Look at what determination can achieve!

Ahhhhhhhhhhh!!!! OK Crystal calm down- breeeaaaathe. Sorry about that. Let me continue on with my usual opening line…

Here I am again… blogging.

THIS IS AN UPDATE on my post entitled “being friendly gets you everywhere- 20 March 2011”.

I’ve spent the past month encouraging you, my beloved readers, with stories regarding how I plan to get what I want out of life (my career in particular). Those of you who regularly read my blog will remember that on 20th March 2011 I got a random blackberry message from a friend asking me to work at a law firm for the day (if you’ve not read it then do so now! Then come back and read this post).  For my regulars read on.

Today I had decided to email my CV to numerous law firms in the hope that one would reply with some good news. Just as I had finished one email I saw a flash to my left and it was my phone ringing. Guess who it was? Read on…

It was the lady from the firm I had worked for last month offering me job! Yes my loyal readers a J-O-B. I’ve been looking for a paid legal job for months and I got one without having to write a long-winded letter explaining why I should be hired! I start on Monday at 9.30 AM.

The moral of this story is that people remember you when you go out of your way for them, even when it inconveniences you. I dropped all my plans for the day to work for her firm and she has remembered me.

When you want something badly enough you seem to attract it!

I’ll leave Happy Feet to express how I’m feeling right now. Watch the video below.

Until next time.

I empower young adults to transition successfully from school to the real world. WHY? It's needed! Just remember what it was like for you. HOW? Through inspirational self-help books , story telling and impactful workshops, seminars and conferences. WHO AM I: I'm the person who sees a need and creates a practical solution to solve it. I'm the first one in my family to have gone to university and found the "school to university" transition tough. I did terribly in my first year. Yet through asking questions, learning the ropes and pure determination I went from a 3rd class degree to a 2:1. This inspired my first award winning book, "What They Don't Tell You about University", (which got published when I was at Law School). The sequel, "What They Don't Tell You When You Graduate" followed and is packed with crucial advice for the new graduate! I've given advice to the masses through The Telegraph, BBC radio and London Live. My speaking engagements range from educational institutions to corporates to government departments.
