Their youngest child, Emma, was 7- months-old and the eldest, Adam, was 3-years-old. In her eyes, they had it all: a picture-perfect family, a beautiful home, and a thriving relationship. To Jenna, life was pure bliss. However, seemingly out of the blue, John asked Jenna to take the kids and move out. He declared that he was tired of paying 80% of the bills and having Jenna spend his money on things he considered to be frivolous purchases. He felt used, even though Jenna tried to be frugal with their budget. Jenna was infuriated, flabbergasted, and heartbroken. She had invested 4 years in a relationship that was destined to go nowhere. She cried for days and didn’t know where to go. Being a waitress, she knew that she couldn’t afford an apartment on her income alone. She found herself between a rock and a hard place. Though Jenna hated asking others for help, she knew she needed to reach out to someone. She hesitantly called her parents and explained exactly what was happening. Jenna didn’t think her parents would offer a hand. But to her surprise, her parents happily offered Jenna and her children their guest bedroom. After a few nights in her parent’s guestroom, Jenna came to a tough realization. “I’ll never be able to afford my own place on a waitress’ salary,” 3 Achieving the Unachievable – Short Story she thought to herself. So, she decided to take the leap and enroll full-time in a community college. Jenna enrolled in a paralegal studies course which would allow her to earn a certificate within 12 months and start off at an hourly wage of $20. She was currently earning about $1,500 per month, but by completing this course, she would more than double her income. Though she knew it would be tough, Jenna decided to attend school full- time and concurrently work full-time. She took on a 4:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. shift at the diner and began school at 9:00 a.m. Her mother dropped Emma and Adam off at the daycare center in the mornings and Jenna picked her children up immediately after school. Jenna completed school assignments and spent time with her children until she was due back at the diner for the evening shift at 5:30 p.m. Her family watched the children until Jenna’s shift ended at 10:30 p.m. It was tough for Jenna, barely spending any time with her children throughout the week, but she understood that the situation was only temporary. Her schedule was certainly hectic. But over the months, she grew accustomed to the high-velocity schedule of her new life. Jenna was a strong woman, but at times she secretly cried at night because she missed her picture-perfect life. Jenna felt ashamed to still be “mooching” off of her parents as a 26-year- old woman. 4 Achieving the Unachievable – Short Story But when she hit the bottom, she realized that the only people that stood by her side were her parents. She considered this realization to be worthy of all her troubles. Throughout the next year, Jenna continued to go to school and maintain her full-time work schedule. Meanwhile, her heart was healing rather quickly. John tried to rekindle the romance many times. Jenna’s heart, though, had no place left for him. She realized that she didn’t need John to provide for her family. And, if he considered diapers for his daughter and clothes for his son “frivolous purchases,” then he wasn’t the type of man she needed in her life. Before she knew it, a year had passed. Jenna earned her certificate in paralegal studies and soon found a job at one of the city’s most prestigious law firms. Living with her parents and maintaining a full-time work schedule allowed Jenna to build up a hefty savings account of $10,000 while working as a waitress. Now more than ever, she was thankful for her parents’ kindness. She continued to live with her parents for several months after starting her new position. She decided to put all of her savings toward a down payment on a three bedroom home for her family. As Jenna reflected on her life over the past year, she smiled in amazement of her strength. She had achieved what many others consider to be unachievable. Just 12-months ago, Jenna had been a heartbroken, low-wage waitress that lived in her parents’ guestroom with her two children. But at the end of 5 Achieving the Unachievable – Short Story her journey, Jenna became a college-educated paralegal, a happy single mother, and a homeowner. 6 Achieving the Unachievable – Short Story Achieving the Unachievable Personal Reflection Many of us have found ourselves in a difficult situation similar to the one that Jenna faced. Jenna had two choices: Sulk in her misery and take no steps toward overcoming her challenges Walk bravely toward the storm Jenna chose the latter and actively pursued a solution and changed her life around in a matter of months. We can all emulate Jenna’s bravery and persistence. Her strength was not superhuman; she was simply determined. Nothing could deter her from her goal of financial independence. Whether you realize it or not, at this very moment, this strength is inside of you. With good motivation, such as providing for your family, and the unstoppable will to succeed, you can achieve anything your heart desires. Success depends upon your mindset. If you feel sorry for yourself and dread going into work or school every day, you simply will not succeed. You need to crave success in order to attain it. Nothing worthwhile comes easily. A Bachelor’s degree won’t fall onto your doorstep merely because you wish to graduate from college. In order to attain a Bachelor’s degree, you must attend school, pass your classes, and maintain a fair GPA. 7 Achieving the Unachievable – Short Story Remember: Life will not stop to accommodate your rigorous schedule, it’s up to you to accommodate all of your responsibilities into your daily life.

According to Sylvie Charrier, a freelancer, and owner of the popular website www.InYourPJs.com, the answer is yes! “I went from being completely broke, to running a company that is doing extremely well, and all from my very own home office!“, Sylvie Charrier tells us. Why most people struggle According to Sylvie Charrier, there's a reason why so many people struggle with finding jobs despite so much work being offered to them today... “Believe me, there are real home-based jobs, but what most of the work at home sites "forget" to tell you is that it takes work to get work. Finding a telecommuting job can be a full-time job in itself, but if you don't have all the facts, you will be spinning your wheels for years trying to get work.” How Sylvie Charrier conquered needing to provide for her family as a single mother with a unique approach “This program will teach you HOW to market yourself to prospective employers. You NEED to know what kinds of ads and emails get the attention of the human resource and hiring managers. Learn how to approach employers armed with every piece of infor- mation about them, before you send an email, place an ad, or call their hiring depart- ment!” Sylvie Charriet tells us. Sylvie Charriet focuses on the unique approach of knowing how to put together work-at- home opportunities to create a great future for her family. Was it worth it? “To be honest, I make more money from home than I ever could have made working in an office. I currently earn more than if I were a highly paid manager in a big company! And yes, I do work in my pajamas every day, and I spend a lot of time with my children.” And Sylvie Charriet is not alone. There are many success stories that you can read on his/her website, www.InYourPJs.com that should, at the very least, inspire you to give it a try too. 9 Achieving the Unachievable – Short Story To learn more about Sylvie Charriet’s solution, and his/her story, along with dozens of other stories from people who have also tried this solution, visit www.InYourPJs.com.
