Still choosing to be my own boss.

I know, I have been MIA for a while.  Been extremely busy, which I am in no way complaining because me being busy is a great thing.   I have been sending several letters to various real estate and property management companies to try and get my foot in the door for their cleaning of rentals and foreclosures.  Surprisingly there are not many companies that are competing for that business.  On the other hand, the money is not like cleaning for residential customers.  Banks are hesitant to pay to have a home presentable for viewing and property management companies try and have their own crew.  Although I have been told by several property managers that it may change here soon.  It all boils down to good pay for good work or you get what you pay for. So we shall see how this pans out.

I have toyed with the idea of maybe looking for a second job.  However, seeing the classifieds recently, I have to come to a conclusion that unless you are scouting through the health care job listings, you are not going to find employment anytime soon. I actually laughed out loud when I opened up the classifieds and literally just looked through not even half of page for general labor or administrative and that was in Sunday's paper. 

Now if you have any type of medical experience, there was a slew of those.  I don't have the patience for nursing. I would be an awful nurse.  Yes, I am a compassionate person but I have many buttons that many people have pushed and well.... nope I would make a terrible nurse.  Now I could be a billing code specialist but realistically how well does that pay? I have heard horror stories in that field.  Same with a medical transcriptions.  Besides, I don't have the time nor money to go back to school right now for a career change.  There is already two in this household that is working on  furthering their education in hopes of securing some kind of job in the future. 

Nope, I will just stay the course and persevere in my business.  I like being my own boss and interacting with the customers and I like the freedom to schedule or not to schedule on certain days, its liberating.
