It’s been a long time

Hello all!  Let me take a minute to blow the cob webs off they keys here 🤣

It seems like everytime I get back going with this blog I mess around and get distracted again.  I swear I’m trying to turn over a new leaf (but let’s be honest something else will probably pop up to get in between us).

Anywho, my update will be a brief one for now.

The most exciting is that I’ve been accepted to medical school!! Yea suck on that mcat! Someone out there actually wants me to practice medicine! 👩🏾‍⚕️ So yea.  I’ll be starting my journey this summer in the naturopathic program at Bastyr University in Seattle and I’m uber excited about that!  <explanation on what all that means probably later tonight> #2: natural beans is going in…a direction  (lol) I’m definitely learning “the biz” and seeing what works for me and what doesn’t as I try to get my hustle on.  {btw if you’re reading this; I’m still selling 4oz jars for $10.  You can find me on etsy at http://www.etsy.com/shop/naturalbeans and follow me on IG @Natural_Beans }

lets see I think that’s actually about it for the update.  I’m sure I’ll think of something else I left out.  But for now that’s the tea.

**happy reading ladies and germs**

 

Selling my Brand

I decided to create this Instagram page to better market my products that I’m selling.  The follower count may be low but the word is slowly getting out.  

For anyone that doesn’t yet know, what I’m selling is my own homemade whipped body butter (whipped shea butter).  Yes.  Just like tons of other people out here.  Lol.  The one thing for sure that I know sets my product aside from the rest is that it was made by me.  

Sure the ingredients differ from other butters out there and of course it was made with love.  But ive been thinking recently trying to think of good reasons for anyone to want to buy my product in particular.  I need an angle!  Being natural isn’t going to be enough in a time when everyone is jumping on the train and doing stuff for themselves.  

A friend interviewed me the other day for her blog to help advertise my butter and one response stuck out the most.  “My product and my brand are of a humble variety”.  While it would be awesome to sell every jar I make, I’m more happy just selling one or even giving them to family members for free.  I’m not here to try and get rich, I just saw a need for something and proceeded to act.  

The Ethnic Cleanzing of Amerika

It began over a decade ago – subtle, quiet and unnoticeable.The media played it up as the result if the drug epidemic The public accepted it with the belief they would be safer. Ten years later, the state and federal governments continue to laud its accomplishment and urge expansion of the cleansing process. with over 800,000 Black men and women in jails and prisons, the ethnic cleansing of America has become an economic strategy of Wall Street, with private prisons on the stock market.

Although FBI statistics proclaim a decline in crime, prison construction has become a growing multi-billion dollar business. Black men and women have become commodities in an industry directly representative of slavery. The 13 th Amendment to the-U.S. Constitution (“Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime … shall exist within the United States .. “) actually indicates that…
