Thanks Razibahmed!
I'm trying and I think it will be successful. It apparently has been dormant for some time, so it will take awhile to rebuild. I certainly thank you for your input!

Hi, FashionFiend!

And, will you be taking these skills into entrepreneurship in the near future, or are you already in business for yourself?

Sharlene,

I'm very far from being in business my self. I have a liberal arts degree (History and Spanish lit) and literally fell into management consulting-strategy stuff.

Did that for four years after university, got poached by a start up that was an ethics and loss accumulating debacle, also not what the position was billed to me as! Now I am in internet/PR/advertising hybrid.

I'm thinking that growing my skill base will help assuage some of the nervousness about not having a long term direction.

I was thinking of doing the MBA thing, but I am not strong in the math that is pretty much required. Considering finding a more focused degree that lets me skip the quant of the MBA, but not sure how those programs are received.

If I could handle the numbers, would totally do economic policy-- I loved public finance and welfare policy class I took in university. I loved that my school's econ program never involved heavy stats.

How would you parlay that into working for yourself as a consultant. If you do what you love, it's a great career. Find out what the final requirements are and, meanwhile, do the basic consulting and try to figure out how to bring that to those who can do the most good. If you can work the numbers, surely, there must be some contractors out there interested in having your type of work done for them, leaving the actual execution to them?

Possibly have your consulting available online for registered users, that would allow for changing parameters? <img src="/images/graemlins/tongue.gif" alt="" />

Yes, the numbers seem to be the biggest hurdle. It could be just anxiety and the negative experience of the start up- they expected me to do number crunchy stats work full-time, and not even in Excel but a special stats application. My boyfriend used to work in investment banking and his job was pure number crunching and he didn't even have to use that stats application. . .

I think a good litmus test might be to do some MBA practice tests and see how I do on the math portions.

Excellent thought. Sometimes we pick up more than we thought just going through regular routines. Your brain may surprise you! I'll keep my abacus nearby in support of your quest! <img src="/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" />

Well, it has really been a while since posting. I hope you will forgive me. I've just completed a major household/office move (still some things to be done) and needed to focus attention on that process. BUT, GOOD THINGS ARE HAPPENING!

How do I know? I've SEEN how many visitors have come to see the few posts here and KNOW you're out there. That's good. I will be much more visible from now on and hope you will be, too!

Take a moment to post to a topic or create your own new topic or ask a question. (You're old hands at this. You know how it's done.) I'm in for the long term and want to make this an active friendly place for those of you starting or returning to a career.

Let's hear from you!

Hi, I'm a newbie on the forum. I am 21 and have been in the workforce since I was 14. I have a myriad of widely varied experiences under my belt and am still having difficulty deciding on a career. Thought this place might be a good place to hang around


Love Always, Katie

Thanks for posting, Katie. Appreciate your stopping by and hope you will continue to do so. Just starting out can be frightening -- just finding your niche. But, it's a wonderful journey!

In life, it is always a learning process. I have learn the most fundamental truth which is "You are what you think".

Thought, being a form of energy, sends out a frequency that draws like experiences to you. When you think about 'positive' things you tend to have positive experiences. Thinking about 'negative things' tends to draw negative experiences.

I've learned and applied this technique in my freelance and it has it brought me more business as a result.

As we go about on our life's journey applying the Law of Attraction, we are able to get the result or the things we want in life. Having a good grade will not neccessarily land us a good job but with the right attitude and the right mindset, we are able to attract the success we want. We need to be aware of what we are thinking so that we attract what we truly desire.

Feel free to download a Free Report on the Law of Attraction.


Cheers
Hazel

The above report/link takes an age to download. It's all hype and advertising. I wouldn't bother......

Thanks for the tip, Alexandria. It's a great update to the various visualization methods used during the 70s 80s and 90s, but it may be better for people to Google this on their own, rather than get locked onto a page that takes forever to download.

Focusing all your energy towards your goals has always been the tried and true method for achieving them. You find yourself choosing anything and everything that will further your reaching the future that you want so that you can recognize opportunities when they come knocking.

It can make for a very full library for Janes-of-all-trades, don't you think?
