So many of us forget what we have to offer. We get hung up in the 8-5 world and forget that there are OTHER ways to make money out there.


What are your skills?


Are you a good writer? BLOG

Are you a good singer? Enter a karaoke contest (ya never know)

Are you super organized? Start an organizing business on the side


It really is THAT simple!


I took my mad skills {I like to think they are mad skills} of marketing and PR and began working for a friend about 8 months ago. She has her own Mary Kay business {and not just ANY ol’ Mary Kay business}. This girl is AWESOME, y’all! Her name is Amy and she owns as well as She has taken her beauty consulting business to a whole new level. She thinks outside the box and has so many civic projects going on it’s crazy! She needed help keeping up with her social media and reached out to me about being her Social Media Manager. We met and discussed what she needed and what I could bring to the table. It was a PERFECT fit. But here’s the deal– when it came time to discuss money I decided to think outside the box. I offered to work for her FOR Mary Kay products! For me this is a HUGE win! I get all the skincare, beauty products and new fabulous looks for FREE! { I mean, I work for them, but you see my point}.


I say that to ask this–do you have a skill like that that you could use to work for YOU? Maybe you are in a place where you need to work for some type of trade? For me, this was PERFECT!!!


Just a thought–you have skills. We ALL do. No matter what they are don’t take them lightly. You are loved, valued, and deserve respect and appreciation. So do it–go out there and show the world your MAD SKILLS!


{also, check out Amy’s websites and see what you think! This girl does SO much for victims of domestic violence along with her beauty consulting business. She’s an awesome girl who has MAD skills and uses them to her advantage!}




For Now,
