I’m at a serious crossroads with life, with Boat Show Girl, with my many many interests, my love for this industry, my desire to help this industry become successful and an inch away from some serious burn out.
In another month or two, depending on what happens, I will be leaving my job in this industry. The initial plan is to really bring Boat Show Girl to fruition, but I am at a loss of what to do as far as that goes. Do I fear that I won’t succeed in this, because I am doing this without a back up plan — or do I stick it out? Or, do I back away and just get another job while I try to muddle through making something of myself while working for others… once again.
First and foremost, I want to be a writer of every kind. I want to make money at it.
Secondly, if I’m going to be in the marine industry, BOAT SHOW GIRL really wants to help push the education part and getting future employees in the door. The THIRD thing that Boat Show Girl wants to do is help DIVERSITY bring everything together for more sales as it should be… and helping make everything come full circle when the times are changing.
FOURTH: I have such a DIVERSE resume. I have been management, worked in retail, do visual merchandising, do computer work, admin assistant, marketing/design, writing, eBay sales, worked with parts and service, and have various other skills. I have helped businesses by contract work, I’ve also helped set up a business.
FIFTH: I have a desire to do so many different things. There are things on my dreams list such as getting more technical where I can talk about it at shows, being out on the water, eventually get my captain’s license, maybe teach some classes, have my own booth, help at boat shows or local events as BSG, talk to companies and be something for them, and so on. But I also have dreams I haven’t even thought about yet. I want to do a lot. I want to experience as much as I can. And ultimately, have a sincere purpose for BSG at the boat shows.
SIXTH: In my spare time, the other half of my heart belongs to the ARTS. I do theatre work, part of the film society, and I write all kinds of things. I also do photography, sketching/painting, arts and crafts. I love reading, history, animals, traveling and so much more.
THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN.
Boat Show Girl is looking for CONTRACT work that fits mostly in the marine industry but if you have anything else for me, please let me know. Just pass it around. I am in Gulfport FL – but will travel around Tampa Bay and would love to telecommunicate as far south Florida as possible. I’m not opposed to dreaming it up in Key West, either.
All I want is enough work to keep me busy and money coming in. I would love any opportunity and I appreciate anything or any advice you can give me.
