I blogged on Tuesday about making a new schedule. I spent most of the day yesterday tying up some lose ends and organizing a couple things that needed to be done before I could really sit down and make this schedule. So, it's something that I am penciling in to start on this evening.
I've got a 10 am meeting with a local Outreach Program that I anxious to attend. I want to see what they are all about and if there is something they offer that can help me.
I have a 1 pm appointment to (hopefully) sign up a new Avon representative. I've never done this on my own. So, I watched a video on it on the Avon website and I asked my District Manager to meet with us and help a little. This is something I really want to get comfortable with. By having a certain number of representatives selling under me, it helps because I can earn a percentage of what they make. One way to make more money and to make life easier for me.
Avon is one of my stumbling blocks as far as setting up a master schedule for myself. I need to figure out how much time I need/want to spend on it and decide at what times I want to do this. A little more training may help me get motivated and judge how much time I want to spend on this.
Another stumbling block is my desire to go back to school. I feel that it will help sharpen the job skills I need to get a job that I enjoy and that will pay well. I've been talking to one school in particular this past week. It's taken some time to get my ducks in a row to see if this is do-able. So, I need to figure out how much time this will take each day to make it successful.
These are the main reasons I know I need to work on a schedule IN PENCIL. I know I will have to adjust a few things as I get new customers, go to meetings that pop up and have big assignments that have due dates. I am looking forward to the challenge.
