I’m out of full time employment again. Over the last couple of years I have done work for a couple of dodgy companies from being threatened at the back allay Williams Amusements to attempting work at the Polish stronghold at the Swedish Symphony in my hometown of Barnsley, UK. I lasted 9 weeks there and I felt like I was in a foreign country and felt very alone. I have since gone on to study basic Railway Engineering unpaid for a couple of months. The UK has recently stepped up training for railway workers in anticipation of HS2 (New highspeed rail network – connecting the north and South of the country) seeing that the profession was listed under a possible fit for introverts I gave the career direction a shot. I managed to get myself shifts on the railway since. It’s not a career path for me. Irregular infrequent shifts driving round on my own at night anywhere in the country trying to find where I’m supposed to be. I’m sure there’s many good people in the industry but what’s worse is I lent three people money during this short time and all three failed to pay me a dime back with a couple blatantly lying to my face. It was a learning experience at least.
Again my most recent experiences as an employee have done nothing but solidify my ambition to work for myself or follow my true interests and passions for a company that shares the same. I was getting better with the web development and design before these forays once again into these work experiments and this is what I’m going straight back to. I believe the only reason I stray from the path of being true to myself is due to the lack of support and community of people in my circle doing the same. If you are in the same boat please get in touch.
I’ve been reading Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad Poor Dad book series and it has relighted my desire to focus on myself and on building assets instead of lining the pockets of an uncaring corporation.. Following Robert’s advice I plan to register a business of my own when the time is right and expand and grow from there.
