766. From Sales to ER Nurse to Her Own Business
“It was just making that decision. I decided I wanted to work from home. So, I said, okay, I’m going to learn all of the skills necessary in order to make that happen. And I already knew I was a good salesperson, so now I just needed to learn how to sell online. And so, I would watch YouTube shows. I took classes just to figure it out.”

How Did You Start Using Your Talents?
“I’m the type of person that whenever I decide to do something I just find a way to make it happen. I was able to go through college and I actually went to two different colleges at the same time, just to hurry up and get all of my units done. I worked jobs at the same time, so I would not have to take out any loans. I was just very dedicated.”
The Most Impactful Turning Point?
“At 23, I was working shifts in the ER. I had a one-year-old at home and I was not fond of shift work anymore. It was exciting at first, but then I just could not see myself doing it for the rest of my life. Twelve-hour shifts turned into 16 hours because I’m such an overachiever. Finally, I realized, this is not going to be good if I ever want to have a family. So, I got into network marketing and a home-based business where I could sell products or services all over the world. I sold health and wellness supplements and soon replaced my nursing income. I became a millionaire in that company by the time I was 26.”
The Most Powerful Lessons Learned?
“I realized that you can make as much money as you want to make, that you can work from anywhere in the world, and that you can do that with products and services that actually help people feel amazing and live better lives.”
