A few quick notes to let everyone know about some exciting times ahead for myself and this blog.
My readers who’ve been here from the start, known that I started a company a while back with three of my friends. Well, that company never quite took off but in April of this year I started another company, The 42nd Estate, with three different friends and this time we’re getting things done and building momentum towards the launch of our first few web-sites. Over the coming weeks I’ll reveal more and more information about the company with all of you but for now let me tell you that I’m excited!
Bicycle Film Festival
As this company works towards launch more and more of my personal time will have to be devoted to making sure everything works. Now, I enjoy working and especially when I’m my own boss so it’s not a source of frustration or disappointment. Having said that, there are some social experiences I’ll miss out on over the next few weeks and months that I would normally love to go to. One such event was this past weekend’s Bicycle Film Festival, which I was scheduled to volunteer valet at but could not make it out on Saturday. Luckily, the people at MassBike had plenty of volunteers on hand and I can always attend next year’s festival.
A few weeks ago I announced a syndication deal with the Brazen Careerist site, where some posts from this blog will also be published on their site. Well, at the start of this month the Brazeen Careerist hooked me up with a few free hours with an entrepreneurship coach, Tom Volkar. Feeling that little bit of guidance was just what the doctor ordered I seized the opportunity. Over the past few weeks Tom and I have discussed a few of my goals and how to get past any obstacles preventing me from succeeding. It’s been a great experience so far and look out for a more detailed post about Tom and his coaching in the next few days.
The final note for today is an analysis of this blog. Though I’ve tried to post every day here, I’m beginning to realize that such a schedule does not really make sense for this blog. Especially over the next few weeks and months as I focus more and more on The 42nd Estate, updates to this blog will not occur so frequently. Tom and I also discussed that it wouldn’t be fair to my readers to simply post randomly though so I’ve decided to announce a minimum of two posts per week, though I’ve yet to decide if these posts will occur on the same day every week or simply two days out of the week. If you have any preferences let me know!
So to my long-time readers, if there’s a certain post or story that you’d like to see here, let me know! If you subscribed here hoping you’d read a lot more posts about a certain subject, send me an e-mail or leave a comment stating so and I’ll try to focus on such stories!
Otherwise, I’ll see you all again soon!
