All I can say right now is
GOD BLESS AMERICA!
Where else in the world can someone (namely me, a woman entrepreneur over 50) still be able to carve out an entrepreneurial existence? Probably only right here, in the good old U.S .of A., that’s where. You see, I’m an entrepreneur but I’ve been looking for a “real” job for the past two months by sending out tons of resumes for office work with only two, count them, TWO, calls back for interviews.
“Ok, fine. Whatever. I’m not going to take it personal.”
I know I’m qualified and experienced to do a whole host of jobs, including, but not limited to: teacher, office manager, business owner, bookkeeper, and writer. Regardless of a call back however,
I STILL NEED TO SURVIVE!
So, amidst the constant checking on Craigslist and Monster, I’ve also been marketing myself and my unique abilities in the hopes of producing an income. I thank God for my entrepreneurial mind, my resourcefulness, tenacity, and belief in my abilities because
TODAY I HIT THE JACKPOT!
All three business’ of mine got work.
1) This morning my Story Train www.thestorytrain.com educational company got hired by a private school
2) I just got hired to paint a kitchen through my home renovation company, Shwen-o-vations, and
3) I got hired to perform ( www.sharenwendy.com ) on an ongoing schedule at an upscale retirement/assisted living facility.
So tell me, where else but in America would I be able to do this? Where else is it still possible for hard work, ingenuity, and some luck, to produce an income?
I may not be making millions of dollars like you hear about in those rags to riches stories, but I am able to put food on my table and pay my bills, legally and respectfully.
No one told me how to do this. There isn’t a “motivational guru” cheering me on other than the voice in my own head telling me to believe in myself, my abilities, and to just never, ever give up……ever.
