What a strange, wild, fun and crazy trip this life has been!
In 1978 I became an RN. I did everything from floor nursing to specialty services, employee health and even teaching nursing. In 1997 found myself working at the same company for over 10 years and realized that my income from “the day job” was only going to go up by 1%-4% a year – forever! The only way I could move up and retire comfortably was to take a management job or go back to school. I started on my Masters degree, and I also started a small business selling phone cards to supplement my income and retirement fund.
Well, school was hard and was going to take me at least 5 years part time, and the phone cards were a disaster, so I was looking for other options. Actually, I can’t even remember all the other opportunities I checked out. I moved on to try selling household goods, skin care and vitamin supplements.
I felt like a duck in water. I would was paddling like crazy, going to meetings, trying products, buying starter kits and doing everything I was told, but I wasn’t getting anywhere. In fact, I was losing money.
Then I decided to try Passion Parties. I had been to “those” parties back in my college years, and really just wanted to have a party because they were so fun. But, there were no consultants near me, so I signed up. What was one more trial company? Plus, I could get the discount on my own romance toys and hold my own party.
Long story short, in February 2004 I left my full time job after 27 years as a nurse to do Passion Parties full time. I don't regret it for one minute. Once you start to realize some of your dreams can come true, well the rest all seem possible! I always wanted to write a book. So I decided to write about what I knew, sex and romance.
Well, it turns out that I learned a bit about being successful on my journey, so I wrote another book about that. And I am currently working on 3 other books too.
So I hope you enjoy reading my books as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
Thanks for taking a chance on me. Now let me leave you with one of my favorite sayings:
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly. Laugh often.
