Making KIDS Work

What is life like when you have people doing things for you all the time? From the moment you are born, you are changed, bathed, creamed. Later, you get dressed, carried and pushed. For some, having others do work for them becomes a lifetime affair but not for T1. Nuh-uh.

For her tiny size, I used to resent the Hubs for making her carry her own school bag or any bag for that matter. But he seemed to think that hard work was good for her, so now I’ve relented somewhat. Like whenever we go on holiday, my poor T1, she has to carry her own knapsack that holds the weight of her own water bottle (650ml), her sister’s water bottle (300ml), their change of clothes, their own snacks, their own books and their own toys. YUP. It’s a HEAVY bag.

But she does it without complaint.

Just looking at her from behind, I was so proud of my girl.

Who is Mamapumpkin?
Mamapumpkin spent 7 years in London committing crimes to gain her Bartlett BSc in Architecture. She spent 7 years as a Stay At Home Mom raising her children as documented in this Mamapumpkin blog since over 10 years ago and thereafter returned to the Corporate World stronger than ever. Her last job as Country Director of a British Railway Signalling organisation saw her getting ill with an aortal and mitral heart valve regurgitation and early stage cancer. Through her journey from working to not working to working again, she sets out to prove to all women that they can do anything and everything that they set out to do; as long as they have that fire of desire burning within and the drive to work hard. Even better with oodles of love, passion and integrity.

Despite being ill, she has grown a network marketing business from very little knowledge and experience in the otherwise infamously known MLM (Multi-Level Marketing) industry, racing from an income of ZERO to RM 100,000 monthly in merely 2 years. She is a firm believer of the MLM business model but realises the pitfalls too and understands how and why the majority of people would shy away (or zoom far away) from any MLM business.

She is now pondering the title of her new book, From Zero to 100,000 RM monthly in 2 years and has a sequel in the pipeline with the aim of helping real professionals succeed in the World of MLM. Always the giver, Mamapumpkin has supported orphans for over 30 years and has now extended her care to the sick, single mothers, and even struggling families. She believes that with the MLM business model, we can all have a life of our own desires to enable real contribution into the world.

A beautiful life without limits.

Mamapumpkin currently manages the Homeschooling Hub Malaysia on Facebook. She also runs Working Women Malaysia (not THAT kind of Working Women!), Mamapumpkin - Creating A Life of Abundance, and Funky Moms on Facebook to offer REAL support to all women who want career and life success. She is a living testimony that women really can have a lot. Being financially free has enabled her to travel the world anytime anywhere doing anything, and she spends most of her day to day with her children, reading and supporting other women.

  1. Yup I agree too! We always carried their bags especially when we had a maid. It’s just so easy to spoil them with a maid. Now that we are maidless, I get them to do every possible thing on their own.
