Reversal of Fortune

September 26, 2008

Another quick update.

Seems I was not destined for this job, because now I have lost it. They treated my like crap from day one and never even trained me properly.

I hung in there best I could and considering I have loads of experience in the field, I had to adjust to the new merchandise and way of doing things-especially short handed.

I completely lacked any get up and go and dreaded going there. Really. And it started to show as I went to work late day after day. I found it difficult to concentrate and focus. Then, they used that against me and gave me the sack…lol Guess I gave them the rope to hang me with, sort of speak.

Lovely.

Now back to square one, searching for yet another shtty job. Really need to find my muse and get things rolling.

I do have some great ideas and can even go into a business with someone. She already has a great product and a decent customer base. She just wants some marketing help and maybe some sales leads on my end. Advertising and whatnot. This I have experience doing, so no real problem there.

Perhaps this is what I have been looking for. Little to no cost to get in, and most of the hard work is already done!

Well, time to move on and see where this takes me. I have other ideas and just need to get off my ass and do it, especially since I can’t seem to hold a J.O.B. anymore. I really feel I have reached a point in my life, where I just don’t want to be told what to do. More and more I find discomfort in being told how to do my job by others who have never done it, or even care. They just want results no matter how it affects you.

Well, enough of that! Next J.O.B. I get will for sure be non retail. YUCK. Retail sucks. I really want to find something I can do from home, but there are SO many scams out there.

I did learn a lesson and am following it through-I still have my emergency fund. It is not much, but it is still there. And kept my cell paid to stay in contact with possible prospects and of course family and friends..lol

On to bigger and better things!

*J.O.B. = Just Over Broke

Quick update..

Just a quick update…

Got a new job! I thought that they would call, and they did! Cool. Decent pay, but better hours. Have since gotten my first check from them…NICE! Hard work though…and short staffed in the beginning. But has gotten better.

Much motivation to get outta the rat race! But for now..it is what it is.

Actually have started my emergency fund! Yeah! $50. Not the worst and not the best..but a start. And enough left over to pay my carfare for the month, cell phone, and storage fees. Fridge is stocked and things are looking good.

I am still sending out resumes, and have found some good contacts as well. Just have to stay on track and not let go of my dreams.

Better get some sleep before i start to drift and ramble..lol

More to come …

Working on it..

August 19, 2008

Just been busy last few days. Usual stuff that i should, and will be batching….laundry, food shopping, etc. Even put some stuff into storage to make space. Been a couple of good days. Got stuff done, productive stuff. And that is always good news.

Going to start breaking down my spending habits, since one of my goals is to have $1500 + to move down south. And have a really good job and/or new source of income to support myself. If i don’t watch the nickels, the dollars wont take care of themselves. Must work on my emergency fund too. Getting caught with your financial pants down is NO fun..lol

Will try and post my spending habits, so that others can compare. Room for improvement? Suggestions on lower prices? Batching ideas? Shopping tips? Open to all.

Well, i better get some sleep. Good news is just around the corner..

I can feel it 🙂
