Self Improvement Leads to Home Improvement

Our family has been going through some remodeling in our house the last few weeks. We built our house a little over 10 years ago. We weren't really ready to build our house but the house we were renting was sold and we had to move. We had the lots purchased already but had no intention of building our house just yet. Therefore, we had to kind of do the bare minimum. Part of our home before was an office for me because for 14 years I had a CPA practice in a separate part of my home for that business. That business was very good for my family and for myself but as we had more kids and things got more hectic we just decided it was not working anymore. For all those years we were lucky, the kids didn't go to daycare and either my husband or myself was always home with the kids. But..... what we didn't have was time together as a family where we could all be together, MOM, DAD and the kids.
One day 3 1/2 years ago, I was introduced to a team called MyFamilyDreamTeam and life took a big change. I started working from home with this team - part-time to begin with - with this great group of moms. I quickly saw this to be a business that I could do from home around my kids and allow me to be home more with my children.
This leads to our home improvement. As I joined this team, I realized that this was what I wanted to do and I sold my CPA practice. I really wanted to be able to focus my time on my new business. I have learned so much in the last 3 1/2 years being a part of this team. I would never be where I am right now in life if I hadn't met this group of great, powerful women. They have taught me how to be positive always, how to lead, how to develop and be part of a great team. The office I had before for my CPA practice is now going to be a nice family room, we are adding just a small home office for me that was a porch on our house that we never used. And much of the work has been done by myself and my husband which would have never been possible before. One of us was always working while the other was so busy with the kids. Now we both have time to be with the kids and do the things in our home that we've always wanted to do.

So I'm not bragging about the projects we are doing on our home but just sharing that these things would not be happening now except for the fact that I joined this team. I'm so thankful every day when I get up and I have so much joy to go to work and help other people develop themselves and develop their businesses as well.
