Direct Sales and MLM – The Good, the Bad, and the Myths

Dispelling MLM and Direct Sales Myths We all have that friend or family member who joined an Multi-Level Marketing (MLM) or Direct Sales company in the hopes of hitting the big time and going on a company paid vacation or cruise. Maybe even getting a car. We’ve seen these opportunities presented as get-rich-quick businesses and we’re tired of it. I know I was. I said over and over again I’d never participate in a company with this kind of structure.

Then I signed up for doTERRA essential oils, loved them, and started to sell them.

So what changed my mind?

Education and meeting people who do it right.

2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid – Luxury Defined

2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited Review
Say it with me: 2015 Toyota Avalon Hybrid Limited. That’s the one you want. That’s the car I didn’t want to give back. You see, I’ve had a love-hate relationship with anything smaller than a mid-size SUV since gas prices went up. I bought my first sedan when I was 20 and I’ve been stuck with one since. They get great gas mileage and for that, I love them. But, they’re not what I gravitate towards.

The 2015 Toyota Avalon changed that. I’d buy one of these, the Hybrid in the Limited edition mind you, tomorrow, if I were shopping for a sedan. Why? [Read more…]

2015 Lexus RX Hybrid

2015 Lexus RX Hybrid Review
The 2015 Lexus RX Hybrid introduced me to upscale hybrid crossovers. I’ve driven a few crossovers, but nothing you’d expect to be high-class, and certainly none that were hybrids. Heck, I’ve only driven a few hybrid sedans. I was expecting to fall in love with the luxury the Lexus brand is known for, and disappointed with the hybrid engine.

The opposite was true.

The Lexus RX wasn’t as high-end as I’d expected. The hybrid engine left nothing wanting. There was plenty of power and it was actually really fun to drive. This is coming from a girl who loves V8 engines and grew up driving large trucks, vans and SUVs.

Get all the details and photos from my 2015 Lexus RX Experience!

I reviewed this hybrid crossover for She Buys Cars and you can hop on over there for all the details, including why my awkward moment where I reveal that this review was hard to write.

Fun at the #TNTFtWorth Tech and Travel Roadshow & the Dallas Auto Show

TNTFtWorth You all know I was excited about the Tech and Travel Roadshow and getting to attend the Dallas Auto Show. Well, it was an amazing two days and I had fun. I drove a Camero. See? Fun.

Tech and Travel Roadshow Event

If you’re a blogger and you love technology and travel, you need to make it out to one of these events hosted by Techcilicious and Traveling Mom. Besides for a brief presentation and getting to meet-up with local bloggers in your niche, it’s a great opportunity to connect with companies in your niche in an intimate setting. I really enjoyed the luncheon and getting to talk to some of the event sponsors.

#TNTFtWorth Sponsors

It would be really hard for me to pick a favorite of all the sponsors. Everyone was just so friendly and open to talking and I learned some really cool things and came home with some fun prizes!

Chevy Fleet for the Ride and Drive

Chevy Ok, It’s hard to go wrong with a car company for the main event sponsor!! They not only sponsored the event and paid their ambassadors, but they arranged a plant tour at one of their most impressive plants, showed up with vehicles from their 2015 line for us to drive to and from the event, then take out for drives afterwards. Their reps also had lunch with us and we got to talk about some of the new technologies in the 2015 line of vehicles. I love that Chevy gets social media and I’m thrilled to have been a Chevy Ambassador this week!
