Five years ago, I had an 8-1/2 month old and my husband and I were expecting our second child. I decided that it was time to quit my ‘real job’ and stay home.
Now, don’t get me wrong, I loved my job… it’s just that working an inner city EMS job wasn’t exactly ideal for this Mom anymore. It was great though and no two days were EVER the same. There is something about helping others that is very satisfying. I can’t tell you how many times I was puked on, bled on or verbally abused by patients–none of it mattered. I loved my job. in fact I was also the little girl who preferred to watch Rescue 9-1-1 over cartoons in grade school. I would sit and wait for our neighbor, a paid firefighter and paramedic, to come home from work to tell me about his day…
Quitting a job I loved so much was difficult for me but I’m so glad I did. I took a step in faith and launched my own business. At that time I had already been working as a Virtual Assistant for several years as part of another company and decided it was time to try it on my own. It was scary, it was exciting. Would I have enough clients? Would I be able to work enough hours? Would I even be successful on my own?
Five years later. Yes, FIVE, it has worked out. I have done more than I’d imagined, I have been successful. I am successful because I am relatively busy, I have clients and customers who trust me and respect my opinions. In fact, I even have a waiting list, people WANT to work with me. Do you know how amazing that feels?
I am so grateful that I have had such awesome clients over the last five years. I have learned a lot and am grateful for how far I have come. I definitely couldn’t have done it without the support of other work-at-home-moms, friends and family. Thank you all so much!
This month has been a very busy one for me. I’m working on a few projects that I will be sharing with you all very soon. I’ve been busy putting the finishing touches on an AWESOME Joint Venture project with none other than my sister, Michelle. I’m participating in a Summit next month and will be sharing details on that very soon.
Today, I’m taking a break and celebrating 5 awesome years. I’m grateful for every one of my clients, I would not be where I am today without each of you.
Thank you, so much– Here is to another 5 years!
