First off, I want to say how excited I am about starting my journey with Agnes & Dora! This company is constantly amazing me.  Between them always coming out with the most beautiful styles and prints, to the reason why the company was started and the vision of the founder, Buffy.  As my group is growing, I wanted to share a little bit about myself and my WHY, the reason I wanted to become a rep. 


After working in a corporate setting for eight years, in 2010 I started experiencing some health issues that eventually caused me to have to leave my job.  I had just been promoted and was working in the accounting department and I really enjoyed it, not to mention it was a wonderful opportunity to expand my knowledge and to grow career wise. 


To make a long story short regarding the health issues, I have a chronic dizziness problem.  Which as of now, seven years in, no one has been able to find the cause of the issue.  I am dizzy on a daily basis, which made it impossible for me to continue working as I was.  The dizziness led to anxiety, which is another debilitating condition for me.  I moved in with my parents, and am SO lucky to have their support.  They have been incredibly helpful and I can’t imagine going through this without them.


Onto my reason for joining A&D!  After 7 years of not working, I was SO incredibly restless.  I needed something to occupy my mind, my time and give me a little income.  I signed up to be a consultant with another direct sale clothing company, but the minute I signed up I felt an overwhelming anxiety about it.  I happened to stumble across Agnes & Dora in my research on the other company.  I found an amazing referring rep, who is KILLING it in this business, talked with her for a bit, ordered a couple pieces of the clothing and I was sold.  I felt so good in the clothes, they were comfortable but at the same time made me feel confident! There was no anxiety about it, just excitement!  


My why originally was just to have something to keep me busy, have a purpose and a reason to get up and be excited about my day.  But over the last couple months, my why has changed a bit.  I am now SO excited to make other women feel amazing in these clothes, the confidence that I see and hear from women who wear A&D is so inspiring. 


Thank you so much for being on this journey with me!!!
