Thank you for stopping by our website. My husband Ken and I have been entrepreneurs since 2000. We enjoy the lifestyle it brings us and to our families. We both have worked in the “corporate world” probably like where you are right now. We never thought we would have our own business. But we took a chance and it paid off. Mind you, not everybody can just quit their jobs and hopefully bring in an income from being self-employed right away.
For a lot of people, planning is a good start if that being self-employed is your goal. Ken and I actually bought an established business opportunity (sign company). That was our beginning of being self-employed.
Boy did we have our ups and downs running this business. At one time, we were working 7 days a week. We had a retail store in a busy shopping center. We brought in family to help us when we need more help. We had one employee, our graphic designer. He could do things a lot 4x faster that we could. 🙂
I decided to go back to my mortgage/real estate industry because I needed to expand my own career needs. Sometimes working with your husband can be challenging! So I went to work for the #1 Lender in United States and back into the corporate world thinking that it would be different this time. While I was in the mortgage/real estate industry I started to get into internet marketing. Setting my websites and helping other friends with theirs.
This is when I began to realize that I was enjoying being on the internet and being creative with Facebook and other social media sites. Before I decided to quit my job, I was already planning my next career move. For a year I was working evenings and weekends researching and learning more about internet marketing. I would follow leaders in the industry via articles and social media and then I found MLSP (My Lead System Pro). So back in November, I decided to finally call it quits. I FIRED MY BOSS! Thus my new career or what I would like to call it my new passion was born. I love helping other people and when they would suggest that why don't I charge for my services, I told them that I have a passion. And it is calling my name.
Now I am a full time internet marketer. My husband is still in the sign business but in a semi-retirement mode. But now he works from home like me. Hopefully we won't kill each other 🙂 So far so good, woohoo!. He sees me always on the computer, whether it be on a webinar or on a training course. I love this business and I want to learn as much as possible. I am having so much fun and earning passive income. But we can take off when ever we want to. That is why I love what I do. No one is telling me on a email, that I need to bring more loan applications for the current month.
I am also a grandmother of 9 grandchildren. They are my life. Also 3 daughters and a son. So we have a full life. Always going to see our children and grandchildren with their activities. One daughter currently lives out of state. So when we go for a visit, we take 3-4 days off every few months. You can't do this if you are employed by a company. That is the fun part of being self-employed. We have spent more time with our children/ granchildren now than ever before. What a pleasure that is! Always on the go, baseball games or family gatherings like at Christmas.
Ken loves to ride his Harley and go on trips with his friends. Again, being self-employed makes these trips at lot easier.
We have a dog named Ally. Ally was named after Ally McBeal (television show) She is a Scottish terrier. he has been with us since she was 3 months old. Now she is almost 17 years (human years). Closer to 100 years dog live. All the grandchildren have grown up with her! She is also nicknamed “snoop dog”
My other passion is cooking. After I make a meal it is always ….Anybody want leftovers?? That is when I decided to create a website about selling cookware from Amazon. Earning money each month! I never touched that website after I initially set it up. Another revenue source. Stay tune, I will have a blog post about how to get started with that kind of opportunity.
We hope this website will provide many resources to take your online business to the next level. Even if you just only been thinking of starting a home based business, the resources and information provided will get you going. Always before your start your home based business, always do your homework. I have learned a lot about online businesses and I will share the facts I have discovered. You will also save a lot of money and benefit from my learning what works and what doesn't. There are a lot of scams out there. So beware! You will thank me later. 🙂
Blogging is a great way to connect with people. You can share your ideas and information, you have either experience or researched on. You will make new friends being in the internet marketing business. Always duplicate other successful people. Don't re-invent the wheel. That is my best advise to you! As long as you are having fun and earning money, you will enjoy life more completely. As I create a new blog post, feel free to comment. Would love to hear from you. Stay in touch! So you see I am a real person and I hope my story will show I am an ordinary person just like you wanting financial freedom!
