We are James & Jennifer Keller from Falls City, Nebraska. We were introduced to Team National in February 2001 and what a journey and life-changing blessing it has been for our entire family!
Our backgrounds are agriculture and we had never been involved with any type of direct sales, but we are very thankful that we did take a look out of courtesy to some good friends. Even though this was something very new for us and we were nervous about getting started, we also decided that our lives were not unfolding the way we wanted them to and it was time to do something different.
James and I were both working and putting in a lot of hours each week, which left our two small boys with daycare more than with us. I wanted to be at home with them! We were living over three hours from all of our family and we wanted to be closer. We came to the realization that the idea of going to school, getting a good education, and working in your chosen profession until retirement, was not moving us towards our financial goals.
We got started sharing Team National with others and in a short 45 days, more than replaced my income! At this point we made some major decisions. The first of those, deciding to move back to Nebraska with all of our family. I have been so blessed to be a stay-at-home mom with our children since! James took a job that had him traveling over 100 days each year--we raise cattle and help farm. Despite our busy schedules, we stayed part-time and consistent with Team National and our income continued to grow. It just didn't make sense for James to continue traveling with his job and in July 1, 2005 he came home. Now our children have two stay-at-home parents!
We are living a very different lifestyle today. We cannot put a dollar figure on the time we spend with each other, our children, and family! The people that we have been so blessed to become friends with and spend time with in this business are priceless! Today, we are able to build our business, help others, and spend time with some of the best people! Our two boys are able to go to a private Christian school of our choice. Our daughter has no idea what daycare is. We have been able to give more to our church and to charity than ever before! We both are able to go on school field trips and attend the kids' activities without worrying about time off from work!
James has been able to go on some incredible hunting trips with Team National friends. He was in the mountains in Colorado elk hunting for nine days and we had more money in the mailbox than he would have made in two months at the job he had! Even better is that he doesn't have to juggle his work schedule and vacation days. We are so excited about the direction the company is heading in! We are also very excited about what the future holds for us all!
