you to go into business for yourself?
1. Having Breast Cancer is what led me into this path of natural
skin care. It's so many products that has harsh chemicals, or
words you cant no pronounce on the label, they made me wonder what
I am choosing to put on my skin, the skin is like a sponge and in
26 seconds your skin can absorb products applied to the skin into
the bloodstream! So what you put on your skin can matter just as
much as what you put in your body. That's how HER2 Beauty Bar was
2. My kids, I have been a single mom for a long time, 2 weeks
before their dad passed way he told me, One thing i have always
known about you, is that you can do anything you put your mind to,
and that has resonated with me ever since, my kids who are now in
college motivates me and helps with words of encouragement,
helping and attending when I worked at vendor shows, the
encouragement and strength the breast cancer treatment process.
Anyone you publicly want to thank?
