When I first started this blog, it was a form of release from being a lonely Stay-At-Home-Mom because there wasn’t Facebook then and I didn’t have any Mommy friends being one of the firsts in my group to be a Mommy. The blog has evolved into a journal for my children and I found that looking back, I can also see how I myself have evolved over the last 10 years. Freaking incredible if you ask me! If I ever lose this blog, I will cry so much till tears would form a river and that is how much I value my blog as it contains the memories of our last 10 years as a family.
I always thought that my readers were my friends and family abroad as this is one of the ways they are kept updated with our lives here in Malaysia but then I started gaining a following from all over the world. At one point I had 20,000 Unique Visitors coming to my blog every month and I earned a decent income from that but then I started working full time a few years ago and stopped blogging altogether. What a waste! Now that I’ve started again, my readership is slowly climbing again but the best part is, I am now starting to get to know my readers and meeting them in real life. Wonderful!
I also used to think that apart from family and friends, my readers (bless you all!!!) mainly comprised mothers both working at the office and working Moms from home (yes, Stay-At-Home-Moms are working Moms too) and of course, working Moms with an income from home (the hardest workers of all but with possibly the best options?). But last year, a few young ladies approached me from recognising my children and were brave enough to come up to say hello. Amazing!!! I was thrilled that I was an influence to such young and upcoming ladies who were just starting out their adult life fresh from college. THANK YOU, LADIES!!! To all ladies, young and old and older (yes, I even have readers above retirement age!), thank you so much for your support. I would love to meet all of you and am loving the process of meeting some of you even now, by chance, by appointment, by whatever forces bring us together. I am glad that I have been able to be a source of inspiration in whatever way big or small, I am happy to help you with information that I am able to disseminate, and I am happy to be your walking directory when I can afford the time. Thank you, my blessed readers. I do hope to meet more and more of you in the coming months as is already happening now.
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.
