Melodieann Whiteley – Network Marketer, Speaker, Author, Entrepreneur, and Coach
I love network marketing! I love being an entrepreneur! I’ve been both since 2000. And I have loved every minute of it.
In October 2000, my life took a completely unexpected detour. If you had told me before then that I would one day work from the comfort of my own home, that I would learn to make money online, speak before crowds, or write a book, I would have said you were crazy! My life was going as planned. First a career as a Navy Cryptologist and Russian linguist. Then raising my family in my husband’s hometown of Springdale, Arkansas. We owned a nice home. My daughters were active in school and we were active in church. I devoted my time to working for the local Girl Scout Council, an organization I fully support. My husband was an electronics technician for a large company. Life was good.
But then the unthinkable happened. We had just moved from Springdale to a larger home in a more rural area of Rogers, AR. My mom and dad were getting older and the plan was to move them into the house in Springdale so they would be closer to us. But just as everything seemed to be going according to plan, I received the phone call no daughter wants to get. My mother had suddenly passed away and I was left to care for my father.
My father suffered from Alzheimer’s disease. I had long ago promised that I would never place him in a home as long as I was able to care for him. I have nothing against nursing homes. But in our culture, aging parents are cared for at home as long as possible. And so we put the house in Springdale up for rent and prepared to welcome my father into our home.
It soon became clear that I was not going to be able to continue working outside the home and care for him. But how to quit my job and still earn a living? I searched everywhere for the answer. And then one day, I met the two people who would change my life. One introduced me to network marketing. The other introduced me to the power of the internet. And the rest – as they say – is history.
I had the privilege of caring for my father for eight years. In 2008, he passed on, having spent his final years surrounded by children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. I still miss him looking over my shoulder while I’m working asking what I’m writing.
I share all this with you because it shows what having your own business, especially a network marketing business, can do. Without this opportunity, my father would have spent his final years in a home, waiting for us to find the time in our busy schedules to stop by for a quick visit. This industry gave me the freedom to keep my promise to him. And after he was gone, it gave me the ability so spend time with grandchildren, to create fabulous memories with my family, to travel with my husband, to meet amazing people, and to help so many others change their lives.
If you are willing to learn and work hard, you can have this freedom too. You can create the life you have always wanted for you and your family. Are you ready? Let’s do this!
