There and Back Again
Last Update: Oct 25, 2014
When I first started with WA, I was between jobs and had plenty of time to devote to it. I got a wonderful part-time job, caring for an elderly woman in her home. It provided enough to squeak by financially, while - I thought - building my WA business. Recently, however, I got another temporary job that pays fairly well, and takes up all the rest of my time and energy. I've been working 120+ hour weeks for the last two weeks, and will be working around 90 while I'm doing the two jobs going forward. That leaves little to no oomph for working on my website.
Ultimately, I don't want to have to worry about when the next temp job will come up, nor do I enjoy punching that timeclock. For now, I'm coming here and reading success stories, reminding myself that I can do this - eventually - and writing as I have time and synapses available. I still believe WA will be able to do for me what these temp jobs can't, but it's nice to be able to pay my bills and put a little aside for the next "between jobs" period. You know, that period when I can get back to THIS again!
For me, just coming and seeing your encouraging stories, and seeing what a great community of help and encouragement WA provides, is my "success story." One of these days, there will be more to show for it!
