最近一个月，为了写这个部落，天天都在网上学些有关网页的东西。很多时候， 我会很懊恼，因为有些东西，我怎样学都学不懂。最近，听说这位朋友的公司很忙。突然，想到，我现在学懂了一些简单的网页常识，可能不会太笨手笨脚了。而且，除了学习商业上的经验，我也真的想学基本的网页设计。真的是一举两得 ！
Ed has a friend is a working wife and mother. She owns a website design company, though is not a very big business, it financially supports the family.
When I first arrived in Toronto, I thought of volunteer myself to do some simple works in the company. For me, it is mainly to learn more about the small business operations and management in Canada. Such experience will help when I am ready to open my own Chinese medicine clinic in Toronto. However, I did not pursue further because I realised I did not have any basic knowledge or skills in website design, I would only create more troubles for them.
In the past month, in order to blog and maintain this blog more “professionally”, I went all out to learn more about blogging and some basics on website promotions and etc online. There were always things I never understood no matter how many websites I tried to read and learnt. It really frustrates me.
At this time, we heard that this friend’s company is extremely busy. Suddenly, it occurs to me that I might be able to help instead of creating troubles, since I now have more understanding and basic knowledge in website. In fact, I am not only want to learn the small business management skills, I also really want to learn about website design. This would be a “kill two birds with one stone” opportunity !
We wrote an email to her to offer my volunteer work. On Sunday, she called me and said that she has some ideas what and how I can help. I was very happy and agreed to go to her office to “work” on Wednesday (ie tomorrow) !
When I think of it now, for all my work experiences they were only in retail industry, this will be my first office experience. Although I do worry about my incompetency, I am looking forward for this new adventure.
