About me

I am a successful entrepreneur that gets to work from home. I am enjoying my sons as they are growing up.

It’s not all about the money

As I take my 7th grader to school in the morning, I get to see a lot of the other parents dropping off their kids. Many of them are walking a tight time tightrope. They can’t get their kids to school too early because the school policy yet they have a commute that they need to hit the road. Sometimes, they drive like maniacs to pass me before we hit the school zone and even then they push driving 24 mph in a 20.

On top of the morning rush, they spend 1 to 3 hours per day burning money through their engine while they burn their time. Then, they come home tired, eat, watch a little tv then go to bed so they can get up and do it again.

Years ago, I made the commitment to work for myself. Not only do I have extra time that I save on my carpet commute and extra money by not driving, I’m flexible for when my son needs me. If he needs to stay late for band practice, he can call and I’m there in less than 10 minutes. We often go to Sonic after school for chocolate malts and bonding.

If my wife and I worked outside our home, he would have a 45 minute walk each way with a heavy backpack and a trumpet case. He would have to cross two four lane, divided streets and only one of them has a traffic light at his crossing point. Then he would be on his own for a couple of hours until we came home.

Having a home based network marketing business is not all about the money. For a lot of people, like me, it’s what it gets me. I get to be a major influence on how my sons grow up. I get to know who my sons are and guide them to do better. They’re only going to be this young once and then it’s gone.

I get to do things with his activities. I know at his age he wouldn’t admit it, but the way he lights up when I show up, I can tell he’s glad to see me there.
