What is Construction Factoring?


My husband and I started a Construction Factoring business!  Woop, Woop!  A makeup lover, momma of eight and a finance company lol!  Sounds like a typical family scenario, right?!  So, how do you factor an invoice?   Well, it's actually not that hard and a pretty smart option when you have exhausted your bank loan capabilities.  
Accounts receivable factoring, invoice factoring, factoring receivables and factoring are all the same.  Construction factoring is the same as well.  However, in construction factoring there are a few extra layers of paperwork that may make things a bit confusing if you’ve never factored a construction invoice.
John Sawyer, owner of Construction Finance, has put together a video tutorial series to help you understand the steps of construction invoice factoring.  You will also realize that having a factoring company like Construction Finance will give you an extra layer of protection.  Never leave another job site without being paid the entirety of your invoice.
Over the next few days, we will post each new video in the What is Construction Factoring series.  If you just can’t wait to watch them all, check out our Youtube channel playlist and watch them all.

Living Both Black and White "The Great Divide"

Hard conversations yesterday. Many more to come today. 
Just pouring over some thoughts before our next round of conversations today....

I thought bringing my first African American baby home to Arkansas 16 years ago was tough. I thought those first years of looks and judgement would be the hardest to handle. I mean, I was bring her to the KKK capital of the world....  Who knew, a greater hurdle would be waiting 16 years later. 

Now, with racism of both sides so common, (black and white) it's hard, hard, hard to have the toughest of tough conversations. Teaching  that there is true racism on both sides, but even so, one can't judge each person or situation the same.  

With racism so prevalent in both black and white communities, there will be racist whites that pull the trigger, there will be racist blacks that pull the trigger. Why would we think otherwise?  

Having a bird's eye view of both communities, racism is worse now than it has ever been in 16 years. The divide is sooooo deep and far between. It's more difficult than ever before for my daughters to try to live in both. They are so torn with what they hear at school, see on the news and see shared on social media. Mostly hate. Hate from both sides. That they should hate too. 

I won't tell them to accept. I won't tell them to conform. How can I?  

The fact that I brought them home and absolutely didn't conform or accept. The fact that I went against the grain and believed that one transracial family in Jonesboro, AR could make a difference. The fact that I want them to make a difference with their lives. The fact that THEY can use THEIR bird's eye view of both cultures and races. 

These facts are my prayers that one day parents can teach their children to see through another's eyes. To even possibly be able to attempt see what they see. I have the amazing opportunity to see how they feel, see what their friends feel, see their social media. And it's 100% different than what I see on my newsfeed. Why?  Because that divide is sooooo deep and far between. 

Parents, PLEASE, use these opportunities of conversation to teach your children to see both sides. Every shooting, every news story. When you're having those conversations, teach your children to see both sides. Ask your children, "Why do you think he did that?"  "Do you think he was scared?"  "He made a bad choice didn't he?" "What can we do to help others with their fear?"  "How can we make a change?"

Fear.....fear is the main culprit in our racism. Fear is Satan's best kept secret. Fear drives.

Think about it. What war, mass shooting or major travesty in history happened when the root was not fear?  Satan uses fear. 

When we have these conversations about riots, shootings or the latest news story without digging deeper, we end with fear. Our children hear, "We should be scared. We should be scared of 'them'."  And who 'them' is, all depends upon a which household you reside. 

Parents, don't teach your children fear. Teach your children communication. Teach them to debate without fear and violence. Teach them to 'make a change'. Become that police officer, become that law maker, become that teacher, become that peacemaker. 

Just a mom who loves her children,
Dia Sawyer

Being a Mascara Maven

Good morning Mavens!!!!

Do you know what the word 'maven' means? Here's what Wikipedia has to say:

A maven (also mavin) is a trusted expert in a particular field, who seeks to pass knowledge on to others. The word maven comes from Hebrew, meaning "one who understands", based on an accumulation of knowledge.[1]

Say what?! Yes ladies! That's why I picked this name for our team!

We want to become 'Mascara Mavens'! We want to accumulate knowledge and truly 'understand'! And the second and most important part of the definition is that we want to pass that knowledge on to others!! BOOM!

How does this apply to us?
#1 we want to be experts in our products! We need to learn everything we can about our products and how they can be used! Then....wait for it, we can SHARE THAT KNOWLEDGE with others! Sharing vs. Selling (see what I did there!). We are Mascara Mavens for a reason!

#2 We want to be experts in social media marketing! We need to learn all about attraction marketing, sharing vs. selling on social media and branding yourself and your business. Be THE expert (maven) in your niche!!!!! Be a Mascara Maven!!

The most beautiful and rewarding aspect of being in this company is the opportunity to help others grow their business, their confidence, their friendships and their financial future.

Countdown- 2 weeks from today!!
(not that I'm counting)

If you are a SAHM (stay at home mom) to many children, I know you feel me on this!

When we used to homeschool, we didn't have the abrupt family change. I loved it! I wish we had 2 week breaks throughout the year! 3 months of massive change just isn't good for large families!!!!

Starting My Own Business...

Never regretted putting myself out there as a 
'work from home mom' of 7 children! 

I make my own schedule. I forgive myself when I can't keep up the 'work pace' my brain wants.....

I follow my heart when my family needs me. 
I have a little fun everyday! 

I remind myself that I do both jobs because I WANT TO, 
not because I'm caught up in a schedule that someone else has made for me! 😍😍

Beauty From Within

Haven't you seen those women that just exude beauty from within? Women who 'wear their beauty' like a confidence 
they were born with?

However, I doubt they were born with it. 
If I had to guess, I would guess that she earned that confidence through many trials. 
I would guess that she had overcome much 
and triumphed in the end.

That kind of beauty from confidence is not born!

Younique Beginning

I love that having my own Younique Cosmetics business allows me to start new and fresh whenever I want.

If I have a kid-filled, hectic summer of taxiing children to camps etc., family duties take priority and my Lash Business tends to take a back burner.

However, with summer winding down, I can see light at the end of the tunnel!

The kids and I started getting our 'school morning and evening schedules' in line yesterday. So, I've started thinking a lot about my direct sales business as well. I LOVE multilevel marketing and 'sharing' as opposed to 'selling'. I can't wait to start adding new Mascara Mavens to our rockin' team! I am amazed that mascara, makeup and teamwork can change the lives of so many women!
