Do you remember the Fabulous New You Conference I attended a few weeks ago? Well truth be told I almost didn’t go. Leading up to that conference I wanted to go but wasn’t sure I could make it happen. Despite my reluctance I decided to go because of two things, 1) I had a feeling it would give me the mental boost I needed and 2) I might meet potential Fellow Okies. And you know what?? Both of those things happened. I met Ms. Margo Gianos at that conference and was in awe. I spoke with her briefly about the business, Honestly Margo, and was very impressed. She mentioned that she knew from a young age that she wanted to own her own business. Margo is professional, friendly and very knowledgeable about her product. I was a little nervous about asking her to be a Fellow Okie, she’s a busy young woman after all, but to my surprise she was for it. Read further to see what Honestly Margo is all about.

When school gets difficult and I get busy with soccer that is when I get unmotivated. I always want to grow it (the business), it’s just I might go to bed early that night instead of reply to emails. I always do the work that I need to though and I never really get very unmotivated. I just have to look at where I want my company to be and work on getting it there.
