Thank you for taking time out of your busy day to join me here. I haven’t been much of a writer since elementary school, so bear with me while I ease back into it.
I suppose the best first post for me is to tell you who I am. My full name is Morgan Ague. Growing up a lot of my friends just called me Mo’ and over the last few years I have slowly started to use it in my personal branding and on-line presence.
I am a 40 year old mother, wife, daughter, small business owner, and server/bartender on the side. I like to think I am pretty down to earth and easy going. I try not to take life too seriously (which can be bad at my age) and love to have fun. Now fun for me is to have a drink and hang out with friends and family. I’ve had the privilege of travelling a lot in the last 7 years where I get to do things and be with people I love. I love margaritas and most alcohol. I drink because I like it, not because I need it. I like enjoying a drink at the end of the night while I work or relax on the computer and watch one of my favorite shows.
I will tell more about my life and how I got where I am now in future posts, so for now I will try to keep it who I am NOW.
I have a small business. I am a Independent Consultant with a company called Perfectly Posh. Yes, it is one of those companies – but it is so much more than you think! I worked in the corporate world for quite a few years when I started dabbling in the Direct Sales world and fell in love. The company I’m with now isn’t the only DS business that I’ve had, but it is the one I am going to stick with. Because my family still depends on a certain income from me, I also work part-time as a server/bartender to make ends meet. Hopefully one day soon my Posh business will be enough and I will be able to focus on it 100%.
Because I tend to get off topic I am going to explain me by telling you about my categories.
Family Clover represents my family and a four leaf clover. My husband and I have been together since I was 14 and he was 17! We have a very unique relationship that works for us – obviously since we’re still together. We have two wonderful kids – Ava just turned 16 (O’ BOY!) and Gage is 13. Being a parent is the most rewarding, frustrating, hardest thing I’ve ever done. I seriously think if kids were born as teenagers people would definitely not have more than 1! We also have 4 fur babies – our lives would not be complete without them. I am also very close to my Mom and step-dad whom are always there for us. The four leaf clover is something very near and dear to me and I use it in all aspects of my life as a symbol to remember someone very important to me – and no, I’m not Irish. My second post goes into more detail why a four leaf clover.
Comfy Couch. Now this one is more my personality. I am super chill and laid back. Sometimes I feel like I’m too laid back, but am a true believer that life is too short to get worked up about things we cannot control. I love all things soft, comfy, and cozy. My favorite place in my house is the big oversized chaise part of our leather sectional sofa. This is also where I have my work station set up which is probably both good and bad. This is also our families central location so I get to be in the center of everything when its going on. An ideal Friday night would be chilling on the couch, watching a scary movie, and drinking a margarita! This is also where my business comes in because I sell amazing, natural-based bath and body products for a company that believes in simply pampering everyone because we all deserve it! I will DEFINITELY delve into this deeper very soon!
Fright Fest at the movies… well this one is interesting, lol! I absolutely LOVE horror movies. I’m not talking sci-fi or ghost stories – I’m talking about good ‘ol people killing people (I promise – I’m not psychotic). This unusual obsession started probably at an earlier age than it should have. I think it was 4th grade when I decided to put posters – yes, those super big pieces of paper that we hang on our walls so we can express ourselves – on my ceiling of the best horror movie villain – Freddy Krueger! I guess that explains why some of my friends were afraid to stay the night, haha!
Beanz & JJ – well these are two of our four dogs. I love all four of them, but these two are Momma’s girls! JJ is my baby even though she is 10 now. She is a Shih-tzu/Havanese mix. She is tiny – only 8 lbs and is the best snuggler ever! But she is pretty skidish – like scared of absolutely everything! Beanz is our newest fur baby and is still a puppy even though she is our biggest fur baby ever! Neither my husband or I had ever had a dog bigger than 20 lbs and last year Ava was on a kick that we needed a big dog. Because I’m such a sucker for any dog, I started looking and we fell in love with the Australian Shepherd breed. Which is exactly what Beanz is! She is 50 lbs of fluffy fur and a ball of energy! Seriously the happiest dog I have ever seen! More to come – she is a hoot!
Shop – well this is a link back to my website where you can learn more about my Posh business and the products I sell. I’d LOVE for you to take a look and find out just how amazing Posh is!
Fill Your Basket is all about my love and passion to make gift baskets, bundles, and more! I definitely don’t think of myself as a crafty person, but when it comes to shopping for the perfect items, gifts, or anything else you’d want to shop for – I’m your gal! I LOVE to shop and am damn good at it. The other part of that is I can put together a pretty kick ass basket for anyone with anything! I will share baskets I’ve done in the past, how they were done and where to find items I have used in them.
So there ya have it! That is a super small snippet of Mo’. I can’t wait to share a lot more with you soon!
