Many years ago, I was in an abusive relationship. Thankfully, my father helped me get on my feet with working from home. I was a new mom and I hadn’t left yet for good, thinking he would change. (Fun fact: It takes the average woman 9 times to leave finally for good.) What I had with me was a computer, the internet, and software my father purchased for me. I hooked up to Upwork (under a different name at the time) and landed my first gig working with a company and their tutorial. It was my first step towards feeling like I could accomplish something, despite being told I was “no better than a dog” by my now ex-husband.
My long term goal for my company (in it’s infancy) is to offer a place for women to get that same confidence and feeling of accomplishment I had after finishing my first virtual job. I would love to provide training in various fields (like real estate, property & casualty insurance, appraisals, being a virtual assistant) and offer them a helping hand towards their goals and their futures. If that sounds like something you’d like to foster, please reach out to me to be a client, a sponsor, etc.
If you are in an abusive relationship, please know there is hope and people willing to help. Feel free to reach out to me on my personal Facebook page and I will help you find resources in your area. You are worth it!
