Our VitaFive Experience

Vitafive is the Best Vegetarian Vitamins we have experienced.  VitaFive Vitamins is a Vitamin Subscription Box that is personalized.  You can choose one of their custom packs already done or you can build you own. The each month they send you your vitamins individually packaged with instructions to take.  When I first tried them out over a year ago I got the Immune pack and loved it.  When I picked them back up again a few months ago I got the Active Pack and I am loving it.  So I signed my kids up for the VitaFive Kids Vitamins and they love them!

Seriously, my whole family LOVES these vitamins so much that they remind me EVERY SINGLE DAY to pack them with their lunch or to give them to them at dinner.  They love the taste and I love that they beg for them.  With the packs being individually labeled with their name and packaged, it makes it very easy to pack with their school lunch.  We are not vegan or vegetarian but we do appreciate quality food and products and this one is a big win.  So far a BIG THUMBS UP for Vegetarian Vitamins!!!

Vegetarian Vitamins

Things that I love that Vitafive offers:

  • Customization – having the option to create a custom pack tailored to my specific needs
  • Vegan (5 of the 8 gummies), Vegetarian, Allergen Free and Gluten Free
  • Convenience – they are placed into individual packs for each day AND they are delivered to your door every month (so great for people who travel or are on-the-go)
  • Taste – the gummies taste amazing, which makes them not only popular with adults, but kids love them too.  I literally eat them as an afternoon snack.  My sweet tooth is satisfied & I took my vitamins.
  • Cuteness (yes this is important) – names on each of my packs

Rockets of Awesome Experience:

*make sure to read update at bottom of post* I want to start with I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS KIDS CLOTHING SUBSCRIPTION BOX!  Signing up and getting my 1st box was easy.  I went through and did a quick questionnaire online about my oldest whom I'm subscribing for and waited for my sneak peek to arrive.  Within 48 hours I received an e-mail to Sneak-A-Peek and I did.  I was shocked to have to say no to 5 items because I had just completed the profile but alas, I X those out and went and chose others things I thought she would like.  It was very easy to replace the items.  See Photo Below of Screenshots.  2 days later everything was shipped out.  Kids Clothing Subscription Review

About 3 days later we received the bag of clothes and Emma dove in to unbox it.  Over all she really liked the box, the couple things she didn't like, I liked LOL.  We ended up really liking 6 of the 8 items so this is where it is important to do the math.  The 6 items we liked cost $139 but we could keep all 8 items for only $150 (they offer a keep it all discount) so for only $11 more we went ahead and kept the last 2 items that were cute, just not needed.

Kids Clothing Subscription Review

UPDATE 2 MONTHS LATER

At this point have had the Rockets of Awesome kids clothing for about 2 months.  We have washed, worn and used the items we have received and everything still looks great.  The clothing wash well and do not have lots of weird washing instructions or dry clean requests.  Emma still loves the clothes too!  So big thumbs up!  Over all I do recommend this kids clothing subscription box!  We are excited for her next box to head our way.  If you want to give them a try sign up here.

Ways to Grow Your Business this Summer – Mompreneur

SamanthaJournalLeave a Comment

Hey Hey, so I am still at it yall.  I am listening to Christy Wright's Business Boutique podcasts on Spotify (no this isn't some kind of plug or ad LOL).  And speaking honestly, I started listening to the podcasts just out of curiosity.  I do not expect to hear anything ground breaking, after all, I have been an entrepreneur for 10+ years and a mompreneur for 6+ years.  Very little is earth shattering in my line of work or on being a business owner at this point.  But I did end up discovering something else… confidence and courage in ME and what I am doing.

Do you want different results in your business?  Yes!  Ok, how willing are you to change?  Ooooo is that a no?  If you keep doing what your doing, your going to keep getting what your getting.  Today Christy spoke about how to achieve something different than what you are getting now.  And guess what?  It does require living by a new recipe!  Here are the 5 tips she gave:

Ways to Grow Your Business this Summer

  • Make 1 Sacrifice – what does this mean?  You have to change something.  So if you normally spend your evenings scrolling through Facebook, this evening you won't, you will sit and work on your dream.  Or maybe you like to sleep in?  Well tomorrow you are going to wake up early and work on a plan.  Normally take your kids to the pool during the week in the summer?  Choose a day that they have personal time in their rooms and you work on growing your clientele.  This is just 1 change, go do it!
  • Build 1 Key Relationship – of course you have your community, church and group but here you need to find 1 key person not in any of those groups.  Go find a blogger you don't know.  Go find that marketing professional you don't know.  Find someone outside your norm, set a date and make magic happening.  Don't think of things to do, think of people to meet who can be a resource to you!  Then go to them and have coffee.  The way you grow your business this summer might not be through something you do, but someone you meet!

Throw some things against the wall and see what sticks. -Christy Wright

  • Do 1 Thing New – something you have never done before.  Maybe you have never promoted your business on Instagram.  Go promote it!  Perhaps you have never done a Facebook Live video.  Go Live!  Maybe there is a product clients have been asking for.  Take the time to create it!  Go do something brand new.

How to Build Your Business

  • Make 1 Investment in your Business – this can be a couple things.  Perhaps it's financial.  You are going to spend some money to create a marketing plan or perhaps you are going to hire an accountant to take over taxes.  Perhaps your going to buy that desired piece of equipment.  Another type would be Time.  Perhaps you will invest your time in a different way.  Or maybe you are going to work not 20 hours but 30 hours each week for the summer.  Invest in something to further you and your business.
  • Do 1 Thing that Makes You Uncomfortable – and the ones above do not count!  Growth is Discomfort!   Remember growing pains as a kid?  Yeah, here we are again 🙂  Grow your business and yourself!  Define that 1 thing you know you need to do and go do it.  Whether it's introducing that new product or teaching a class, just go do something.  Maybe you just need to really start your business, turn that hobby into a money making machine!

Every thing you ever want is on the other side of your comfort zone!

Hey Ladies, so I'm still at it.  I am listening to Christy Wright's Business Boutique podcasts on Spotify (no this isn't some kind of plug or ad LOL).  And speaking honestly, I started listening to the podcasts just out of curiosity.  I do not expect to hear anything ground breaking, after all, I have been an entrepreneur for 10+ years and a mompreneur for 6+ years.  Very little is earth shattering in my line of work or on being a business owner at this point.  But I did end up discovering something else… confidence and encouragement in ME and what I am doing.

When you contribute something, do you want to be recognized?  Do you go out of your way to make sure someone thanks you for it?  Do you need credit?  This is natural, but the problem is when we depend on being recognized in order to be happy with what we have done.  When we do this, we put the power of our own satisfaction in someone else's hands when it actually belongs in ours!  Do it because you have been led to do it and that alone.  God calls us to be humble in heart and to put others above ourselves.  So part of that is letting go the need for credit and to start doing what you do for you and God alone. (and in a world of selfies and influencers this is hard…ahem speaking to myself here).

When you think about Making an Impact do you think of making a big splash?  Someone who has lots of followers?  A big platform and spotlight?  Here Christy talks about how some of the biggest things you will ever do will be things that others never knew you did.  Yall, this was so good for me to hear.  I've struggled with this for over a year now.

I work in my “real job” in a situation where I do all the leg work to make everything happen, I'm the Conductor but the Orchestra, those who fulfill my plans, get all the praise.  I made it fine for about 8 years and then I just cracked.  *Yes there were outside factors that helped make this happen too*  But the fact of the matter is, I started to demand to be included in the praise everyone else was receiving.  Guess what yall?  It didn't make me any happier and it did make them any happier LOL.  So as I have been walking through this battle “trying to find a solution” to my struggle when I listened to this podcast.  Wowza!!!!

There is no limit to the amount of good you can do if you don't care who gets the credit. – Ronald Reagan

Now there is a big difference between taking credit and needing credit.  Always accept the compliment but don't do it for the compliment.  Christy shared a story that resinated in my household too.  My husband OFTEN does little things like clean the whole kitchen, install something I have been “meaning to get to”, take the kids out to play so I can relax and he does these things without making a show, asking for credit or even pointing it out.  Yall, that is huge!  He does it because he loves me!  And yall, it is so awesome when I discover these things he did without expecting anything in return.  It's so impressive!  *Note – it is important for me to affirm him and go to him honoring and complimenting what he did….but this is a talk for another time and another blog post LOL.*

When we depend on being recognized in order to be happy with what we have done, we put the power for our own satisfaction in someone else's hands when it belongs in ours!

You may say to yourself, I need to hear from the other person to make sure I did it right or to make sure that they received what I did.  And that is fine, but if they don't get back with you or they get back with you and don't like what you did and you become disappointed.  You were not doing the good deed for yourself or for God but rather for their approval.  Chasing approval and people pleasing is a bottomless pit.  This act of making ourselves feel good by doing things isn't healthy and isn't what God calls of you!  Be proud of yourself because you know what you did and that is enough!  So sit and think for a bit.  How do you Use Your Gifts to Make a Difference and who are you doing it for?
