How Heavenly Hair by Nicole Started!
First off, I want to say God is an amazing God!
Before Heavenly Hair by Nicole came about, I was working overnight at a casino as a Customer Service Representative. in the beginning, it was exciting. Eventually, it became tiring. I was leaving out for work when my husband was coming in from work. When I would get home in the morning, of course, everyone was asleep. I would wake up and my husband would already be at work, so we rarely spent time with each other.
Leaving out in the evening for work and coming home around 2 or 4 am in the morning was very stressful. Let me tell you how our God works! I had to take medical leave from work, so I had the opportunity to be home with my family. It felt so amazing - I did not want to return back to work.
I started praying to God to allow me to stay home, not realizing it was already in His plans!
I begin searching for ways to make money from home. I became an Avon representative and an affiliate for other companies. I would get up at 5 am and would start marketing these products. I did this for a couple of months, and nothing came from it. I couldn't understand why I was not making any money with all the time I was putting into trying to make it work. I was blogging, watching webinars, passing out books, creating a website, bugging my friends and family on my social accounts. The list goes on. But still, nothing came from it, but fake promises to buy and people avoiding me. I became very frustrated with God.
The enemy began to attack my mind by using one of his tactics, confusion. I started believing God wanted me to return to work. Now I'm dealing with thinking God is not allowing me to successfully make money working at home because His plan for me was to return to work. The thought of not being able to have time with my family anymore had me depressed and very unhappy.
The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy John 10:10. The enemy saw how excited I was and how much joy I was feeling about being home with my family. He stole my joy with F.E.A.R. - False evidence appearing real.
One day, I had a conversation with my brother-in-law about starting a hair business. I started looking into it and realized it was a great idea! My very own hair extension business would be something I would love to do. I love anything that has to do with fashion-hair, nails, clothes, shoes, etc. I started to come out of a rut.
Here comes the enemy once again, reminding me that God wanted me to return to work. I begin to think if God wants me to return to work, it would be a waste of time starting a hair business. It will not work either. Depression, sadness, and disappointment begin to creep up again. I no longer wanted to pray, talk with God, or even read His word. I was giving up. But God........But God.....But God!!!!
God stepped in by using my husband to talk with me. After our talk. I was able to see things clearer! I begin to know that God was moving me down this path all along to start my own business. His plan for me was not to market someone else's products but to market my own! That is why Avon and other affiliate programs were not working for me.
Everything that I had learned from working for those other companies was useful, so it wasn't time wasted. The enemy knew where God was leading me. He tried to stop me from receiving my blessing...But God...But God...But God stepped right in when I needed Him. God is an on-time God!!! God let me know that the path I was going down was the path He was leading me down. Thank you, Father!!
My joy was back-my peace was back, my praise was back! Everything That The Devil Stole was BACK!!!
God kept trying to let me know that I had to trust Him. When I would read His word it was about trusting Him. I would watch Joyce Meyers she was talking about trusting God. I would listen to my Pastor's teachings about trusting God. I couldn't see what God was trying to tell me because of the confusion the enemy put in my path.
When I begin to trust God and allow Him to lead me in the right direction of getting Heavenly Hair by Nicole started. He connected me with the right people and made the process super easy!
When you see yourself going through a hard time and don't know why or what to do...TRUST GOD!
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
