Curves Ahead….

Sure, I would love to have it easy. I would love to be able to snap my fingers and get exactly what I want. However, you and I both know that is not REALITY.

I totally get that, but than I see people having success around me. Isn’t that the American Dream?  Reach for our dreams and find success? 

  ** Side note: SUCCESS is NOT the same for everyone. That is for another day……

We have been told:

  • “work for what you what”
  • “life isn’t easy”
  • “money doesn’t grow on trees”
  • “what hurts you will only make you stronger”

Let’s get back to the American Dream….

I WANT it!  I worked hard in gymnastics in order to compete, I danced 4 days a week and worked out the other 3 days.  I spent 12 years in school to get a diploma and 4 years in college to get a degree!  When I was hired for my first REAL Job, I had a year of probation before I earned vacation time.

So why did I think working on-line was going to be any different? 

Reality Check ….. 

I have spent the last year LEARNING, hitting ROADBLOCKS, and trying different PATHS!  I have spent time investing in myself. I have seen my success grow. I have tried and failed a few times. 

No Worries though!

I looked back and realized that my LIFE has been ONE BIG LEARNING CURVE!

  • I tried soccer…. I am not that coordinated
  • I changed my degree 4 times in college…
  • I tried Social Work….I got to emotionally connected
  • I tried to sell Insurance…. Too many cold calls
  • I worked for a paper…too many rules


  • I learned that I like to run.
  • I learned about communication although I didn’t get that degree.
  • I didn’t like social work, but I LOVED Prevention Work!
  • Getting licensed as an Insurance Agent gave me the confidence to learn more!
  • The paper pointed out that I LOVE Marketing!

Everything I’ve done has led me to where I am now.  I have spent years filling my toolbelt with skills and lessons learned.  Get Rich Quick is not sustainable!  Our Learning Curves are what guides us to maintain and grow.

God Bless Learning Curves!
