Create in me a pure heart, O God,  

and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Though I’m trying to make a go of my business, Pink Collar Savvy & Chic, when a perfect career opportunity presents itself, I go for it. Yesterday I had a second interview for a Women’s Center Director position where I had to present a comprehensive 90-Day plan for residents. At the end of my Power Point, the Chief of Operations let me know he was impressed with how smart I am. As a feminine, petite, small-voiced female, that’s not always people’s  first impression of me. Whether I get the job or not, I feel confident he and my other interviewer heard my message load and clear!

Thanks to the Ds –– personal challenges that negatively impact professional performance –– car and computer issues, it’s been 35 days since my last post. As a Pink Collar Beginning Blogger, I must confess: I’m So thankful to have my laptop back and SO ready to BLOG!

It Pays to Pay It Forward

It Pays to Pay It Forward

It’s Day 276 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project (I’m just picking up where I left off before extreme computer and internet issues preventing me from blogging) and an encounter during this time reminded me of how it pays to pay it forward.

I’ve been facing some Ds –– personal challenges that can negatively impact professional performance –– and had an opportunity to work at a friend’s family owned business to supplement my income.  I served as administrative support and created work orders for customers. Sometimes the issues were minor and could wait. Other times, they were major emergencies. Always they were handled with caring customer service. In turn, though the company does no advertising or marketing, satisfied customers pay it forward in glowing recommendations and referrals.

Whether it’s fitting in one more customer who can’t wait a day or going above and beyond the call of duty to help someone who is literally in way over their head with an issue, meeting the needs of others is the theme that runs consistently through the pipes of this plumbing business! This was the case with a client I referred to them while director of a life coaching program. The business exceeded all expectations and delivered a result –– free of charge –– that caused the city to pick up the astronomical bill for Andrea, a truly deserving lady. In turn she’s gone out of her way to give to others in  ways that are extraordinary.  And she keeps getting showered with extravagent BLESSINGS. A few years ago she struggled to make ends meet. Now, because her needs were met (disastrous plumbing issue resolved, healing in relationships, some financial freedom, a new home and career) she’s meeting the needs of others. Andrea is experiencing how it pays to pay it forward.

Me, Pink Collar Coach, and Andrea, a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic Pay it Forward Swan.                        I’m in a cold shoulder top & my favorite A line skirt from TJ Maxx.                                                   Bone sandals bought for a song at Steinmart. All Calvin Klein.

As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose believer, I believe the Bible when it says, “And my God will meet all your needs.” (Phil. 4:19). I also believe He often does it through others. When that happens, there’s reciprocity. His children bless others and are in turn blessed.

How about you? Do you know someone who has a need today? On the homefront or in the workplace? Why not step out in faith, be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose, and meet it. If you do, I promise you’ll find out what my friend’s business and Andrea know. It truly does pay off to pay it forward.

Be savvy & chic,

~Pink Collar Coach
