The Working Dad

The Hubs works late at the office because he just does not have enough manpower. In his line of work, it is very difficult getting good staff. Actually, in many lines of work in Malaysia, the work force is just crap so the article that recently came out about Malaysian salaries being lower than our Asian neighbours is apt because our productivity is rubbish! Honestly, how much work can you really get done if you’re spending time chatting away in the pantry, taking breaks to go down for brunch or tea, wasting time reading the smartphone in the toilet on the pretext of a very long poo, etc etc etc. And then there are the Emergency Leave days and the Medical Leave days that staff take full advantage of. And then they moan that they’re salaries are so low. The good WILL stand out and the good WILL get good bonuses. Unless you are unlucky enough to be working for a lousy employer in which case, change jobs!

On the weekends, the Hubs works as well. In fact, he never gets a break except for the very rare times that we go on holiday so I really admire his strength. He has single minded focus and  works purposefully. However, over the weekends, his work is one he actually enjoys more often than not. It is being with his family and taking care of the girls. However, he has ME as backup! If I left the girls to him and left the house, he would be stressed before noon. Tried and tested.

Sigh. What would men do without us? Honestly!

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.
