Former Uniform wearing, wife, & mother turned Entrepreneur…

Life, in general, will throw us curve balls. However, it’s our reaction that determines whether we come through unscathed or even better for the experience.

We all will experience that moment when we know it’s time to move-on, when thoughts become about dreading the rigors of commuting to work, slowly losing the passion you once had for your career field, missing many of our children’s functions—sometimes a year at a time, etc.  I was beginning to reach that moment of feeling like an absent disconnected mom to both my sons, who seemed to have become grown men overnight; it wasn’t a good feeling.  I was “that mom” who worked 14-16 hours days instructing Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen with a lot of late nights and missed weekends while maintaining two different households in two different states, two sons in college, and dealing with student issues; it all came to a head. I was numb, telling myself that I couldn’t physically keep this up (but saying in my head, “you’re a Soldier so suck it up). I was exhausted mentally and thought there has got to be something better than this groundhog-day routine that repeated itself daily.

My decision to hang up the uniform came with ease as the military decided I could retire early due to health challenges, but that date wouldn’t begin until March 10, 2016. Now, I had time to prepare, because it was only October 2015. I wasn’t worried as I’d worked for the Department of Defense before serving on active duty; really, how much could have changed? I was slapped in the face with reality. This two-time college graduate had submitted 50+ applications. I was highly qualified for many to be overqualified for a lot. I received one telephonic interview and another that wouldn’t seek further employment opportunities with me because they couldn’t agree to the salary terms I was requesting…. I was in shock – what am I going to do now? I’d worked in the healthcare industry for over twenty years; I wasn’t looking to start over let alone go back to school – that was out of the question; I’d just paid my student loan debt off. While all this pondering was taking place, I’d started a product called Thrive in December 2015 only to start feeling better and getting the restful sleep I needed at night. Even in light of all of the stress, my attitude and moods were calmed, when before, I’d have been bouncing off the walls since disability wouldn’t kick in until two months after retiring. So, I started taking a serious look at what the Thrive Experience was doing for me.


Day 1 - took my two capsules as soon as my eyes opened, waited 20-30 minutes later to drink my lifestyle mix, and slapped on my DFT. I felt a little energy and didn't stop at that “other” place for coffee. Umm, I thought to myself, why don't I want a cup?


Day 5 - my general stomach discomforts were noticeably calmer, and my feet weren't experiencing general achiness after pulling off my boots.


Day 10 - is when Thrive kicked in, and I had my “ah-ha” moment. My son asked what was going on because the dining room table was clear, dishes were washed, and he noticed I wasn't taking a 2-3 hour nap once I came home after working 14-16-hour days.

It didn’t take long to convince me the product worked, I started sharing and realized I could get my products for free by sharing Thrive with two friends. I was happy with that because it wouldn’t be an additional financial cost while I was figuring out what I was going to do for employment. March 2016, I had ten days left before retiring. I started seeing Facebook posts/videos about Le-Vel’s yearly convention being held in Dallas. I was excited because everyone genuinely looks SO happy. I decided to attend this event to help me make my final decision as to whether or not I would promote the company full time from home.

April 2016 rolled around, and I was getting used to not having to get up at 2:30 am to get ready for work and be out the door at 3 am. I had the freedom to visit my husband who was still working in Oklahoma. Life was good. I was able to help my husband pack and move during his imminent transfer, visited friends and relaxed. While traveling back to San Antonio, TX, 56 miles from home all the lights and engine cut completely off at 80mph in the fast lane. I started to pray, “Lord, just let me coast to the side of the road and call for help.” I called the insurance company for a tow and called my husband and son to come get me. As I waited in the heat on the side of the road, I decided to record and post a motivational video. At the time I was recording, I didn’t remember what I had said until I went back and watched it later. The gist was to be resilient in the times of adversity and to focus on what one could learn from the experience. I was starting to recognize the women I hadn’t seen in a long time. The status of my vehicle was that the engine blew and it would cost $8K or more to fix. I asked the dealership to give me a day to think about it, but I already knew I wasn’t putting that kind of money into a 13-year old vehicle. Then it dawned on me; I already paid for my convention ticket to Dallas and the hotel room that was just two weeks away; what on earth was I going to do? I hadn’t had a car payment since 2009!

I remembered that with the company I received my products from I could earn a luxury car bonus. I immediately got on my knees and prayed about what I should do. BMW came into my heart. I sat down and sent correspondence through BMW’s website. I explained my situation and almost immediately received a response from the General Manager (which I thought was strange) and made an appointment to meet with him the next day. I received the best customer service that day! I walked into that dealership on FAITH and walked out with a brand-new vehicle; it was April 11, 2016. Now, it was time to put my plan to work. I took a closer look at the LV Reward’s Plan realizing I needed to earn the rank of 12K VIP before I could earn the auto bonus. I had 14-days to achieve my goal by April 30, 2016, at 11:59 pm EST…. GLORY TO GOD… I DID IT with a day to spare!

I’ve worked from home sometimes in my PJs for the past two years. Although I’m former military, I found working out more challenging with general discomforts and not enough energy to even attempt to go to the gym. Since obtaining clean all-day energy, I’ve incorporated a healthy daily workout routine, to include weight-training, resistance, cardio, clean eating and my three simple steps that provides all the vitamins/minerals our bodies need to function at peak performance. I’ve lost a significant amount of weight and feel 15-years younger. My supplement routine can be complete before ever leaving home. I take two capsules as soon as my eyes open on an empty stomach before my feet hit the floor, I wait 20-30 minutes later to drink my pre/probiotic lifestyle mix, and place my foam DFT (derma fusion technology) to clean dry skin on a lean area of my body. I AM DONE FOR THE DAY!

Our opportunity is Simple, Social, FUN, and FREE to join. There are no fees, no inventory, and no quotas. God answered my prayer to show me something that made me feel amazing through a caring friend. This journey has been unlike anything I've EXPERIENCED before.
