Thinking About Retiring…
Since it’s taken over a month, almost two months to finish this move, I have done little in the area of publishing. I have been writing, I must admit, and working with the last of my protege clients. But, I had really expected to see more book sales. This is the awful truth about becoming an author and being in the publishing business. I teach my clients to build a following and to talk about their characters and introduce them to their book by way of social media. Unfortunately, the majority of followers like pictures and rarely read books.
I’ve had breakfast with one recent client who was upset with my lack of marketing for the new book. Unfortunately, my personal drama took my time away from my business. My income has dwindled. So I began searching for another stream of the Multiple Stream of Income Paradigm. I found surveys to be the answer.
Well not all surveys. There was one where I could qualify for a $250 gift card with Walmart. I love Walmart. So I said out Saturday morning filling out survey after survey as I collected points to reach the $250 gift card qualification. I answered I don’t know how many surveys and only gathered 40 points when the survey froze on one webpage. I could not go forward…I tried but to no avail. I lost out on the $250 but now have a dozen survey companies emailing me. Of course, I am un-subscribing as is my right but what a pain.
The internet is full of fraudulent opportunities. Be very careful with whom you join. My experience with two or more did not work out. I reported them…oh well.
