Just a few years ago I was working in a very stressful job running a recruitment agency. The hours were long and I had two small children in nursery, which meant that I saw less of them than I wanted and I had high childcare costs.
It got to the point where it was so stressful that I started looking at alternatives. I wanted to work fewer hours, commute less and spend more quality time with my children. In essence I wanted a rewarding lifestyle, not just living to work.
In addition, because of the nature of my role there was very little opportunity for career progression, especially if I wanted to work more flexible hours. Limited progress led to a capped income and that was not what I wanted for my future.
Initially I fitted 'Forever' around my busy job and children and welcomed the extra income that we were able to spend on family holidays and everyday extras. Gradually as my business evolved I was able to leave my corporate role and spend more time with my family.
I am truly grateful to be building a business that is paying me a significant full-time income whilst allowing me to work around our family life. Our children are now at school, giving me more time to invest in my 'Forever' business which has seen my income increase tenfold.
One of the main aspects I love about 'Forever', is that we are rewarded for effort; the harder you work, the more time you put into your business, the more income you can earn.
As a family we now enjoy a great lifestyle with the income and freedom to travel when we choose, enabling us to experience moments we'll treasure forever.
