Back in high school I never belonged to any type of team or “group.” I wasn’t in ASB or on the softball team. I wasn’t in band or on the drama team.
I didn’t have a huge group of best friends. I’m actually a little more reserved than I like to admit. To be honest, I stuck to my few friends and mainly my boyfriend — ok, mostly I stuck with my boyfriend. He’s the one that I ended up marrying so I guess it worked out. 😉
I would watch these groups of girls growing up and I think, deep down I wish I had been a part of one.
To see the team spirit, the bonds that were being made, the everlasting friendships — it was something that I never had truly experienced.
When I joined this business my first “why” was to help my family financially. I was on a mission to bring in an extra income and help bring my husband home just a little bit more.
But as I began to grow this business, something started to happen without me even realizing it.
A community started to form.
Friendships were being created.
Memories were being made.
Lives were being impacted.
I was a part of something.
I was a part of a group of women that I never knew I needed.
I am beyond thankful that the Lord granted me the desires of my heart — even when I didn’t fully realize them.
To think about where I was just a few years ago and where I am now is truly unbelievable. Like, I really wouldn’t have believed it.
But you know what? It’s a story worth telling and I hope it inspires someone to take action.
You see, a few years back I found an opportunity. I didn’t know where it would lead and I had no guarantee of success. As I watched from the sidelines, and saw other women jumping in, I couldn’t shake the feeling of “I need to do this.” It was a constant thought in my mind — a tug.
They say “nothing is more expensive than a missed opportunity” and that is exactly how I felt.
Honestly, I was told that I would regret my decision. I was told this would never work and that I would never make it. It could have most certainly worked out that way, but I just had to try. I had told myself that I would have rather #FAILED than wonder what if?
I was desperate to bring my husband home more. I wanted my husband to live life with me. I didn’t want to have to sleep another night alone.
And, I craved that sense of community with other women.
So with lots of prayer and a heart filled with determination, I jumped in and never looked back. I have worked fiercely hard and with everything I have, and guess what?
It has paid off in more ways than I would have ever imagined.
Throughout these last two years I have been able to take my couple hundred dollars and turn it into a million. It’s crazy to even say this. Like I said, I would have never believed it.
It’s something I NEVER thought would happen, yet I knew it was possible. The sky is the limit. There is no cap on how much you can make. It’s up to YOU.
If you have drive and determination, anything is possible.
Yes, I’ve made money but what I want you to know is that it’s not even about the money. It’s truly how the Lord has granted me the desires of my heart. He’s allowed my husband to work less. He’s allowed us to live LIFE more together and I will never take it for granted.
We have made memories, we have traveled, we have worked and we have come together as a family. And I have met women that are like family.
THAT is what Ive always wanted.
I always say that anyone can do this job, it’s just IF you want it. I am nothing special. I am no different from you. You can do this!
Step out and work for what you want. You’ll never regret it.
