WHO IS CARLA J GARDINER?

New Headshot Blue Orange 200

MY NAME IS CARLA J GARDINER, OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE FIERY GRANDMA.

Thank you for stopping by to get to know me a little better. Here’s a little peek inside my personal and professional life. It’s crazy, wild and hectic…but, that’s my life. I’m pulling back the curtain to share the real Carla with you today.

Personal History

I have been married to my husband, Rich since 1979. Rich retired after working 40 years in a local lumber mill. Now he holds the title of “Mr. Mom” taking care of the household duties, and he really does a GREAT job; while I work on our business.

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

OUR KIDS AND GRANDKIDS ARE THE “APPLE OF MY EYE”

“WHY” I  WORK AT HOME BUILDING A BUSINESS

Professional background

As an ex-banker I couldn’t see eye to eye with the corporate world so I became an entrepreneur. Unable to adjust to the slow-paced world of “no one cares, just getting by and no one matters” mentality of most employers and supervisors in the workforce the best education I received was from the “School of Hard Knocks”.

I own and operate Bullseye Auto Transport, a brokerage and dispatch center and have been working from home since 2005. I started my Plan B, CarlaJGardiner.com in 2010. During the past fifteen years I’ve paid my dues learning how to serve others using Network Marketing to build my business and income. My belief in equality for all, respecting my elders, using the manners I was taught and following the rules has formed the bold businesswoman I am today. 

My Core Values

I’ve created this short video so you can hear my voice as I speak from my heart.

WHY I STARTED CARLAJGARDINER.COM

When the economy started to plummet in 2007 my auto transport business income took a dive. Scared, frustrated and unsure of how we would replace that income I turned to the internet looking for answers. After spending thousands of dollars, countless hours and overcoming many frustrations I finally found the missing piece of my puzzle, I became a business coach.

As a woman over 50 I began leading women to gain more confidence to look good, feel good and do good. Sharing how to update outdated wardrobes using trendy, fashionable $5 jewelry is part of the formula to look good. I learned that in order to gain confidence you must feel good as well. Sharing that information opened up a new door to help so many other women to reclaim their health, too.

Why the nickname “The Fiery Grandma”?

During my journey I found myself stressed out. I had allowed my career and business aspirations to consume my life. My health suffered because of it.

ONE decision … to shed the weight I had gained over the previous ten years changed my life. I was sick and tired of the diet roller coaster I knew something had to change or there wouldn’t be another chance. After taking off more than 65 pounds and keeping it off the fire in my gut, my passion for life returned. I discovered another problem…replacing my wardrobe would be costly; however, updating the outdated wardrobe of yesteryear could be possible using $5 jewelry that is fun, fashionable and affordable.

My journey had brought me a long way from the old, frumpy, unhappy and tired grandma of just a few months earlier. It took more than losing the weight, it took regaining my health, learning how to eat real food, get the right amount of rest and sleep to regain my confidence to look good AND feel good so I could do good for others.

Because of these secrets my health is the best it’s ever been. The fire in my gut burns with passion to share with others the truths I have learned. My zest for life has returned, my confidence is high, I look better than twenty years ago, my energy is that of a thirty-year old again and I’m having way more FUN.

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

What does this mean for you?

You can learn how to regain your energy, like when you were in your thirties. You can get off that diet roller coaster for good and lose weight. 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.

  • You who have already retired, there’s a place for you, too. You will recapture a reason to get up out of bed in the morning, help your friends and family to do the same, gain new friends, get off the couch and have fun daily…
