Work advice Until now I have no freelancing job as a Virtual Assistant. I have 2 mouths to feed, I did everything to get a freelancer job but no one hire's me.

There are two areas that needs to be addressed:
1. First, psychological (i.e., mental and emotional): This is not difficult, but requires some self-introspection.
Few questions that I would like you to think about:
a. Do you BELIEVE that you can get the freelancing job?
b. Suppose, you had a freelancing job as a Virtual Assistant that meets your monetary expectations. What would it mean to you? How would it make you feel?
- Now, imagine you already have this job.
- FEEL the feelings that you would have once you have this job. BE this way from this moment going forward.
- GIVE UP (no kidding!!!) ANY negative thoughts that raise any doubts in your mind (e.g., you cannot get this job, its too difficult, you are not qualified, why should I expect anything different from the past...).

In summary, do NOT underestimate the POWER of positive thoughts.

2. Second, effective actions
Few questions that I would like you to think about:
a. Do you have the skill sets for this job?
b. Do you have a resume that reflects those skill sets?
c. Are you utilizing all possible resources (job portals, people in your lives, etc.) to help you with this job?
d. Are there any gaps in your knowledge/skill-sets that might make you incompetent for that job?
e. Are you doing something to bridge that gap?

Once you get a chance to think through these questions, I would encourage you to share your thoughts for further discussion.

I like the way you motivated me like that and I have a feeling that I will get job in the future despite of the fact that I really need it now because I have 2 mouths to feed. So I thinking at the present moment on how to feed my wife and my daughter although I believe that someday I would get job my family still suffer from hunger at the moment...
