--Learning to be proud of being an imperfect perfectionist


Fun, easy going, keen to learn, loving life, open, wanting to meet people, someone that I can connect with and have in-depth conversations with.
Someone who is different and who won't settle to the standard life that society seems to dictate to us.
Self-motivation, willingness to learn, respect for everyone and can work together as a team.
I believe anyone can do anything with the right guidance and environment – So if you believe the same then that’s perfect :)
(All I ask is that you respect and are considerate to everyone around us and that you keep what you use clean and tidy)

I am crazy - I tend to go in extreme directions. I have big dreams and great determination. I like to move quickly but I am also a perfectionist and procrastinator. I will get knocked down but I will get up and keep on going. Some nights I just won’t sleep due to the excitement of the next project and some days I will simply forget to eat due to the goal at hand. Other times I will get knocked down and I will struggle to get back up (I am learning to take this time to allow my body and spirit to catch up). Yes some people view it all as chaos but I just call it growth and development.
I say all of this because I want us all to understand that we are all on our own journeys and we must acknowledge what our own journey is and stay in tune with that. Please make sure that you don’t get caught up in my chaos – Its ok to step back and keep your routines etc. Just because I am still working or not eating etc. doesn't meant that you have to do the same.
Please understand that I will do my very best to be one of the team. But please also remember that I have to keep driving everything forward with the bigger picture in mind. This being research and development of all the projects, networking, paying the bills and making sure that everyone is happy including all our helpers, neighbors, Business partners, Counsel etc. All while trying to create the environment and cash flow to make this dream become reality.
I personally need to have a break from everything every now and again - so I am also looking for someone to take over for me when I am not around - This will include making sure that everyone is happy, making sure that everything is ticking along as normal for the community, property and businesses while communicating with everyone and myself.

Please voice any concerns you have within the environment and we will address them as well as we can. I really want there to be great respect between everyone in our environment.
If things aren't working out for anyone then no hard feelings - you are very welcome to discuss any issues or continue with your travels. I really want to make sure that everyone is happy as a team :)
Please let me know what skills you have in relation to our projects and also what your keen on learning and we will see what we can work in.
