Creative Ways To Freelance

It’s hard to find a career that can make you completely happy in this day and age. It’s almost impossible to be 100 percent happy in a job because human wants are insatiable. One minute you are completely sold on your job and are ever willing to share this with friends and family.

Learning About Life When Working Abroad

*This is a collaborative post.

Somethings in life are not for everyone. That has to be the caveat I’ll start with because hurling yourself into a new job in a new country that is saturated with new cultures and ways of doing things is not everyone’s mug of Earl Grey.

It can’t be.

The Workaholic Series (Jane’s Career Evolves): Are you Currently Practicing what you didn’t Study in School?!

Her career path was set as long as she was concerned and she will thread on this adventurous thrilling journey. It was in the year 2001 that Jane got admitted into one of the country’s arguably best university.

As many Christian families will do, her parents called her aside for a family prayer when the day eventually came for her to leave for school. She was going to reside in the hostel, so as every caring parent would react, they were a bit worried.
