The birthing pains of this website only began a few months ago, however how I got there took many years……. 24 to be exact.
When I was 19 I took a workshop with a company (whom I will not name here) to learn about cosmetics and how to use them so I could sell them better. It turned out to be so much more than cosmetics, they taught me about how to apply things and why.
I learned so much in that workshop and most of it has stuck with me all these years.
Now that doesn’t mean I implemented that knowledge in my own life on a daily basis. In fact just the opposite, I only used it randomly for many years.
Through the years, I picked up more information. I read magazines at the checkout, listened to other women, even bought a few books. It was like an obsession, even though I didn’t recognize it as one until recently. Mind you this was all just my curiosity, I had no plan for this gathering of information (other than to use it on myself).
In the mean time my real life moved on, I married Chris and had kids (Jordan and Chelsea). They were my whole world. I was a stay at home mom for the most part.
In 2000 I took a tax class and began working for my Mom in her tax office a few hours a week during tax season. When the kids went to school I worked more hours. Eventually I took over the business. I was a tax preparer for 16 years.
Then the unthinkable happened. Jordan and Chelsea grew up. (GASP! NOOOOOOOO!)
College years were approaching and college choices were a big discussion in our house: for both kids as they were only 1 grade apart.
Jordan chose a college 1200 miles away. People asked how I could allow that, but I ask how could I not? It’s his dream, who I am I to hold him back?
Then Chelsea chose a college in the same state as Jordan’s. So we did what any normal insane parent would do…..we packed up and moved 1200 miles.
I sold my tax business, my husband found a new job, and we sold our house and moved to Florida.
Needless to say it’s been an adjustment. Since we have moved I have been soul searching, trying to find my next “thing”. I no longer wanted to prepare taxes, I was burnt out and needed change.
Then it hit me……...why not take all this knowledge I have gathered over the years and share it with everyone?
So here it is!! Me sharing my knowledge and now my life for the whole world to see.
A tad bit overwhelming as I am a very private person.
I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and gathering more to share with you.
Thank you for reading my story!
Have a fabulous day and God bless!!!
