Annie Kontor replied to Randall Peterson's discussion Hi everyone, this is my first post. I feel overwhelmed.
"(Got cut off. Thanks Interwebz) Divide the remaining time up between those 2 days off and do it. Also, in thinking how you can be more efficient, can you automate any of your tasks? Hire a virtual assistant or college student to help with social…"

"Annie, Awesome idea. Very niched, which is crucial. Also, I agree with Jen. Find communities where your audience hang out and figure out ways to serve those communities. Bottom line, you are definitely taking strategic steps. Awesome job! Kent"

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
I heard of this community through the book. I love the fact this is a supportive, non-judgmental place to bounce ideas off people and to meet other folks who want to make their work fun and profitable.
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
I have a master's in French literature and teaching credentials. I work for my State government and I just started my own freelance translation/editing/writing business (Indigo Prairie Press & Writing Services) on the side.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I like my day job because it allows me to combine my love of politics, statistics, Spanish and attention to detail, but I am hustling to see how far I can take this freelance gig. Oh, to have the income to run back away to Europe...
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
I am pursuing freelance writing and editing as I work to publish a series of books for single women and daily life.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
Gallup says I am Input, Empathy, Intellection, Developer and Context. On the DISC scale, I am a very high C, a high S and a low D and I. I am in the process of unpacking what the means :)

Basically I like language and all the gifts it brings. Whether it's translating, creating my own content or helping someone refine their words to get their message across, the power of words is where it's at & where I love to be!

Random fun facts: I have double jointed elbows and can recite all the British monarchs from memory.
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://www.indigo-prairie.com
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I help individuals and small businesses polish their written communication by editing, writing or translating so they can convey their message to their target audience.
Feel free to share your Twitter name, Facebook page, and any other social media way to connect with you!
