NOTABLE QUOTES "Haven't you ever heard of the healing power of laughter?" (as said by Jack Napier/The Joker in the movie "Batman," with Jack Nicholson as the Joker) Nostalgia Quiz Answers (1. a; 2. b; 3. c; 4. c; 5. a)  VJ of lnspiration I had the distinct opportunity to travel to Milwaukee recently for our annual lia sophia conference 'where more than 4,000 advisors and managers from across the country gathered to learn more about our company and each other. It was an incredible event, not only were we treated to some impressive speakers like Clinton Kelly from the show "What Not To Wear," but we were given the chance to spend time with unbelievable people who work their own businesses as lie sophia representatives. We heard amazing stories from advisors whose lives have been changed because of the opportunity they were given to reach for their highest dreams and accomplish them. It was a weekend filled with inspiration and understanding, topped off with good times and laughter. lie sophia has branched into Canada and will soon move into Europe. The company was mentioned more than three billion times last year in the media and we are currently the number one direct marketing jewelry company in the country. Every time I speak to one of the customer service representatives, I tell them how proud I am to work for a company that treats their customers, hostesses and advisors so well. This business has changed my life in so many positive ways and I couldn't be more proud to be a unit manager for lie sophia. I started my business shortly after we closed our restaurant a few years ago. It was a difficult time for my husband and I, not only because of the deep debt we found ourselves in but because we had to let go of something we worked so hard to create. My lie sophia business was such a blessing during that time because with every party I went to and every hostess who booked a party, I found inspiration and hope. The struggles continued with illness in our family, my big brother and father- in-law's cancer diagnosis and my Auntie Erma's sudden infection which led her to spend several days in the ICU. She is currently staying at Altru Hospital's Rehabilitation center. Having them allon the mend is such a blessing, miracles from heaven thanks to the many prayers sent up for them. Through it all, my lia sophia family was there for me, ready to fill me up with encouragement and quick to pray when prayers were needed. Some of my dearest friends are those I have met through my business and I can't thank them enough for the love and light they bring into my life. In addition to the many experiences my husband and I have been able to encounter because of lia sophia, like the all expense paid trips to Palm Springs, Cancun and Las Vegas, we were given something we never thought we would have again after our restaurant closed - the ability to hope and dream. For a while, all hope was lost. Overwhelmed with more debt than we ever thought we could pay back, there were times we didn't know how we would make it another day. I was given a new start from my business and it has been one of the best decisions I ever made in my life. I am my own boss; it is up to me how far I want to go. We have been able to keep up with seven separate payments we are making each month from the restaurant and there is a light at the end of the tunnel as we are close to paying off one of them. This would have never been possible without lia sophia. We never filed for bankruptcy because we didn't want to hurt the people who helped us start and so we continue to work toward paying off our debt. I remain steadfast in the philosophy that dreams can come true and one day, we will be debt flee. During our stay in Milwaukee, I heard the story of a woman who lost her father. She went into deep depression and was unable to pay bills or function at all. A twist of fate led her to lia sophia and just when they were about to lose their home, everything turned around for her. She continues to build her business and has found strength through the little coincidences she is sure her father is leading her to. One of my dear friends Karen who is also alia sophia manager, began her business because her 5-year-old son was diagnosedwithleukemia. She had twins at home and with all the treatments her son was undergoing there was no way for her to hold a fulltime job. She started lia Member FDIC sophia and was able to earn more working part time then she was full time at her regular job. She had time for her children and especially for her son who was struggling through intense treatments. She is an inspiration and the best news is her son is in remission now and doing well. So many incredible stories of people going through the most devastating circumstances life can offer up and yet finding hope because one person believed in them. It certainly is a testament of what a single kind soul can do for another despite the struggles that exist. Sometimes along the way, we are given glimpses of beauty, integrity, courage, strength and hope. In those moments when we don't think we can make it through another day, someone or something comes along and changes the solemn direction of our mind's discouragement. I truly believe divine intervention acts on our behalf with each passing day. There are so many stories of miracles occurring simply because someone believed. I am grateful for the experiences I have been given in my lifetime and feel blessed for the miracles which continue to give me strength, encouragement and support as the days pass into months and months into years. This year at conference as we gathered into the large stadium, I walked passed the stands onto the main floor where I found my spot next to the woman who gave me the opportunity to hope again, Terri Horpedahl. As they announced the winners of the Ruby award, I stood to make my way across the stage. When my walk was finished, with tears in my eyes, I found Terri and gave her a huge hug; after all, she believed in me and thus helped me believe in myself again. My main goal now is to help others do the same. As you go about your daily routines, remember you can make a difference in someone's life. One simple word of encouragement, a compassionate smile, a kind gesture, or a persistent belief in another human soul can be the jewel of inspiration to someone who never knew the extent of the greatness they could possibly achieve. Keep Some Money In Reserve Some things happen unexpectedly. The transmission goes out on your car, your air conditioner quits working, you get laid off from your job, or you have unexpected medical expenses. In times like these, it's nice to have some money 9el aside for an emergency. We recommend keeping three to six months earnings in a Savings or Money Market Account.
