My family and I have moved to Bend, Oregon.
The mountains, rivers, and lakes are beautiful here. With 300 days of sun, it’s hard to imagine a more spectacular outdoor-adventureland.
Only three short-hours away from Corvallis, I will still be consulting on a regular basis. However, I will not be doing any more in-person meetings in Corvallis. I will be looking to pick up some local Bend clients, once I hit my stride and learn a new schedule with Stacey – who is now teaching math at Summit High School – and Lily, our two year old daughter.
It appears there is a strong media demographic here. The 2010 Bend WebCAM conference is coming up, and I think it would be a great opportunity to put my feelers out there, testing the market pulse.
Otherwise, I’m learning the new demographic makeup here, and the differences in businesses. There are many more recreation-sports businesses in Bend, than Corvallis. I think this goes perfectly with my background. We’ll see.
