10 Years Ago, I was You!

After having my 4th child, the time came for me to go back to work. I'm guessing you know that  having a few kids to juggle, along with work and household, can be overwhelming to say the least.

  • be available for my kids after school,

  • be around to manage the household &

  • use my strengths & what I love doing, 

  • to earn a great income!
