OMG Stop Complaining

Sheesh- if you had such a bad experence maybe you shouldnt have picked the client there are tons of others to choose from did u think working from home was gonna be easy.you have your own bussiness.i personally worked for the cell phone client and i was struggling at first but then i got the hang of it and i accually got promoted to supervisor in a short period of time. just because it wasnt for you doesnt mean u need to bad mouth the company

That I would have to work

I thought working from home would be loads of fun and I'd have a ton of free time. Not if I wanted to succeed! It's a real job, and I had to suck it up and deal with it. Love it now though!

Accounting

I wish I'd paid more attention in the one accounting class I'd taken in college. It was enough for me to decide I didn't want to be an accountant. But now I wish I knew more!
