Since writing this post Anonymous may have helped people, but has not within the last 4 days.
Are you a life coach or something like that?
I take a little pile of paper from point A and place it in Point B. Sometimes (just for some excitement) my colleges and I like to discuss “Point C”. But that is only after they have been in with the laminater too long (fumes).
my purpose is to keep you guessing
Good Question,And Im glad your here to help with that.Can you answer this question 4 me?What can do when that purpose is filled(for the most part) ?Where do I go now?
Back to Pont A seems to work for me.
Thanks for that,but it doesnt work for me.
if you have fonud yours then help someone find theres but dont let them know your helping
If you are living then your purpose has not been fulfilled, FELICITY!
P-Yeah,I know what you mean. That will be an ongoing thing .Let me explain;The kids are grown,I don’t care for the g-kids anymore on a regular basis.So now what do I do? I love helping here,but it doesnt pay the bills.And I cant go back to what I’ve done before due to getting older,failing health and other things.
We could do with more paper movers. Not as exciting as kids and G-kids, but very clear cut.
seen your pro your not old or over the hill my wife is a care worker or home help could you try something like that
M- paper mover? Is that a joke?…..W-Like caring 4 the elderly or something? No-That’s not an option . I’ve always done physical work in the past.Can’t do that anymore. Only basic typing ,puter skills.And what I do has to be purposeful or I will get bored.
What are you passionate about, Felicity? What pastimes or hobbies do you enjoy? Do you need a substantial income, or just something to pad your account?
Starting your own business from home is an idea; think about a service or product you can offer and then set it up. It’s all about *what you love* - and then figuring out a way to get paid for it! ^_^
Poet, thats exactly the advice I give to others,no offense.But This is what I love to do.But it doesnt pay and I may not have the puter for long to begin anything on-line.It’s not mine and no way of getting one of my own.If I had $ I would buy a car first.Thats a need and a want.
Just some extra would help,but I need more to keep a car and a future.
If it helps,all my skills are have to do with life,parenting,self-improvement,not the traditional computer analyst or restuarant manager or ?
Great minds think alike. ;)
Hmm…advice columnist? Maybe put together a portfolio of things you’ve written, format ‘em in ‘column’ style (check out local papers if you want a guideline) and start asking around. You could also write a book or series on life/parenting/self-improvement and start shopping that around. I’m not saying it’ll be easy, but it’ll definitely keep you occupied and purposeful. There’s a huge market for this stuff out there, and if folks like your style you could really hit it big.
Just another idea!
You could also offer your services as a parenting coach, (lord knows a lot of folks need one) but I’m not sure exactly how you’d go about doing that…you’d have to do a bit of research.
Yeah,research guess thats the next step.I have started books …not to be a pain in your neck,but I don’t even know what a Guideline is.See what I mean I’m so stupid of the ways of the world.No-one in my family has even gone to college.I’m illiteate on these things.
Okay,this may help. I love to analyse and do research.What can I do with that?If you don’t mind
I’m sorry anon,I owe you an apology,I just invited ppl to this post w/out asking you first.I can be Ditsy like that sometimes.I was going back and forth and that really confuses and bothers me.Can u forgive me?
Analysis and research have LOTS of career applications - which may generally require some post-secondary education. You have access to the internet, obviously; so why not start Googling ‘research’ and ‘analysis’ and see what you come up with? Just to see what’s out there; and maybe it’ll spark an idea.
Journalism involves a lot of research and analysis, particularly the political and financial stuff; and doesn’t generally have any requirements beyond high school. Since you seem to enjoy writing, that’s the direction I’d point you in. Keep a dictionary handy (electronic or otherwise) and expand your vocabulary - it’s handy as a reference tool.
Learn on your own; you don’t need a degree but you do need self-discipline. Most of what college gives you is the ability to read and write in an organized, critical-thinking way…school work is mostly one essay after another, based on book research.
Oh, and a ‘guideline’ is a general rule, principle, or piece of advice. I just meant that you could use local news columns as a ‘guide’ for your own work (if journalism appeals to you). Reading helps you to learn different styles of writing, and improves your own.
