Most of you, darlings know, Honey Good started as a hobby due to looking for a new purpose to satisfy me after 50. I was bored during the day, though busy, pretending I was content when, in actuality, I was only going through the motions of contentment. In other words, I was restless to find the new me, in me…whatever that was! At this time, my ultimate concierge was a busy businessman, though I can truthfully say, he would have dropped everything to make me happy. Remember, darlings, I am the second wife! I say this tongue in cheek because I know many first marriages are like a second marriage. I know you are wondering, what does this have to do with the Zodiac signs? Well, darlings I have to give you a little background before I tell you. Please be patient.
I eventually did change course after the age of 50, never imagining my hobby of writing would attract many women, over 180,000 of you, to read my lessons learned, lifestyle after 50, and my philosophy about life.
I am grateful to all of you because you have made my life full. So full that I am exploding with productivity, great enjoyment, and my later in life purpose.
Of course, over time my little hobby grew, and I knew I needed help. I did not know how to handle Social Media or the Internet. I did not know how to embed photos into my stories; I am not a professional editor, nor do I know how to splice videos or handle PR or answer the questions of brands that consider me an influencer. Therefore, over time I enlisted the help of an assortment of personalities and their sometimes-at-odds Zodiac signs.
Meet The Many Zodaic Signs Of HoneyGood.com
For fun, I decided to describe each of them by their Zodiac sign.
At Honey Good, there is one Virgo, one Leo, one Cancer and one Scorpio. I am the Taurus. Just by our signs, we make up an exciting and diverse group.
Why am I comparing my group to the Zodiac?
I see the signs the Zodiac as a mosaic because the concept of the zodiac originated in Babylonian astrology and mosaics were very popular.
All twelve signs interlock like the stars and the planets and human beings. We, at Honey Good, are a complexity of personalities; each having a purpose though we are intertwined with one goal…we want to make all of you feel happy and inspired in the community that is HoneyGood.com.
So, I thought it would be fun, for all of you, to tell you about my busy bees who flutter around helping me, as I continue to spread my wings.
They have become my friends, my darlings. I know the rule of business. Never let those who work for you become your friends. I look at it this way: I listen to my heart. So far, so good. If I have to pivot, trust me I will.
Anyway, when you get a Taurus, a Scorpio, a Leo, a Cancer, and a Virgo together there is not always agreement and compatibility on the issues at hand; but there is mutual respect. And, like in all elements of life, diversity is an essential part of creating quality. The same thoughts lead you to the same places; our differences bring strength and creativity to HoneyGood.com.
Here Are The Girls… And A Guy!
My editor, Carolyn’s sign, is LEO the LION, and she loves to have her mane patted. She is our beautiful Lioness Bee with plenty of smarts. She is a great editor and a wiz at Social Media. Everything you see on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest is because of Carolyn. She is the voice you hear behind the scenes on my Facebook LIVE events. Though she needs her mane patted, she is deserving. She is always there for me with her sound advice and explanations of the whys of the Internet.
Stepping back for a moment, I think whatever our sign, darlings, every woman should insist on having her mane patted! Don’t you? So, be warned, Carolyn… we are getting ready to spread the mane patting around. 🙂
My VIRGO, Susan, majored and mastered in PR. She is our scholar. She reads every word and sentence 1000 times and checks every fact, and tests every point, and then rechecks every fact to make sure everything is perfect as she drives us crazy.
And, thank goodness she does read and reread because she always finds what the rest of us would never notice!
She has been by my side with her steady-eddy manner from the beginning. I am fortunate.
My CANCER, Ines, is my assistant and also in charge of sales. She is knowledgeable and organized with the gift of gab and a great laugh. She is a nurturer; our mother hen, who spreads her wings around the HG family nest dictating wise advice and authority to all! She is a doer and a shaker. Thank goodness; I could have no finer or smarter assistant.
My SCORPIO, Birdie, is the only male on the team and the only member from out of town. Los Angeles is his home. He is a kind Scorpio who has the keen foresight to envision a bigger picture for Honey Good. He drives the site with his marketing prowess, art, video, podcasts and technical computer knowledge. (Podcasts and more videos are coming, darlings.)
I am a TAURUS. I am reliable, practical, and ambitious. I embrace living outside the box, and I enjoy harmony in all forms meaning building a harmonious company and website that blend. Colors must blend. Music must mix. Outfits must blend. My musings must blend. Co-workers should blend. My weakness is: I love everything, beautiful.
How Different Zodiac Signs Work Together In Harmony
The other day we were discussing, on our weekly conference call, our new site that is in the process of being built. State tuned, darlings.
Our mouths were ‘buzzing’ forth with ideas and solutions, and our ears were buzzing with information. We were agreeing and disagreeing, but always with respect for one another.
We, at Honey Good, all dance to our own drummer because of our Zodiac signs, but we are also very much aligned. You all know, I believe in the alignment of the Stars and the Planets, the Sun and the Moon, the Sea, and the Earth. After my family, my greatest love is nature. We are all a part of nature, darlings. The Zodiac slots itself right into my scheme of how I see ‘my’ world.
All of us at Honey Good have much in common. We are a loving group of women and man. We know the meaning of loyalty and live by it. We are all creative. We are team players. We are go-getters. We are friends.
I believe all of us at Honey Good are connected because we are supposed to be. I am intelligent, and I am spiritual. More often than not I go with my ethereal feelings. Those feelings affect my human spirit and soul. So far…so GOOD!
