When I first started college at Herzing University I had two goals. The first was to graduate with a 4.0. One A- put the kibosh on that. So, I graduated with a 3.99. Yes, I know. You’re crying me a river of tears right now. So am I. I mean, really, it’s tragic to graduate Summa Cum Laude with only a 3.99. (This is sarcasm for those who cannot identify it on sight.)
Achieving my second goal was much more important to my family and me. That goal is to own my own writing business. Now I do. Purple Pen Writing Services is officially open for business. You can visit my site at www.PurplePenWritingServices.com.
I provide resume writing and business writing services to clients in the Greater Janesville area. I’ll amend that. While most of my marketing efforts target my local area, I’m online for a reason. I will provide affordable writing services to any client who requests them, assuming their request is both ethical and within my abilities.
I’ll also provide some consulting services. I have not completed my training, so the services I am comfortable offering don’t run the full gambit of career consulting or marketing consulting services. For those individuals who are struggling with their personal marketing plan (i.e., getting the kind of job they want) or with their professional marketing plan (i.e., reaching their target customers) I would be more than happy to provide consultation on marketing strategies and tactics. I can do so knowledgeably and effectively.
Of course, most of this is not of interest to Embracing Chaos readers. The point that might be of interest is this:
Now that I’m working 50-60 hours a week getting my business off the ground I will not be blogging as much. Once my business is off the ground I’ll be running my business and attending graduate school, so I still won’t be blogging as much. I intend to maintain Embracing Chaos, continue to add links, continue to visit old friends and new blogs—just not quite as much as I’d like.
If it is any consolation at all, bringing neurodiversity more fully into the mainstream through articles and other efforts is a very big part of my short-term, mid-term, and long-term plans.
