sorry if I am just thinking aloud. I guess it is my duty to do so as I come here
I left my full time job in Nov 2009, was a corporate scholar but got disillusioned with the way things were when the retrenchment came. So I briefly went out and started an sole proprietership where I have been taking on government projects on a outsourcing basis. The business did well in 2010, but for the past 4 months I have ran out of leads and each day the wait gets agonising as presales and networking, even applying for full-time jobs, seem futiel.
Guess the reason why I am here, is because at a juncture like this, in front of me is not even a crossroad, but a huge vast ocean where I can set sail and find.. well.. maybe antartica.
As a male, 29, probably not keen to follow marriage since I have frankly, as a teenager, surfed enough p*rn and babysat enough younger cousins too to know that it's really no big deal. My greatest hero is my grandmother who survived the second world war and the communist insurgence, but sometimes I wish I can be a small hero on a longer basis. I.e. from the internal voices, and occasional judgement which my traditional chinese family imposes on me, getting a career with a good reputation, not throwing their face away, bringing in the dole and defeating a few million foreign talent for the job in a good company is the right thing to do.
Never mind if nobody reads this.. I guess it helps when I share, because sharing is receiving.
Check out my personal website too to see what I have done these 2 months also. I bought the TBED book but dunch think will go for the coaching, yet. due respect, life is a wonderful coach itself, i take what is offered
