Bernie RaffertyBernie Rafferty global business
My name is Bernie Rafferty.
I am a mum of 4 boys aged 4, 7, 9 and 11.
My background is paediatric nursing, however whilst I was on maternity leave with my 4th child I began looking for something that would enable me to be at home more with my children and avoid having to return to nursing full time.
During this time I became a customer of Forever living products through a good friend of mine. For anyone who doesn’t know this company they are a large reputable American based health and wellness company who specialise in Aloe Vera and bee products which I fell in love with.
I was then introduced to the business opportunity with Forever and I saw the potential to achieve the work life balance I was looking for. I started my home based business and 4 months later I was able to return to nursing on part time hours which allowed me to be at home more with my boys.
I worked the business in the nooks and crannies of my busy life and I now have a global business built with a strong team most of whom are also mums who were also looking for the same work life balance as I was, but I also work with a lot of people who build their forever business along side their full time jobs.
Fast forward 2 years to June 2017 and I was unfortunately diagnosed with stage 3 breast cancer and had to go off on sick leave from nursing as I embarked on a 14 month journey of chemo, surgery, radiotherapy and 12 months of injections for the type of cancer I had.
Throughout my treatment, my Forever business provided me with a welcome distraction and focus through a very tough time and during that time my business grew.
I am now in remission and on an unpaid career break from nursing and Forever is now my sole income moving from my plan B to my plan A.
I’m now enjoying being a full time mum and working on my terms ❤️
