I feel like I should start out with a brutal confession. I’ve tried a lot of different things, and failed. Seriously, A LOT of things.
It’s really hard to pinpoint when I started “working”, as I was the type of kid that was always seeing opportunities to “make a buck”. Whether that was selling crayons in second grade, leasing swings on the playground in fourth grade, or some of the more physically demanding jobs like mowing lawns and helping my uncles in their painting business as a teenager. I do know that the day I turned 14 was the day I applied for my “working papers” and officially entered the working world.
When I say I’ve tried a lot, here’s the short list:
Restaurant work (everything from dishwasher, short order and line cook, banquet setup, server, barback, and bartender)
Overnight Cashier at a convenience store
Deck hand for a tour boat on the Historic Erie Canal
Door to door fundraiser for a wildlife organization
Developmental Specialist for a children’s organization
And a Training Consultant for the world’s oldest training organization in the world
So yeah, when people say been there done that, I can relate.
That said what I’ve succeeded in is figuring out what doesn’t work, and that’s really good news for you.
What doesn’t work is what you’ve always been told. It used to. It really did. But it doesn’t anymore. And that’s why I’m here. To teach a better way. A way that leads to fulfillment, excitement, and happiness.
So will you join me on this adventure?
I sure hope so.
