Wow, it’s been suchhhhh a long time since I’ve been out into the networking world. I recently started meeting up with folks again at the end of February just to get my feet wet and mingling with others. I must say… it’s pretty refreshing!
It had been over 2 years since I went out to any local networking event and/or met with clients in the DFW area. I’ve been too busy focused on building my digital empire from home and spending more time with my family. In fact, we homeschool now. My daughter just turned 7 last month and recently started 3rd grade. She’ll be starting 4th grade by end of this year. My son is only 3, but we’ll get him started with pre-k next year.
I’ve learned a lot over the past couple of years working on my different projects and companies. I’ve made a lot of wise decisions, but I’ve also made some rather large mistakes. Such is life, right? I have also come to realize I was a bit of a hobbit for a long while and shied away from public eyes. I just enjoyed having so much more time with my family and that will never change, but it’s certainly nice to see new faces and make new friends.
Ever since I got sucked into buying a starter road bicycle and training on it, I’ve been wanting to go out more and more. Before I knew it, I was running more and this only led me to want to participate in the local community once again. So here I am, after 2 years away from the local networking events officially stepping foot into the world again.
