Say what? What in the world do my business online, Mom and Homemade Salsa have to do with each other? A lot actually. As you probably already know my elderly mother has gone through some very serious health issues in the past 6 months. I’m the designated daughter; the primary care giver. When we bought our home 16 years ago my husband built an apartment addition for my mother. What a blessing that turned out to be. While my mom is able to have some semblance of independence, really, I now take care of her. She doesn’t get around well and would not be able to live alone anymore if she weren’t right here.
If it weren’t for my business online, when Mom’s health failed and we had to spend so much time traveling back and forth to specialists, clinics and hospitals, I would never have been able to hold down a J-O-B. I would have had to quit or would have gotten canned. Either way, it would have been a catastrophe for our family and finances. That’s why I love having a business online. I was able to work on my laptop while she was in treatments, keep up with my email and social media on my phone and work from home at all kinds of odd hours. I have that flexibility because I learned how to set up and manage a business online.
Learning how wasn’t easy, it wasn’t quick like some tell you it is. There’s a huge learning curve, but it isn’t difficult if you have the right training. I’m not a technology geek, just a woman with a strong desire to put family first and the tenacity to stick to it until I made it happen. Honestly, it didn’t need to take as long as it did for me. I didn’t get the right training right away. I got stuck and couldn’t figure out how to get unstuck. Then I found the right mentor and got the kind of coaching I needed to see success. It was uphill from there.

Now back to my story about homemade salsa…
My mother is recovering quite well, but during her recuperation, she’s had too much time on her hands, watched way too many infomercials and read too many junk mail offers. Every couple of days a package of some kind arrives at her doorstep. One day it was several Topsy Turvys for growing tomato plants upside down, then a collapsible garden hose to water them with, seeds from some seed catalog she got in the mail. It goes on and on. She is gardening vicariously through me. (Whether I wanted to garden or not) So, today I made home made salsa with the results of her gardening purchases and my efforts. The fresh cilantro makes all the difference!
I wouldn’t have had time to indulge her with gardening if I had been working outside the home and taking care of her too! We are oh-so grateful, having a business online is a blessing in so many ways.
