My Inspiration for Today

Reading over my list of all the things I need to do today: practice karate (blue belts) with warrior princesses, work on a few lessons with warrior princesses, fill Smell Goods' orders, touch base with business contacts, visit my online networks, exercise, etc. The Smell Goods' line rang, and a customer who placed an online order yesterday was on the other end. A new customer who found Smell Goods on Michael Baisden's MingleCity. So I decided to visit the boards to view how many other "black" Bath & Body retailers posted their information. I was curious because this isn't the first customer over the course of two weeks that found Smell Goods on those boards.

So getting to my inspiration. While on the boards I decided to visit These sistas are truly an inspiration. Smell Goods '98™ is coming ladies!

Smell Goods '98 Lives Up to Its Name

I (Smell Goods) was given a glowing blog entry today on SisterSpeak Online's Beauty Suite! By the lovely Lisa Peyton-Caire, Founder & Editor-In-Chief of SisterSpeak Online Magazine, and the Founder of The SisterCircle Network. More beautiful news! Lisa was featured on Clutch Magazine today!

Lisa and I have a computer connection. We always seem to bump into each other on the various online networks for professional women. Although we have never met in person, we have much in common: wife, mother, home-schooling, advocates for women, advocates for our teens, professionals, and all things beauty.

Take a moment today to stop by SisterSpeak Online Magazine, join me on The SisterCircle Network, and get a sense of Lisa's warmth and strength while reading her interview.
