Who is Alexandria Sparks

Alexandria Sparks

So who is Alexandria Sparks? Well before I get into telling you who I am let me first say welcome and thank you for stopping by! Alright that’s out of the way let’s get started!

 

I was born and raised in a small town called Burlington, Ia, we lived right on the Mississippi! Alexandria Sparks I lived with my parents (Albert and Sara) and my sister Christina. Growing up I was always curious about how things worked and I would often help my father do yard work and work around the house. I think my father enjoyed it too since he didn’t have a son (my brother passed 4 days after he was born he would have been a year older than me). I would always pick up my fathers tools and try to find something to fix!

As I grew older I started exploring instruments..ready here we go..I played the violin, piano, cello and drums! Every year our town has the Spring String Fling where all the students from grade school to highschool that played string instruments would have a huge concert at the Memorial Auditorium in downtown Burlington! Here’s a picture of my sister and I at the concert!! The good ole days!! Alexandria Sparks

 

The cello didn’t work out nor did anything else! I played the drums the longest out of all my instruments and can still hold a beat!!

I was all over the place with what I wanted to do with my life..all I knew is I wanted to be great at whatever it was! I ended up moving away to college because that’s what everyone was suppose to do right?  That’s all I knew and my parents preached to me that I needed to go to college to have the skills that I needed to get a career! So I went to school and majored in psychology..honestly because it was easy and I really didn’t want to be there! I partied more often then studied and it didn’t help that my school was know as the “party college”! Me and my roomates got a house on campus together and had the best times of our lives there!!

 

After all that partying can you believe I actually graduated? Yeah I was stunned too! It was time for me to find a career! It seemed like the fun had just been ripped from me. Now that I was done with college I looked all over for a decent job in Chicago and I failed miserably! I couldn’t find anything that I really wanted to do, and what it would come down to was me working a job that didn’t have anything to do with my degree.  So I knew I needed to do something and if I wanted to make it in Chicago I needed something that paid very well! So I found out that I could get my RN in 2 years at a local college in the same town of the University that I graduated from. I knew that nursing would give me a career and I could make decent money! I did it I became an LPN the first year and then an RN the second! I passed my boards on the first try (Wooo!! That was the hardest test I have ever taken!)

I went to interview for a job at a hospital in Chicago and bam!! they hired me on the spot!! I was ready to go!! I moved to Chicago happy as could be and started my career as an RN! All was going well and I enjoyed working as an RN because I always had a passion to help others, but something was missing. I still felt like there was something out there that I was meant to do. I had that itch!!!!

Two years had gone by and I became pregnant with my daughter Zoe! I had met her father back in college and moved to Chicago with him. We were excited and scared at the same time. We were still young and we weren’t married. We did pretty well our first two years, but we just couldn’t make our relationship work and I became a single mom!  At that point I was alone and my life had been flipped upside down. I was in a city away from my family and now it was just me and my daughter! I thank God for this time though.. because of it, I started going back to church. My father is a baptist minister so yes I’m a PK (preachers kid) who strayed, but found my way back! Now I have an awesome church family here that I love!

I once again thought in order for me to move up the corporate ladder I needed to get more education, so I went on to get a double masters in nursing and healthcare administration. I was blessed again right before graduating with a promotion into management so my plan worked!

I continued to work as a nurse, but even still the bills were piling up and I needed an extra income. I started looking around on the internet for something I could do from home to supplement the income that I used to have from my daughter’s father being in the home. I came across a little thing that allowed me to work exclusively online and make cash fast!! I loved it!! I was addicted! It was at that point when I fell in love with Internet Marketing!!! I thought to myself…man if I would have known about this I would have never invested so much into my education, but I believe everything happens for a reason. Now I’m here to tell others about what I have found! Now don’t get me wrong I think going to college is great if you truly want to work in the field you are getting your education in. It is so important to do what you love in life, you can make it work if you truly want to!

Finally I had found something I could do from my computer and I didn’t have to go out and have those silly home parties. I had been there and done that ..you know the lotions and potions for a small little commission..not fun!

I will never forget making my first sale online I was soooo geeked!! I felt like I won a million bucks even though it was just $20!! It was confirmation that this really works!! It was confirmation that with a little bit of work and patience I could  build a business online!!

It was nothing but the grace of God that put the right business  in front of me! I give him the glory for everything!

Today I am coaching and showing others exactly how they can go from average to AWESOME!! By working from the comfort of their home!!! I would love to help YOU!

 

Start your journey today!

Alex...so this is your story?  Beautiful, heart warming, inspiring. we've chatted a few times here and there when you first got started...or maybe it was when I first got started; nevertheless I enjoyed you then and I am equally, if not more  impressed by you now.. You've come a long way...I understand the struggle...being a single parent and having to gig here and there...just to keep it moving and provide the best.  You can do this girl, I did.  My son is now graduated from college and on his own!....I say that with baited breath..lol   .the point is...you found your calling and you answered it! I tried  my hand at this but despite the fact that I love to write and I know I can write, it just didn't work for me... I wish you continued success and always know that you can make it happen...you have to :-))

Regards,

Charlotte Williams
