I feel like I’m letting you guys down… I’m struggling to post as the days progress. The beneficial thing is it shows that I’m busy. The only thing is I feel like I’m doing “busy work” and not getting work done. But “little by little, bit by bit” I’m making it happen. I enjoy wordpress since I feel I can reflect on this like my journal, albeit a public journal. I want you guys to get some glimpses as to what goes on in my life, and that’s why my blog has the name that it has. Where did I leave off? I believe I mentioned my netbook problem and I found a new operating system (Slax 7). I remember my netbook was running faster with Windows 7… I think it’s because the thing boots from a 4GB flash drive that may be slowing it down. I was thinking of getting a bigger flash drive to see if that would work, or the alternative would be to install on a hard drive. It appears the maker of the operating system didn’t design it to do that, but that’s what I’m in the IT business for: to learn how to hack (make things do what I want them to do). I like languages, and it appears with Linux you have to learn a different language to communicate with it. Chinese anyone? heheh. I want to learn Chinese, but Linux doesn’t deal with the Chinese language, unless you choose that language for the system to utilize.
I want to stay focused on 3 things: running a successful business, becoming a National Master in chess, and taking care of my family. I believe the first plays into the next two… let me know if you disagree. So, I was able to hustle some money together (thanks to a buddy of mine) where I was able to make close to $600 in 3 days! (And it was legal!) I’m thinking if I could do that for my business, I would be set! My goal is to make $100K in the first year, albeit I haven’t made a dime yet, but I was informed that during the holidays that IT assistance becomes a vital factor for companies. I pray I get to see that happen. I’m still marketing and trying to find out what’s the best way and who’s the best people to speak to about launching the business off the ground. I’m not too concerned about the government closing down partially since it appears this is being done to make a statement (if you recall, earlier this year there was going to be another shutdown, and I don’t even remember for what….).
I think I caught up on things… I still have rent wayyyy overdue (I know some of you share my pain heheh). I still haven’t been brought to court and I thought that would’ve happened. I’m just trying to play some catchup since I appreciate that I still have a roof over my head. I forgot something… I may go into marketing to raise funds for the business. I’m not an expert at marketing, but I do have a sense of humor and know when things are able to catch on. I sent an email to someone about a little diddy that I made for Little Caesars. I haven’t gotten a response, but I plan on following up.
For those who may be “black” centric, I just found “The Network Journal” that would assist entrepreneurs.
