About Lori:

How long have you been in business?  I have been in business since 1997, but here's an interesting fact. I have been a sah/wah mom for 20+ years. I am also a homeschooling mom.

How long have you been a Christian & share a little about your faith: I believe that when God gives us a vision or a dream, it is up to us to follow in His path and Never Give Up! I believe that God will always provide or show you a way to do whatever needs to be done. "but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:31

How has your faith in God inspired and helped grow your business?  "Be still and know that I am God." Psalm 46:10. God is always inspiring me. I have chosen to listen to what God's plan for my life is. It is a walk in faith...sometimes climbing the mountain and other times, reaching the top of the mountain. Faith is like driving in the fog; you don't always know what's around the next corner, but you still keep on going. When I first started my business, I had a wonderful Christian friend tell me that I was going to be great as a direct sales company. Hmmm, no, not really - no way! She continued to pray that I would "listen" to God and glorify Him. After many tests and almost quitting my business, God showed me the way and YES, we are a direct sales company now. Still learning and following in His path. Every day is a walk through faith. For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

What advice do you have for other moms thinking about starting their own business? Listen to your heart. Start everyday with God, let Him guide you and lead you. He will show you the way and provide you with all the answers that you are seeking providing that you are doing His will. Never, ever give up! Learn from other business women, even those that may seem like "your competition". Make mistakes, this is how you will learn and grow. Do not be afraid to fail...just keep trying! If something doesn't work one way, try another and keep pushing forward.

What special offers will you offer to moms visiting from ReallyWorkingFromHome.com?
I would love to give you 10% off any order from Prim 'n Purdy...let me know that you found me here.
Can moms from ReallyWorkingFromHome.com contact you for advice about starting their own business? You bet...I am always willing to support and help other moms.
