Yes, I do have a problem with the Izumio business.
1. Every person I see suffering I want to help. To the point where I would just give them free consumption. But how many can I help? Someone just showed me a picture of two small children suffering a gene disorder where their skin is cracked and bleeding, even worse than the worse of eczema that I have seen, and they look like they are from a poor family, and I wanted to give them free products straight away. I have another friend who is dying and I also want to give her free products. And I WILL!!! At the end of the day, I will be doing a losing business. Which is actually fine by me because to me, that is my primary purpose. It is why I do what I do. But I don’t think the Hubs thinks in the same way and if I did do what my heart desired, he would stop me in my tracks immediately. Sigh. SO I try to hide as much as I can to strike a balance.
2. It is depressing sometimes. Because like it or not, people die. Yes, I have had several patients who have left me last year. I did the best that I could and I prayed for all of them but they still went for various reasons. It killed me. These are people I have met and formed relationships with. They are people whom I was supposed to have helped. It teaches me that when God says it is time, it is time. May all their souls rest in peace and may they take good care of the loved ones that they have left behind as it is them now that I am supporting. This is a continuous journey and just because a patient leaves us, I stop. No. The motive is genuine as it always has been and the families have shown gratitude to which I am humbled.
3. Crazy, greedy, psychotic, demanding customers. Nuff said. Like I don’t have a life?
4. Jealousy. When you are earning so much money and doing well, there are bound to be others who get jealous of you. That isn’t my problem. I’ve had people jealous of me all my life. It stems from their own insecurities. Some gung ho women who love attention and are the live wires of their circles? Some of them are the saddest, most eaten up beings; and due to that, they lash out on others. I see it everywhere. So when I come across some real people? Man, I clench them so tight with my heart. Because these ‘normal’ people are rare and few and far between. Practically every woman around me has a hang up or two. But the ‘normal’ ones? I love them so much. They are just so NORMAL!!! Shit! I LOVE normal!!! If you ever leave me, I will CRY a RIVER!!!
5. Too many orders. Believe it or not, I cannot cope with the demand at the moment. I have already hired a part time ad-hoc driver to help me. I am still trying to figure out the best options of delegation. Which reminds me…..there is something I need to attend to right this minute.**************************************************************************
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.
