Hey Blog Buds!! I had intended to be a little more prolific this year . . . and still hope to get on a more regular writing schedule. I am even farther behind on reading my favorite blogs, so if I haven’t visited in a while, I will first chance I get . . . missing reading what you are thinking about these days!
But I have been distracted in ways I wasn’t expecting. First I had Nanowrimo in November. Then we had the holidays, and I was still working the novel. Then, I must admit, I was a bit in a mindfuck . . . I could go into that deep, but not going to. Not prudent and over it. Now, we are knee-deep into March . . . where in the world has the time slipped away to??
I have been busy. I started a new job, though it is so far out of the box, that I am shocked, and a little uneasy regarding if I am making the right decisions. We met with this financial advisor (YES a free dinner was involved at a VERY nice place). Funny thing, we really liked his product. BUT, because of our circumstances, he advised that this was not a good time to do this, because we might need the money we were considering investing. (I had already decided that, but was happy that he was on the same page.)
For whatever reason, this guy – who does QUITE well for himself – took an interest in us and I guess a shining to me, and has offered me a job as his office manager as he builds his business on this side of town, and has also paid for my study materials and is paying for the testing for my license certification to help him sell insurance products. Or more to the point, to get commissions and residuals from any policies I have a hand in selling, even if I just set the appointment.
This guy is really down to earth, though I know from what I can see that he makes a lot of money AND for whatever reason thinks I can assist him in growing his business and provide me an opportunity to make commissions that could be quite lucrative in the long run. Right now, I am making very little, but it is more than I was making last week. The drive is less than 10 minutes away, and smack dab in the middle of one the most prestigious marinas in our area. I rarely have to dress up, and the atmosphere is totally laid back.
My husband and I think this might be a great opportunity, and it’s not like anyone else is beating down my door. I have never done anything like this before, so not even sure I am going to like it or be as good at it as my new mentor thinks I will be. Like I said, I’m not sure about it, but for now am giving it my all and studying to get my license.
Changing the subject, I watched Bill Maher Friday night, listening to his panel’s back and forth about Hillary Clinton’s email – come on, they can read every email I write if they want and if you think they weren’t already honed in on the server Clinton.com – you are a fool, because their server would definitely elicit more interest than many others. What do you think about this “hot button?”
My goodness, the people in Washington D.C. spend more time building little fires that they can squirt lighter fluid on to incite what they consider the “commoners” – I always wonder what else is going on when this crap happens . . . I always feel it’s a distraction from what we should all really be focusing on.
Just some things I was thinking about . . .
