Back Again

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!

 

 

 

About Maureen, Living in a Van

I'm a free-sleeper living in a van in the prettiest part of the world. I do this partly due to financial circumstances and partly because I love a good adventure.

    I found this book on desert homesteading. It looks really good. This dude did it for under 500 bucks.

      I read through the first one, thanks. I think I would take a camper out there. I can’t imagine building a place all by myself. I guess I’m kinda lazy.
