Find Out Who You’re Hearing From!

I’m just an average woman who never stops moving forward. I have goals and dreams, and I never want to look at any part of my life and say “Sure, I’m fine with staying right here.” Instead, I want to keep the mindset that things can always be strengthened and bettered with some effort.

No, that doesn’t mean that I am unhappy with my life…quite the contrary. I can always be a better mom, a better entrepreneur, a better Christian, and a better person in general.

I have 2 amazing little boys, 9 months and 2 years old. I began a home-based business when I was pregnant with our first son, while still working my corporate job, and was able to replace my salary by the time he was born. I said goodbye to the corporate world just prior to his arrival, and have been a work-from-home mom ever since!

Do you wish you could quit your corporate job and work from home too? I would love to help you find a great work at home opportunity so you can live the dream too!



What Caused Me to Start a Blog?

I have always been a go-getter. I skipped the 8th grade and finished high school when I was 16. After that, I went through college and worked 3 jobs (a full-time and 2 part-time jobs at the same time) to pay my way. It took me 8 years to get my 4 year degree, but I had no debt upon graduation, and I was fully vested in a corporate company.

I have spent most of my career days at a lab bench (or my accompanying office). I have worked in medical, quality control, technical service, and cardiac arrhythmia laboratories, and left a lasting impression on each with my expertise and process improvements. But I always wanted more…I wanted to be the boss – my own boss.

A somewhat helpful opportunity arose when I was pregnant with my first son. I wanted to be able to stay home with him, but still be a business woman. So I began seeking out work-from-home positions. I landed a job with a popular search engine as an independent contractor. In a sense, I became my own boss, although not completely. So I kept searching until I found the perfect fit: becoming a lifestyle blogger and empowering other women to do the same.

I want to help you reach your goals, become a better mom, grow spiritually, and begin a home-based business. Sometimes all it takes is a little encouragement or guidance. I’m here to offer you as much of those things as possible! I am all about equipping and empowering women.
