Let QAN Keep You On Point With Your Personal Goals

Let QAN Keep You On Point With Your Personal Goals -- Classic QAN Bracelet - Original QAN NecklaceBeauty Brite Disclosure

Every year we make a promise to ourselves that this year is going to be different. We set up goals and dreams on where we want to go or what we want to do. Maybe you tell yourself that today is the day things will change or this week is going to be the week. Weeks turn into months and months turn into years because life has a funny way of making us lose sight of what the end game was that we had envisioned for ourselves. Let QAN help you remember the goals, dreams, and hopes you have set for yourself.

QAN is a company that makes bracelets and necklaces with the goal of being a constant visual reminder of the goals and dreams you have set for yourself.

Each Pendant featured on QAN‘s Bracelets and newly released necklaces have four “Arms” and 12 points. Each arm is a representation of cardinal direction so that you can be reminded to always look in the direction of your goals/dreams. The 12 points represent the 12 months of the year so that you will also be reminded to work towards your goal/dream every single day, week, and month of the year…. [read more]

After getting the opportunity to test out the SodaStream, a healthier pop-alternative, I thought that this summer may be different.
