I joined this amazing business in 2010. At this time I was working remotely, juggling full time self-employment and networking to find clients to use my business services, plus bringing up two children.
For the beginning of this journey, I was concentrating on building the network as I didn’t have enough money to travel, though I used the membership to get wholesale prices for airfares and hotels when I was networking in Europe.
After completing the D.I.S.C profiling at our church I was encouraged to do a coaching course with the aim to be a Business Coach. I can see now I should have just stayed focused with my business, gone onto their training events and followed their system and been more focused. But, I was resentful at this time! Other people were able to afford to travel, always posting pictures of where they had been and I felt discouraged and left the company.
I joined again in 2015 and went on two lovely vacations, I went to Dublin with my daughter and visited The Guinness Store House Tour and stayed at The Marker Hotel, Stayed at the Cava Spada Luxury Resort and Spa with my son in Chania, Crete. I went to some training too – in Belgrave, Rome and Berlin.
I went completely on my own to Rome and Berlin, travelled alone on the flights, got Uber taxis in the countries to the hotel and met up with other representatives from different teams during my stay.
I got another client for my Online Marketing work and then had to take a job in full time employment. I work in Lewes and it’s a lovely town and actually, I do enjoy this work because I work in a good supportive team and my manager can see my good points and encourages me to be my best and gives me variety with the tasks so I don’t get bored. However retirement is looming.
Life has past by fast and I only have nine years left in the corporate world! This Coronavirus 19 is a bit of a wake up call to focus more on sharing this opportunity with others in the same situation who would be interested in being part of a culture with positive energy and good team spirit working towards seeing everyone achieves.
We are all born into a system, we work hard at school, try to get the grades, get a good job and work hard, hope for pay rises. But we have to cut our coat according to our cloth. The same with where we live, renting is so expensive these days and meeting the criteria to rent has changed. Most good jobs these days are in other locations and time is spent travelling so it is difficult to find a part-time job that fits in with the day job as we just don’t have the time.
I have always had a desire to succeed and achieve my dreams. I’ve pushed my children to work hard and they are both doing well in their chosen occupations.
I enjoy encouraging and helping others to see their potential and succeed to change their lives for the better!!
