Ok. So, I tried to be brave and do a newspaper route to earn extra income. When I started I didn't think that it required bravery. It was simply slinging newspapers out of my car window, right? Quite wrong for me.
One of the newspaper managers rode with me to show me the route and exactly what to do. There were about 100 houses to throw papers to and only about 10 or so where you could easily throw from the car window and it successfully land on their porch. So, basically I had to get out of my car and walk close to their porch and throw it on there.
Mind you, that this occurs in the wee hours of the morning while it is still dark. And spooky. And I would be doing this alone. Me, getting out of my car alone to throw a newspaper on someone's porch. And if it is not done properly, i.e. not thrown on the porch or on the steps, complaints will be lodged against you. So, you have to do it right.
Well, I chose to not go back to do it. I wish that I were brave enough to sling papers and earn extra money. Actually $900/month and I wouldn't have to worry about putting my son in daycare. But, I'm a coward. And, I really wish that I could earn this money that is so desperately needed.
Am I a coward that needs to conquer these fears so that I can be a stay at home mom? Would you take the opportunity?
