About 1MR
Joined February 2014
I am a 33 year unemployed single mom. Looking to reinvent myself!

After 8 years of being employed with the same company doing something I enjoy, I ran into a salary cap. Not satisfied with facing a salary decrease for the rest of my life (aka rising healthcare), I looked for other opportunities and took a risk with another company that could have gone better. After 10 months, I was unemployed.

Since my unemployment in October 2013, I haven't sat still. I continue to to look for any sound opportunity I can find, including other jobs, different industries, school (Information Technology), and blogging.

As a single mom with a mortgage, I can't afford to sit still. Especially since my Unemployment Insurance has just run out.

I enjoy creative writing, digital scrap booking, and ministry outreach.

Wow! So I just read one of your blogs and came onto your profile to read your "story" and I am impressed... I really am because you have 4 amazing looking websites for being on WA for such a short time. This shows your work ethics and how badly you want it. I am sure you will get it one day with this type of attitude. I wish you nothing but the best.

A few of those were created before joining. But all of them created since October.

I've been blogging since 2009.... but not too seriously.

Thanks for the support. I needed that umph today!

Hi Beth, It is a worthy & hard battle educating ppl on any mental illness issue. Much is misunderstood about the mind (& brain as well for that matter). And yes (as I noticed below), god is 'not' a refuge in this mater. Keep up the good work my friend.
TerryAsh Premium
Those folks at www.youaresick.org should talk to www.jesusstillhealstoday.com because He has healed me from major depression & I shall NEVER EVER believe the enemy's lies again--NO NEVER! BTW, thanks for the return follow 1MR. You can do this, girl! My daughter is 35 & diagnosed with Bipolar when she was 12 going on 13. So I totally understand. BUT YOU CAN DO IT!!!
1MR Premium
Christians can still be depressed too. I don't believe you can heal depression, just control it. I created youaresick.org. I am a believer and still have struggles with depression. It is a hard situation!
hhendri3 Premium
Hey Beth - I just wanted to reach out because I was reading your post on Single Mom Reinvented about the "You don't work" attitude, and I really can relate!

I'm unemployed as well, and, like you, feel like I work harder now than I ever did with a full-time job. Recently, none other than my own boyfriend hit me with the "But you don't work" argument when I was wondering aloud if I had the time to take on yet another ambitious project. It really was discouraging. But all we can do is continue to work (yes, WORK) as much as possible until our goals are met, right?

Anyway, if you ever need a fellow UI recipient to complain with, my name is Holly. Good luck, and keep up the good work!
1MR Premium

I do appreciate the follow Beth, I will do likewise! I glanced at a couple of your website and must say I'm thoroughly impressed. You have an admirable talent for writing!

1MR Premium
I know. Thanks! I love the work. People keep saying slow down, and they're right. I just have so much motivation and I enjoy it. With Marci gone this weekend, the weather and having no cable... I will be in my office all weekend. Doesn't bother me. BUT I know I can't keep this schedule. Next week I have given myself Monday through Friday 9:00:3:20pm and maybe 2 hours over the weekend. Within this time I also have to get some homework done.

Thanks for your support!

I wrote out the exact steps I take to start a new website from scratch. This includes how I pick a niche, come up with content for the site, and monetize it. These are the EXACT strategies I use every day and I've been working for myself full-time since 2008. I know first hand that they work. :)

But only if you join in your first 7 days (this is what I call my "action takers" bonus).
