Our marriage changed slightly. We were both feeling the stresses of work, and we both struggled to spend equal time with each other and our son while also managing our businesses. We snapped at each other a bit more, and struggled to find our ‘happy’.
This year was very tough. Even though I was home-based, I was working all day and sometimes into the early morning hours. I was dedicated to getting America’s Footprints off the ground, and didn’t stop learning whatever I could to make it a success.
But I officially left my training business in June. So I didn’t have any steady income since then. We had been relying solely on savings and on Ania’s income (which has helped tremendously). But to go from a fairly steady paycheck and minimal working hours to absolutely nothing was a difficult transition.
I know this will not be easy. I know the road ahead is still a long one. But again I am not afraid to experience this transition in an effort to better the life for my mom and family.
