I Was an Addict With Nothing & Nobody; Now I'm a Successful Mom & Entrepreneur: Here's How I Turned My Life Around!

I am a successful mother of three with multiple businesses, a loving husband and respect from all those around me because of my hard work through life. This was not the case 11 years ago – I was an addict with nothing and nobody, bouncing around the world with no goals, no job and no ambition.

When I found out I was pregnant with my first child, I chose to quit everything cold turkey and become a hard-working member of society. I did not want to be anything like my mother, who raised me as an addict and kept us malnourished and poor. Because of my own dedication to pulling myself out of the hole I was in, I am now happy and living the life I always dreamed of!

You create who you will be and what you can do – don’t let anyone tell you any different. Whether you are homeless, addicted or just down on your luck, you can always change your future with hard work!

Does Unresolved Hurt From the Past Have You Looking From the Outside In? I Hope So...
