So you go on social media and you see people posting their vacations, their lunches, their new car, and more and you can’t stop and think how can that be me.
That’s me. I’m a stay at home mom and the reality of it is that childcare is too expensive even if I had a full time job. It’s just not realistic for our life. We don’t have help from relatives that could watch our kids for a cheaper price.
I’ll be a stay at home mom for a while but that means making sacrifices because living in California is expensive.
I sit here living a life scrolling through pictures that seem like a dream. I’m not saying I want someone else’s life but it would be nice to be able to get out and explore without having to worry about the cost.
Our goal as a family is to be able to experience, to travel a bit instead of spending on expensive material we rather use our money for adventure.
So how is a bottle of shampoo changing my life. For weeks, I kept messaging a friend and asking her about what she was selling and why and how. All the questions you can imagine. Was this even for me? Why would I spend $199 to start working from home.
To be honest I just couldn’t see it in me to spend that money specially when we could use that money on something else but I weighed all of my options. Okay so $199 that is what I would spend on 2 trips to target and end up with items that I most likely dont even need.
That’s what I did. I started to question what I was going to purchase. Was it something I need or was it out of impulse. I saved money and just like that I invested. I joined my friend.
People call it a pyramid scheme and bash people for working MLMs but in reality this is income for many. I am so thankful for the team I joined. The past weeks they have answered all of my questions, I’ve been on multiple business calls.
The reality of it is I am able to work from home with my toddlers running around, screaming , while I’m cookin and more. All I need is my laptop and my cellphone and that’s it.
What I made a million excuses to has changed me. I feel like I’m doing something productive. I am no longer just scrolling through Instagram or Facebook. I don’t waste time or money on things I don’t need.
If you would had asked me 3, 5 or 10 years ago if I believed in MLMs. I would have probably not even paid attention. I would have ignored it. I would have said I don’t know how to sell. I would have said I don’t have the time.
My goal is to make an extra $200 a month for now but I know from what Im seeing my goal will go up to $500 a month in the next 30 days.
Don’t doubt yourself.
Where there is a will there is a way. Trust me. I was that person with the thousands of excuses.
