As I explained in the Introduction thread, Iím here because Iím getting really really tired working for other people. I want to work for myself.
This does not necessarily mean working from home. Neither doing something that let your money work for you, or something along that line. Maybe one day. But for now, I just want to work for myself. And that means, exchanging my time and skills/knowledge with income.
The part that I do need help thoughÖIím not sure what should I do.
Iíve been working in administrative/accounting & finance sectors my entire working career. Iím very detail oriented, tedious, and good with numbers. Iím quite analytical, problem solver, and proficient with office software like Excel, Spreadsheet, Word, etc. I know I have all skills that are needed to work for other people. I can run a whole office. Unfortunately so far it's always been other people's office.
However, Iím not good at selling. My social skill is shot. I canít convince people to do something, much less to buy something. Iím not a party goer. I have a few close friends, but in a crowd, Iím silent and prefer to go unnoticed.
Now Iím willing to go back to school to acquire new skills or certification. However, Iím yet to figure out what major should I study, that eventually will allow me to work independently/owning my own business.
Do you see where Iím going? For example, they said RN will always have a job. But I donít want to have another "job". I donít want to have another boss to cater to (customer yes, but individual that call themselves "boss"--no more). Iím tired of worrying to ask for a day off or coming in late or leaving early because I have something to do. Simple things like that.
I want to work for myself. Owning my own business.
Could you help me with some ideas? I.e. what major of schooling should I take?
And yes Iíve tried to blog or build a website. But itís really hard when I work with computer all day, after I get home I still need to sit in front of computer for hours. I guess writing is just not something I enjoy. After a few months the motivation just went dead and I got totally sick even just looking at computer. And thatís not good cause it did effect my performance at work, and I canít get fired, not yet.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
