i like this guy for some reason, gives me a charles bronson vibe.Ok, I'm a technical guy, I can write programs, I can install and configure routers, firewalls and switches, I know a ton about Electrical Engineering, and I can sell. I have decent morals, and if i am honest I consider myself an Anarchist, I do what i like , when i like, and I ain't star struck about any living being.. oh and at some point in the near future I will probably be banned from this forum.
I used to work for a large military aircraft manufacturer in UK, wonderful job for a young person, but as i got to about 21 I was thrust into no longer training, I was like a serious employee. After a couple more years i didn't like having a ceiling on what i could earn, i used to work overtime and didnt even bill for it..I couldnt be arsed billing for another 100 pounds a month, that was chicken feed in my eyes.. I wasnt even prepared to break sweat over it. Anyway after being led by people i would rather punch in the face, people who had issues with me for whatever reason. I decided to leave and swap my computer programming role, temporarily for a sales role and move to London.
In London, I worked at a small recruitment firm, and within 18 months, I had trippled my wage from my highest wage before that, this is when i realised that wow there was a lot more money out there and it was accessible to me. Anyway i worked the contracting section, and as you can see, when im being myself, I'm the king of the world..the director of the company didnt like my confidence but she loved my figures, and kept trying to bring people in above me ..to head my section and to expand my section.. They all ended up getting sacked. But for certain reasons she wouldnt give the section to moi.
I said F*ck you and left my company and said I m gonna set up on my own...I set up my business and asked a collegue to join, and within another 18 months i had shattered all my records, and in a single month i once earned about 35 thousand pounds, and it was all my money if i wanted to withdraw it..and it was like easy money.
I soon fell out of love with my collegue and ssacked them....which left me all alone in my office with my girlfriend showing up for a couple of hours a day..and i got bored and started to just live off my money for a couple of years just partying and playing and training...until my pot ran dry..I actually thought i couldnt fail ...money and more money was always easy to me...making money was easy, was my mindset.
I then opened an electrical business, and made a brief plan and started from absolutel zero..within about 2 years i had a couple of employees, a nice van, all the tools and certs, but on a good month, i used to earn like 12 grand...and about 2 of that was parts, about 4 of that was wages to employees...leaving me with 6 grand a month after running round all over london morning noon and night..i thought man i used to make easier money than this. this is a crap business. and i closed it down, let the staff go and said im going into higher money business.
I then scooted around for ideas and met a bunch of developers who spent millions of buying properties and changing them and then selling them..in short this did not work, i had several of my properties stolen off me by the money guys, and i quit...
all the time eveyrone telling me to get a job, you earn good money in a job...so i sat down for a couple months and did cisco ccna and started studying for ccnp..anwyay i landed a job at a managed service provider and worked there for about 18 months..i was really looking at the business side of things, thinking how could i set up my own operation like this...i could open up network field installation firm, or advertise lines and resellthem for the company i was working at.. I hadnt been in corporate office for many years and i hated it. I didnt like the director of the company , my boss was an a**hole, and at the end of the month i was paid about 4 k...ha ha, and sometimes i got in the office at 8:30 and got home at midnight. I left...
ps prior to getting this job , I had gone to the last phase of another job interview, they said the office manager wanted to meet me. This guy walked in who did weights, he said he is not technical, but according to his guys, I had passed that side of things, he said he just wants to chat...During the conversation, he said oh so you used to own your own recruitment company, I told him yes, he said did it go bust, I said no. He said well why did you shut it down, I said i was bored of it and wanted to do something else...He said how much money did you make, I said well in my best year i turned over around 300 thousand, and of that about 100 grand was profit...he said bullshit...I said well what can i say to that, he said well why woul d you stop.. I said i was bored and didnt like it any more. He said well he has a friend who does that and he is a top consultant and he only just makes that kind of money and you are saying you did it on your own...I said yes...He said i think your bullshitting..I said listen Im going to leave, but if you want to check its as easy as looking at my accounts , i was a limited company and its all available ..good bye..and afterwards i kicked myself , i should have told him to go F*ck himself.
then i sat down and thought...man what is yoru problem what do you want to do ... and i realised that my main aim was to do whatever i liked...to have zero agenda to spend my life in freedom, I also resented any company i had worked for, I hated company politics and for the main kept out of it by keeping my gob shut, and basically trying to just get on with everyone, even then (although inside im a bit of a monster) when i behave myself, i come across as a softie, and people actually tried to push me around at times...this was quite amusing...some weak minded weak body punk trying to push me around....THE KING...YOU DONT PUSH THE KING AROUND.
Anyway, after much thought, i concluded, that in my mind a job was corporate slavery, I didnt like being told what to do by my inferiors, I had been brought up by slaves, all my life my father was on my back telling me to get a job and work hard and save, my mother knew i was more of a, gonna do things my way, and all i want from life is FREEDOM !
the only important thing in my life is freedom, I need to be in charge of my own destiny in its entirety, and businesss is only thing that has given me what i would say is close to freedom in my life.
My dad recently retired, after working and putting up with lots of shit all his life, he had a lot of tia, which are mini strokes, got diabetes, and hydroceffulus. so he is pretty much bed ridden...
that poor man worked all his life to retire in a close to death situation...my mother worked really hard, we were very poor to start with, and my mum taught herself the way s of the world and now she has one of the most beautiful average houses in town which she owns outright, she has just finsihed doing it up how she likes it, she has just retired, and boom she has breast cancer...which is small and seems like it can heal
anyone reading this...dont feel sorry for me ..this is gonna happen to you all, shit happens...im just telling you my score ..now toughen up and dry your eyes.
every one is gonna die, and it could be any time..thats all i know...If anything, im lucky to have been brought up all my life with 2 real healthy strong parents who are still married and brought us up well..thats a result in my eyes.
So here we are, I have been battling for years, I am a slave escaping the massa, who is corporate slavery ..and that is all i have been doing for the past 15 years, I would rather die on my feet than live on my knees..I cant live the life my parents did, I am KING of my world.
After much thought i decided to go back into recruitment, ( a lot has changed in how it is done since i last did it ) but i shall prevail, and this time, i won't make the mistakes i made last time,
The main lessons I learned is that, dont think money will always come easy to you.
when you make money, invest back in the machine , dont just keep working at the business, work on the business,
wild horses could not make me take a job,
maybe part of my quest is proving to my family, that i told you so , the slavery of life stopped at me , i can run things, i dont need to work for others.
i also have a lot of people i want to stick it to, when i was doing great, they were kind of timid around me, when i ended up with nothing, and starting business again (sevearl times) they suddenly became the know it alls, and cocky even one of them telling me he was ahead of me in life...he is a bloody truck driver, and he though t he was ahead because he got a mortgage on a bloody 2 up 2 down poky filthy house...time to show these F*ckers who really knows the score. So i have to get massive success, not just for freedome, but i want people to resent the time they ever set eyes on me
always telling me ...why you not clubbing any more , why you not smoking weed any more , why you not wanna go on holiday with us any more, why not watch tv for 24 hours any more, you must be depressed you must be lost ...bullshit bullshit and more bullshit..i stopped explaining myself to others several years ago..they dont get it that i wnat to control my own life ..and that although they feel they are in control ..they arent.
business experience makes you look through to the essence of bullshit,
i dont think like i used to and really think working at a job would now be like a prison sentence for me..im too far gone now.
I dont know if i will succeed, I think i must at some point, but even if i dont, I m happy with that, that i spent my life doing things my way.
business is hard work, but its all for your own benefit so no big thing
everyone you know is gonna die, and you dont wanna die a slave
freedom is the only thing worth pursuing in my life proper freedom.
I may add to this if something pertinent comes to mind .
