How to Turn Your Dream into a REALITY - True Story

I had to share a personal story with you all today.

If you have been following me for awhile you know that I started Wahm Connect in 2010. I actually started it as a hobby to give myself something to do in my free time. A few years before I had been with 2 direct selling companies and saw there was a need online for direct sellers and small business owners to have a place to promote their businesses and allow people around the world to see and learn about all of their amazing products.

Well, much to my surprise my little hobby turned into a full time business. In less than a month I will be celebrating Wahm Connect's 5th anniversary. I have enjoyed every minute of it along the way.

I have been able to work with a HUGE variety of small businesses located all over the world. One thing I find to be #1 when working with small businesses is to build relationships. You cannot look at your customer like a customer. You have to look at that as if you have just made a new friend. Build a relationship with them and learn a bit about each one.

I've done this since the very beginning and I cannot tell you how many wonderful friendships I've made. The funny thing is I've become really good friends with LOTS of them and have never even met them in person. Through networking on facebook I've friended some of them and over the years they've been able to watch my children grow and I've been honored to do the same with them.

Now when I contact them it is on more of a friend level than business level. I love the friendships I've made and at the same time overly excited to see all of their businesses blossom. Some literally started like I did, with a hobby they did in their spare time. They were just hoping to bring in a little money to pay bills so they could stay home with their children. I am fortunate that I was able to help them with their goal a little and now many of those hobbies have turned into full time businesses for them as well.

Yes, you can have a dream but if you do not take the time an effort that dream will never amount to anything and always remain a dream. You have to take the steps to turn that dream into a reality and that is what I and so many others have done.

Also remember not to give up. There will be bumps in the road along the way but you need to stay positive, find a solution and keep right on the road to success.

My husband and I look back from time to time and honestly are still in disbelief to this day on how far Wahm Connect has come.

I have worked with hundreds of companies/business owners in over 10 countries. In the process we also launched our blog so we could share with you are thoughts on products that we've had the honor of trying out. That is where my family comes in. They are my testing crew and help in every aspect of our reviews. They really enjoy it and through the years are blog has become an album for our family. Why you say?? Well I take pictures of my children with many of the items and now we are able to look back at our blog and see how our children have grown over the past 5 years.

I've enjoyed my journey and cannot wait to see where it takes my family and I in the future.

Thank you for being a part of our HOBBY and Journey. We wouldn't be here without all of YOU!!!!
