If in this day and age you can be creative enough to come up with whatever name you want for your job, I switched from being a programmer to being a problem-fixer. In a nutshell, that’s what I do. I don’t enjoy programming things from scratch as much as I enjoy fixing bugs in faulty websites. The clients must pay really good money for it if they want it done right, and I’m the woman for the job.
The downside of this, despite loving what I do, is that I kind of lost sight of my personal life. I’m on the clock 24/7 and must respond to clients as fast as I can. Telling them I’m not available is not an option. My brain has also developed an interesting alert system for when I’m sleeping (yes, occasionally I do sleep) – I’m able to sleep through whatever noise my neighbors are making but when my phone beeps with a text alert, I jump out of bed as if I had springs under my butt.
I am very good and what I do and regular clients bring me more clients through referral. My client based is big enough for me to retire next year if I wanted, but I love too much what I do to think about it for now. The only problem with this lifestyle of interrupted sleep is my immune system stopped functioning properly. As the problem fixer that I am, I immediately pinpointed the causes so I could work on solving it and preventing it from happening again. That research led me to Chaga Earth’s organic Chaga tea. I had heard how it boosts the immune system and the list of active ingredients was attractive enough to make me try it.
So far, so good. I like the taste, I like that I can drink any time of day and still get energized without worrying about ingesting too much caffeine, and I particularly like how my immune system feels a lot stronger, even if I still keep crazy sleeping schedules.
