“It’s been proven, anyone who is willing to pay the blood, sweat and tears can become a millionaire, but it will not happen overnight! Do it now! Do not wait until your 40 to start your own business and make your million! Become the next successful teen entrepreneur!” Lesa Witherington, “Business Tips for Budding Teen Entrepreneurs”

As a single homeschooling parent, I know the financial struggles involved with homeschooling. We are teaching our children to be independent and would like for them to continue to follow the non-traditional path upon which we have set them.

In 1999 at the office of a network marketing company I got to see first hand the power of the Internet. For a couple of years, I played with the Internet and learned how to use it to market a business.
I started networking with many groups and decided to put my talents to use. I started a small printing business then added VA work to my repertoire. (VA – Virtual Assistant is primarily and online personal assistant.)

In the spring of 2008, Dolly Hooker, a certified coach trainer, reached out and offered me a chance at my dream business. I am now a certified life coach specializing in business coaching and Internet marketing.
Dolly and Patty Benton, my business coach, said it was time to take a leap of faith, quit the part-time job that I used to sublimate my income and get focused. This was just a little bit terrifying, so I did some hard praying. And one morning, I guess God got tired of me not listening to these subtle hints and decided to hit me over the head with it…lol!

After spending my morning asking and praying about leaving my job, I went to work. An hour later a small fire broke out, and I found myself without a part-time job.

The Internet is an ever-changing creation and new ways to connect makes it a constant learning experience. As a coach, I knew I wanted to work with homeschool families and business building with Internet marketing. So I combined the two.
