You ever have one of those days? Filled with apprehension, trepidation, fear, and excitement all rolled into one giant glass ball of emotion?
I had a similar day just over a year ago. I knew in my gut that if I applied for this job, I would get it. I was, therefore, very nervous about simply submitting the application in the first place.
For the past six months or so I've been sitting on a business plan that involved one-on-one, BASIC computer training--setting up and showing people how to use an email account or their webcam or putting their vacation photos into a slideshow. I've done a few jobs here and there, all the while constantly aware of the vast potential that this opportunity held.
I made a menu with several, specific services. Each bit of software and training has a small fee attached to it. It's very straight-forward and incredibly easy to understand.
Most importantly, however, is the location and the target demographics of said location. Namely, an abundance of 60+ people in need of someone patient enough to walk them through some basic stuff on their computers.
Yesterday, I wrote and purchased a services classified ad to run for three days. It was far more than I was anticipating, but hardly more than I was able to foot. The ad is published today and will run through Sunday.
Either this entire opportunity will simply fizzle and disappear or things will change.
EVERYTHING will change.
