How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard about 48days.net from the 48 Days podcast. I hope to get encouragement and direction regarding my job search and career.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I am a former teacher, but was laid off in 2011. Since then, I have been underemployed as I have mainly been working temp jobs doing clerical work in offices. I am currently unemployed and have been so for the past two weeks.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I am a creative person and I love people. I have an idea for a couple of businesses. One is to provide and lead a craft project or projects for kids' birthday parties, girls night out parties, etc.
Another idea is to help people organize their photos (printed and digital). I could also create handmade scrapbook albums or digital albums that can be printed and bound professionally.
Other than that, I've thought about doing financial counseling (teaching people to budget, etc.), maybe becoming a therapist, graphic designer, or ???
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I struggle with obesity, and I believe this is the main reason for my struggle to find permanent employment.
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!)?
My strongest talents are in scrapbooking and crafts, singing, my friendly personality, computer skills, and written and verbal communication skills.
Clients, customers, and co-workers have all appreciated my smile and cheerful attitude, both in person and on the phone.
