Your goals might be short term or long term or a combination of both. Hopefully you’ll be planning for the long term while realizing that short term decisions may help or hurt your ability to reach the longer term goals you set out for yourself. I came on your lens on reasons for homelessness looking for some lenses to include in the discovery module for one of my own. I’m grateful there’s a lens master with your experience and point of view on homelessness willing to publish it. I feel proud of what you’ve achieved on squidoo!
Dear Lauren, I’ve just discovered your blog. I read all your older posts and I found them very interesting. I’m glad to hear you are fine and you have a new job you love. If you don’t enjoy selling, well, it’ll be harder for you to land that dream job. Unfortunately, it’s one of those things you have to do in life.
With job openings being rare (and often requiring advanced degrees for even general labor jobs) and many people being available to fill them, employers will understandably be choosier than during better times.

Good insight the homeless problem and the many ways it can occur. Excellent lens! I would estimate that design is 20% problem solving and creativity and 80% execution. Of course this will vary from project to project, but I feel this is a fair assessment. I’ve been reading a lot of your articles and exploring many of the other VFX-related sites out there. Thank you for sharing your candid advice and experience. I hope you will be just as candid with me.
