Chanèle McFarlane: Full-Time Entrepreneur (Writer, Speaker, PR Specialist & More)!!

Ever thought of becoming a full-time entrepreneur? I first met Chanèle at a networking event she hosted and I immediately loved her personality and hard work.

Late last year, while scrolling through my Instagram feed, she announced that she had decided to become a full-time entrepreneur.

I’ve had readers request that I feature someone who’s turned an idea to business. So one of my goals is to have some full-time entrepreneurs share their stories for workers who want to go that route.

The Changing Job Market: What Your Employer Thinks About You

Over time, one thing that has been understood about the job market and workplace, in general, is that many people are in fear. Fear of losing their jobs. The fear of not being good enough for a job or being incompetent.

There is also the fear of failing to meet deadlines. Fear of asking for a raise or a promotion. And if you’re an employee, sometimes the fear of what your employer thinks about you.

The job market is fierce and in this day and age, competition has never been greater. Businesses are evolving due to the changes in multiple technologies and the huge internet penetration.

The Changing Job Market: An Immigrant’s Story

While contemplating becoming an immigrant in Canada, I decided to move for several reasons and if I’m being honest, I had to consider whether my career will still be in line. 

Thankfully, I was already certain that I didn’t want to go ahead with practicing law so that was out of the way – no need for re-evaluation, articulation, re-examination, re-qualification and believe me, I was excited.

But choosing a career also bothered me a great deal. I didn’t want to start one that I will detest, another life where I feel trapped in a career that I didn’t enjoy and I knew would dwindle in the long run. One where I felt like I wasn’t making use of my passions and talents.

Work & Health: 3 Areas To Focus On

As the saying goes, you should work to live rather than live to work. This is a fundamental philosophy that, no matter what job you are doing, should be a basis for how you approach your working life.

Work is good, beneficial, and enriches you, but your focus should always be on making the most of your entire life on a holistic level. Work is part of the picture; not the only object in the frame.

That Love-Hate Relationship of the 9-5

Don’t get me wrong, sometimes I don’t understand the whole concept of the 9-5 life too. I’m like, who the hell thought this was worth it? How did they come to accept this?

Whoever the ‘they’ is or are.

How was this even the drill and how does it continue to be?

Don’t ever think I’ve got it all figured out. For Christ’s sake, I’m a millennial and I figure the whole ‘misconception’ applies to me too. Millennials can’t sit still. Millennials are impatient. Millennials this. Millennials that.

Looking for a Big Business Opportunity? Consider Global Logistics

When we think big business, we need to think on an international scale. If you’re supplying business to a single city, country or even continent, then you’re thinking too small.

If you really want to attract some big names to work together with you, then you need to think about what makes businesses operate and what’s in demand for every company, not just a certain industry.
