GREAT TO MEET YOU, I'M MICHELLE STEFFERSON
Where it All Began…
But that was the complete opposite of what was actually happening on the inside. I was in a very unforgiving, thankless Conventional Business that I was a Slave too. I worked 6 days a week 12 hours a day. I was trapped financially but most of all emotionally. I needed to find Time Freedom and make a positive change for my son and I. It was so very important to me that my son grow up in a positive environment and have the luxury of having his mom. I could never be with him for field trips or stay home with him if he was sick. I couldn’t bare that any longer!
So I started looking for a “Plan B”. I needed to make money but I also wanted to be home with my son. The only option….become a successful work at home mom! And I’d love to say bringing this successful work at home mom dream to life was easy,but it wasn’t. There was so much Junk on the internet. Free things does not work and gosh, I’m sure you know what I mean… It can be darn right dream stealing when you see the garbage out there.
Before 2005, I tried so many things out there that never worked for me. Everything from lotions to potions, envelope stuffing, surveys, medical billing…. You name it, I tried it.
If this sounds like you, keep reading.
The Fork in the Road
I’ll bare my soul here… Back in early 2005, I was so fed up with the Conventional business that I nearly walked out of a job!! That’s correct. I couldn’t take it anymore. I saw myself at an early heart attack and considering that my dad passed at 33 when I was 12 because he just worked himself to death, I needed to get out. I called my accountant and told him I was done. He politely said “No disrespect but who will pay you 1000.00 a week because that’s exactly what you need to maintain living in NY with a 2400.00 a month mortgage”
Well, needless to say, I felt so stuck. I hated that feeling!
But one day a few months Later, I saw an ad about Freedom at home and I answered it. Of course, being a single mom and a New Yorker… I was soooo Skeptical. I asked a lot of questions. I decided this was something I HAD to do now!!
And Here is my beautiful WHY: Allow me to Introduce you to my Son Adam (This is Adam at about the age of 10)
My Journey to Positive Change in
My Journey of Working at home has been so incredibly awesome but it hasn’t always been easy.
I faced a very hard time in my life but made a decision to STAND UP AND FIGHT rather than falling down! I went through a very nasty divorce, was facing foreclosure, my son had to be without me much of the time and I had to stay in a full time Conventional business that I couldn’t take anymore. Up until I was able to replace that income and come home full time, my days went a little something like this.
Wake up at 6am. Get my self ready to get out the door and get my son ready for school. Adam would consistently every day ask me “Mom will I get to spend time with you today”?
Greet Employees by 7:30 am and set there work orders. Get out by 8am and field all customer bases through out a 100 mile radius and do all this by 5pm. This meant no lunch and barely a dinner. On the go always. Many times it was McDonald’s for me… Oh yeah.. This was healthy.
By 6pm I was gathering up field reports from employees and had to wait for each crew to come in before I could even go home.
I never knew what time I was getting in on any given day.
When I finally got it, either my son would be asleep already or It would only be about a 1/2 hour of time with him.
Then I would wake up and start all over again. Was it hard work? Absolutely! Did I fall asleep on my computer some nights? Absolutely! Did my house get messy? Absolutely! Did I feel guilty about not spending a lot of time with my son? Absolutely! Did I ever wonder if I was doing the right thing? Absolutely NOT!
