to jump right to Work At Home Resources
I have. FOUR times.
Have you ever QUIT your job?
I’ve had thirty-eight jobs in sixteen years of employment. (Check out the list on the left hand side!) Some lasted only a day (sub sandwich maker), others as long as two years (bookstore manager), but not a single one of them was the right job for me. Not a single one of them kept me interested, challenged, relaxed and HAPPY.
Now I work for myself. I’m my own boss. And the only person who can complain about my work or my attitude or my tardiness is me! And I’ll tell you right now, I don’t do all that much complaining!
Because I like my job! I wake up in the morning excited to go to “work”. Sometimes I even “work” on weekends and holidays, just because I’m so interested in what I’m doing. I even talk to my friends and family about my “work” and it doesn’t make their eyes glaze over with boredom.
Can you say that about your job?
For many years, I believed what everyone else believed…everyone hates their job. I was so depressed! Forced to go to work everyday and obey someone else’s orders, forced to swallow my opinions in order to conform to my employer’s rules, forced to wear a uniform, forced to take a half hour lunch at a prescribed time, forced to work with people I just didn’t like. And for what? To gain a paycheque at the end of the month that was hardly enough to cover my bills.
I was so frustrated!
I knew that I had to find a better way. If I kept going on like that, I would lose myself. I would lose everything that made me so original, so fun, so alive. I would become a corporate robot, grey and dead inside, waiting desperately for 5 o’clock on Fridays.
So I broke free.
I have to say, it didn’t happen right away. I had to endure many more hours of working for other people before I could stand up and shout “I’m outta here!” But while I worked, I could smile to myself, because I had a plan.
I was going to earn my living by WORKING AT HOME.
And I have succeeded!
I am a Work at Home Star!
