Bettina worked as cabin crew for nineteen years…
I absolutely loved my job; I travelled the world, met new people. But when I had my two boys Rocco and Marco who are now 8 and 7, I found my flying career did not suit my lifestyle and family. I was missing important milestones of the boys growing up, unable to take them to nursery or pick them up and I worked most weekends. I was very stressed, and my health began to suffer as I constantly worried about being late for flights and not being able to pick them up from nursery. I knew something had to change but I didn't know what at that time. I wanted to be able to take my boys to school, be there for sports days and weekends, be united as a family and have that work life balance. I wanted to be able to do something that ticked all these boxes and gave me financial freedom. I was using my credit card half-way through the month to fund my non-existent lifestyle as all my wages were going on childcare for my boys.
The airline business changed like most other companies; we had pay cuts and longer shifts with less crew on board. Every time I got my rota I would panic. Who was going to look after the children? Which next milestone would I miss? I was tired from doing night flights, and in general feeling exhausted, as well as sad about being unable to spend time with my boys.
In January 2016 I was introduced to Forever through the products and immediately fell in love with them. I could see the potential in the business opportunity, and I couldn’t wait to get started! I hit my first promotion in five weeks and hit Manager in 2017. I no longer fly, and I work my Forever business around my commitments and my family. I have an incredible team that I work alongside. We all have very different backgrounds and I have made fantastic friendships as well as a global business - all of which I run from the kitchen table!
Forever has given me so much already; a full-time income working part-time hours, personal growth and time freedom. The most rewarding part is seeing my team develop and seeing each of them evolve individually whilst helping them achieve their goals and dreams. We have a real bond between us and everyone supports each other.
It is my 6th year anniversary this year and I am more excited about Forever than ever before. My team saw the biggest growth last year. The travel industry has been hugely impacted with everything that’s happened over the last two years and if I had still been in that industry now, I dread to think what situation we would be in.
Before Forever I had no real structure, my life was determined by a roster that changed weekly. I now have control of my life; I take the boys to school, pick them up, take them to clubs and am there every weekend. Forever has allowed me to be there for my boys unconditionally. I absolutely love what I do and wouldn’t change it for the world!
