Although I can afford to not work for money, I choose to work because I want my kids to see how hard I work and why we should all work, for whatever reason, for whatever motivation. I have seen too many spoilt rich brats (growing up in an international school environment) who are just wasting their lives away right now still depending on their parents’ coffers and not doing anything useful at all. Urgh.
If my kids ever became lazy like that, I would have failed miserably as a parent.
So I work. Which means they have to follow me around sometimes on boring work trips. Which means they have to get used to me working and them being independent whilst I am working. They are learning lots by sheer observation of me working from home that it could equip them for their future. Already I am seeing signs of them noticing what I do and how I do it and the positive consequence of work. Score!
Whenever I attend my routine 3 monthly visits at the hospital for several hours, they happily entertain themselves without moaning and whinging. They have been programmed to entertain themselves and like clockwork, know how to pack and what to pack for their own entertainment. Sometimes it’s just a notebook, sometimes it’s their loom bands, sometimes they just play with each other’s hair! No matter, as long as they are out of mine, I’m real good.
I want them to learn how to make the best out of anything because life isn’t going to go your way many a time and what do you do? Get depressed and become a victim? Hell, no. Grab that cup half full and keep refilling it. It is the ability to see light, to see humour, to see positivity, in any situation.**************************************************************************
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.
