I Reside in NJ with two sons and husband. The Youngest of 5 siblings and by far the most intelligent. ha ha. I like to try and see the fun and funny side of things. Being the only woman in the house , this is an absolute must to keep any level of sanity. I love my home and family. On the flip side, meeting new people and discovering what lies in their hearts' is fascinating to me.

Do you have a support system?

This blog is intended for everyone.  Not just direct sales people because truly everyone needs a support system in life.  Do you agree?  Please feel free to comment if you agree or not.  Everyone's feelings about this are important to me.

  Do you feel you can take on the world on your own? Handle a business all alone?  Care for your children without help?  Pay the bills on a solo income?  Face personal issues without a shoulder?

If you are a super human and can do all of these, or any of these without a support system, I want to meet you.  I want you to show me how you do it, and in return, show you how I tried. 

Guess what I learned? 
You need a support system!

You need your friends
Your family
Your Teammates/coworkers
New acquaintainces
Networking buddies

Why do you need them?
Because they need you too.

Think about a telephone connection, or someone you serviced through your business, a family member or friend who expresses happiness when they are in your presence.  Think about how they bring joy to you with a phone call, meeting or joke (sometimes they may not even realize how they have lifted you from a bad day or time and vice versa).

Now think of how you feel when you have that happen.
Do you feel happy?
Does it build your confidence?
Does it make the day ahead seem more hopeful?
Do you want to connect with that person again?

I really want to hear from you.


  1. I totally feel a support system in
    very much needed esp. Now days as times and things can change so fast you know. Iuse to think of myself as supr woman and learned prtty fast tht Nope i am Not! No on is (life) we all need a support groups or person we can turn to when we need a hug or just a darn " you can do it girl- I believe in you" It hurts when the opisite happens and it i sad- thinking of a word here but sad will do to know your alone at least for that one days - know what I mean?

  2. ExpoLady,
    I understand wholeheartedly. Been there and I truly feel it is a full circle thing. Something I have learned over the years of building and being a support system is there are just some people who don't get it. It's all about them and what they want at the moment. I made a vow a long time ago to never kick someone when they are down. Who knows, maybe that was part of my inspiration for this particular article. In any case, thanks for finding value in it enough to comment. Hope you come back often :)
