This iReport is part of an assignment:
The new American job: Part time?
Single Dad of 4 Went From Laid Off IT Nerd to Relationship Marketing Regional Director
As a single parent of 4, what I value the most is time with my kids and my freedom. I realized that I traded hours for dollars and that my other part time jobs: (restaurants, side computer jobs.. etc) either did not pay enough or did not give me the flexibility to attend my children's events and activities. I needed a change and for things to change, I had to change and it started with the way that I thought. Why did I let employers tell me what I was worth or how much I could work, or when I could leave? Give me a level playing field, where my race, religion, education, and background are not factors in my earning potential...well I found it and it's in Relationship Marketing, I believe it's America's new part time opportunity.
Relationship marketing offers everyone a level playing field, significant earning potential, team minded success and promotions based on performance not seniority.. Most people overlook these opportunities equating them with door to door sales...and for me that is exactly what I thought. I felt the same way and it wasn't until I found out how it worked that I realized I had been missing out simply because of my ignorance.
I went from being unemployed to making more part time than what some people were doing full time. Now I set my own schedule, I'm impacting lives, helping others and getting paid well to do so. It's taken about 6 months to accomplish this. I am not saying its easy but I am saying it's worth it. My time with my kids is worth it. I realized nothing changes if nothing changes. Create something great for you and your family, for your future. If you are looking for a plan b in your life, out of job, out of hope, like I was..you definitely need to take a look at Relationship Marketing. What are you waiting for? This is your time, this is your year, everything changes for you when you believe then decide to take action.
Make it a great year.
