Which way do I go, George?

So I’ve decided to become a freelance researcher, writer, proofreader and editor, but really, where am I going with this?

I have a business plan and although it’s quite rough, it is a business plan – on paper no less. I am a firm believer that those who write their plans on paper achieve their goals. The dilemma is that I don’t have a specific direction. I need to have a niche, a focus that is driving me to dig deeper.

Come to think of it, I actually feel quite good that I don’t have a precise and detailed goal. If it were too specific, I would just be establishing trivial rules that in the end do nothing more than create an uncharted territory with petty boundaries that, for fear of the unknown I am afraid to cross.

It's good for me to try a wide variety of jobs that interest me. I need to meet as many people as I can, work with as many people as I can, on as many projects as I can. During this process I will discover my niche.

I want to make a positive difference, motivate others, travel, explore and meet new people.

I am a curious person, eager to learn about anything, everything and everyone. I have a wide variety of interests and am always looking to expand my range of knowledge. I love discovering little known facts and sharing my findings with others. I research and prepare complex responses to requests for information, simplifying complicated topics in an educational and interesting manner.

I want to do all of these things that make me happy, while further developing my communication skills – verbal and written – working on collaborative and individual projects, editing, proofreading, researching and writing.

With all of those great qualities I should have no problem finding work. Besides, the law of averages state that if I persevere, eventually I will be hired.
