Today I was supposed for the first time to go back to my own office space and rake in more customers to my web consultant business. I was supposed to start, after 3 weeks of leave due to the birth of Jay, to plug the whole in my credit account.
But instead I went to my office space and did a lot of thinking.… Read more
I wasn’t able to choose, and this is painful to admit. I have tried everything from writing novels to creating niche information businesses online and I have given up before going very far, or finishing products.
I haven’t been consistent and persistent, and that is the truth. I wanted the quick fix.… Read more
But of course I couldn’t … switch work and so.
I could just go to Big Client no. 1 and take up the reins again after my leave due to the birth of Jay. And then go catch up with other minor clients and find new clients.
And what a real bug of a day.… Read more
Was very tempted to download a game tonight, perhaps one of my old strategy games. Exhausted after meetings and clients but … no.
If I want to change my life this is the last chance.
Every scrap of free time can’t be polluted with noise from the Internet of ‘sweets’ for my brain, like a game.… Read more
After a long day at Somewhat-But-Not-Quite-Too-Much-Major-Client, I wondered if I shouldn’t just make an effort to find more … clients? Currently, I have 4-5 depending on how you count, and the former makes up about 80 per cent of the income from all of them, taken together. Not a good show.… Read more
So I went to a client today to teach him how to do a webshop in Woocommerce/Wordpress, and for a moment I got distracted by the fact that his apartment is so much bigger, nicer and better than ours. Dumb, but true.
It’s there, by the harbor, in one of the new apartment projects that shot up in the City these last decades or so.… Read more
Steve Pavlina asks in his article “The Endgame of Passive Income” that you imagine a time when all your material needs and desires are met by passive income, e.g. royalties from a book-series. Then what?
Will you just sit and watch the Internet Noise all day? Play golf? What?
If you can’t answer that question satisfactorily then you are heading in the wrong direction trying to create passive income (which is never wholly passive anyway – a book needs to be written and marketed, after all).… Read more
Perhaps this is the time in the movie of my life when they are going to play “The Eye of the Tiger” while I go out to jog again and get into shape.
Instead of going to play again or watch a video and try to hide from the fact that I’ll be 43 soon and haven’t figured out much yet.… Read more
On a train journey to visit my parents I tried to relax, but was still thinking about the company – my company and its fragile future.
In particular, I was thinking about what would motivate me to do what I needed to do to earn more money.
Strange as it sounds, I didn’t feel I had the ‘right’ motivation.… Read more
Today I was close to being momentarily caught in despair.
Over not having a job.
Or an income from other sources – such as an enterprise, large enough to cover my living costs.
And over my insurance running out next year.
And that a child is coming along for the ride some months before that.… Read more
