Hello, I’m Sara, the Well-Heeled Mommy. I’ve just embarked on a most extraordinary journey. This journey promises greater financial freedom for my family and more time to form cherished memories with my children and husband.
My hope and intention in sharing this experience with you is that you might be inspired to also step out and lay hold of the life of your dreams. You’re worth it, so too is your family. If I can do it, you can too.
This journey began after nearly 11 years of marriage, two magnificent children, and considerable deliberation. Following the birth of our first child, we were struck with the painful realization that very little of our lifestyle reflected our true selves.
Worse yet this was the lifestyle we’d constructed for our children and lest we abandon course, they’d know very little of our true passions and hearts’ desires.
I so feared modeling a life of little consequence and great compromise. I wanted my son to have a zeal for life, not merely a monetarily profitable discipline. I wanted him to know the highs of great thrills and passions. I wanted him to experience and live life, not simply conform to the constraints of our profitable pursuits.
Prior to having children, we committed ourselves to my husband’s career. We moved, on average, every 12 – 18 months. Every move promised a more prestigious title and greater pay. But, with each transition came a higher price tag-a greater demand of his time, less distinction between work life and personal life, greater distance between our home and the things we loved (skiing, biking, wild life, nature, etc.), and less opportunity to pursue our passions.
So finally we drew a line in the sand.
My husband left his industry and we bought a home in the mountains. Shortly after, my husband found a job and I remained at home with our children.
Much to my surprise certain yearnings persisted. Our lifestyle still left much to be desired. Though we now live in a spectacular setting, my husband is still seldom available to share in our fun and money remains a constant concern.
What’s more, I’ve acquired a nagging sense that its time to apply myself to something new. I’ve labored over what this something new could be. I have little to no free time and no desire to sideline my children for a new pursuit.
Then I encountered SFM and DEA. Through these two resources, I am now acquiring invaluable skills that enable me to effectively and profitably apply myself to this digital age. I’m growing increasingly more fluent in the language of the web and, even better, receiving a generous return for the small investment of my time.
My intention is to eventually free up my husband to regularly join us on our much loved adventures.
Please join me on this journey. See the results first-hand as I share about my progress and our everyday life. Then ask yourself if its time to make a similar change in your life.
