You’ve heard of the TV show Big Brother?
I wasn’t a fan, but the other day I watched a replay of the Filipino version. My friend said ‘Did you know that Pokwang got her start on shows like Big Brother?’
The lady she was referring to was known to me. I had seen her do comedy and she is also one of the stars of a high ranking soap opera in The Philippines.
But here is where it gets interesting……..
A few years ago Pokwang (her real name is Marietta Subong) was working as a maid in Dubai to bring in enough income to support her children back home.
Born into grinding poverty Pokwang was destined to follow in the footsteps of millions of other poor Filipinos who scour the world looking for menial jobs just to put food on the table, and take care of their families.
But something wonderful happened. She made the decision to follow her dream to become an entertainer and make people laugh.
Once the decision had been made she then figured out a way to get some exposure. So she entered talent contests and auditioned for various shows (in Dubai and later Japan).
Slowly she honed her skills and built a small fan base which she then used to springboard herself into mainstream television. Now, she is a big star here. But it started with a dream, a decision, and a plan.
Relating this story back to you and your quest for financial freedom in the home business arena, there’s a lesson to be learned.
The problem I have is that whilst many people would LIKE to quit the rat race and have a great lifestyle like me, most haven’t yet made the DECISION to do it.
Pokwang wanted a better life for sure, but it wasn’t until she made the decision to do something about it that things started to move forward for her. Once the decision was made she created a plan which in turn galvanized her into action.
As we get older we realize just how little time we have left to reach our goals. Do you want financial freedom? Do you love the idea of laptop lifestyle?
Great. So make the decision and get started….
