Who is Mo’?

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.me pouring

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.the fam!

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!beanz jj

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.  ava goody bag

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!
