Staples at Staples

I am so glad they invented Staples! (And all the other office supply stores). Remember the days of supplies only being available at the drug store (or else you liberated them from your Corporate America supply cabinet). I run to Staples for my staples--pencils and computers, and everything in between. Plus they deliver to my doorstep when I shop online. Just another of the many jobs I do as a Jill-of-all-trades freelancer -- be a supply maven and keep my office supplied with the staples of freelancing.

TODAY's TIP: Some office supply cartoons for you!

Too Much Work Lately!

Well, I always say that working freelance is like a sine curve -- up and down -- feast or famine! I was working 24/7 and now I have nothing. But, I know the feast will return, so I am cleaning the house and doing yard work while I can. Of course, the feast will not return unless one prospects for work: contact old clients, cultivate new clients with a cold call (via email), etc.

TODAY's TIP: Do you know the difference between "cold calling" and "warm calling"?
