I work as an Independent Contractor for multiple companies. That means that if I want money to come into my bank account first I have to find the jobs to do. Sometimes that's easier said than done. Especially this week, when the extreme heat and excess humidity has sapped all my ambition:
Yesterday I saw an assignment that looked appealing. However, it was halfway across town and didn't pay enough to justify the driving I'd have to do. Another company had a job just a couple of blocks away from the first, but (again) the pay wasn't enough to get me in the car. This morning I sent an email to both, explaining that I would do the work if it could be assigned to me for tomorrow. It took a couple of hours, but I eventually got responses from both companies that the jobs were mine. Success! I added another errand along the way and all of a sudden the day was looking productive.
Productive, but not filled up. I'm going to continue to look; you never know when opportunities could present themselves.
