Why is Collagen such a hot topic?

Why is Collagen such a hot topic?

I have just started taking a Collagen supplement, this has led me down the path, of why it is important and also how confusing it can be.

In recent years, collagen has gained significant attention in the beauty, wellness, and health industry.

Understanding Collagen: Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, comprising a significant portion of our skin, bones, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. It acts as the structural framework that provides strength, elasticity, and support to various tissues and organs. Our body’s natural collagen production declines as we age, leading to common signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and joint stiffness.

Beauty Benefits of Collagen:

  1. Skin Rejuvenation: Collagen is important for maintaining skin elasticity and hydration. Supplementing with collagen may help reduce wrinkles, improve skin firmness, and promote a youthful complexion.
  2. Hair and Nail Health: Strong, lustrous hair and healthy nails are often associated with adequate collagen levels. By supporting the structure of hair follicles and nail beds, collagen can enhance hair thickness and nail strength.
  3. Wound Healing: Collagen is involved in the body’s wound-healing process, helping to repair and regenerate damaged skin tissue. Incorporating collagen into skincare routines may accelerate recovery from wounds, cuts, and abrasions.

Health Benefits of Collagen:

  1. Joint Support: Collagen is a key component of cartilage, the tissue that cushions joints and provides flexibility. Supplementing with collagen peptides may alleviate joint pain, improve mobility, and protect against age-related joint disorders such as osteoarthritis.
  2. Bone Strength: As we age, bone density decreases, leading to an increased risk of fractures and osteoporosis. Collagen supplementation has been shown to enhance bone density and strength, reducing the likelihood of fractures and promoting overall skeletal health.
  3. Gut Health: The gut lining consists primarily of collagen, which helps maintain intestinal integrity and barrier function. Incorporating collagen into the diet may support digestive health, reduce inflammation, and alleviate symptoms of conditions like leaky gut syndrome and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)

Choosing the Right Collagen: When considering collagen supplementation, choose high-quality products derived from sustainable sources. I highly recommend the one I am using – it is liquid, taken as a shot tastes great, and is very affordable. Vitamin & mineral-rich, natural products. Gluten-free and formulated with the highest quality hydrolysed collagen. Learn more about it here

Conclusion:

I consider it a necessary addition to my diet and if it helps me have better skin, hair, nails, joints, bones, and gut health, it is worth it. Harnessing the power of collagen can contribute to a more vibrant, youthful appearance and improved overall well-being. Then why not embrace collagen as a staple in your beauty and wellness routine, and unlock its transformative potential for a healthier, more radiant you?

Until next time

Advantages of an online income

Advantages of an online income

What are the advantages of having an online income?

It is different for everyone – for me, it is the option of traveling to various locations and being on the move.   For many of you, it might just be having an extra stream of income coming into the family budget.    Or maybe you are dreaming of your own online business.  So many people are fed up with the corporate grind, but are stuck – there is another way, it takes time.  It might mean learning a new skill. 

The key is to start planning for it now, don’t wait until you are ready to leave or worse you are laid off.  Get started now, do some research, explore options and things that might be possible, and spend a couple of hours a week, in the areas you need to brush upon.

We all have time to do this, think about the time you spend, scrolling through Facebook. 

If you don’t find a way to make money while you sleep, you will work until you die. – Warren Buffet

Whatever you decide to do, the idea is to start and find something that suits you. Set it up, so you have the choice, freedom, and option to work from anywhere.  

The local coffee shop while you enjoy a weekend away in an idyllic location.  It is a great way to get some work done with no distractions and still enjoy a lovely time away, or it could be a 3 month-long trip to Europe

I love my online business and am grateful I can operate my business wherever I choose. – Learn more about what I do – by checking out my website

Good luck with the research and I hope you find something that allows you to have the freedom that I have.

Until next time

Changing Companies Again!!

Changing Companies Again!!

Hi everyone

I wanted to share what made me get started in a new company again, as I have changed companies often. So here goes.

Background

After walking out on my narcissistic partner, almost 2 years ago, I had to completely start again. I went into my own cleaning business as a way to pay the bills however I knew it was never going to be more than a job, and it was very hard on my body. I started to get back pain and realised, I had to get serious about creating an income that didn’t impact my health.

I have been in direct selling for most of my life and having left the industry for a while, I decided to join a direct selling company that I thought was going to be a way for me to eventually buy my own home. I want to have my own independence, as living with my parents, has challenges, and someone in their 60’s, shouldn’t be living with their parents. However, I found as a year went by I could no longer promote that company, the products were great, but just a few things that did not align with me. It was too hard for customers to buy and a confusing career plan, just to name a couple.

Financial Problems

Last year was a very challenging year as I wrote off my car in August, and due to finance on my car, it left me with just 4K to buy another car, so I bought my van – which was great for my month-long trip to Victoria but is not suitable for driving each day, as it is old and hard on fuel. This was so, frustrating, as I didn’t have a consistent income to get a loan for another car and I have been driving Mum & Dad’s car, which I don’t enjoy. I am grateful I have it, but I am also aware if something happens to it, it leaves them without a car.

Return to Party Plan

I decided to change it up and joined a party plan company in homewares, which I had loved in the past and only left due to my toxic ex-partner and his manipulation. I was just starting to get this going, earlier this year, when a past colleague from my Bodyshop days, shared that a new company in the wellness, skincare, and makeup space was launching in Australia. I checked it out purely as a sticky beak and was instantly hooked. I loved everything about what I saw.

My New Company

I joined straight away as so many things aligned with me from the get-go. Products everyone needs and wants. Affordable prices. A free VIP program, which makes it easy for customers to shop and save money. A career plan that is simple to follow, with no breakaways where you lose income, and most importantly one that I can align my values with and passionately share. I just knew I could help so many people, start a business from home, with no barriers to get started, with free joining options.

Products

Products are so important in any business, as without good products we don’t have a business and after using the products for a month, am in love with everything I try,

We have products that are clinically proven products with patented technology across 5 ranges. Wellness, Skincare, Make-up, Body & Hair. Products are affordable, exclusive to us, high quality and they work. Learn more about products here

I have team members and customers loving the products too. They are seeing results on the weight loss products, and have had customers already upgrade to become a consultant, as they can see the income opportunity we have here.

Hard decision

It was not easy leaving my homewares business, as I thought, what are people going to think, Here she goes again, changing companies again. I could easily have stayed put, for that reason, but I knew deep in my soul, that for me to have any chance of earning a consistent income, and the chance to buy my own home in a couple of years. I had to find a company that had consumable products, that people loved and used every day, A global business that was expanding and most importantly of all. I had to be fully aligned with every aspect of the business. I am happy to say my new business ticks all those boxes and more.

The future

I am not going anywhere, and I am planning on building a team and a large customer base in the coming months & years. I have products that not only help my well-being & health but people I care about and the people I meet who either join my team or become one of my customers

Changing companies is hard but I refuse to stay in the same place when I know, I can’t promote it anymore, and I am no longer aligned with it. After all, the opinions of others won’t pay my bills or help me have the life I want. I’m here for the long haul, committed to a path that resonates with my soul and promises a future filled with purpose and prosperity.

Thanks for taking the time to read my story

Until next time

“Running a Business While Traveling: Essential Tips for Success”

Running a business while traveling can be an exciting and rewarding experience, but it can also be challenging. Here are some tips for managing your business while on the go:

  1. Use Cloud-Based Services: Cloud-based services like Google Drive, Dropbox, Boards, and Trello can help you keep track of your work while you’re on the move. You can access your files, notes, and tasks from anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection. I use all of these and highly recommend them.
  2. Plan Ahead: Before you leave for your trip, make sure you have a plan in place for how you’ll manage your business while you’re away. Set up automatic email responses, delegate tasks to your team members, and create a schedule for when you’ll check in on your work.
  3. Stay Connected: Stay connected with your team and clients using video conferencing tools like Zoom or Skype. This will allow you to have virtual meetings and check-ins while you’re away.
  4. Use Social Media: Use social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn to keep in touch with your clients and customers. You can use these platforms to post updates about your business and interact with your followers.
  5. Have a Reliable Internet Connection: A reliable internet connection is essential when running a business while traveling. Make sure you research your destination beforehand to ensure you have access to reliable internet service.
  6. Use a Virtual Assistant: Consider hiring a virtual assistant to help you manage your business while you’re away. They can help with tasks like responding to emails, managing your schedule, and booking travel arrangements.
  7. Prioritize Your Work: When you’re traveling, it’s easy to get distracted by all the new sights and experiences. Make sure you prioritize your work and set aside time each day to focus on your business.
  8. Stay Organized: Being organized is key when running a business while traveling. Keep track of your schedule, expenses, and important documents using tools like Evernote or Trello.
  9. Take Time for Yourself: Finally, don’t forget to take time for yourself. Traveling can be stressful, and it’s important to take breaks and recharge your batteries. Take time to explore your surroundings, try new things, and enjoy your trip.

Running a business while traveling can be challenging, but with the right tools and mindset, it can also be a rewarding experience. Follow these tips to help you manage your business while on the move.

Until next time
