There's some legacy posts on this blog that deal with resumes. My resume's decent. LOL - it's outstanding. It's a lifetime of work starting at age ... seriously I've been working since age 13 - but let's say age 17. If I was a man I'd have been on the cover of Fast Company years ago. I'm not sure they know I've legacy-judged their competitions due to the laziness factor out there ...
As an example, at age 20, I became the first female editor and publisher of the Collage, the 5-college newsmagazine of the Claremont Colleges. I had 25 employees and we ran 40,000 copies a week and were intaking at least $40,000 to $50,000 in ad revenue weekly. I learned a lot of lessons then; right now - what stands out the most is that "people falsify their timesheets."
And now at age 52, I'm officially an enterprise level entrepreneur. Never could figure how to make Pacific Human Capital a more than small enterprise ... but Chameleon is a different animal.
Chameleon Publishing's funding offering is just about ready. I completed the revised financial projections first thing this morning, after incorporating lessons learned from our market comps.
Had an interesting time the other day reading J.A. Konrath's much-read blog. Pretty much everything I have come to learn is covered by Konrath -- with one exception. Konrath has successfully done it for himself. As I'm constitutionally incapable of doing that, I'm doing it for everyone else.
Now as to what will happen - I don't know. But I am in this for the long-haul. I am in this for sustainable operations for decades to come. Maybe 170 years from now, when authorship is a recognized profession and rewarded beyond anyone's wildest dreams of today -- when this renaissance is long done and yet another begun -- my little old old-fashioned picture, or perhaps a picture of Meredith confused with myself, will be viewed by young people of that day. They will think, "I can do better."
And that - is the whole point. The enchilada. What we are all put here to do.
