What do your adult kids want for Christmas?

GaylaTaylorFamilyChristmasTree thumb What do your adult kids want for Christmas?

How many other parents of adult/grown kids are having a hard time buying for their kids?

My kids just keep saying they want money!  Money, money, money!  ACK  I’m sick of it!

I don’t want to give them money!  I don’t want to give them gift cards!  I want REAL gifts under the tree for them to open at Christmas!

What fun is it, opening up an envelope? 

I do that every day and let me tell you, it’s NOT fun!

This is my second year as an empty nest parent so I’m going to need a little help!

Any advice?  Tips?  Ideas?

Do tell!  PLEASE!

I Joined the ItWorks Skinny Wrap Craze! Results Forthcoming!

itworkslogogaylataylor thumb I Joined the ItWorks Skinny Wrap Craze! Results Forthcoming! A few months ago, I saw a girl I know talking about the ItWorks wraps. She is a loyal customer and a believer in the product – but, she is not a distributor. That’s what got me intrigued to begin with. I quietly watched her comments and saw how many people would snap at the chance to purchase a single wrap when she got her next order.

I began checking into the product a little more – then more and before I knew it, I was obsessed with uncovering real comments from real users who were not distributors. I wanted to see REAL pictures – not those wrapped in the ItWorks frames that were part of the promotional tools used by the company.

I found what I was looking for.

Next I wanted to know if I could join the program without hosting parties – without going out and throwing sales pitches in public settings. I have worked from home FAR too long to get back into anything like that. Besides, I had tried Mary Kay a LONG time ago, and failed horribly.

I finally approached the girl that sold me on the product and told her if she would become a distributor, I would sign up under her. Unfortunately, her work and life situation didn’t allow her to join up yet – but she’s determined to join at some point.

Without someone I actually KNEW in the real world to sign up under, I waited. I watched some more and I dug around even more. That’s when I found a girl I went to school with who was listed as a distributor. I contacted Val and began emailing her about her experience. She proceeded to tell me that she was new to the program but she is a loyal believer in the product and she is on target to make ItWorks her primary business.

After a brief phone conversation with Val to answer my questions – I sent out a feeler post on Facebook to see who else I might know who used the products and to learn from their feedback. A friend of a friend messaged me and answered SO many questions and provided me with her own images and shared her own results.

That’s all it took!

I am in! I officially joined the program and will be sharing my own experiences and my own journey with my readers. I have always taken pride in providing absolute product reviews – the good, the bad and the really bad – I plan to do the same with ItWorks. So stay tuned!

You will learn from my own experience and from the experiences of those who wish to give ItWorks a try with me.

Want to test drive the skinny wraps too? Order Here

If you have tried the products and have any thing you’d like to say about your own experience, I would love to hear about it – so please share your comments in the section below.

This should be a lot of fun!
