Well, I am in the midst of trying to get direct business now since working at getting an employed job that will offer me a challenge is pretty soul-destroying. Although employers and agencies are not allowed to tell you I know from a number of applications without getting further that my age is a barrier.
It doesn’t help that a lot of my work has also been overseas and when it comes ro referees I furnish numbers and emails that are from various parts of the world. No problem with the personal refs howeverr, but for work….? – have to rely on testimonials and that doesn’t seem to cut it here.
So am designing a website and also a load of different ,,,,”this is what I did there” statements to see if that will help me get some work on contract and on self-employed basis. Need to look into funding, loans, insurances, equipment, etc – all such a pain in the butt, but (oops double butting!) also necessary.
As I have written bepoke training I think that perhaps a module or two might be good to put on my website. However, I do not want these stolen and used by others without reference to me and a payment – so now also need to look at copywriting a trining module and am thinking to compose an E-book as well – too many things going on in my mind and at the end of it all – will it offer me a decent living for now and an income for the future. Who knows but needs must so I need to try.
Ideas for progressing quickly much appreciated please.
