I Had No Life. I Had No Time for Friends or Family
Like a good little soldier I marched on working longer and LONGER hours, even weekends… Chasing promotion with the dream of climbing the corporate ladder so that 'one day' I could be a General too, giving orders to my own little army with a slightly fatter pay check at the end of the month!
Crazy, but sad...
I used to tell myself, that my family and friends could wait. My career was more important and that one day I would be a successful corporate executive! - Then they would be proud of me and maybe then I would also have some time to see them
There Was Always Too Much "Month Left At The End Of The Money"
Working in London, I made a pretty good salary, however… London is one of the most expensive cities to living in the world. Apartment rent, transport and the general cost of living is crazy. For all of the perks living and working in the capital city, I was always so broke and working too many hours!
I NEVER had the time or money to enjoy myself. My bank account was always around the 20th of every month, forcing me to scrape by eating "beans on toast" until payday
Then I Tried MLM for 4 Gruelling Years
I had bigger dreams than being stuck in an office and figured they had to be a better way, so I went to a network marketing meeting and got very excited watching some guy draw circles and squares on a whiteboard, talking about the "3 gets 3, who get 3, who get 3 plan" that was going to help me become a millionaire!
I got VERY excited...
So I soon quit my job to work my MLM business full-time, working even longer hours… Pitching to everyone - the butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker!… I remember being totally embarrassed dragging my family and friends to hotel meetings!
