Entrepreneur. Wife. Networker. Coach. Freedom Fighter.
My journey started out like many others. Grew up in a small town in Wisconsin (Go Packers!). Typical middle class family. Divorced parents, whom both remarried and had their own children. We spent summers on our pontoon boat going down the Rock River, and winters trying to thaw from the frozen tundra.
From an early early age I knew that I was destined for more.
I think it was age 9 that in my belly I knew I was going to be wildly successful.
However by the time I hit high school, like most college-bound students… I was left with the question: “What the heck do I do with my life?”
Maybe you can relate.
After battling a near-death experience and tragic illness from age 16-18, I somehow managed to graduate on time from school…but now with a matured, “life is short” mentality. What mattered to teenagers, didn’t matter to me anymore. I just wanted to get out and make a difference.
I worked a lot of dead end retail jobs. They were mindless. Paid the bills (mostly). But didn’t stir my hearts passion. I was getting no more closer to my life’s purpose.
Enrolling in Nursing School was a no-brainer. I had bad nurses in the hospital and a few good ones. I wanted to change lives, remember? But a career in healthcare was not for me. I’d fight with doctors over the care of my patients, and I wanted to HEAL the sick, not medicate and mask symptoms.
So I became a Nutritionist, which was a PASSION of mine. But it didn’t pay well, so I failed at that too.
It all brought me to the spring of 2006, when my boyfriend (now husband) at the time dragged me down to my first MLM presentation.
