Financial freedom as a problogger

Posted on Thursday, May 3rd 2007 1:45 pm by menj in Offbeat

There is that sense of thrill when you get e-mail notices from PayPal every hour or so in your inbox. When you complete a job offer for an advertiser, you can do so at anytime you choose (as long as the work produced in the end is quality work, of course). I am convinced that this is the way for me and insha’allah, once I have graduated in July I will continue with this job. For those who like to complain about me being “unemployed”, they are fools. I am getting income and I am working most of the time. I guess those who are stuck in the traditional job profession mindset will continue to bitch about it, but I simply do not care.

As far as I am concerned, I am experiencing financial freedom, and I am lovin’ it.

      I got a job offer today and the employer also sent it via email. They offered me 45k a year with benefits, etc. I also got another offer from another employer yesterday which is 53k also with benefits. Both offers have pretty much similar benefits and perks.I really like the environment better with the one that offered me 45k, even though its less money. I would like to ask if they can do 50k by responding to their email offer. Is that worth risking?
      If it is worth risking, how would I ask for it?

      What’s a polite and tactful way to decline a job offer during the actual job interview? It always makes me uncomfortable when I think that I want the job, go to the interview and decide I don’t, and then have already been made an offer. How do I decline a job offer during the actual interview? I’ve tried before and the employer was pushy and wouldn’t accept my answer.

      What does a person do if they get a better job offer right after you start working for another company? Scenario: I just started working for company A one week ago. Today, I get a job offer from Company B which is the job that I really wanted. I took job A because unemployment in my state does not pay worth crap (basically min wage). Job A is $11.25/hr and job B is $15-$17 hour. How do I handle this? Job B is the job that I really wanted, but they were dragging their feet.

      When I joined my current employer, I signed a job offer (giving start date, salary and annual leave entitlement) and returned a copy to them. I am desperate to leave and only want to give two weeks notice as my previous employer had offered me my old job back. I’ve been here less than 6 months. Can they insist on me working 4 weeks notice. I have never received a formal contract. Is my job offer, my contract of employment?

      I am working at one place right now, where I do not have any problem. I tried for another job and I am offered good money and a position. They called me and give me an offer letter also. But, after giving lot of thoughts, talking to my friends, family members, relatives and office colleagues. I feel my present job is more suitable to me, mentally as well as physically & monitory also. So, how do I refuse a new job offer, by not harming my credibility and relations with them ?

      I’m on unemployment. If I get a job offer that begins in June, can I continue to collect unemployment for the next three months? Thanks.

      I was offered a job at my friends work doing the same exact job I am doing now at my current place. I feel it would be just a waste to switch for the same job, same salary, and frankly lesser benefits. However, my friend and her boss are really excited at the thought of me coming to their place of work and I get a sense that if I decline I will hurt my friend’s feelings badly. How do I go about stating a decline to the offer in a friendly way?

      I have officially accepted a job offer. Right after that I had another offfer from where I live. I’m a home owner. I’ll need to sell my house if I need to relocate. Can I decline the offer I have accepted already, so I don’t have to relocate?
