Pink Zebra is Going Blue In April for Autism

autism speaks.jpg

Pink Zebra’s Hope Program has teamed up with Autism Speaks. Our goal was to donate $50.,000 by July of 2019 and we are almost there! So what does Pink Zebra do? We up the goal! This April we are going blue with a Blue Blend Bash and a product line that will give back 10% to Autism Speaks. Our goal for April is $10,000! Upping our overall goal to $60,000. And I am so thankful to be a part of this!

I am a former behavior specialist for kids on the spectrum, so this is very near and dear to my heart. Autism is such a broad diagnosis that is broken into function levels. No child with Autism is the same and needs to be treated individually.

Our personal goal is to book 5 Blue Blend Bashes in April that will help is reach our goal of $10,000. If you are local to the Western Pa area, a home party is by far the most fun. Not close to us? We can do a live Blend Bash on Facebook as well! Remember, every Blue Blend Bash counts! Can’t host but would love to order? We have a line that 10% of sales will be heading to Autism Speaks too! Are you willing to have a little fun while helping a great cause? Message us for dates.

Surround Yourself With Positive. Find Your Tribe.


Untitled design (12).png

Ok.  I will admit it.  I am a self help book junkie.  Ok, maybe self help book isn’t the actual term.  I love hearing about those people who couldn’t get their shit together and then did.  I guess they are more motivational than self help.  Heck, I don’t care what they are called.  I am just thankful that they exist.

I work from home with Direct Sales.  Unfortunately, when people hear that, opinions start flying.  “Oh, you don’t have. a real job?” “ Oh you are one of those people.” “Oh,  you don’t look like a direct sales person, I hate people like that.”  Wow.  First, the fact that we judge others by their job title (or anything for that matter) is disheartening.  What really kills me is that first comment.  “Will you be getting a real job?” Hmmm, my bank account sure makes me feel like it is a real job every month when my real paycheck is deposited.  But hang on, that is not what this is about.  I am not here to defend direct sales or working from home.  I am here to talk about surrounding your self with positive people.


See, this is where those motivational books come in to play.  Being that I am my own boss, I like to challenge myself to read a non-fiction every month. Something that will help my business. I keep finding the same theme in each of these books.  Rachel Hollis, (Girl Wash Your Face) , Brenden Burchard (6 Habits of High Achievers), Tony Robbins,  etc.  All of these coaches are telling us that we need to surround ourselves with positive people. We need to find our squad, our tribe, our circle. We need to remove the toxic and add in the cheerleaders.  


This doesn’t mean that we surround ourselves with people who blow smoke and spend their free time praising us.  Yes, that should be apart of your circle atmosphere, praising each other when you are killing it (not the smoke blowing).  But your squad is so much more.  Those are your people. They are the ones who reel you back in when you start to lose yourself.  They are there to help lift you up when you are down in the dumps.  They celebrate your achievements and are the ones laying down the law when you fail.  Our law: go ahead, cry, yell, scream, be angry and blame the world but you only get 30 mins.  After that, get it together and get back to the grind. In return for their amazing ability to help you keep it together, you are doing the same for them.  They say it takes a village to raise a child.  Why does that village disappear when your a grow up? It takes a “village”, i.e, squad, tribe, circle, whatever you call yourselves, to help stay grounded and on task and sane in an insane society. 


So what is this tribe? It’s friendship.  Real friendship.  Back in the day (I swear I am not 80) we actually called each other on the phone and talked. You would walk around the kitchen, wrapping yourself in the phone cord as you helped, cook or clean up after dinner.  You told your friends what was happening in your life.  You would take pictures when you were together and paste them in a photo album.  Sometimes you got creative and even scrapbooked!  Now, we have social media.  We can take pictures and post them to our online album.  We can tag our friends and even do some fun hashtags. We can talk through email, text, messenger, Snapchat and every other social media outlet out there.  We can make a post and within second we get a message asking if we are ok.  Or you get a fun meme telling you to pull it together.  You circle is there for you and you know it.  


We need positive relationships to stay grounded and to be successful.  We need to know who we can trust in a world of fake faces and wolves in sheep’s clothing. I challenge you to take a good look at who you surround yourself with.  Negativity breeds negativity and the same is true for being around positive people. I am so thankful for my circle, my squad and my throuple (don’t worry Shameless fans, it isn’t what you think).  They love me and care about me and the feeling is mutual. I have no idea where I would be without them.  If you can’t look around and see something good in your relationships, take a step back and reevaluate.  Are you the change?  Are you the positive? Are they?  Are you being pulled down into a negative spiral?  Have a conversation with them and see what they think.  If things are looking dark, find a light.  Find that positive person and start that circle.  Start that tribe.  You deserve it.

Pink Zebra Takes Care of Their Consultants

flight.jpg

This fall, I was fortunate enough to promote to the title of Director with Pink Zebra.   This is a high, leadership title that comes with extra pay and some great perks!  Now, don’t get me wrong, you have to work your butt off to get to this level and maintain this level and Pink Zebra rewards you for all of your hard work.  

In January, Pink Zebra flew my husband and me to Houston for my Director trip.  Sugarland, Texas is where our home office is located.  We arrived the day before our “official” trip was to start and were picked up from the airport and deposited at the beautiful Sugarland Marriot. From there we headed to Escalante’s, this AMAZING Mexican restaurant.  I had a delicious grilled chicken salad with two great dressings.  Yes, two.  I couldn’t decide so they brought me both. We headed back to our room after our late dinner so I could get my beauty sleep for our big day. 

 

I made every attempt to sleep, honestly.  Going to sleep wasn’t the problem, staying asleep was.  After 3 attempts to go back to sleep, I jumped out of bed right before 6 to start the process of getting ready.  I am a low maintenance kind of gal.  My attire usually consists of yoga pants, a t-shirt and my hair in a ponytail or messy bun. Today was something different.  Today, I would be treated like a princess.

I won’t bore you with the personal application of my make up, the curling of my hair, etc, but I will say, it was all on point.  Everything was going as planned.

We headed downstairs to await the limo.  Yes, that’s right, a white stretch limo rolled right up to the doors.  I looked at my husband and asked if that was ours since it was 15 mins early.  He looked around and let me know there was no one else here waiting for a limo.  After jumping in and inhaling all of the wonderfullness that was going on around me, I started to panic.  There was going to be a photographer following me around for the day!  Starting with the limo exit.  I took the next few minute to Google the “classy” way to exit a limo.  Yes, I am that crazy.  

I had it all planned but the minute we pulled up to the building and saw the pink carpet that had been rolled out along with Tom and Kelly Gaines standing there waiting, all that “class” went out the window.  I jumped out of that limo and ran over to Kelly to give her a hug, keeping the tears at bay as long as possible.  I entered the front door and was greeted by the company.  Yes, that’s right.  Everyone stopped what they were doing to great me!

After saying hello and being introduced to everyone, I was crowned.  Andrea placed my tiara on my head and at this point in time, my face physically hurt from smiling so big!  From there on out, I toured the company and learned the ins and outs of the Pink Zebra Home productions.  When we finally stopped for lunch, my head was spinning with all of the information I had received. 

After lunch, it was time to be measured for my boots. At director level, the boot maker comes and takes your measurements for your custom made Pink Zebra cowboy boots!  After being measured, hair and makeup came in to get me all dolled up for my photoshoot.  Talk about feeling famous!  

After all was said and done at Home Office, we headed back tot he hotel to await the owners.  They picked us up and we headed to a private dinner.  It was a blast!  

 

I can honestly say that I have never met two people who are as genuine and caring as Tom and Kelly Gaines.  They truly care about the consultants in their company and hear them out when their are suggestions or concerns. Pink Zebra rewards consultants for their hard work.  We receive monthly recognition, jewelry, trips and so much more. I am absolutely in love with my job.  If you are interested in learning more about this amazing company, please message us.

GOALS! Bring it on 2018!

gaols.jpg

It’s that time of year again! Out with the old and in with the new! Everyone is ready to drop those pounds, get healthier, make more money, get that promotion, etc, etc, etc.  Big plans for 2018.  Big goals too.  Making those bad boys isn’t our problem.  Sticking to them and making them happen, that seems to be the struggle.

So how do we do it?  How do we actually accomplish those 2018 goals?  We start by creating S.M.A.R.T.E.R goals.  This acronym, along with some helpful tips, should keep you on track for this new year.

SPECIFIC:  

Make sure that the goal(s) you chose are specific.  Be detailed.  See what you want in your mind.  A broad goal leaves room for you to put it on the back burner, to adjust to fit your current need instead of striving for something bigger and better.

MEASURABLE:

How will you measure if you have reached your goal? How will you know?  Do you want to save for a new car?  How much are you saving?  How will you know if it is enough?  This step make take some time.  You may have to do a little research.

ATTAINABLE:

Let’s be real here.  Is your goal actually achievable?  For instance, you are a 27-year-old attorney who wants to run in the next presidential election.  Guess what!  It’s not going to happen.  You have to be 35 years old to be the President of the US.  In our business, it would be crazy to join our team today and expect to hit the top level in our career plan in a year.  It isn’t going to happen.  Make sure that your goal is something within your reach.

RELEVANT:

Does your goal make sense for your big picture?  Is it result-based?  Is your goal something that you have control over?

TIME-BOUND:

This step is wicked important.  You need a time frame.  You see all of these steps are tied together.  If you don’t have a time frame, it’s easy to forget or make excuses.  There is very little accountability when there is no time frame. Are you looking for a promotion?  Ok, when?  When do you want to promote?  Are you looking to add team members or customers to your business?  Ok, how many and BY WHEN?

EVALUATE:

This step happens a little later on. Maybe it’s a week later, maybe it’s monthly.  At some point in time, ( a time you have already designated) you want to step back and evaluate the situation.  Evaluate where you are on your timeline for reaching that goal.

REVIEW or REWARD:

We have evaluated and now must review our plan of action.  We don’t want to change our goal but we may need to change the plan on how we get there.  

Rewarding yourself for a job well done is a great motivator.  Maybe you reward after you complete certain steps to reaching your goal.  Or why not reward yourself at certain markers.  Once you are 1/4 of the way there or 1/2 way there.  Rewards will remind you that you are on your way! 

smarter.png


You have your SMARTER  acronym ready to go.  Let’s look at some tips to help you out even further.

  1. WRITE DOWN YOUR GOALS!!!! That’s right! It feels awesome to cross that particular something off of a list or put a huge star next to the goal once it’s reached.  Plus writing your goals on paper makes them tangible. You are putting them out there in the Universe (yes, I have read the Secret).

  2. Create an action plan for each goal.  What are the steps you are going to take to reach those goals?  Maybe they are daily tasks, or weekly, or monthly. Whatever the plan is, write it down too.

  3. Create a vision board.  Some agree and some don’t.  I am a firm believer in vision boards.  Seeing what you want to accomplish will help you stay motivated.

  4. Share your goals.  By sharing your goals.  You can share with one or many.  Either way, you are putting your goals out there and others can help you stay accountable.

Ticket System: Staying Sane While Being a Parent

As a full-time RVer, having a quiet place to get away an be tough.  Our current home on wheels consists of momma, daddy, two kids 7 and 10, and two dogs.  It can get kind of crazy in there.  We knew what we were getting into but went with the "winging it" plan when it came to discipline. 

Let me start by saying before I started with Pink Zebra Home, I was a school teacher in a high discipline district for seven years.  Before that, I was a behavior specialist.  It was literally my job to help parents handle behavior issues with their children.  So why was it so hard for me to handle issues with my own children?  

I'll tell you why. Everyone has to be onboard.  That means ANY and ALL caregivers. This can be tough when mom, dad, aunt, uncle, grandma, and grandpa are all a part of that crowd.  Well! When you are full-time RVing, the only people involved are those in the RV!  

We decided to start a token economy system.  Token economy systems are much like pay8ing your kids to behave and you know what? I'm Ok with that.  Here is what you need.

How does it work?

First, you need some sort of ticket/token.  The Dollar Store sells rolls of tickets for $1.00.  You can use marbles, tokens, print out fun money, etc.  Something that is tangible for kids to hang onto.  

Rewards are the MOST important part of this system.  Rewards should be things that your kiddoes LOVE!! The rewards each need to be assigned an amount.  How many tokens will it 'cost' for your child for a particular item? MOST IMPORTANTLY whatever rewards you choose to use should ONLY be available in your 'store'.  Not something you give them to pacify them at the grocery store, or that they can get from Grandma.  Store items are ONLY available with tickets!

In our house (on wheels), rewards are as follows:

  1. 30 mins Xbox: 30 tickets

  2. 30 mins Ipad: 25 tickets

  3. Tiny Pop (only time our kids can have soda) 15 tickets

  4. Small candy Bar (minis) 10 tickets

  5. Movie Choice: 15 tickets

This teaches the kids how to manage 'money'.  I love that they have to decide what is most important to them too.  Our little one gets a hold of 15 tickets and buys a soda.  The 10-year-old likes to save his up for a day of fun.

 

How do you earn?

This is totally up to you.  We sat down with our kids and told them we were paying them for being children.  Good, kind, responsible children.  What does that mean?

Our kids earn tickets when:

  1. We catch them being kind to each other.

  2. Finishing a school lesson (tear free)

  3. Doing chores

  4. Helping without being asked to help

  5. Being kind

  6. Being fair

  7. Being provoked by the sibling and handling it appropriately.

One of the most important things is that we don't take tickets away.  Once they are earned, they are earned.  Also, make sure that you ALWAYS have tickets on you.  Telling a child, "I owe you 5 tickets" is not the same as handing them 5 tickets. 

We have seen a HUGE improvement with behavior and interaction.  Remember that kids hae the same feelings adults do.  It's ok if they are having a bad day or are tired and fussy.  The important thing is teaching them how to handle those situations.  I know myself that I have woken up on the wrong side of the bed and haven't been as nice as I should.  That's OK!  We are human!  Don't expect the little ones to be anything more! 

This teaches the kids how to manage 'money'.  I love that they have to decide what is most important to them too.  Our little one gets a hold of 15 tickets and buys a soda.  The 10-year-old likes to save his up for a day of fun. It is EZPZ for parents too, and let’s be real, we have a lot going on. The easier it is on the adults, the better we will follow through.
