Gentle Readers, I did a ton of overtime and worked too many days without a break, but on Wednesday I fly to Europe and my nibling. I may even see if I can meet with my tutor while there since my brother will be at work and the internet works in Europe, too. The amount … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 181 – Pre-Europe Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, Y’all that gig’s payrate went up and they added overtime. COME ON, ZJ! I did another late night tutoring session on Thursday and will have my paid class Saturday. It looks like this current gig is wrapping up, but no word yet. Gotta keep getting that money, but take the time to learn … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 180 – Friends From Afar Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, Yet again, there was a gig posted in the skill I am spending lots of time and, now, money learning. This time, the pay rate went up even higher. They must be desperate to fill this positions. I met with my online tutor Thursday at 11 pm. I am spending more on learning … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 179 – Chill In The Air Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, I couldn’t attend my free class this week because I got sick, and my paid class had the day off. So I am meeting with my online tutor tonight at 11 pm. ZJ Means Business. It’s always a bummer when you have to miss paid hours for being sick, but I take the … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 178 – Celebrate Women Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, I am making rapid progress in my skill, and each little step forward compels me to try to find new ways to work even harder. Last year, there were only a dozen gigs in this skill across the country. In September alone, there were a half dozen. I am so glad that former … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 177 – Actually Autumn Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, Business potential is here again. Clients, both those arriving and those leaving are less communicative than normal. I completed the the Career panel for thriving businesswomen. Conveyed some useful truths and felt good about it even as it is laughable to think of my in the red business as thriving. I began the … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 176 – Lizzo Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, August ended roughly and it took forever for gigs to come, but thankfully one did. I spent my time with Dr. Baby Gay, who is still being a lovely distraction. Almost too distracting, which is why it took me so long to open the email confirming my new IBR payment is going up … Continue reading "Net Worth “Week” 175 – Take Your Time Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, Replacement gig had its start date pushed back until next week, and then pushed again to an unknown day. August is always the most expensive month for my business since insurance is due in full. This is why I’ve avoided paying my credit card. Having the cash liquid was important to my staying … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 174 – Continued Sighs Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, Gig ended. Potential for a new one in the middle of next week. Ugh. Cannot access my online banking account, but can get the balance. PLEASANT. And I’ll keep studying. This weekend, will celebrate a family birthday and see friends and go on dates. Pity me. Per usual, burning questions can be sent … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 173 – Gone Gig Edition" ...

Gentle Readers, Unfortunately, it appears that my business will not be busy in August. So the big August expenses will go on my personal account. Ugh. There is a possibility that one person may hire me. Crossing fingers. In the meantime, I’ll just hoard cash in my personal account rather than pay personal bills. And … Continue reading "Net Worth Week 172" ...
