This is my first blog post and as I write I am filled with feelings of excitement and trepidation. This blog site is still being built – and I am building it! That may not seem incredible except to anyone that knows me and they will know how much I have had to learn and stretch. I have often been the subject of jokes in the office with my lack of technical ability.
As I commence my journey into this new world (new for me anyway) I keep going back to a point in time when I had a very clear picture of myself sitting at a computer writing for a living from home. It was during a meditation and there are several reasons this moment is so clear and memorable in my mind :
1. I didn’t type and had never thought of working from home.
2. I didn’t know how to turn a computer on.
3. I had a PA and marketing team who wrote everything for me.
4. It was during a guided group meditation with a company my husband and I owned. We had a coach working with us and the purpose of the meditation was to set goals for a sales campaign and to see ourselves winning etc. I decided at the time NOT to share my experience with our 40 odd staff!
That moment was somewhere in the last months of 1997. Here I am just over 12 years later working from home without staff. I have learned a myriad of skills to enable me to be self sufficient. But somewhere way back then I knew deep down my path was to change.
