Back at my old job there were some days where I barely used my brain at all!
I just did the same thing over and over again.
So what happened after you got fired?
Did a new opportunity come your way?
Not exactly. It took me about a year to figure out that opportunities weren't going to come my way...
I learnt that you have to create your own opportunities.
So that's when you started your company.
Yep! I always had an interest in gardening.
So I thought to myself: there must be a lot of people who also have this interest and would like to have a garden but don't have the time to set one up.
So now you go around making custom-designed gardens for homes and offices, right?
Yes! I never would've thought in a million years that my interest in gardening would turn into a career!
If I hadn't gotten fired, I would've never found my calling!
That's cool... and it does offer me some hope.
I guess I need to do some thinking about what I really want to do.
I'm not saying it's going to be easy...
I spent almost one year doing odd jobs and trying to figure out what I wanted to do.
Not having a stable income can be difficult.
Yeah... right now I have some savings so I'll be good for about six months...
But if I can't find something after that it's going to start getting tough.
Do you have a "dream" or something you've always wanted to do?
Well, I have always had the idea of opening a bicycle store.
I'm talking about selling rare, vintage or special custom-made bicycles.
Interesting! Cycling is quite a trend these days and if you can find bicycles that no one else has... it just might work!
I've always been interested in bicycles and I know a lot about them.
I never thought I would have a chance to open a bike store.
Give it some thought! This could be your calling in life!!
I'll think about it! Thanks, Suzanne! Now let's eat!
