This post is probably not that entertaining, but I am too busy being terrified to entertain. I just quit my job this afternoon. I know, all of you are probably thinking I lost my mind (I did, but that was a long time ago and has nothing to do with quitting my job). Actually, it is the first step in a long, thought-out plan that will hopefully work out the way I want.
From the time Libby was born until two years ago, I was a marketing consultant. I worked with a variety of different clients handling primarily public relations, Web marketing and editorial assignments. I got tired of consulting and decided to return to a full-time position.
Now, here it is, 2 years later and I have decided I miss consulting and want to go back to it. I started thinking about it in June. During that time, I have contacted many of my former clients, bosses and coworkers. I have a few prospects, but only one definite client (who doesn't have a lot of budget for marketing). maybe I can become a professional blogger (he he he).
So, you are probably asking yourself, why on earth would I quit my job now (I keep asking myself that too). I have discovered that I haven't had a lot of time to dedicate to my new venture because I have been spending most of my time working or taking care of the kids. So I decided to just jump off the bridge (let's hope there is someone there to catch me).
Right now, I am alternating between excited and terrified. I am excited about the potential but terrified by the loss of income. If you know of anyone who needs marketing assistance, you can check out my Web site at http://www.albaneseconsultinggroup.com/ or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. If not, wish me luck and have hopeful thoughts for me. I am embarking on quite a roller coaster ride.
