In 2015, I decided to push past my comfort zone + explore the idea of Etsy coaching or course creation for Handmade sellers as an additional option for my business future.
And for many moons I sat on that glorious dream.
Well, I'm proud to say that after almost 3 years of soul searching + fleshing out this new direction, I've finally turned my dreamy idea into reality...because the doors to my new course are open!
🎉 Hello! Print On-Demand 🎉
...where I'm giving away the EXACT systems, processes, tools, and techniques that I use in my own highly successful print on-demand business, Paper Berry Press.
Y’all! Right now I couldn't feel more giddy, nervous, aligned, and down-right honored to produce this passion project!
Paper Berry Press will always be my business baby, but I'm excited to have an additional way to connect with other handmade sellers, share what I know, and help support their journey!
I would have rolled all my oils on me to get going this morning if I could. Holding it together....one oil at a time. 😆😂🤣 Happy Wednesday y'all!
I can't believe tomorrow is already Thanksgiving! I am so thankful for everything I have. That is a big part of being happy. Look for the positive. Look for what awesome things you DO have and be thankful for those. You can still work towards the things you want without being sad you don't have them yet. I am so grateful for so many things. I'm thankful for my amazing husband who always has my back (even when my idea 💭may be a bit out there and sound crazy, like flying to Disney💥 for the day), my beautiful kids who work so hard to do well and who are always proud of me and my accomplishments, my incredible parents who are ALWAYS there to help out. I'm thankful for my job that I love so much. I love how it gives me the time freedom to do what I want when I want (like spend the day with Shaindy today because she's off from school) it allows me to travel and work from ANYWHERE. I get to work with an amazing team of people (love you all) and together we transform people's lives (I'm always looking for more partners ❤)
I'm grateful for my mentors who helped me get healthy and help me help others. They're always there to help me whether it's in my own health journey or a client's. Heck I'm thankful I found a way to lose 46lbs! I love how I feel so much more energized and confident. I'm thankful for G-d and all the beautiful things He gave me. I'm thankful for so much it's too much to write lol!

Oh, you guys! I don’t do the offers thing in my feed very often, but these next few days worth of sales are kinda going to be a big deal. If wellness is on your wish list this year, this is your MOMENT. For real.
If I’m being honest, it’s been hard to figure out how to position myself on social media when it comes to sharing about Young Living. I’m a pastor of a local church and, to some, it seems odd that someone who is actively in ministry also (gasp!) SELLS a product to people. I can tell you that I never actively sell to my congregation. I’ve had people approach me and I help them, but I’d never use my pastoral relationships as a “network” to grow my business. That’s just unethical and kinda gross in every way. So there’s that.
But here’s why I DO EDUCATE on wellness and offer Young Living oils and products for sale...here’s why I DO LEAD a leadership team within the company: Because I believe “our part” in wellness involves stewarding the health we were given by God. One of the ways I’ve been taught, as a certified holistic health coach, to steward health is to be mindful and prayerful of what I put in, on and around my body.
Young Living offers tons of products we use every single day that not only do not HARM our bodies, but these products actually can SUPPORT wellness. That’s a double whammy in a good way. We also have a community where you can learn how to use everything so you’re not just this person with high hopes who has NO IDEA how to actually integrate this stuff into your wellness plan. We have a fun, oily “connect group” called Oiliversity where you can find support, education and feedback as you learn how to use these tools.
Young Living - like practically every other business in America - will have a sale this Black Friday and Cyber Monday. Wellness TOOLS will be on SALE, y’all! If you’re wondering if this could be a great way to support your family’s health and you’re thinking maybe it’s time to try “the oils,” be watching my Stories over the next few days. I’ll be sharing all the deals up there and also explaining how these things help to steward health NATURALLY. Sound good Then I’ll see you over there! Xoxo - Erica 🦃 ❤️ 🌲
Today was a VERY BIG WIN 🙏🏻 Walking into my specialists room to hear him say the words:
“Go & Live your life, you’re results have all come back negative” has made things just a little extra special this week. 💕
Tonight consisted of 🍷& Chinese takeaway 🥢
Celebrating Health and Wellness tonight ❤️
“Make time to celebrate your accomplishments, no matter how big or small.” - Unknown
When you’ve finished a round of a program, it’s easy to focus on everything that’s left to be done. You can lose sight where you were 3-12 weeks ago. You need to remember to honor yourself for everything you have done to move forward! *Take time to reflect on how far you’ve come. How have you changed physically, mentally, and spiritually Are you stronger, leaner, more confident, happier *Acknowledge your success. Allow it to further build your confidence! *Stay motivated. Reward yourself for a job well done! *Get happy. Pat yourself on the back and release the hormones that cause you to feel happy and motivated! *Share the joy. Talk with others about your journey and inspire them!

It’s funny how as you get older you look back at old photos and realise that life will never be like that moment in time, ever again.
This photo of a fresh faced girl was actually only taken around 3 years ago. My talented friend @athenagrace met me in Balmain and then we went on an adventure, hoping to find the perfect photo for my EP cover. This particular shot didn’t make the cut because it was just a bit too ‘pretty’, but I still love it.
I look so happy and full of hope.
I had just found out I was pregnant with Gram a few months earlier (unexpected amazing surprise) and hadn’t told anyone yet except for my family. So I remember my jeans being super tight and feeling nauseous the whole time. But I was just so happy to finally be pursuing my dream of making my own record.
And that dream continues. I think that a lot of people burn out quickly in the music industry. They make one or two records and things don’t go exactly as they’ve planned, or they have unrealistic expectations and their career doesn’t take off the way they expected, and so they just give up.
I’ve been in the music industry since I was 8 years old and not only have I never wanted to be a huge star, the idea actually repulses me a little bit. I love writing good solid songs. I love performing them for people who care about good music. And I love meeting other musicians who care about the same things. I don’t expect to sell a million records or to do a world tour, but what I do know is that I’m in it for the long haul. Because once music is in your blood, it never lets you go ❤️✨

What are your dreams How do you plan on achieving them
Nothing good comes easy, how much more something great. Working a job isn't easy, yet you wake up early, brace the traffic, pray against robbery and accidents only to work hard and make someone else's dream come true.
I remember when I started my restaurant biz, the customers just weren't coming in and my bills were pilling. I had to put my fear and shame aside and took to the streets sharing my flyers. It didn't produce the results immediately, but I had faith. Even when they started trickling in, I had to promote my menu to increase sales. This still wasn't enough cos I felt like I was still working a job. If I did not open my mouth, my sales dropped. So I dug deep into my networking experience and brought it to the table, I decided to train my staff on how to duplicate me on promoting our products.
With every member of my team working like me, it became easier and my sales is on a continuous increase. We aren't there yet, but we definitely are better off than when we started.
My restaurant biz is now on autopilot, giving me ample time for my family and an opportunity to look into other biz ideas, which is why I quit my job to start it in the first place.
This is why I love being an entrepreneur, this is why I love network marketing. You need to create a system where you can make money through leverage. This way, even when I'm not working, I still know I'm making a little money and this thought helps me sleep better at night
Not everyone is born with amazing sales skills, but it's a quality everyone shld attain to learn. Applying my experiences from network marketing (part time biz) into my restaurant biz(main biz), has indeed produced amazing results. In network marketing, you never loose. Las Las you end up with amazing products and a well of knowledge to draw from.

Ven's Kitchen: Ikan Bilis Powder
With feedback, comes improvement.
My first batch of Ikan Bilis Powder for a friend in which she sieved my powder and sent me this picture. She said she doesnt mind the coarse bits and uses them for herself, and the sieved powder for her daughter.
Because my Ikan Bilis Powder includes the entire fish (head+bones) and I don't sieve it, leaving all the goodness intact, it is inevitable to have coarse bits.
However, since then, I have invested in a stronger and more expensive grinder, one that is able to produce an even smoother powder as compared to 4 months back when I first started the business.
A few benefits of Ikan Bilis includes improving heart, digestive, skin, eye and bone health, aiding in tissue and cell repair and has anti-inflammatory effects.
*Three tablespoons of anchovies will give you about 180mg of calcium, which is about one-fifth of an adult's daily calcium requirement.

So its the Herbalife Tropical Fruit Shake cold blended with a sprinkle of Ven's Kitchen Organic Kailan Powder! Cheers!
Purchasing a fresh batch of Organic Kailan from a Local Organic Farm coming Monday! PM me to pre-order! 💛
Also known as the Chinese Broccoli or the Chinese Kale, this leafy vegetable possesses natural antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties because of its high nutrient levels. To name a few, kailan contains beta carotene, vitamin k, vitamin c, lutein, zeahanthin and high calcium levels. These help in reducing risk of cancers, cholesterol, diabetes, anemia, constipation, improve skin, eyes and brain health.
