Product Review: DG Natural Essentials

What’s the story behind DG Natural Essentials?

According to their website, “…DG Natural Essentials Corporations – A family owned business. [They] were previously known as Daisy’s Girls. DG Natural Essentials is a tribute to [their] mother “Daisy Lee Jennings”. She was a phenomenal woman, the essence of the virtuous woman – the vision of natural beauty…”

My Product Review

I was blessed with three products (Virtuous Body Butter, Let’s Get Crackin’ Foot Cream, and Baby Fresh Lotion Bar) from one of the DG Natural Essential co-founders, Portia Green.

I was excited when I first learned that their products were natural with ingredients like, cocoa butter, soy bean oil, essential oils, etc. It took me about a week to try the products. The results have been positive.

At times, my skin can be a bit sensitive, so I proceeded with caution.

The foot cream and body butter have a nice light fragrance with just enough thick texture.

The body butter, like the foot cream, is Rich and creamy with light essential oil fragrances like peppermint, sweet orange, and more.

The lotion bar is not as thick and has more oil. So, if you struggle with the occasional ‘ashy ankles syndrome’, like I do, then try the lotion bar.

Thank you DG Natural Essentials for blessing the world with your amazing products.

Do You Know How Value & Self-worth Affect Your Life?

There have been times when I wondered what my life would have been if only I had understood the impact of knowing my worth. Without any extensive self-assessments, I know my relationship choices would have been different.  Hmm…I guess it’s okay to wonder, without spending considerable time feeling disheartened about what coulda shoulda woulda.

My childhood memories include growing up in Rancho Cordova, California as a Brownie and then a Girl Scout for many years. Through those organized program activities, I was introduced to basic leadership skills, courage, team-building, adventure, and confidence – especially when I was one of the top Girl Scout cookie sellers. So, I can say I was familiar with self-worth on a surface level.

What is the Meaning of Self-Worth and Self-Value?

Self-worth and self-value are two related terms that are often used interchangeably. Having a sense of self-worth means that you value yourself, and having a sense of self-value means that you are worthy. The differences between the two are minimal enough that both terms can be used to describe the same general concept.

Many people battle with knowing (and communicating) their value which ultimately affects their relationships and career decisions to say the least.

Powerful Videos

Instead of potentially overwhelming boring you with a lot of talk about how knowing our self-worth and value influences every area of our lives, would you check out the following two videos.

1. YOUR VALUE

2. Know Your Worth, Then Ask For It

After reading this content and watching the videos, would you do me a favor? Would you share your feedback? I would really love to hear your personal stories as to when, or if, you discovered your value. Okay?

While you are discovering and assessing your self-worth, keep a few things in mind.

Maybe you’ve experienced a “failed” relationship, felt stuck in your career, or felt “less than” after comparing your accomplishments with others. Regardless of what chipped away at your self-worth, you CAN rebuild your confidence in YOURSELF.

Final Thought

Know Your WORTH and do not settle for less than you DESERVE. One last thing is that you will encounter those who are unable to see your value, but don’t let their opinion become your reality.

Micromanagers are killers…

Especially in the workplace, micromanagers can kill motivation, creativity, and overall productivity.

It’s safe to say that a micromanager is one whose management style is obsessively controlling of the creativity and freedom of their staff or subordinate. It is one who has an “it’s my way or the highway” managing style.

When I think of a micromanager, specific thoughts and terms come to mind:

  • Control freak
  • Insecure
  • Lacks confident in their management role
  • Ineffective
  • BossZILLA
  • So annoying!!!

I saw a Somee card graphic/meme online states, ” I perform better under strict micromanagement, said NO employee ever.” After I LAUGHED OUT LOUD (for real), I thought about the sad reality of that sarcastic meme that many good employees are faced 40+ hours a week. A few questions come to my mind when I think of micromanagers in the workplace, like:

  • Do these people, identified as micromanagers, know they are micromanaging their subordinates?;
  • Is executive leadership aware of the micromanagers who are driving employees crazy and stealing the organization’s productivity?
  • Is it possible, micromanagers see their style as strategic and effective to their employer and staff retention?

I’ve read articles that offer ways for the affected staff member(s) to change their approach in dealing with the “micromanager”, but none that suggest how leadership assesses and fixes the problem of how micromanagers are killing motivation, creativity, and productivity. Is there help for good employees who HATE coming to work and have increased absenteeism just for their own sanity?

Do organizations understand the COST OF A BAD BOSS? Have you experienced having a micromanager or were you ever told you were a micromanager? COMMENT BELOW…
