I’m a down-to-earth type of person. Everyone knows they can count on me because I’m always eager to help and I offer solutions. Somehow I seem to always know what to do. Despite the fact that I usually live in my own little world, I’m pretty practical. My personal approach to life is generally inspirational to all that I meet. I’m big on “chemistry.” I either share it with someone or I don’t, and there’s no in between. People can really tell I have a zest for life. As a result of this, I tend to be outgoing and friendly in social settings & people sometimes consider me the life of the party. But deep down inside, I’m actually very reserved when it comes to my true feelings. With the right person or situation, the real romantic in me starts to emerge. I don’t like huge public displays of affection. When I’m really in to someone, I prefer my feelings be kept just between us two, because it’s more special that way. It’s that most important person in my life who knows just how passionate I really can be. As for everyone else, well, what they don’t know can’t hurt them. I have spunk, style, and charisma like no other! Cool drinks, good friends, and a warm summer breeze off the Atlantic Ocean are all I need to be completely content. I may not realize my full potential until I’m a bit older, but I know for sure that if I put my mind to it, I can do absolutely anything.
So, here’s how it all started.
My story started in 2004. I was a 29-year-old, single mother sitting in the house month in and month out struggling to make sure she and her daughter had the necessities of life. I’m legally blind; so, my only sources of income were SSI and welfare. One day, while sitting in our living room, I looked over at my daughter and said “I’m going to make sure that you always have what you need. You will never have the old-fashioned childhood that I grew up in. I promise” while getting up and walking across the room and sitting at the desktop PC. Every day for the next year and a half, the I sat in front of that desktop browsing for ways to make money from home. I tried every possible opportunity, only to be scammed over and over and over. Then, in July 2005, I decided to take a stab at network marketing. I founded a home-based business called Solo Enterprises (which was changed to Granted Limitations in 2011), and the rest is history.
Fast forward to 2016. My daughter is all grown up and has started a family of her own, I have moved to Maryland, and for a while, life just kept getting better! I renamed my home business (yes, AGAIN). That year, Keeping It A Thousand was born. I now solely run a home-based multi-business that is themed on network marketing. Despite being legally blind, I have managed to accomplish many things that most people felt I could never do.
