Learning the ropes.


“Embarking on my journey as a representative for an online company has been quite the challenge, but I’m quickly learning the ropes. It’s not like customers are lining up with their wallets open, ready to hand over their hard-earned cash. No, no, no. I have to earn their trust and prove myself as a worthy business partner. It’s a slow and steady process, but I’m confident that once I’ve won them over, they’ll keep coming back for more and even spread the word to their nearest and dearest. My current mission is to expand my clientele by growing my Facebook group. It’s a big job, but someone’s gotta do it!”

When I Grow Up: A Look Back at Childhood Career Dreams

When you were five, what did you want to be when you grew up?

Almost every child has dreams of what they’d like to be when they grow up, I certainly did. What did you want to be, and is that the job you have now?


As a child I spent a lot of time in and out of the doctor’s and hospitals, so I think it was only inevitable that at some point I’d desire to work in the medical profession somehow. I dreamt of being a nurse, even at a young age I realised that this probably wasn’t a realistic career path for me, but even so it was one I hoped to attain.

Later on having grown beyond this and taken on board that this wasn’t going to happen, I turned my aim towards working with young children in someway, I wasn’t sure what in form this job would take, and was advised that this would never be possible due to my disability. On this, I am delighted to say, I proved the nay sayers wrong.

In the end I did indeed work with young children for over ten years, as a Nursey School Assistant. I helped them with their reading, writing, crafts, and also to build their computer skills. Along the way I also hope I taught them other life skills such as empathy, tolerance, sharing, listening, and understanding everyone is different but of equal value/importance.
