I hope you all haven’t given up on me. I couldn’t get my blog to let me in to write something! I finally got ahold of my admin guy (he hosts this blog for me for free) and he said I had a bug and he fixed it for me. Whew! I thought this blog was finished AGAIN!
So, to catch you up on things with me, I am a total business woman now. I have learned a LOT in the last couple of months about marketing and I feel like I am going to get a lot accomplished in the next year. I have been going about this whole thing wrong up to now! I can’t go into detail because I don’t want to give away what I do but the key things I’ve learned about are positioning, creating and delivering value, and most importantly, FINDING OUT WHAT YOUR COMPETITION IS CHARGING. Yah that was a biggy. I don’t want to be the bargain basement service provider anymore. It doesn’t pay the bills. Knowing what others who do the same thing I do are charging gives me confidence to ask for the same money.
Also, I asked someone I know if they would rent me a room and she said yes…then she changed her mind within the hour. She says she likes her independence. I can relate to that. Sometimes seeing someone everyday gets on my nerves…and I would probably get on hers too. So…I was pretty close to not being a free-sleeper anymore.
I also looked at a really nice little apartment but the guy who owned it wants me to have good credit and I haven’t seen my credit report for a while but it’s probably not any better than it was three years ago. It’s not like I bought a car or used a credit card or anything. I don’t really intend to do anything else on credit ever again if I can help it so that leaves my credit in kind of a pickle doesn’t it? Nice trap they’ve set for everyone. Very clever. Imagine having that kind of monopoly on the world. Must be nice.
Sooooo I might be back to dreaming about owning a camper and living in that. I would have a car too for work etc. I think it might be okay.
That’s all I can think of for now. I get lots of ideas for writing while I’m working but when I sit down to write it all flies out the window. Oh well. Thanks for reading!
