Hello and welcome to our pathway; working together to achieve all we deserve in our work and future incomes…..
I have learnt a lot over my career of Sales – Customer Service and Credit Management. The achievements in each of my roles actually became wonderful because of the constructive and motivated teams I worked with. I always preferred to share results with like-minded colleagues… rather than my “staff”. All that I have ever achieved is because of tight teams working to understand our focus, and ensuring we all share the successful results of honest work.
My life before now
I was raised by a very normal family on a country property – attended a small country primary school – (17 students from Kindergarten to Class 6 ! ) and then to a country town, High-scholl of 1,000 students. Always excited by being part of working groups responsible for the school magazines, sports teams, and theatrical groups, musicals etc…. the social aspect of my high school years always my motivation. I was fortunate to have also been able to produce acceptable A grade results – to keep my parents happy, for their commitment to ensure I had all the time needed to “study”.
Because of the families financial situation I was not able to attend universities, where annual fees were required at that time – but as an 18-year old, I was actually excited that I could move to a great city looking for work opportunities. I was so excited to arrange a job interview before I left the family home. I attended this initial interview and was offered this same position – without any expectation I accepted and started work immediately.
After several months I realised that employment can be mundane and began the search for a position that might be challenging. After 4 months in the city I was very grateful to start a new role – where life path of true interests began.
From the initial clerical and administrative role – I became involved in the sales support to a life assurance team of more than100 people and that started the path of the Sales and Customer Service focus I have always been committed too.
I believe if we offered a service – then it should be based on our constructive plans to achieve an expected outcome. (So formal!) Which also means: we should earn an income based on commissions or wages as an acknowledgment for our contributions to overall success.
These are the lessons I’ve carried through my working career and believe that success always means so much more when it is acknowledged as a “teams” result.
During my different employment experiences – I have studied to the Advanced Diploma Level in Management – and learnt many functions that were necessary. After tenure of over 12 years in 2 positions, my last employment situation was different. As I worked to have my team understand the need for a change of attitude and what we could and needed to achieve; we were very proud of the KPI’s as we started to achieve our plans.
The unfortunate side of this meant that the retail sector of a government company was to offered for sale to the open market. Through that process we maintained all our statistics and planned for the redundancy we expected. After this sale was completed – all of my team – (me included after 6 years of employment) were amongst the 1600 staff made redundant.
After some personal travel and the life decisions that are important – I have moved back to the country to assist my elderly family. Unfortunately employment opportunities are very small in this area and I’ve created my leaning curve yet again. While I have joined an employment agency and have been fortunate to have received several long month-by-month placements – I have earnestly committed to learning about Affiliate Marketing and Internet Opportunities. When I started work – seemingly many years ago…. my first employer had electronic typewriters and taped Telex machines – now children have access to simplified computer tools before attending Kindergartens !!
I have done my fair share of research – looking at how to create productive websites, where all the facets of construction and value are offered in lessons, support and audits before publication. (I occasionally go back to a website I created in 2007 as a sales tool for my employer at that time….. and I promise….. I will never share that name now !! 🙂 )
