When I discovered Compelling Creations, I was immediately smitten. Inspirational jewelry that is beautiful and affordable – who wouldn’t be in love? Then I met Sue Ann Oltman and experienced her passion for growing the business and sharing her faith while spending quality time with her family. She’s a true inspiration and I am honored to call her a “sister” in faith and in the ICM Network!

About Sue Ann:
I believe I was divinely directed to Compelling Creations. Being in direct sales was never something I envisioned myself doing, as I am not comfortable speaking in front of people and never wanted to be a “pushy home party lady”. However, here I am! I found an ad in the back of a magazine directed toward military spouses in 2008, looked up the website and found a whole new world of inspirational jewelry! In March of 2010, I joined Compelling Creations the first few days after their launch. I have grown with the company and now have a team of my own. My Compelling Creations business is a ministry. It has given me an avenue to share my faith and support causes in a variety of ways. I am able to support a young girl named Allison, who I met on a mission trip to Peru, through Childreach Ministries. I also have the privilege of helping my hostesses support their favorite charity through our “Party with a Purpose”.

Hobbies, interests, gifts: I enjoy watching my kids participate in activities and reading.

Greatest challenge as a mom entrepreneur: My greatest challenges right now are organization and time management. I am passionate about my business and could work 24/7. So creating time for family, work and myself in equal portions can be tricky.
Advice for other mom entrepreneurs: My advice for other Mom entrepreneurs is simple. Never give up! Believe in yourself and stretch to do new things! Leave your comfort zone!
Why I love being a part of the Christian Mompreneur Sisterhood: I love being a part of the Christian Mompreneur Sisterhood because it is a safe place to ask for prayer, share accomplishments and ask for direction. We aren’t competing, we are there to build each other up!
