We needed to escape the rat race.
When our first son arrived in 2014 we were living in a small 2 bed flat on a North London estate. The home we had loved living in throughout our corporate working life now offered us no real space for our son to play and learn freely.
We moved out to the countryside 4 weeks before Janine was due to return to work from maternity leave and for 2 years endured a 3 ½ hr round commute back in to the city for work.
Our bosses were supportive enough for the most part but our days were a constant juggling act of making the train on time, getting home to see our son for 10 minutes before he went to bed and collapsing in front of the TV before going to bed and doing the same all over again.
Something had to change. We were missing out on our son growing up and felt like we were wasting each day.We were earning decent enough money but were spending most of it on our commute and childcare leaving us little left each month to enjoy activities together as a family.
We were not motivated by our jobs, the only thing standing between us and quitting was our monthly pay cheque.
Our paths in life were much the same as a lot of people. Go to school, go to college, get a job. We were doing that and it wasn’t enough. It was boring, unfulfilling and we didn’t feel that we were adding any value to anyone.
We got to a point where we knew we needed to make a change in order to live the free and fulfilled life we wanted so much.
At the beginning of 2016 we were introduced to a network marketing opportunity. We had been customers for a while and were getting great results with the products. It felt like the ideal time for us to get involved and build a business for ourselves.
We started off well and gained a solid customer base but ALL our spare time was going towards setting up meetings, building our prospect list
and sharing information with people. It was so manual and time consuming and generating very little result for the effort we were putting in. BUT, we knew we could make it work, we were still motivated, but needed to change our approach.
We began reading, researching, watching webinars and listening to podcasts whenever we were travelling or getting housework done and soon came across the concept of Attraction Marketing. For the first time in a long time this was something that made sense to us… we create value in our market and people come to us, not the other way around.
In February this year our second son was born and by March Jamie had handed in his notice at work and was home full time. You can imagine what working from home can be like with a 3 year old and 7 month old around 🙂
But, it works and we now have the best of both worlds; time to work on our own continuously growing business portfolio and quality time with our children where we can actually be around to watch them learn and grow.
With the concept of Attraction Marketing at the core of our businesses we now find ourselves running our businesses from our home, around our children.
We have our time back, we are free to work when we choose and best of all, we are making money even when we aren’t working.
