Promote your Business as a Vendor

Promote your Business as a Vendor

By, Jewels Muller

One way to market your business is to have a vendor booth. First you need to decide if you are interested in traveling or staying in your hometown. If you would rather stay close to home, do some research on the annual events and activities. Find out the costs and procedure for applying for a vendor booth. You can then look into the workshops and trade shows that take place close by. You may also find opportunities at the festivals, music concerts, school, bazaars, and church gatherings.

Take some time to identify the purpose of your vendor booth. Are you selling something tangible? Are you selling an online product or coaching program? Are you promoting upcoming events of your own? Make sure you know what you want to sell and how you will go about selling it. Have everything you need to make the complete sale or a system to follow up as soon as the vendor show is over.

What can you do to attract people to your booth? I have seen giveaways, drawings, candy, contests, samples, free items, swag bags and engaging activities. Do what works best for you and ties in with your business. If you are selling flavored macadamia nuts; having someone walk around with samples is a wonderful way to attract people to your booth. (I know, because I purchased 4 bags the last time I tried a sample.)

Follow up is often ignored but remains to be one of the most important things to ensure success as a vendor. If you gather names and emails for a drawing, make sure to enter them into a system, send out an email notifying everyone as to who won the drawing, and remind them about your products and services.

I find it helpful to have a checklist when preparing for vendor events. I hope you find this helpful as well.

What is your Culture?

What is your Culture?

By, Jewels Muller

I used to cry when the cultural groups would come to the Elementary School where I was a teacher. The Native Americans would put on an assembly to teach us about their culture. A group from Africa would come and dance and play drums. Another one from Mexico would come around Cinco De Mayo in their beautiful cultural dress and would sing and dance in celebration. These assemblies were so wonderful that I would be moved to tears and find myself asking the question, “What is my culture?” “What do I celebrate?” “What are my songs and what are my dances?” I am an American but where do I come from and how do I celebrate? What does it mean to me to be an American? I am part of the American culture.

From a very early age I was taught to respect the American Flag. We honored her. We saluted her. We would not let her touch the ground. We raised her and lowered her at summer camp. We were taught to fold her into a tight triangle. She was placed on the caskets of fallen soldiers and then handed to the widow or widower during the funeral. She was made for us. She was made for Americans. She is the representation of many men and women who fought for our freedom. Died for our freedom. She is beautiful. She is part of my culture as an American. She is part of me. She is my song and dance.

I can remember seeing an angry group from another country burn our precious beautiful flag in a movie I was watching. My heart sank, but I could understand that perhaps they were angry with us and that was how they were lashing out. What I can’t understand for one moment is an American disrespecting our beautiful flag. Although, I can come to understanding when I acknowledge that it is a young person that may not know better who is acting out to get attention. When I find out it is adults who are teaching our youth and who are part of my American culture, it leaves me dumbfounded. It hurts my heart. Why don’t they leave if they disrespect our country and our people who fought for our freedom? The thing that really gets me is this… This is how amazing our country is… You have the right to do it! You have the right to blatantly disrespect our American flag because we LIVE in this great country of America which allows you that right. You have the right to sit when others stand and salute her. It really hurts my heart but it is your right. That is why our America is so beautiful.

Again, I don’t know the answers to all of this but I have the American right of free speech and I wanted to voice my opinion about my culture and my beautiful American flag. It doesn’t matter what color I am or what sex I am. I am an American citizen. I am part of this beautiful “Melting Pot” of a culture which is what we used to call it. We used to embrace the diversity and we were proud to be part of this melting pot. What happened to that? I could learn the dances of other cultures and be exposed to other languages and foods and stories and we were all one among many different people. I LOVE the different people who make up America. I love the individuals who bring their stories, their cultures, their beliefs, their individuality. I am proud of America. I am proud of our American Flag. I will work alongside anyone who is interested in making her even better but to tear her down in the process is not the solution. The question is, “What can I do to serve the American people (be it one or many) and make this country even better?”

Tour of your Business

Tour of your Business

By, Jewels Muller

Imagine for a moment that your business gave weekly tours to visitors. What key elements would you include on your tour? We have been traveling full-time with our twin boys for over 5 years now, and we love finding businesses that will let us tour their companies. Such establishments like; Zappos in Las Vegas, Infusionsoft in Arizona, Corvette in Bowling Green, Kentucky, and Buck Knives in Post Falls, ID.

I am always thrilled when tour day comes because I have such a heart for innovation and entrepreneurship. I want to know WHY it started and HOW they did it. We toured Buck Knives today.

Think back to the initial question, what key elements would you include on your tour?

Let me point out some of the memorable moments from the tour today and keep these ideas filed away for your own business.

• The tour was advertised with a rack card at the RV park

• The tour was free and it listed the number to phone to reserve your spot

• When making the reservation you speak to a real person who also lets you know the rules of closed toed shoes and arriving 15 minutes early

• She warned us of traffic delays due to construction and let us know she would be excited to see us

• The outside was beautifully landscaped and we stopped to take a picture of the boys by the sign

• We walked through the double doors and saw some examples of taxidermy and a beautiful antler chandelier

• We were greeted by a friendly woman who told us to go back to the store to wait for the tour

• We were welcomed again, asked to read and sign the waivers, and put on our badges

Off to the side of the store was an open door to a cafeteria, we went in and sat at a table waiting for the tour to begin. This is where the disconnect occurred. It looked as though the floor hadn’t been swept in a week or so. It was completely out of character from what we had experienced so far. (This is a reminder to follow the experience through as a customer. What are they seeing?) Maybe we weren’t supposed to be in there or maybe they just had a messy eater at that table, but in either case, we saw it and had a reaction to it. Another question to ask yourself as a business owner is, how are your potential clients feeling and what are they experiencing in your presence or with your product or service?

Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept the flow moving while stressing the importance of safety. She told the story of how it began, and what we would be seeing on the manufacturing floor. We went in with protective eye gear, earplugs, and a listening device so we could hear our tour guide. She talked about the materials that make the blade and the handle. She showed us where the custom knives were made and how they can produce up to 1.5 million knives per year with the systems they have in place.

Another aspect of this business made a big impression on me. They warranty their products for life. She showed us a knife that was in a fire, one that had been used to start a car when the vehicle owner lost his keys, and another one where the owner tried to weld on the tip that he had broken off. She explained that each of these knives were replaced for free and if the non-working knife was sentimental, they would send it back with the new one.  What type of warranty program do you have for your products and services?

Take a moment and jot down what the tour of your business would include. Walk your potential customer through the history, the offerings, the value and what the future holds for your company. These tours may be in person or could easily be a tour that you share online via video. Get creative. Take action. Invite others into your business by sharing your story!

5 Steps to Creating a Content Marketing Strategy

5 Steps to Creating a Content Marketing Strategy

by, Jewels Muller

Have you heard the saying, “Content is King?” The first time I heard this was years ago at a Brendon Burchard event and as soon as he said it, I purchased the domain name, Create Content Now! Creating Content is what I did for years as a teacher so I thought it would be a natural fit for me. That domain and many others sat in my GoDaddy account while life took over. Can anyone relate to that?

A different path was set out for me over the last 6 years as I launched and grew a Women’s Empowerment Movement called Chicks Connect. Creating content is what I do on a weekly basis for this membership group but it was only within the last year that I circled around to teaching others how to create content of their own in this 5-step strategy that I will share with you.

1.      Tribe

2.      Challenges

3.      Content

4.      Action

5.      Results

Tribe – Who is your tribe? Who is it that you are talking to or the tribe you wish to attract? What do you already know about them? What do they have in common? Work on identifying your tribe by describing your ideal client/customer for the tribe. Be very clear and narrow it down as much as possible. Here are some examples:

·        Entrepreneurial Women

o  In the field of Holistic Health

o  In Direct Sales and MLM’s

·        People over 40 who are overweight by at least 20 pounds

·        Pet owners

o  Dog Owners

·        Female leaders who are balancing family and work

·        People who have experienced a traumatic brain injury

·        Couples who love to travel

Challenges – What big challenges do they face? What little challenges do they face? What are the obstacles that keep them stuck? Identify as many challenges as you can possibly think of. Remember, with every challenge there is an opportunity to provide a solution in the form of a product or service.

·        Pet Owners of Dogs – Examples of Challenges

o  Working long hours

o  Busy

o  Not enough time

o  Not enough information

o  Heart is torn

o  Guilt

o  Chewed up furniture

o  Biting dog

o  Barking

o  Accidents on the carpet

o  Not taking enough dog walks

o  Shedding

o  Poor behavior with other dogs or animals

o  Poor behavior with people

Content – What do you want your tribe to know? What is important as they navigate through life? Look at your list of challenges and see if some of what you want them to know is a solution for the challenges that you have already listed. Notice the months of the year listed by the topics below. Use this as an example of how to organize your content by months. Each of the subcategories in January can be daily or weekly content. Make subcategories for each of your monthly topics.

Pet Owners of Dogs – Create Content EXAMPLES:

·        Grooming – January (Who and What are my resources – Groomers, Grooming tools, products, services, pet stores, farm supply stores, Amazon (affiliate)! Rescue, books on grooming) Examples of Content subcategories below.

Action – What do you want your tribe to do? Come up with free things all the way to a high-ticket option. Brainstorm a list of possible products, solutions, and other calls to action.

o  Watch my videos – Free

o  Join my Doggie Club – $14 monthly

o  Buy my products – $29 – $7,987

o  Read my book – Free / Amazon $2.99

o  Newsletters

o  Come to my workshop

o  Post your photo on Facebook

o  Attend our Doggie and Mama Spa Retreat – $1597

Results – What will your tribe have or gain because of buying, learning, or joining you? What will they get and how will they feel? You can think of these things in the form of tangible items and intrinsic items. Write down all the results that you can think of and remember to go back to your list of challenges if you need some help coming up with the solutions and results.

o  Peace of Mind knowing their dog is well cared for

o  Healthy diet for their dog

o  Information to make informed decisions about Doggie Day Care

o  Interview questions for the Vet

o  Increased fun, happiness, and unconditional love

o  Intact furniture and shoes

o  Quite home

o  Healthy, happy pet

o  Owners will feel – happy, satisfied, responsible, loved, respectful, proud, confident, calm, content (Go back to their challenges and see if you have met them with your products and services. If not, create another one to solve that challenge. Then list the feeling that they may have because of solving that challenge).

Once you have your content categories for the year, you can chart them in an organized fashion and drill down to the daily details. There is a joy in bringing people together with a common interest for connection, knowledge and making an impact!

Guest Blogger Debbie Fong Kho Dangers of Using Essential Oils

Guest Blogger Debbie Fong Kho Dangers of Using Essential Oils

Essential oils offer a range of health, beauty and natural home cleaning benefits.
But, beware, before you apply undiluted essential oil directly on to your skin or ingest the oils, because it’s natural, doesn’t mean it’s safe.
1.  Photosensitive oils are generally the citrusy oils. Increases your chance of sunburn within short among of sun exposure.  Additionally, for your acne skin applying these citrusy oils may cause increase irritation or inflammation with acne.
 * lemon
 * lime
 * grapefruit
 * orange
 * bergamot
2.  Pregnancy or nursing moms.  The National Association for Holistic Aromatherapy (NAHA), suggest pregnancy women not to use these essential oils.
 * wintergreen
 * sage
 * mugwort
 * tarragon
 * birch
 * aniseed
 * camphor
 * hyssop
 * parsley
 * pennyroyal
 * tansy
 * thuja
 * wormwood
 * peppermint
3.  Medication Interactions.  Any type of medications always consult with a qualified, professional aromatherapist before the use of any essential oils.
4.  Children or babies.  This I’ve heard numerous occasions, using essential oils on crying, colic, sick babies or young children.  Wintergreen, eucalyptus, rosemary and peppermint should never be used as they can actually slow breathing, or even stop with those babies who may have respiratory problems.  Treat essential oils like you would any type of medicine…keep them away from children.
5.  Essential oils and pets.  Pennyroyal, tea tree oil are used on pets for fleas, but it’s toxic to animals kidney and liver.  Can cause a slow onset of organ failure.
6.  Ingesting essential oils.  In drinking water, salad dressing, cooking or using oils as a detox are all highly dangerous.  Could burn the esophagus, cause a build up of toxicity or even fatality.
7.  Essential oil and skin.  Using undiluted essential oil on skin can cause blisters, rash or burnt skin.
The rule of thumb is the radio of dilution is 3-5 drops of essential oils to 1 teaspoon of carrier oil.  Carrier oils are jojoba, coconut, grape seed, avocado or almond oil.
Be safe, be smart with essential oils.

Hawaii to Maine in a RV – Logistics

Hawaii to Maine in a RV –  Logistics

We can’t even believe our lifestyle sometimes. One week we are in Hawaii, the next in Vernon, Canada and a week later in Wells, Maine. How can this be in an RV? Well, it wasn’t in an RV in Hawaii. The planning and logistics of a fulltime RV’er can be complex at times. This blog will simply be a reconstruction of what we did, so I have a record and for those of you who are curious; it might be an interesting read.

My wonderful in-laws invited us to Hawaii to stay with them in their timeshare. “How long can you stay?” They asked. “How long do you want us?” We happen to be able to work no matter where we are, if we have an internet connection, so Hawaii is just as good as any other place with wifi.

On April 13 – 15, 2017 we had an event in Portland, Oregon so we made our way up from California to Portland, stopped over 1 night in Bend, Oregon so the boys could go to their orthodontist on April 11th, and then headed to the Pheasant Ridge RV Resort in Wilsonville, OR. We purchased a used car on the 12th. They agreed to keep the car until we returned from Hawaii.  We ran around on the 13th getting the final items together for our big Chicks Connect Inspiration Celebration and attended the kick off the night of the 13th. The boys stayed with my parents during this event. This was the first one they missed but I wanted them to spend time with my folks.

The event was over at 5pm on the 15th, we cleaned up and headed to our Rig at Pheasant Ridge. Both of my sisters were kind enough to come over and give us hugs and help me clean out our refrigerator because you can’t store food in there when you put your rig in storage. The freezer and fridge need to be emptied and cleaned out so your refrigerator doesn’t get moldy. Packing up an RV takes time. Everything needs to be put away since it will be moving. Imagine everything on your counters throughout your home needing to be put away, all hanging items off the walls, everything cleaned out of your fridge, and then bringing in the walls of your living room. Those are called slides. We have 2 decks and 2 slides that also need to be put up and brought in. Oh, we also needed to pack for Hawaii. My mom brought the boys over, helped with the fridge, gave us big hugs goodbye.

MISTAKE ALERT – not on purpose of course, but I did make a big mistake while planning this and I want to warn others so they don’t do the same thing. When I was making the reservations, I booked the RV resort from the 11th to the 15th because I was checking into the hotel on the 15th so that seemed logical. What I didn’t compute was, check out at the RV park is at 11am and we were there until 7pm. I should have booked our RV stay until the 16th since we were so late in checking out. They had someone who wanted our spot and we were still there when they came to check in. They tried to call us but we were deep into our event and our phones were turned off. I felt terrible when I realized my mistake. They found another spot for them and they simply charged me for an extra night, but I don’t like making mistakes.

We drove the Rig to the Shilo Inn at the Portland Airport and TJ dropped us off with the luggage. We checked in and sorted and organized our clothes one more time so we could leave a suitcase and not pack as much. (We still packed way too many clothes). TJ took the Rig to the Storage facility, unhooked, and arrived back at the Shilo Inn at about 2am.

Staying at the Shilo Inn Airport Hotel was a good idea since we had to be up at 5am the following morning to get to the airport to catch our plane to Hawaii and we needed a place to keep our truck during our time away.

April 16 – May 4 – Kona, Hawaii

We had two separate reservations for our trip home. Jenson and Jewels going on one flight and TJ and Lukas on another. Side note: TJ’s parents had the same flight at TJ and Lukas. They offered to give up their seats on an Alaskan Airline flight from Kona, Hawaii to Redmond, Oregon.

They both received $800 cash, a convertible rental car, a hotel room, all food covered, and they scheduled them for the following night which added 1 ½ days to their trip not to mention $1600 cash! Wowza! Benefit of being flexible with your travel plans. You can offer to give up your spots for perks. These were some serious perks.

TJ and Lukas had many delays on their leg from Seattle to Portland due to nasty weather. They were supposed to arrive at 9:45pm but it was closer to midnight before they arrived at the Shilo Inn. Jenson and Jewels returned to Portland airport as scheduled coming through San Francisco, caught the shuttle, and arrived at the hotel around 1:30am on May 5th. We all slept and woke up early the next morning.

On May 5th TJ dropped me off at my Organizing client’s home and I worked with her for 8 hours while TJ and the boys ran errands, picked up the dog, visited doctors, and went to my parent’s. We picked up the used car that we purchased and dropped it off at a storage facility to be picked up again sometime soon. (Not sure when this will happen). We said our goodbyes to my parents and headed to the storage facility to pick up our Rig. We hooked up and started on our way to Vernon, Canada. (It is about 10pm now on May 5th)

May 5th – Drove north from Portland from 10pm – 1am – Flat Tire on the rig so we pulled over for the night in a Walmart that had a tire shop. We got it patched in the morning. The boys learned how to remove and put on a tire.

















May 6-7 – Driving to Vernon, Canada. No problem at the border. Boys are 15 and we used their birth certificates. We will need to get them passports when they turn 16 and mine expires this year as well.



May 7th we arrived in Vernon, Canada and stayed with our friends until May 13th.




May 13th we drove back down to the states and checked in at an RV park in Coeur de Alene, Idaho where TJ’s sister and family were visiting for Hunter’s soccer tournament. TJ’s parents also happened to be visiting so we saw both families and watched Hunter’s soccer game.



We were set to check out on May 14th, Mother’s Day, and start our trip to Boston, MA to see my niece graduate.

May 14th, We were all packed up and ready to bring in our slide so we could get on the road. When Jenson pushed the button, the slide didn’t move and we heard what sounded like a faucet spraying. Our hydraulic hose had a hole in it and was spraying hydraulic fluid everywhere. No one would come and fix it on a Sunday so we were stuck for another day. Luckily, May 15th at 4pm someone arrived and fixed our slide. We were back on the road around 8pm that day.

*During days of extended driving, we pull over to sleep in Truck stops, Walmart’s, or Rest Stops. You need to make sure that it is ok before you just pull over and stay. Some Walmart’s don’t let you stay overnight. You will see signage. You may also find that some Truck stops at gas stations are full so have a backup plan. Also, make sure you have water in your storage tank so you can wash up. Some of the truck stops have showers (We haven’t used those, we use our own very quickly) If your grey tank fills up on an extended trip, you can also find locations where you can dump; both grey and black tank. (I am not knowledgeable in this area as TJ is the lucky one that deals with this part so if you have questions, I can refer them to him)

May 15 – Coeur de Alene, Idaho – Missoula, Montana

May 16 – Missoula, Montana – Dickinson, North Dakota

May 17 – Dickinson, North Dakota – Duluth, Minnesota

May 18 – Duluth, Minnesota – Sault Ste Marie, Michigan

May 19 – Sault Ste Marie, Michigan – Rochester, New York (We took a short cut through Canada and back into the United States right around Niagara Falls.) This trip across the border, they did a full search on the Canadian side. We had to pull over, get out, open our rig, open the slides, while 4 people searched our entire rig. It didn’t take long and we were back on the road again.  Make sure to always tell them the truth about what you have on board. We don’t smoke, drink, or do drugs so we always say no, but I think they probably assume we have some alcohol. Nope. Not in our rig! I think they also search rigs that come from states where Marijuana is legal. We have Oregon plates. Make sure to have your dog records as well. We didn’t have any trouble getting back into the United States.

May 20 – Rochester, New York – Cape Cod RV Resort Massachusetts – Cape Cod RV Resort is affiliated with the Thousand Trails Membership that we own. We purchased this membership over 5 years ago and we are still benefiting from the membership today! We arrived on a beautifully sunny day, got settled in, and took nice long warm showers.


May 21 – Erika’s Graduation in Boston, Massachusetts. It was exciting to see my sister, her husband and 2 of their 3 daughters. Erika graduated from Boston University in Health Studies and plans on coming back for an advanced degree in Physical Therapy in the fall. The graduation was wonderful and then we all enjoyed lunch at a local favorite restaurant.

May 22 – 25 – Visited with some business connections in Stoughton, Massachusetts

May 25 – May 30 – Wells, Maine for Memorial Day weekend – Today is Sunday, May 28th and I wanted to write this blog post so I would have a reference of our travels over the last month and I share it with you in case you are interested.

TJ and I are so grateful and amazed that we are living this lifestyle. It is not always easy but we are blessed to have family that invite us to celebrations, sports, and visits at their home and vacations. We have met so many wonderful people on the road that have become our lifetime friends. I want to be of support to any of you that may be interested in this type of lifestyle or creating a lifestyle that allows for flexibility in time and place. We call this lifestyle living.


Featured Families – The Suda Family

Featured Families – The Suda Family

Hi! I’m Jewels Muller and I am starting a new blog series called Featured Families. My family and I have been traveling for over 5 years now and we have had the privilege of meeting many interesting families across the country. I want to introduce you to them as well. As you will see in the video and photos below, we are visiting a farm. We met the Suda family in Grafton, North Dakota while TJ was working the Sugar Beet Harvest. I attended a yoga session at the local spa and everyone told me that I needed to meet Dawn Keeley. Dawn invited me to a community gathering where I was introduced to Amy. Amy and her family invited us over for dinner one night and while we were there, I decided to start the Featured Family series of interviews. The Suda’s were so gracious and without any planning on their part, they invited us to video and ask them questions regarding their life on the farm. Let’s get to know them and what farm life is like.

Here is the most recent family photo of the Suda’s! John, Amy, Sydney-9, Noah-7, Jack-4, Isaak-1 Trigger-1, Sugar-6 months. Evan  is the newborn below. Let’s meet the entire family via the YouTube Video Link below.









Tell us more about your businesses, Amy.

I am not sure how much I talked about Isagenix in the video-my plans are to include all of my business ventures on my website

What we are most excited about currently is being part of the launch of a new health & wellness technology product. It is wearable technology; like a Fitbit on steroids! There’s nothing on the market like it right now as far as wearable technology goes. New to the US as of September. We are looking for people who see the vision and would like to partner with us in launching it. Anyone interested can check out more information at

I am also in the process of starting a Beauty on The Go business venturing into providing further aesthetic services, injectables and eventually a skin care line right from my website!🤗

As a fellow entrepreneur and people open to all things new, exciting, and advanced we want to expose you to a new opportunity! We are excited about this so if you are interested don’t wait..the time is now for this type of product! It’s new to the US as of September so great potential. Interested in taking a look at a short video to learn more? #wearabletechnology

Instagram, Twitter, Facebook,

We would love to thank the Suda Family for a wonderful dinner, amazing hospitality, and their willingness to be open and share their lives with us.

Much love to all of you,



The Beauty in Flowers that Warms My Heart

Every few years we are blessed by my inlaws who invite us to join them in Kona, Hawaii. There are many things that I really love.

1. Being warm

2. Swimming in the ocean

3. Being with family

4. The vibrant colors and fragrant flowers

I snapped some photos today that I want to share. I love stopping to smell the flowers and take in all of their delicate intricacies. So beautiful. 

Happy Saturday ♡♡♡
