Better You Boo! Where online business and personal growth are our thing.

Hi! My name is Jessica and I am obsessed with helping other people achieve their goals from small to big because a win is a win. Am I right?!

Earlier this year I was part of a MLM company that literally slapped me in the face in a good way. I fell in love with connecting with people, creating a brand, marketing and helping people feel better in general. Ultimately I decided to stop selling because it didn’t interest me to learn about the products. My interest was in the people that surrounded my new brand. Helping them succeed and connecting with like minded people was that “ah-ha” moment for me. THIS is where I need to be.

I lived in facebook groups…quite literally. The sisterhood, the knowledge, the like minded people…it just spoke to me. We do so much research when we become invested in something such as reading books, watching documentaries or maybe even interning when some of the best up front knowledge is right on facebook. Don’t think you got out of reading books….books are still very important.

Fast forward to today. I’ve taken the leap and created my own little group in the world of Facebook. My group is called BETTER YOU BOO and will be your saving grace if you are looking for help with any of the following-

-Self help

-Goal setting

-Creating a business

-Networking

-Personal advice

-Communication advice

-Social media

-Career guidance

 

So head on over to facebook and make sure you join my new group called BETTER YOU BOO! You don’t want to miss all the freebies coming out soon!

HelloFresh vs. cereal dinners – Was it worth the WORK? $40 code for YOU!

When I’m hungry, I’m HUNGRY. That has always been the leading factor of why I never was into cooking. Most meal preparation consume your time and energy before you can even sit down to feast your face off. Like, no. I’m not about that life. If I want it…I want it now.

My best friend is the opposite of me when it comes to the kitchen. She spends what seems like hours in the kitchen preparing meals and experimenting with recipes. We always joke with each other when we say “whats for dinner tonight” and her response is something gourmet and my response is cereal.

Being the natural chef that she is, she was eager to try out a meal delivery service call HelloFresh. Once she signed up, she was able to give (3) free meals to a friend. To be completely honest, I brushed off the initial offer because I thought i would hate the meals because I’m a picky eater. When she pushed the second time, yo’ girl took the offer because FREE FOOD HELLO.

I jumped on the website, entered the code and picked the vegetarian option because I am trying to be nicer to my aging bod. Once I realized that I wasn’t able to pick different meals and didn’t love the meals that were on the menu, sheer panic set in.

Homegirl picked up that phone and within a minute I was talking to a person from HelloFresh. It was like she was waiting for my call. I expressed my concern and within a snap she converted me over to the regular meal plan and let me pick my (3) meals. Once my meals were picked I asked the most important question. “When do I have to cancel so I wont be charged for anything”? The representative told me the date and even sent me an email with instructions. I was never charged a penny.

The meals came on Monday and inside the box were (3) labeled brown paper bags and the meats were in ice on the bottom of the box. My first glance to the brown paper bags brought back memories of school lunches and I wasn’t sure if I loved it.

As I opened the first meal, I realized the brown paper bag is the biggest lifesaver of all. The convenience of having the bag in front of you to throw your trash in made cooking so much cleaner and easier. A meal card with instructions, pictures, macros, ingredients and what wine to pair the meal with was so incredibly helpful.

Other than googling how to cut an onion then facetiming my best friend to ask her how to cut parsley, I was able to cook the entire meal by myself. The satisfaction of being able to cook a meal that didn’t taste like death was a great feeling. It made me feel like cereal can now be option #2 and not option #1.

Final thoughts-

I thought I was going to hate it. I LOVED it.

I thought I was getting free food and that’s it but I was actually taught how to cook by a HelloFresh recipe card.

Cooking can be scary but having pictures with each step makes it easier.

Would I purchase a weeks worth of meals? Absolutely.

-I’m always tired
-I’m craving candy
-My mood is up and down
-I have anxiety
-I could eat all day
-I can’t sleep
-I’m gaining weight
-My skin is acting up

Working out, eating healthy and no change. Worst thing ever. Quick read.

You’ve been there, right? You dedicated your time and money into getting “fit”  but the only things that actually fits are your sweatpants.  Been there done that.

 I want you to do a little exercise for me. Don’t worry this is not an exercise that involves actual movement. I want you to think for one minute straight (no distractions) on just these points:

1. How many workouts have you done within the last year?

2. How many meal preps have you done?

3. How many meals were replaced with shakes?

4. How many times did you think you were going to pass out from hunger after having a so called shake?

5. How many times did you say to yourself, their has to be an easier way.

Now in comparison to the gym, was that the easiest exercise ever or what?!  Now that you’ve answered all of the above questions, are you where you want to be health wise? What about weight?  Have you tried EVERYTHING?

I worked out, eat healthy, replace meals with shakes (and hated it), lived off lean cuisine and saw zero changes.  At the age of 26, I knew I couldn’t live the rest of my life like that.  I did not want to be that girl. You know that girl that lives in the gym and eats lettuce for lunch and can’t have a coffee because oh my God too many calories.

I WANTED TO LIVE MY LIFE.

I started to drink kombucha and oddly enough just kind of felt more alive. I started researching got health as connectio and oddly enough just kind of felt more alive. I started researching gut health as kombucha is excellent for your gut.  I realized I had hit the jackpot.  80% of your immune system is tied to your gut. If you don’t have a healthy gut, everything else you do is not going to be 100%. So all that time in the gym and in the kitchen will only really be benefiting you about 40%.

The plant based supplements I am currently taking are targeted towards gut health and have completely changed my life.   I want everyone out there to know there is an easier way. Get your gut healthy and everything else will follow. Contact me to find out how you can start living the life of your dreams.

HOW TO BE SUCCESSFUL IN DECEMBER!

I think I’m half bear because once winter comes around all I want to do is hibernate. I get extremely lazy put off things that I need to do and stop working out. All things that I SHOULD be doing.

Considering today is December 1st these are the things that I will be doing for the rest of the month to hold myself accountable and be more productive.

WAKE UP 3060 MINUTES EARLY!

I don’t know about you but when it is dark out I struggle to get out of bed. I associate the dark with sleep and can’t wrap my head around the fact that I could be waking up and doing something productive. Isn’t sleep productive? HELLUR!? Waking up 30 minutes earlier every single day to do something for yourself, that could be making a homemade breakfast or working out or tidying up around the house before the day even starts. You’ll find that the feeling of accomplishment starts before your workday. That accomplishment will follow you all day and lead you to more accomplishments and better things.

WRITE DOWN DAILY GOALS!

Writing down daily goals will keep you on track and you will be more productive during the day. Also sidenote, you could do this in the morning during your 30 minutes of your time. Write down simple things like take out the trash, clean your room, get groceries, etc. The more you get done during the day the more accomplished she’ll feel the less you have to pile all of the chores during one day and feel overwhelmed.

START A PIGGYBANK

I know that sounds funny depending on your age maybe like, really a piggy bank?! I promise you won’t regret this. Decided figure amount that you like to take out every single paycheck. Write this number down if you have to or you can make a calendar reminder just don’t forget about it. Take out as little as $20 every single paycheck. If you get paid biweekly $40 extra a month. If you do the month by yourself something special something that you wanted. It’s a reward for holding yourself accountable and sticking to your goal. The next month increase your amount to $30 and so on and so forth. This will help you start saving money rewarding yourself and you’ll be happier, believe me.

What are your goals for December? Do you follow any of these practices that I’ve mentioned? Are you also super lazy or is that just me? Let me know in the comments below!

Stay cool my friend, stay cool.

HOW TO EARN FREE TRAVEL!

What if I told you that you could get free travel rewards by changing one thing? That’s right ONE thing. Put down your checkbook and debit card right now because you’re doing it all wrong.

Sit down (or stand, whatever floats your boat) and write down all of your monthly expenses. Don’t freak out we all have them. This would include rent/mortgage, utilities, car payment, student loans, ect. Now multiple that number by 3. Does your total come close to $4,000? If so, pack your bags because you’re going on a vacation.

The Chase Sapphire Preferred card has the following promotion going on:

SPEND $4,000 IN 3 MONTHS RECEIVE $625 IN TRAVEL REWARDS.

Book a flight, book a hotel, book anything travel related for FREE once you’ve hit you’re $4,000 mark.

Please remember to PAY OFF your card after your debts. Once your mortgage hits your credit card, pay that ish off immediately. Don’t build up interest and cost yourself extra money.

If you’re already making these payments, why not get rewarded for being a responsible adult? Am I right?

If you decide to apply for a Chase Sapphire Preferred credit card remember this one thing to help save you money in about a year. An annual fee of $95 is associated with the card. Don’t want to pay the $95? Add a calander reminder to your phone around the one year mark. Call Chase and tell them you want to downgrade to the next level down. The next card down does not have an annual fee and you can still get points per dollar spent.

You’re welcome. Make sure you remember me when you’re on your free vacation.

Stay cool my friends, stay cool.
