What My Southern Mom Taught Me….that changed my life!
My little 5ft tall 7ft strong single mom taught me so many things, but I will start with one of my favorites! “Life is either a daring adventure, or it is nothing at all” Hellen Keller.
Mom’s philosophy lives strong to this day. I don’t know about your mom, but mine took us out of school to go camping and tubing. We went on adventures on a regular basis as we did not grow up with a lot of money. She taught us to have fun and live life to the fullest. She didn’t just talk about it she lived it!
My mom: raised 4 children by herself, got her Masters at 40, was one of the 1st female financial planners for Raymond James. At 79, she still manages her clients financial portfolios, lives and works on her farm with chickens, horses, dogs and a cat called SAFE HAVEN.
Me: took 10 years to get my BS degree (because she also taught me to have fun), started a successful Fitness Company, moved across country with out a job, moved to Florida because the Ocean called me, started my 2nd Company because she believed in me and told me I could! Finally published my first book Inside the Ring.
