Eye of a Needle

I am a struggling transcriber. I think that all my clients hate me and that includes potential clients. TC says that instead of sitting around and moaning that I haven’t got any work, that a modicom of effort is all that is required  of me – a modicom of effort, by definition, means very little; very little is something that I can do. As it happened, I was contacted early in the week by a researcher who remembered me from a while ago and he had tried to find me via Linked In. I joined Linked In about seven years ago; I didn’t make any connections and I filled in the profile as:-

Current position: Broke

Salary: Negligible

Looking for: A life

Education: Yes, I did go to school.

Amazingly enough, on failing to make a connection through Linked In, he got my number from an ex colleague of his, got in touch and made some encouraging noises about using me on an upcoming project. I emailed him later to say, ‘Just revisited my Linked In and have updated and professionalised. Thanks for getting in touch despite it.’ So I’ve updated my profile, made a few connections with people I haven’t been in touch with for a while and will now wait and see if TC’s prophecy comes true.
