Homeless, depressed, suicidal and illiterateLife was tough for Joyce, who found herself homeless and with no prospects of a better life. But she managed to go against the odds and become a successful businesswoman.

I came from a very troubled and difficult childhood, so bad that I was unable to go to school. I got older, had children and was always fighting one problem from the next, that I didn’t have time to invest in learning. When my relationship broke down, I become depressed and ended up living on the streets.  Because of all this, many times I felt like ending my life. Because of my children, I kept on fighting for something better. I eventually got work in a salon but still, my life wasn’t moving forward. Homeless, depressed, suicidal and illiterate

I was invested to the Universal Church, to the Strong Nation meetings. I did feel much better there but as you know, feelings come and go. I need financial stability! As I heard testimonies about the transformations experienced by those who took these meeting seriously, I decided that I had nothing to lose and so did the same.

I became a faithful tither and also took part in campaigns of faith. After putting everything into practice, god did the amazing in my life.  I don’t know how to read or write, but I managed to open up my own business in the hairdressing industry.  Since then, I’ve gone from strength to strength.

Today I am a boss employing people who read and write much better than me!

How to become a professional wanted by companies?

Having a degree from a good institution and many years of experience are not enough to get a job. Do you know what sets a good professional apart? The answer seems simple: attitude. The manager of human resources Marcos Antônio de Souza Júnior explains, “Today the biggest difficulty for companies is finding professionals who have the competence tripod formed by knowledge, skill, and attitude. Knowledge is at hand; ability comes with time and practice, but the attitude is related to personality.”

According to him, many professionals stay out of the job market because of their attitude. 

“There are people who even give results, but they are arrogant, individualistic, they retain knowledge and do not know how to work as a team. They are people who do not like to receive feedback and usually say phrases like “it’s my way, I’m not going to change.” Marcos Antonio affirms that professionals with a “negative attitude” can affect the performance of the entire team. “Today we spend more time at work than at home. Therefore, it is very important to have a good organizational climate. Happy employees are more motivated and tend to produce more.” He points out that very pessimistic and explosive professionals are often scorned in organizations. Staying in the comfort zone is also a detrimental attitude to personal and professional life, warns Ircley.
