Since I was a kid, I ALWAYS wanted to own my own business. My brain has ALWAYS been business-geared, I don’t know why, it just has been. Since I graduated college, I’ve been trying to find something that fit for me. I’m creative, so I tried doing art, crocheting, & making jewelry to sell…but it was too time-consuming. I tried selling jewelry through a different direct-sales company. It was cute stuff…but again, at that point in my life I was teaching…which, if you know someone who is a teacher you know THAT is too time-consuming, too. Plus…I don’t wear a ton of jewelry, so not only did it not fit my schedule, it also didn’t fit my personality.
Since I’ve started my new job, though, I have found I have a lot more time on my hands. I’ve been able to spend more time with God, my family, catching up on things I was behind on…and now it is giving me the opportunity to live out my dream.
With all the time I had, I thought, “hey, why not increase my income-opportunities by selling through another company?” But I was nervous. I really didn’t want to just jump into something. Whatever company I joined, I wanted it to be God’s will, I wanted it to work for me, fit my personality, & match my goals. There are a lot of different popular companies out there and I thought about each one. Again, with each of them, they just didn’t fit- I already have too many clothes, I don’t really wear make-up, I don’t need anymore bags, I definitely don’t need anymore jewelry…so what could I do? I also didn’t want to join a company that had already saturated the market. And most importantly, I wanted to join a company that would give me the freedom & flexibility to live out my faith through what I was doing, too.
Over the past year or two, my faith has become something incredibly dear to me. I feel like over the past year or two, God has been working on my heart & He has been making Himself so clear & real to me…even though I can’t see Him. So whatever I joined, I wanted HIM to be the center of what I was doing- glorifying God & serving others for His glory at the same time.
Then, a thought came into my head. I had previously heard about a little company called Mary & Martha. I knew they were a Christian company so I started looking into them. I found that their product matches my personality & style 100%, but more than that, a lot of what they produce points to God for His glory & is for the purpose of building people up. The people that I have already met & the things I have seen & read, in just the 3 days since I have joined have so filled me with God-glorifying encouragement…and that is what I have wanted in a company that I work for. That it’s not about me, it’s not about making money, but it’s about God and others. Another thing that sold me on them- they have an option where you can add $1 or more to your order & it goes to donate Bibles to children around the world through the organization Compassion International. I LOVE that! Other smaller things that sold me- it wasn’t crazily expensive to buy into which ultimately makes it easier to make a profit, EVERYONE can use the products they have to offer, and the market isn’t saturated with people selling their line.
Take a look into it yourself. Look through the online catalog, make your Christmas gift or wish list, get a gift for someone you know is getting married or moving into their own place for the first time. Host a party & earn free items for your own home, or…if you’re looking for the opportunity to make a little extra income, this might be the perfect thing for you!

Overall, I am excited for this opportunity & I am excited to see where God will lead me & how God may use me through this.
Be blessed, friends!
