EP Motivating Force:
I found a career that I enjoyed and wanted to have my own business. This was a great career to work into my family plans.

My days are 6 am to 10 pm nonstop, but I am always there for my kids. I think that my children are learning from me that you have to work hard to have nice things, but still adhere to everyday commitments.

It takes time to adjust. Don't expect results overnight. Success takes time. Network!
