Sack the Rat Race – Forever!

I am enthused about my new business that IProduct_adverts_aloe_vera_gels_1_AW_V1_SOCIAL_MEDIA started this year, so I thought it was an ideal time to share my excitement! It has been a great adventure for me, and I’m only in the fourth week of trading!

You may know that I’ve been involved in different businesses over the past 20 years, and a business coach for 14 years now.  My new business allows me to help others to benefit from my experience as I help them to set up their own flexible, home based business.

At the same time, I am recommending fantastic products that have amazing impact on health, wellbeing, and fitness.

How does it work?

When people join my team as a Forever business owner they have access to award winning training and support, I provide mentoring, and they have support from wider team members.

Being a Forever business owner means you have the flexibility to work your own hours, and fit round other commitments. You still have the support of a team, and a business coach to encourage you to define and achieve your goals.

You have the support of a multi-national company, Forever Living, that operates in 158 countries (and growing), is cash rich with an annual turnover of $2.6 billion, £75 million in the UK, as rising year on year.  They’ve been around for 37 years, and have been awarded Gold Investors In People Award, are members of the Direct Selling Association, with award winning training programmes.

They have an excellent rewards system, and I have been told I’ve already earned bonuses!

Forever is the only UK company that is licenced by the Aloe Science Council to supply natural Aloe Vera products.  They have their own Aloe Vera Plantations where they treat their employees well, and have patented the method of storing Aloe Vera to ensure it retains all its minerals and nutrients, naturally. The products are cruelty free.

Who can do it?

There is not an ideal ‘type’ of Forever Business owner, but this is not a get rich quick scheme, and you do need to work for it.

You need to have a positive attitude. There are a lot of sceptics out there that can be really negative about Forever Living and the business model (including some members of my family, until they tried the products and saw the bonuses!).

You need to listen to advice and learn. The training programme and the support of your mentor is a luxury that many entrepreneurs do not have access to.  It’s worth its weight in gold, but you get it when you join my team for no extra cost!

You must have a desire for more, to achieve, to do better than you currently have. This is an opportunity that works brilliantly for those that are hungry for success.  It works well if you want to fit it round your current work, but I think you’ll love it so much you will soon want to bin the day job and the grumpy boss!

What do you have to invest?

I would suggest a time commitment of 10 – 15 hours each week.  I didn’t spend that much time on it to start with but still earned my original investment back in 10 days!

You must be willing to learn new skills. This can be done slowly, when you have the time, but I found that I was so enthusiastic that I was spending an hour every evening on it to learn faster!

You have an option to sign up as a business owner when you buy £100 worth of products. However many new business owners, like me, purchase the ‘Business in a Box’ for £199.75 which gives you a starter box of products, and literature.  You will have access to your own website.

If you feel like you want more in your career, or your current job does not excite you, or if you’re saying to yourself ‘there must be more to life than this’, then it’s time for change, the time is now to take a look at joining me.

How many Readers does it take to make a Writer?

I’ve been writing short stories, business proposals, plays, and marketing content for many years now, but recently dived into the unknown and exciting world of blogging.

It’s been an unquestioned assumption that my work was read, for example my scripts have been produced, by proposals have been won and websites have attracted customers.

However the leap into blogging has awakened my gremlins that suddenly demand the colourful array of information provided by analytics.

The intermittent exploring of customer data has grown to be a constant obsession with measuring my success through readership.

Analytics allow me to discover my readership quantities, and the extent to which they stay interested.

Never before have I questioned my writing abilities until now, where my gremlins began to ask;

Have I earned the right to be a ‘Writer’ because now I can count how many people read my blog?

How many Readers does it take to make a Writer?

Do I ignore my gremlins, and continue to remain in my status as ‘Writer’ judged purely on my ability to create a sensible and occasionally interesting collection of products?

Should my status as ‘Writer’ be judged according to my abilities to achieve the objectives of fee paying customers?

I appreciate my readers, each and every one of them.  I hope at some point I have entertained, provided interest and handed a nugget of knowledge to my readers.

I feel a buzz of encouragement from each reader comment I receive, knowing that my work has been appreciated.

I’m sure a big quantity of readers would massage my ego, concurrent with causing a stream of anxiety from the attack of my gremlins, who will continuously ask if I serve my readers well.

The constant strive to improve means I need my readers, the customers of my craft.

I write to share my ever whirling chaos, that span from the drama enfolding in my head, and the call of knowledgeable golden moments gained from business world experience.  The writing is an outlet for calm, reflection and learning.

Writing is part of me, and the life that I lead. It fuels both my anxieties and ego in an uncompromising parallel of balance. It’s my income, my sanity, my world.

I feel the craft, which means my readers are important and loved, and perhaps only needed in quantity to fuel my ego. I am my own judge and therefore continue to take the status of Writer.
