My name is Sonia J. Bergeron. I am an entrepreneur, a single mom, and an author. Now, I am a totally addicted blogger. I have always dreamt big! I am always working on something. I have to admit, though, there was a brief period in my life where I had lost hope. I had almost given up. I was on the verge of losing it all, my house, my car, and, most importantly, my sanity.
My children have always been my priority in life, and I swore that I would be the best mother that I could be to them. I wanted to pay for their college, university and really wanted to make sure that they never, EVER missed out on anything. I am very proud of what I have accomplished as a single mother, and now, I want to inspire women all over the world to never give up on their dreams. I didn’t and look where it got me!
Today, I am a marketing director for a chain of restaurants. However, over the past 17 years, I ran my marketing firm specialized in the restaurant industry.
Managing my own business was pretty draining at times. I never knew when new contracts would be coming in, and worst, I never knew if my clients would pay me on time. It worried me a lot, I must admit. Not having a ”steady” income got very stressful, believe me!
I am also an author. I have written two books. My first is an autobiography. It was something that I needed to do to enable myself to move forward and let go of my past. Writing a book was a long-life dream of mine. It became a project and a personal challenge, and then, it became a reality! It’s currently being sold on Amazon. You can check it out here if you wish.
My second book is a self-help book. I wrote it in French and am in the process of translating it into English. The reason behind writing it is a long story. If you are interested, you can take a peek at it over here.
Now, along with all of the stuff that I just mentioned, I help other people build their online business through this very website.
I know that many people would love to run their own online business but have no idea where to start. Well, here, on my website, I have it all, and I am so proud of myself for actually moving forward with this project. Yes, of course, there were times that I wanted to give up, but that has never been an option for me. I’m a fighter, and when I want to achieve something, I always do. I’m just motivated like that!
I started a little over four years ago, part-time. I took the online classes with Wealthy Affiliate and finished them in one week. They taught me how to build a website from A to Z. I worked really hard, and now, all of my hard work is paying off. I am currently ”revamping” my website and adding a few new things, as you have probably noticed.
Why An Online Business?
With all of this being said, being a single parent is difficult. Time is precious to me and time isn’t something that I have had much of in the past because of all of the hours that I needed to put into my marketing business to make it successful. That is why, over 8 years ago, I started looking into starting a business that would bring in residual income. You know, income that comes in every month, over and over? I know, that sounds too good to be true, but trust me, it does exist!
Building an honest home business back in those days would have permitted me to have more time to spend with my children and would have taken so much stress away from me. But, that’s all in the past now. Moving forward!
How My Life Changed In Such A Short Period Of Time
I am so grateful for having taken this online class; you have no idea! I came across it while I was searching for ways to make extra money online. I was going to invest in Binary Options! Please don’t do it, by the way! I lost $350 in a matter of an hour. I never thought in a million years that I would be able to build a website. I wasn’t at all a ”website person”. I was a ”marketing person”! So, I decided that I had nothing to lose by trying it out. It was FREE to join, and by participating, I was going to get two free websites. That was a deal within itself.
I had no idea as to what I was getting myself into by clicking that ”sign up” button. But today, I am so very happy that I did.
Now, I offer my own online course on how to build websites! I love my life.
