When I made the choice to be a Stay At Home Mom there was really only one reason: Jo. I knew that I wanted to raise my baby. I wanted to breast feed, bond, teach and connect with my little angel. As soon as Jo was born I had a very intense need to parent her. I wanted to nurture her in all of the ways I felt neglected. I chose to do everything in my power to help her to be confident, and loved in every way. In doing so, we officially became a one income family. It is not easy to survive on one income. Jo’s dad really wanted me to go back to work, and I could not bring myself to leave her. When she was 6 month old I started looking for part time jobs. I was so discouraged, all of my options were not worth the effort if I was going to pay a babysitter my entire check. This is when network marketing was introduced to me. I started a home business. It was awesome! I only left the house a few hours a week, and we had extra in come. I learned how to talk to people, how to build relationships, I found my strengths, and worked on my weaknesses. I learned so much and I increased my knowledge in so many subjects. I was really on the road to finding myself.
After a few years, several moves and a broken relationship, I took a step back from my business. With all of the changes, I could not focus on anything beyond my little one, and our next step. Once things settled down, and my new life began, I started considering working from home again. From everything I had learned, I knew that Network Marketing is what I wanted to do, and it really was my only option. I have 3 kids now, one is out of school at 12:30p another at 3:00p and my 3 year old is home all day. If I were to work it would have to be in the evenings, and I already have limited time with my fiance as it is, I have no interest in jeopardizing the healthiest, happiest relationship I have ever been in. I know myself, and I need consistent connection to keep a strong bond. So the question was, which home business? After years of doing parties I knew that I was over weekly parties, buying inventory, keeping samples and trying to convince people to let me in their homes! Don’t get me wrong, I did LOVE these parties, I had a great time, and learned so much, I just can’t see myself doing that now.
Over the years I have developed an interest in health, and it slowly but surely turned into an obsession. Having such deep convictions for treating animals humanely, and understanding the importance of organic food, and plant based life style, it was not hard to find my niche. I love that my job and parenting go hand in hand. I love that the more I learn a
bout health and fitness, the better I am at my job, and the better decisions I make for my family. I also know that my knowledge is making an impact on other people’s lives! I get feedback day in and day out about how amazing my clients and friends are feeling, I get updates on people who have made commitments to themselves, and are reaching their goals. It is so inspiring! The best part is that I get to spend most of my time with my kiddos.
