This post is taken from a feature article in the Forever Living magazine in July 2016, following Frances’ promotion in the business in January this year. It’s in Frances own words :
I did an engineering degree in the eighties and immediately went into the world of IT, working my way up to team leader. I loved my work, but my life completely changed when I had my children.
My children are both the result of IVF treatment, and so I knew that I wanted to be a stay-at-home mum. Life was wonderful, but when my youngest turned two, money started to become an issue and I was also diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. I needed to be able to work from home so I set up my own IT business. I loved the flexibility this business gave me and I would often work late into the night so that I could spend quality time with the children during the day.
Unfortunately my business was hit by the recession, and in 2011 I was divorced after twenty-four years of marriage. My life fell apart. I was on anti-depressants and my health was getting worse. I knew I had to change something but I also knew that I didn’t want to work for anyone else. One day I heard a lady talking about a recent promotion in her Forever business; she looked so happy. We met up and I immediately saw an opportunity which meant I could continue to work from home around my children. I signed up in June 2012.
After signing up my health started to improve and my confidence grew. But after getting to Assistant Manager I stopped believing in myself and my business stopped growing.
About a year ago I realised something had to change; I decided to work on my self-belief and my mindset and that’s when, in January 2016, I achieved Manager.
My life is getting more and more exciting every day, and my daughter (who is now eighteen and who has always believed I could do this) has also joined the business – she is now ready for when she goes to university in September! Forever has given me so much: I think it’s absolutely amazing that I’m able to set up my daughter with her own business at eighteen, and now I also have the freedom to spend time with my mum who is in her eighties.
I am so proud to call Frances a friend as well as my sponsor. She supports me in my business, and helps all my team too. We work together to help others build their Forever business.
