Looking back, it was the most challenging 12-15 months of my life. I had left an abusive marriage, and a long drawn out divorce had just been finalized. I felt like I could breathe again – for the first time in years!
Then, just a couple of months later, the dominoes started to fall down. Over the next 12 months a lot happened including losing my job, and going through a foreclosure.
So there I was, living in a small rural town where I knew no one and I had no job.
I figured I could feel sorry for myself and go get another job that I hated. Or I could look at this as a time for healing, a time to make something more for myself and my family.
I took a hard look at myself, and where I had ended up in life.
When I was a child, when someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, my answer was simple…I wanted to help people.
This was my chance, my do-over, to find my dream job where I could help people.
But where to start? After all, there’s a lot of different ways we can help people.
One thing I did know was that I didn’t want to work in a cubicle for some big company ever again. I wanted to have flexibility for my kids and their events and activities. And I didn’t want to have to drive an hour in traffic or bad weather to an office. So I started exploring ways I could work from home.
What I ended up doing was leveraging my years of experience in human resources to help people who were looking for new jobs…either because of a lay off or they just needed to find something new. At first I loved it. It felt great talking with people and getting to hear their stories, then helping them find the job of their dreams.
But after a while, it started to get depressing. I was talking to people who had worked for companies 10, 20, or 30 years and they were devastated because of their job loss. I started to feel like, even though I was doing my best to help them, I was making a living off of other people’s misfortune. And that felt kind of crappy.
And then, network marketing came back into my life. I had been involved in a networking marketing company years ago. I even worked for a direct marketing company for several years! So I know it works.
And I know this is my time to shine!
I am excited about my future again. I don’t dread waking up on Monday because I’m excited about my business and the life I am building for me and my kids.
I can’t wait to help you create a life you love!
