Follow our campaign!!!

Our mission is to help people build better lives for themselves. We want to see others find the success that they have been striving for but have been missing the right tools to get there.

So many people are unaware of the tools and information out in the world that would bring them leaps closer to realizing their dream. We at The Entrepreneur Lioness have a combination of coaching services and healthy products to take a persons’ life to the next level that they want to reach.

Everyone has dreams and aspirations, but not everyone knows where to look or what they need to do to reach their dreams. Our audience is largely made up of aspiring young adults but we also have many other followers who are younger and older. We create a positive environment that is meant to inspire and motivate anyone who we come across.

We learn about you and assist with determining what aspects in your life make you happy, aka your dream. From there we help breakdown an action plan that is personally suited to the individual, because we understand that success can be found going down many different paths. Using our tools and resources, we help people realize their path and walk down the path that best fits them. We also offer an incredible line of healthy products, through our relationship with Arbonne, that aid people in living a healthy lifestyle. From nutrition to skin care to makeup, we have all natural products that truly leave the user feeling refreshed and energized.

We are currently seeking funding to help kick start our mission. Right now The Entrepreneur Lioness is self funded and has a limited amount of resources and support. With every dollar that is generously provided, we will be able to reach a larger audience and spend more valuable time with individuals to help them build the successful life that every person deserves.

Currently, The Entrepreneur Lioness has two Community Leaders who are dedicated and passionate about helping others and about creating a positive environment where people can find their success. Each of the Community Leaders have a different background and knowledge-base that truly allows them to help others in every aspect of a person’s life.

We want to personally thank you for your support and if you have a moment to share our cause we would be truly grateful!

THE HOMELESS MAN

Today I did something that I haven’t done in many years. I gave money to a beggar on the side of the road. He had dirty clothes and a small, beat-up cardboard sign, like most of them do. He moved slowly, a weight clearly looming over him.

At first sight, I was inclined to do the thing I have done for so long now – divert the eyes, look distracted, maybe even lock the car doors.

But this time, I didn’t. This time, I felt something.

So I scrambled to get my wallet before the light turned green, found a single dollar, and reached out the window to hand it to him.

I felt sorry for not being able to give him more than just a dollar. I even apologized to him. His reaction was nothing except grateful. Genuinely grateful. He seemed to be in shock that I had even bothered at all.

I have had encounters with the homeless, the beggars, the panhandlers… throughout most of my life. I did not always grow up in wealthy areas and I saw poverty first-hand pretty frequently. There are usually mixed reactions to these people when we are forced to encounter them, but one stands out as the most prominent among society. The most frequent. Most people feel a sense of delinquency among them and an insincerity that makes them feel unworthy of trust. So what do we do? We look away and keep driving.

But today was different. Today, I remembered something.

We don’t know the whole story. We think we know so much, but in truth, we don’t have a clue. Some people really are just going through tough times. Some people really just need some hope.

During my time in Washington, there were many places throughout Seattle and even the small town I lived in where most of the panhandlers were scammers. They weren’t homeless. It was fraud. They made more money doing that than some friends I had who worked minimum wage. It discouraged me.

During my time in Florida and parts of California, it was clear that these street walkers were addicted to drugs. Homeless by fault of their own. Not exactly on par with my aptitude for sympathy.

Yet, after seeing this particular homeless man today, I was reminded that some people just fall down. Actually, all people eventually fall, in one way or another. Sometimes they are good people. Sometimes they are bad people. But they are people. Every single one.

I think of my grandmother at times like these. I think of mental health and mental illness and what leads a person to a life on the streets. My grandmother was schizophrenic. I never met her, but I have heard stories of her struggle. She disappeared when my mom was barely 18 and was never seen or heard from again. The sad and terrible truth that haunts us all is the fact that if she is not dead, she may be one of those people you see on the side of the road, holding a sign. Or in an alley, talking to a wall. Doing something we don’t understand. Doing something that scares us because of it.

Mental health is fragile and powerful and fickle. I know the plight well. Sometimes we forget that it’s different for everyone. Sometimes we see through selfish or judgmental eyes. Sometimes it doesn’t always make sense.

But at all times, we must remember our blessings and be thankful for mercy shown.

This homeless man I saw did not appear to be on drugs or drunk. He did not appear to be faking his misfortune. He did not give a vibe of desperation, but of intrigue. And then there was the sign. His cardboard sign. Small. Tattered. Meaningful.

It did not say the usual “HOMELESS, NEED HELP” or “NEED MONEY FOR FOOD” or other such phrases. It said something better.

“Need Hope.”

All you need is hope.

I have recently been battling some internal issues that haven’t resurfaced in several years. The truth is, I struggle with bipolar disorder. It has been generally manageable and under control for a long time now, but is the only constant in life is change and recent times have brought upon newfound external struggles, awakening my internal battles. Ultimately, however, I feel that energy expelled is energy gained, in one form or another. Instead of projecting bad energy and absorbing bad energy, it is important to recognize the influence of positivity, even in the smallest manner. Even in the form of a single dollar

I wish I could have done more for that man, and maybe one day I will see him again, but today he inspired me to be good again, despite the daunting thoughts and antagonistic encounters we inevitably face. I will not soon forget that.

Las Vegas is a great city, but the city can turn you hard. It can make you mean. It can break you. Anything can though, if you let it.

Seeing him sparked a change in perspective that I needed. I don’t know why he was so impactful, or if it was just fate in that moment and with that cardboard sign. Life moves in waves and today I am just rising with the tide.

Spread the good vibes, friends.

You never know who’s life you may be silently saving.

Remember –Today is beautiful and tomorrow can be better.

You Are What You Eat

Thoughts brought to you by your Community Leader, Jes!

Most people do not think about what makes up the products that they consume. We choose the easiest, cheapest options that work into our busy schedules. However, this option slowly wears down the body. We become more sluggish and moody, and eventually start making even more unhealthy decisions. I know this to be true because I have lived through it. Day by day my poor eating habits changed who I was fundamentally. I was too tired to do anything and looked for the easiest way out for everything. Eventually though I had, had enough!

An apple a day…

I quit the energy drinks and caffeine, all the sugar, and all the fake processed food. Within a month of this extreme 180 turnaround I had lost 20lbs and had more energy than I knew what to do with! I slept better at night. I was more alert and attentive during the day. My mood increased exponentially and I felt better than I had in years. All those McDonald burgers and late night Dairy Queen ice cream runs, and every single energy drink I consumed sat inside of me. Every cell in my body was being destroyed and consumed by all the processed food. But it is never too late to stop this cycle and cleanse your body.

Let me share with you how to do exactly that.

Now, everyone is different and has slight differences in dietary needs. But the general guideline that everyone should follow is simple.

Stop eating food that isn’t directly from the ground, bush, or animal. Organic fruits and vegetables are a must. And organic, zero growth hormone, lean cut meats will change your life. Think back to our ancestors. You didn’t see them eating a hotdog, did you? No. They ate nuts and berries, and meat when their hunters were successful. Our taste buds may love the extra salt and super sugary snacks, but our bodies crave the meats and veggies that give it fuel to stay strong and energized.

You are probably thinking, “Sure Jes, but where do I find the time and what do I even make myself with all this fresh produce?

Well, if you are looking for the time then you should take a look at your current schedule. Figure out where you are wasting time, eliminate the wasted time, and properly plan out your week! And if you need more than that then you should check out our article on getting organized.

To answer your second question, you have a plethora of sources that provide an unlimited amount of recipes! At first it might be hard to do this, and it will probably take some extra time to do everything. But that is how building any new habit starts! Then you slowly get into a rhythm and before you know it, it is second nature to make those meals that you once thought was going to be too hard or take too long. All it takes is you committing to make yourself a priority and then the rest will come with it. I believe in you and so should you!

Extra Tips & Tricks:

Bon Appetit!
  • DRINK MORE WATER (chances are, you’re dehydrated, not hungry)
  • TRY LOCALLY SOURCED ALL NATURAL HONEY (great for combating allergies and improving the immune system)
  • DON’T EAT FAST FOOD (we’ve said it before, we’ll say it again)
  • LIMIT YOUR SODA INTAKE (there’s absolutely nothing healthy about soda guys, cmon)
  • DON’T OVER DO IT (everything in moderation)

Build Better, BE Better!

Why Arbonne?

At EL, we are very concerned with self-care and nutrition. Because of our passion to provide others with the necessary resources and products to improve and/or maintain wellness, we have recently decided to partner up with Arbonne,

– a company that creates vegan, cruelty free, gluten-free, and botanically based products that promote quality, safety, value, and results.

Arbonne is a very “green” company, as they have not only gone carbon neutral, but are also active participants in the UN Global Compact – a congregation of corporations focused on building sustainable and socially responsible policies and practices.

The range of products Arbonne offers include a variety of cleansers, exfoliants, moisturizers, fragrances, makeup, sunscreens, nutritional supplements, detox packages, accessories, and even healthy snacks or beverages!

At EL, we strive to focus on three areas of life in order to reach our goals – physical wellness, mental health, and financial success. The reason we chose Arbonne is because they are dedicated to delivering products and opportunities that will improve people’s lives in all three of these facets.

Arbonne provides us with access to the products our bodies need – the products that are actually good for us. What you put on your skin and into your system matters, especially when you do it every day. Chemicals and toxins are easily absorbed, negatively affecting our health, even if we may not notice at first. It can be a slow kind of poison. But to poison the body is to poison the mind as well.

It’s time for a proper cleanse.

If you have any questions about the products available through Arbonne, please reach out to us! We would be more than happy to help! Our goal is to to educate and inform you about how we have personally improved our lives and well-being with Arbonne’s help. We love these products and we want to share them with everyone.

Over the course of the next several months, we will be posting frequent updates on Instagram and Facebook with our own personal testimonials about a variety of Arbonne products, because we want you to see what we see. We will be there to show you each step we take. This way, you can see the benefits and results up close and personal. Stay tuned!
