Yes, I wanted to contribute to my family financially. Yes, I wanted to show my children what hard work and perseverance looked like. Yes, I loved the idea of taking stress off my hard-working hubby. But, I also needed to personally reach my full potential. I knew I had something inside of me that needed to reach the world. Grit. Determination. Leadership. And hustle. And it would be a damn shame not to utilize those qualities in a business sense. I had been quoted as saying that I would “NEVER do one of those home-based businesses.” For one, I hated the idea of making my social media a giant advertisement. And, even more importantly, I honestly didn’t believe that anyone could make real money with those things. So why waste my precious time?
