I am grateful to have a job.
What may follow in this blog post is no way me being upset about having a job. Even though the pay is a little low, I am still grateful. Life can always be worse.
But I still cannot shake that incandescent glow inside of me that is desperate to do my own entrepreneurial venture. As some of you may know, I created a new website last year. It has gone through lots of changes. It is called vox-popPRcareers and no, I am not using this post to plug it — I just really need your advice on what. It is a niche careers website for people who aspire to work in public relations.
I love media and I think the possibilities of digital media are endless. I am hoping that vox-popPRcareers can play part in that.
But I feel such biting loneliness when I work on it. The solution naturally is to find someone to help me with it, but that is not the issue. I will look for someone eventually but the icy lonely feeling has more to do with besides one close friend, I don’t have anyone else to chat to about my feelings.
I will start to use Charcoal as a platform to talk about this more.
vox-popPRcareers takes up 70% of my time but it as yet brings in no money, but I adore it with a passion. I think it has a future as I believe in the power of content about careers and finding work.
I have lots of ideas for it but as for now, I need to get some 2nd opinions from any Charcoalies willing to give constructive criticism. Here are the questions for the feedback.
1) Do you think it is a good idea?
2) What do you think about finding career content online?
3) I know the look of the website needs to change, but what do you think of the current look?
Every day after work for the past two weeks, I have been coming straight to the computer centre to use the Internet to work on the website. It literally is all I think about all day and night.
One of my friends suggested looking for outside investment — I would like to do this eventually but once I have launched one of my ideas for an external product for the site.
As always, your views are appreciated. And if any of you are trying to do the entrepreneur thing, I’d love to get your perspective.
