Should I ditch my job?
When I read articles related to this topic, I realise the chance I have to have a digital business!
When I was reading a report by the BBC dotcom and their sound advice I realise that because I could never have done corporate per se, it does not mean I am not corporate material and I can not live a corporate life!
What does it mean then?
It means that I am at least 2 steps ahead of corporate!
I am outsmarting the corporate world in which the majority of people work.
I don’t have to do anything if I am ‘unemployed’ because I am and have always been psychologically unemployable. Too perfectionist to work for others too.
When I did work in corporate…
I invested myself in the work, the task on hand…
I recall once we hired a temping person to come in and help, somehow she was put into my office – we had walls and doors back then – luxury I know. I recall this being a nuisance for I had my afternoon naps down to a tee! There was a big plant in front of my desk and when you opened the door it made a sound so I would awaken and my fingers would hit the big calculator buttons and the sound of the numbers printing on the paper would magically appear and no one would think I was asleep. I did this as the work was so boring and I finished it so fast that the rest of the time I would try and read my books (no internet back then!). So I felt no guilt as the work was done and I felt like I owned the company so proud and faithful to the company I worked for – ridiculous but my integrity was intact!
So in she came and it was of course very difficult to break this habit…
She was herself extremely lazy and never lifted a finger… On her third day they came in to renew her contract already… She said no thank you and still not lifting a finger… She looked at me and said ‘You see the secret is to be really bad the first 2 days, start actually doing some work on the third day and be brilliant and efficient the last 2 days of the week – during your final time at this company, that way you can ask for an increase in salary from the temping agency!’ Sure enough the next week she was there and had gone from 30 french francs to 55 fr. I was gobsmacked to say the least and my own contract was coming up for renewal… I put her plan into action – putting all my integrity aside and bam my own contract had 2 new clauses – it was shorter and I was paid a lot more!
I did this temping lark for some time and earned good money but the satisfaction of going off every so often to great locations with my husband was not so fulfilling as that…
Fast forward 30 years!
I found that my life as a mother was as fulfilling as anyone could want but we really did need more income. Should you want details there are plenty of other articles I have written on this site 😉 feel free to look around and get to know why etc.. I had been in MLM and really got us into financial dire straights so needed to get us out of them too…
To cut a long story short I have had the good fortune to be an online entrepreneur to get my own business up and running whilst learning the intricacies of marketing – a bit like going to night school whilst having a job, if you will! And so rewarding, fulfilling and life changing!
Opportunity knocks For those who look…
So what does this mean to you?
If you should be sick of your boss, wanting to quit, getting your health back, gaining some qualifications, if you are in-between jobs (as they say now) and having fun times doing your CV, networking, volunteering or even trying some consulting work “Consulting for any firm or contact is better than doing nothing, whether it’s making a business plan for your brother-in-law’s tattoo shop or preparing tax returns for a friend” “Write it on your CV and on LinkedIn to show that you are in the driving seat of your career.”
Just to read that is so much less exciting to me than:
“you started on a journey with an incredible community of entrepreneurs that has the potential to help you become successful in so many ways. You now have at your fingertips, a world-class marketing platform, superior training, and a patient support team to assist you.
Which one gets your gut moving? One scares me senseless and the other well gives me a rush of adrenaline!
I want to invite you to share these feelings with me, have them as your own and you can also test drive the system, meet the community… Have a digital life of your own

My why is to bring joy and honour to you, so that you may shine and know you are worthy of peace.
Having gone from a violent relationship (27 years) to single Mum with 4 children, I worked hard. The mind is everything and without a good mindset you can do nothing of value.
I now run my own business, have my own workshops, create my own products and live the life I make for myself. It really all took shape when I met Jay and Stuart. Twas a blessing that I would wish on every single person who is in any violence.
