Deciding what I want to be when I grow up is proving quite challenging. You see I am a Jill of all trades and mistress of none, at least that’s how it feels.
So Many Ideas But Only One Me
I have a million and one ideas to make the world a better place. I encourage, inspire, empower, and give swift kicks in the pants, but my focus is like a shadowy figure in the dark, bah!!!
Is it Blog Consulting?
Today I helped someone decide how to set up their new Twitter account. We went through the best name, how to set up their profile so they can be found, and discussed the best method to build up a following. We talked Twitter lists, hashtags, and engagement.
The conversation morphed into the importance of choosing a niche to be relevant and a front runner. The internet space is getting pretty crowded so it’s important to be yourself and be different.
From there we talked about the purpose of a blog in this day and age. It’s not about throwing up a diary, the latest recipes, or weekend escapades. A blog is an extension of business, a place to build relationship and expertise.
I was encouraged to be a blog advisor or consultant. The truth is, I am that, unofficially. I really love helping people figure it all out and seeing their work published in the big wide world.
With all of that, I am still feeling the pang of wanting to specialize but not wanting to be stuck in a box. I honestly can never do what others are doing. I must be different, unique, special. The alternative is so….boring!
Is it Corporate Quality and SharePoint Consulting?
During the day I work in Corporate Quality as a Document Controller. I create records, write procedures, and manage the department SharePoint site.
At night I write,
stalk seek out new clients, and surf the internet. I also manage my church’s website and do a bit of consulting.
If nothing else, I can say I’m an expert at multi-tasking. I will hire extra hands soon to help me get the work done and I will develop my processes.
In the meantime, I will enjoy the variety in my life and live with no regrets. My only wish is to do work I love and be handsomely paid for it. Soon young grasshopper…soon…
