About Me and My Candles!!!

So I have thought about this, and I have decided to close down my other blog, Freedom From Corporate. It was the blog that I did for my home based candle business. I think one blog is enough to keep me from going insane, or drive me insane, not sure which one yet...

My reasons for shutting it down and putting everything on one blog are this: I have always hated the split personalities of sales people. You walk into a store and they are on the phone blabbing to one of their friends, or talking to a co-worker, and they sound like a real person. Then they see you, suddenly there is a change. Out comes the sales pitch, and up comes my walls!!! I think it can be even worse online. You get all this hype and sales and you never get the real feel for the person behind the website.

That is why I decided what the heck, I am going to put it all together. Because the truth is, I decided to do this home based business to have more time at home, to be a mother, and a wife. To be me. So I think it is only fair that anyone else reading this gets to know the real me as well!

So below is a brief blurb taken from my "Freedom From Corporate" blog to tell you a little bit about what I do. I also have a business website that you can check out by clicking here -> The Best Candle Business

A year and a half ago,  In an attempt to have more time for the family, I have decided to give up the corporate world to find more time and freedom for my new family and life. I had a home based business that I had been dabbling in for a while and that provided the perfect opportunity to do something that would allow me the ability to focus more of my time and energy where it was truly needed, the kids.

After a long heartfelt talk with my husband and kids, it was decided, a home based business and network marketing really was the path to Freedom From the Corporate world! I decided I wanted to empower other women both personally and professionally and here I am.

I hope that I am able to inspire you to reach for your dreams and achieve them!!!

I love that you are working from home and starting a new business. I did the same for the past 2 years and loved every minute of it. Let me know if you need help getting followers to your blog - took me about 6 months to figure it out, but I don't mind passing what I know to you.(I am no expert - just a mommy blogger trying to be a writer)

Thank you so much for following my blogs . . . I'm following you back :-)

I started out with one blog that combined everything, including a business. My interests are so varied that my blog was jammed with a little bit of everything. For me, having different blogs for the varied interests works better . . . although it is more work.

Have an awesome week . . . Gina
