"The biggest benefit of this business is freedom."
"We started our business because we had three goals for our life," says Mike Wilson. "1. Love our lives. 2. Have a family. 3. Have financial options. I became a tennis pro because of my desire to love my life." Mike competed on the international tennis circuit and was head professional of several major clubs in Southern California. Carla was a bookkeeper and worked in retail management. "Even at the $25 or $30 an hour I made at the time, we realized we would never be personally free that way. It was difficult to see how we could start a family without both our incomes. When he looked at the business, Mike was teaching tennis from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. "'What do you want from the business?' I was asked. 'Everything.' 'When do you want it?' 'Yesterday.' We saw that if we make this work it would give us the financial options we desired plus the time to start a family. We didn't even realize back then just how much we would love the business." Mike was also in senior management in the financial world for a few years, and says his business income stayed constant. "The biggest benefit of this business is the personal freedom," says Carla. "Personal freedom to be a work at home husband and wife, to be mother and father for our children."
