Domestic Goddess...

I wrote a similar post several months ago and thought I needed to bring up the topic again.

Domestic Goddess…I prefer our SAHM and WAHM (Stay At Home Mom and Work At Home Mom) title to be Domestic Goddess (DG) That seems to make people smile. Yes, most people do not give praise where praise is needed when it comes to being a Domestic Goddess. Being a DG is absolutely the hardest position in the world. There is no paycheck to go along with the experience. At one time I was confused by what I was looking for while in the midst of bringing kids into this world. Never getting recognition for all my long hours and dealing with spit-up, homework headaches, being asked what is for dinner and once prepared no one wants to eat it – I could go on and on. Many of you may have also found yourself in my position. I thought I was looking for income to make me happy (even though my DH (dear husband) is a successful dentist) I did not find out until I had worked from home and made a name for myself and earned great money it was not the money I was looking for - it was the recognition of belonging to something again and corresponding with adults is what I missed.

Before I got involved in the network marketing industry I worked as a school teacher and then I worked as an accountant (major and minored in college). I was rewarded as a teacher by the success of my kids and rewarded as an accountant when I was able to balance a worksheet. Being a DG you never seem to get the same praise until you are in public and your kids use the phrases “please” and “thank you” when you least expect it and you feel you have done a mighty good job raising them! That is just one example - having your kids tell you they love you without being prompted is absolutely one of the best things a DG loves to hear.

When I discovered network marketing I found what I was longing. The rewards I got from helping others with their health and financially gave me what I needed. The money was secondary but the money also turned out to be a blessing because even though I never needed to really ask for permission when it came to spending money I always thought it was my obligation to talk to DH (Dear Husband) since he was the one working and earning the income. Now I am earning as well and I feel I have an even say in monetary issues that have to be dealt with in our home.

Working from home and being a DG now gives me more respect from my kids than before. I am also more respected by my friends who use to think I just sat at home and ate bon bons all day - you know where they can stick those bon bons :) My kids see me juggling my home business and their school and social functions. My kids are happy to have their “mommy” at home and I feel good about being able to see them and being able to stop by their school whenever I want. Being a DG and a WAHM gives me the intrinsic feeling of success that I was searching for – that is my big “WHY”.

What are you passionate about? I am sure you have heard that many times before. Have you ever worked in an mlm or network marketing company? It is something you can do on your own time. For less than $200 you can start a home business just like I did!

You can reach me anytime if you have questions. I have been featured in three books and am always happy to share my story and what I do to bring in extra income and meet so many wonderful people from around the world.

GOOD LUCK to you and I hope I helped a little or a lot!

I am a 24 year old who has a degree, decided to put a damper on pursuing television news, and became a personal trainer. I now run a personal training business that I created and make podcasts and blogs. I HAVE NEVER, EVER BEEN HAPPIER IN MY LIFE. I have the best support system a woman could ask for (my fiance) who gave me strength and supplied me with the motivation and tools to create my business. I definitely believe if you value more than just money, that doing what makes you happy is the best way to live because then the money will come. Your blog is awesome!
