I was born in Washington, PA and have spent most of my life working for myself as an entrepreneur in many different types of businesses. I got myself started in elementary school selling kits of mugs, spoons and stuff. I won the top award for that in the school, a free trip to Disney. At about age 13, I starting mowing yards. By the time I graduated high school I had 33 full-time clients. I’ve always loved working on yards and making them look great, but it was hard work with no residual income or income growth.
I went to school for Massage Therapy so I could work for myself and also waited tables at what seems like every restaurant franchise in America. I liked waiting tables because I could work great hours, pick up more shifts for more money or give away shifts to get time off. I had a lot of time freedom and made great cash and loved it. That was my first taste of controlling my income myself and also my schedule and having time freedom. The few jobs I’ve had, I hated all the drawbacks. I worked for FedEx, UPS, a computer company and others. I am now psychologically unemployable. I love sleeping in, going to the gym, Starbucks, and the pool during the daytime on my OWN schedule, whenever I want to. I also like traveling whenever I want to, for as long as I want to.
In my twenties, I discovered Network Marketing through Amway. I never knew I could work for myself, have unlimited income, residual income and work my own hours all without stocking inventory, employees or overhead. I was HOOKED! So I busted my ass for 7 years and made ZERO MONEY. On the other hand, however, the experience was priceless and taught me to be confident, read motivational books, listen to great audio training, attend seminars, surround yourself with leadership and that “if it was to be, it was up to me”. The main problem was, I did it the “old school way”. I passed out flyers, business cards and used the “3-foot rule”.
I have a heart for helping others and am super excited about the future. I look forward to speaking with you today! Stay tuned!
