Two years ago our family was in a lot of distress. My husband had been laid off from his senior executive role. He couldn't find work and our savings had long disappeared. We were really sinking in a sea of debt. We were just one small disaster away from losing our home and car. And I was overwhelmed at the thought of relocating our kids to a local school from the one that they were presently going to and loved.
This wasn't supposed to happen. We were your normal well-educated middle class family. We had university degrees. We paid our taxes. We had worked as senior managers in 'blue chip' organisations. Yet here we were facing bankruptcy.
After two years of looking (unsuccessfully) for work in Australia my husband (in the St Kilda jumper) finally got a job overseas. But I stayed behind with the kids. For the next two years we only saw each other only on some school holidays. Though we had some regular income the emotional stress just kept building.
Together for a short visit in Malaysia
Something had to change.
I was searching online and although I didn't even imagine becoming an entrepreneur, the ad resonated with me somehow. After some deep thinking and consideration we realised that this was something that we could NOT not do.
My husband chucked in his overseas job and came home. Now life has taken on a shine and meaning of a different kind. We have discovered the magic of THIS business. It's absolutely possible to make great money and our stress levels have eased way off. We feel liberated and in charge of our lives in a way we could not have imagined before. And our kids can stay at the school that they love too.
If we can do it YOU can too! Life CAN be SENSATIONAL!!
