I am blessed with a full-time job as a music teacher. I teach general music for grades 1-3, 5 and 6 and choir for junior high and high school students. I just finished my 10th year of teaching at Stryker Local Schools.
On July 1, 2011 I began Miehls Healthy Life Source which is a home-based business. My purpose for starting this business is to pay off debt. I have tried other home businesses, such as Pampered Chef and Premier Designs. While I loved the products, I didn't love that I was away from my family all day as a teacher and away from them again in the evenings with my second job.
With Miehls Healthy Life Source, I do not have to be away from home. With my phone and computer, I walk potential enrollees through a series of videos on Delivering Wellness with Melaleuca. There are 5 product lines: EcoSense (cleaning and laundry), Vitality for Life (vitamins and supplements), Bath & Body, Sei Bella (cosmetics) and Pharmacy. If the enrollee likes what he or she sees, I set up their account for them and help them place their first order. I can still be present with my family while helping pay off debt.
My goal is to be debt-free in 5-10 years, but ideally it will be closer to 5.
