Hello Everyone! I am Online Affiliate entrepreneur looking to learn, share and meet like minded successful people like myself and make money while doing it!
I have been in the fashion retail industry for over 20 years working in product development and sourcing. My journey up until now, has been long crazy hours, travel and lots of moves to go "where the job is". 8 big moves around the US to be exact!
Can you relate? Do you work long hours, feel like you never see your family and even your own dog tilts his head when you walk in the door looking at you as if you were a stranger!!!
Within that 20 years , I have been downsized 4 times, made it through multiple mergers, and bankruptcies . I had to make some big life decisions and it was extremely stressful as you can imagine.
Throughout those times I had to travel for work, miss family events and holidays. I even dealt with several health issues due to the hours and stress, including the scary BIG C...cancer! Yet , I still kept doing the daily grind thinking this is what I had to do, what I was supposed to do.
Since I started the corporate journey 20 years ago, I never felt fulfilled or that it was my true calling or purpose. I am good at what I do , as I am sure most of you are, but the gut feeling of happiness and finding "it" wasn't there. I moved from state to state, job to job thinking ..this is going to be the right job! I had been searching for at least 10+years for what would allow me time, freedom, flexibility ,purpose and passion in my life.
I didn't want my own brick and mortar business or my own fashion line. I also looked into franchising , but yet again it was a lot of money up front. I know the apparel business like the back of my hand ,but also knew it wouldn't allow me any of my goals that I was seeking in my life. It was truly time for me to figure out what that was for me.
So here I am at Wealthy Affiliate and I am so excited to be on this fantaboulous journey with you all!! :) Learning, time & freedom in life!
