Hello there Sunshine, welcome to my blog and good day to you… as my fingers strike the keyboard I can hear the robins & magpies chirping outside, the sun is rising & I just know it is going to be a beautiful, rewarding & satisfying day.
A little about me… I grew up in rural Cariboo Country in British Columbia, Canada surrounded by the great outdoors, meadows & horses. My dad was an avid family man who loved nature; blessed to a stay-at-home mom who was passionate about her flower beds & painting. With my sister & brother, our weekends were full of camping, gold panning, fishing, hiking, horse riding clinics & horse shows.
I spent most of my youth in 4-H Horse Clubs. It instilled a heart & passion for self-development, continuous education, creativity, of learning to do by doing and knowing that helping others helps ourselves.
Dad was very entrepreneurial with extra odd jobs, adventures, & a business of his own. I remember selling worms as a kid, doing landscape projects, taking in & breaking out other folk’s colts & fillies.
When it came to Network Marketing in the 1990s, I was always everyone’s best customer attending endless house parties & town markets & events, everyone’s best cheerleader; I never really felt the pull to partake in any of them. It wasn’t until my kids were almost grown & I was in my mid 40s that I finally got “pulled” emotionally & mentally to Network Marketing…
& it wasn’t because I needed income … I needed a Positive Circle, happiness… I had taken a new job promotion that began causing me a great deal of stress evolving into negative health issues. The kind of ones that cause panic attacks, deep chest pains, my hair beginning to fall out, unexpected weight gain, depression & me wanting to sleep ALL the time…
I started to be “open” to ideas & opportunities that would help me leave my toxic, but great paying job. With my children grown & Facebook gaining momentum as a social connector; I was pulled back to my primary love of helping others.
I ventured excitedly into the world & adventure of Internet Marketing in the fall of 2013 & quickly burnt through my “warm market.” I possessed zilch for social media marketing skills & being candid I didn’t understand even the basics of building a sustainable viable business nor a deep understanding of how this amazing industry really works…
So like so many other friends & marketers out there on Social Media; I had two choices…
Quit or Figure It Out
Well Dad and Mom didn’t raise “No Quitter” haha… Soo…
Again I focused on “being open” to learning & sought to understand Social Media & Attraction – Content Marketing. I was eager to learn & apply “How it would feel IF YOU DIDN’T have to chase your friends or hound your family, nor send endless copy paste messages in social media.”
By discovering these skills; taking daily action, being an elastic learner, tackling concepts without being super tecky; it quickly re-built my faith & belief of long term success in our profession. It impressed upon me how passionate I am about enlightening, encouraging & educating. I love helping women succeed in the online space, making new friends daily around the world on social media platforms that connect us.
Daily I have the blessing to pass on the wealth of knowledge, hope & empowerment. I have hit top ranks within my businesses, crossed stages, accepted awards, best selling collaborative author, been featured as “Woman of the Month” in business branding & educators groups because of my continuous contributions & even been interviewed by other top earner company teams.
Imagine the freedom & gift of working from home/ phone full-time around you and your families needs; with less stress & more bless in your life! I know I was super appreciative of the freedom & flexibility of an online business when I was full time caring for my Dad & Mom when Dad lost his vision. Truly loving the blessings that this “LapTop Life” has given me.
I’m currently with my “Beloved Beast Bob” (husband) as we live full time & travel in our motorcoach & explore western Canada & the USA with winter months in Mexico. I love working my online business from our travelling garden patio or sitting in the co-captain’s chair as the miles go by.
