Anywho, I'm back to being jobless. I HATE this! Been using Monster.com to find jobs, but I feel somehow like its cheating, as if sending resumes and coverletters electronically is worthless. I feel like I should be sending a hard copy to these people. On the other hand, all the people DID ask for resumes to be sent to their generic "jobs@" type email addresses.
I dunno. I just used to LOVE what I was doing. Now, I'm back to square one. Too scared to start my own business cause both my hubby and I are unemployed (he worked at the same place!) and too scared to move to where there are some jobs. I've lived in Erie for most of my years and I hate to leave but there is absolutely nothing here. *sigh*
If anything it can be a great chance to learn new skills.
If you don't already have a site the Google sandbox might be a problem on getting a site up and profitable but possibly you could find a site to buy on a topic you love.
If you haven't, you should spend time reading the Adsense forum.
When I was employed, I often thought of starting a site, but after working 8+ hours a day, I really didn't feel like coming home and doing more work. Don't get me wrong, I loved what I did but I hardly wanted to do it ALL day long. Unfortunately, I'm finding that some places, not all, but enough to notice, want to see a portfolio. I can't blame those companies. It makes good sense. I just wish I'd have had more ambition earlier so that I'd have a decent portfolio online right now.
I'll let you know how it goes!
the early bird gets the worm
good things come to those who wait
don't put all your eggs in one basket
don't burn your bridges
when life gives you lemons make lemonade
A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush
don't count your chickens before they're hatched
nothing ventured nothing gained
you have to break a few eggs to make an omelet
keep your nose to the grindstone
the squeaky wheel gets the grease
mind your p's and q's
keep your shoulder to the wheel
go the extra mile
pay attention to details
take your fate into your own hands
keep a stiff upper lip
you can catch more flies with honey than with vinegar
a journey of a thousand miles begins with the first step
necessity is the mother of invention
whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger
shoot the breeze
see the world through rose colored glasses
put a little elbow grease into it
haste makes waste
keep your eyes peeled
a good beginning makes a good ending
never put off until tomorrow what you can do today
