fyshuk Hooked On Life women
Grab a cup ‘o Joe and share what’s on your mind for an hour on this MONDAY, JUNE 16.

Life is a lot of things beautiful, unexpected, challenging and a million other things in between.

What you and I need to remember and cultivate within is that when we walk on a path of our DREAMS, our passion shines through everything we do, making us the natural carriers of success.

Many people wait for a long time to begin feeling happy and fulfilled. What they’re missing is LIFE in its entirety, beauty and power. It is a process that we enjoy, though our DREAMS help us to define our goals that we aim and shoot at it. But the arrow’s trajectory is under your control, in your hands. For the arrow represents YOU and your vision, decision-making every step of the way.

Being Hooked On Life definitely determines your success in life, your joy and ultimate contribution you are creating for yourself and us around you.

What is your MAGIC to be and stay HOOKED ON LIFE?

    • wendi watson says:

      Good Morning Happy Monday and A Great New week! I am very passionate about my family, my children first off! They are the ones I want to guide, nuture, teach, learn from, and also be able to give them the gifts of compassion, respect, truth, love, and loyalty to each other. Sometimes a brother or a sister are all you have to be your best friend or confidant I was proud to watch my two sons as we were on the turnpike on Saturday a group of Service men walked in and they walked over and shook their hands and thanked them…therefore i feel the passion in guiding them has started to pay off, my dreams for the world are to stop complaining stop being jealous and stop the drama we have our own lives to live live it not someone else’s!

    • Good Morning. I am passionate about my kids, husband and Family

    • Good mornin all! I’m passionate about my family and my baby and my role as a stay at home mother!

    • I am about my family,especially my daughter, its her 2nd year of collage and it seems the world resolves around her and helping her. I try to help and handle everything I can to make her life easier.

    • Stacy Giacosa-Bauer says:

      Good Morning Everyone! I am passionate about my family and my son doing well in college so that he can support himself and a family of his own one day!

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Good morning all. I guess mine is to get the word out to Never give up on anything you want in life so you don’t feel you are giving up on yourself. I hope other get what I mean by this. 🙂

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Good Morning, my passion is my family, I enjoy every moment I get to spend with them. 🙂

    • Jessica Parent says:

      Good morning …I am most passionate about my family! My dreams are that the world embraces a kindness to each other and love for all that has been lacking . I am hoping to be able to properly teach my children the value of honesty, love,generosity.

    • wendy c g says:

      Good morning, I’m passionate about family, my kids, my hubby. Enjoying the beauty that surrounds me.

    • Katrina A. says:

      Hello. I trying to find my passion again. After years, well, maybe a lifetime of dealing with depression and anxiety I lost my path a long time ago. Now with a family of my own and learning how to handle myself new doors open everyday.
      I want to be able to enjoy the small things. I want to feel the fire burn inside myself. I want to control my own life, happiness, well being and finances. I hope one day I can create (knit, crochet, paint, write) to inspire and provide.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      Hi! I am passionate about my family. My children and grandchildren are the most important things in my life. I would be no one without them. When I need them, they are here to help me without regard for their needs. I am blessed!

    • amanda rouse says:

      Good morning all! Of course I am passionate about my family, and right now, as a SAHM I am thriving on working from home in direct sales (tupperware) as an outlet for me, but also as a way to bring in money for the family, whether it be for bills or for play money (or even FREE TRIPS). Not only am I learning about running my own business, and being my own boss, I am teaching my 3 yr old the importance of this job, and showing him the fun in the business, excitement and things that need to get done (make phone calls, deliver catalogs/products for customers, meetings etc). I want to be able to help provide for our family, and my job is portable in case we decide to move to warmer climates, which is one our dreams. We would like to have the freedom (and funds) to travel more so that we can experience the world with our son

    Weight does effect how we feel and what accomplishments we make to our lives and the lives of others, especially our immediate family.

    Permanent weight loss is not rocket science. But it is science, nonetheless. It’s not about less calories. It’s about controlling your hunger. The difficulty with weight loss programs is they concentrate on you eating less. They want you to control the end result – less calories – rather than concentrating on eliminating the triggers that cause you to eat too many calories – your hunger.

    For graceful weight loss there are THREE SILLY but EFFECTIVE RULES. These three are a great way to get started to lose weight.

    Please go there and share what you think on that post!

    • kaen hinkle says:

      wow that was really interesting I am guilty of skipping meals the rest I don’t do I am not a big eater but a snaker

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      Interesting article!

    • wendi watson says:

      I am glad that i read that there were some facts in there i was unaware of especially the ones about the appetizers who would have ever have thought that was the truth wow!

    • Makes sense. I have a problem with not eatting sometimes I just get busy and forget to get or there is nothing in the house I want I just dont eat. I have been trying to order water at restaurants, instead of soda or sweet tea

    • this is all so true! When I was pregnant, the doctor told me my baby was too big and I should stop having carbs. I ended up skipping meals (I couldn’t make a sandwich) and binging at the end of the day on all sorts of bad things… same concept. (p.s. baby was born 3.5 weeks early at 7lb 10oz. I was underweight – he had taken everything for me)

      • I wad told the same thing..but they didnt really explain what that ment..so I just kept eatting my craving for oatmeal cream pies and Dr pepper. I gained 60 lbs in 4 months and developed pre eclampsia and they induced me just 4 days before my due date. My son was 8lb 2oz

        • wow!! I feel they need to provide more proper guidance. I gained 20 lb from my pre-pregnancy weight which is below what’s recommended (25-35 for a healthy bmi which I was). I was losing weight around the thighs and my bones were sticking out. I was eating properly and then the doctor says to stop carbs cuz the baby was too big. I wanted to tell him that the baby is taking what he needs whether I give it to him or not and I’ll just be hungry.

          I feel like the doctors need to give more personal guidance. That way we’d take it more seriously. Obviously, each case is unique.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Tricky about the restaurants with the free appetizers. Normally you would not think about that either. Thanks for sharing.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      Great information. I had no idea alcohol would make you eat more! I did know that about skipping meals, that’s a no-no.

    • Commented. I never order appetizer or deserts. And only eat out twice a month.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      Commented, great tips!! 🙂

    • Jessica Parent says:

      commented- I like to very occasionally share an appetizer with my fam (but only a bite or 2 after sharing with 5-6 other people)

    • wendy c g says:

      Interesting facts

    • Katrina A. says:

      I eat when I can but don’t consider it skipping meals. And for me appetizers really fill me up. I can’t even eat my meal later.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      Those three simple rules are fantastic and true! I have never really thought about why I want to eat, but those three rules really hit home! Gives me something to think about.

    • amanda rouse says:

      some things to thing about in my day

  4. CoffeeTime says:

    amcoffee
    It happens every day, a woman asks what she could do to boost her business, to make that extra sale, to expand her enterprise.

    With Passion and Guidance you can do anything you’ve set yourself to do.

    Here are some Questions everyone of us needs to answer when we wish to turn our Passion into a Successful Career we’d like to impact with others in our lives.

    These are not the only questions and answers you gotta be answering. But focusing on the CORE of your endeavor would definitely put you on the map of building your own success in your unique way.

    Q1. What is your Unique Difference that you are going to make in other people’s lives?
    This one is the KEY to your success in whatever you are doing. Once you pin point the Uniqueness of your making a difference in other people’s lives – you become a power machine with a differentiation like nobody else around you.

    Business is all about Value Proposition, meaning that You can offer something very Unique, very Different that nobody else can!

    Do you have this Big Question Answered?

    By the way, it does not matter whether you are in the same business like a million others are. As we are all unique, we each bring the Unique Differentiation to everything we do. You need to pin point What It Is.

    If you have that Etsy store or even sell out of home, sit down for a moment and think: WHAT IS THAT DIFFERENCE I WOULD LIKE TO MAKE IN PEOPLE’S LIVES?

    The Power of your answer is your path to success.

    • kaen hinkle says:

      I just started selling Hidden Treasure Candles and I would love to expand my business and get ppl to buy from me but it is hard but I am trying I want to give my clinets the best I can offer them

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      The difference I want to make in people’s lives is to keep them in school and watch them graduate! I don’t have a business or anything like that so I applied it to my everyday job!

    • wendi watson says:

      I was in auto sales for many years and yes a woman! I want to say one thing the product does not sell itself they buy YOU as well! you have to be you dont try to over think it or try to oversell it be a person not a sale man you will a big difference i was salesperson of the month 30 time in 3 years its repore then you will watch your items sell or increase in no time dont pressure just be you it works better than anything!

    • I would want to make ppl feel good about themselves

    • I’ve been making jewelry for years now. My thoughts when I started doing it was that Jewelry is such an individual thing – everyone should be able to customize it exactly how they like and have the option to own a piece no one else does. Each person is unique and therefore needs to express that and jewelry is a great way to do it. Over the years, I’ve seen that what sells is not what’s unique, and unfortunately, I’ve had to do more of what works and less of what I originally set out to do. I found that the basic bridesmaid styles and the pacifier clips that I can repeat 1000 times sold a lot and I very rarely sold the unique pieces. I understand why that is – it’s a fit, and to find the person that fits that style is hard, but it does upset me that I’ve had to stray from that. (I changed the website that my name links to to my etsy shop so you can see what I mean)

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I love this because it is true. You have to be unique to grow and you have to believe in that uniqueness before you can make others believe in you.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I don’t have any businesses although I do wedding videography occasionally. The difference between me and others is that I charge much less and put a lot of work into post production. But that is not my passion. I would like to someday do photography for a living but I’m not sure I have anything to offer that is different from other people…

    • I don’t have a business, only running my home. That’s a big job, Keeping everyone organized , so it takes an extra burden off of them. Things like there, running there errands, there laundry. Plus I do some community activites. Like momma always said ‘One good deed aday never hurt anyone.

      • kaen hinkle says:

        I understand that Barbra

      • There’s no such thing as supermom. Doing one thing will always compromise the next. I think it’s the supermom generation that gets so many of us down and we each have to choose what our focus is. Kudos to you for choosing your home and community.

    • Stacy Giacosa-Bauer says:

      I don’t have a business, so for me I take care of the house, pay the bills, mow the yard, take care of the pool, do the laundry, plan healthy meals, go the grocery, run errands and visit with my older neighbors whom I do errands for because they are in their 80’s and are like my 2nd Mom & Dad, especially since mine are in Heaven now. I feel good about what I do because my husband works hard all day and I want to make sure he has nothing to do when he gets home from work!

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      I love selling Kitcheneez, I do have a passion for it as it meets so many dietary needs and love sharing it with others, it has many gluten free, low sodium, and low carbs. They are also easy healthy meals to prepare for anyone from working people to people like me who cannot stand very long to prepare. You really do have to believe in what you are doing before others will!!! 🙂

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I do not have a business but the difference Id like to make in peoples lives is to always be completely honest even when it does not benefit me or even hurts me in some way.I really feel it is the best policy and so many people are fake in the world. I teach my kids to treat others the way they “want” to be treated not the way they are treated which is typically a huge difference

    • wendy c g says:

      I don’t have a business, but I love seeing All those who start from nothing and go into successful businesses. I love shopping at small and family owned shops.

    • Katrina A. says:

      I just started another new venture and have a few more I want to start on this year. I like the idea of focusing on what makes my business or myself unique. I’ll have to attack it that way. Because like you said the business I just started has 1,000’s of others selling too. Hmmm…..good to think about.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I don’t have a business of my own right now, but I used to. My aim was to provide something that the customer would find some joy in. I loved seeing them break into a smile or chuckle when they found something they liked.

    Q2. Have you Mastered Your Craft?
    Take this one with an open mind and heart.

    Those who pursue new things about their area where they wish to succeed; those who learn more daily on what can be done and how; those who sharpen their skills and new techniques – yes, they go beyond the ordinary success rate.

    What’s important from this one to take away is that when we learn new things, we automatically, subconsciously, applying this new knowledge against what we know. The brain has a magnificent creative power to extract That what is needed for our next successful step.

    A lot of people are enjoying the convenience of their Home Party business, for example. There are thousands doing the same thing. When you learn about how others doing it, when you expose yourself to more and more ways of doing the “same” thing – there’s that Critical Mass that is being formed in your brain. That very critical mass would catapult you onto the next level of success.
    learning your craft

    Just never stop learning!

    Share what is that you need to learn about, what skills you’d like to acquire to take your business to the next level.

    • kaen hinkle says:

      yes I believe that we can always learn new thing every day in life just like amcoffee I have learned so much from this its great and I like when I can share some things I learned to others as well

    • wendi watson says:

      My dad always told to remember this Head up–Mouth shut—learn everything you can— and take it and run because not can take away knowledge from you! whether its one thing new today and 2 things tomorrow its still knowledge!

    • Good idea. I love photography and love to learn new things, even though it takes me a while to absorb the info due to a learning disability.

    • I am hoping to learn more techniques in my jewelry field. I simply need to be selling more to be able to invest in new equipment and supplies. How do I overcome this hurdle??

      • CoffeeTime says:

        Menu,
        To sell more takes at times thinking out of the box.
        What could help is online communities, Google+ communities that have Passionate people indeed. Not just those that sell, but those who buy.
        Many groups are nothing, but pitching to each other. That won’t work. But if you could find the groups that have discussions going on, plus add an active feature to your personal FB page, all that would add up.
        Again, you gotta think out-of-the-box!
        For example, you could create a weekly feature on your FB page that would have some Educational, Entertaining, Attractive value to your friends!
        Get them involved and contribute to your ideas: What should I make for the Graduation day or Back to School day or Thanksgiving, etc?
        When you actively involve your audience, you subconsciously create a value in their eyes what you are doing.

      • Do you have a facebook page for you jewelry?

        • I have combined for my blog and jewelry – it’s called “Menucha Designs – Moms and Crafters” . I have been trying to actively involve my fans. I’ve been working on growing it. I have in the past had a purchase feature on my fb page (I believe it was an etsy plug-in) I’ll have to double check that it’s still active. I incorporated my blog to add a dimension – lie you said provide information and entertainment as well. I will try to join some of those groups you mentioned. I will keep trying…

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Well said Laura. The one thing everyone has to remember is to always stay positive. Positive energy brings positive results. 🙂

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      I don’t know that there’s anything specific I need to learn new but I am finding I learn something new everyday that I can usually apply to my life!

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      Since I do videography and editing, it’s software that I need to learn more about. Mainly video editing software. I’ve pretty much mastered Adobe Premiere(video editing) and Adobe Encore (creating DVDs) and just got Audition (audio editing) down and now I’m working on Adobe After Effects (creating complicated effects). This one is very difficult but I’m bound and determined to master it!

      • good luck!! I once opened one of those programs and got so confused! I do adobe graphic and web design softwares – those are complicated enought!

    • After 27 years of being married, I’ve learned a lot. But over the years we have to advance with the times. So I am open to new ideas. With in the past 2 years Ive learned FB, Twitter, Pinterest. I think That’s great for someone that’s 47, lol.

    • Stacy Giacosa-Bauer says:

      I have definitely mastered taking care of the home and ensuring that everyone is eating healthy. I would like to learn more about gardening and I am taking a free class at Home Depot because I am in the Garden Club! I would also like to take a Interior Decorating class and will inquire at the community college sometime next week.

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      I definitely believe in never stop learning not just with my home business, i do for fun and free product not to earn money, but in everything you do. I was a preschool teacher for 12 years also with my own kids it was constantly a learning process as every child was unique in their own way 🙂

    • Jessica Parent says:

      Id like to develop thicker skin so perfect strangers opionions (especially negative ones) can roll off my shoulders and so I can feel like I can “say No” without people being mad at me

    • wendy c g says:

      I love learning new things. You can never be to smart or knowledgeable.

    • Katrina A. says:

      I need to work on my home party skills. I feel more comfortable on a bigger, less personal stage so I think I will look into Farmers Markets, flea markets, ect. I think I’d excel more. I also need to master my actual craft in knitting and sewing.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I used to work in the Home Party Planning business and was fairly successful at first. But then there seemed to be more consultants in my area than the area could support. I eventually left the business. I tried to be resourceful and come up with new sales opportunities, but they fell flat.

    Q3. Put Your Passion Into a Driving Seat!
    You’ve heard it a thousands times that those who have passion for what they do have a long-lasting successful careers, lives, achievements and most importantly these people Affect other people’s lives in a positive, constructive way.

    Being Passionate about something is not to be confused with an “easy path.”

    Rather it is a path you walk despite all adversities and challenges you meet and hear from others, even from those who are closest to you.

    Passion is your being tuned in to your gut feel, into who you are inside. Being dedicated to your Dream makes you a warrior, a peaceful warrior. As you are the only one who can make it happen.

    Persevere with your passion inside of you.

    What are the challenges you meet when it comes to something dear to your heart, your dream you want to live?

    • kaen hinkle says:

      I would love to get my candle business going and make it a access because I really do believe in this company and they have a great product that I believe in but it is hard at first to make that big step and reach out to family and friends to get them to help you out to start your business I am getting ready to do my first home party at my home this week to get it going

    • wendi watson says:

      One thing i would say IS NEVER BE EMABARRASSED to tell people what you do! If you tell 10 people that you sell cars you will sell one to one of those people! You never know what people are looking for and if you happen to say you sell encyclopedias they may just be looking for that one person to sell them that product because they have no idea where to start and also a lot of people are afraid to ask so tell everyone what you do! It pays off in the end

    • Good advice I feel like I dont have time peruse things that interest my right now. I think when my youngest two start kindergarten I will.

    • I do have the challenge telling people I’m a stay at home mom. I get questions like “what do you do all day” and “aren’t you bored” all the time… it hurts but I’m trying to take it to heart less and less. I live in a place where everyone I know works. The average family in my community has 6-7 children and they all send them to private schools, necessitating both parents to work. I am unique in that I’m willing to live off very little for the “luxury” of being a stay at home mom and my husband fully supports me. I need to be more confident with this choice.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      My biggests (and it’s a big one) is just trying to figure out what my passion is! I’ve been after answering this question for over 20 years. I do enjoy video editing and photography. But I’m not sure either of them is really a passion. What if you just don’t have a passion?

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      My dream would be to stay at home and have another baby but I don’t see either happening anytime soon. The sad fact is we both have to work to be able to support our household and if we have another baby (been trying for 5 years), there would be no way I’d be able to stay home if we want to keep our home. I am looking for a teaching job though so that I would have summers off…something I don’t have right now even though I work for a school district.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      My number one dream out of all is for my children to succeed in life. Before a couple of months ago I was so negative and it was wearing off on to my kids. Which my boys are 23 and 17. Now because of one person I have changed so much and am thinking positive. I have to catch myself sometimes but I always end up seeing the good in things I think are negative. My young men have set goals and everything now and I am making them see the good not just the negative. Thanks Laura for all you have done for me and my family and this is truly from the bottom of my heart. 🙂

      • that’s beautiful! I hope I can say the same when I’m at your stage. I am so determined to teach my little boy how to respect the women in his life. I guess the best way, as you say is by example.

    • I am going to do something, I have been waiting for my kids to finish collage and move out. I’m waiting on my time to be free with out kids yelling “HELP ME”.

    • Stacy Giacosa-Bauer says:

      My Dream I Want To Live is to move out of Florida when my husband retires and move to Asheville, North Carolina where there is not so much traffic congestion, hurricane warnings, ridiculous home owner insurance rates and live the simpler, quieter life with the change of seasons and a beautiful view!

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      My biggest challenge right now is dealing with all the changes with my daughters, they are 19 and 22 both have moved out to own apartments, and having new grandson, living alone and not being able to influence or make choices for them anymore. My 19 yr. old had such promise was high honors, started college and has already dropped out and thinks wants to live rest of life as manager at McDonalds. Is hard hope one day she will change her mind she has such wonderful potential. My other daughter now that she has the baby is working full time and is now also going back to school at night as she is finding out how hard it is to make it even with the dad also working.

    • Jessica Parent says:

      The biggest challenges I meet are finances (we barely have enough extra money to get food sometimes) and my family still being quite dependent on me in caring for them

    • wendy c g says:

      My challenge is being brave enough to just do it.

    • Katrina A. says:

      My challenge is myself. I am my own worst enemy. Once I can learn to have complete faith in myself I feel I will soar.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I am afraid that I caved into the demands of the business and left. I have since resumed my career as a nurse and I am very happy. It is a rewarding career and I am not afraid to admit that I get more out of it than the patients.

    Q4. Learn and Improve Your Financial Education if you Wish To Move Your Business Forward

    While your passion will be your guiding light and your perseverance to your success, you gotta equip yourself with “smarts” and tools that would allow you to make sound decision and grow your business, no matter how big or small your business is.

    When you are a small business, you have to wear many hats to bring more success to what you do.

    That means you need to know and be aware about (not necessarily do it yourself, as you may outsource some functions) Marketing, networking, advertising, costs and profits, copy writing and so much more.
    business education for women

    Being aware of these areas would sharpen your focus of what you can do yourself and what can be outsourced and helped with.

    Obviously, there are a lot of resources online that we all can partake in!

    What are your things you do Regularly that advance your knowledge?

      I talk to people i am not very shy when it comes to conversation so i let everyone know what it is that i do ! Its about being the best and the one who communicates the most that will prosper and take off!

      • kaen hinkle says:

        I am some what shy but when it comes to talking about my grandson with autism I cant not shut up I go on and on that how I want to be with my candles I can talk about them all day to

    • I like to read blogs and watch video to learn different settings and techniques

    • I talk to my husband!! lol! he has a BA in business administration so he does let me know what he knows as it comes along.

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      Not in a business sense but in a career sense, I have to take continuing education courses so I am always learning new things in my job field.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      I have to say Youtube videos is one of the ways I learn. There are so many how-to videos out there that are very helpful when it comes to video editing. Like I said, I don’t have my own business but I’m always trying to learn more in my field to keep up with advancing technology.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      To start a business you have to do all the research first. You have said this perfect. Great information.

    • I spend my mornings with you, lol. And I like to read and I read everything. Knowledge is the key.

    • Stacy Giacosa-Bauer says:

      I regularly read Reviews on blogs on Facebook that are important to me such as animal abuse, DIY projects I want to do in the home, and saving money on things we use regularly in the home!

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      I am in a group and we constantly share ideas to carry on to each other, we all work as a team rather than against each other. Which really improves learning from one another 🙂

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I Read anything and everything I can get my eyes on …reviews,blogs,how to’s and Google …google …google. I do try to find several things to confirm it is truth (and /or right) if I learn something new or unbelievable

    • wendy c g says:

      Research, always learning new stuff with my kids, we go to a lot of museums, and educational places. I love learning new things with my family.

    • Katrina A. says:

      This is the perfect post today seeing as I JUST signed up for this new venture of mine last night!! I am relearning all the skills I learned years ago when I was more in the sellers loop. I need to educate myself more on the money side of running a business. Like taxes, keeping track, paperwork, ect.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I am constantly on the lookout for online educational opportunities. That way I can learn at my own pace. I also like to brainstorm with my peers.

    Q5. Do You Trust Yourself Enough to Take that “Leap of Faith”?

    Are you passionate about something, yet hesitating to start doing it?

    What are you waiting for?

    As Ghandi said one time, “Truth Reveals Itself in Action.”

    You may have all those brilliant ideas and how to implement them. But if you are not acting then out – what’s the worth of them?

    You need to decide what you want to do in life and how Your Difference could affect other people around you. For that, action is required.

    Share if you are living your life out and if you have any dreams that you still would like to pursue and ACT OUT!
    LEAP OF FAITH

    • wendi watson says:

      i think everyone has dreams even if they are close to fulfilling one…that is why they say to dream big is to win big…so dont be afraid dream they say they can come true! 🙂

    • I k ow my social anxiety really holds me back and I am very self critical.

    • When we’re living (financially) from day to day it’s very frightening to invest the little you have. I feel I can do a lot more if I had the money to advertise more or hire a marketing team.

      • kaen hinkle says:

        I like to say I am living my dream I am trying but there are certain obsticles that are preventing me at this time but soon I will be able to do them but its is worth the wait so I can do them

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      I don’t know that I am living my dream but I am happy at where I am. I have an awesome, loving hubby, a beautiful, loud, unique daughter and a son who is coming into his own (he will be 21 tomorrow…where did the time go???). If you would have asked me 10 years ago, I would have told you it would never happen! I had given up on ever finding the “right” one and having more babies.

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      What I really want to do is go completely out of my field of Media Services and videography/editing and go into science. I’ve always felt pulled to research, science, microbiology. I had started out in college going for a Microbiology degree but silly and bad decision made me change my major. Now I’m so far from where I started that I don’t know how to get back! Now I have a 3 year old and that complicates things even more.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      I believe my dream was always to do things I never thought I could do, do them and complete them while growing from the experiences.

    • Yes, I am ready to take the big jump into the business world. I think I put my life on hold for my kids, and that was my choice. The kids are almost grown so it will be back to me soon.

      • Stacy Giacosa-Bauer says:

        Yes, I am definitely ready to do something with my life now that my son is away at college! My husband is going to network our home computer to the home so he can be here more and I am going to start doing the payroll, accounts receivable, account payable and invoicing all of his engineering jobs for him. He is going to pay me too or I told him I will just go get a part time job because I want to earn my own money! I am so excited to make some of my own money.

      • Rebecca Swenor says:

        That is very sweet Barbara and it just shows how much you love your kids. Also how good of a mama you really are in my eyes anyway. Not saying other mothers are not good mothers by the way some don’t have this choice you were one of the lucky ones. 🙂

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      right now working on my health to get to the point where I can pursue my dreams 🙂

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I’d like to travel someday…doesn’t have to be the world could be just the country

    • wendy c g says:

      I dream of traveling when my husband retires. I’ve always wanted to explore new places.

    • Katrina A. says:

      I really just want to explore more of what I can create. Knitting, sewing, building, painting….so much I want to do and shouldbe doing more off.

    • Carol Yemola says:

      I am doing exactly what I love to do and have no desire to go anywhere else. At my age, I simply want to enjoy where I am now and excel at what I am doing.

    • amanda rouse says:

      I took the steps to doing my own direct sales business, even tho I didn’t have that much selling experience, and its an investment to get started, I am only a year into tupperware, but now I manage a team of sellers, and have had 2 of my biggest months yet this year. I am working on growing my business, becuase i want to be able to help provide for my family

    • wendi watson says:

      dont give up dont listen to negativity because those are the people that were afraid to take that step and try…take it and run and dont turn back!

    • Don’t let your physical or mental disability hold you back

    • What I posted there: I’ve always worn glasses (besides for the few years I wore contacts. Now my eyes are too dry). I’ve turned them into a fashion statement. What you feel may be a handicap in the eyes of others you can turn into an advantage. Now I have friends who purchase plain glasses with no number for fashion….

    • Amanda Alvarado says:

      I posted this over there: Don’t ever think “It will never happen!” because with faith in God and hard work, anything is possible!

    • Jennifer Hiles says:

      What a great message.

    • Rebecca Swenor says:

      Never give up on what you love or our passionate about because it would be like giving up on yourself. No matter what there is always something good out of everything negative. 🙂

    • Don’t give up. It will be hard work, nothing ever comes easy. Ask for help when needed.

    • Stacy Giacosa-Bauer says:

      Believe in yourself and what your passion is in life! Mine is to be Healthier than I have ever been and staying motivated to achieve this goal so that I can enjoy everything Life has to offer!

    • Virginia Rogers says:

      commented, that was great and what a great outlook, be passionate and hooked on life!! 🙂

    • Jessica Parent says:

      I have worn glasses since 3rd grade and have never liked them. I ‘ve always been more confident in contact lenses but for the past several years have worn strictly glasses (which are more physically comfortable to me)

    • wendy c g says:
