Vector Marketing, Cutco, and a bad rep!
Well well well.. so on Tuesday I started working for Vector Marketing. I’m the receptionist/ recruitment specialist. I was super excited interviewing for the position over a month ago, I walked into it feeling like it was my job. I owned it, I wanted it. Well, they hired someone else. I got a call from Kevin, the bossman, and he informed me (before I have even got home from the interview) that I was his 2nd choice for the job. As my mind went to other things I knew it was because of my lack of experience in an office. I was very upset but was hoping that by some grace of God, I would still get the job. Unfortunately I got a call a month later saying that Justin, the person hired for the job had put in her two weeks. Although it was a fair amount of unfortunate events in her life that caused me to get the job. I felt bad, but obviously excited as I could ever be. Its great pay, perfect hours for me.. and the type of job I have always wanted. Obviously, there is issues with every job but there’s very evident conflicts. After some research, not a ton but some, it seems Vector and Cutco have a horrible reputation. All the Wiki page talks about is lawsuits and labor laws. I couldn’t believe it. I personally can’t see this being a bad opportunity for anyone. Sitting in on this training has been amazing, they give you great tips, great ideas and tons of motivation. If Vector sucks, shouldn’t Avon, or Mary k? Well they don’t pay you base pay like Vector does and they damn sure don’t give you free products to show off. In my opinion, owing Avon an amount to be undisclosed, I think Vector and Cutco is at the top of the sales ladder. Especially here at this office. The owner is awesome. He only gets paid if the sales reps do.. its insane! I love this job so far, and all of the things that Vector does, including the help with the community. Do your own research, think what you want and do what you can. You are as you think you are!
Will write more when I am not at work. PEACE OUT!

Today is a hard one, it could end up dropping off into many different arenas of thought. I typed in my usual “random subject matter” picked the 10th photo and up popped another blog about racism. Particularly mentioned was Trayvon Martin. Now, this is a sensitive subject for many people, and rightfully so… but I do not believe these people who are outraged are just African-American. I believe wholeheartedly that ANYONE outraged about this, is so for a certain reason. This reason folks, is the reason I am writing today. I am attempting to tackle this is because I have a bit of time on my hands to do so. I think the public cry of outrage is not just because of our beliefs that Caucasians or Hispanics can be racist (in fact every race is racist in their own way, not saying that it is right) Its because our law enforcement, the people who have our very lives in their hands, are not doing what is right and just for everyone, not just Treyvon. This poor kid, just happened to be there to open the eyes of the public. A mere casualty or war. This war is between we, the people, and them, the enforcers. So many people believe that law enforcement is to protect and serve us, our rights, our laws as a United States. In reality, they are protecting and serving the Government and not many people have the sense to put these two things together. There is a fine line between what is right and what is wrong, not many grey areas. When we see so many things going on that are wrong, and in-just, like poor baby Caylee Anthony not getting justice for who killed her, we start to wonder, to doubt… to be afraid! What if this was our town, our neighborhood, our home, our children? Who will protect and serve us, who will bring us justice. Unfortunately the answer not a thin line, its a grey area that more and more people are stepping into. The bottom line is, law enforcement never does what is right for the victim, they do whats right for themselves, and to me that is the worst false sense of security we have ever faced. If there is to ever be a difference, people have to make a stand. Whether it be the public at large, or a law enforcement officer that is truly here to protect and serve us (of which I personally believe there is none) someone has to say or do something… and quite frankly, my small voice will probably go unheard and no one important will be effected by my words and that angers me. As a person, a mother, a daughter and a citizen of the United States of America! Here’s to justice for everyone and anyone.For crying out loud DO SOMETHING!

Cell phones…. oh how I hate them, and love them! Its hard to make a choice on how to feel about these over-priced mini computers but we don’t really have a choice because if we don’t have a cell phone, we are limited in the exposure we have to the now “real world”. Its no longer popular to write a letter to a family member, instead we text them. To me it seems a little odd, that without a cell phone we feel helpless. Even if its not a smart phone people literally walk around like the walking dead if they do not have one or theirs is out of service…. like a chicken with the head cut off. One month service-less could mean the difference between a happy face and a Xanax prescription. On the other hand, never have we ever imagined the things cell phones are coming out with presently. They are a calendar, map, pen, paper, diary, alarm clock, or game system that’s on 24 hour service mode. How could we live without these creatures of technology? Like the most fragile living breathing things, we protect them… Will there ever be an end? I think not.
