Home-Based Business Changed My Life

Many people want something amazing to happen during their lifetime. Some people look for things that may be life changing. The funny this is… When you are looking for something to change your life, it is harder to find. When you stop looking, then that is the time it will fall right into place.

Home-Based Business was like that for me. There was a long road, difficult times, and even some disappointments along the way. When the right opportunity presented itself, however, it was easy. Things just seemed to fall into place on their own.

WHY? HOW? Those are the two questions I hear the most when I share about my home-based business. WHY a home-based business instead of a brick-and-mortar business? HOW did you get where you today? WHY do you like it so much?

Interested? If so, keep on reading and I will tell you my WHY’s and my HOW’s

Why Did I Choose a Home-Based Business?

The idea of having a home-based business is something that interested me for as long as I can remember. Being an entrepreneur and owning my own business is something that I was drawn to most of my life. Over the years, I think I have only had three or four “jobs”. The rest of the time, I have owned my own business. Even when owning and running my own business, I still felt a calling to explore home-based business.

Now that I have a home-based business, I love it! I love the freedom it gives me – I can work from home or almost anywhere in the world.  I love how I can work every day or two days and I mostly love that I am my own boss and I don’t have to answer to anyone except myself.

How Did I Get Where I Am Today?

Loving my home-based business did not happen overnight. There are times it was disappointing, even crushing, but there were also many times of celebration. Although the path has been a bit long, I would not trade my journey for anything!

I started out in the 80’s with a nutrition company and I LOVED it, but I didn’t really do any building.  I was fortunate to have a few customers that bought from me regularly. Without building, it really didn’t grow. It kind of maintained status quo, so I tried some other home-based ventures. There were high times and low times, but I wanted to keep moving forward until my biggest disappointment happened.

I invested $3500 in a home-based business and things were going so well. My business was growing, people were being added to my group all the time. It was amazing and exciting and fun, all at the same time! But then, the company went out of business. They were just gone all of a sudden. I was devastated!!! That “down time” caused me to draw away from home-based businesses… for a good long while.

About 20 years later, in 2006, I got involved in another nutrition company. It was a healthy chocolate company. Yum! Can’t go wrong with chocolate, right? I had a great team. I was excited. I was building my business and I was having a great time doing it! However, the product was extremely expensive. Too expensive for many on my team, as well as our customers, when the housing market crashed. My sales crashed along with it. Another disappointment and I felt like I needed to take a break again. I did, but not as long of a break.

I was introduced to Totally Awesome Cards in 2009.  There was something about it that seemed different than the other companies I had tried. Cards – Real Cards, not e-cards, that are mailed to those you choose. Really neat. I thought, “Who couldn’t benefit from this service?” “Who would want to?” I loved it right away. Plus, since I’ve always been creative, I was excited about the idea of being able to design my own cards to send.  So, I signed up!

When you are looking for something to change your life, it is harder to find.

When you stop looking, then that is the time it will fall right into place.

Why do you LOVE Totally Awesome Cards?

Since 2009, my life has been transformed because of Totally Awesome Cards. Not only did I love the service it provided, but I found myself becoming truly interested in people – appreciating them in a new way, a way I hadn’t experienced before. I love how I can let others know how much they mean to me, and be sincere about it. I also feel good about what I do because I know I am helping others transform their lives every day.  Most of all, I LOVE the feeling I get when I know that I have lifted someone’s day by sending them a card. (Plus, I really love getting cards myself. 🙂 )

The rest is history.  Every day, I learn to love Totally Awesome Cards more. Helping and encouraging others feels like second nature to me. When I was looking for a home-based business to change my life, it was difficult. Each business I tried was just not the right fit for me. When I stopped looking, however, is when the real magic was able to happen! How awesome is that???
