Marketing Skills While Defining a Career Change

Last week I lost my job. While venturing out into the world of the unemployed, I decided to market my skills directly as a freelancer and consultant. I aim to continue the full-time job search, but with millions of people losing their jobs now may be the perfect time to work for myself.

I am a writer by nature who loves to tell a good story. I’ve decided to combine my media and communication expertise into my own business venture. I hope to take time defining a career change and carefully reviewing future full-time employment steps. In the meantime I believe this transition is an opportunity in disguise. It’s a time to re-invent myself and clarify what I want to do with the rest of my working career.

Networking is key. If you know anyone looking for a freelance writer or communication consultant please pass along my new business blog: Velez Communication.

    Phillip :

    Your love of writing is a gift. You also love organizations like fraternities and that is excellent.

    There are good Frats and bad Frats ( to get drunk and have easy sex ! )

    I expect your Fraternities to be the Best Students and Most Honorable Guys.

    Tell us many stories. In the Internet too. Perhaps you are going to get some friends in the Internet to contact you with the Highest Spheres of Power, to do something Noble, Excellent and Kind.


    I got into trouble in for defending the “Obama is a Great President” Hypothesis, and my spankers hate and abhor two Great Ladies that I love and admire :

    A bunch of Republicans is spanking me !! – Many against one – Do you want to join a good fight ?? is a wonderful site of Forums, Conversations and Discussions, People do not seem to be the meannest Racists or Lowest Scum.

    I wrote a Leading Article, or Head Post in :

    I explained how Obama may last for 8 years or perhaps 16 years like Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

    How Obama is going to “torture” the guys at Fox News and other Idiots

    Then I woke up the Dracula of Republicans. My spankers have answered with rivers of hate against :

    1) Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi ( I admire and Respect this Lady )

    2) “The race card is the final hiding place of a liberal that can’t continue a debate based on it’s merits. I’m not saying racism doesn’t exist, it does, but the Democrats manipulate it to further their agenda.”

    3) Furious Attacks against Wanda Sykes for Kidney of Mr Rush Limbaugh. ( I love and admire Wanda ).

    4) “I don’t have a problem with the color of Obama’s skin, I have a problem with the thinness of it.” — Dennis Miller at Bill O’Reilly’s comedy show.

    5)”As far as you pretty much castigating the America youth as following sheep, it is what I would expect from a typical liberal.”

    I am a humble ant and my “Bag of Tricks” is certainly very limited. I am not the smartest follower and admirer of Mr Obama and the Democratic Party. I enjoy laughing at fools, but I consider that this fight is very uneven, many against one.

    So if you want to say some painful realities to those educated by the Wisdom and Profundity, the Great Depth of Intellect of Bill O’Reilly and Dennis Miller go to the above link.

    By the way. I still think that Mr Obama has gas for many years. He will be a Great President.
