As I go through this journey without an 8-5 I have times when I get really stressed over not having a guaranteed paycheck. It's all in the mind set I know but, it's hard to change from being an employee to being self / unemployed. It's a huge shift. It doesn't help that all the people around you are asking you 100 questions every time they see you because they're stressed out that you don't have a traditional 'job'.
The way I see it, the world is changing. I've got to change. This old 'normal' is gone. The way of the future is finding your way and making it work for you. Corporate is stuck. As a country we're seeing and facing things we haven't faced with in this lifetime. As a nation our leaders have lost their minds. As a people we're all reevaluating our priorities and those that used to be climbing the corporate ladder have gone back to learning to be self-sufficient, frugal, and have an actual family life.
Some people and some marriages aren't making it. It's hard work to be involved. It's hard work to be accountable to someone outside of your boss at work. It's hard work to be real!
As part of all this I've started doing things like my blog. Countrymomsinglelife.com you're reading it now. I've started venturing into the world of ecommerce. I'm buying more than I'm selling but, for me it's MY SPLURGE to SELF - LOVE, I haven't tried them all yet (no regular paycheck remember) but, what I have tried I really like and I look forward to trying more.
Plexus has some amazing weight management tools and I need all the help I can get. I'm a stress eater and I have a self-diagnosed binge / overeating disorder. I also have slow thyroid function. The Metaburn is a great pick me up and get me moving Slim Microbiome and Lean Vegan Chocolate Protein shakes are what I've tried so far. The Vegan isn't my favorite I prefer the Whey but, I wanted to try it to see what the difference would be if it was tastable haha.. I'm excited to see what the newest thing I'm waiting on is going to be like. Plexus Active™ Natural Starfruit Guava Flavor Try it with me!! Go to mysite.plexusworldwide.com/Countrymomsinglelife/home
Then there is the QSciences some of their products I really like too. They have some CBD drink mixes that I love. The peach lemonade is a little stout in a 16-20oz bottle so I use a 33.8 (1 liter) bottle and it's much better. All of the others I've tried so far are good however you want to do it anywhere from 16-33oz. Crave and Hydrate are my favorite.
This time I'm waiting to try Q SPORT Dragon Berry it's a blend of chia seeds, natural caffeine, amino acids and other stuff to help pick you up and get you going through the day. I'm looking forward to testing this one and see how things go.
If you like the CBD side of things or you're looking for something a bit different try my Q Sciences at http://shop.myqsciences.com/countrymomsinglelife
There's so many things out there and ways to make money without that 8-5. I'm doing everything I can to take care of my boys, spend quality time with them, pursue my dreams, train my horses, and accomplish goals. I'm doing it. Physically I'm working harder from 6a-7p than I ever worked sitting in front of a computer 8-430. Mentally I'm learning new things, fixing my own stuff, being my own handyman, horsetrainer, medic, and more.... I'm a jack of all and master of none and my 'perspective' on life is changing ever day.
oh... and don't forget my ebay... look me up at jennhi-75 several hundred listings and new items added almost daily. I've got everything from collectibles to daily use electronics and new technologies like smart plugs.
While I wait on you guys to find me here, read my reviews, and make your own purchases I'm going to continue enjoying my Q Sciences and Plexus products and work on dropping 50-60lbs.
Join me..... Let's figure this out together...
