Why Work From Home??
Some people have that dream, some don’t and some don’t care either way – Most people though want more out of life but may be scared to make the changes needed.
I have had the pleasure of working on my own for several years now, but most of that was still trading time for money – I had my own little day spa, direct sales business, some teaching and coaching clients in EFT, healthy eating and Raw Foods, then I had a car accident that really woke me up to the fact if I can’t work well I don’t get paid especially if I have my own business.
During some of that time I also dabbled yes dabbled in a few Network Marketing companies – made some money, lost some money, had some success, had some failures too, made some great friends, had some good experiences and learned a lot!!
I lost site of my dreams for awhile, life got in the way and so did a lot of crap – have to be honest here as my road hasn’t been paved all with roses lol
One day a fairly new friend asked me a couple of powerful questions that started me on the journey of not only getting back into Network Marketing but discovering who I really am and be.
This is what she asked me –
If time or money were not an issued – would you be doing and living like you are now?
If you had a monthly income of $50 000 – who would you be that you are not being now?
Do you have your Dream job with your Dream pay?
Are you living your Dream life?
If not for any of those, why not? – which to all was a BIG FAT NO!!!!
And I couldn’t answer why not – this is life, this is a good as it gets and I’ve tried before I kind of half muttered back to her.
Really?? was all she answered ( and it wasn’t even about Network Marketing at the time)
Sounds like you are giving up or settling, is that true? Which made me stop and ponder, as she was totally right.
Holy crap – she might have just smacked me across the face!! lol
I went through a very stressful time shortly before that conversation – having been an affiliate of a company and also working for them that got shut down without any notice – I lost both incomes, as the same time I was moving to new city where I knew no one and splitting up with my husband – ouch!!
I knew things had to change and it had to start with me if I wanted to create a different story – a better one for my life – and my kids.
Is working from home for everyone possibly, can everyone do it? It’s totally up to you – it does take time, effort and stepping out of one’s comfort zone, for some learning new skills, creating relationships, believing in themselves, the product and company.
For me, I have always loved to have my freedom – not punching a clock for someone else, being told what I am worth, when I have to work, take a break or if I can attend my kids events. I am lucky but also have worked for it. If you have never considered the profession and you are unhappy with your current situation maybe it’s time.
I know for myself I couldn’t go back to being an employee or my old ways – so is it worth it? For me a BIG FAT YES!!!
For YOU? Only You can decide that, and I will follow up with some good things to look for in a company, why I choose the one I did and more of my journey as I am getting closer to my dreams and dream life!!.
If you want to know more about why this profession is a better way check out Eric Worre’s latest book Go Pro – 7 Steps to Becoming a Network Marketing Professional, he explains it well and some of the skills needed for success!!
Make it a great day!!!

Celebrate Life Today!!
I was back home this past weekend and got to help my Nanny Celebrate 90 years young!!!
How lucky am I??
Instead of waiting for milestones to celebrate life, living or anything – what could you do today to celebrate life – YOUR life?
The fact that you got up and are breathing today is good enough!!
Shake it up, do something different, treat yourself, love yourself – stay out of the same old routine and celebrate.
Make it a great day!!!
PS That is just one of the great things working from home for yourself – I could take a trip and visit family and work with my team where I went – oh and making money while doing so!!
New Years Resolutions
Now I know it’s coming up close to the end of January not the beginning and you are probably wondering why I am still talking about NYs Resolutions………..
Did you make any??
How is it going for you??
If you are serious about making 2013 YOUR BEST YEAR YET – then I highly recommend NOT only watching this video by Tony Robbins but also implementing his suggestions.
Make it a great day…oops I meant year!!!!
Conditions of People
For the last several weeks, I have been educating myself in an area, I hate to admit, but I knew little about……..finances.
Now, we all think we know things, but in reality most of us don’t, as 85% of Canadians are in debt, spending $1.45 for every $1 we earn and I can only imagine what the US numbers are. That to me states we really don’t know.
Debt is growing and continues to do so.
I’ve often said, advertising makes us believe that it’s never good enough, fast enough, new enough, big enough or we’re good enough…….so we’re always searching for something to make us feel better, even if only temporary.
We want to keep up with the Jones. By, the way, who the hell are the Jones anyways?? I could never figure that one out!!!
People are stressed more, losing their jobs, (ah job security…….I’ll talk more on that later!!), living pay cheque to pay cheque hoping things will change.
Definition of insanity? Keep doing what you’re doing and expecting things to be different.
Here’s a thought, stop, take a deep breath, start a budget, I know it’s not fun, but you have to know where your money is going, if there’s more month left at the end of the money, you might just be surprised on what you’re spending it. But, maybe you’re just not making enough…….there is alot to go around in this abundant universe, so
Create another stream of income.
Muiltiple streams of income is what is needed these days, unless of course you like working for the man, having them tell you how much you’re worth, when you work and when you can take time off!!
I know so many people that have ‘good’ jobs, live pretty simply and still can’t make ends meet………and yet they hope.
It’s time to wake up and do things differently!!
Aren’t you worth a better life??
Love to hear your thoughts on that!!
Oh yeah, an after thought, if after reading this you’re thinking any ‘yeah buts’…….ask yourself how’s that serving you?
Keeping you small or stuck. Then go back and check in with my last post.
