    Working from home

    Working from home has become very popular of late. People ask me how i can run two businesses AND an employed job.

    “Surely there’s not enough hours in the day?” My friends ask.

    We all have the same amount of hours. It’s how we fill them that matters.

    As I returned to the world of hairdressing after so many lockdowns, those who follow my perfume page regularly will see that i carried on providing a service with my online business when my hairdressing business was temporarily closed.

    Without goals, we just work to pay the bills and miss out on the potential to earn extra money to then enjoy more freedom.

    Earning an extra income

    Earning an extra income. All businesses have been hit hugely with the pandemic and some small businesses have had to close permanently.

    Fast forward to over 18 months on, we have seen many businesses suffer due to temporary closures.

    Sadly those who had to close permanently, just couldn’t keep up with the demand and pressure of the pandemic.

    The pressure, lack of funding and the huge impact of Covid-19 has certainly taken its toll.

    Many people have found themselves looking online for ways to earn another income.

    So many have lost this jobs and this has inevitably led to more open working  online.

    Working on line began 7 years ago with a company called FM.

    Long before Covid was even known or talked about and it was an opportunity to help others join the journey of network marketing.

    It has given them the opportunity to earn some extra money, alongside their current work commitments.

    A light at the end oof the tunnel and it became even more important to have a plan B.

    Struggling to pay bills

    Struggling to pay bills can create a huge stress for millions.

    Life simply revolves around money whichever way we look at it.

    It’s the one thing that makes the world go around.

    There will always be times where we may be struggling to pay the bills.

    Money is needed for almost everything. Without it the bills don’t get paid, we can’t buy food, buy houses, take a holiday…

    The list is endless.

    As children, we never truly appreciate the need for money.

    Asking parents for money for sweets, new shoes, ballet classes etc was the normal thing to do, as youngsters, we never appreciated where that money came from.

    ”Money doesn’t grow on trees” was often a phrase that our parents used to say.

    It certainly doesn’t. We appreciate and use this phase with our own kids.

    Struggling to pay bills

    Fast forward to 2020. We are either working for ourselves or for an employer.

    Suddenly, were not able to work because our business has been closed or the company we work for has been forced to close temporarily.

    Sadly, some have been closed for good. A huge blow to so many businesses that have otherwise been hugely successful in the past and have been trading for several years.

    The lockdowns have come as a huge blow for every individual.

    Employees that find themselves out of work or smaller businesses that had perhaps only just started out before the pandemic hit.

    The young and old have been impacted in one way or another and we find ourselves looking for alternative sources of income.

    Christmas started to approach and we see the end of 2020 very much alone.

    The pressures were felt even more so as we tried to give our children as good a Christmas as we have always done.

    Money was very tight and everyone had to re evaluate how they spent their wages.

    Millions of people began looking for other options as a way to keep afloat during such a crisis.

    It began to show that we really shouldn’t rely on just one source of income.

    Living has become so much more costly over the years and everyday expenses are continuous.

    The price of living, food and bills were still needing out be paid yet everyone was in the same boat and asking themselves how this was going to be possible.

    Over the years, working online has often been criticised as not being a proper job and one that certainly couldn’t sustain a lifestyle of holidays or be enough to pay the bills and keep our heads above water.

    Pressures of everyday life takes its toll on our mental and physical wellbeing. This has been very evident over the past 18 months as some could not see a way out of such a dark place.

    Fear failure fear success

    Fear failure fear success.

    A common phrase and one that many of us have felt.

    Fear failure fear success

    Everyone wants to achieve and be successful in something. It starts from an early age.


    Parents, teachers or even family that are not supportive when we are young will make us carry negative feelings and those feelings carry on through to adulthood.

    The fear of aiming to do something but too scared to in case we fail.

    Without failing at something, we never learn how to succeed.

    After all, success is produced from lots and lots of failures. It’s certainly not a bad thing though because with every failure, we learn something new.

    Each time we learn something new, it’s another step towards succeeding.

    It all comes down to a psychological way of thinking. In order to not fail and feel the negative impact of failure, we simply don’t carry out the task and stay in a comfort zone.

    There is nothing wrong with a comfort zone and it does serves its purpose.

    Sometimes it can be failures from the past but stay in whatever position an adult then finds himself in, they are reminded of that failure from years ago.

    Knowing how it made them feel and the negative impact it caused, keeps them from feeling that way again.

    It’s very easy to avoid something that we are not good at than to attempt to try at it but fear the failure.

    Some people grow up to be perfectionists. Everything has to be right. To avoid anything going wrong they simply avoid situations that they know will put them in an unnerving position.

    There could be a potentially huge opportunity in front of someone, the chance to earn lots of money, to connect with hundreds of people over the world, to meet new friends.

    Yet the voice in the head that tells us we will fail and we won’t be good enough to achieve it, gets in the way.

    How do we know if we will fail, if we never try?


    When I chat to new people, they inevitably ask how long I have been in my network marketing business.

    “7 years” is my reply.

    “Wow….that’s a long time “

    Interesting. Why is it a long time ?

    If you spoke to someone who works at a supermarket and they said that they’d been working there for 7 years, would you say “Wow, that’s a long time “ ?

    No, of course not, so why do we say it in NM ?

    A passion for fragrances

    People join companies but when they don’t see immediate results, they quit.
    This is usually before their first year.

    Now, don’t get me wrong, I’m not the highest earner or team builder- far from it -and the road hasn’t always been smooth but what matters to me is that I have never quit.

    Even on the days when things were tough.

    Fear failure fear success
    Tough times never last-tough people do


    Imagine this scenario. A six-month-old baby begins to teach himself to crawl and spends hours, days, months perfecting the skill.

    Many failures, many attempts, a long time with struggling with the concept, until they do eventually learn to crawl and that progress then leads on to learning to walk.

    Would a baby quit because the struggle was too hard ?

    Would a toddler say ‘This walking isn’t for me. It’s too difficult. I quit” ?

    Fear failure fear success
    Babies and young children are taught the fear of failure.



    When we look at something challenging from a different perspective, it all makes sense.

    If we quit, we only fail ourselves and none of us are born to quit. Just like a baby isn’t born to quit the challenge of crawling and walking. It’s part of learning and growing.

    We would miss the friendships that we could make with like-minded others.

    We all need a daily routine whatever we are doing. Whether its running a business, bringing up a family or supporting others in need.

    I love what I do and the flexibility it gives me but most of all, I love the opportunity I have been given to use our products, meet amazing people and earn money too.

    If you have been looking for a side hustle, love fragrances and helping others, get in touch so we can chat about what help you need in starting your own journey with FM.
