"People are looking for a job --- or a second or third job"

Image
Isn't that a scary quote? As a kid, you get asked what you want to be when you grow up. Not, what three jobs do you want to do when you grow up just to keep your house? How many people do you know that are looking for a job right now? How many people do you know that have a job but are looking for a second, or even third job? I may sound greedy but I hold 6 job titles and one of them consist of jobs for 4 other people: Office Manager, Executive Assistant, Human Resources Manager and Operations Manager. If you wonder why my blog is called "One Busy Bee", well, there you go!

Blair Anthony Robertson is The Sacramento Bee's restaurant critic and posts Hot Italian will open a second location in Emeryville.

Hoopla 2012!

I am soooo there! A special training sales conference just for Stella & Dot Stylists. I can't wait to be there this July with my team and in the audience for the fashion show unveiling the new 2012 Fall Line. Not only is it cool to be part of that fun experience, we get some great training sessions by Team Leaders and Directors from all over the country, Canada and the UK.

I had to miss last year's event because my fiance just lost his job and with not knowing where we were going to be, I had to cancel my ticket. But I followed the #SDHOOPLA conversations on Twitter and I very much wished I could have been there. The fashion show online with pauses due to an internet connection is just not the same. This year, I will be going and cannot wait to do with my team members and take over San Francisco in STYLE!

How do you get there? Join my team as a Stylist for $199 and get $350 in free jewelry plus a business in a box where you start earning commission immediately. Sign up b…

FIGHT Breast Cancer!

If you have been following my blog for awhile, you would know that Breast Cancer is something that has personally affected my family and friends. My Auntie Gi is currently in remission. My cousin, Natalie N., was taken from us in 2010 and a friend's mother, Maureen W., passed last year. I wanted to get a head start on fundraising for Team Lagade for the June 16th event in Walnut Creek. Your tax-deductible donation would be greatly appreciated. Your funds will go towards the cost of mammograms for early detection, prevention programs, treatment and support services and to create awareness on how to minimize your chances of diagnosis. Besides eating the so-called magic fruit that fends off carcinogens, I suggest doing all you can to make a life style change and live healthy.

I have a personal fundraising goal of:
$3,900!!!
Currently raised:
$105

With every Tribute Bracelet ($36) and Vitality Necklace ($59) I sell thru my Stella & Dot website or your trunk show…
