There are many reasons I can't stand shopping. One of them is the fragrance salespeople ready to spray me with whatever their latest concoction may be. I have nothing against entrepreneurs, as I'm one myself. In fact, I'm not asking them to go away because they have just as much right to be there as I do. I'm just hoping they'll gain some common courtesy and compassion.
Fact: Some people do not like to wear chemicals
I am one of these people. There's a reason I am not wearing your scent. It's because I make all of my beauty products myself from nature. If it's not possible, I only choose natural beauty products. I don't want your scent. I don't care who may be wearing it already or how unique it may be. If it's a chemical, it isn't coming in contact with my skin for a reason. Don't spray me without my permission.
Fact: Some people have allergies
I am highly allergic to several things, many of which are chemicals. This includes fragrance. In fact, fragrance is one of my worst allergies. So unless you want to pay for my meds and possibly a hospital bill, don't spray me without my permission. Some people have even worse allergies than I do and may have an even worse reaction. Don't spray perfumes on people without asking first.
Fact: Some people just don't want to be bothered
Even my friends who enjoy perfume hate being bombarded with fragrances at every turn. By the end of the day, you come out smelling like you bathed in something unidentifiable and grotesque. The blends are really not very pretty. And what if they already had on a fragrance they wanted and you ruined it by covering it with yours? Again, don't spray people without asking first.
Did I mention not to spray fragrances on people without asking them?
Please? Thank you.

Welcome to "Momtrepreneur Moments". Being a business-savvy mom provides quite an interesting life.
There are moments where you just have to stop and laugh at things that happen with the kids, with the business, or even with both at the same time.
There are also moments when you need to reevaluate strategy, pat yourself on the back and pay it forward, or even times when you need to just break down and cry.
But in the end, it is all worth it - for both the business and family side. Join me as I discuss the ups and downs of being a mother and entrepreneur all at once.
With me, you'll laugh, cry, scream in frustration, learn, and teach all at the same time. Such is the life of a mom in the business world. Parenthood and business both teach life-long lessons, some tough and some so simple you'll wonder why you never realized them before.
