The funny thing is we did not do anything fancy on New Year’s Eve. That is SO weird because for as long as I can remember, I have been partying out and about somewhere or other. Sign of old age? Actually, we had just literally arrived from our month holiday in Scandinavia and just too pooped to care about celebrating New Year’s Eve quite honestly. We spent it quietly with family instead with a nice dinner.
So what’s on for 2018?
I have designed my meal plans for the entire year. That’s efficiency for you. This way, I don’t have to think. All I have to do is refer to the plan and follow blindly. Even my grocery shopping time is cut based on what I need for the week. It is freaking awesome to have this meal thing planned in advanced, Moms!! You don’t have to be crazy to do it a year in advance but at least do it in advance.
I have been working hard to streamline my businesses. There is a lot happening behind the scenes and I have so many ideas that I am trying to implement but not enough manpower support to follow through just yet. One thing that’s been a bloody pain in the ass are my taxes. I have so many companies that it is a nightmare trying to track what happened to which and probably an even worse nightmare for my accountant. The bad news is that everything is above board meaning I pay through my backside, armpits and boobs until they ache.
We have set in motion our plans to migrate. It’s a lot of research on schools and property locations. I am actually quite excited about starting a new life as the last few years have been extremely draggy dealing with way too many people for my liking. Like seriously. I was not born to be with people. All I want to do is to live my simple life in a little cottage surrounded by roses and a beautiful weathered garden my kids can play in without all these unnecessary people. People suck the living life blood out of me, I swear. This year I am cutting and culling my people list and I am being ruthless about it. I know my worth and will only offer my friendship to the very best. Quality over quantity.
Last year, we spent 2 months at the Sofitel at their Junior Suite which was so minuscule that we’re surprised we didn’t kill each other. We had to stay there due to our MINOR renovation that the Hubs said would take 2-3 weeks that he really meant 2 months. We renovated all 3 bathrooms and the kitchen. That was it but it felt like we were building the most ornate palace. What we did learn staying at the Sofitel though was that we could really survive with so little. It proved to us that with nothing, we could still be so happy as a family, just by being together, the 4 of us. We are SO CLOSE almost like best buddies for life. And if we had each other, it didn’t matter where we were nor what we had, we’d be complete. The Hubs was saying that it’d be hard now to top our Aurora Holiday. Too many incredible memories. So damn blessed I am. Still don’t know what I did to deserve it but suspect my Mother did good and I am reaping the rewards.
My team of women currently stand at almost 2,000 so I am looking to close this year with 3,000 doubling my income. We are planning to have a cut back year where we say no to everything the kids ask for. I have also started using a budget App on my phone which is so amazing because it is really helping me not throw money away like I never earned it! And the lean budget I set myself was RM2,500 a month. Heck, it’s January my first month and I have already burst the budget. BUT I will not give up.
I have really learnt so much in the last year, with the meditation classes, with the experience of bullies, spending all those hours at lawyers offices, pouring love onto people who needed it, playing with drones, seeing the Aurora Borealis 8 incredible times!!!
I am looking to retire another 10 women this year to add to my dozen.
Let’s make it happen.**************************************************************************
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.
