The Great 2011 Job Hunt...
Later today I plan on checking out a few temp services to see what they have available. This is probably the worst time in the world to look for a job outside the house, but I'm patient. I'm opting for professional attire instead of a church key and server's book this time around. Something with benefits that will challenge my brain Monday through Friday and leave time on the weekends and evenings to continue the things that I love to do. Writing the web content, selling on Ebay, designing the websites and selling at the flea markets. Those things are extremely important to me because they are... well... me.
It's a big decision that can't be taken lightly and will push time management to the extreme. But I've been setting everything up to go in this direction for a few weeks now by pulling the writing listings off of Ebay and writing strictly for two broker websites to see how I like it. In all reality I'm wondering now why I didn't do it that way from the beginning. Hindsight can be a funny thing sometimes and provide a few eureka moments every now and then. I should have been charging more all along and will remember that for the future. No wonder I was always so busy, I sold myself short in more ways than one on more than one occasion. UGH! Live and learn I guess and I won't be making that mistake again anytime soon to say the least.
We will see how this all pans out. First thing I have to do is get my resume put back together to see just how bad I've screwed it up over the past 5 years by going from a desk job to bartending and waiting tables full time. I can sell myself if I can get through the door, but getting through the door is definitely the challenge. I'm up for a good challenge. It's been a while since I've seen one this worthy of the energy and I'm extremely excited about it. Bring it on and let's get this started. It's Spring, time for change and time to expand the horizons.
Happy Tuesday my friends!
