What does a day in the life of a busy mom who works Fulltime as a Registered Nurse, owns her own successful Home Business and enjoys playing hockey every week look like? Many have asked and now I would like to share with the world.
Let me start out by saying in my case I have to give a very large amount of credit to my wonderful husband of almost 14 years Jeremy Gray is my true love as well as my partner in crime. He has a very successful Real Estate business for which many hours a week consume him. But he does have the flexibility to play a huge role in parenting and running the daily household. The key to keeping the marriage stronge is by far COMMUNICATION, SUPPORT, Bi-Monthly at minimum date nights, and daily “I love you’s”.
I learned from the best! My MOM (who ironically is a Business Partner now). I watched her excel in her career year after year and saw her Recognition and Support she received and just naturally expected that in my life.
So fast forward 20 + years laster, many years of schooling for a career in Nursing and moving up the nursing ranks. I thought I had make it, my life was fulfilled. I had reached a payscale only few had or really wanted to (Being youn and naive I realized that many RN’s never aspired to be in a management role). Now I am older and wiser. I completely respect my nursing profession and LOVE it. My 10 years in the Operating Room were some of my favorite years and my last 4 years as a RN Clinical Applications Analyst has been so incredibly fun to learn everyday (the natural student in me). So, why would I start my own business. Well Ironically my business started for me when I decided to make a gigantic change in my life. I decided enough was enough and I wanted to lose weight and feel great and stop going through the motions.
When I took on helping people achieve their health and fitness goals after reaching my own. I had no idea what kind of business this could turn into. The more people I helped the more people I wanted to help. Then as everybody amazingly, money started to appear. WHAT??? I GET PAID FOR THIS??? How cool is this! Ohh now what are my dreams and goals, now that I see this as possible. I adjusted my goals accordingly and realized this IS A Business and a Business I LOVE!
So because I love this Business so much and it has become my passion and has gotten me closer to my goals I would have never dreamed about. I have made the time in my busy schedule to follow my passion, so HERE GOES:

So not this is not 8 hours of sleep but I have the ability to get 8 hours of sleep on Fri, Sat, Sun when I dont work my fulltime job. Sometimes I have to force myself for an 11pm bedtime because I am having so much fun and get caught up in the moments. I take Tuesday night off from my workout as a rest day to sit on the couch with my hubby and watch a favorite show.
So for just over 2 hours of work on my Business a day I have made a significant difference in others lives (or so they sometimes tell me :)) and a substantial amount of supplemental income.
On Fridays, I have a little more time to work on my business as I am off from my fulltime job (I work 4 10 hour shifts) but traditionally I go with my husband to drop the kids off at school and go out for breakfast for a breakfast date. On Saturdays and Sundays I typically work about 2 hours on my business or less.
So a total of about 12 hours on my business and currently (May 2012) I am making approximately $5,000 a month with it. I have been in this business for just under 3 years and have certainly had my growing pains just like any other new job, great thing about starting this business, is ZERO overhead like a traditional business. Oh yeah and I have been able to do this WITH A FULLTIME JOB! Who could get a $5,000/month raise in 3 years in their traditional job.
Great thing is looking at what that will be at year 5 and what is even more fun is that my team of coaches are reaching their financial milestones so much quicker nowadays because there are so many ways to reach out to people and help them live fulfilling lives. The reason they are reaching it so much quicker is that we have a very simple training system we plug them into that was not in place when I started. All these coaches are products of the products and have changed their lives tremendously.
