This is my story (at least a small part of it)
I am a Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother.
A Daughter, Sister, Niece, Cousin & Friend.
I may struggle at times, but I never give up.
I am a fighter for what I want and what I believe in.
I work hard to do my best and always try to give 110%.
I treat others the way I would like to be treated.
Like so many others, I am a Survivor of Domestic Violence.
I tell you this because it is the reason for this chapter of my life.
As a result of abuse, I suffered an injury years ago that has affected my
life more and more as I have gotten older. Initially, I thought my life was
over. But as I mentioned above I never give up. So, I just had to learn how to
do common everyday things differently.
It took about a year to finally be able to manage a daily routine. The hardest
part for me was to accept the fact that I just couldn’t do the same things I did
before the injury. Unfortunately, I never bounced back 100%. I couldn’t get
around like I did before and always felt like I just couldn’t “keep up”.
I was a bartender at the time and I could run circles around that place and
take care of every single customer by myself, if needed. If fact, I did
exactly that one Saturday night, ’bout killed myself, I worked my butt off,
but I loved every second of it.
I have been called a workaholic more than once. But after my injury, it was
painstakingly difficult. I couldn’t even be on my feet an entire shift and
I certainly couldn’t move fast enough to take care of my customers in a way
that I was happy with. I finally had to give up that line of work altogether,
which devastated me.
I started doing office/administrative work. Eventually that even became
difficult for me. Sitting in a chair for 8 hours became more than I could
handle. However, I held out as long as I could.
I have now been declared disabled, but I am determined to make it without the
help of any government assistance. So, I guess you can now call me a
struggling Entrepreneur. I am trying to make a living online from home. It is
not easy starting out. But at least I can work my own hours and when I need
to stop I don’t have to answer to anyone else.
The one thing I keep hearing is that in order to be successful online, I must
get my name and my face out there. I have to have a following. I have to let
people know who I am and build trust with them. So here I am; telling you a
small part of my story and why I am doing this. I don’t want to bore you with
too much for now. We all have had our rough times and there are plenty of
blessed souls out there whose had it worse than I have and my heart goes out
to each and every one of you.
I just want to invite you to follow me on my journey as I build my business.
I believe that with enough hard work and perseverance and a little help from
each of you I can make this work. I am trying very hard to make this a
success. And just like everything else in my life; my plan is …….
NEVER GIVE UP!!
Thank you 🙂
