In 2006, Josh & I got married. Ready to take on the world right? ๐. A year into our marriage the financial crisis of 2007/2008 hit his business HARD. We were happy go lucky newlyweds & suddenly - we were BROKE. We spent YEARS sitting in debt. The kind of debt where people threaten to freeze your assets kind of debt. Josh left finance & joined the military at 27 in hopes to better our life & secure a stable future for us, while serving like he had wanted to for so long. But a military salary when you are struggling in debt isnโt necessarily an income to get ahead. BUT I worked, he served, we minimally got by. Fast fwd a year & we were expecting our 1st baby that Iโd be home with because of the crazy sched of his new career. A single income military family with piles of debt. you get the picture. We shared a single car, our debt sat, WIC to help us get by. Daily calls that weโd just hang up on. That was our life.
After we had our 2nd baby, out of desperation to do something for myself & lose baby weight, I stumbled upon a way to build a business while getting in the best shape of my life. I knew nothing ABOUT business, I just knew what I was doing to get in shape WORKED & helped me. I fell in love with taking care of myself&truly believed these programs could help EVERYONE. When people started asking me what I was doing, a business was bornโจ. If I could figure out how to earn an income by helping people through the healthy lifestyle I started, I sure as heck could help others learn to too. So I learned as I went, & got to work. Within a year, our life took a 180, & we just kept GOING.
All the trials, tears, struggles, collector calls, frozen bank accounts.. they were ALL 1000% worth it. Because thatโs what drives me. I will NEVER go back there. & I sure as heck will make sure others know they can pull themselves out of a pit too. All it takes is heart & hustle, & telling yourself to get to work. THAT is WHY I mentor others to do this. THAT is the GIFT of this business.
Donโt let any person tell you that โeveryone strugglesโ & to sit in your lot. You deserve SO.MUCH.MORE. Take everything thatโs come against you, & turn it into something magical๐ซ
