Who is Jill Wiley?
In a way, I’m probably just like you. I have a loving husband who is so young at heart, he often acts like a “second child.” After college, I was an elementary teacher for several years until my daughter was born, and I became a “stay-at-home” mom. I have a 16-year-old daughter who amazes me every day with her creativity, art, and beauty.
In recent years, I have been on a mission to reduce toxins – whether it is choosing organic food when feasible, using toxin-free cleaning products, or monitoring the skin cleansing and beauty products we use.
I LOVE to create, read, and explore. I enjoy creating online support communities and coaching others in their business. I appreciate making and achieving goals, and definitely want to see gold stars for achieving them! LOL
I am a California girl at heart, having grown up in rural northern California. After marriage, we moved several times for work – from San Diego to San Francisco, Manhattan, Hoboken, and Monmouth Beach, NJ, and finally back to San Diego (well Encinitas, north of San Diego). A former travel blogger, I adore travel and look forward to traveling again when our hectic world slows down a bit.
I’m frugal, because I grew up in a very modest household and understand the value of a hard day’s work. I learned at a young age that I didn’t need a lot of money to be happy. This frugal lifestyle and hard work has helped us to retire from our first business before age 40. Now, we primarily live off of rental income, although my passion for pure essential oils, clean living, and helping others grow their business has turned into an unexpected residual income. We have sworn off accumulating burdensome assets in favor of travel, spending time with friends and family, and nurturing experiences.
