Encouraging and teaching others how to find a new career.
It’s hard to say when I became an entrepreneur. My parents would probably have told you it was when I was 10 and decided I could make additional spending money by babysitting younger kids in our neighborhood. By the time I could drive (yes, we could get a license at 14 way back then) and go beyond “our neighborhood” parents were calling me weeks in advance to book my services. The calls and pay increased when word spread that I made myself useful after story time and putting their children to bed. Instead of watching TV, I would ask if there were things I could do to help them out like a load of laundry, folding clothes or even ironing (back in the day when people actually ironed).
After college, teaching was what I thought I was supposed to do. Though it was fun to work with young people who were eager to learn, I found myself in a temporary job every summer just to pay the bills.
When more college or a career move became inevitable, I chose to become a part of the business world. After all, I had been teaching business courses. How hard could it be? So I set out to learn all I could about insurance (one of my summer jobs was working in an insurance office) and eventually went into business for myself.
Fast forward 30 years, marriage, a beautiful daughter and 4 business ventures later, I know being in control of my time is what’s important now. Though days of teaching English, Business, and even Skydiving are behind me, I still enjoy helping others who want to learn.
There are probably a lot of retirees or soon-to-be retirees out there looking for a second or part-time career, some who have lost their first career due to down-sizing, or even young people who are already tired of the 8-5 (which is actually, in most cases now, 7-7). Maybe you are a caregiver for a parent or spouse and would like to do something very part-time working from home. If you have spent years in the same profession, believe me, there are people who want to know what you know and are willing to pay you for it.
Listening, learning and sharing ideas can be life changing. It has been for me. If you are someone who wants that too and are interested in working with me, just fill in your contact information.
