Anyone who knows me well enough, often refer to me as Alan Sugar or Del Boy! For as long as i can remember i have been quite resourceful and always had an idea on the go, how i’m not a millionaire yet is bloody beyond me!
I remember charging my Brother £4.00 for ironing his jeans when i was about 13, not bad for about 10 mins work (even better when i once realised i had ‘ironed’ his jeans without switching it on….by mistake of course) but i still handed them over, took the money and ran haha! Maybe my calling is baliff or debt collector…..?
Ever since i can remember, i have been interested in Business and making money. I’ve never been particularly good at it, but i have this major habit of now, eyeing up anything and everything and asking myself, can i buy this wholesale? How cheap can i get my hands on some of those? Can i sell this? I’ve had my hands on everything from baby football strips to lacey knickers, but still, i’m trying to find the niche product!
My latest interest is things i can make myself, i think this is partly the maternal instinct in me, babytwoshoes is due in 6 weeks time and i can already vision him ending up in some disaster i thought was good at the time! I impulse bought 40 battery operated candles for my latest project and some battery l.e.d lights, they are currently in a box in the spare room and i keep walking past them and telling myself they were a good buy…..of course they were!!
I was discussing with a fellow business lover a few weeks back about how i think of a ‘good’ idea, i spend hours researching the idea, convince myself that this really is ‘the one’ and then totally back track, think of all the reasons why it can’t possibly work and talk myself out of it. Fellow business friend, laughed and nodded and said she too was exactly the same, we put it down to us both being over cautious, over analysing Capricorns! I annoy myself!
I’ve been reading alot of Mummy blogs at the minute, those of you who work for yourself, please give me some inspiration and words of encouragement. I desperately don’t want to go back to work if i can help it and i have 6 months to achieve this.
I’m interested in so many things, i feel i will hit 45 (i’m not even 30 yet) and i still won’t know what i want to be when ‘i grow up’
Don’t know about Alan Sugar, i’m more like Step Toe!…………
