Hello Pink Elephant Followers (and to all who spark an interest)!
It’s been awhile since I have been over here to read everyone’s blogs. I haven’t been writing blog posts here and I have been missing it.
I am now following my biggest passion and dreams. Natural health for pets, with a special interest in the area of CBD oil and Essential oils.
It has been my dream for many years to have a business that offers natural remedies for people with pets. To educate others on the alternative choices of caring for your pet in a natural way. To understand that natural care offers your pet a quality of life, as well as longevity.
I am all about saving money, and healing using nature’s way. Trusting that when the body gets the tools it needs, it will heal itself.
I have been practicing natural health with my pets for 17 yrs. Until the passion grew so huge, it naturally evolved to teaching others what I have learned.
I had started an essential oils (Essential Oils for Pets & Their People) business several years back and it was moving forward and doing well. Then the company I was a distributor for was hit by the FDA. I was one of the first to get notice, I had to change my posts or shut it down. It was impossible to delete or change hundreds of posts in such a short period of time. After over 2 yrs. of building a business, everything had to be shut down. My blogs, my FB page and all social media, my website, etc. Everything GONE…just like that!
I was devastated! But, I eventually let it go and moved on. Everything I had worked for was gone, but the calling to do what I love did not stop. You know that inner calling that won’t rest till you pursue it? Because it is a part of who you are, it is what you are here to do. You must follow your passion, your heart, your soul!

I had to think how I could start again. How could I approach this, when I was SO limited on what I could say about the oils. I was frozen in fear to start again. For years I wasn’t sure how to get started again. I made some attempts, but fear often won it over. I had to get the courage to start again, even if it failed, it was better then not pursuing my passion. So, I started again.
I don’t have it all figured out and it is MUCH harder this second time around. Being a solopreneur is HARD work. Working several different jobs, caring for my animal family of 6 (2 horses, 4 cats, all rescues), managing a household, and doing all that a new business requires! It can be a bit overwhelming!
For me, it was not a choice. No matter how hard it was, I had to go after it. It was better then sitting at a 9-5 job, with a idiot boss, and toxic co-workers! Being in a regular job would be as final as death itself. I couldn’t bare to think of it!
So, here I am, going for it….again!
This blog just might become one about starting a business of your dreams! Following all the challenges and ups and downs of being an entrepreneur.
For now, I hope that it inspires you to pursue what sits in your heart. Follow that intutition I have spoke about in my Pink Elephants blog posts. Just quiet that noise around you, and do what comes to you. No logic, no thinking about, just follow it. As you listen more, that inner voice will become clearer and clearer.
I hope that you will come over and visit my FB page, and my website. Especially, if you have pets! If you like what you see or hear, go ahead and follow my page. I would be so pleased to have some of my Pink Elephant crowd join me on my newest journey!
