One day I woke up and realized that the success I worked so hard to build was just an illusion. As a young child, I was determined to rise out of poverty by being the first in my family to go to college. This determination led to a track scholarship, military service, a Ph.D. in Higher Education, and esteemed career as a Director for a large private university. Though I was enjoying my success and the income that came with it, I was also becoming keenly aware of my seven-day work weeks, enormous stress, and deteriorating health. Most disturbingly, I was noticing how often people were fired without warning or retired to live off the only retirement plan available…their personal savings.

That day I made a conscious decision to change my future. On the side, I tried MLM’s and opened a small business. Although the small business continues to feed my soul and some money could be earned through an MLM, neither was enough to replace my income. Disappointing, yes, but I knew there was something bigger and more fulfilling out there, I just needed to find it.

One day, a friend introduced me to the Life On Your Own Terms team and its partnership with multi-billion dollar company and its online store. I fell in love with both, and after doing the math, knew I had finally found the right opportunity.

I have dedicated my life to educating, empowering, and equipping others to reach their goals. I am blessed to have found an organization where I can change my future while honoring my calling.
