Let me tell you something wonderful! God gave me an “Ah-ha moment” and a wonderful message through a Jennifer Allwood. I can’t say how blessed I feel with this message! So, you will notice a shift in DUO Inspirations; how it is promoted, how it is framed, and how it is measured.
DUO Inspirations is still…
DUO Inspirations will still have the same God-inspired products and services. No, I am not saying religious. I am saying that God has inspired me to create, sell, or offer products and services based upon my talents and interests, as well as your needs and wants. How wonderful! Win/win!!!
Changes in DUO Inspirations…
So, what is this “Ah-ha moment” and message with which God blessed me? Here it is: DUO Inspirations is not just another business. It isn’t about getting likes on Facebook, it isn’t about selling products and services, it isn’t about numbers, and it isn’t just some cold, calculating way to build a following. DUO Inspirations is more about building a community, to serve that community and to serve Him! Why? DUO Inspirations is a business about serving people and serving God, because I am called to serve people and serve God. Even if there was no DUO Inspirations, I would still be called to serve people and serve God.
I have a good heart, but I was going about building DUO Inspirations all wrong.
I used to think that if I just show people my products and send them to my website, they will buy. I made the products with love. I provided my services with love. I truly care about people and want to help. However, that wasn’t the way I was promoting DUO Inspirations. I thought that if I have more likes to my page, more people would see and like what I have to offer. Nope, one doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with the other.
Am I building a community just to get more business?
No, I am not building a community just to get more business. I genuinely care about people. I used to hate promoting. Why? I used to think that I am tooting my own horn or always saying… “Come see what I did. Look at this.” That was never me. I can get excited about gathering a group of people and creating a community. I like to inspire and be inspired, I like to encourage and be encouraged, I like to help and be helped, I like to educate and to learn, I like to share my faith, and I like to glorify God by using the talents and interests that He gave me! Now, I enjoy telling people about DUO Inspirations and what God has called me to do! I will continue to create products and services that are God-inspired. If you are interested, wonderful! If not, you are still valued. You can still be a part of the DUO Family!

Hello, everyone. How are you? Have you started gearing up for the holidays yet? I know. This year seems to be going so fast. It may seem a little early to be thinking about Christmas, especially since it seems like summer was just a few days ago.
However, it is never too early to start ordering Christmas cards. And guess what... I have good news. DUO Inspirations is now offering new designs of Christmas greeting cards. There is something for everyone. And, if you don't see anything you like, I can possibly even customize or personalize something for you. But... you have to act now.
Here are some Christmas card options for you by DUO Inspirations:
To purchase greeting cards from DUO Inspirations, please fill out a contact form or message DUO Inspirations on Facebook. Thank you.

Just a note:
The envelopes will be white. These are beautifully done display mock ups by Rhonda Patton. She is a talented graphic designer who created these mock ups just for me. I appreciate her beautiful work and talent.
If you need any graphic design work, I would recommend Rhonda Patton for your graphic design needs. You can contact her at Freckled Frog Designs on Facebook.
Hello everyone. I hope you are having a great week. Today, I just wanted to write a short post about my DUO Inspirations journey.
I have been selling my children's book, hand painted necklaces, wooden ornaments, doodles, and other art originals. I am about to add to DUO Inspirations' product list.
The other day, I went shopping for supplies. You can see blank cards, paint brushes, paints, sponges, and pens. (I hope I didn't miss anything.)
Anyway, I am sooooooooo excited! I hope you like the new product. Stay tuned here and on the DUO Inspirations Facebook page for more information. Please, take a moment to explore the site. I would also enjoy hearing from you. Feel free to leave a comment or to contact me.
If you have an art or a craft that you would like DUO Inspirations to try, please contact me. I have a creative and adventurous side. I enjoy trying new things. Also… if you have a place to market or promote DUO Inspirations, a networking idea, a need for a vendor, please contact me. And… as always, I am always looking for people to join me in "empowering people one inspiration at a time." So… if you would like to share something inspirational with me and my readers, please contact me. (Do you see a pattern here? LOL!)
Another new part of my DUO Inspirations journey is that I hope to be checking out some local vendor opportunities, events, farmer's markets, and craft fairs. I hope to see you there!
Hello everyone. I am pleasantly surprised at how well DUO Inspirations is doing so far. I consider myself a fairly creative person. However, DUO Inspirations has brought out creativity in me that I didn't even know I possessed. I am learning, doing, and even selling inspirational products that I wouldn't even imagined a short time ago. I am also meeting some very nice and inspirational people.
Hello. How are you? Have you ever felt you could follow your dreams if you get a little inspiration or encouragement? Do you, as I do, enjoy surrounding yourself with inspiration, friendliness, and encouragement? Do you like to inspire and be inspired? If so, you are in the right place.
I will be starting out by posting on Wednesdays. I am apt to post about anything that relates to inspiration, creativity, education, sharing, and life’s journeys, as well as DUO Inspirations’ products and services.
Inspiration is an interesting and “feel good” source. It can tug at your heartstrings, bring out the tears, and motivate people to do wonderful things. However, inspiration can be sweet and simple as well. It doesn’t have to be a heroic story of saving someone from death or running the extra mile.
Everyone has a journey in life. They may even split their life into many journeys. More importantly, everyone can be a source of inspiration. I guess that is why I titled this blog, “Inspirational Journeys.” Everything we do or don’t do is part of our journey. You have much to share and so do I.
I will be looking for inspirational quotes, books, sites, products, services, anecdotes, and ideas. If you are interested, please feel free to comment below or contact me. I would love to chat with you and welcome you into this inspirational community. The diversity of guest posts will be a welcomed addition to Inspirational Journeys. Let’s make the world a better place, “one inspiration at a time. “
Hi everyone. I hope you will both find and share inspiration here. Together, we can be "empowering people one inspiration at a time."
