The last few days have been good, but busy.
I’m working on my first contract as an independent contractor, writing cases studies for an enterprise mobility company. I’m also hard at work using Successful Military Wife’s Marketing Makeover Challenge to help me develop a personal brand and website that will represent my marketing, branding and content generation skills.
What I’ve found is that marketing myself is a different kind of challenge than helping another organization market its products or services. The Marketing Makeover Challenge is pushing me to think in detail about how I’ll market myself as a contractor, so I appreciate the thought Kaye from Successful Military Wife has put into the challenge.
On a personal note, my husband and I have arrived in my hometown in Missouri, where we’ve spent time with family and friends. I feel lucky that Nick and I are here for such a long visit before we start the next legs of our PCS adventures.
We’re glad to celebrate my parents’ 40th wedding anniversary with them this weekend, and we’re in the midst of coordinating RSVPs, finalizing head counts, and otherwise preparing for the party we’ll throw for them — along with my brother and his girlfriend — on Sunday afternoon.
Life is good here in small town Missouri, and I hope it’s good for you, too — wherever you’re reading from.
