The Cherish Bound Opportunity

Cherish Bound offers an amazing business opportunity for all consultants. The benefits of owning your own business from home are endless. Personal benefits, family benefits and practical benefits are just a few of the great rewards Cherish Bound consultants reap. The opportunity to teach families about traditions, memories and preserving their stories and photos is a blessing in its self. But going beyond the obvious, the business side of it all, gives me the strength I need everyday to wake up and be the best mom, wife, and business owner I can possibly be.

I personal have grown mentally, physically and spiritually since I started my business. I've improved many personal skills. For example my leadership abilities have been strengthened as I manage and train a very large team of successful consultants. And I'm learning to perfect my organizational skills along the way. I've learned the art of delegation and have realized I'm very capable of living two lives, one as a mommy and wife and the other as a professional business women. I personally have created friendships that will last a lifetime and have strengthened my family bonds. I love waking up and actually "getting ready" for the day....getting out of the sweats and into nice clothes, hair done, make-up on, and even shaved legs.

My Family has benefited from my Cherish Bound business as well. With mommy working from home, I'm allowed to be there for my kids everyday. I'm home when they get out of school, I can take them to the doctors, volunteer at their schools...and the list goes on. My children and husband have seen that I have skills and qualities that are important outside of family life. My children are involved in helping me with my business, from filing to message taking and helping with siblings.

The practical benefits of owning your own business are endless. Not only does it provide a "Second income", but the tax benefits are always a plus. My technology and life skills are constantly sharpened and put to good use. I continue with educating myself and keeping up to date on the latest trends and ideas in my industry. I have found that my home is kept tidy and clean when I host my own gatherings and you never know when a customer will need to "Drop by".

Cherish Bound allows everyone the opportunity to stay at home while growing a successful business. I love that I can be a mommy and wife one day and a Leader of an amazing company the next. I love that I'm writing my own story of success!

Traditions and Tales

Last weekend I attended Cherish Bound's annual convention in Farmington, NM. Farmington was hosting the "4-Corners Storytelling Festival" this same weekend. As I learned about the in's and out's of Cherish Bound as a business, I also learned the important roll I have as a Cherish Bound consultant in teaching people about the tradition of story. My job as a Cherish Bound consultant is to teach people, families, children, how to simply share their stories, get their families talking and help them find connections. What a great job I blessed I am to be able to provide families ways to become closer to each other.

One of our newest books "Traditions" will help people start new traditions or keep the ones they have alive and thriving in their homes. Along with this beautiful new book, the new "Family Celebrations" is a pocket-size booklet full of questions and space to jot down daily thoughts and reminders from the year.

Are your pictures in boxes? How about on your computer? Get them out of the box and into our PHOTO BOOKS! Get them off your computer and into a beautiful PHOTO BOOK that can be displayed for everyone to see. No memory deserves to sit in a box. Those pictures were taken for reason and had a purpose. So DO something with them. Share them with your family.

Through Cherish Bound's personal online publishing center, you can create beautiful photo books with or without stories and text. You pick your pics and load them into your publishing center and we make your hard or soft bound photo book. Don't let another day go by without sharing your pictures and memories with your family. They're far to precious and many of life's greatest lessons can be taught through a simple picture and memory.

Preserving A Legacy

I love nothing more than to listen to my grandparent's tell me "their" version of their childhood memories and stories. They are the only ones that can give me a sense of where I came from and what to expect from life. "Their" versions are priceless! But what happens when they're not told, shared or preserved? More often than not, these amazing stories, memories and pictures and lost and gone forever. With no listening ears or ways to preserve and share, the history of ourselves...of our family traditions are slowly falling by the wayside. Families now, more then ever, need these stories and traditions to anchor them down and turn them to each other for guidance, support and love.

The Legacy Collection of Story Starters can help any grandparent or parent find, capture and begin sharing their precious stories, memories and photos. This collection of 5 Story Starters includes; I Did It, I Remember When..., Lessons About Life, When I Was Little, and Military.

These Story Starters will help them organize, remember and gather their personal information easily. With 100's of questions they're sure to remember all of their favorite stories and memories. What an amazing gift to give...the Gift Of Story!

We can't control when our lives on this Earth will end, but we can control what legacy we leave behind. Help your family preserve and share their stories. As Alex Haley once said....

"Every time an old person dies, it's like a library burning down."
