Once upon a time a girl bought a Dollar Coffee Club. She was excited because she loves coffee and special drinks, and this company actually offered all healthy varieties at very reasonable prices. “What a fantastic opportunity to introduce people to delicious drinks that actually offer great health benefits!” thought the girl.
She and her husband prayed about what they had learned. She researched the ingredients, experienced wonderful results after just a few days of drinking the beverages herself, and she looked forward to the opportunity to tell her friends about the wonderful ways these products could benefit people’s health! And so she started telling her friends. All the while, she prayed for wisdom, discernment, and guidance.
Emails flooded in as people wanted to learn more. Many said things like, “Healthy coffee? A drink to help regulate my blood sugar and curb sugar cravings? A natural and simple way to get my digestive system regulated? How exciting! Can you help me learn more?” Yes, it was just what the girl had hoped. She was able to help people!
But not everyone was excited. Some became concerned and even angry. After all, the girl had never shared anything like this before. What it a scheme? Did the girl have ulterior motives? Had she thought this through? Was she using people?
So the girl took a step back and prayed again for wisdom and understanding, asking God to make it clear once more that this was from Him. She took time to listen and reflect. She consulted with wise and trusted friends. And once again, she knew God was telling her that this was good, that she was doing right, and that God was a part of all of it.
It is important for me to assure you that I have not shared Javita with you so that I could take advantage of my blog audience, rise to the top of a company, and “get rich.” Not one word have I shared without first praying. I tried and quickly fell in love with the products, saw that the business was simple and easy to become a part of with a very small investment, joined without hesitation, and started telling you about it!
But would you believe, this thing that I’m sharing is a Direct Sales company? I know! I didn’t see it coming either. But just because it’s different, doesn’t mean it’s bad. Just because it’s unexpected doesn’t mean it’s wrong. I hope you know that my heart is constantly in search of God’s will and never would I step in front of you with a plan to take advantage of your trust.
If you’ve ever bought a product from Usborne Books, Pampered Chef, Tupperware, Norwex, Mary Kay, and/or any other direct sales company you’re familiar with, hopefully you simply enjoyed doing business with a friend while acquiring a great product along the way! If you’re going to buy a product anyway, why not support a friend who has knowledge of the product? If your friend makes a commission selling you the product, then it’s a win-win!
And to be specific about Javita, if you’re going to buy coffee and tea anyway, why not purchase a beneficial, healthy product from a person you know instead of corporate Starbucks or even a grocery store chain? If you’re used to buying Gatorade, Crystal Light, or any other sweetened beverage that does very little to benefit and quite a bit to harm (all of which are companies you’re supporting with your dollar anytime you make a purchase), why not put that money toward a product that encourages good health?
I’ve still got the recipes and the ridiculousness and the real life encouragement to share! I just also happen to sell healthy coffee now. In addition to all the normal posts I will continue to write, I’ll probably say something about Javita once in a while as I learn more and discover more of the goodness. But if you want to skip those posts, just like you skip any of my posts that don’t interest you, that is absolutely fine!
I am here to assure you that my heart is in the right place and the business side of Javita is legit. It’s as legit as Thirty-One Gifts and Lu-La-Roe. I think it is great that God provides opportunities like this for people that want flexible work hours that will benefit their families! As for me, I will continue following God’s lead each day to run this business as He guides.
If you want a chance to enjoy these great drinks I’ve learned to love and/or have a chance to share with people about a product you love and that you have benefited from, then by all means pray about God’s direction for you in this. Keep the questions coming, or scroll right on past, and be fully assured that my cup of coffee and I are completely content with whatever you choose! :)
