I really loved working for #SELF employed in jamaica because...

Working for myself in jamaica was very good it gives me time to take care of other stuff that would be way more challenging if i was working for someone else plus I love what i did planting stuff and watch them grow was very satisfying there are times when the prices of my produce would fall and there's time when it would increase significantly however if I could do it again I would it in a heartbeat.farming is very satisfying.

I was 45, lost my job, and spent the better part of a FULL YEAR trying to find another position. That job lasted only 3 months due to the owner deciding to cut some positions, and I couldn't bring myself to go through the nightmare I had previously trying to find a job. I had always toyed with the idea of self-employment. The one thing I felt I could do well was write and started taking steps to make that a reality. After reading everything about freelance writing I could find, I finally realized my lack of credentials and recent writing experience was a major obstacle I had to overcome. No one was going to pay me a penny based on my word alone! So, I did what any insane 50-year-old woman would do; I enrolled in school (online) and pursued a degree. This was a major risk, as I didn't have a great track record of finishing things I started. (That was all prior to being diagnosed with ADD and treated with good meds.) Not only did I earn my bachelor's degree for technical writing, but I did it with an extremely high GPA. I wasn't as stupid as I believed. By the time I graduated I was 55 and already had started taking on some freelance writing jobs. I also studied and took the exam to become a Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW), which wasn't really something I planned, but someone I knew well, had worked with, and trusted, was doing this type of work and basically coerced me into joing the "fun!" Once I heard what kind of money she earned I admit I got more interested. Anyway, that was in 2010 ( I was 55) and I've been a self-employed freelance writer, specializing as a CPRW since that time. Success didn't happen overnight or easily but at least now I had the skills, education, experience, and maturity to make it work and I've never regretted my decision. #ageism #advice #jobsearch #resume #self-employment

I wish my job @ #Self employed last 15 years had...

More stability with retirement and regular hours instead of hat in the work set up the sun down in 8 hours or 10 hour job instead of 15 to 18 hours

What I loved about working at #Self Employed CPA 1986-2016 was

Not having to constantly act on the basis of what my boss would like me to do, but what was the the best thing to do for my Clients.

I still work as a private House cleaner and everything is perfect about the people I clean for. I am just looking for something different PT like cleaning at an Assisted Living Facility or a Day care center
