There comes a point when you have to give yourself (and your kids) the best chance of making it through life.
In November 2010, I separated from my husband. There were plenty of reasons that led to the decision but baring all on the internet for my son to find one day is so not cool.
I chose this path because it felt right – it was right. But it certainly didn’t stop me from worrying about what life was going to be like. I half expected to fall flat on my face.
And I expected to be broken, unfixable.
And I expected to be a quivering, sobbing, uncontrollable blob.
And I expected to be a struggling work-from-home-mom with a (then) 4 year old vying for my attention while the business I’ve been building for 3 years slipped through my worked-to-the-bone fingers.
And I was wrong. Turns out that I was a hell of a lot stronger than I ever gave myself credit for.
I knew there was no turning back. There wasn’t going to be any happily ever afters. Knowing that meant digging in my heels and fighting like hell.
Freedom meant choice. And with choice, I knew I could take my life anywhere I wanted or needed it to go. I started to fix myself - the physical pain, the toxic marriage, friendships and love.
LIMITING BELIEFS can overtake you. Envelop you. You WILL live up to your own expectations. When I stopped expecting that I would fail, I suddenly grew wings.
STAY OPEN – It’s not until you see how much further you can go that you realize how much it has been holding back. And it’s exhilarating.
THE UNIVERSE GIVES YOU WHAT YOU NEED not always want you want.
BACK TO TODAY.....
The home based business moms I met in 2008 hit me in the feels because they were doing what they were taught and it was garbage.
Garbage in, garbage out. It's no wonder everyone always fails in MLM.
I teach network marketing in a way that no one else does. It's all about building a business that can't be taken away from you. At the end of the day, that's not what y'all think you want.
But I can't keep hitting my head against a brick wall, so I'm giving it up. Right here, right now.
Even the best intentions can't feed your family. If you need help and are going to do the work, send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with the subject line: I still need you.
As for the future of my business, that's not entirely set in stone. What I'm good at and passionate about hasn't changed.
Big Picture Strategy.
Processes and Systems.
Time Management and Productivity Systems.
How that shows up in the world is yet to be seen but what you'll find here and on my email list will continue to help you build your business in the right way.
I'll see you on the other side.

I MADE THESE FOR YOU

Fanning the flames between your sparks of ideas and the strategies you need to make shit happen.
