“We all need somebody to lean on” #GoodNeighbor

Screen Shot 2014-08-20 at 12.30.27 AM

When I reflect back on life there are definitely people like family members and mentors that gave their time to help me in my personal and professional growth. There are others too that made a big impact, one of which was a professor in my first year of college. During that time I was more of a numbers person than a book person… I was always struggling with literature and falling farther and farther behind my friends and classmates. She told me that as long as I read something, anything, as long as I’m reading, it will help. This was long before the days of the internet but I found a group of books by a particular author that I gravitated towards. I told her about these and she went out of her way to not only grab those from the library, but also grab a bunch of books from similar authors. They were far from what she was teaching in class. I started reading through these like crazy, it really helped me! She would check up on me to see how things were going, and really went out of her normal duties to help me develop in an area where I was struggling.

This carried over into her other class material, I started raising my hand more in class and saw a total change in the way I carried myself. This was all from the confidence of learning more as I had built up my self-image, but it was also the feeling that the person in the school who is the expert in literature was always right there backing me and saw something in me. I was lucky to learn this at a young age and have used that knowledge even today. When taking other classes or more recently starting a new job or project, I like to get to know the expert behind something and knowing that I have their help to lean on. Even when I don’t use it, knowing that someone is there to help builds a very valuable confidence that carries me through. I don’t think I could have ventured into the internet business without this mindset, and knowing I’m not alone has been a big part of that. State Farm has the motto “Like a good neighbor State Farm is there.” When I relate this to my own experiences I see the importance of having someone there. Even if you don’t ever lean on them, it’s just good to know you aren’t going it alone in this world!

Balance Bar Review  #BalanceShapeUp 

Every time I take a break from Balance Bars I end up coming back! They have the great taste and such a diversity in flavors. If you try their chocolate flavors, peanut butter flavors or yogurt honey, each will have an ENTIRELY different taste. No chalky blandness here like in some of the others, it’s pure goodness. We are heading on a camping trip next week and I know that I will have a couple of Balance Bars set aside for those long hikes, and even for a meal replacement here and there. They are designed to give the perfect ratio of protein, carbs and healthy fats. Balance Bars can be found in just about any supermarket out there, and come at a great price. Balance Bar Minis have also launched for a smaller portion of the same goodness!

I love the size of regular sized Balance Bars so I haven’t had a need yet to try these out, but may be perfect for on the go or if you have a younger one in the family. Chocolate Mint Cookie Crunch is still my reining favorite, though Lemon Meringue is so good too (and completely unique from other brands of bars). Agree? Let me know your favorites!

Good2Grow Juice Review

Good2grow

 

My kids are enjoying juice time more than ever these days thanks to Good2Grow. You’ve probably seen them out there in stores, actually, you can’t miss them as they have these awesome characters on the top of the juice (what Good2Grow calls SippaTops™). My kids ran over to that section of the drink aisle, there was no doubt we were going home with a couple so it was just a matter of choosing the best ones. Since my son is all about Thomas the Train and my daughter is infatuated with Minnie Mouse it was a done deal. However, the next time they went the kids wanted new characters… we’ve been keeping the bottles and characters for reuse (good for the environment) and because they are so darn cute. These drinks are a great way to get my kids drinking juice and getting some good nutrients like vitamin C. Give these Good2Grow juices a try and watch your collection grow like ours.

My kids can hold the juice pouches/boxes really hard and squirt juice all over. So glad that the caps are supposed to be leak-proof and dishwasher safe..
