When Health is Wealth… Anything Else is Too Expensive!

Good evening and Happy Sunday and Happy Labor Day Eve!!!

I hope this blog finds you in the best of health and spirits. As for myself, I’ve been battling a sinus infection of sorts for a week now!!!  I can barely breathe, my throat feels like a baby dragon has hatched in there and quite frankly I just want to sleep LOL! But that brings me to a more pressing topic, my health and the health of the ones I love. After having several eye-opening discussions with one of my girlfriends, she shared her concern about my daughter possibly having Heavy Metal Toxicity. She said that when teens sleep a lot, have mood changes or sometimes may seem a little distant, it could be signs of this condition. I never thought about it but I guess it’s possible.

We try to eat right, I mean I’ve done vegan challenges, tried to be a vegetarian and I believe I’m going to land somewhere around pescatarian. That’s when you eat seafood, fruits, and veggies. I had an epiphany this week… You ready??? It doesn’t matter how clean we eat IF our environment is still full of toxins in the cleaning supplies, detergents and other household products we use! So I rediscovered Melaleuca. Melaleuca is a wellness company that has mostly anything and everything you could need for your home and body and they are non-toxic, chemical free and biodegradable!!! I joined on 8/31 and got my first order on 9/1 (#betterthanprime)!!!

The company is very similar to Sam’s Club or Costco. You pay an annual membership fee and then you just place monthly orders for the things you need! Typically, the fee is $19 but they are running a special right now for $1 and you won’t pay the $19 until next year!!! That’s less than 50% of what we pay for other memberships. If that wasn’t good enough, they also have access to many of the big box retailers we know and love such as Macy’s, Old Navy and Disney in their Marketplace with up to 30% in rebates and earnings in customer referrals!!! If you are interested in becoming a member please feel free to contact me!!!

Unlike most scholarships, the L.A.C.E project is more like a family. Even after I received the scholarship they have continued to keep in touch with me. They’ve helped me step out of my comfort zone by inviting me to social events. Attending these events have helped me gain the confidence I needed to pursue the goals I set for myself that I would otherwise not have the drive to do so. They ensured that I stayed on track with my career as a full-time student while working part-time. The L.A.C.E project has guided me, uplifted me, and sent me on a journey for greatness. – Malynta Anthony

My name is Silver Koen and I met Arkeisha Cox in 2016, through a mutual friend. And we instantly clicked like we had been friends forever! It was refreshing to meet a young black professional woman like myself that had similar morals & goals. So we often met for lunch & dinner conversing about life and our goals to uplift young black women and even start businesses. I am so grateful to have such an amazing friend that you can not only laugh, cry with but also inspire you to do better in life. Thank you Arkeisha Cox & I look forward to many more years of friendship and possible business partners. – Silver Koen

Mrs.Cox has been a great inspiration & motivator to me. She has showed me that as a black woman, you can be successful. I don’t have to be the product of a stereotype, I can be more. The L.A.C.E Project has allowed me to be introduced to many independent & successful black businesswomen. I have learned so much from Mrs. Cox and she has always supported me in everything I do. I am a proud scholarship recipient of the L.A.C.E project. – Aeriana Holifield
