Me dear gather-friends,
I am leaving this website for a while, maybe longer. I found this website when I was searching for something. Not sure what, exactly, but I found it. I got to put my opinion out there, write and publish when I thought I might write a novel. I thought I might write and I'd feel comfortable enough to do that. Then I'd read someone's work that was better than mine, and I'd second guess myself.
I have been doing that since the beginning of the year. I have been searching for somethingot fill a void. I am a caregiver for my 92 year old grandma and with parkinsons and dementia, she's not much of a talker. She used to be. I like being with people of similar interests and I'd say gather fit the bill. Many of you Michiganders were some of my most treasured contacts. If any of you are in the Brighton area, well, I'm there. Wish we could meet. Currently, I am not commenting on articles, and am only deleting the MANY messages I get a day. I wish you all well, and I might be back, when I have more time to invest in this website and you.
I have been searching for something to do after, well, I'm out of a job. Grandma will not need me one day, due to a nursing home or the grand farewell. I have been looking into so many different options. I thought of going back t school, and well, it's kinda expensive and with 2 boys who will be in college within the next 3-6 years, and now in high school and middle school, I didn't think I could help them with their homework and do mine at the same time. Plus, it'd take 3+ years to finsh and I'd be 41+ at that point. With no experience, it's tough to get into any job market now, especially in Michigan.
I found out that I could be a Jazzercise instructor and I thout I'd go for it. Then she told me about the fee you have to pay, just to become certified to teach a 1 hour class. Then I thought about the fee and if I were to spend $1000, I could go back to what I used to do and invest in my business. This should not be makred spam, but if you feel that wasy, go ahead. I have been a beauty consultant with Mary Kay for the past 13 years. I kept trying to re-invest my sales into my inventory and I didn't manage my money well and got frustrated. I have lst customers since I haven't takedn the best care of them, and I thought I'd drop my business. Then, after all this searching, I found that my passion was indeed Mary Kay and if I was going to promote myself, I wanted to put my money in a future I know. I know what to do, waht to say, and I know what my past mistakes have been. I know how to run my businees better and I am ready to re-sign (since I went 1 year without placing an order) under a very successful Director who is about 3 hours away, but a mouse click away. I have a new mindset and a new passion for my skin care and color cosmetics business. In about a week I'll have a webiste. If you want to say hi, send an email through that, will you? My webiste will be: marykay.com/kkunkle1
Thanks for the time and comments and some criticisms. I've learned a lot, and I've enjoyed being here. Now, I'll be busy making some serious moneya ns having a back up plan after grandma.
Thanks again! Kathleen K.
