An insightful chat with Financial Planner Paulina Worthington
Paulina admits she is a people person. She started out when she relocated to the UK with a career in accounting.
She has done so much training and achieved an enormous list of qualifications. She has experience in accounting, finance, law and insurance. But she defined her goal of working for herself pretty early on.
She started out in business as a St. James Place representative in February 2020. Right smack bang at the beginning of the COVID pandemic. She has approached it with such positivity and used everything that has been thrown at her as a learning experience and offers her services online.
She dreamed of working for herself so she could reach her full potential. She loves that in working for herself, she gets to decide. She’s knows what she’s capable of and wants to go for it and doesn’t want to be held back by working for someone else.
“We really need to have self confidence. There are so many people out there who will put you down. If you don’t have faith in yourself then who will?”
She has an amazing story of moving to the UK at 18 years old with £100 in her pocket.
We chat about what she has found challenging about being in business and what success looks like to her.
It’s definitely one to watch – grab a cuppa and join Paulina and I for our chat.
She was recommended to attend MPWR networking events and join the membership. Here’s what she has to say about it:
“It’s all about business, let’s not forget the fact that it’s about business, however, people were relaxed, they shared their experiences, not just in terms of the business but also personally. I found that really refreshing. You didn’t need to have a pitch. I don’t like a pitch as it’s just a bit rigid and unnatural, I think it’s important for people to get to know me as a person, where I come from and MPWR is a perfect platform for it.”
“Just having somewhere to share tips, ask how your week has been, getting advice. It’s a great platform to do that.”
