Grinding through another week ...


Been a busy week again, with two clients loading in some hours on the freelance side of things, which is, of courses, a good thing, but I've not had a lot of time to dedicate to either the job search per se, or Twitter reading (although I did get a full batch together this week).

I don't know why specifically (I suppose having folks paying for chunks of my time might have something to do with it), but I've not been able to get out to as many networking events either, both this past week and next week I'd been set up to go to two, but only made one (one of next week's has been canceled).  Oh, well.

The event I did make this week was the Social Media Club of Chicago's monthly get-together, but it was sort of a special one, being up at the Metropolitan Club on the 67th floor of the "Building Formerly Known As The Sears Tower".  The facility was co-sponsoring the event, and did a very impressive spread of quite delightful appetizers.  We also had an interesting program featuring Carol Roth, whose new book, The Entrepreneur Equation (which I'm hoping to get a copy to review one of these days) is coming out in the next few weeks.  She even had one of her very amusing limited-edition "entrepreneur action figures" of herself as she appears on the jacket cover ... I wish I'd thought to snap a pic, as it was very cute having the doll standing next to the book as Carol spoke behind it!
