Business owner still looking for work

I've been making a little money freelancing but not a lot and I need to have stable income (while I write on the side)

In the mean time while I look for work I have started my own business. Though I hope this business makes money I realize that if you look at small business most don't make money in their first few years.

Happy New Year

I would like to wish every one a Happy 2010.

May this year be merry and everyone looking for a job will be able to find one.

I've notice a few economist production that the econonomy will turn around in 2010 so it might be likely that many will be able to find a new job in the new year.

it's sems I may have the write stuff

well it's not a steady nine to five but my adding freelance writing work into my job search seems to be paying off a bit.

I was just told a writing sample I sent to website that was looking for writers has been well received and they have me as one of their writers (actually they said backup writers) and well send me writing assignments for them.

It sounds like this will the assignments well only come every so often, but I will get paid for my work.

I'll fill everyone in with more information when I receive it.

looking at the ages of those at Michigan Works

while I was at my locale Michigan Works station I couldn't help but notice the make up of the people their. it was mostly older people (and those in their upper middle ages) and younger people (in their 20's or so)

I wonder if it's the time I went or is their are reason why people in those two groups are having a harder time finding work.

I'm guessing the high number of lay offs well account for many of the older workers (as well as some of the younger workers) and the fact that Michigan economy has been down for a while maybe a reason why many of the younger people have came down.

went down to Michigan Works

I went done to my local Michigan Works station near me.

for those that know the state of Michigan has been in economic trouble a few years before most of the nation (we're trend setters) and because of that our state has tried to get a number of programs to help people looking for work.

I don't know why I didn't go down sooner. I use there site in my job search, but I decided to go done to see if I can become a part of their No Worker Left behind program.

The No Worker Left Behind program is to ad people in further education so they can learn different skills to fit the jobs that are in demand in the job seekers area. Giving that I've been having a hard time recently even finding jobs that are looking for people with the skills I have, I figured it's a good ideal for me expand my repertoire.

I was told the soonest orientation meeting starts next month and if I'm in the program they well contact me with the time.

hopefully I made it into the program.

Please leave your name and your number and I'll get back to you

I just check my phones voice message and just listen to a message from someone who received my resume and wants to talk to me

Great news, only one problem the guy didn't leave me his phone number nor the company he worked for.

magazine article

it seems that my article in a magazine I mentioned a few post ago will be printed this month.

the article did not pay anything put I thought it would look good in a writing portfolio
