How to stay positive when CNN says “Shithole” 36 times

I believe I am a fairly positive person who tries not to complain.  What good does it do?  It only spreads misery when a positive word would make another feel positive as well.

Being the positive person I strive to be, I rarely watch mainstream media nor do I spend much time on Facebook.  Facebook is a time and mind-suck that I can use doing other things, like marketing and advertising.  I’m constantly asked if I saw something on Facebook.  My answer is usually ‘No, but did my sale ad pop up on your feed?’

Yesterday I went to my business Facebook page and on the right hand side was a “newsworthy” (or so Facebook thought) article on President Trump saying “Shithole.”  Worse yet, it took 3 paragraphs to find out what he was referring to as the first two were taken up with the fact that he said that word.

Comparing him to LBJ, JFK and FDR would not win Trump the “Potty Mouth” award.  Bill Clinton even defined the word “is” and “sex” to children decades ago.  So why is the media running around shooting “shithole” like a pre-pubescent boy with his friends in a bathroom?

The answer is very simple.  Because You and I paid attention.  We stopped to click and read.  I’m someone who uses statistics to decide who, how and where to market my store to.  The stats on the clicks alone would lead me to believe that people want to read this.

So, how to stay positive when President Trump needs to take a bite of Lava Soap?  Shop on Ebay, Poshmark and Etsy of course!


Where everything is fit for a Queen


Priced for a Pauper





"If someone would have told me 10 years ago that I would be here today...." You hear that said a lot when someone is fulfilling an ambition they've had for years but never thought to act on it. I have been a full time reseller for a year. There have been ups, downs and a huge learning curve for me. Once I got a hang on the selling platforms, I explored other social media and ecommerce options. Currently, #JewelsForThePauper is on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and now BlogSpot. I have had this ambition, I knew I would be able to act on it at the right time. I feel so grateful to be able to do something I enjoy, be my own boss and bring in extra cash for our household. I am not sure where this blog is going to "go," but you have to have a start and today is the day!
