Today’s guest joining us on the Join Up Dots free podcast is a lady who like so many of us decided that she wanted something in life, and then found out that she hated it once it was achieved.
As she says in her own words “My lifelong goal was to be a manager. I hit the corporate fast track and became a manager in record time – and found out I hated it!
The long hours, corporate politics and endless budget meetings drained my energy and enthusiasm for life. What I really wanted, I decided, was a life where I could make my husband and kids my top priority – so I quit the corporate world to run my own business. I built and ran several businesses but something was still missing.”
That statement is so interesting to me on so many levels, which we will discuss on the show.
But our guest worked on living a life with status and prestige, but then changed direction.
So she became an entrepreneur which is the direct opposite to where she was and still it wasn’t right.
These decisions seem to be directed by her head, or her survival instincts, yet once she listened to her heart, and really listened to what the old blood pumper was telling her then it all came together for her.
And now she works with clients all over the world in such wonderful places as Holland, Belgium, Australia, U.K., Hong Kong and more!
She has coached and mentored hundreds of entrepreneurs helping them create 6 figure businesses and beyond.
Even achieving six figures in one day.
So does she look back at her career in corporate land and thank the gods that even though she was climbing up the wrong ladder, it still taught her the skills to build her own ladder and start climbing again?
And how does she balance this increased success with also being a Mum and Wife. Could she see a time when once again the ladder turns out to be wrong?
Well let’s find out as we bring onto the show to joining up the dots, with the one and only Val Bullerman.
