Are you willing to learn the ninja tips and tricks of marketing?
I have worked in the corporate sector for almost 13 years and i know how it feels to get out of bed and drag yourself to work. Well, a few of you are lucky who love your job.
I wanted to be a designer – a web and graphics designer….some wrong moves I made, add it with a dash of recession of 2000 and wallah…i had my perfect recipe of career disaster and landed up in call centers and HR and admin jobs.
Hmm, not so creative, trust me…
Take away the brush from an artist and give him a calculator or a spreadsheet to work on…something like that happened to me.
So here is what my life was when i worked with corporates.
– I was super sensitive about my WEEKENDS. I wanted to live my whole week in those two days before I had to drag myself to work again on ‘Just another manic Monday’.
– On these weekends, I wanted to spend most of my money I earned in the those 5 weekdays to get the stress out of my mind.
– I would go to a mall and buy everything I did not need; clothes – when my closet was overflowing with all kinds of clothes; snacks and candies – bad for my health; shoes – just because I needed them but actually I didn’t 🙂
And then comes the dreadful Monday, and I would go back to the same old cycle of the week.
One day I lost that job due to recession of 2009 (hit for the second time by recession…aaargh!!)
and I decided to take the risk.
I will do what I love to do
I will learn to live without my salary
I will survive
So, I made up my mind to sit at home and freelance – what, how, where – I didn’t know but I had decided and I was not turning back.
I got many opportunities to do some freelance work but it paid me very less and I was still not enjoying any of it. I finally decided to use my degree from 15 years ago and start doing some graphic and website designing business.
But the good part was that I learned to design, brushed up my Photoshop skills and more than anything I learnt to handle clients.
I also tried MLM – selling health supplements but the cost of procuring the products, sometimes stocking some, taking people for trainings to the center – it all costed more than I could afford anymore. I soon realized I was buying and consuming these products more than I was selling these, haha, I am sure most of us who have tried MLM understand what I am saying here. Amway, Avon, Tupperware or Herbal Life.
I gave up – sat in my bedroom watching movies and knitting all day ( That made me a crazy knitter, lol). I did that for a year – depending financially on my parents, sister, friends, credit card.
He wanted to sell me an online opportinity for $15. I had no money but I did have credit card and the entreprenuer inside me was so deperate – for money, for a new opportunity that in the next 48 hours I bought the opportunity on my credit card not knowing how I will pay my card (Now remember, I had been without salary for nearly 4 years)
About Frank, I was impressed by his selling and convincing skills. The truth is, he did not sell me anything…he just talked and answered my questions on skype -like a friend would.
I realized that was the art – the art of making relationships
Eventually, in a few months, he was not promoting that online opportunity and had started his own venture. I offered to join his business and..
We have an amazing business partnership, and I am proud of our business here in Canada.
Here is a little gift for you – In celebration of our 6 years business anniversary
Yes I mean it!!
If you can’t blog everyday, you can’t lose weight ?
In other words, if you CAN BLOG EVERYDAY, YOU CAN LOSE WEIGHT 🙂
Read below – 3 Tips how to do both!!
Isn’t it better than putting it aside everyday till you realize you didn’t write a single blog in the past 30 days!
SOMETHING IS BETTER THAN NOTHING
I can tell you lost weight already by reading this blog, lol.
3. Become a sharer – Hmm, now am i talking about sharing food or sharing information on your blog about something that will help people. I am talking about both.
You can make it a habit of sharing your food recipes. yes, when you get into a habit of cooking healthy food, your friends want to know what you are doing to stay healthy. Plus, I personally believe that you drive around your house and look for homeless people and buy them food. If you thinking you have stuff in the fridge which you will not eat but its not stale, donate food to food banks specially after your big parties.
Ok I will stop preaching here !

One day, I and Frank’s Dad decided to buy a bagful of peanuts and crack them. So we sat at the dining table and got started at it.
We must have done this for an hour or so (time just flew past) and amazingly we talked about so many things, good and bad, about people, religion, cultures, traveling and many other topics.
We were not just popping peanuts out of the shell but popping our feelings and sharing our thoughts. It was so much fun. (although cleaning up after wasn’t so much but it was worth the conversation)
Next day Frank joined us and after a few weeks his friend, John who was visiting us decided to participate in peanut therapy.
STRUGGLING WITH A RELATIONSHIP??

You got to try it to believe it !!!
Get a bag of peanuts today and invite your friends, parents, siblings, spouses, lovers and coworkers.
HAPPY PEANUT CRACKING
