Being a mother isn't easy especially when you don't have a strong support group backing you up. Trying to work a regular 9 to 5, go to school, parent-teacher conferences, doctor appointments and other duties that come with being a parent would make you pull your hair out. No matter how hard it got or the many times I wanted to quit, God gave me the strength to persevere.
It came a time when I was not interested in working for anyone but myself. I started looking for ways that I can make income while being able to being the best mom I could be to my children. That's how my love of making jewelry came about however making an income from it didn't come over night so I still had to work on another man schedule to invest in my business. It didn't happen over night, but I was able to work from home, give more time to my children and to my business.
