Lort bjezuz! I have been in Denmark for about 2 years, TWO YEARS!!!
So let’s be honest. Here’s the real reason I am doing this: No job prospects in Scandinavia…
Once upon a time I was qualified.
Once upon a time I thought I was marketable.
So when I moved to Denmark armed with only my MBA and a ton of work experience in the executive business management/corporate world, I thought I wouldn’t have any problems finding a job here.
Boy was I wrong.
I was so wrong and completely naïve.
As someone who is always thinking ahead and planning for the future, I didn’t plan on this move to Denmark. I fell in love and moved, straight away to Scandinavia and didn’t look back.
In retrospect, it wasn’t really thought through at all.
Two years in and I’m still looking for a job here. Seriously! I have about 20+ different versions of my CV (resume) all catered to different job markets in Denmark. I have over 100 different cover letters for those markets. I get the emails, I’m on the job sites, I’m networking and I continue to apply.
Apply everyday all day.
This is what I did. I literally get at least one job email rejection a day. I used to think it was funny, “Oh honey, I got another one, apparently I’m not what they need either.” “Thank you for your application, we regret to inform you that you were not chosen to blah blah blah.” Rejection after daily rejection.
It can get pretty discouraging.
So I started to look at other means to make some penge (money in Danish).
I mean, I need money with a quickness!
I need an income.
I’ve always worked.
AND I have some serious bills.
So for me NOT to be employed or employable…its downright awful. It messed with my outlook and things were looking pretty bleak (they actually still look that way). And so I turned to my laptop and the internet. Google became my best friend. Questions of, “What can I do now? What can I offer? What interests me? Just how do these people make money on the internet?!?”
And so here I am beginning my journey. All I can do is educate myself and document my journey.
Build and rebuild.
You’d think I’d be pretty good at starting over again and again. Atlas, no.
So social media marketing. Which, is just part of digital marketing and business building. Who knew I’d find it all interesting, but I really do. I always liked business and entrepreneurship. I consider myself a LIFE learner. I’m that gal that reads the books, I download those template freebies and I listen to all the podcasts.
Seriously, since I am not working and daycare is there…I can only better myself!
I mean, do you ever wonder how those people you see on-line are making money? I do! I want that piece of that pie. And god willing, I will get there.
So what can I do?
What’s my niche?
My niche is you.
The ones that are just like me…the people who are always curious about all things digital marketing, but never really took the leap to hit that ‘play’ or ‘download’ or actually pay for something that may seem spammy. Believe me, I am the world’s biggest skeptic, especially since I live in another country. I have to decipher things even before I can understand it.
SOOOooooo now, I just want to show up and share up….with you.
So as I learn….so will you.
As I get better and share, so will you. I want to know how to maneuver through this social media marketing, SEO, affiliate marketing and all things ‘HOW TO MAKE MONEY ON-LINE.’ Come with me on this journey and let’s learn together (eh;) From a little Alaskan village girl to living in a completely different country, let’s try to make it together. I can’t do this alone so I want to take you with me through this process we call ‘life learning’ and making money.
Are you with me?!? If not, just say hi and support a sister.
IF NOT, “Come with me, Hail Mary, Run quick see, what do we have here now, do you want to ride or die…La dadada, la la la la…” Tupac….he’s my running jam. Anyways- this is my start and I’d appreciate the support.
