I am a SAHM with two girls ages 5 and 2. They are my life. I've been to college twice and have earned two diplomas in bookkeeping/accounting and fitness/nutrition. But after completing school I still found it hard to leave my girls for a career. I felt like I was choosing to have my girls raised by someone else and thought if I went to work I would be missing out on a crucial time in there lives. So one day I found my answer, working from home. There's so many opportunities out there but I wanted something life changing, something that would make a difference. Having a background in wellness it was a no brainer. I wanted to stay home with my girls more then anything and I want to do something I was passionate about.

I am now self-employed, partnered with a company that is teaching me how to make a difference in other peoples lives as well as my own, not only am I receiving reliable income I am building a future where I won't ever have to leave home to go to a job that I'll be working for someone else but I'm home for the crucial moments in my girls lives which is most important. Since joining the WAH I have come across many opportunities but never coming across legitimate companies that pay what we are worth. It was a tough first couple months, having information overload I was getting discouraged, and felt like I was getting no-where. But being determined to build a successful business so I'll never miss out on my girls has rewarded me greatly this month :) I have reached Director in my company, was #18 on our leadership board and have met many wonderful people. I wanted to change the life of others and in doing so I am also changing mine as well :)

You should be very proud of yourself, and I'm sure your girls are very proud of you, too! And what an awesome example you are setting for your girls! And I totally agree with you about having kids so some stranger can raise them? I can't get my head around that! I did the same as you for that exact reason!
