  • I'll still be the dutiful navy wife, following my husband from duty station to duty station and never establishing roots or connections..So probably not.

  • I was asking this question because I was asked the same thing a year and half ago and was in corporate america working as an accountant making great money, but I was not TRULY happy. I was introduced to Arbonne International and now own my own health and wellness company, take great trips, being my own boss, winning great prizes, using amazing products and loving life!! I enjoy sharing great products and our amazing opportunity to others out there that may be in a similar situation as far as answering no to this question. ha! Hope this may help soe of you and I would love to share my journey with Arbonne and how it has changed family life!!!

  • I would be most happy to continue what I am doing. What I am doing is working full time in science, making more and more time for my two girls. I recently declined some new projects so I could have more family time.

  • If our finances keep going the way they're going we're going to have to sell our house. If only my job would give me more hours I could contribute more, but as of right now I can only contribute 90 a week. If that. If we had suitable daycare (I.E. My parents closer) I would be able to get a full time job and contribute more to the home. As far as everything else outside of finances we'll be happy, just not sure what else.

  • Considering my job may be ending by the end of the year, I hope to have found another job that pays the same as this one does. If that's the case, we'll be home owners and nearly debt free. We're also hoping to have custody of my bonus son (in two years, he'll be able to choose which parent he wants to live with).
