This week I have been all about maximizing my time and opportunities that come my way. There have been a lot of changes but I am also all about execution.
Email Marketing – Carla’s Corner
I have decided to release two Carla’s Corner emails this week instead of the usual one. Here in the US, the $600 weekly pandemic unemployment assistance (PUA) will stop July 25, 2020. Although the federal program end date is July 31, 2020, that day is a Friday. This means that it is not a full extra week as most states’ unemployment claims period start on Sunday.
The first Carla’s Corner talked about financial resources and agencies that you can use to help you before your money runs out. I am all about helping my subscribers prepare before it all hits the fan. The second Carla’s Corner comes out today and it’s about family meal planning on a budget and food preservation. 45 million unemployed Americans need this type of knowledge. I am giving this to my subscribers.

Also in my email newsletters are my Paycheck Protection Program and Emergency Injury Disaster Loan program information. Furthermore, this week I am learning more about the new Ensured Increased Disaster Loan (EIDL) Act – Senate bill 4227 co-signed by US Senators Cornyn and Rosen to help restore the full $10,000 EIDL cash advance (the grant portion that I do not have to repay).

Friday Mike Griffiths, one of the original 12 men who PMI grandfathered into its new PMI-ACP (Agile Certified Practitioner) certification, sent me a LinkedIn connection. This proved the fact that somebody was always watching and the importance of Projectized project management show and consistency. Since January 2019, I have consistently pumping out content on Projectized on Periscope, YouTube and Instagram Live
No False Starts
This is a new epiphany that I have just had. I read somewhere that a woman celebrating her 6th PMP anniversary failed that exam three times! I was surprised because I thought that you could only take that PMP three times in your life and if you failed then you were disqualified. Obviously that was not the case.
My problem also was the time and money squandered by multiple failures. I took 8 certification exams, passing 6 the first time. The 2 that I failed, I passed on the second try. For me, these certification exams and degrees were ‘go time’ for me. I was not going to stagnate my career and income through failing the same certification exam multiple times. You should not either!
FYI – CompTIA is now offering Cloud+ beta exam for $50 from Now Until October.
