My name is Yvonne Berry Johnson and I’m from the Michigan area. I received my Bachelor’s Degree at Western Michigan University and I am a proud member of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. After college, I became a Probation Officer in the Detroit Metro area…and I was MISERABLE. I had so many high hopes and dreams for my future. I thought I could “change the world”! It probably took me all of 6 months in my so called “real job” to realize that I was not changing anything in that court system! I did everything Dave Ramsey said NOT to do. I got myself an apartment, new furniture and a new car and had acquired so much debt I NEEDED that paycheck. I was making just enough money for me to put up with the system but not enough to leave. I then decided maybe Law School was the way to go, so I began taking my LSAT classes hoping 4 years in Law School would “cure” my current disappointment. Around that same time, a good friend asked me to look into Network Marketing/Direct Sales. That decision (thank you Lisa, Lawrence and Robert Dean) literally changed my entire life. Today…I am a full time, professional home business owner and loving life! It took some hard work…but man was it worth it!
I’m now in my 30’s living in Atlanta GA. I recently married by BIGGEST Supporter, Promotor and Motivator, Chris. Through marriage, I also became a MOM to Chris’ son Caleb who I’ve help to raise for years now. I’m so thankful for my life, my family and my team. I love the beautiful Atlanta weather and the desire on peoples’ faces down here…it’s a desire to want more! My days are now spent as a Wife, Mom and Entrepreneur, taking care of my family and helping others just like me achieve many of their goals and dreams they may have given up on years ago. People ask me all the time, “Do you do this just for the money?” My answer is “HECK NO!” The FREEDOM you have when you take back those 12 hours of your day you were giving away to your job is PRICELESS!
It’s been a crazy ride on this journey called LIFE…but looking back…I sure wouldn’t have taken any other route!
