I am not a salesperson. I don’t sell. But I do help people. I’ve seen Utility Warehouse change people's lives. On the one hand we save people money on their bills but also I’ve watched people blossom with my help and support, as they grow their own businesses and grow in their own confidence.
I feel proud and passionate about the work that I do, and seeing it make a difference to other people’s lives is both rewarding and humbling. I came out of a fairly faceless corporate world, where I wasn’t recognised or appreciated, where stress was part of my every day life to the point that, as a senior manager, I faced a suspected heart-attack on my 40th birthday. It was right there, right then that I knew that this was my life and I had to live it! There HAD to be a different way.
Today, I get paid when I’m sick, when I’m lying on the beach, when I’m spending time with my friends and family. Utility Warehouse gives me time to do the things that are important to me - to work with charities and give something back to my community.
If you are looking for a realistic alternative to the rat-race, come and talk to me. Never get so caught up in making a living that you forget to make a life.
