If you’ve followed my journey for any length of time, you probably noticed that I’m always trying new things: freelance writing, which led me to writing for the healthcare industry, real estate, travel, and many other industries; marketing, which led me to become “partner of sorts” to a local entrepreneur with three businesses of his own; public relations, leading me to become publicist for the region’s oldest jazz organization, as well as contributing writer for the area’s only professional indoor football team; online radio talk show host; and now author of the soon-to-be-released eBook, “YOU Can Become a Freelance Writer in 59 Days!”
Whew! I’m exhausted just thinking of this stuff……but my point is this: sometimes you just have to “try anything.” Opportunities are few and far between, and exceptional opportunities are a definite rarity.
So take whatever you have and make something out of that. It doesn’t have to be extravagant or even a lofty goal; it just has to be ‘something.’
In other words: try anything.

Just gotta share:
I recently picked up two really good clients – both of which could lead to whole new fields of opportunities for me.
EXCITING TIMES FOR SURE!
The first client is in the fashion industry. Now I’m no fashion plate – but I’m not too old to learn (darn it!). Anyway, I’m simply delighted. I was getting desperate – and had in fact thrown my name into a “whatever comes along” jar to get a gig. (Hey, any work these days is better than none.)
But here’s what’s really weird about this: I tried several times to break into the fashion industry…they simply weren’t having it. This last time I finally decided to just go hard and (in the vernacular), lay my thang down! But here’s the thing: the precise point I wanted to “Wow!” them with is precisely what didn’t – and the thing I thought was “ho-hum” was the thing that “Wowed!” them. Go figure.
The second client found me through a social network, one on which I rarely post. It’s quite an undertaking, but I’m eager to get things rolling and lick this puppy.
So yeah, you could say I’m floating on air these days, which is a good thing…
…since I’m also suddenly exhausted.
