Profile Information

Life as a Mom, Student, Entrepreneur

I am a single parent with a 15 yr old daughter.  Her father and I are no longer together but he is very active in her life!  The past 3 years have been quite a change in venue with her and I and her father.  We have all done so good with adjusting and now her father and I are actually friends, again! 

Two years ago I lost my mom and for the first time, I found myself totally at a loss.  I did not know how to go about my days except on auto-pilot.  Which when it came to driving was not all that smart, thank goodness nothing ever happened.

In February of last year, I woke up one morning and decided I was going to go back to school.  I started and completed a certificate program years ago for the secretarial field.  I enjoyed it and always wish I would have continued on from there.  Researching for Business Management took a few days before I called Kaplan University Online and started the application process.  What a long time that seemed to take, but it was like mom was with me and so I was patient and seen the process through until I found out I got accepted.  I am now in my 6th term and I enjoy the classes I have taken, right now is Marketing.   My expected graduation date is April 2012.

Before I move on the Entrepreneur part, let me tell you about myself.  I grew up in northwest Iowa after being adopted by my parents when I was 2 years old.  I am Sioux Indian from Pine Ridge, S.D. where I have family still there.  We have connected through Facebook and I find it fun and interesting!  My parents have always been behind me even when they knew I was making a mistake.  They let me make the mistakes I did so I would learn from them on my own and in the long run, would become stronger for the lessons I learned.  I have 4 brothers and 1 sister that I grew up with.  I have so many fond memories from childhood and some not so fond, but who doesn't have both?

My mom was a nurse and I remember seeing her doing schoolwork when I was young.  So now that I am in school again, I think about her and know that I will succeed in school just as she did!  My dad retired as a truck driver and from him I learned my directions, how to read a map, math skills, and how to work hard at whatever the task at hand is.

Now onto my becoming an Internet Entrepreneur.  I am the administrator for a new website affiliated with Amazon.  It is a "one-stop-shop" where people are able to do anything in one stop.  From shopping, checking emails, networking, connecting with friends this site has everything a person needs. We will be updating the site regularly so our visitors will be sure to return and bring their friends with them.

I also have started a blog at Live Journal website.  Feel free to check out my site there also.
