When I left my job back in February, I had hopes of starting my own professional organizing business. I've had a couple people ask how it's going, so I guess an update is in order.
How is it going? Well... it's not. I've decided not to pursue the business. While I would love *doing* the organizing work, *getting* the organizing work would be a totally different matter. I would need to market my services, which would involve two activities I'm absolute CRAP at: selling and networking. I hate selling and I will always suck at networking, so every minute spent on such activities would be very unpleasant.
Instead, I will try to re-enter the real world and get an office job. I don't mind the thought of going to work, though I hope I can avoid a long commute and committing nearly 11 hours a day to my job. I would love to find a job that doesn't take over my life.
Unfortunately, I put off my return trip to reality too long, and now I'm completely out of touch. I'm struggling to get myself together enough to look for a job and possibly be ready for an interview. But I can't go without income for much longer. I have to get back to reality soon!
