Hi. I am Selene and am very new at Forums, so please forgive me if I seem a little lost. This looked like a very good forum to start with, so I thought that I would try it out. I have been an Accountant since I graduated from University, but never ever enjoyed work. It was just a means of financial stability. I always read with envy, and maybe was a little skeptical, of people who change careers, or find their true passion. However, recently I just might actually be so lucky. I have started this Online Fashion Website and am really enjoying what I do. Work is no longer boring, and I am always gravitating to the computer and searching for stuff to update my site, as well as my FB Business Page. I have found that there is really such a thing as a passion for what you do, and I am very lucky to have found it. I just hope that my website proves successful, as it has just been launched - but at least I am enjoying it :) Cheers everyone

Hi Selene.

Re: What Do You Do ?

A warm welcome to our Self Development Forum!

You mentioned being “a little sceptical” of people who change careers or find their true passion. Yes, things have changed dramatically over the last 10 years or so. ‘Proper jobs’ used to be 9am to 5pm working for an employer. These days it’s not abnormal at all to change careers several times before retirement, and of course entrepreneurs never retire.

It is also wonderful that you have found your true passion: few people realise what really makes them tick. Wishing you all the best with your new website. Keep checking into our Self Development forum.

Joy

Lori - that sounds like a perfect thing to say. People understand that completely! And then they can ask about whatever self-help area they're interested in. I think most people have something they want help with smile

Jilly -

It's not odd at all - a ton of people have challenges with small talk. There's a whole series of books to help people get over that hurdle smile.

On one hand it's good to know this is a strain for you and to account for it accordingly.

On the other hand, relating to strangers is a critical part of life. The only way to make new friends, to build new relationships, and to integrate into a new location starts with that small talk. So it's a good life skill to at least be "neutral" about it. That is, it's going to happen. It can be avoided. So it's best if it is at least something that is tolerated, vs something that is high-stress-causing.

Hi Selene, I'm new to this forum as well, and your post immediately caught my eye. I'm a tour operator, I accommodate group tourism to Israel (where I live). I used to like what I did, but now I'm very tired of it; I no longer want other people to dictate how I should work, when I should get up in the morning, and definitely not have a job make me feel bad or even threaten my health. I've been dreaming of becoming my own boss for a while now, outside tourism, but remain too worried that I cannot afford to take the risk. I am very interested to learn how you got started with your fashion website; because I would also like to set up an online business, but just don't know where or how to get started... My interest is second hand, vintage and antiques items...

Hi Sandrina,

Re: What Do You Do ?

A warm welcome to our Self Development Forum!

Starting an Online business is very easy these days. On BellaOnline you'll find lots of different sites that can help you with all aspects of working from home.

Doing something different or new always seems risky at first. Very often it's the fear of stepping out of your comfort zone or going into unknown territory that stops your own success.

One of the best ways forward is to ask yourself what is the worst that could happen if you took a certain step. If you can live with that risk then just go for it.

Hi Joy. I have now become a Business Owner of a Fashion Website called eZone Fashion and I have a FaceBook Page called EZone Fashion as well. It has been tremondously fun, and I have been really enjoying it, updating my page, setting up my website ( even with all the HTML confusing language :) and all. I would be glad to give you a link to my websites but I do not want to violate any rules. You could google or search me- same AVATAR, or send me a message at seleneml@pacific.net.sg. Thanks for accepting me to this forum group. I hope I can meet more people through this :)
