I need to look back at the posts and see when I decided to make the change in direction. I had noticed at work I was continually running into road blocks to getting things done. I just seemed to be a stupor of thought.
I was getting excited about my new direction in trying to market myself. Getting up between 3 and 4 for the past several months hasn’t been as difficult as I thought even when I have been going to bed at 11:00 or 12:00. It just seems like there is so much to do. The week before general conference It was really stressful at Micromain. Probably the most stressful week since I started working with them last November. I was just doing tech support, and finding that problems that couldn’t be solved. I didn’t have any time to do any programming or do any research on new stuff. I thought to myself. I wish I could just get laid off and then I could pursue my new direction full time.
I am now know the Lord thought that was a good idea too. I came in Monday morning, which I usually don’t do and My boss came in. I could tell by the look on his face I was being laid off. What a relief for me. Now I can spend full time pursuing what I do best. I thought maybe I would be able to get more sleep. That is not the case. I still am staying up late and getting up early. However, Now I am getting to be able to network with people everyday and write articles for my business website. It’s great.
It’s wonderful how things are working out. I already have two prospects for consulting and a guy at church today asked if I wanted to be an online teacher of a business consulting company he is running.
I also reached 10,000 followers over the weekend and hit my goal to be in the top 50 twitters in Austin by the Middle of October. I can’t say enough about how well things are going.
