Such a dejecting title. Alas, it is such a refreshing act. Come June 5th, I will once again be back in the game. Two workweeks left, and I can test my meddle.
I quit my current position, so that I can return to the healthier lifestyle that I advocate. I have now set it in my schedule to spend time with my daughter and wife in the mid-afternoon for a few hours, then return to evening meetings. This will be a beacon for my days.
Don’t get me wrong – I highly enjoy working with small businesses on projects, and can’t wait to jump with both feet. But, the micro-step that was taken was to bring myself home for the purposes of a healthier environment. I want you to consider your workplace: is it conducive to good health? Is your cubicle-space well ventilated, and have windows? How about walking paths nearby. Is there some form of recreation that you can partake in during lunch?
Luckily, at home I have the trailhead to the Mac Dunn forest starting in my back yard. So, finding a good lunchtime reprieve will be easy.
I will be working from my home office, to begin with. I believe that it is important to pay attention to the budget and keeping a low-overhead monthly expense, when starting any new business.
There are some fantastic work spaces locally, that I would love to co-inhabit, or rent-out. But, initially it is important to stay lean.
I will update you as the business progresses. Websites and small business consulting will be the game. Andy Vaughn is my name.
