Well 2012 sure threw me for a loop. After taking over a cleaning company to expand my business last March I lost control of this part of it. Never a good thing but sometimes happens. I had moved homes, given up my office, and a whole list of other things to make it more complicated. Well it's time to wipe the slate clean and make this year bigger and better. My personal blog lists my personal intentions of which includes being better organized and blog weekly. I hope to keep up with that on all three of my blogs. Along with that for this site I will be re-evaluating products and services as well as revamping the website so look for some fun changes and upgrades. I want your input! What would be helpful to you? What would you like to see? Do you want recipes Do you want info on health issues or clean living? Do you need inspiration? Business tips? Finance? Let me know I am here for you! Good things are coming I can feel it. Do you?

Summer time has flown in. School is out and our new ventures are keeping us busy but we want to bring back the basics. This month we are bringing back soap making classes and other favorites you love. It seems that this year brings big change after big change. For a person that does not handle change well this has been a challenge however this years changes all seem to be moving business and personal life in the right directions. We will soon be in our office ALONE! I know scary yet good. This allows for growth and more of what you want. In progress a full class schedule and an aromatherapy room plus so much more. Down N Dirty or cleaning division is in full swing and we are pleased to be offering all natural aromatherapy cleaners hand blended just for you!
With all the change we don't want to forget you our friends, customer's and clients so please tell us what else would you like to see from us?
April showers bring May flowers? I guess that's why I miss the whole month! No April showers. Well in my effort to help others live a more balanced life I took over a cleaning business, Down 'N' Dirty. Let me tell you, my life has been anything but balanced since doing so. The past 2 months have whooshed by and I have no idea what happened to it. I have focused so much on getting that running smoothly that I have neglected other parts of my business. Our car broke down so getting around has been a challenge but we are lucky to have great friends and wonderful landlords to help us out. I think, I hope to have it fixed this weekend, a whole month with out a car has been no good. On the other hand I have improved our families home life with all that extra time at home getting things done I had put off. So see unbalance. However life is good. Here in the desert it is in the 90's already but on the plus side we have tomatoes and peppers already and flowers blooming. Hummers at the feeders and shade from the trees :) With May fast approaching I realized I flubbed on paper work and upkeep so that is my May goal. Returning balance and getting on top of all that went wayside with my newest venture. Buy June everything should be smooth sailing. Here is hoping. I realize that blogging consistently may never be my strong point but keep your eye out I do chime in from time to time :)
Today I am preparing for the busy yet exciting schedule I have made myself in 2012. As I take time to reflect and plan, I think of all that must be done and get truely overwhelmed. Then I remind myself that I just need to focus on one task at a time and worry about the rest later. I have decided to give myself a worry time once a day between 8:30 and 9pm (bath time) and that is the time to worry otherwise I must say "worry about it later". During this time I must find a solution or forget about it until the next worry time. Worrying is a huge time waster but it must be done, only for some it is debilitating. I will not waist time in 2012! This is my first step in my preparations. The next is to set a schedule with deadlines. Even when just personal deadlines are good. We all react better if we start with an end in sight to measure our progress. Nobody like to feel as is they are just spinning there wheels on a daily basis. I am determined to blog here more and would like to here topics that interest you so please feel free to share. My goal is one a week and if I get more great! So the more you give me to talk about the better:) Well I am now off to my next task on my list (updating events). Have a great day everyone and HAPPY NEW YEAR!
So to date I have only been back in town 6 days and things are crazy hectic and oh so good! We are getting back on track and demolishing bumps in the road. With some time away and a lot of business evaluation we are ready to make waves. I do have a lot of hats to wear but I am devoted to making each project just as important as the next. I am excited to say I will be hosting several workshops and speaking engagements in the next few months all while making the products you have grown to love. Working on a holiday line and helping my children start their own line of Natural body products made for kids by kids look for it November 1st. Also on my list I am working on adding a shopping cart to the website, updating it (btw we have a new url www.naturallybalancednm.com), I will be releasing a book soon, working with my new accounts to promote business and filling my roll with Hot Pink Perspective as there Social Media Princess and film guru with AlamogordoLive.net.

I met the new owners of Bust Colorado last night. They are very kind and have a great mission that really speaks to my heart. They are aiming to provide local products made by local artist. With an a new Apothecary shop added to the unique home decor at affordable prices and a growing number of local plants I was in heaven! I am so excited to have met the and to announce I will be able sell my Natural Body Care line, hold workshops and meet clients in this wonderful setting right in the beautiful mountains of Colorado when I am in town.

Change can be exciting and overwhelming. We are headed for big changes in our office as we speak. Moving to a bigger space is exciting and frightening. More people are going to be in and out. More responsibility and more craziness in my Naturally Balanced world. I felt compleatly out of control of the situation. But at the same time I think it will add some more balance too. I have had to be strict on making myself understand my gut feelings verses my emotional feeling on this one as I was excited and yet still fighting the idea. So I meditated over this and listened to my body on the choices I had in front of me. On that note I have now adjusted evaluated and am completely EXCITED for the changes. I can't wait to share more later.
How do you deal with change?
The new office is really coming along! I can't wait to fully get it open but if you don't mind a little craziness then make an appointment or stop on by. We will be having an open house very soon and are excited about the things to come. We have a few display cases out stocked with product and the consultation area is almost finished. Also soon to come a meditation/aromatherapy room so keep watch. We have a small library of books and DVDs that is growing.
