Lauren was a young mother of two small children; Riley and Sienna. Her husband Jake worked in the city supermarket as a Cashier, and had to work until the wee hours in the morning. They were living in a rented house; for which the rent was rather high, and the cost of living was soaring when it came to the children’s education, clothing, food, and so on.
However, they provided the children with their basic needs, and to their relief the children were studying well.
Most worrying was paying the rent; as the landlord had warned them on several occasions that if they did not pay the rent on time, they may have to vacate the house.
He threatened them that all the goods will be thrown out of the house, if the rent arrears were not paid.
Lauren’s best friend Aubrey was aware of what they were going through, and introduced her to a friend who worked at a beauty salon. Lauren got a job at the salon and was happy as she was contributing to the family’s expenses.
The owner of the hair-salon Barbara realized that Lauren had talent, and it would be better for her to start her own beauty salon. Lauren was very inspired of her boss’ kind words.
With Barbara’s assistance, Lauren set up a small salon in a section of their rented house, with the permission of the landlord.
Lauren earnestly made a genuine effort to make her clients more beautiful. She worked day and night to build up a good customer base.
With a steady income, over a period of two years, Lauren was able to save up a reasonable sum of money to be paid as an initial payment to buy a house.
Jake’s salary too had increased, so they applied for a loan, and to their delight it was approved.
Lauren and Jake bought a lovely little home closer to the countryside. It had a beautiful yard and the children; Riley and Sienna were happy about their new home; which was their very own home.
Lauren continued to work hard at her salon, and her salon was gaining popularity, she had built up a regular customer base, which brought in a very good income. Her inspiration really pushed her to a new limit she never thought she never thought possible.
Lauren and Jake stabilized their finances one step at a time, and gradually became fairly rich, enabling them to live a comfortable life, in their very own home.
