Q) You're a pretty rad chick.
A) That's not really a question but thanks for noticing! :)
Q) Why should I hire you?
A) Well, I've been working full-time since I was 12 years old. Seriously. If that doesn't prove to you that I have an unusually awesome work-ethic, just stop reading now. I also have a tendency to get personally invested in projects and make sure that they get finished on time and with excellent quality. I firmly believe that "good enough" is NOT good enough! Also, I know the difference between words like your/you're, their/there/they're and it's/its so I won't make your company look unprofessional due to crappy grammar. If you're still interested, check out my résumé and get in touch!
Q) Your résumé says that you're currently working two full-time jobs. How is that possible?
A) Easy! I love what I do and I have amazing time-management skills. Job #1 gets my complete attention during regular business hours. When I leave for the day, job #2 (which I work remotely) becomes my main focus. I make sure that each employer gets my full commitment and I really do enjoy keeping busy!
UPDATE: As of July, 2012, I have left my cubicle desk job, but my workload certainly hasn't gotten any lighter! I'm proud to now own my own business, a very successful marketing company which specializes in motorsports and the automotive industry. Learn more at P.TEN Marketing.
Q) I'd like to hire you but you don't live anywhere near me and/or my company. Any ideas?
A) Glad to hear it! Luckily for you, I am available to work remotely as a virtual employee so we don't have to worry about pesky things like geographic restrictions.
Q) But I don't want a virtual employee. Can you convince my otherwise?
A) I sure can. Think about this: if you were to hire someone locally in-house, you would wind up having to pay lots of employee-associated costs such as benefits, insurance, vacation time, etc. If you were to hire me as a remote employee (i.e. contract or freelance) you'll wind up saving a ton on extraneous costs and my quality of work will be just as good as, if not better than, someone physically in your office. Additionally, since I'm not bound by the confines of the standard 9-5 office hours, I have significantly more flexibility when it comes to meeting your deadlines!
Q) I heard you're getting married soon. Congratulations!
A) Thanks! I almost can't believe it; I feel like such a grown-up and that's totally WEIRD! If you're looking for info on the wedding itself, hit up our disgustingly cute couples site at AinsleyAndErik.com.
UPDATE: We were married on June 9, 2012, and it was freakin' amazing. :)
Q) This site is pretty, um... ...girly. What's up with that?
A) To be honest, I'm not a girly-girl. I'm not into hair or makeup or fashion or any of that stuff but I am proud to admit my favorite color is "pink sparkly" (yes, that IS a real color, thankyouverymuch). I actually put together the original layout for this site while I was in college to match a personal letterhead I had designed in a print publishing course. So, that explains it!
Q) "SR20DETg20girl"? What the heck does that mean?! Is it even English?
A) Eh, I guess it's English if you consider "gearhead" a dialect. Anyway, I'm really big into motorsports and racing. The engine in my car is called a SR20DET: Nissan's "SR" engine family, 2.0 liters, Dual Overhead Camshafts, Electronic Fuel Injection, Turbo (ah, love that little word). The "G20" part is a reference to the car itself - a 1993 Infiniti G20. And the "girl" part pretty much goes without saying. Hope that helps clear it up!
Q) Your name is unusual; how do I pronounce it?
A) Yep, I'm definitely unique! It's pronounced "AIN-slee" (rhymes with "rain" just minus the "R"). PLEASE DON'T CALL ME ANSLEY - that's not my name and it makes me very sad when I correct someone multiple times and they still insist on calling me that. You would get upset if I kept mispronouncing your name, too! :*(
