BJDHi, my name is Barbara Dowling.  So glad you stopped by my blog, Barb’s Challenge!

So who am I?  I’m originally from New York and met my husband at Newsday where we both worked.  We ended up in Florida.  I worked for 10 years in banking as Operations Manager and Customer Service Manager.  I moved on and for the last 20 years have been selling insurance mostly to Medicare recipients, until the start of the Affordable Care Act (ObamaCare) when I also started selling to younger folk. My focus has always been serving the customer and helping out in any way I can.

Speaking of helping out, I was a hospice volunteer for 10 years and live a faith based life, supporting my church.

I have a wonderful husband (been married for 43 years as of July 22, 2015) , two fantastic daughters and two adorable granddaughters.  Must also mention my two great sisters and their families too!

My challenge now is to get my online business going so I can enjoy retirement with my wonderful family and friends.  It is my desire that I help a lot of people along the way with the products and services that I offer here at Barb’s Challenge and I especially want to help people start and grow their own online business  so they too can enjoy life to the fullest.

Hope you will stop by often, feeling free to leave a comment or make a suggestion! May God bless you abundantly with health, wealth and happiness!

  1. From the blogroll it look like there were over 350 of us that actually made it this far. I am looking forward to seeing how we progress over the next 3 weeks, especially the part that wants us to write a good post every day. And as for doing a video? still it looks like you are off to a good start here.

      Hi Simon! The blogroll seems to go on forever! Trying to post on as many blogs as possible but it does take time to read and comment with value! This is turning out to be a great group of people! I checked out your site and will return to it often as you provide great information in bite size pieces!

    Very nice blog. I am also looking forward to retirement, and hoping this will enhance my retirement experience. I enjoyed learning about you. I have been married for 44 years, and have two sons, and four grandsons! Can’t wait to see your video.

      Hi Wendi, very grateful for finding the QSC…finally taking action! Using other people’s video’s or curating content from other blogs are things that big sites (like the the Huffington Post!) do! Enjoyed your article on a coaching internet business…left you a comment there!
