"I became a LegalShield associate in 2009 because
I like rooting for the underdog and strongly believe in
justice for all. 

Now, with LegalShield, even the little guy has an affordable means with which to access the legal system, just like the
big guns.  LegalShield levels the playing field, and I'm all
for that!"
~ Evelyn

"I switched to Intuit's QuickBooks software in the mid-1990's,
when I ran a successful whitewater rafting company.
QuickBooks was relatively easy to setup and
payroll was a cinch.

My CPA was impressed with my year-end books and suggested
I teach these newfound skills to some of his other business clients, whom he said could benefit from the training.  A bookkeeping career was born.

has fast become the #1 accounting software in the
nation and I've maintained a steady and loyal client-base for over two decades."

I've made purchases on eBay since 2003, but it wasn't until April of 2013 when I decided to test the waters as an eBay Seller.  It was so much fun and so vastly different from my QuickBooks skill-set that I've continued because I simply enjoy the process.  Learning how systems work is fun for me; from taking item pictures and uploading the photos, to creating the listing content and designing a layout.  
I just love hearing the "Cha-Ching!" SOLD ringtone on my eBay phone app and seeing the $$rack up in my PayPal account!  

My eBay Store consists primarily of blank IRS tax forms spanning multiple years
(currently over 250+ items) ... but, you never know what other treasures
you may find ... please, check it out.

 My faith shines brightly in all of my days.  Since 2005, when I (finally) let Jesus catch me, my life is lived in technicolor -- everything prior to that day pales in comparison.  I had led a life of dull, boring, predictable grays.  Today I have purpose and know my Redeemer lives.

My first favorite verse was Galatians 5:22-23 -- ... the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
This verse was my pattern, my very own barometric measuring stick, if you will.  I'd use it when mentally checking-in with myself.  Down the list I'd go ... if I was
at peace, I knew I was on the right track.  Learning for me is a joy,
something that I treasure, so studying the Word and finding it's
relevance in today's work-a-day world is so satisfying to me.

I am richly blessed, highly favored and deeply loved.
  Never a dull, boring day again, in Jesus' name. Selah!

We've been a 'Melaleuca home' since 2010.  Melaleuca products are safer for your home, highly effective, powered by nature, eco-friendly and a better value.  Their concentrated formulas offer more cleaning power at less cost per use than many national brands. 

I have Melaleuca product samples that I am eager to leave with you so you can try them out for yourself.  ~ Evelyn

Melaleuca ~ The Wellness Company.
Melaleuca isn't your typical company.  While other companies define themselves in terms of profit and growth, we measure our success by an entirely different factor--our ability to enhance your life.

When you take the focus off the profits and put it on the people, something amazing happens.  You get products that are safer for your home, gentler on the environment, and a better value than anything you'll find on the shelves of a grocery store.

But Melaleuca's definition of wellness extends far beyond the products.

Chances are, you learned about Melaleuca from a friend, coworker, or neighbor.  That's because we don't spend money on advertising or retail middlement.  And as a result, we are able to share our profits with those who share our products.

And while Melaleuca offers more than 350 exclusive wellness products, they represent something far more valuable than items on a shelf; they represent the ability to enhance your health, your environment, your finances, and your quality of life.  That's why Melaleuca exists.  That's why we're known as The Wellness Company.
