Who Are We?
Well hello there! I’m April Dennis. It is so great to connect with you on our journey to a better life! I own Direct Sales Rep Network and Social Coach Marketing, LLC, a Social Media Marketing Agency Registered with the State of Colorado. We are VERIFIED by Facebook and PayPal and have an EIN from the Federal Government. I am a Certified Business Coach. I teach Lady Bosses how to scale their Coaching, Consulting or Direct Sales Business with Support, Systems and Automations so they can have a successful business that they love!
In 1992 I was a 17 year old high school dropout. The constant back and forth between parents and schools had ruined my attendance and grade point average. My parents would fight over paying child support and visitation so we would be shuffled around.
A couple months after I dropped out I was waitressing at a Diner bringing home more money than my dad, I met a guy and my parents encouraged me to get married to get on with my life. LOL. That turned into a 23 year hostage situation disguised as a marriage. Mental Illness is a Bitch.
Coming from a religious household, marriage is forever, and it doesn't help if you are told you will be killed if you leave. I spent those 23 years trying desperately to build an online business to get the hell out of there. It's hard when you are being sabotaged.
During my 23 year marriage that started when I was 17, I raised 3 sons, all of whom have graduated from high school! Yay Me! This was a huge goal in my life, I am 1 of 4 kids and none of us graduated from high school. I watched all 3 of my sons walk across the stage (no easy feat!). When my 3rd son graduated I bawled my eyes out! I had been free from my hostage situation for about 6 months and it hit me that I had done it! I got all 3 kids across that stage AND I was FREE!!!!!!!
That goal I made when I was 27 years old, that as soon as the kids were gone so was I! Knowing that if he killed me then, at least they were adults. I had done it! 9 months before this, my abuser had kicked me out into the streets where I was homeless for 3 months, sleeping in my car. I was determined not to go back. I was almost 40 years old, I owned a house and a Mercedes, yet here I was sleeping on the streets of Denver in a '97 Toyota RAV. I made $30,000 a year waiting tables, and it took 1 mentally ill person to take it all away from me.
So, what do you do when you have lost it all? You keep grinding, just like I had done for 23 years. I met someone online who was also starting their life over after a bad divorce. We started out in a motel room with no possessions, just a bag of clothes and a laptop with a broken screen attached to the TV.
Yep, I started my Marketing Agency on a laptop with a broken screen attached to a TV in A MOTEL ROOM!
6 years later and I have a successful 5 figure a month Agency. I am Registered with the State of Colorado, VERIFIED by Facebook and PayPal and have an EIN from the Federal Government. And I am still with the same guy. He is AMAZING! It is so different building a business when someone is supporting you every step of the way. He has pushed me to be the person I was always supposed to be. (A Bad Ass Business Bitch!)
I struggled for years trying to make money online because someone was sabotaging me. I know that there are a lot of women out there that are stuck at home, raising kids, trying to make a living or trying to make it out alive. You can make money online. You can support yourself and your kids. It takes a lot of hard work and determination, but you can do it. Even if it takes you 20 years! Success feels amazing and I want to pass that feeling on to as many women business owners as I can! Are you ready to take your business to the next level? You can do this! I can help!
