How did I earn the name The Fiery Grandma?

You see during my tumultuous journey I found myself stressed out to the max. I had allowed my career and business aspirations to consume my life. My health suffered and I nearly died because of it. Sound familiar? I made ONE decision to shed the weight I had gained over the previous ten years for good. I was sick and tired of the diet roller coaster, I knew something had to change or I wouldn’t get another chance. After taking off more than 70 pounds I discovered another problem…I missed the ONE thing I’m passionate about besides healthy weight loss and that is building winning customer relationships.

I realized I had come a long way from the old, frumpy, unhappy, and tired grandma of just a few months earlier.

The nickname The Fiery Grandma came to stick because my fiery passion for life had returned.

No matter the type of business you are in, I can show you how to strengthen your business relationships to build a solid customer base. I can show you how you too can build long term customer relationships that provide repetitive business. You’ll discover what I’m using to create an ongoing income for my family, to have more FUN again so you can find your purpose and passion for life again.

My name is Carla J Gardiner, otherwise known as The Fiery Grandma.

Thank you for taking the time out of your busy schedule to get to know me a little better. Nothing says slimy like receiving an email from some unknown stranger trying to sell you something, right?

Here’s a peek inside my personal and professional life. It may be crazy, wild, and hectic…but, it’s my life and I’m pulling back the curtain and sharing the real Carla with you today.

Personal History

I have been happily married to my husband, Rich since 1979. Rich retired after working 40 years in a local lumber mill. Now he has taken on the title of “Mr. Mom” taking care of the household duties while I bring home the bacon. We have two grown children and eight wonderful grandchildren.

Our daughter Jeanette has been married since 2002 to her husband Nathan. Nathan is an entrepreneur serving in the consulting realm while Jeanette is a stay-at-home mom, homeschooling, and raising up our four rambunctious grandchildren.

Our son Daniel and wife, Larissa has been married since 2015 and are both postal workers, delivering our mail via USPS. They have four great kids.

They all are the apples of our eye and my WHY for building a business and working at home.

Professional background

I am a tenacious woman working to guide women over 50 to get healthy, lose weight naturally using a holistic approach with real foods, customized supplements, and essential oils. I’ve refused to accept the status quo of the health and wellness industries. Your health is not about dollars and cents, it’s about living your best life vibrantly without medications and sickness.

I am an ex-banker who knew the corporate world wasn’t for me, a self-starter who received my education from the “school of hard knocks”.

I currently own and operate Bullseye Auto Transport, a brokerage and dispatch center working from home since 2005. As any successful business owner does, I started my Plan B, in 2010. I’ve always loved learning. Many of my friends call it a habit, I call it fun. The more I learn the more I want to learn and share.
