The choice of being busy

I always try explaining how busy I am to people but inadvertently get judged in the process. It’s usually when people invite me to go somewhere and I say I can’t and then have to explain why. People love judging instead of understanding. It’s either I am crap at organising my time, or I need to learn how to MAKE time or why do I want to earn so much money anyway?

Firstly, I am not crap at organising my time. If you had what I had on my plate, there is no free time. I just prioritise and do the best I can and any free time I steal out of there goes straight to my kids. I’m sorry I have to be selfish with my time but because I have so little, my kids get top priority. As for money? I want both my kids to be able to have a good education in a good University and as you know, that costs a lot of money. What about old age? What about medical expenses? What about emergencies? All it takes is for me to have something like Cancer and BOOM! I know, my Mom has Cancer…….

I’m not one of those rich kids who gets hand outs nor did I marry an entrepreneur with lots of cash, so yeah, I have to work really hard in order to have a decent life. Plus, I need some security money too! You never know with men!

So I’m really sorry if I cannot spare you my time. Sometimes I can, sometimes I can’t. Just think of the hawker lady who worked from 4am every morning preparing the food for sales for the day. She worked right up to night, then slept. All she did was work so she could afford her children an education abroad. Do you think she even had a chance to attend a birthday party? I don’t think so. Some of us have to work so just quit bugging me!

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.
