About ShareeO LORD, you have examined my heart and know everything about me. You know when I sit down or stand up. You know my thoughts even when I'm far away. Psalms 139: 1-2
I started working online in 2004 after fleeing an abusive relationship that left me a single mom of two sons, one of which is chronically disabled. I found myself unable to commute to a full or part time job because I had to perform eight hours of dialysis daily on my then 2 year old son. On top of the task of dialysis, I had an overwhelming amount of hospital visits and stays because of his end-stage renal disease. I needed to find a way to support my family, and fast. I turned to the internet and like so many others before me, I was introduced to the networking, MLM world. I tried several of the companies and found this type of income was not for me. Not only did I lose precious time and resources by investing in these well-known make-up and jewelry
companies, but I left the companies feeling like a failure from the “it’s you, not the program” mentality that is rampant within MLM based culture. Most importantly what I discovered was these companies didn’t supply the major need that I had, a need for a consistent paycheck to feed my kids and pay my bills. I left the world of network marketing in search of just that, a position with a company that would pay the bills by providing me reliable, consistent, stable income. What I found in 2006 was the emerging world of online outsourcing and legitimate work from home job solutions. The overwhelming relief I felt after finding out that there were many companies (many of which were big brand and well known) who were willing to pay me to work from home was indescribable. At the time, this seemed to be the answer to my prayers. I was bringing in consistent income and paying the bills, all while staying home with my disabled child. Who could ask for more right?! Unfortunately, it was still very much a 9-5 job which didn’t allow for much flexibility for the many doctor appointments and hospital stays I encountered without my monthly income suffering. This again sent me searching to fine tune how I could work and bring in enough consistent income to support my family. It’s been a long journey with great joy as well as unimaginable tragedy…and the story isn’t over. Over the past 4 years I’ve suffered and survived the loss of two children – including my 15-year-old son, Jonathan, who succumbed to Leukemia related complications in early 2019. Also in that time, my husband and I welcomed a daughter to our family. Through it all, for the past 14 years I’ve sought to help other caregivers of the chronically disabled as well as many others who choose to stay home, market themselves in today’s job market or create their own online business.
Presently my focus is helping an oppressed population of human beings located in the United States, that many label as ‘Black’ as a tool to discriminate against and devalue. As a ‘Black’ entrepreneur, I help other ‘Black’ entrepreneurs create successful businesses so we can redeem our communities and economy from the devastating effects of racism, neglect, and disinvestment.
