Reprap Filament

First of all let me say, there is nothing wrong with being a volunteer!! I have volunteered a lot in my life and always will. Right now I am a Disaster Mental Health volunteer for the Red Cross and I am Program Chair for a non profit for women divorced and/or widowed. I put a lot of time and energy into these two and I love doing it.

It's not a hobby. A hobby is something you do that you love, but you don't get paid to do it. Gardening, knitting, surfing or whatever suits your fancy. It's just something fun that you could do all day. (Well, maybe not knitting!).

I know it can be hard 'asking' for a client to hire you. In the real world they are not going come flocking to your door. (Like my mom used to tell me, 'men are not going to come flocking to your door, you have to go out and meet them') Sweet. Same concept.

It is what it is. You are not a used car salesman, you are a professional with programs and services and gifts to offer to people who want and need you. But if you don't market yourself, they will never know you exist.

And when you meet people who you think might be a fit for a client for you, you need to follow up with them. You need to let them know how you might be of service to them. You need to step out of your comfort zone.

That's the predicament of being a multi-talented, creative and aspiring trailblazer - to discern when to follow the "tried-and-true" materials (because reinventing the wheel is often stupid) and when to break out of the box, trust your guts and follow your own creativity.
