Chronic Job Hopper/Shopper


A week ago, I told a friend it would be a fun exercise to list all of the players in my less than stellar work history. I've left so many jobs, after such a short time, always in pursuit of the next best thing. In essence, I was a freelancer before I ever officially became a freelancer. Took me a while to realize that actually belong on my own, moving from project to project. Your box, not my box. This list includes only the w-2 jobs; there are this many and more 1099 gigs, once I finally got it through my skull that yes, indeed, I am meant to be a free spirit in work, as in life. What's the moral of the story? There is none. In human fables, there's only foibles.

What a variety of FABULOUS experiences. I love taking note of the phases you moved through too. Some 'theme' that dominates through a few jobs -- then off to something totally different. What a neat excercise.

XOXO
