Finding a career you’re passionate about is the best feeling ever! 🙌🏼
But watching your business positively impact lives, grow and flourish, while developing work-life management, focusing on self-care, and achieving financial freedom is even better!❣️
From $20 in my bank account left from my savings, not knowing how I was going to pay rent the next month and take care of my daughter, my company International Parenting & Health Institute was born! 🤱🏻
Not only did I find a solution for this massive challenge I faced as a single mom, but I found a way utilizing all my talents, skills, training and education to positively impact the lives of families and children while helping others who were in a similar position like me start and grow successful businesses. 🌟
Here I am 10 years later starting out from almost nothing to growing a business that is now represented in 46 countries with over 3000 graduates, 20 instructors and programs in 9 different languages. 🌏
Today I am proud to prelaunch and share with you a preview of my company’s new website and certification program offerings. 📚
