"I can change your life...!"

That's what I feel like saying to half the people I encounter here at the gym. I'm a Fitness Specialist and will be officially christened as a Personal Trainer tomorrow as well. Throughout the night I have met with member after member, explaining that despite having a 9+ hour desk job, they can change their lives for the better by implementing fitness in a few easy steps.

When I'm done demonstrating and explaining, they walk away smiling, a look of new-found determination and motivation. I'm proud of myself every time I help direct someone on the correct path to achieving better health and well-being.

Then I get sad because I'd be truly happy if I could make my living this way. But, sadly, there's just not enough money in it. At least not at this stage for me.

Which brings me to my next point... Over the past few weeks I've been trying to land a full-time position at a corporation. G hooked me up there with some freelance work. I keep scheduling meetings with the CEO to interview with the other partners, but every time I turn around, something goes wrong... someone forgets about the meeting, they get held up off-site somewhere, etc. etc. I'm just jumping through endless hoops.


This economy just plain sucks. Public Relations and Marketing are not good industries to be in right now, unless you have about 10 years of experience under your belt. (I have about 4)

So, I have to just be patient with this company. But my God, I just hope it happens. Financially I'm living by the seat of my pants. If I have to eat beans and sauerkraut for dinner one more time... ick.
