Image via Sleevage.comA bunch of things are bugging me:
3) I was sent on 3 modeling castings and didn't get any of them despite knowing I did a decent job at the auditions. A lot of us do a decent job, though: competition is fierce and FIERCE. :D
4) Because I couldn't commit to three weeks solid, partially due to the aforementioned fashion contract, I missed out on an awesome Olympic installation gig at the Grande Bibliothèque, "Breaking the Ice", also worth $1 500.
5) I have a bunch of clients who are "maybes", but haven't committed to a fixed date yet, either because their projects aren't starting yet or they are busy themselves. I have to be patient and/or follow up with most of them.
To make matters worse, things are really tight financially right now, and I'm seeing very little return on the effort I'm putting forth. In my persistent can-do mind, though, that just means I have to dig deeper and get more creative to find solutions to attract more clients.
IN OTHER JOBS:
Remember my vow to make $100 off of the stock market? Well, I went to the bank a few Saturdays ago and while I was there, the financial advisor's computer crashed so she couldn't open my account! Just my luck! She was supposed to call me back last week, but it looks like I'll have to follow-up with her as well.
And my blessed, zany aerobics class: I haven't booked the space yet! I was going to do so last week, but my birthday and the redesign got in the way. I'll have to set a date soon!
Cheryl's "Get a Facebook Fan Page Following of 1000 Members" and I'll toss ya a hundred bucks" has stalled at 171 members. I don't want to begin irritating people to get them to join because I want everyone's participation to be voluntary and lighthearted... unlike a bag of weasels! Ha! Bit ya ear there!
I also announced yesterday via Facebook that if you can find me a job for $115, I will give you a commission of 15%. That applies to any individual contract of any amount in excess of $100, for the next little while! So you get to be like my one of my agents: making a few calls, sending me out and laughing manically while I do the dirty work.
