Longaberger® Baskets are a very important part of my life. When I first started selling them over 10 years ago I read all the success stories and said to myself "Yeah Right"!! Well all those things have really come to pass for me. One of the biggest changes Longaberger® has made in my life has been to give me the confidence to go out and face the world head on. I am no longer afraid to say no and I do tend to stand up for myself much more than I did 7 years ago. Recently I went through a major change in my life. After 21 years of marriage I made the decision that enough was enough. If it had not been for the strength that I have gained through running my own business I don't think I would have been able to make this decision and carry through with it. Sure, I have done odd jobs over the course of 21 years, but running your own business and doing it successfully does make a difference on your outlook on life and what you can accomplish if you put your mind to it. I have recently made a move to a very nice town in the northern part of Atlanta, called Woodstock, GA. The only one I knew when I made this move was my sister, who lives about 30 miles away from where I am at. Close but not too close, which is good for her and good for me also. We love each other too much to want to step on each others toes. She has been a great source of strength to me in making me feel that I can do just about anything if I really set my mind to it. Not only her but the rest of my family has always been there for me. I remember when I first got married, my daddy told me, if it didn't work out he would pay for me to come back home, but that he would only do it once time. Luckily, I never had to ask him for that. At least I know that option is still there since I never had to ask for that before. So I know if I should fall on my face trying to stand on my own two feet my parents will be there to pick up the pieces. What a GREAT family I have. Friends are great but I gotta tell you if you are ever lucky enough to have a family like I do, you are one of the luckiest people alive.
