Train people

I went to another pointless client meeting last week. When you’re self-employed you really appreciate the total and utter futility of meetings – especially as for the self-employed, in addition to the time-wasting, they also cost you money. I do sometimes wonder how we human beings have created such great and wonderful things when most of the time we seem to spend great swathes of our lives in meetings.

A while back I used to do some editing for cash, but too many people wanted a whole book read for about $20 or $50, and even now people want you to read their stories and make comments just for the fun of it. Ohers I know won't work for less than $30 an hour, but I couldn't do that.

What gets me is they show absolutely no inclination to do virtual meetings so we can all reduce our respectiove carbon footprints! That and getting our feet trodden on while travelling! ;)
