EAOC is a global collective of minority artisans who sell on Etsy.com, the leading online marketplace for buying and selling unique arts and crafts and, of course, you know I have a store on Etsy - lol
Anyway, today's post is in connection with the EAOC blogging event titled 'Coming Where I'm From' ...
Coming where I'm from - which was a household filled with one of the most entrepreneurial- minded people I know - my mother. She has been in every type of own-your-own-business venture there is - just to name a few -- Mary Kay, Amway, Avon, Scriptures - vitamins and lotion, Melaleuca, Pampered Chef, Herbal Life, YTB, Isagenix, Internet cell phone sales, Acia Berry Monavie, her very own business Elite Administrative Services and now her latest, My Organic Acres and YourNIGHT.com -and believe me there's plenty more - lol
Coming where I'm from - watching my mother work her charismatic magic with each of these businesses, and even reaching high sales with most, must have planted seeds in my brother and I who wore 'Loose Weight Now Ask Me How' buttons to school and passed out various business fliers to our friends on the regular - lol
Coming where I'm from - being surrounded by all types of products and observing my mother's 'one women show' and hearing her repeatedly say "Be your own boss" inevitably led me to start my own business ventures - currently, along with selling my own natural hair products - no doubt with the encouragement from my mother, I am also trying to break into the freelance writing business.
Coming where I'm from - Washington, DC the melting pot of all ethnicities reminds me of the EAOC culture due to the wonderful variety of products made by people from all over the globe. It's wonderful that these products can be found in one place - Etsy.com. So if you haven't checked it out before, be sure to do so. I'm sure you will find some one-of-a-kind treasures :o)
Again, coming where I'm from - going back to my mother's business ventures she would always have something extra - a giveaway of sorts for all her clients and potential clients. Following in her footsteps - for all those who have taken the time to read this post, I am doing another giveaway!!!!!

As usual, I will randomly pick a name from the comments and the winner will receive a sample -size set of my new Remedy Line from Bobeam Natural Hair Products, which will include a shampoo bar, conditioner and hair tea.
