This Stay at Home Mom Makes Over $700 Per Week Helping Teams & Organizations In Her Community...
Hi, I'm Ashley. This is my story...
Like most stay at home parents around the world, my mornings are pretty busy with the mad dash to get the kids out of bed, washed, dressed and fed in time to leave for school.
I love this time though because I know that once the stress of getting them to school is over, the clock starts ticking until it is time to pick them up from school. So now I get to go home and start 'work.' That might sound a little strange because not a lot of people love their work, and I used to be the same, but my life has changed so drastically in the last 12 months that I LOVE getting back home to start work.
Nowadays 'work' for me involves talking to team moms, coaches, youth group leaders, schools, band directors about how I can help them raise funds for their organization. These organizations ALL need money, and all I have to do to make a living is talk to them and introduce what we do at Sudz Fundraising.
The best part is that ANYONE who knows local organizations that need to raise money can do the same thing I do. RIGHT NOW!
I sometimes find it hard to believe how great my life is now because it wasn't always this good...
I have to confess... I love to Travel and Shop!!!
My Hubby makes decent money, but when we made the decision to have me stay home with the children I didn't really think...that ALL of the travel and extra shopping was going to be OVER! The only travelling and shopping I was doing was TRAVEL to the East side of town to SHOP the local Wal Mart for another week's worth of groceries and essentials.
You hear the cliche all the time "But I wouldn't change it for the world!" EXCEPT I wanted to change the amount of income we brought into the household so we could stop living paycheck to paycheck and enjoy life like most everyone around us.
But How? I am a stay at home mom.... and I wouldn't change that for anything! I love it!
So I was determined to find a way I could make some money while keeping the kids time with me our time. I think the law of attraction was working in my favor because I ran into a lady at a tryout and started discussing mom stuff.
Everything changed when another mom I'd just met showed me a check she had just received for her second sale. It was for $745.00.
I’d never met this other mother before, she was a work colleague of one of my other friends, and she made the big mistake of asking me how I was doing...
Now, I’m not sure if it was the 4 cups of coffee that I had consumed, the build up of the stress, or the kids getting into a fight, but that poor woman got a lot more than she bargained for in my response.....
I hadn’t talked to anyone about my feelings about being a stay at home mom and how it made me feel like I wasn't contributing to the household, and how unfulfilling it was personally. So when this woman asked how I was doing, it all just came pouring out.
All of the frustrations, stress, worry, sleepless nights and everything else, all in one big long rambling rant. She just stood there, nodding her head and listening sympathetically. Looking back now, she must have the patience of a saint because she didn’t seem phased at all!
When I had finished she looked me directly in the eyes and said...
"I completely understand what you are going through. I too went through nearly the same thing myself just a few months ago."
So I asked her what all she had to do to earn that commission check. The answer was staggering! She told me she had made two phone calls and had 3 email conversations back and forth with the team mom for the baseball travel team. 3 weeks later she had the order turned in and her commission. Here is the kicker.......it was for the travel team HER KID PLAYED ON!!!
Where has this lady been all this time?
Why do I not know about these opportunities? She had gone on to explain to me how for the last 6 months she has exploded with sales and now is doing several team sales a month. She does this merely on a word of mouth referral basis.
So I got up the nerve to ask her who she was working with, and if there was anyway she would hook me up with the company. I didn't want her to think I was trying to step on her toes. To my surprise, she was more than willing to give me the company information, and even offered to invite me to a regular webinar call they host to introduce the opportunity.
I thought Today may just be my lucky day!
Fast Forward through the quick painless setup...
I started talking to people at the ball park, the soccer field, the church, the grocery.....passing out my cards and within the first week I had 3 teams sign up to do my fundraiser...WOOHOO!
After 3 months I had signed up several teams, had people calling me daily asking about it and was on a roll.
I was starting to make a regular income and was only working a couple hours a day.
On the 36th Day I received my first commission check for $567.00!
