I was married at 18, had
my daughter at 20 and divorced at 23. My early corporate career
was challenging as I juggled being a single mom while climbing
the corporate ladder in facilities management for major
companies. Then my mom’s breast cancer diagnosis caused me to
shift my focus back to get my undergraduate degree and then to
medical school. I quickly learned that medicine was about the
sickness business and it just wasn’t for me. It was then that I
met Mark. When we married, I immediately shifted from single mom
to happily married in a blended family with five kids!
Mark had a 30 year career in
medical sales and to enable him to leave the corporate rat race,
we opened three franchise restaurants in hopes of creating time
and financial freedom, neither of which happened. Mark was
unable to leave and I ended up running the daily restaurant
Then in 1999, we were
introduced to a US manufacturer that was looking for individuals
to market for them. Their unique business model made so much
sense - without the negatives that the restaurant business had -
no large investment or financial risk, no employees or overhead,
and no working 365 days of the year! It actually gave us back
what we had lost…hope.
We now have a life where
we are free from the debts of the restaurants and school and are
creating a secure retirement allowing us to live the life we
dreamed of. We have a lakefront home where we love to have
coffee on the boat and fish with our grandkids.
We Are Changing Lives is a
community of highly successful men and women who are helping
others change their lives by creating a life of freedom,
