About Jaz333
Joined April 2019
I am a divorced single mother of 5 children - ages 26, 18, 16, 11, and 7. My oldest made me a 1st-time grandmother in October 2019 and my youngest is on the autism spectrum so to say the least, my family keeps me busy!

For many years I was an office manager and accounting manager but as my family grew, the 70+ hour work weeks were getting to be too much to handle so I left the office world and, once cabin fever set in, I started a residential/commercial cleaning company. This allowed me to create my own schedule, be my own boss, and create some income for my family however, after a bad car crash several years ago, janitorial work became difficult for me with the injuries I sustained.

I began searching for other income options that would also allow me to spend more time at home with my children. I also researched ways to relieve the chronic pain, other than the long list of medications that was thrown at me. I found that various herbs not only helped me heal but had the ability to take away much of the pain, most days anyhow.

I am now enrolled in a program with Dr. Christopher's School of Natural Healing working toward Master Herbalist Certification and I plan to continue on afterward to get a degree in Naturopathic Medicine or possibly Integrated Medicine. My plan is to eventually open an alternative medical office that features holistic remedies and preventative care through nutrition with the use of herbs and other natural healing modalities.

I am hoping what I do here with Wealthy Affiliate can help me finish my education and make my dreams of opening an alternative medical practice come to fruition but also help to educate the general public about herbal and other natural holistic alternatives to medical care that are out there.

Looking forward to working with everyone here at WA!
Thanks, Shannon

Great Goals Jaz you have been a great help to me here. I would like to ask if you have achieved your money goals yet?

I have received some small commissions but no I haven't reached any of my goals as far as online income. To be fair though, I haven't committed a great deal of time to my website as I have been putting most of my effort into finishing my schooling.

Every time i visit any profile here im taken back at the connections you instantly have with people who are willing to go out on a limb and share about themselves. Both my children are ASD and although high functioning that can i think be worse at times. Its magnified by two and comes with an entirely different set of parenting standards and a lot of change on our part, + they have both hit teenagerdum then to see you doing this alone at least my wife and i have done this 15+ years and rolling like a freight train, i also got it wrong twice before so i feel like i owe her at least those 10 yrs of practice back. HATS OFF TO YOU, already a success and should be your children's hero.

Anyways it was nice to read about you Jaz, as i begin to network here at WA, wishing you all the success and whatever else you wish to gain via your time here, i hope you have a great day.

Thank you for the kind words, you made my day :) It is difficult juggling everyone's needs and wants but somehow I seem to make it all work. I can't imagine having 2 special needs children - that has to be very difficult. I commend you and your wife!

It's great connecting with you - I hope you keep in touch!

Thank you for the response! We're all safe and healthy here, so far so good! I hope the same for you and yours!

Until recently, I haven't gotten as much time to work on my site as I would like (Slow and steady wins the race right?) but I'm loving being a part of WA. The community is an excellent resource, and I've met a few great friends too :)

Best, Shan

Hello @Jazz333 been seeing your posts here and there. Thanks for the follow and I have followed you back. Wow - five kids. Totally appreciate the stress that goes into that. 30 years ago I became a divorced father of 6 kids. Remarried which brought the total up to 9 with the blended family. My wife has been into alternative medicine for much of her adult life. A retired RN and Professor of Nursing, she constantly reminds me of what I should do, eat and take. Hopefully, one day I will get her to do a blog on what she has experienced and learned over the years when dealing with an old codger like me. Wishing you great success in 2020 with WA.

It's great to meet you. Wow - 9 children in your blended family! I can only imagine how much your family saves in medical bills with a Professor of nursing with knowledge of alternative medicine in the house!

I would certainly be interested in hearing (or reading) what she has to say! I'm sure she has some really great stories to tell.

Stay safe & healthy ;)
Best, Shannon

Yes, she does - since she was warning her colleagues about the dangers of diet drinks well before anything was generally published. All the best to you and yours. Steve

Great goals you have and I wish you great success in all you do!

My wife was a practice administrator and office manager for a Chiropractic practice with multiple offices and she trained the staff and other personnel in numerous other offices over many years. She and I also set up owned and ran a medical billing company for several years focusing primarily on those same practices as well as a few others.

One of the first companies I ever set up and ran was a commercial cleaning company where we had small crews take care of restaurants primarily - though we also did some residential cleaning - mainly move-outs and preps for real estate investors and property management companies. So it is interesting that we seem to have somewhat similar interests at least in some respects.

Again thanks for following me - and I look forward to following your success!

Best regards,

L.D. Sewell
