Amanda was born and raised in MN, with 5 brothers and 1 sister. Growing up she always envisioned being a wife and mom as her “job”, but now that that has happened, there’s days that she wonders what. was. she. thinking. (Mom made it look so easy!) She also never saw herself living so far from home, but falling for a MT boy changed that. This fall will be 13 years living in MT, 12 of them in the beautiful Ruby Valley in the southwestern corner. Amanda is kept busy with 3 girls and 1 boy, an AgEd teacher/FFA advisor husband and an assortment of critters to (try to) keep in line.
While Amanda experiences waves of “natural, chemical free is the way to go” interspersed with “phooey, we all die so just use whatever”, she has come across some awesome products that have caused her to enter the networking world of sales. Talk about stepping outside your comfort zone! But when natural based hair products transform “eh” hair to “wow” hair without the chemical garbage; when improved gut health changes more than just bathroom visitation frequency, how could she not share it with everyone else?
Candace was born in Idaho, grew up in MN, moved to TX her senior year of HS. She then moved to AZ to live with, and care for her grandma. There she met her husband and they had their two little boys. Just a couple years ago they moved back to Texas and are loving life and adventures with their boys. Her husband is a nurse at one of the biggest hospitals in San Antonio and she runs their at home business, Sandon Engraving. When she’s not chasing kids or working she loves baking and reading.
Carmyn is a stay at home mom of three girls who teach her daily lessons of love, forgiveness, being present and that everything is figureoutable. She is married- not to the perfect guy, but the perfect guy for her! Loving all things crafty and combining her two grandmothers names she created HazyLu which specializes in broken jewelry to unique magnets for charms and hair accessories.
She also has the honor of teaching women life and business skills with her Mary Kay business working on her free car and promoting herself to leadership positions. She has learned that life is full of Joy when willing to help and like your own unique self, that the secret to life is butter, and all things are more fun when they’re shared.
Jessie is a stay at home mom to three girls and two boys. She is married to The Best Husband Ever, her best friend and adventure buddy. Jessie and Best Hubby Ever take great pleasure (not!) in moving often and have lived in 5 states and 11 towns in the 14+ years they’ve been married.
Jessie runs on caffeine, chocolate, and yoga pants. She loves dragging her kids out to the mountains for a hike and has been known to occasionally enter a 5k. Her favorite hobby is sewing her own clothes and her house is overflowing with fabric and patterns. She has learned a tremendous amount about quality fabrics and clothing construction through her sewing. Because of this, she partnered with Zyia Active and now sells high-quality activewear.
She currently goes to the School of Hard Knocks and learns from Professors Elbow-Grease and Reality. She holds degrees in Parenting Firsthand and DIY Medicine. Her philosophy is if there’s no blood or broken bones and the kids are still alive at the end of the day, she’s won at her job.
Richelle is a wife to a lineman and a stay/work -at-home mom to four energetic kids. A formerly elected town treasurer and bank teller, banking and balancing seem to be her area of experience even though in her former (pre-mom) life she received a degree in Paralegal Studies. Now, she is currently working on a BA in Housekeeping and a Master’s in Early (and Middle) Childhood Development. So you will find her cleaning, cooking, running after her kids, and doing laundry (SO. MUCH. LAUNDRY!).
In an effort to keep her favorite childhood tradition alive and always in search of books for her kids, she manages an Usborne Books and More business. Reading and being read to is one of her favorite evening activities. And yes, she loves to visit the places she reads about.
