Name: Jana Taylor
City: Mobile, Alabama
Main Hustle: Mother to 2 (and one on the way!) and former elementary school teacher.
Side Hustle: After learning a lot about how to change our family’s health, we fell in love with these little bottles called essential oils, lol. We had no idea what we were getting into. I’ve found a way to use my love of teaching to educate others on natural ways of health and wellness. Essential oil products have not only changed our family’s health, but our financial’s too. I love to teach others how to naturally support their bodies with God-given materials. It’s amazing to see the changes made in families.
How did you get started?: My sister-in-law introduced me to oils when our oldest son refused to sleep and was heading into daycare. He lived with ear infections, and I knew we needed some alternatives. We became even more invested in our health when our second son had lots of respiratory issues and horrible eczema. It snowballed from there.
When/where do you work on your Side Hustle?: I’m blessed to be able to work from home. Both my boys attend school—my youngest goes for a half day—so I have the morning hours to work. I don’t really have set hours because I’m here to educate people when and where they need. I’m fortunate this job is allowing me to be home full time with our soon-to-be-born third child.
What are the challenges of your Side Hustle?: That many people think essential oils are a fad. That they are just a hip new item, when really they open the door to such an amazing lifestyle change of health and wellness.
It’s hard to get people to understand that they need to and can be the best advocate for health and empowerment over their own lives.
What are the rewards of your Side Hustle?: Seeing other families be blessed by health and wellness changes. Seeing so many moms taking charge of the health of their family!
Who is your greatest supporter?: My husband for sure! Even in those darkest days of wanting to quit, he shows me what is possible. In fact my entire family, especially my parents, do this! I’m super blessed.
Who/what is your greatest source of inspiration?: I would have to say my kids. They are the reason I choose this lifestyle, and they are the reason I hustle every day to help others.
Have you received recognition for your work?: I have received gifts and trips for rank advancements in my hustle!
What is your dream for your Side Hustle?: To not only have replaced my own income but my husband’s as well. For us to be able to give to others without hesitating because of the blessings we have received. To continue to bless others with this amazing lifestyle.
Do you have any advice for others working on a Side Hustle?:
Keep going, even when it’s tough and people question your journey! You can do it!
