I have had a few clients when emailing me asking where on earth I get my inspiration , energy from and just general questions about me and my background. So I thought I would do a blog post about this.
I do though have a About Me on my website for anyone wanting to have a little read further :)
So here we go.....grab a cuppa , settle back into your chosen seating decor and enjoy!
First up I want too start with this quote:
“There is no telling how many miles you will have to run while chasing a dream.” - Unknown This is SOOOO me....I cant tell you how many hours, how many hairs that have turned grey / fallen out over starting Overall Being many many years ago in 2003.
Overall Being has a lot to offer the shopper from home. It is an online business which offers Personalised and Unique Gifts, Massage and other interesting tips along the way.
Overall Being was very different back when it started in 2003. It was started as a business offering a range of alternative & conventional Massage treatments to clients in their own home. Being a mother I needed flexibility and the ease of promoting my business without too much time away from my family. Having this online allows me to work from home around such.
I have a thirst for natural therapies and alternative ways. Hence why I have so many various techniques that I can fall back on. I feel giving alittle of you to help others brings joy and hope for humanity as a whole. It creates fabulous good energy which is what Overall Being is.
My Logo is mainly of a Lotus Flower. I think its quite fitting for this business and me as the owner cause my belief hence why it was chosen. The Lotus Flower is one of the most ancient and deepest symbols of our planet. It grows in muddy water and rises above the surface to bloom with remarkable beauty. At night the flower closes and sinks underwater, at dawn it rises and opens again. Untouched by the impurity, lotus symbolises the purity of heart and mind. Which is how I came up with the name. It represents long life, health, honor and good luck. All of what I live by and what I try to bring into Overall Being to every customer that graces the front door. I treat each client as if it is my first and last.
I have studied quite a number of various techniques which allows me to offer many ways of treating oneself to my clients, family/friends. Being a mother now of four boys( Alexander 1996, Nicholas 1998, Samuel 2002, Jack 2008), I required a fair amount of flexibility and am terrific at multitasking. No job or order is too big, I love a challenge when someone comes and says do you or can you do this?!
Overall Being has been offering since 2003 various techniques of Reiki, Kundalini, Aromatherapy, Massage Parties, Crystal Therapy, Massage techniques and online Reiki Courses. Along with crystal jewellery. I also have been doing Home Massage Boutique parties, which is always such a hit!!
When I became pregnant with our fourth son, I decided to take some “Hands on” time off. Putting my massage on hold for a moment, so I could enjoy being a new mum. Life certainly is busy, but so rewarding at the same time. I suffered unfortunately bad PND after having Jack which lead me to delve back into meditation and therapy to help heal my soul whilst using conventional methods as well.
Since having this time off it made me think about other ways of bringing joy into my life. Which is how Overall Being has grown to where it is today , offering various other products which some I outsource to other work at home businesses or have become a proud stockist for or some I hand make myself. To have one place to visit on the web makes it extremely easy for people to help give memorable gifts to those they love.
I now offer personalised and customised photo gifts for anyone seeking something of difference.
The fabric I use to make my quillows, blankets, Hot pack/Lavender Bags or cushions is imported and has been described as having hugs all around you when snuggled into one. Available in this are: quillows, cushions, pet beds and blankets of all sizes using the same fabric. But using your own style in the chosen pattern fabric. There are quite alot of various colours, patterns available.
I am a proud stockist for the amazing ever-lovable Zoobies. A plush toy "slash" cushion "slash" blanket...All in one. Perfect to take to bed, trips in car or to the shops. They come in two different sizes.
I love natural products. Products that I know what is in it. Putting things onto my skin with chemicals just diminishes the beauty eventually. I offer a range of Aromatherapy products aswell such as Blends, Colognes, Perfumes, Soaps, & Candles. I am also a proud stockist of Fresh Faced Skincare & Mineral Makeup. Which is a 100% Australian owned and made Natural product. But also Gaia.....the name speaks for itself.
Which leads me to LR Health and Beauty. These products are all natural and made using the wonderful healing ingredient of Aloe Vera. I am a consultant of such.
Along with the above....there is also a range of jewellery which is all handmade. Using handmade Kaolin beads, crystals and such which has been sourced from overseas. With the Crystal Bracelets I can also add Reiki Healing into each piece as an added special touch for the giver.
Digital Scrapbooking is also available at Overall Being, whereby I use the clients photos to create a everlasting leather bound album, filled with memories. These albums are perfect for the coffee table or as a gift to someone. There is many different sizes available and also have created a Digital Scrapbook page and had it printed onto a Canvas to hang on the wall. They are quite stunning and highly unique. Even creating Invitations, Place cards, Thank you cards, etc...I also now have Photo Gifts / Canvases / Albums available. But if you after just a page....then that is do able as well. These being digital are easily sent via email too. So this way you can choose who you use for printing.
There is a Gift Ideas page on Overall Being which highlights suggestions for the shopper. To allow them to see what is available on a website as a quick guide makes the whole shopping experience and visit to me more memorable and unique.
That is where the versatility comes into it and allows me to offer clients to “create” their very own gift basket. Each Basket can be tailored to the individual and anything can be added to it.
Overall Being has been running like this for the past 12mths and will continue to do so. I think having somewhere like this on the web adds love and flexibility. In this era we all need this!
There is also a gorgeous way of celebrating time together as people. Overall Being offers a Massage Boutique experience in the comfort of your own home. Offering many complimentary services to the host and discounts for the attendees. Perfect for hens nights/afternoons, Girl get togethers, baby showers and such.
So as you can see Overall Being is exactly what the name says, incorporating Lifes pleasures into one spot.
"Life is not about the moments we breathe, but the moments that take our breath away"
So as you can see Overall Being is filled with many aspects for anyone any age. I do try to add Reiki to every piece before sending it as an added extra to the receiver.
I hope you have enjoyed this little insight into my world and always know I am available via email or phone.
Until my next blog.....enjoy every moment!
Today I am off to watch my second born son play school footy in their grand final...Yay go St James :))
Regards (Love & Light)
