I have always been on the lookout for something that I could do to help my family that did not completely take me away from them. With six beautiful kids my time is valuable to me. They need me to be there for them. They are only little for a short time. Working hard and being committed to my faith and my family is my top priority. Dove Chocolate Discoveries allows me to continue to be there, while doing something that I really enjoy. With dove I can work around my busy family schedule and help support my family.
I turned my passion for chocolate into a business and life has never been sweeter! I started to have something fun to do and get out of the house. I never dreamed that it would change me as a person. In the first six months I learned more about myself and began to grow in every area of my life. This part time job turned into an opportunity to help others with their lives and help them grow. For my customers, I learned how to help them enjoy chocolate and not feel guilty while meeting their needs as well. Best Job ever!
Why did you join THE COCOA EXCHANGE?I was looking for a way to suppliment my families income and spend some time out of the house. I am a mother to 6 wonderful children. Two of them are 1 year old boys, so my life is pretty busy most of the time. I needed to be my own boss and have the flexibility to be there for my kids when they needed me. DCD was a perfect fit. I can set my own schedule, have fun, meet new people, eat chocolate, and earn extra money.
If you were a TCE product, what would you be? Why?The White Chocolate Raspberry Vinagrette. A little sweet and spicy at the same time.
What was the most fun you ever had at a Experience?When people ask me about my business it is always fun. They can not believe it is so simple. I had the opportunity to introduce this to a young lady that needed extra income and watch how chocolate changed her life and help her family. Those are the real sweet rewards of this business.
What do you do when you're not holding Tasting Experiences?I am a full time mom and teacher. I home school 3 of my children and that takes a lot of work. We are always running to enrichment classes and sporting activities outside of school. It is a pretty fun life that is full of surprises.
