So I know someone who needs a job. She's a great person and a fantastic asset to any company, but unwilling to work a minimum wage job.
Now, if you're just starting out or getting back into the work force, let me tell you something--you can't start at the top. You have to start at the bottom and work your way up, to prove yourself. You have to be willing to say, 'would you like fries with that,' which is another way to say, 'start at the bottom' and be the clerk instead of the owner.
It's the same thing in the writing industry. There are too many writers who think they're best seller status and even put that on their website (unearned, mind you) because they think they can write. They have NO training, but someone told them along the line that their book has some sort of merit.
So here's the deal. You have to ask about the fries before you can be the boss. That's the way life goes. And if you're ever at the top, you'll be thankful you waited to get there. The journey from fries to boss is amazing. You learn more than you ever thought possible.
Have a great week!
