OVER 50 YEARS AGO
….at the very shy age of 18 I started my first full job, in an office where ladies still wore white gloves and hats and no woman ever dared to show up to work in a pair of trousers.
I wasn’t an entrepreneurial genius and had fallen into the mold of doing exactly was expected from me day after day at the office. Yes, my experience and skills had elevated me to several positions, but it was hardly any compensation when they decided to shut down the sales office and oust me from my job 2 weeks before Christmas. Cold blooded corporations have to close their books at the end of the year and their severance package is supposed to be all that is required to thank you for 28 years of excellent service.
DON’T WANT TO WORK FOR ANYONE ELSE ANYMORE!
After 40 years of working within the corporate structure for a few companies, I realized I didn’t want to work for anyone else anymore. Too many rules and too much sacrifice. Plus I’m a slow learner. No that’s not true, I’m a stick with it kind of gal, it’s much harder for me to throw in the towel even when I know something is not working.
STARTING OVER AT 58
Then 15 years ago, at the age of 58: suddenly I’m starting all over again. All I can say is thank goodness for MLM, direct sales. Not that I ever wanted to be a sales person, my skills had all groomed me for customer service, not trying to get someone to buy something, we had a sales staff for that job. Stepping into the realm of direct sales was so very scary mainly because when I got out of bed in the morning, I had no idea where to start.
MY LEAP OF FAITH
Fortunately, at the guidance of my daughter and a new generation of “go getters” who didn’t believe in the corporate structure, she convinced me to take a “leap of faith” and jump into a new start-up company called SeneGence.
I let her lead the way because she had done her due diligence and had studied many MLM companies and was very impressed with this company because of the structure and compensation plan. At the time, that meant nothing to me. All I knew was that I was about to begin something entirely new.
Over the next 15 years, it has taken me to places I would never have traveled and met so many wonderful people I would never have had the opportunity to meet.
It’s never too late to follow your dreams and start all over again.
