I was pretty much on vacation for an entire month without doing anything. Well, it seems I need more things to do with my time than ever. Now that I’m not at work 63+ hours a week (or 84+ hours on the boat), I need to fill my time up with things I am passionate about. Lately, I’ve been pursuing a business loan, fixing/cleaning up my home and seeking funding from VCs.
Well, I need more.
First off, I am getting back into my business and updating my other websites. NetworkersDebut.com definitely needs some work and this blog needs a little more love.
Secondly, I am helping my wife with a new project that should bring in a substantial amount of income. It’s also something she is passionate about so I see no harm in it. This in itself will be a great test of my abilities and can be referred back to in future training/projects.
Thirdly, I am starting a part-time job at a local Internet company that requires my marketing knowledge. Compared to my Navy job, I’ll be working less hours but making much more. It feels good to know that the company actually wants me there because of my creativity and knowledge. I always wanted to be able to do more than just a home business.
I just realized I’ve been doing things backwards! Most people go from working at the office to wanting to work from home and yet I’m trying to go from working at home to the office. I mean, it’s nice working from home and it has its perks, but I simply get more work done at an office. When the time comes, I’ll probably just rent a space close by and go there to work.
I’ve made up my mind – that’s what I’ll do.
