A Herbalife day out

During the frenzy the leads to Christmas the last thing on your mind REALLY is being healthy and watching what goes in that hole in your face as we count down to 25th...unless your husband is a personal trainer. That is why I'm writing this sat in my hotel room at the Park Inn Heathrow watching planes taking off to sunnier climates and to be honest rather than the cold grey day I can see out the window, in my head, I'm seeing palm trees and blue sea..

I spent most of Saturday in a conference room, listening to numerous members of Herbalife talk about their fortunes and amazing lifestyles that have been made possible through them working for 'the Herbalife family'. There has been a lot of clapping and standing when various speakers take to the stage, I've never heard Tina Turner's 'The Best' played so often - which speaks volumes as I work for a commercial radio station.. Yet despite the Americanism of the presentations, I can't help but admire the passion in which these people are speaking. Many are from humble backgrounds and can now boast six figure salaries. I know money doesn't buy happiness but it gives you options and as a result choices can be easier.

I do believe we are sceptical of others success, we say we admire entrepreneurs, self made men and women.. Yet we all too often assume it will never happen to me, or assume that the person in question was privileged in some way. When you hear people openly tell you how they made their mega bucks and also how YOU TOO can have a piece of the pie...well what do you do.. TAKE IT!

I'm only writing in capitals, as having heard a lot of this from my husband, who is already working as a distributor and has been for a little while now, he wanted me to see if for myself and I now get why - I'm impressed. You can't help but be, when you see the pictures of the far flung places people are travelling, on all expenses paid holidays. Yes i keen thinking of the movie ' The Game' but they call the business a game, so who am i to judge.

So I'm going to head into Christmas with a slightly smug spring in my step. Not only will I watch what goes in that hole in my face as I don't want to star Jan thinking 'oh my god, my thighs' any more than in already do. But now the pair of us will be starting 2013 with a pretty exciting shared vision.. The pool, the helicopters, the big house we've dreamt about could all be possible...and I'm never been materialistic but hey, if it's out there for the taking, I'll have a go.

A Rabbi once said it takes a real strong character to accept how brilliant they can become, because once you do it's a lot to live up to. You certainly have to be in the right place to take this kind of information on board but when you hear people honestly share their success you it's infectious...

What's to lose

December 13th - lucky for me..

I know it's not a Friday, but it's the 13th, it's freezing, Christmas is nearly hear and once again I've got far too over excited buying presents and spent too much money - but hey ho, you can't take it with you as they say!

So I'm determined to start 2013 shouting loud. My name is Natalie and despite writing a blog for my work and attempting to get one going in the past, I'm going to make a point of sticking to this one. I've just had a very productive meeting with my pal Matt Bigg who is the calmest man in St Albans and is helping 'culminate' my different strings to my bow to hopefully get things rocking and a rolling for me. 

The things is - to many it seems like everything is sorted, I present a daily breakfast radio show for Heart Home Counties - Mon to Friday from 6am.. it's fun, getting up at 4am isn't but I love the fact that i have a laugh for my job. My problem is I want more.. I want to be doing more voiceover work which is something else I do, I want to make a great regular podcast about the going's on in St Albans which is where I live. I've started doing this with another pal - Ellie who has a great blog called Style in my City and in time I'll get better at linking everyone to this blog. 

My problem is I'm incredibly impatient and I don't read things through properly, which means I don't fully take on information.. so often, I don't quite get it... I almost do.. 

I think I cover this well but if you imagine a swan gliding beautifully on the lake in in Verulamium Park - underneath it's legs are going crazy.. that's how my mind is. 

I got married 3 months ago, and had a wonderful wedding and honeymoon. I'm very proud of our Mad Hatter wedding, as it was wicked fun, despite being a slight 'mare' to organise. Now my hubby and I are trying to make our mark with our various business ventures. He wants to help people get their nutrition sorted and stay in shape - more of that to come on here no doubt. But for now it's all about me. 

I am wanting to use this blog to attract more interest in audio - whether it's me doing a voiceover for you or helping your website stand out by having audio snippets for customers / clients to listen to.. or if you've got an interesting story to tell and we can make it into a podcast.. these are all things I'm wanting to achieve and I'm determined to stop talking about all this and make it happen in 2013. 

Until the next time ta ta for now x
