I had some dreams ... they were klowns in my koffee.

(With apologies to Carly Simon)

This is my journey through job transition from a toxic environment to a better life. Join me for a few thoughts and a few laughs along the way.
What are "klowns in my koffee"? They are the factors large and small that make you less than you are. A "klown" can be a grossly incompetent boss,
a short-sighted policy or a moronic coworker. They won't kill you, at least not immediately, but they abrade the soul
as you scrape past them to get through the day. Sometimes it's best to dump them out of the cup.


Day 12 - Kaput

This was that day that they warned me about. The dark, cold, rainy day when I didn't get the spark and didn't do much. My Daily Plan showed progress but I couldn't get it together enough to go to the Networking Workshop this evening in the pouring rain. It cost $1000 to fix my husband's car so that put a big crimp in my projected jobless survival time.

I started communicating with the people on my reference list to verify that they were still willing to do that. Tomorrow I should start on the skills identification exercises. I have a pretty good understanding of the breadth of the market now based on reading hundreds of ads. I want to take a fresh look at my experiences and my portfolio to refresh my resume. From there, I'll be able to clean up my LinkedIn profile and then be fairly solid. I'd still like that million dollar idea to strike that would allow me to be self-employed and more in control of my own destiny.

I'm looking forward to a sunny day tomorrow.
