Hi my name is Jennifer and I am the founder of Smart Laptop Lifestyle.
I am a Life Coach, Affiliate Marketer, Entrepreneur and I have worked in Criminal Justice Substance Misuse sector as a group facilitator and one to one coach for over 15 years, I have also worked in rehabs and children and young people’s homes. This is the short version.
This is My Why
I will start with a little bit more of a background about me.
As a child I was very good at creating things with my hands and I had dreams of creating something and working for myself for as long as I could remember and I am talking primary school age (7 – 11 years old).
But I was always made to feel that this was not possible for a person like me. (What a load of rubbish).
You see when it came to school work I was a slow learner right up in to senior school. I could talk a good talk but when it came to expressing it in my school work, well that was another story.
For some reason I would imagine it and talk about it but writing it down on paper was a really big challenge.
Because of this was made to feel dumb like I was thick and couldn’t be taught.
This is not to say that I didn’t like my school days because I actually loved school in a whole it was just my school work I had a problem with. LOL.
I later realised that it was not that I could not be taught or learn it was more that I wasn’t interested in what they were attempting to teach me.
I also didn’t like the fact that some of the teachers made me feel like I was somehow learning challenged putting it nicely.
Going to University
After working many years in administration and being made redundant many times I started reading more books that interested me and to cut a long story shorter.
I was accepted into Goldsmiths University which I thought was funny because most of the brightest kids in my school didn’t even try and a lot of my friends seemed very surprised that I got in.
Anyway I studies psychology and sociology in my first year and then went onto taking Sociology for my BA with Hons.
To my surprise this is where I found out that I had Dyslexia which I thought was great news because now I knew that I just had a different way of learning.
At this point I could type faster than I could write all those years in admin and I learned that when I wrote with pen and paper my brain worked faster than my fingers and this was a big problem for me in terms of putting things down on paper.
I am also a very visual person and this means that I see many things in images rather than word.
Anyway knowing this and learning about Dyslexia made my journey at university much easier. I got through it and passed. YAY.
So What Is My WHY?
In 2012 I lost my one and only son Marlon Anthony Campbell aged 23 years old to gun crime and this left me numb for a few years.
Before I lost my son we were working on branding his music career whilst working on starting my own business.
He would help me with my business ideas and I would help him. We were a team and both ready to make this happen.
So when I lost him this stopped me in my track because what was the point now.
What was in it for me now?
I had lost my WHY.
I had lost my SON.
I had lost my Future.
I was lost.
I had GIVEN UP…
Not just on our dreams but everything else.
I would often say to myself what is the point?
I tried for many years it seemed to try and find a why and seriously I couldn’t.
I Had To Start Coaching Myself
I had to start coaching myself and all the tools that I had learned with regards to find a solution, well I had to dig deep with this one.
I attended approximately 24 weeks of counselling sessions in two sets about three years apart.
So that would be approximately two lots of 12 sessions.
To be honest they were really nice counsellors and help me in many ways but finding a why NO. They couldn’t help with that.
Because honestly they didn’t understand me.
This is not to say that counselling session don’t work but in my case they didn’t.
But I would recommend them for anyone struggling.
So at the end of these sessions I was still left with me.
If there was going to be a change I had to make that change.
Here’s what you and I know, one year from today you will certainly arrive.
The question is where?
That is your decision to make right now.
This is Another Turning Point
I have always wanted to run my own business for as long as I can remember, but ended up doing what was expected of me and stopped following my dream.
Although I enjoyed the jobs that I have done I still wanted more and preferred doing contract work as to having a permanent job.
Throughout the years I found myself looking and searching for ways to become financially free without doing a 9 to 5 job.
I always knew that they was a way of making money online, I just did not know how and where to start. I had seen programs advertised that said that they would teach me how to create a business online but the cost was something that I was not prepared to pay.
I knew there was a way that I could at least get started with my online business for free but the ones that I tried only took me so far and then I would get stuck with no-one to help me move forward and grow.
I wanted to learn how to do it.
How I Found My Solution
After years of looking and searching I came across Wealthy Affiliate.
I am really excited about this website because I get to show you how to do what I have done and what I am doing.
Why I Want To Help YOU
I awaken and started to think about my dreams and my son’s dreams and what we had started.
I then started to also think about all the things that I have told my clients in the past and how I would encourage them to keep going and not to give up on life.
I then started researching how I could get started online and how I could create my online business.
I wanted to get started online because I realised that this was the best way for me.
I love helping people and I have been doing this for many years.
I was fortunate to find Wealthy Affiliate and to this day I wake up excited and full of hope because now I have all the tools to live my dreams.
I can create my next chapter.
I am creating my next chapter and the next and the next.
I can now help other people young and old
I am now helping young people
I am now helping the more mature people
I am now helping broken people
Those people that feel left behind
Those people with a dream
