As you can see, I have been away from WordPress for awhile but I am back and looking to become a regular contributor to the blog world. Even if no one reads it, I believe that this blogging concept will help me keep my thoughts a little more organized as I start working toward a near complete change in career path and an improvement in quality of life!
As far as the posts from 2010 are concerned, they were the product of a great class I took during my MPH program. Although, I did not recognize the true value of the ‘blog’ at the time, I am learning to appreciate the concept now. With that, I will leave those posts where they are…after all they are very useful and relevant to what I am hoping to achieve moving forward.
At the present moment, my goals with this blog site are to:
-Learn more about the opportunities in blogging
-Post material daily
-Use the blog site as a resource management tool for myself and whoever finds it useful
So what am I managing?
Without going into too much detail right now, I have decided to make the move to self employment in the world of public health, research, and writing. No, I don’t have savings, I don’t have a wealthy family, and I am learning as I go. Yes, I am not in the ideal position to move forward on a self employment dream. I recognize that and it is tough, especially when people are depending on you…but there is no time better than now, I am guessing…and hoping.
Currently, my goals are to find contract work and supplement it with a part time teaching or project management position. This is my initial answer to both providing for my family while allowing myself some extra breathing room to becoming a self employed public health researcher, writer, contractor, and anything else people choose to hire me for.
So ideally, if everything works out, this time next year I hope to be providing for my family with a combination of part time work, contract work and my soon to be created LLC! Lets see how it goes, and for those interested in similar paths, I hope we can learn from each other. So feel free to share your thoughts, strategies, resources, etc. and I will be sure to do the same.
thank you for visiting my revived blog and I look forward to its future!
