Secret Option C

So, I appreciate your feedback about my work path.  I am just in limbo right now.  I am still bringing the girls with me to work as we continue to liquidate (which, btw, is a longer process than I expected) and I am still getting paid.  I do have unemployment lined up, just in case because that's just who I am.. Always trying to prepare for every situation. 

For the last couple of weeks, I have been working on what I am calling 'secret option c'.  If I take anything away from my experiences, here at work, it would be learning that you can make a career out of practically thin air-IF you have the right tools. 

Here are my tools (in none other than bulleted format):
  • I am a violinist.  I have 22 years experience.
  • I am, imo, computer savvy
  • I have what it takes to be an independent contractor
  • I am very motivated
With these tools, my hope is to start a new career.  I have been working on my web page: http://www.chellstrings.com/.  I have a business plan and I am going to make a go of it!  Wish me luck as I roll out my web page in the following weeks and try to network to get my name out there. 

I have a family member, K, who is getting married in July and I am going to ask to play at her wedding.  Her sister got married last year and had over 300 guests at her wedding, so I am thinking K's wedding is going to be big too.   That would be cool.

I can SO do this!

Wow, I love how Secret Option C not only utilizes your talents, and an opportunity to do something you love, but also gives you the flexibility and independence you need with multiples. I wish you all the best with this new endeavor!

Hi! Just read your post on the Multiples blog! I had to be on Mag Sulfate too...people just don't understand how horrible that stuff is. Yuck! Makes me sudder just thinking about it! Oh..and I can't imagine life without a strict schedule. I also work full-time, so that may be why, but I really think kids thrive on routine and schedule! Just my two cents :) Thanks for sharing your blog!!
