In the world of business, there will always come a point where the ones that fall behind start playing dirty. And with a people business more so. It is an unfortunate state of affairs and despite how much we try not to involve ourselves, we are still affected in one way or another. In all of my work life, I have always maintained a professional stand taking pride in how I operate. Not just me but my entire team in every industry I have dabbled in thus far. But nothing I have experienced so sinister till now.
In 2014, I experienced the wrath of some women but they weren’t nearly as bad. It was just mindless bitching (as many women do) and there was one particular crazy one who went below the belt to do things that you just couldn’t imagine, but all that is behind us now. They have extended the olive branch and I have ignored it. Another seemingly good friend (to the rest of the world) turned out not to be one too but thankfully I sussed her from Day One. Once bitten twice shy. I am not daft and I value my own friendship to the skies.
Now that I am in this cowboy business, WOW. It is really a dog eat dog world out there. Bitchiness has arrived at a whole new level. People are ruthless and vicious and will stop at nothing to get ahead of you and/or to bring you down. It doesn’t help that I am successful, of course. It is truly a scratch your eyeballs out kind of playing field.
So I was in a bit of a shock. And then I became VERY shocked as it all sunk in. But I have quickly mustered up the strength and courage to stand tall and do what is right. No playing dirty for me. I think that if you stay on course and do all the right things, karma will protect you. The dirty players are being very competitive by cheating customers left, right and centre, lying about the products, conning people from their rightful bonuses, moving people from organisations unethically, calling people up to make slanderous comments about me, gosh. It. Is. Scary. I could report them but I don’t even dare do that. They might kill me!!! Literally.
So we just move on and do as we do with our heads held high following the company’s mission in creating a million smiles and ignore the dirty players. What else can we do, right? They make it very difficult for us but we just trudge on. Good always wins and love conquers all.**************************************************************************
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.
