Hi, I’m Craig and I am hoping to be the guy who helps you Start Working for You!
Like countless others, I worked many, many years in a job that, while I didn’t hate it exactly, I didn’t really care for it. I made the mistake of leaving school early and entered the workforce. I was at the mercy of employers because I didn’t really have a whole lot to offer, other than the willingness to work hard and learn.
I entered the retail field. I didn’t think of it as a horrible job, really, because I figured I was providing a service to my customers and I took pride in that. I gave the best possible customer service that I could and enjoyed the relationships that formed with both co-workers and regular clients.
The biggest problem, as any retail worker can tell you, is that the pay wasn’t very good, the hours weren’t great. some customers were… difficult, and most of all, no matter how long or how hard I worked, I wasn’t getting anywhere, even as I was promoted to supervisor, assistant manager and manager. I will never forget a coworker who said to me “we’re all lemons; once they squeeze the juice out of us, they toss us away and take another.”
That’s a pretty sad statement, but as the years went by, I started to believe it more and more. I finally realised that all the work I was doing was for someone else’s benefit; I was helping customers with their needs, I was helping my store to do well and attract clients and I was helping the company make money which really wasn’t being shared with the employees. I was spending years of my life building the dreams of other people.
Time to Think about Me
I finally realised that working for someone else was never going to get me to the place I wanted to be. I would never travel, I would never have the things I wanted, I would never be able to give my wife and kids the things they deserved. I also realised that I would never be able to stop working. Retirement in my old age wouldn’t be possible considering that after 25+ years of working full time my bank account was regularly overdrawn and I had no savings to speak of.
No, I would never get the life I wanted working for someone else. It was time to start working for me and that is what I am doing now. My time and my effort is going into making the life I want, doing the things I want. I’ve worked with so many people over the years who deserve much more than what they are receiving in life. They are working hard, but not living the life they want. If you are reading this, maybe you are the same.
