Stay At Home Mom Gets To Stay Home!
Written on March 7th, 2019
I met my amazing husband in 1999 and we married in 2004. We are blessed with two beautiful, healthy, vibrant children. We were lucky enough to have one of each. I have been a stay at home mom for the last nine years and I would not change a thing, but it has been difficult financially which at times does cause strain on a marriage. However, our marriage has always been stronger!
My husband is gone five to six days at a time working to support our family which has taken him away from us all the time. He is usually home for only a couple of days but often has to return to the highway within 36 hours. We have always wanted to get out of the trucking industry because it isn’t a great way for a family to live – always being separated.
This separation has been very difficult on our children. Every Sunday is not a good day at our house because that's when Kevin leaves for the week. Often our daughter cries and both our children miss their Daddy terribly. It's heart breaking to see you kids hurting, especially when you're not able to change it!
In September of 2017, our daughter was starting school. Being that both our children are now in school full time, I wanted to start contributing to our family financially again. I knew that I didn’t want to be an employee again. I wanted the flexibility to come and go as I please and still be available to my family at the drop of a hat! My initial thought was to go back to school so that I could start my own business.
I knew I wanted to follow my passion with holistic health. After meeting my dear friend, Olga, I had developed a strong passion for holistic health. She introduced this world to me several years ago. When my husband and I were thinking of having children, my passion grew stronger as it continued when I lost my Dad to cancer in 2012.
I had planned on registering for Holistic Nutritionist with the Canadian School of Natural Nutrition. It was highly recommended school and I could do the training online. I was already with finances and all to go in this direction.
My husband and I thought that this path would enable us to finance our other dream of having a hydroponic vegetable garden business in the future. This fact would allow my husband to finally be home with his family and get his health where we want it. My husband has type 2 diabetes and his work as an owner operator is preventing him from being his healthiest. We thought this plan would get him home as fast as possible.
But then I came across an ad in my newsfeed that changed my life …
To be honest, I'm surprised I even clicked on this ad because it was completely out of my character to do that. You see, my interaction on social media consisted of uploading photos, sharing friends' posts, and saying Happy Birthday/Anniversary to people. That's it! I didn't play the games or anything that would take me to a third-party site.
I guess when you're ready to receive information - you will attract and act on it! I knew that the digital world was changing and I heard lots of people working online. So when I came across that ad, I didn't hesitate to check it out.
Boy, that ad opened my eyes and made me realize I can have a better future for myself and my family. I watched the no cost workshop and was very impressed by what I saw. I was amazed how quickly these people changed their lives and I wanted to have that same opportunity.
I jumped in with both feet and haven't looked back since. My online business has helped us be able to travel a bit more. I coordinated a meet and greet for people in Ontario doing the business. We made a camping weekend out of it and had our families there too. We masterminded and helped each other.
It has been an incredible journey of self discovery and learning! I'm amazed by how much I've learned and how many new skills I've mastered. I started because I wanted to get my husband off the highway but it has become so much more. I have developed a passion for helping people. Seeing other people change their lives through my mentorship is such a rewarding feeling.
My goals that I spoke of will still happen. I’m still going back to school and I still plan on starting my hydroponic vegetable garden, but it will all be financed and happen sooner then I planned. I will get my husband off the road sooner which will make our entire family happy and I can do all of this from the comfort of my own home!
I have found and become a part of a community to build my FUTURE! I have been running my own successful online business since July 2017!! I have helped many people during this time and I am looking to continue helping people change their lives and have more family time!!!!
