It Was Exactly A Year Ago Today That Our Lives Did A 360

So I was sitting at my desk at home working on August 31st, 2016. The day started off normally. The alarm went off, my husband left for work, I showered and started my daily routine of processing clinical workflows.

Everything was perfect until my phone rang at about 10:00 that morning. The voice on the other end was the nurse who worked at the manufacturing plant in Spring Hill, Tennessee, calling to tell me that he believed my husband had a stroke.

As a nurse, I have always trusted my education and training. But this day in 2016, all of my objectivity flew righ out of the window.

I was in full blown panic mode. I could not think. I could barely breathe. Never in my imagination did I ever think that this would happen to my husband.
I raced to the plant, scooped him up (because men are stubborn and he refused the ambulance and wanted me to take him), and we raced to the closest Medical Center.

Every time he spoke, he was breaking my heart. When I asked him a question, he wouldn’t answer. Instead, he was repeating the same question back to me, but slurring his words horribly.
“Stay with me okay?” He repeated this back to me.

“You know you are my whole world right?” Also repeated.

There was so many things I wanted to say to him, but in my panicked mind, I could not think of one of them. All I could do was tell him how much I loved him, and that he made my life amazing in these passed 16 years, and that I could not imagine my world without him in it.

It was verified that he had a pretty big stroke and moving forward, our life together would dramatically change.

So spring forward to December 2016, the day after Christmas. He had a second stroke. He was okay, but it was right around this time that I knew I would have to find a second job.

I have always been blessed in being able to find nurse work. Sometimes I worked a fulltime job and 2 part time jobs. But this would no longer work for me. My goal was to spend more time with him, not find another job that would take my time away from home.

So, I started looking into my own home based business. And trust me when I say, there was a lot of “programs” out there that I fell for, and lost a ton of funds that were valuable to my household. But those people who run those programs, they do not care that my household finances were crumbling because my husband could no longer work. They didn’t care of the amount I was spending each month to prevent him from having another stroke.

That is the difference between them and me. I actually do care. I want to teach and watch others succeed.

So I found this Online Business Education program and invested in it. I never thought of myself as a sales person or a marketer. Pfft, I am a nurse and I remember saying “really?” silently to myself for a few weeks.

His stroke, became a turning point in our lives that showed us that we needed to change things. We needed to change our mindset and our behaviors if we wanted a life with more time freedom. It completely became our game changer.

What I am asking you to do is take a chance and step out of your comfort zone long enough to read this e-book. It is free so please don’t feel that you have to buy anything.

Trust me when I say, I am a nurse and I never in my wildest dreams thought I would ever own and run my own home business. This E-book changed my entire world and I am hoping it will give you a cause to stop and think about what is really important to all of us “regular” people. It taught me to really define my “why”. Mine is my husband and my family.

What is yours?
