I actually quite like change, in fact I'd say I welcome change! Maybe its the thrill of the unknown, maybe I like putting myself in positions of uncertainty. Maybe its not at all healthy for me but I do it anyway.
There have been so many changes during my life so far and still it continues. Rather like the world evolving with each turn so my life moves and changes. My most recent changes have been the move to self employment after years of working for other people. Its a massive transformation for me and I have embraced it like a long lost lover, holding it close and examining it in detail to ensure I miss nothing!
After qualifying as a nurse and working in both NHS and private hospitals I then jumped sectors and went to work for local government Cheap Oakley Sunglasses. Finally fed up with all the bureaucracy and red tape I went to work in the charity sector only to find myself made redundant twice, thanks to central government cut backs in funding.
There was a defining moment when I realised that £67 a week Job Seekers Allowance was not going to pay my bills. I'm not sure how anyone could realistically manage on this piddling amount of money. I had to do something and hatched a plan to start my own cleaning business.
Cleaning was not something I had ever done as a job and was certainly not in my life plan thats for sure. However when faced with a conundrum such as no money you grab whatever opportunity you can to make ends meet and setting up as a cleaner seemed to me to be the easiest and quickest way to make some cash in the hand real oakley sunglasses.
I decided to start up as an eco cleaner offering clients the opportunity to have their home cleaned with a range of earth and people friendly products. Having worked in education and health services I knew of the rising numbers of children with allergies and asthma and so believed that I could offer an alternative way of cleaning the home so that there were no nasty chemicals hanging around contaminating the air.
Luckily for me I was already an independent distributor for Wikaniko the eco friendly co-operative company and therefore I had access to a range of great eco products. One advert on Netmums brought me my first few customers and from then on a steady stream of new clients has come my way.
Its been a roller coaster of a ride initially as I have tried to juggle my finances and ensure there is food on the table. I shop at Lidils when I can and not Waitrose, I buy essentials not luxuries, I recycle clothes rather than buy new and have found that it is far easier to live on a lot less money than I ever thought possible Wholesale Cheap Oakley Sunglasses.
I have learned that I am in demand, people are paying for ME. I am delivering what people want and still they come asking for more. I am now going to take on staff to deal with the demand and am looking at expanding the business.
Its been a complete and radical change for me...... one moment I was writing 160 page tender documents or delivering training and development to local authorities and charities and the next I am cleaning loos.
One thing is clear though, I'm absolutely loving the change...... its a challenge and I love challenge, its hard physical work, its longer hours for far far less money however I am my own boss, I call the shots, I make the policy and I am the face of the business that I am building.
The Universe has a plan, I'm not sure what it is yet but I feel it will be great for me. So I shall embrace the change and welcome the next phase in this awesome journey.
