Another forced hiatus

Recommended Posts

So, it looks as if my time has run out to find something to keep going. I probably won't have any internet after the middle of next week. My environment is too loud & intrusive on the weekends to get anything done & there's nowhere that I can go to get away. Additionally, the Dept. of Ed. has offset my SSD & my rent went up, if it weren't for my friends, I'd probably have lost my apt. by now.

I had really hoped & tried to get something together so that I could make some progress. But I'm so tired and my productive hours per day are very limited. I usually only have 4 -5 hours/day during the work week, and that's only if I don't have errands to run. Then it's even fewer. I really need that to be at least doubled in order to get ahead, write my blog posts, etc. Plus I have a sleep disorder which makes it so that I can only wake at 12 pm EDT. I am now trying to find some assistance, apply for affordable housing, make some appts for some local docs, even though that's not worked out in the past. I get dismissed, invalidated, & misunderstood no matter how hard I try. If it weren't for my BFF I wouldn't have had internet now.

I'm so disappointed, b/c I have a cat, & I live in constant fear of losing her, my apt. everything.

I hope that I can come back and be better. But I really don't know what else to do.

You have to do what's right for you and your own current situation. It takes time to get a full client base and doesn't happen overnight. I would put any extra time you have after your work towards a marketing plan. Put that together and then you'll have a step by step blueprint to help you market your business. Many start out part-time and build their clientele first. You can do this, just takes time when you are always working full-time. Set a goal to leave your job too if that is your plan (6 month) so that you have something to look forward to.

I highly suggest you talk to a doctor about how you're feeling. Your sleep disorder may be enough to get you some help until you can get your business up and running.
