Do you know what brought me to the World-Wide-Web, writing blogs and creating YouTube videos?
It was divorce.
One week before my 19th birthday I said, “I do!” and stayed married fo 26 years.
I sincerely believed that I would be married forever.
My husband would work to financially support the family, I would take care of the house and kids and we would live happily ever after.
I was not prepared for what would follow.
After all the skills that came along with running a home, and raising children and countless hours of volunteer work at church… I had zilch for a resume, my last job was in 1979 and I didn’t know what the hell I was going to do to support myself.
So I did a bunch of odd jobs while I tried to figure it all out. (this pic is me at a house I used to clean)
One day I had the thought to teach people, who were just like me (right brained and scattered) to get organized.
So I developed a course, started a meet-up group and taught it over the phone to people.
Once I saw that it had value I taught it live in adult schools and it was confirmed, it had great potential!
I was sooooo excited! (Could you imagine how excited I was?!)
People loved it, and I was getting all teary-eyed hearing how I was helping people!
So I moved ahead with getting it online. It seemed like the smartest thing to do.
Not only could I stop painting offices after hours, scrubbing toilets and floors and standing out in the cold day after day (I also was a crossing guard – See pic lol) but I had a profession I was passionate about!
