I’m a Magnet
In 2006 I lost my job of 18 years. I affirmed that, even though painful and frightening, good things would come from this unexpected event.
The next spring I learned about The Secret and started applying it to my life. Although it sounded strange at first, I added, I am a money magnet to my list of suggested affirmations.
I spent a few months looking for a job, and gradually shifted to starting a business as a writing and editing consultant for companies involved in training and development. I started out with a few small projects and with each one was inspired by other writers and editors to raise my rates until they began to reach a decent level. I started believing I could be a magnet for good things, including money.
In January 2007, I sent a marketing email to a potential client who responded with a project that was like nothing I ever guessed might exist writing stories about performance improvement efforts made by and for nurses in a hospital. An enormous quantity of documentation would be submitted to a nurse credentialing organization. If accepted, the hospital could continue to be recognized as having excellent leadership and in so doing attract excellent nurses – like a magnet. And so I began seven months of writing and editing wonderful stories about the efforts of nurses at this hospital, working with three wonderful women employed by the hospital, and being paid well for my efforts.
You may have guessed it by now – I was hired to write for a Magnet Recognition Program. My clients were thrilled with my work and strongly encouraged me to do more Magnet consulting in the future.
