Growing increasingly desperate - I need your help!

Journal Entry: Wed Sep 21, 2011, 2:56 PM

I've just recently moved to the other side of the country for uni, and I'm just so worried that I can't even sleep... I'm worried that I won't get this job that I applied for, or any other jobs to support myself financially. I'm not like one of those lucky people who can get a grant from the governement so I have to pay for all of my travel costs, materials etc on my own ;__;

So I'm going to rely on commissions for now, but even though I've lowered my chibi commissions to their absolute minimum (at just £1/$1.55USD) no one seems to be interested. I've tried advertising on my blog, facebook, tumblr... But nothing.

I mean, you'll be getting something like this baby for only £1!

I have also just recently opened Traditional commissions which I'll charge at £5+/$7.75+ (not including delivery charges) depending on how difficult it is. It'll be on an A3 sheet of Watercolour paper with 800gsm and you'll be getting the original.

I am really desperate right now, and I really do need your help ;__; Please commission me, even if it's only £1... Every little helps. I'd even appreciate advertising me by linking me back to my commissions journal... Anything to get something out of this. I really do need it right now ;__;

It's okay! And yes that would be great ^^

Well my form of assistance is showing people how to become more independent, rather than making me into a dependency. If you want me to share my experiences with making money online doing what you already love doing, then we'll have that conversation.

What I have to share is strategy, concepts and tactics. Its all tools. There is no product, service or any one anything that can make you money. Its all about attitude. All about a paradigm shift in thinking. A hammer doesn't hammer unless you pick it up and use it, so its not so much about the availability of tools as it is having the mindset of understanding how to conduct yourself as a sovereign individual.

I don't know everything about doing this and I'm not "rolling in the money" just yet. But I can say that if I knew 10 years ago what I know now, I would be! :rofl:

But hey -- I don't plan on being dead 10 years from now so theres time, right? Hahahah. :D

Okay! Well I just want to know what I should do on a daily basis, taking in mind that I've hardly got any free days because of uni and work >_<"

Thats not how it works.

I don't have the right to tell you what to do on a daily basis. Besides even if I did, its not so simple. Because all I have to offer, is tools. You must decide how you're going to use them, because only you live your life. How I navigate my life will not work for you, because we live 2 different lives, as two different people in two different countries.

We are not clone troopers. So, you're either open to a conversation in which I can share this knowledge and you can decide FOR YOURSELF what you should be doing with those tools or not, on a daily basis -- or -- you're simply not interested in doing what it takes to empower yourself and you're looking for others to tell you what to do and offer you quick fixes.

You will learn that a tree seedling can not grow 40 feet in a day and this is no different. You will also learn that though the seedling may seem to appear to grow slowly -- that the bigger it gets and the more it expands its root structure, the more quickly it can grow taking far less time to become that much larger.

I am not offering to tell you what you should be doing, thats for you to decide. I am here to give you some seeds. Take them, or not. Water them, or not. Grow your own life as you see fit to grow it, or not.

I am offering ideas and encouraging free will choice. I have no desire to "tell you what to do" :)
