How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I first heard of 48Days.com in 2002 at Dave Ramsey's Counselor Training. That's when I first met Dan Miller too. I was in awe - and wanted to be a part of it. In the community I hope to help others and be helped - as a community anything can happen.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
In 1997 I had a stellar year - I met/married my husband AND started Rockin' Beeby Enterprises, LLC. I started as a small business financial manager and my company continues to evolve into financial coach, career coach, small business coach, Workshop Facilitator (hope to add 48 Days Workshops AND QBQ Workshops in 2012), and am CFO to 2 other family businesses + trustee of a family trust.
And then...what is the goal/dream you are striving for regarding your work life?
My family always tells me that "I only want to have fun". So, that's what I do - I have fun. My passions are teaching/coaching, financial management, and day dreaming (about new ideas). The goal is to continue making an income pursuing my dreams and passions and help as many people as I can along the way.
For 2012 I am working on a new Corporate Program to incorporate financial wellness into businesses Wellness Programs. I'm also working on packaging my Math & Money Curriculum for school financial literacy programs.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I love to travel. If you mention sailboat or snorkling (maybe even scuba diving - I am certified) I'll probably ask to jump in your suitcase. My moto - work hard = play hard. My husband and I have spent the last 10 years working towards "financial peace" - we are now 100% debt free, house too. Now we are agressively building our retirement funds so that we can play. I print a calendar each year to display my travels (photography hobby).
What would you say are your core competencies? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
I'm wired to talk to people, to learn about them, and to used all my education and training to help them work towards their goals. I love to read and learn new things and then share that with others.
