Flexi SPORT: Perfect Summer Hair Accessory!

We have a brand new product that launched on September 1, 2021!

The Flexi SPORT has been in research & development for years! It was first revealed to Stylists at our National Convention in 2018, and called the Flexi2. John has worked with engineers and product testers for even longer before that, trying to find the perfect materials that would hold up to the rigorous use of our amazing hair accessories.

What he came up with is a no-slip grip that’s perfect for high ponytails, active lifestyles, children, water activities… and just every day! (in fact, I’ve had one since July 2021 and my youngest has been wearing it pretty much 24/7 since then!)

This video features my oldest daughter using the Sport to make a low ponytail, which is what she does every. single. day.

Currently, the Sport is available in one size – Medium Flip Size… which can be used as a Medium, Small or Extra Small, so it is extremely versatile! Text the word SPORT to (254) 988-7217 for more information! But the Extra Flip Size (for medium through extra large) is in the testing phase!

It’s comfortable, no slip, grippy material – made with Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE), inside the 8 portion is a high tensile strength spring steel (the same material that the wire in our Flips are made with), high grade polycarbonate for the sliding pin. All parts are latex free and there is no exposed metal.

It’s 100% waterproof! Perfect for swimming, boating and other water sports!

Color options will be changing seasonally!

And the price is pretty sweet, too – $15 for one -OR- a 3-pack of all 3 colors for $39! The first run of these clips sold out in THREE days! More colors were released, and those sold out! Check my website for the most current colors available!

Watch as my Sponsor tests the Flexi Sport against the Pony-O:

Key points of warning: TPE is a fantastic material in it’s durability, flexibility, and more! However it is susceptible to heat. You’re going to want to make sure to check your pockets in the laundry room. One of our Stylists accidentally washed, and dried, her Sport. It was not good. (Many of us have washed and dried the original Flexi-Clip with little to no damage.) Also, I live in Texas, where the heat in the car can become deadly in just a few minutes. Your new Flexi Sport would likely not survive that either.

Colors available will vary.

2021: The Year of the Gratitude Journal

What are you thankful for? That 2020 is over!

No, seriously, think about what you’re thankful for! This is my focus for 2021. Living with a spirit of gratitude changes your life, but it’s not something that comes easy for most people. We have to be intentional about it. That’s why I’ve started a gratitude journal.

Gratitude Journal from Step Into Success

My 2021 Planner came with a small gratitude journal, pictured above, but there’s lots of places you can get one of these, or you can just use a spiral notebook. I find it easiest to write in mine every night before going to bed. Just a sentence or two is enough. Here’s some prompts for your daily entries:

  • Today I’m grateful for…
  • A person I’m grateful for is…
  • Something in nature I’m grateful for is…
  • The best thing that happened today is…
  • Something that made me smile today is…
  • I’m looking forward to….
  • A hobby I’m grateful for is…
  • It’s important to practice gratitude because…
  • A complement I’ve received lately is…
  • I’m grateful for this friendship…

You see? It’s not difficult to get started. If you need additional help, simply google “gratitude journal prompts” and you’ll have a huge list to get you started!

As a woman of faith, I also use those sale notification emails as an opportunity to practice gratefulness, and as a prayer prompt. I thank God for the clients he brings my way, that he prompts them to remember me when shopping, and that he would bless them. Gratefulness, therefore, takes our minds off ourselves.

Research at Harvard Medical School found that practicing gratefulness makes you more optimistic, feel better about your life, exercise more, and have fewer visits to the doctor, even! I hear that some doctors are even recommending keeping a gratitude journal to their patients as another method to improve their overall health!

As far as business goes, there are many reasons why being grateful is good for business. People enjoy doing business with grateful people. Being grateful takes your focus off of yourself and onto your clients, which drives you to better customer service. Grateful people attract grateful people, which is a good place to be in life as well as in business. Need more reasons? Just google, “does being grateful increase sales,” then pause for a moment and be thankful for the clients you already have and the information you are learning.

Here are some examples of gratitude journals, but keep in mind you can also use a spiral notebook:

The Lord has done great things for us,
And we are glad.

Psalm 126: 3

Fill your home with beautiful reminders of the Grace you’ve been given and the Gratitude that you have!
