U is for:
Bit of a funny one for today. I have always had a bit of a niggle about the unknown, which seems a little silly as it is, by definition, unknown. At this point in my life I feel that I’m at a metaphorical crossroads, I could go back down the road of being an employee or I could go down the road of trying to make an income for myself and working from home. I know I’ve written about this subject before, but it really is something that plays on my mind.
Currently I am feeling quite positive about building the income and working for myself, but I don’t really have a strategy in place for doing so. I’m dipping my toe into various different fields (virtual assistant, freelancer, marketeer) and seeing what sticks but, eventually, I will have to make a choice of which avenue to exploit and my fear of the unknown stops me deciding as I’m not confident I’ll be making the right choice whichever one I choose.
Ultimately I know that I will have to choose and hope for the best. Erica at Be a Mumpreneur wrote a good post about ‘The Doubt‘, which sort of sums up what I’m feeling about my working future. I’m more confident now that I have the skills to sell, but whether anyone will want to buy is another matter!
My plan of action when A-Z is finished is to concentrate on building a specific range of services and advertising them then, hopefully, an income will follow!
If you’d like to leave a comment offering me a cup of tea and some reassurance then the would be swell!
