I’m so glad you’re here! My goal is to help you … and for you to trust me to do that, you might like to know a little about me. First and foremost, I’m God’s child; then a wife to my precious, GOOFY hubby, a mom to our incredible kiddos, and Coco/Mama Carol to our “second-generation” kiddos.
I grew up in rural North Mississippi, raised by my mother and grandmother, who were both teachers. Right after my 16th birthday, Mother and the boys and I moved about an hour and a half south, where Mother had taken another teaching position. That little town is the home of Mississippi University for Women, where I proceeded to graduate with a degree in economics – which is hilarious because I still can’t balance a checkbook without Quicken!
Armed with my econ degree, upon graduation from The W, I promptly became a legal secretary, which lasted for three years, at which time I became a freelance court reporter, using the Gregg shorthand which I’d learned my junior year in high school.
Fast forward. In my freelance court reporting business, I eventually got to the point where I had trained more newbie court reporters than anyone else in the state with the exception of the University of Mississippi. Also on the court reporting agenda was to become an official reporter in the federal court system in Mississippi, which I thoroughly enjoyed and where I worked for many years.
In 2014 I decided I needed more time for my family, so I retired from federal court.
Having the additional time to help my children with their children has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life, and I thoroughly enjoy it, so I wasn’t looking for the business opportunity that literally dropped in my lap one afternoon. I’d just spend three weeks with my precious 100-year-old grandmother, caring for her in the hospital and hospice, and I was whipped, both physically and mentally. I decided to listen to the opportunity just to get my mind off where I’d been.
And the rest is history. I hold a gift in my hands. A gift that can truly change your life, just like it’s changing mine. I’m contributing financially to our household but not by getting up and going to a physical office every day.
