Hi everyone,After attending Innovate just 2 short months ago, I was working hard on my side hustle when I just found out this morning I was let go from my government position. I wasn't given a very specific reason other than my lack of communication with other coworkers (actually, there was only one person I didn't get along with. But office politics prevailed and I'm out.). I don't want to dwell on it. What's done is done.But I'm in a total state of shock right now. I don't know what to do. I…See More

Ever Wanted to Write for Chicken Soup for the Soul?

I don't know if anyone has posted here or not, but I want to pass this on. It looks like the CS4TS peeps are looking for a boatload of submissions for new titles. They are covering a wide range of topics from blended families, to Canada, cats, and dogs. I am currently working on my own submission and hope some of you will join me!http://www.chickensoup.com/story-submissions/possible-book-topicsSee More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard of this community through the 48 Days book back in 2011. I love the fact this is a supportive, non-judgmental place to bounce ideas off people and to meet other folks who want to make their work fun and profitable.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I have a master's in French literature and teaching credentials. I work for my State government and I have my own freelance translation/editing/writing business (Indigo Prairie Press & Writing Services) on the side.

And I recently started the Plus One Woman blog to help single plus-sized women navigate the curves of life, solo!
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
The dream is to be location independent, writing, editing, and loving life.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
On advice from my attorney I plead the Fifth Amendment to avoid self-incrimination...

KIDDING! :D
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
Gallup says I am Input, Empathy, Intellection, Developer and Context. On the DISC scale, I am a very high C, a high S and a low D and I. I am in the process of unpacking what the means :)

Basically I like language and all the gifts it brings. Whether it's translating, creating my own content, or helping someone refine their words to get their message across, the power of words is where it's at & where I love to be!

Random fun facts: I have double jointed elbows and can recite all the British monarchs from memory.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.indigo-prairie.com, PlusOneWoman.com
Are you interested in finding a better job, starting a business, growing your current business, writing a book, blogging, podcasting, coaching, speaking, sales & marketing, or something else?
Blogging, editing, and more blogging!
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I help single, plus-size women navigate the curves of life solo!
