When I began accounting in ISO 9000 certification I was a member of the IRS and it was a requirement that I send in a photocopy of my IRS W-9, in order to qualify for certification, followed by a 2 x 5 index card with my business Tax ID number on it for the IRS to verify that it was accurate. As on a prince 2 Foundation training manchester.
Since I have not yet earned my Certified Public Accountant (CPA) certification, I was required to complete the Graduate Certified Professional Resume, just to prove that I had some experience different from the CRP required by the IRS. I did have that, however I never submitted my resume and a whole lot of my schooling is in the pipe work of accounting.
I only studied sales and marketing (excel and san league automation) and not project management. Until I read that book “Project Management” by Steven R. Covey, I believed that only large corporations would need to manage a project. Now knowing how much I have yet to make about $100,000 with time and expense savings, in addition to adding it to my resume, I think I might start reading some books on project management.
The biggest change started a year ago when I decided to start making money from my wonderful website by using snippets of articles from other writers. This includes the must-read “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” by Stephen R. Covey. Since this is project management “how to’s” I like them (and the ideas of Covey) a lot. If you too want to start an online business then do some research on the subject and see if you can find a good course out there. If you are already in business I highly recommend that you read “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People” as some of the subjects are the same.
I only started recently picking up the terminology for project management, as I am not a project management player when it comes to working with individuals. All my projects from scratch or with other people fall into the project category instead of individual employee project. For me to no longer be stretched for time, I feel Relief to be able to drop a project into the “career category.” The money in doing so, as anyone can tell you, is even more attractive; pay up front, work till the end of the project or it’s over, good luck with that!
