Shaking Some Trees

As a full time Freelancer, I know it’s all about the hustle—I’ll shake some trees—follow up with clients I haven’t heard from recently, and sometimes, I’ll get nothing for my trouble; other times, I’ll be met with a steady stream of leaves (money), thanks to happy client referrals!

Lately, it’s been leaves, far as the eye can see…

Just Call me G

My first name is too popular; a couple of months ago, I got the wrong drink at Starbucks because another Amy nabbed my order and I got hers…They made good, issuing a credit for a free drink. Now, when I order, I just go by G. Problem solved!

Amazon Locker Convert

Since UPS leaves deliveries from Amazon in front of my building in Brooklyn if I’m not home, I gave Amazon Locker at my local Rite Aid a try. I received a code via email when my box arrived and I was able to pick it up at 9:00 p.m. last night on my way home from Manhattan. After I entered the code on the screen, the locker that contained my box popped open. Quick and hassle-free!

Impending Recession

It looks like we’re heading for another Recession…As a full time Freelancer, I have a bird’s eye view of the economy. In July and August several of my clients took over two weeks to mail checks; if that happens with one client, I figure they forgot to mail it, but several clients is a strong indicator that business is also slow for them and they’re reluctant to part with their money.

I’ve noticed that I have less disposable income for things like movies, or going out for dinner and drinks and friends. My advice: Hang on to your money—looks like you’re gonna need it!

USPS Snafu

So last week, two days in a row, my building wasn’t getting our mail delivered—we were getting mail for the building next door. Frustrating doesn’t being to cover it. As a full time Freelancer, I rely on USPS to deliver my client checks. I called the 1-800 number and someone actually called me back to create a case in their system.

Unsure of my mail carrier was just on vacation, or if this was the start of my own personal Hell, I followed up yesterday; I got the phone number for my local Post Office; someone answered the phone. She said she would relay the message to my letter carrier, who it turns out, took two days off. I spoke to him personally and said I hoped he had a nice vacation.

The same person called my yesterday evening to follow-up. I told her I spoke to my letter carrier and she said she would talk to her supervisor about the temporary letter carrier, so that this doesn’t happen again!
