My Journey

My Story 

Hi there,

I want to share with you my story. I grew up not having very much. My parents struggled financially. My dad had a couple good jobs ,but struggled due to the economy and getting laid off. They worked hard though to give my sisters and I what we needed and take us to  places like Merriotts, now called Paramount’s Great America, located in Santa Clara, California. My mom ended up on her own and took care of my sisters and I , she was a great mom! She squeezed out money so my younger sister and I could go to trips with our youth group to Disneyland and Paramount’s Great America.

Facing Challenges 


I’m a single mom with two wonderful boys and started the same time I started taking classes at Kaplan University online. I never thought I would be a statistic of going through divorce and being a single mom, but it happens.  I was determined I was going to do well , graduate , start a career and be able to give my boys a lot more. I wasn’t going to allow my circumstances stop me from achieving these goals. I did graduate but struggled to find work for several months which I heard is normal.

It takes the majority of college graduates some time to find employment because employers want someone with experience which is understandable. This makes it tough to find work without the experience , however that’s why there are internships and volunteer work to gain the experience. I needed to find a way to better support my children.  This was the first time in my life that I was on my own with my boys , doing everything by myself to take care of everything and my children

Believing In Ourselves


I was scared but I believed that I would be successful! We have to or we’ll face failure.  We have to keep believing in ourselves and work hard. I was going to be a success story. I did start my own business and love working from home and being there for my boys. I am happy that I don’t have to worry about child care, transportation, the economy, take my boys on vacation when ever I want to. There are many advantages working from home. I love it and many others do as well. I would love to hear from you. Please feel free to leave your comments and/ or send me an email at weightlossforwomen2.com
