10 Things My #Allume Roommates Should Know About Me

When I attended the first Relevant Conference in 2010, I shared a list of ten things my roommates should know, it’s still pretty accurate.

But now the Conference is called Allume, and reposting something from two years ago would be boooooooring so…

Here’s ten things my Allume Roommates should know about me!

  1. I love to lead and mentor women. In my business, in my faith, and as wives & mothers.
  2. I feel like I’m looking at my life from the outside right now. It seems impossible that I have a high school senior applying to colleges.
  3. I have two children, just over one year apart in age. So even though I have teenagers right now, I remember the exhaustion, joy, frustration, love, and adventure of having little ones at home.
  4. I used to homeschool but now we’re not. I loved having the option of keeping our kids at home for most of their junior high years, but we are loving our local school options here in Washington. I hope I can support and encourage those homeschooling now, but don’t be offended if I wander from the group when the topic turns towards it.
  5. I am married to a military man. He is, in fact, in the United States Air Force. He is also, in fact, amazing and my best friend in the world.
  6. I wish I could say my hobbies are photography, scrapbooking and reading.  Lately those things don’t seem to actually be a routine part of my life though. I would really like a better camera. I rarely sit long enough to sort through my photos, much less journal alongside them in a book. My reading seems to be sporadic this year despite my focus to read 100 books last year.
  7. I love my work. I will talk about what I do as it comes up in natural conversation just like you would if you are a dentist or a stay at home mom. It doesn’t mean you have to buy my products or become a consultant. Those things happen as a natural part of people trying what I offer and deciding for themselves if they like it or not. I won’t push it on you just because it’s a direct sales company and I appreciate you not treating it like it’s not really work just because it’s a direct sales company. I talk about it because of the great people it’s allowed me to work with and because I love the products myself.
  8. I need my sleep. I know I won’t get nearly enough of it at the conference, but please don’t be offended if I don’t want to chat til 2am or sleep a little longer while you get a shower in the morning. I can also sleep through a lot, so feel free to talk amongst yourselves if I crash!
  9. I want to hear your story. I’m big on networking because of the benefits I’ve seen it give to others, not just myself. I love to hear about your work, your family, your dreams and more. When it comes to blogging, tell me what got you started, what’s kept you going, and what you’d like to do next.
  10. I cannot function without music in my life. I need it for encouragement, calming in stressful situations, praising my Creator, and so much more. Today, the song that is speaking to me is this lovely collection of musical praise.
