Jay & Barbara Morrow
As a police officer and a lab
technologist, we were making a "good" income, but we were tired of giving half
of our paychecks away in taxes and watching our bank accounts shrink as our two children
got older and more expensive. A financial advisor told us to start a home-based business,
which would allow us to generate some extra income and put ourselves in a better tax
position, by developing tax benefits, not available to two professionals on salaries.
Our belief in ourselves and our ability to make the business
work was very low in the beginning. Neither one of us were comfortable around other
people, and the thought of having to meet and work with other people scared us half to
death. However, our sponsors Craig and Nancy Boan helped us so much in the beginning, and
we developed the confidence that we really could succeed.
The business is not a get rich quick deal. It takes time and
effort but the rewards both financial and otherwise far exceed anything else any other
venture has to offer.
