Attitude of Gratitude (that might sound cheesy, but I don’t care)

Good Vibrations Blog Inspiration ITF Neatbeat Neatbeat Style PIP

By a show of hands, how many of us have ever caught ourselves alone with our thoughts, whether it’s when you’re driving to work, enjoying coffee on the porch, walking your dogs on a gorgeous day or standing in your kitchen cooking dinner, and you’ve become so overwhelmed with a sense of gratitude for everything in your life that you get a little emotional about it (okay, so maybe you cry about it)?

Good, and just so you know, I raised my hand, too.

Of all of the Brigaders, I’m definitely not the first to start crying in the group. But, every once in a while I’ll find myself counting my blessings, in the middle of beautiful day or a not-so-perfect day, and I can’t control the overwhelming emotions when I think of all the #goodgood that I have been given in this life.

Why?

I still remember all of the time that I spent praying and I never want to take the relationships or my talents or the opportunities I have in my life for granted or not give appropriate credit and gratitude to everything that fills my cup. Which, can be easy to do, without realizing that you’re even doing it.

The act of being #grateful helps keep me focused and keeps my heart in check. It helps me to appreciate people in my life even more and realize everything that they bring to the table. It encourages me to use the talents and resources I have to be successful. And it reminds me that at the end of the day, I have the necessities that I need to have a really good life; amazing friends and family, a safe places to call home, food in my fridge and clothes in my closet.

So, each day, I make it a point to practice being grateful, because it’s something I think you have to work on each and every day.

ITF Notebook

If you come into my house on a normal day, there’s a good chance your gonna see a hot pink flamingo notebook sitting in my kitchen, where every morning I drink my coffee and write down things that I’m thankful for. I’m sure you’ve heard Heather Yurko talk about this a million times, but I promise you it works and it makes such a huge difference in how the rest of your day goes!

2016-03-09_0903

Sometimes I write down things that have happened, different people and relationships, sometimes I’m thankful for things that I’m working on or that I want to happen in the future and other times I write down conversations that I’ve had or advice that people have given me that I want to remember. Regardless if it’s one thing or ten, the act of physically writing what I’m thankful for helps keep the rest of the day in perspective.

Did you get stuck in terrible traffic on the way to work this morning? Oh, that’s okay, because you get to go home to a super fluffy, funny puppy who just loves you so much!

Love Notes

This is my favvvve-orite! First of all, snail mail is so underrated these days. I absolutely love when people send me mail! And even more, I love sending snail mail!

2016-03-09_0904

I always keep blank cards and stamps at home. That way, whenever I feel the need to, I can write up a little love note and send it to someone special! Now, these love notes aren’t always to say “THANKS FOR DOING SOMETHING FOR ME!” but sometimes it’s to say “You’re such a good friend” or “Hey, I know you’re going through some stuff but I really love you and think you’re awesome” or “Hi, thank you for inspiring me by cultivating a killer lifestyle”.

You never know what these love notes might mean to someone. For example, a faraway friend received a diagnosis with a terrible disease that she would have to manage for the rest of her life. Rather than sending her a text or an email, I wrote her a note letting her know that she inspires every day as I watch her overcome adversity and continue being a boss, running her own business. After receiving my note, she emailed me the next day and said “Thank you so much for taking time out of your day to let me know how much I’ve inspired you. I don’t know that anyone has ever done that for me! I’m going to frame your letter and put it in my office as a reminder that everything I do is inspiring someone else whether I see it first hand or not. Thank you!”

I might have cried a little when I got her response….

Remembering to Say Thank You (and giving real hugs)

Okay, so that sounds super easy and you’re probably like “well, duh, you’re supposed to do that anyway…”

But how often do we accidentally forget to thank people for something that they’ve done for us? Whether it’s thanking your best friend for reminding you what true loyalty is or your co-worker for making you laugh so hard you cried or your boss for taking time to talk one on one with you and give you some really good feedback or your momma for reminding you to use your Kroger points before the end of the month…all things that sometimes we forget to tell people we’re really thankful for.

a6a3ed8263769bd23aa4fe3f3c08cb60

And real hugs. Okay, so for a really long time, I wasn’t a hugger; hugs were weird, uncomfortable and had the potential to be super awkward. That was until, I can’t remember exactly what had happened that day but it was  really hard day for me, and one of my friends (not a super close friend either, just someone the I’d chat with at the gym, when we saw each other) came up to me that day and wrapped me up in the biggest most sincere hug and told me she was sorry for whatever was going on with my day. I turned into a puddle. A little, baby puddle of tears. Who knew that a big two armed hug held so much power.

Now, it’s nothing for me to run up to a friend or someone I hadn’t seen in forever or even someone that I meeting for the first time and give them a huge hug. Just because I want them to know how happy I am to see them and have the time to spend with them!

2016-03-09_0913

 

Because at the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what things we have, how much money is in our bank account or what title we have at our job. What matters are the people we roll, the company we keep and relationships that we nurture.

Try adding some of these practices to your life. I promise, you won’t be disappointed :)

 

That PIPn Kind of Love

Goals Good Vibrations Blog Healthy Living Inspiration ITF Neatbeat PIP

Email

Think of last time that someone gave you a compliment; I mean like a real sincere compliment, whether it was about your hair, your outfit or telling you what a great job you did on a certain project.

Remember how that made you feel?

Think of the last time someone did something nice for you, when maybe they didn’t have to. Did they hold a door open for you when it was raining? Pay for your coffee? Surprise you with a FaceTime date when you had a rough day or while you’re out of town? Leave you a hand written note wishing you the #BestDayEver?

Remember how that made you feel?

Now, think of the last time that someone told you how thankful they were for you, how grateful they were to have you in their corner or how much they appreciate your help or your willingness to be their person or their sounding board.

Remember how that made you feel?

Those feelings that you just felt, all over again, even after the moment has passed, that’s the reason that we love PIP and the reason that we choose to live this lifestyle every day. PIPn impacts and affects people long after the moment has passed or the day is over.

The feelings a person has when they’ve been PIPd never go away.

12391868_1682269988653059_6620135010271127686_n

As avid PIPers we make it a point to spread love and goodness as thick as we would spread Nutella, because we realize what a difference it can make in someone’s day, week, month or year. And the great thing about PIPn?

PIPn doesn’t cost you a single thing.

Let me elaborate.

Okay, yea, so you decided to pay for the person behind you at the drive through and they ordered 4 Trinta Double Whip Latte’s with an Extra Shot…but did you look through your rearview mirror and catch them frantically waving “thank you” and smiling from ear to ear?

You had to pay for the postage when you sent a card to someone in the mail…but remember that huge, good, two-armed hug they wrapped you in the next time they saw you because that little card made their not-so-awesome day a bazillion times better?

You held the door open for the person walking behind you when it was raining and you got stuck outside a little bit…but remember the smile and most sincere “thank you” they gave you?

PIPn pays YOU. Because just as awesome as it feels to be PIPd, it feels even more amazing, rejuvenating and rewarding when you do the PIPn.

That’s why we choose to spread love through PIP. Every day. Every month. Every year. It’s a lifestyle.

One of my most favorite quotes from one of the nicest, funniest gals on TV, Ellen DeGeneres,

“I have to say, it’s a little strange to actually get an award for being nice and generous and kind which is what we’re all supposed to do with one another. That’s the point of being a human.”

We wanna know how YOU #PIP! Spread some PIPn goodness this month and snap a picture of it or yourself, tag us in your pic on Instagram so we can share and re-post your story.

Ava’s Coming to the Palace!!

Good Vibrations Blog ITF Neatbeat Style PIP Video

Good Vibrations Blog

 

Ahhhh!! We’re so in love with this PIP!!

Our guest Ashley has been coming to see Heather for about 7 years now. She has shared with us on many occasions how Ava, her daughter wants to be a hairstylist when she grows up! Ashley was at The Palace last week, getting her regularly scheduled haircut and brow wax, when she mentioned that they just gave Ava’s room a good cleaning and afterward, they noticed there was a lot more space available. Ashley asked Ava what she wanted to do with all the extra room and Ava responded with, “I want it to be a salon.” Uuuuuuummmmmmm! Love, love, love! She also is into American Girl dolls and has the setup to make sure their wigs stay looking #neatbeatstyle!

It just so happens that Ava’s 8th birthday is next week and because we admire her awesome, spunky, independent spirit, she’s joining us as an Honorary Brigader at the Palace! If you’re in the salon on the evening of February 4th, be sure to say “Hi” to our girl! She will be helping us out with Hand Rituals, Dancing with guests and all kinds of “hairstylist”things!

Check out how sweet her reaction is when she got her birthday card from the Brigade! We just love how excited she is! This baby girl is the bees knees!

Wow. I woke up this morning not knowing what todays blog would be about. In the new year we are talking about goals, incentives and changing habits and I can so get down with that stuff, I also, have a couple of my own. But I suddenly remembered a blog I did last January 1st, Well Helllerrr 2014!

Wow again. I remember exactly one year ago so vividly. Do you? I, maybe like you am going through some of the most pivotal years of my life and I try to soak in every single detail whether it be positive or a learning curve.

After reading last years blog, I really just wanted to reflect and feel gratitude. Wanna join me?

65ae186a3279030a43afe9a6ebfcb605

2014 was a killer year, We moved into The Palace and said goodbye to those HUMBLE beginnings, (remember, like Marie Forleo says, starting small and sucky doesn’t mean staying small and sucky) Andy and I bought a house AND I started implementing action into my new business, The Heather Yurko Brand (which I am so excited for I can barely contain it)

the-HY-brand-4

What were your milestones in 2014? Just for a moment, close your eyes and FEEL the real gratitude for having those moments in your life. When you have gratitude like this, it cultivates a spark that brings about more amazing milestones like this!

Then I like to feel gratitude for the moments that almost made me throw up in my bed at 5:30 am when I would discover that something “not so awesome” had happened………through my email or a text.

What have you learned from those experiences? Are you more resilient? More forgiving? More loving because now you know that any day could be someones last and it’s silly to hold in anger? Are you more of a fighter because of those less fortunate circumstances that happened in 2014?

Lets sit in that too. Lets sit in the moments that are hard to think about and be grateful for them. There are wise lessons in everything, you just have to look for them. 5f2e3d26cfe41e4bc2de71ae8e0110fe

“It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see”

Heres to a friggin magnificent 2015. I am honored, humbled and incredibly hopeful to see this year and experience that magnitude of blessings that myself and friends will see. heather-signature011

I woke up filled with incredible inspiration in me on Thanksgiving this year. Andy was in Bardstown with Mia Clair (our baby girl aka dog) already and I was gonna use the morning to work and then drive up later. This is not typical for us on Thanksgiving, we typically make coffee and breakfast together and watch the parade, I was a little worried I’d be bummed because they weren’t with me but instead the good vibes were seriously flowing!

 

Just as I was finishing up working, I heard my phone go off with a text message, I grabbed it and saw this:

 

FullSizeRender 2

 

Can you see where this is headed? In last weeks post, I told you how stressed I was about raising all the money I needed for New York and 63 hours before my freaking campaign ends, my cousin sends me this.

As soon as I read this I dropped the phone. I stood still in my silent house and felt a feeling of extraordinary grace fall over me. I. could. not. move. I was stuck, literally. I felt my heartbeat over and over again and every hair on me was standing on end. I will never, in my entire lifetime forget this moment. I haven’t even had the pleasure of meeting my cousins boyfriend and for this type of kindness to be shown to me by a complete stranger was the most inspiring thing ever done to me.

So, the next day (even before the deadline) my my cousin Blair and her boyfriend Ry, put $1,600 in my crowd funding page for the rest of the money I needed for my trip.

I could type away for days about everything I learned during this small journey. The teachings are endless. Ill briefly go through them:

1. Once you put your goal out there, stop at nothing to make it happen… even when you have no clue how in the world how you can accomplish it

2. But even more important, believe like hell that it will happen. I even put goals in my calendar on my phone and set alerts on them for dates I wanted to acquire a certain amount of money. On November 16, one popped up that said:

IMG_1370

 

3. Now, I clearly didn’t have all the $3,000 in donations that I needed on Nov. 16 but I still kept believing. I visualized my campaign saying I have completed 100% of my goal and I visualized it saying $3,000. (shout out to Napolean Hill for teaching me this stuff that changed my life when I was 19)

Screen Shot 2014-12-12 at 8.11.24 AM

Now how cool is that? OVER the goal!

 

4. Don’t lose faith.  I knew that God would provide. He told me so when I got accepted into the bootcamp. Why would He bring me this far and then not assist me in getting the money needed to go. (Now if that did happen, it would be because He’s got good reason) So when I got that text message on Thanksgiving morning, I couldn’t believe that God had pulled this off. I mean I could but I couldn’t!!!!!!!!! I thought to myself “DDAAANNNGGG, your good! 2 days before my campaign ends and you made a way!”  I’ll always keep faith because He can do anything!

5. Now this one was the coolest and it’s a little tough for me to explain into words, so bare with me. I get PIPd all the time. I PIP all the time. But I have never ever been PIPd like this. When I say I needed that money, it’s true. I wanted to prove to myself that I could pull off something so uncomfortable for me, but after it was done, what inspired me the most wasn’t necessarily the “tangibility” (is that a word?) but the fact that someone, a stranger that is, donated so much out of the kindness of his heart. It had A LOT to do with the bigness of the PIP too.

After seeing what a big PIP like this is cable of doing to someones soul, I have become relentless in showing the world how awesome PIP, Positively Impacting People is. There is a fire in me that wasn’t there before, if my own passion project can have this affect on me, what can it do for someone else?!?!!?!?

I write this blog with the deepest of passions. The grace and kindness that was shown to me through the people that donated, especially Blair and Ry, has taught me so much. I am better, stronger, more capable and on my way to my beautiful purpose even more because of this experience. My cup runneth over:)

What were you 1 year ago?

What were you 1 year ago?

Good Vibrations Blog ITF

One year ago today, I left Pure.  I can’t believe it’s been a year, and that I survived.

I was so scared. The fear could have crippled me but God made me strong. I remember leaving and thinking, no more amazing assistants, no more amazing front desk to take care of my guests, no more incredible team around me, no more management to help set goals and encourage me, and no more Aveda.

9900674975cc95c1168f7e50e261f810

We started in a 211 sq. ft. room. Myself doing hair out of two chairs with Danielle and Emily, one girl would answer the phone and book appointments at our front desk/color bar/retail counter and the other would assist me. These two were very unfamiliar with these positions, as was I. To this day the smell of the product line we had to start with (because it wasn’t Aveda) reminds me of struggle. Those aromas, if I ever smell them, put a little pit in my belly that brings me back to October of last year.

When I left Pure, I knew two things for sure. I wanted a team of strong, nice and hand selected individuals that I could lead and I wanted Aveda.

These would be those fine women.

This weekend was Avedas Mid America conference that happens once a year. I took this picture below as soon as the show started with INCREDIBLE emotion in my heart. My whole team sat in front of me and my down ass best friend, Terbear (check out her recent blog here) sat to my left. I thought to myself, in just one year I have most of my team with me, every single one of them is a freakin rockstar and WE ARE AVEDA CONCEPT!!!!!!!!

The tears were-a-flowin-people!

Where were you one year ago? What was your life like and how much have you grown? What lessons did you learn to make you better and what major goals have you achieved since October 3, 2013? I want to know. Make a move now and comment below and tell me, I eat this stuff up!

Thoughts from Momma H

Good Vibrations Blog ITF

Hi!  It’s Momma H and I am ready to talk about some for real Good Vibrations at Neatbeat!  I am thrilled that I get to be the voice of the week and talk to you about a professional topic very near and dear to my career heart!  Exceptional Customer Service!!!  That is right! 


e002ec1eacfbe7c1db25004e31945fd5

Anywhere you go to spend your hard earned money, you certainly want a great customer service experince right????  What happens if you drop a bill down on some T-Bone steak and potato dish and the server is just like you know, “chill?”  

How does it feel when the staff serving you is dis-engaged and they do not know what it means to have a servants heart?  Heaven forbid, you made 50 year anniversary reservations for your aging parents and the hostess is horribly rude to you, rushed in her seating arrangement and completely unbathed?  Gross!  Would you go back to that place and eat again?  I am thinking………um…”no.”

2afcc06277e653b30c243c5e619b5dea
Everyday I am so grateful that this brigade knows what the heck it means to dish out real customer service experiences!  And you know the very best part of it all???  We all love to do it!  Everyone at Neatbeat!!!! We love your experience!  And in just under 12 months, the Neatbeat girls have built a kick ass customer service team!  I know!  I see it everyday as their manager.

More Importantly, do you know who needs a real shout out about now?  Our one and ONLY, Rachel!!!  Let me tell you abour out Rachel!  Not only does she look like Rachel McAdams but really, Rachel McAdams looks like our Rachel!  Rachel has only been with us since May but man did Heather pick a complete Rock Star to become my partner in “customer service crime”!  I mean it is criminal how AWESOME that she is!!  She is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L!  She is one smoking hot Country Cowgirl from California and Rachel takes down home customer service to a whole new level!  Rachel is the epitimy of a team player and leader in our house!

1908017_10201889126063621_8763203914606974422_nHow cute are these coffee mugs? Thanks to our Groupie Amber that got these made for us!



What else?  Well…….Rachel is Smart!  One of the main reason you can trust her with your Neatbeat customer service experience is her loving energy that she brings to the desk and that energy is growing.  And because of the faithfulness of my girl Rachel, you are going to be hearing more about how she leads us in that roles with her genuine loyalty to her job!

Rachel’s personality is For Real, Golden and Precious!  And God knows, right at the moment that Neatbeat took off when we moved to our new location in April, like a rocket, Rachel came to Neatbeat and became my absolute Angel!  

My girl Rachel, can “greet ya”, “meet ya”, and down right “sweet ya” all the while loving on you with her natural desire to serve.  Thank you Rachel for being a Great Vibration for us, you are genuinely appreciated!

Every day that I am here at Neatbeat, I am presented yet with another guest compliment or email, or a Fantastic Facebook post with somebody commenting on how awesome Neatbeat is.  These conversations I have with our guests well……, they are just off the chain!  It is every day that our great customer service experience is showing up even in the moments when we are not PERFECT!

People tell me when they walk into Neatbeat there is an incredible “wow” factor which takes place as they step foot through the door.    

8d57387cf566dfbd5b1c5e1e1c637cbe

You can totally have a great hair experience at any salon but if you have a crappy customer service experience at the desk…..then an EPIC customer service FAIL has taken place!  We are blessed to know at Neatbeat that this is always top priority, us serving you through PIP!

I had just sat down to watch Vampire Diaries, eat my veggie burger in my favorite pajamas when I got the text. Tuesday night around 9:30 my friend Jaclyn Journey, an AMAZING flower artist in Louisville, messaged me asking if I had seen the latest issue of Brides Magazine.
Then she sent this picture
 Listing-Bride-Mag
 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was super excited thinking it was a cool local magazine, which would have been great too.
Then she sent me this picture
Bridal Magazine
At this point, the bold red lettering “In America” still didn’t register for me.
Then she sent this picture
Brides Cover
Then it hit me. It took Ciara being on the front cover for me to realize, this is real. This is nationwide. And people are taking notice of our hard, hardhard work. They separated the salons across the country by 4 regions and in bold lettering I read, “The South” and WE ARE THE ONLY SALON IN THE STATE OF KENTUCKY. (My heart is still fluttering even typing that)
Then I freaked out!!!!! I immediately took a video of myself and uploaded it to our private Neatbeat Facebook group (that only the Brigade has access to) and help my phone up to the camera on my Mac book so they could see for themselves. I was filled with passion, excitement, gratitude and hope. One by one and it only took about 30 seconds for everyone to respond and my phone was going crazy.
My almost favorite thing about the scenario, was the fact that EACH one of my girls, had such a sense of pride about this. Every single one of them was incredibly excited and our sweet spot Em J (Emily) even ran to the store to get a copy as soon as she got the message. They were just as excited as I was and as their leader, you only want a team who is as passionate as you.
This goes to the girls that make stuff like this happen. They are incredible and sent to me on purpose and for very specific reasons. We will make history together and my wildest dreams are to lead women through PIP. I believe we are on our way.
A deep gratitude goes to Brides Magazine, for recognizing our hard work. We got super creative with the way our “Going to the Chapel” (what we call our wedding parties) looked like and it’s nice to know that people appreciate it. We are even more inspired to go above and beyond on the big day for ladies and everyday for our Groupies because of this.
And to you Jaclyn Journey, for being the talented flower boss that you are, much love girlfriend!

3 awesome ways to have Happy Days plus Bonus Printable!

Good Vibrations Blog Inspiration ITF PIP

I was just having a conversation with one of my totally cool, selfless, down to earth, and hardworking guests Chrissy (can you tell I really like this woman?) and we were talking about finding the good in all situations. I have always believed that when you are faced with a scenario, you have the choice to seek the good or the bad. AND when we take action with something, we can act out of love or fear. Thats it. Four different scenarios in this life and choosing one over the other results in two drastically different outcomes.

Which got me thinking, what do I do for my soul to set myself up to choose the good, and act out of love? Which in turn, creates a very happy life. The answers came so easily for me because I have rituals that I don’t skimp on, they are done ALL the time, which results in an incredibly happy and humble life.

1. Gratitude. Write it Down. Now this is at the top of the list for a reason. Gratitude changed my life in 2007. I learned it on such a deep level and to have this appreciation for ALL things that come into your life makes every situation easier. When something real crappy happens to me, I am thankful. When something really fantastic happens to me, I am thankful. And ya know what? Not a lot of crappy things happen to me:) and I am so thankful for that!!!

Below is the insert that we put on the front inside cover of every single PIP Book we gave away the night of our Partaay. My wish is that all our Groupies take note and adopt this life changing action!

PIP book insert Final

2. PIP. I was walking walking into Kroger about two weeks ago and there was an older couple walking out. The woman looked STUNNING. She had on a pretty peach flowing dress, her hair looked something like Marilyn Monroe, jus the right touch of jewelry and she walking with her arms wrapped in her husbands. She just looked so pretty. I couldn’t help myself and before I knew it, I was yelling across the parking lot, (I’m easily 50 ft away from her) “You look so beautiful today!!!” Her reaction was so cool, she couldn’t believe I was talking to her and she said thank you two times in a row! Going out of your way to make someone else feel very special, makes your heart happy. It just does.

PIP-759wide

3. Wake up. Be Quiet. This is what I’d like to call a double whammy. It is proven, over and over again that when you wakeup at least 1-2 hours before you need to start your daily activities that you have a more productive, less chaotic day. In early January this year, I was laying in bed reading a blog from Entrepreneur magazine that talked about the difference between Successful people and Unsuccessful people. As I read I was happy to find out I had many traits of the Successful except for watching too much Tv and I love Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars, SOA, The Walking Dead and The Originals to be changing any of that…. that’s just non negotiable. The one thing I did want to change was the time I woke up. I used to jump out of bed at the last second, leaving just enough time for me to hop in the shower and get ready before I left the house. Since January, I have consistently woke up at 7 am to do my morning rituals and the ease on my energy and brain that early has made all the difference. The rest of the day just flows so much smoother.

*On to the Be Quiet part. I know this can be tough for those of you who don’t practice now but closing your eyes and sitting in silence for at least 5 minutes is so important. If you have no clue how to do it, count your breaths, if you lose count, start over. (I learned that in a Deepok Chopra and Oprah course)

A Big Ole Thank You

Good Vibrations Blog Inspiration ITF PIP

I woke up last Friday morning, around 3 am thinking about the day that had finally come. I made coffee and sat on my couch, wrote down some things I was thankful for and then the gratitude starting to flood in….. literally.

I have waited for the day of the Grand Opening to my salon  f.o.r.e.v.e.r.  it seems like and as I sat there in my living room in the small “cozy” apartment that I live in, I thought about all the people that helped me get this far. As I thought of my best friend Terbear, I got so emotional I went into the hiccup cry!! The loyalty, love and friendship that she provides my life with is a DIRECT enhancement to the success of myself and Neatbeat.

photo 2

I was excited and calm all day but in the back of my mind my biggest fear was of no one showing up. As I got to the salon, some girls were there frantically gathering  last minute details to the partaay, my family was there and I began to breathe. The people that I loved most where the ones that WERE there, making sure the night would go exactly the way I had specifically explained for months.

The Brigade brought me into our break room and had some killer surprises planned out for me, we were all emotional and filled with love, respect honor and loyalty…… these are ingredients that build an empire and leave a legacy.

They made me this little video the morning of the Partaay, I just love it so much.

One thing I know for sure is this: I have the best. My team, the Neatbeat Brigade is hands down and hand selected a team of Champions. We only have the best… the best hearts, the best motives, the most compassion. I thank God so often when I think of the 10 girls that make up the best salon in America.

A few more points that I wanna touch on before I wrap it up with Good Vibes for this week. One of my favorite parts of the night was when me and Terri were standing by the door and she looked at me and said “Look at this, this is only the beginning.” At that moment there were people EVERYWHERE, I felt so alive and humbled in the truth of her statement… she was right, if this was only the beginning………. where in the world are we headed?!?!?!?!?!?!!?
