This blog has been silent lately. As a writer, I wrote and wrote so much content about inspiring others to write, that I lost my passion for it. Coaching would be nice, but as a writer who has struggled marketing her own self published book on short stories – I lost that passion.
I took a break.
I did a lot of thinking.
I saw my bank account dwindle. Found some money, then lost it.
The day job is uneventful, low paying. I’m surprised how contentious the corporate culture can be if you ask for a standard salary comparable to the industry rate I could be getting.
I’ve never wanted to mention this on my blog – you know, the day to day life I have and the frustrations I think we all go through with the economy, or trying to make our lives better by reaching out for something. It may be due to my trying to compartmentalize my private life with my online content. It’s also due to my concern over my employer seeing what I write about them. It’s not that I have anything bad to say. I’m grateful I’m employed. But I think I could do so much better than this. I think they can do so much better, too.
So, what does one do to remedy a low paying job? Look for another one, right?
I’m more than discouraged by the job interviews and rejections I’ve received. However, I’m learning. I’m learning how companies can do better. How they can strive to be better in hiring. How they can allow candidates who don’t get hired to be part of the conversation and become part of a company’s bank of good candidates who could do something spectacular for them in the future.
Is there anyone out there? Is there anyone out there who wants to talk about the frustration of not doing what you want to do in life?
Are you finding it difficult to get hired?
Are you being passed over for promotions?
Do you want to vent why life is sucking and how everything you’ve done to take action has rendered nothing?
Are you sick and tired of “Self Help” books and watching videos about the “Law of Attraction” which sound more hokey each day?
Let’s not be alone here.
Let’s start a conversation.
