So, I’ve lost myself in my work, but not for long…

So, I have been on the job 5 weeks and wow. Every second of the day I am busy texting, emailing and calling, so I have no extra time. I squeeze in a call with my honey before and after work and a tiny bit in between but I have no time to write. That…

So, don’t you hate it when you are smarter than who you work for? (let’s change that!)

So, I am a smart lady. Not Einstein level, but I have a pretty good balance of book and street smarts. I don't have to drone on about how many degrees I have because education doesn't = intelligence. I know people with no formal education who are very successful. They either have mega experience, or…

So, a lot is going on and times are tough! Steps to overcome it all…

So, the last couple of weeks have equaled: broken laptop, iPad that isn't keeping a charge, 550 dollar car repair, end of my main source of income (soon), new gig delayed by 6-8 weeks. In summation... LIFE           IS                  HARD!!! But in my…

So, if you are truly miserable at work, these are reasons to go elsewhere…

So, if you are like me and have definite job dissatisfaction and feel that you are not only getting paid a lot less than you are worth, but your efforts are being sabotaged constantly, then you may want to get the heck out of dodge to a place that will make you happy. After all,…

So, why would you hire someone with expertise and not use it? Pride or stupidity?

So, I work for this person and she drives me effing crazy. She constantly adds to the laundry list of things that she has for me to do. And she asks in a round about way how to improve things and when I tell her in different and diplomatic ways, she never takes my advice…

So, in matters of moolah, I don’t want to play nice, but I often still do…

So, have you ever worked for an individual or a non-profit, or had your own small business? If you have, you can attest to the fact that there are benefits to going smaller, in other words, not working for a big company or business. You know, the whole thing about getting to perform multiple tasks…

So, I am all blase’ about what to do for work…

So, I have 2 freaking Master's and can't land/keep a professional job. Is it because I am not smart enough or talented enough? No. It is because I live in a highly competitive area, so much so that there are more people with advanced degrees than anywhere else in the country. The young 20 something…

So, it is a shame when I would rather work with pets or animals versus…

I for the last 12 years have either worked with children or animals. I have been a nanny, home teacher, tutor, after school provider etc. I have also done pet sitting and dog walking. No matter how many degrees I have, I would rather work with these populations than working with adults. I mean of…

So, I can plan parties 3 months ahead of time and help fix others’ problems, so why do I not fix…

My job situation?? I have been caring for kids in some way/shape or form for 12 years straight. I also have a part-time job that I do from home that I am grateful for, but I am not happy with it. It isn't a lot of money and it is not fulfilling my dreams. It…
