Thirteen years ago after being laid off from work as an accountant I decided it was the perfect time to go back to school so I could have a career in something that I love. I have always loved taking care of my skin and educating others about their skin care. It makes me happy to help others take care of themselves. I went to school to become an Esthetician and was licensed in 2007. I was ready to start my own business as an Esthetician. Unfortunately, the Great Crash of 2008 happened. I was a single parent and the sole responsibility of taking care of my daughter was mine. I needed immediate income so I could provide for my family and starting a business just wasn’t in the cards. My dreams of helping people take care of their skin were crushed and the business was put on hold. I went back to accounting because that’s what pays the bills.
After being out of work on a medical disability I was laid off again in 2016. It was Christmas time and I didn’t have much money to buy presents so I decided I was going to make them. After some research on Pinterest and coming to realize that I could work on my dream of helping people take care of their skin I decided to make soap, bath bombs and lotions. Just Mix It was created to provide products that were pure and natural and would promote health benefits. I was so happy and had so much fun learning about ingredients and products I would stay up all night hand making them. Just Mix It was doing markets and working on getting products in stores and creating an online presence, but “life” happened and I had to put the business on hold again.
3 years later I found myself out of work yet again. During my unemployment I realized I had put so much work in to my dreams of helping people but hadn’t yet reached them. I regrouped and started looking at how I was going to reach my goals once and for all. After a lot of reflection on my life, the ups and downs, the hurdles, and my accomplishments I came up with the name Mixed Essentials, ME! The new business name couldn’t be more perfect.
Everyone one of us gets caught up in the daily rat race of life. Maybe you are a single parent or a stay at home parent who never has enough time for themselves. Maybe you are a working parent who is constantly on the go. Maybe you’re not a parent at all. Maybe you are just trying to conquer the world. Either way, ME! represents the journey I went through to find ME! and after 20 years of self-neglect I was time to start taking care of ME! I am now putting ME! first and ME! wants everyone to be able to take time for themselves. My business motto is “I’m Taking Care of ME!. We want to shout to the world It’s Time to Take Care of ME! After all, taking care of YOU enables you to take better care of others. Whether you take a couple of seconds to apply a soothing lip balm or put on a moisturizing lotion for your skin, or even take 30 minutes in a bath with a relaxing bath bomb, make your motto I’m Taking Care of ME! a priority.
