… for me to earn money in a way that’s enjoyable.
I’m amazed that at this stage of my life, 43, I have not been able to put my skill, experience, intuition to better use to make more money in more satisfying ways.
I’m amazed and deeply humbled.
What can redeem all of this is if I can put that insight and sense of humility to good use, for myself or others, in the future, and thus leave something of deep value behind.… Read more
An old friend pissed me off yesterday by changing her WordPress website to a software-as-service solution.
Not because I hate all SaaS or because I put in a lot of free time to teach her WP. Simply because she took off her head and walked with it under her arm into the arms of that SaaS-company and Took No Backup Of Her Old Site.… Read more
That’s the question I ask each morning when I go out in the neighborhood with Jay in his carriage, so Char can get some extra sleep.
It would also be a good question for my life currently. With regard to a number of themes.
Since I am so restricted with time and energy right now, helping raise Jay, trying to earn a minimum income regularly through my firm, and doing dishes 3 days old, this is not an easy question to answer.… Read more
Got late to the office space today and spent most of said day upgrading my company website so it looks more pro. I’m honestly tired of the standard WordPress designs. I want to show that you can do a lot with free WordPress, but I can do so with other free themes (Wordpres jargon for design templates).… Read more
Every time he sleeps, or when we think he is asleep, we try to get as much done as possible – from dishes to creative projects.
Funny. Jay might – just might – end up helping me getting more goals achieved, because I become more efficient.
I tend not to be efficient when time is not precious.… Read more
But I have the feeling it was a very good, ordinary day, where no one (I knew) died and the world didn’t blow up, and I was with my 4-week old son and his mum at home.
If I can’t remember in details, what happened on a particular day, when writing about it several days hence, then I fall back to the position that this is how it must have been.… Read more
… at least mentally, for I was tired. I had cleaned the apartment while Jay and Char went to the harbor on a trip, and done all sorts of things – paperwork, etc.
But I had to.
Those 500 words of writing per day are a saga, but I suppose I can do it again, when I start another story.… Read more
Yesterday, I heard ex-FBI-director Comey’s testimony in my earphones whilst working on a customer pitch in the Royal Library (because I had tired of the regular office space).
Today a lot of people shout ‘Watergate’ and a lot of other people don’t seem to think it is so bad yet – for the US president.… Read more
Well, at least with regard to my work … My Big Client trying to implement a major new website which is a German translation of an English website and everything just fucking up about it.
Mostly because there are too few people with the correct skills in the mix, me included, but more importantly: Too little money to pay the people who are there to work the amount of work it takes to get this done right.… Read more
Being so much more constricted as I am, with regard to time and energy, due to having to look after Jay and the home front and earn money from my own company and dealing with all kinds of difficult customers (or lack of them in the process) …
Yeah, I know it sounds like a litany of woe-me.… Read more
