The worst week of work I’ve had in a LONG, LONG time is finally coming to a close. I won’t go into details here. They’re not important anyway. I have finally made the decision that it is time for me to “explore other opportunities.” On some level, I’ve known for two years but I kept finding myself getting reeled back in by the next big project or the potential for new growth in business. All I’ve ended up doing is wasting those 2 years. My skills have stagnated and I had become too comfortable with the low-level misery to be willing to give up the pay and benefits. After all, I have a mortgage to pay and a household to support.
I’ve been like the hound on the porch wimpering because he sat on a nail but isn’t motivated to get off of it. Well, the time has come to get off that nail and get back to growth and a healthy work situation.
I’d like to take the leap and go into business for myself, but I’m having trouble isolating what kind of business that would be. The most natural move would be into web design as I’ve been doing it *GASP* since the 90’s. I’m well versed in WordPress and less so in Joomla, and both are far better than the way we used to do it — hand coding HTML. I also have a pretty extensive eBay auction background. I’d love to help you with either of these.
I’m a bit of a website snob these days and I have a hard time tolerating poor design (which makes me cringe every time I see the current header of this site). The area that I see really needs some help is the restaurant industry. Either a restaurant has a fantastic, well-executed site or it is completely awful or even non-existent. I think I could really help some people in what is truly a cut-throat industry.
Please pray for God to help me with my vision of the next steps of my work life. If you have any suggestions or encouragement, I’d gladly accept it.
