Get Up. Dress Up. Turn Up.
Wise words from my aunt that I thought I’d share. I’m trying to keep to it and it does work though it is not always easy.
My resolution to post on here more frequently has not gone quite to plan! There has been rather a lot going on, some good & some not so good and I didn’t want to end up writing any self-indulgent twaddle and inflicting that on the world. The saying that “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all” is possibly not the best for a blogger to live by.
So, the good things going on…. I’ve finally bitten the bullet, registered as self employed and am getting a wriggle on with setting up the business. I’ve done one mailshot already to people I’ve interviewed/applied for jobs with and I’m now compiling details for another two mailshots – one to go to local businesses and another to go to land-agents over a wider area. I’ve also registered my domain name, sorted out some hosting and met with a local web-designer to get that up and running. Fingers crossed.
The not so good things that have mainly been worrying about money – my job providing cover at a local Farm has come to an end and, although it is a foot in the door to provide holiday cover, etc and has given me lots of good contacts. I’ve been applying for part-time jobs but not even getting to interview because assumptions are made that I can’t possibly really want a part-time job so I’ll be off as soon as a full time job comes up. Frustrating.
I’ve just applied for a job in a local pub doing bar work as it will a) get some money coming in b) mean that I get out and socialise with people (a bit of a challenge when you have no money to go out!) and c) allow me to do a bit of networking.
Right. Break over, need to get back to searching the interwebs for companies to mailshot.
