Standing Up

23 Aug

I recently rejecting a writing contract for a large corporation.  The money just wasn’t enough for the amount of work they wanted.  It is too bad because it would have led to a lot of assignments, but then I thought about it.  And said no which I am not great at.

I also sent my proposed rate to for a college blogging job in Australia.  I quoted a fairly low rate because it would be easy for me, based on what I already do.  I think he still wasn’t happy and I’m supposed to hear tomorrow but I’m not holding my breath.

The thing is, I actually think I deserve to get paid to do things.  I didn’t always feel this way.  I was torn between working at the community college or volunteering teaching for a literacy association.  But now, while I value volunteeering, I am getting better at thinking I am worth paying.  For me, that is a step in confidence.

    I have recently come to this realization. Maybe something about volunteering for my children, husband, and friends all day everyday perhaps? Too bad I can’t do anything worth any money!!
