We had the good fortune of connecting with Kayla Gray and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kayla, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My main goal after having kids was to be present and not tied to your typical 9 to 5 job. Being available as a mother and a wife is very important to me. Also, the financial freedom and work from home aspect gave me the option to take back control of my life. You either spend your entire working life either building someone else dream or building your own.

What should our readers know about your business?
The best part about what I do for work is teaching others how to make a living working from home and having financial freedom. Helping others start their own businesses has been such a fulfilling experience and one of the main reasons I love doing what I do. I work with Family First Life and our goal is to build an environment of hard working/team oriented individuals so that we can help protect families financially on what could potentially be the worst day of their lives. Getting to where I am today took a lot of work but not a lot of money. Anything worth doing never comes easy! Keeping my head down and reminding myself that I am in the process of changing my life for my family kept me in the grind. All I needed was an opportunity to start my life in the direction I wanted it to go.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
I currently live in Lake Havasu City. When visiting out here you have to check out the Lake and it is home to the original London Bridge! We have an amazing downtown area with the cutest little shops. It is a small town so people often times visit here for lake getaways or dirt sports. We are a common destination for snow birds and family camping vacations. The heat during the summer months could get up to 115 degrees or more! Make sure to bring your swim suit and a good attitude because there are no bad days in Havasu!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would not be where I am today without Jesus with his Grace and Love. My amazing Husband and Family are constantly pushing me and believing in me, even when I lose faith in myself. My Business Partner Keirsha Howard for her encouragement and wisdom bringing me into this industry. My inner circle of God fearing women who always anchor me and remind me that the reason we serve and have patience as women is to aim to love people well.
