We had little money to live on when we were first married in 1965. He earned $87.00 a week and I didn’t work outside the home. To help with the finances, I began babysitting. Seventy-five cents an hour wasn’t much, but every little bit helped.

I knew that at some point I would want to retire. I also wanted my business, which I started in 1981, Buy Directly From Amazon to thrive after I sold it and I wanted my nearly 1,200 clients to be well taken care of. For that to happen, I had a lot of work to do.

In 1967, I had a thirty-five dollar budget for two weeks of groceries and used a hand held plastic counter to add everything I put into my shopping cart. If it went over by even one dollar, I didn’t have the money and would have to put something back. This may sound stressful and difficult, but at the time I enjoyed the challenge and seeing how far I could stretch a dollar. We ate well. I baked most from scratch, rather than using expensive mixes. And I really enjoyed seeing what I could accomplish.

As a single parent, it was so difficult to raise two girls on my own. When I was at work, I felt guilty that I wasn’t with them. And when I was with them, I often couldn’t put my work away since it was what was keeping a roof over our heads. I devised a way to figure out what was going on even when I wasn’t there.

I believe we can do pretty much anything we want to in life. We just have to want it badly enough and truly believe in ourselves.
