Well I thought I'd take a different turn with this blog post, and go for something that's a bit more about me than just advice, business and blog posts.
Growing up I was bullied a lot from year 6 through till I left in year 11. I then went to college and took on what I wanted to do and those 5 years were great, made some great friends along the way too.
Throughout my life I was told a lot I wouldn't go far, and I wouldn't be able to fulfil my dreams and goals. Do you know what for a long time I believed them and it held me back a long way for a long time too.
I always said I wanted my own business, my own house by the time I was 30 years old then a family after. However that didn't happen so instead of giving up I moved the goal posts. One thing I will say always be specific when you want something as you may well get what you want but not by the means you want it.
On my Journey...
So taking you on my journey my dad passed away when I was 25 years old and I lost my mum at 29 years old which then meant I became a home owner as well and then I became a single mum at 31 years old then I became a business owner at 35.
So although I became a home owner before I was 30 years old I didn't obtain it how I wanted to. So although it was a good feeling to have my own home and I didn't need to rent it also was a sad time as well as I didn't have my parents. Which is why I said above make sure you be specific with how your going to do it.
What I should've said was I wanted to have enough money to buy my own home by the time is was 30 years old. Instead I inherited my own home, know I don't want to sound ungrateful because I'm really grateful that I've had this opportunity to be in this position however I wish it was under different circumstances.
With all that above said, my life has taken a big turn around and my tunnel has light at the end with the correct path finally showing me the way to go.
In order for me to get that light at the end of the tunnel I've had a lot of work to do on my mindset and realising what I'm worth and that I can achieve my goals that I set myself at 20 years old.
15 years later and I'm finally starting to see where I should be heading and what I should be going and starting to forget about the past where people have put me down and not actually given me enough respect to support me in my decisions.
