  • Personal Statement

    As far as who I am,  I was married for 13 years but hit a huge fork in the road not too long ago !  That's when me and my husband separated and me and my daughter were faced to start a new life for ourselves!   I can't begin to tell you how scared I was.  Shortly after my separation, I literally hit ROCK BOTTOM FINANCIALLY.  On a single mom's income at the time, I could not do it all!  I lost my house, I lost my car, among many other things!   To top it off, I lost my self esteem.  I felt like the biggest failure and I felt so hopeless.  I want you to know that I am not ashamed to share my story because I truly hope what I've been through and what I have accomplished to have a much better life can motivate others because IF I CAN DO IT, SO CAN YOU!  The whole world is out there for us to conquer!  You just need that mindset in my opinion. 

    I love to encourage people that you CAN be successful in anything you set out to do.  There are options.  You don't have to live paycheck to paycheck!  I remember I didn't know where my next $$$ dollar was going to come from.  It was sooooo bad!   My daughter would ask me to buy her this or take her somewhere and it became a broken record of me saying no, not this week sweetie.   

    After I hit My Rock Bottom, I had to figure out a way to get out of the huge mess I was deeply in.  I decided to roll my sleeves up, find a home business that I could do in my spare time to make extra money so I could turn my life around.  Thank god, I never gave up!  My daughter was my biggest why.  It was so important for me to show her I am not a failure.  She is not only my daughter but she has literally become my best friend.

    To make a long story short, I am happy to report that things have completely changed.  We recently moved into a house that I can call my own and we are able to do so much more now without me saying NO all the time.  I guess you could say that I am a Proud Work at Home Mom, Online Entrepreneur, Personal Growth Coach and Marketing Trainer who is a Loyal, Positive, Follow your Dreams Kind of Gal!  Again, if I can do it, so can you!  My purpose is to help as many people as I can and encourage and inspire other’s to follow their passion and their dreams and to give them the belief in themselves to go for what they are searching for and to never give up on achieving their goals! Never ever give in or give up!

    You MUST live your life the way you want to and not by what circumstances are placed in front of you!  When I lost my car and house, heck, I wanted to just cry all the time but what good was that going to do ?!?!?!  I simply learned these few words:  It is UP TO YOU to change those circumstances and to use them as a drive to reaching what you want to accomplish! 

    My life literally has changed and I am so grateful!  Now, I help others by giving back.

    Hugs, Dana
