In my professional career, I worked two jobs… one in television sales coordination and management… the other in real estate marketing. Each of these gigs lasted 12 to 18 months.
With the exception of these two jobs, I have only worked for myself. Entrepreneurship has been a big part of my life. In fact, it has been the biggest part of my life.
For 20+ years, I took my interests and hobbies and morphed them into work… into a profit. Maybe I am stubborn and like to do things my way. Maybe I like control and the perceived feeling that I am steering the ship. Whatever it is, it was the way I did things.
I decided to re-evaluate my entrepreneurial drive after my last business venture matured. The next logical step was to sell the business and start another one… to earn more. After all, isn’t that what business is about?
Maybe it is mid-life
crisis reflection, but I decided to change the rules. I have enough. I don’t want more… I want less.
There will be no more businesses for me… no more real estate investments… no more looking for the next big thing. My focus is on living… doing the things I enjoy… finding things to enjoy.
The exception would be passion and a desire to help others. If I find a cause I am passionate about, I would put on my business cap again.
I am writing this surrounded by nature at Three Lakes Park in Snead, Florida… looking out onto one of the lakes, although I have no idea which lake it is. I assume it is part of a trifecta, a triad even. Feel free to Wikipedia that. I have too much useless information in my head. 😜
