Most weekends I have a little think about the week that has just gone. I see what I can learn from the week's events and what opportunities I need to follow up on in the future.
This morning I was thinking about a trip I made to Birmingham on Wednesday to see a friend who, following my trip, is now also a customer. She has signed up to Utility Warehouse and will now be saving money every month.
I really love my work because pretty much everything I do helps others in one way or another. It is great to be able to help other people save significant amounts of money each month and to help others generate an income that changes their life.
But what I was thinking about most is how I gave up a job because of the long journeys I had to make. Not that many years ago I was travelling around the country with work regularly and really did not enjoy it. Yet now I was happy to spend over six hours out of the house and travel over 170 miles for an appointment with a customer. The fact it was also a friend is a bonus of course but my whole attitude to work is different now I work for myself.
A trip to Birmingham in the past would have been a major chore but now it was a delight. Making new friends, helping people save money and growing my business all at the same time.....it really is a win-win situation in the true sense.
