Upasna was sick of going to a stress-filled job that she hated, so when she left for maternity leave, she decided to look for a new opportunity that would supplement her income…
My background is in HR and when I came to England six years ago I started working as a recruitment consultant. This was by far the most stressful time of my life and I hated every minute of my job. When I learnt that I was expecting my little girl, I decided to quit my job due to health reasons. I was really glad to be off work and I was enjoying every minute of motherhood again (it had been ten years). Although I knew I didn’t want to go back to full-time work, I also knew that I wouldn’t want to be a stay-at-home mum, so I started to look for opportunities that would allow me to work around my children part-time.
Came across a Facebook advert that was promoting the Forever business opportunity and I decided to look into it a bit more. At first I was unsure if I could do it, but then I started questioning my own doubts – if others could do it, then why couldn’t I do it too? I took a leap of faith and decided to give it a try. At the time I was about to leave for my summer break to India, so I initially started by just using the products. I used the products extensively whilst I was in India and that’s what built my confidence in them, and in Forever as a company.
I absolutely love what I do. Forever provides me with a regular income, freedom from a full-time job and the chance to be my own boss. I have time to spend with my children, I can help my older son with his studies, we can do things together and I can be with them if they’re unwell. I don’t have to stress about leaving them with the childminder anymore! I achieved Supervisor in February and it’s been exciting gaining that promotion and moving up the Marketing Plan, but more than anything it has proven to me that I can achieve new heights if I want to.
Forever has instilled new confidence in me, and it has given me the power to dream and not be afraid. I may have been a bit ‘slow’ during those first initial months, but now I’m confident and I’m going in for the kill; I won’t stop until I have achieved what I want to – watch this space!
