social media.

Farmasi Products are Surprisingly Affordable

With all this talk about how premium Farmasi products are, there’s got to be a premium price tag attached, right? Surprisingly, no! When I first saw how low their prices were, I messaged my upline and was like, “Ummm, are these the REAL prices?”.

Check out the prices and products for yourself right here.

To me, this is another thing that makes Farmasi so unique since most direct sales companies have a reputation for super-high prices.

Not only are the Farmasi prices inexpensive at retail, but remember, when you sign up as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant you get 50% additional discount.

Super-Low Sign Up Fee

Typically when you sign up as a distributor with a direct sales company, there is a sign up fee which covers the cost of your welcome kit as well as some marketing material and samples, and usually ranges from around $50 – $100 or more.

When you sign up as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant, you pay just a one-time fee 19.99 (most companies make you renew annually – not the case with Farmasi).

You have the option to add on Product Packs – sets of products at an even deeper discount to start your business strong – but that’s completely optional.

Why I Joined Farmasi

I’m a stay-at-home-mom of four young kids and I’ve also been working from home since my first son was born. I started by working for my sister’s online startup company, doing blogging, online marketing, customer service and public relations. When you work for a small startup, you wear a lot of hats 😉

It wasn’t long before I ventured off on my own, started a blog and learned the ins and outs of affiliate marketing. I also started to learn about Direct Sales and its unique business model that allows you to make passive income unlike anything else. AND, the more I researched it, the more I realized how similar it is to affiliate marketing, which I already loved!

I’ve dabbled in other Direct Sales companies, leveraging my blog to make commissions and earn passive income through growing a team.

When I heard about the Farmasi opportunity from a trusted blogger friend, researched the timing and Momentum it was in, and saw the generous Compensation Plan, I couldn’t refuse and signed up that same day! I’m super excited to grow with this brand.

You can sign up as a Farmasi rep right here if you want to jump in with me. We’ll lock arms and do this thang together! (Be choosy about who you sign up under! More on that below).

How To Become a Farmasi Makeup Consultant

Step 1: Click the “Beauty Influencer” Option

Head to Farmasius.com and click the “Choose” button in the “Beauty Influencer” box.

Step 2: Fill In Your Deets & Confirm Your Sponsor (I’m #0125099)

Next, you’ll fill in your personal deets.

If you’d like personal training from me and our team, make sure to confirm that I’m your sponsor (Candis Hidalgo, #0125099). Here’s why it’s important to choose the right person to sign up with:

Another thing I’m learning in this direct sales/blogging course is that it’s important to choose a great upline sponsor when you sign up with a company. Your upline can make or break your success!

On our team, you will have exclusive access to trainings on how to grow your sales and passive income with blogging, social media, attraction marketing, Instagram, YouTube, Facebook, email marketing and much more. No need to spam your friends 😉

And if all that seems overwhelming to you, our team also has Direct Sales professionals who have been working in the industry for over 20 years and an help you with offline methods as well. In short, our team rocks!

Step 3: Choose Your Farmasi Starter Kit and Product Pack

As mentioned above, it costs just $19.99 (+ shipping) to sign up, which covers the cost of your Starter Kit.

But what is a Farmasi Starter Kit, anyway? Basically, it’s a cute little box full of marketing material, catalogs and product samples to get you going.

 

If desired, you can also add on a Product Pack which are discounted even deeper than your normal 50%. The Farmasi Product Packs are priced at $49, $125, and $200, and can ONLY be purchased at the time of sign up. I recommend you purchase one of these packs if you plan to do personal reviews of the products, unboxing posts or videos, want to share your Farmasi journey and experience via social media or blogging or basically just want to try all of the Nordtrom-quality products at Walmart prices 😉.

Again, this is optional, and if you are on a tight budget you can forego the Product Packs entirely. (If you need help deciding which Product Pack you should get, just drop a comment below or email me and we can chat about it).

Next, just continue to the shipping and payment page to complete your order.

You’re now officially a Farmasi Makeup Consultant and can start using your referral link right away to earn commissions! Woot woot!

Be sure to look out for my welcome email after you sign up that has “10 Ways to Make Money With Farmasi in Your First Week”)

Hey & Welcome! Here’s What’s Next.

Once you’ve signed up, I’ll get a notification and will get in touch with you (email) with information to get you started as soon as possible. You’ll also get access to our training videos, tutorials and support groups right away.

Welcome! I’m super excited to work with you and help you crush it as a Farmasi Makeup Consultant 👊.

Wait! Can I Ask You A Question?

If you read this far and are still on the fence about becoming a Farmasi Makeup Consultant, would you please complete this sentence for me (in the comments or send me an email)?

“I’d sign up to become a Farmasi Beauty Influencer, BUT…”

I really want to help as many people as possible with this opportunity and the answer to this question will help me better understand your fears and hesitations.

Leave a comment below or send me an email at hi@smartmomblogger.com and we’ll chat! I’m also happy to answer any questions you have 🙂

How To Become An Insanely Self-Disciplined Person

How To Become An Insanely Self-Disciplined Person

“Disciplined people are more successful and happy”. Agree or disagree? We’ll come back to that…

Want to know how to become insanely self-disciplined? Your lack of discipline and ability to get things done is part of your creative "think big" personality, but there are tricks to becoming extremely self-disciplined! Check out this science-backed article about how to become insanely disciplined so you can FINALLY finish what you start and reach your BIG goals!

Have you ever set a goal, gotten all excited and motivated, committed to it with every fiber of your being (Yes I WILL lose 20 pounds… Yes I WILL learn to play the guitar this year… Yes I WILL start and grow a profitable blog)… then gave up when the fire died, or it got too hard, or it took too long, or someone told you you couldn’t do it?

Has that happened to you more than once? Does it feel like it keeps happening to you?

If so, I soooo feel you.

I mean, I set SMART goals, plan it all out on paper and put it all into my calendar down to the last nitty-gritty detail.

But then I feel like I have to FIGHT SO HARD to NOT give up on my goals. I go through seasons of total unstoppable fire and then other seasons of feeling tired, bored, lazy and like my goals are silly and I should just watch Netflix instead.

What’s with this?! It’s frustrating, isn’t it?

We really want this thing. Not just kind of, but really really REALLY want it. So why the heck do we keep giving up?!

Turns out, it comes down to one word: DISCIPLINE.

Because the big secret I realized is this: MOTIVATION doesn’t last. I wish it did, because oh mama, doesn’t it feel like you’re on an amazing high when you’re motivated?!

You feel like you can take on the world! You feel like you can make a million bucks! You feel like you can walk into any room and OWN IT.

But then, you wake up the next day after a long night with a sick baby, and out of the corner of your eye you catch the huge pile of laundry staring at you from the open hall closet, and all of a sudden all of your fiery motivation is shot to hell.

Too dramatic? Nah, I think you feel me.

“Yeah, that’s great Candis. Glad you had this epiphany and all”, you’re saying, “but I already know I need to be more disciplined. I’m just… NOT.”

Okay, I hear you. I totally get it. Me neither. But we ain’t dead yet, sister!

What we are not yet, we can still become.

Once upon a time, scientists believed that our brains – and therefore our personalities, traits, habits and preferences – were hard-wired after childhood, unable to grow or change. But in recent decades, scientists and psychologists have discovered that our brains can continue to grow and change throughout our lives as a result of our interactions with our environment.

This concept is called “neuroplasticity”, and in short, it means we can change our habits and traits if we want to! We are not destined to stay in this seemingly endless cycle of motivation-rut-motivation-rut. Studies show that there’s a legitimate trick to getting yourself unstuck:

You need to set up a SYSTEM for your success.

In the eye-opening article “How to Motivate Yourself”, Stanford Behavior Scientist, BJ Fogg, shares that motivation comes in waves. We shouldn’t RELY on motivation alone, but instead leverage it to act right away in setting up a SYSTEM so we can be successful even when it fades:

“We should assume that our “future self” is going to be lazy with no motivation. We need to set up systems to make achieving our goals as easy as possible — even when our motivation is low.” For example, I was trying to form a gym habit. I’d get up in the morning planning to go, but after a few minutes decide not to. I discovered that if I put my gym clothes and my shoes next to my bed, I would put them on first thing and by that point, I “might as well” just go.

And this is what brings me to Shelby.

When I found myself stalling in my new business, constantly trying new strategies halfheartedly and whisking from one new tactic to the next without following through, I turned to my teammate Shelby Putnam.

From the moment I met her, it was clear that Shelby was an insanely disciplined person. Like WHOA disciplined.

She had her health and business goals down and took DAILY action in her business.

Just check out her transformation from our 30-Day Healthy Living program:

Pretty freaking remarkable, right?!

And even though the healthy living program is designed to make weight loss as easy as possible, the plain truth is that not everyone sticks with it. You don’t get these kinds of results unless you are committed and disciplined.

I mean, how many times have you sworn to yourself that you were going to eat healthy only to throw in the towel when hubby brought home Magnum chocolate ice cream bars? Ahem, not that that’s ever happened to me. Okay, maybe it has… moving on.

What’s more, Shelby was swiftly promoted to the next level in the business within months after starting and her business is exploding more and more every time we meet up or chat.

This month, she’s in the TOP 10 on our whole team (among hundreds of people) for personal sales and recruiting! That’s just crazy, y’all. I mean, I’m a California girl born and raised and I just said “y’all”. That’s gotta show you how impressed I am.

I mean, this girl has it figured out.

So a couple weeks ago I reached out to her and begged her to let me in on her secrets! Seriously, I left her an out-of-the-blue voice message on Voxer and was like, “Girl, tell me how you’re so freaking disciplined! Share your hacks, tips and secrets!”

(Well, the actual message was like 5 minutes long because I ramble, but that was the gist.)

And let me tell you! She dropped some knowledge bombs, ah-ha revelations, and tough love straight-talk.

Turns out this powerhouse was a 5x National Champion gymnast on the USA team and had the virtue of discipline instilled in her from a very young age.

Her tips were so helpful to me personally that I asked her if she’d let me share them with all of you! And of course she said yes, because she’s awesome like that (video interview below).

And you wanna know the really crazy thing? All of the 5 discipline hacks she shares lead to the same conclusion that the science shows: if you lack self-discipline, you need to set up a SYSTEM for yourself to succeed.

“Yeah, but how the heck do you DO THAT?? I mean, what, specifically, do you mean by setting up a system?”, you’re asking.

Watch our interview below to hear from Shelby herself. You can also scroll down below the video to get the bullet-points.

Okay, without further ado, get ready for some game-changing life advice!

Shelby is an Independent Consultant with Arbonne and an inspirational powerhouse! To connect with her, hit her up on Instagram and check out her health & wellness website here.

1. Map it out and Set It Up

For her 30-day healthy living challenge, Shelby wrote out on her physical calendar her entire 30 days of shakes, meals and workouts ahead of time.

She also put out all of the products she needed and set up a meal delivery service for her family so she wouldn’t be tempted at the grocery store or when cooking things she couldn’t eat. This will look different for you depending on your goals, resources and weaknesses, but basically you need to set up your environment for success.

2. Positive Self-Talk

“I am a huge self-talker and I think it makes a huge difference in my discipline. Every morning when I wake up, I tell myself that I love myself, my body is beautiful, I got this, and I can do this. Even if I don’t feel this way, I say it. Because when I say it, it makes me believe it.”

Sound to foo-foo for you? Thing is, we all talk to ourselves whether we like to believe it or not:

“We all hold internal conversations as we go through our days, and sometimes our nights. Psychologists have identified one important type of these inner monologues as “self-talk,” in which you provide opinions and evaluations on what you’re doing as you’re doing it. When this is upbeat and self-validating, the results can boost your productivity. However, when the voice is critical and harsh, the effect can be emotionally crippling.” – Psychology Today

So Shelby’s not the only one who’s discovered the effectiveness of this practice. Psychological studies have shown that constructive self-talk is correlated with higher performance, improved creativity, better leadership and overall improved happiness and self-esteem.

3. Have Visual Cues: Positive Notes and Visual Goals

To keep herself motivated to stick with the healthy living program, Shelby left notes of encouragement for herself around her calendar, work area, mirrors and pretty much all over her house!

To keep herself progressing daily in her business, she has her next-level business goals posted in plain sight, along with her income producing activities for each day.

4. Accountability Partner

“Honestly, one of the biggest things that helped me was that I literally checked in with Jessica (our team leader) every.single.day. I’d Vox her and say, “Hey Jessica! I did this today for my 30 days! I did my 2 teas! I did my shakes! I did this! I did that!”. So I think having that person to check in with every day helped to solidify it in my brain. I knew I’d have to check in and give a report.”

And she’s not wrong. The American Society of Training and Development (ASTD) did a study on accountability and found that if you have a specific accountability appointment with a person you’ve committed to, your chances for success goes up to 95%! Now that’s just downright cray-cray.

(I can attest to this in my own experience as well. My year-long journey to losing 38 pounds after baby #4 only worked because I had an accountability partner to work out with every day until it became a habit. My latest burst in business development and writing consistency? A result of a 21-day accountability challenge a teammate and I agreed on. And this very article you’re reading on my blog only got finished because I had an appointment with Shelby to do the interview and I told her I’d have the outline done before our interview. Accountability is where it’s at!).

5. Make the Decision

“Lastly, when I make up my mind, I make up my mind. When I decide I’m going to do something, I go all in and go for it.”

You might be tempted to dismiss this last one as fluffy, but it’s absolutely essential.

In fact, it’s so important that business and network marketing mogul, Eric Worre, cites this as the #1 “secret” or thing that determines success:

“Success starts with making a decision. A decision that you are going pro, a decision that you are going to the top no matter what. And that decision starts with you and your commitment to becoming a professional. A decision that says “No matter the set backs I might face and no matter the challenge, I am going to the top.”

So make your decision. What will you accomplish? Decide which outcome you want, work your butt off to get it, and keep your promise to yourself every.single.day.

So let’s bring this all back around. Are disciplined people happier and more successful? Study upon study shows that it’s true.

But at the very least, you can use the virtue of discipline in your own life to FINALLY reach your goals, whatever they may be.

So tell me… what’s your current BIG goal? Let me know in the comments below.

Don’t have one yet? Then you MUST watch this 2-minute video… and then read my last 3 sentences below the video.

After watching this, I bet you feel so motivated and fired up for life and big goals and dreams that you feel like you can take on the world!

But you know that won’t last, right? So right now – in this moment – take the 5 tips you learned above on how to become insanely disciplined and go write out your #1 goal, make a plan, and set up a SYSTEM so you can’t lose.

YOU’RE WORTH IT.

The Start Today Journal by Rachel Hollis Review

The Start Today Journal by Rachel Hollis Review

Rachel Hollis is a motivational speaker for women, author of the New York Times best-selling book, Girl, Wash Your Face, and an international phenomenon. She recently announced via a Facebook Live video that she’s releasing her first ever product: The Start Today Journal.

In her announcement, Rachel said she created the journal to help facilitate a practice she does every day that has changed her life: Write down 10 dreams you have for your life.

“The Start Today Journal is the best tool to help you achieve your goals. For ninety days you will write down five things you’re grateful for, ten dreams you’re going to make happen, and the one goal you’re going to achieve first. We believe that with this daily practice you will be able to find success both personally and professionally.” – Rachel Hollis

Here’s an overview and review of the purpose of the Start Today Journal.

How To Use The Start Today Journal by Rachel Hollis

You can do this daily ritual in a simple spiral notebook (or the FREE printable pages I made for you… scroll up or down the page to snag them), but Rachel wanted to create something more intentional for herself and her community of amazing women. Here’s a video that explains what the journal will be and do:

The Introduction of the Start Today Journal is a short but powerful 11 pages of writing with a few additional pages for brainstorming and writing out your dreams. And it is powerful. I’ve read those pages over and over and over again to challenge myself.

It explains how to use it: Envision your future best self and ideal future life and write it down as if it has already happened. These can be huge dreams or reminders of who you want to be. Rachel’s examples are: “Girl, Wash Your Face has sold a million copies” (BIG dream) and “I am an exceptional mother” (reminder of who she wants to be).

Each page starts with a section for gratitude so you can write down 5 things you’re grateful for every day. Then come the 10 dreams, and you write those bad boys out every.single.day. Finally, transform those dreams into goals by pursuing only one at a time and breaking them down into actionable steps.

Start Today Journal Fun Facts and Hacks

  • The journals are released in small batch designs each season and for special holidays. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
  • Every single run since she launched the journals last year have completely sold out.
  • Some runs of the journal also launch with coordinating notebooks in the same design
  • Rachel wants everyone to “start today” with this practice, even if you can’t afford the journal or miss them before they’re sold out. She reads the opening introduction pages of the Start Today Journal in her RISE Podcast 72: “The Daily Practice That Changed My Life” and encourages you to use a simple notebook or blank sheet of paper if you don’t have the journal (be sure to grab your FREE printable Start Today Journal pages below).

That’s it for now – are you excited for the Start Today Journal? Have you already been using it for a while? What are your thoughts? Let’s chat in the comments section!

Make it a great day,
