From traveling the world with the US Navy to living in Las Vegas. Then, working from home in a suburb of Chicago… Find out how this single, stay at home mom has started realizing her ultimate Escape Plan.
The EscapeDates Personal Profile you’re currently reading is just an example of the many feature profiles to come. People all over the world are envisioning and working toward their Escapeartist Dream, and we want to share with you how they’re doing it. For me, EscapeDates has truly been a dream a come true.
Here is my story – I hope you enjoy it….
I’m 28 years old and have been traveling the world since the ripe old age of 21. By the time I had my daughter at 23, I had literally been around the world and back. I started out traveling to Mexico, studying Spanish in an immersion program that had me living with a family in Mexico and forgetting my English. When I went into the Navy, the first thing we did was head out to sea. I landed in San Francisco first, but within a few short months, I had been to Japan, Singapore (twice!), Hawaii, Dubai, and off the coast of India, overlooking a little town called Goa. Most people at that age have never even heard of some of these places, and here I was… riding camels in the middle of the desert and eating BBQ’d stingray. Talk about living!
When I had my daughter, it all came to an abrupt halt. My fun and spontaneous life was put on hold while I came home to do the family thing. As the years went on, I began to feel more and more stuck in my situation. None of the ventures I was throwing myself into were working out, and I wasn’t at all happy with where my life was headed. Until the day I realized exactly what it is that makes my heart sing… Adventure.
For 7 years, I have been searching for a business that I could get into with excitement, talk about with PASSION, and commit to practically effortlessly. I joined opportunity after opportunity, each time knowing that this one would be different. The company was legitimate. The product was great. And no matter what, it was better than getting the dreaded “j.o.b.”. (Journey Of the Broke, as I’ve grown to call it.)
To date, I have been involved with EIGHT (8) different network marketing companies and even owned my own Social Media Management company along my quest to find the perfect business. Unfortunately, I have struggled every step of the way due to my stubborn ways and refusal to do what all of my family and so-called friends were “advising” me to do… Give up, and get a REAL job!
A real job…sounds more like prison to me…I avoided it like the plague.. no matter how hard it got. A true blessing came my way when I met Ted McGrath, a Personal Empowerment Coach who is now working with Escapeartist. Ted is on a mission to help people create their Escape Plan. Ted instilled in me that I shouldn’t be doing anything I didn’t absolutely love to do. Within days of his Business Breakthrough Intensive, where I had made the decision to focus on my PASSION, all the old stuff that no longer served me fell away, and I moved substantially closer to having a business I would fall in love with.
Ironically enough, on the very day that I turned my perspective around about what getting a job could do for me and my dreams was the day I was asked to take a part-time position with EscapeDates. — Get PAID to do online networking?! I was in.
I have to admit. I didn’t know what EscapeDates was at first. To stimulate community conversation was what I was I was good at. It didn’t matter what it was for. And I really liked the position, so I wasn’t going to admit that I didn’t “get it” yet. However, as the weeks went on (and I had time to wear it for a bit), it suddenly dawned on me… This was the opportunity of my DREAMS. How had I not seen it before?
EscapeDates offered the ultimate product – Relationships, Travel and a Portable Business I could do from anywhere in the world! Love it!
Sitting in the audience of a Meetup group called ‘Meet, Plan, GO!’, I listened as all the people talked about escaping from their jobs and travelling to exotic places. Some even took their families! They talked about all the amazing places they had been as well as their fears about how they would continue to pay for it. It took feeling nostalgic and completely heart sick about what I longed so badly to do, for it to FINALLY hit me… I had the very thing they (and I) needed!
The rest is history. EscapeDates is in Beta which means it hasn’t officially launched and I already know that this is the business for me. No matter what I plan to do in the future, I can do it right here and get paid to build it. I already run about 5 different groups on FaceBook and was looking to start one on Meetup.com. Now, I can create a whole other stream of income from it! To me, that’s amazing, and I couldn’t be more excited for my future… for the future of all those who get involved.
This is going to be a blast! I am ready to realize my Escapeartist Dream…want to join my global social network and come with me on this journey?
