Wow, it’s been a long and confusing journey since I lost my job in the Marketing Department for the university I used to work for. After a little over 2 years at home with my son I finally feel like the cards are falling in to place. I struggled through 2015 to finish my MBA, moving four times, building a house, trying to figure out what I wanted to be when I grew up. Then in 2016 I I found a rhythm working part time on the weekends in retail at my “fun” job to get a little face time with other women and ADULTS! I also gave birth to our second son, became a personal trainer, and started teaching SkyFit at SkyZone. Things were falling in to place and I felt like I was finally starting to live out my true passions, fitness and fashion. And then……
I watched a video on YouTube and everything changed. I saw a video by my girl Dorothy Booth about Agnes & Dora, a small, growing clothing company. I started researching all things Agnes & Dora and fell in love with their styles. I found a few pieces that I wanted to order to see if I would actually like the fabrics and fit. Much to my surprise I fell head over heels. Styles I never dreamt would look good on me made me feel amazing. I put myself in the Agnes & Dora queue two days later. But here was the problem.
I had to WAIT a VERY long time to get in. The CEO and founder Buffy Bandley was taking a proactive approach to building her company. She didn’t want to grow too fast and not have control. So for about 3 1/2 months I waited, patiently at first and very impatiently for the two weeks before I actually received my email. When I got the ding my excitement was through the roof. THIS was something I was going to be good at, THIS is something I was going to OWN and literally rock the shit out of. I know clothes, I know fashion.
With Agnes & Dora I have found myself again. Being a mother is amazing but for a long time I struggled with the fact that I was home, not using the skills and knowledge I had received while attaining my MBA. When I became a personal trainer I knew I could help people but coordinating times was difficult and I didn’t want to sacrifice my time with my family in the evenings when most people could train with me. So when SkyZone called me I jumped at the chance to use my knowledge in fitness to help others. Now I can pour myself in to my Agnes & Dora business to help women create awesome outfits, take chances, step out of their comfort zones, and feel even more beautiful.
