Net Worth Week 62

Gentle Readers,
My roommate has my box spring and my bed is finally normal size! This feels wonderful. I still need to deal with some items I’d like to donate, but my room is already much more comfortable.
It appears we have more than one week of work left, but the systems will be down all weekend. This means less OT than I’d like. This is also the second weekend in a row with extended system downtime. I assume the Russians are involved.
I’m really glad that I attended some PRIDE events even though my heart was not in it. It did me good to people with my people as I suspected. There were some good acknowledgements of the devastation of Pulse. Our community needs to support one another.  Some protections that had been put in place have been removed and we believe further removals are coming. The number of hate crimes against LGBT people has increased in the past year alarmingly. We were already the most likely to be targeted, and it got worse.
I have one more week of the free class before our teacher is gone for summer. I found a potential tutor for the summer who is also a really good deal. I need to see if I can actually give the tutor all the time they say I need before laying down the money. Since this skill will help my business, it can help my taxes, too. Having that LLC definitely changes how I spend money. I think this tutor and dedicated focus by me could finally get me over the edge and ready to charge for this skill.
Having dinner with a group of women in my profession tonight. We like to talk trade and support one another and just generally add to the conviviality. It should be lovely.

Do you make a habit of truly knowing other professionals in your area?

  • I’m absolutely terrible at meeting or keeping in touch with professionals in my field, whether local or international, because I keep so busy with actually working. I know it’s a bad thing but it’s one of the few things where I just go with what’s easiest for me, partly because I haven’t needed to rely on that network much. That’s something that may well change in the next couple of years. So good on you for making it happen!

    • I learn so much from my network. I would not have been able to start my business without them. I also just respect these women a lot and enjoy their company. I’m lucky.
