Where in the world is Irene?
Finally, I’m back home! After a whirlwind January, which I put no pressure on myself when it came to The OP Life, I’m back home. Where was I? I was traveling to three shows helping Honestly Margo grow.
A few highlights…
For those of you new to The OP Life, I’m the “momager” and CO-CEO of this young budding bath and beauty brand. So lemme just briefly tell you the story…
5 years ago I had an 11-year-old daughter (and an 8-year-old son), who was driven. Driven actually from younger than that. But she created a product in my kitchen, and from there, she sold it to her friends, and from there, her eyes opened up to the possibilities to “what-if”. And with my help, she took it to another level, and then another level, and then another. And almost 5 years later, she (we) has (have) a full-blown bath and beauty company, with multiple lines, and now in over 1,000 stores coast to coast, she’s venturing into things, experiences, growth she didn’t ever think could happen…. Until I encouraged her really believe that those dreams can be a reality.
So what happened along the way?
We had a tv show….
She wrote a book…
One of her dreams became a reality…
And now her business is taken to new heights. More to come on that…
So back to dreaming big and possibilities and why do we even go there? Yes I know it’s SO cliche! So why even go there? Well… for one, why NOT? What do we have to lose? So then, watch my little video.
While this is her business, it’s also my business. We’re CO-CEOs. We’re mother-daughter and as unusual as it seems, business partners and besties. And part of what is happening is a shift in where my priorities lie. Honestly Margo commands more of my attention now. That’s not to say that The OP Life is ending. But simply put, it won’t get as much of my focus as it once did. It’s a very natural and organic shift and progression in my life and businesses. And truly, I couldn’t be happier. I’m following MY purpose in this phase of my life.
I still will try to do as many #FuzzyFriday posts as I can, and I still have a passion for fashion! I still love to cook and do my best to live as healthy as I can want to share all of that with you. Beauty? It will always be one of my number 1’s… Decor? YES! Nothing will change about The OP Life other than the frequency of my postings here.
Want to engage with me more? Connect with me in my private Lounge! I have a VIP group. (which is where I shared that video LIVE, by the way. One of the many perks of being there is great LIVE tips I share) The OP Lounge is a women’s lifestyle empowerment lounge I created to help you design YOUR best life, a life On Purpose to YOU.
So here’s what I want you to do.
- FOLLOW Honestly Margo both HERE and HERE. It’s really an amazing story, and amazing journey, and franky (yes I’m biased!) amazing products. We actually have stores that placed orders in our first show in January ALREADY placing RE-ORDERS! What does that say about how awesome her stuff is!?
- Continue to follow me not only on my blog but HERE and HERE as well.
- Want to join my VIP Lounge? It’s free. Join us HERE.
So there you go! That’s where I’ve been and where I’ll be for a while. I’m so excited for this next phase of my life and I hope to continue to bring to you any nuggets of knowledge and wisdom I have along the way to pass it on to you to enrich your life.
By the way, cocktails are back on the way this Friday. Who doesn’t love that!
