I'm in my mid 40s, Part-time or Full-Time Job is suitable for me?
My kids are grown up now. I am planning to step into the society since I had been a housewife for the past 10 years. I wonder at age 40, should I start looking for a part-time or full-time job. Which is suitable for me? What would you suggest?
I am in my mid-40's too. I would probably only work part time. But if you have the energy, I say go for full time.
The answer to this question should definitely take into consideration what you feel comfortable doing and how much time do you want to devote doing it? Do you enjoy instructing others? Would you prefer working with a group or solo? How much patience do you have? It may sound like answering a question with other questions but understanding your desires and basic needs will be a factor not only in whether you work full or part-time but the type of work you do? Have you ever considered self-employment?
I say go full time. You still have 20 -25 years left to build a successful career. You can also be saving for retirement. If you don't have the skills for a career, go to school and get the skills you need for the job of your dreams.
I have gone through your profile, and I will highly recommend making your career as an Individual Expert/Consultant. Since you are a great writer and surely you are passionate about it, so you can convert your hobby into your profession.
You just need to start creating your brand as a global expert. Which is available on demand for premium services.
You can also write small recipe books (Asian foods, Cakes, Cookies etc) which can generate the good amount of money. These books can be sold digitally.
I heard that e books could fetch good amount of money. Which ebook program should I use for my recipes?
Peachy, you can check Payhip, Amazon Kindle Direct Publish, Blurb, Lulu, Tradebit, NOOK Press, Kobo Writing Life etc. Here you can publish your ebook. Hope it will help you.
Peachpurple, if you are a foodie, what about becoming a nutritonist? Or, starting a cooking class/programme in schools? Team up with a well known chef/restauranter for support as well as for marketing.
Do schools have vegetable gardens over your way? You can use their produce and teach children healthy cooking/eating recipes together with where food actually comes from. I know I was totally taken aback when a 6 year old thought peas came from a frozen packet. He had no idea they come from a plant. What do you think?
Here , a nutritonist must have a diploma qualification of the course, I don't have that, also must work in the related field, I have not work for the past 10 years already. To work in restaurant, I can only be the kitchen crew
Okay... but the door could still be open to being a educational foodie? Just a thought. Try not to negate yourself because you were at home.Running a home and family is a multitasking managerial role to the T. Well. tabletop food & family book?
It depends on what you like doing best. Any job is worth a try but if you are not happy with that job then its senseless doing it. Anything you do from the heart and love your challenges then that is what you should do. Think positive and be up for anew challenge but only if you like to that job.
It depends if you need the money from a full-time job. If money is not an issue, then go for part-time. You can even volunteer at some place. If it was me, I would do more volunteer work at the American Legion and maybe VA center. As mentioned in another post, you can work in the Kitchen Crew is a restaurant. Some places offer certification training where you do not have to go to college.
I'm finding that working several separate "jobs" is good. I write, edit, proofread, blog and tutor writers. I'm in my mid-40's and have only been doing what I am, for about 15 years.
If you look online for opportunities, you'll probably find several opportunities. Have you thought about using your expertise and knowledge to start a www.wordpress.com blog to communicate where you've been and what you've accomplished?
Its simple u r in good health condition then take full time job otherwise take the otherone
