Priorities and Excuses
Several months ago we did some soul searching. We looked at our business activities, the results we were achieving, and what direction we want to move. Most were moving in the right direction needing just a few minor modifications.
Wealth and Wisdom was a different story.
We started Wealth and Wisdom as a site to provide small businesses and micro-entrepreneurs resources. Our plan was to become the place to go if you needed tools, products, or advice. Wanting to stay at the forefront of technology, we investigated RSS feeds and blogs.
And somehow I co-opted the entire enterprise to become my bully pulpit. In the process it became another obligation: I must post every week no matter what. None of this helped us move towards freedom.
So we changed priorities and focused our energy on building our other businesses. We also stopped trying to force Wealth and Wisdom into a cash machine, and kept it dedicated to our journey as entrepreneurs.
And now to the excuses
At the same time, life has gotten complicated. Selling our house, working hard to hit my sales quota (day job), building two side businesses, family, etc….These have all absorbed a ton of time. Things like blogging took a back seat.
Yep, it’s an excuse. These was always an hour each week to post. And now that the pressure is off me to make it profitable, I can write the things I want. I can explore my continuous personal development. I can write about the things I learn while growing our businesses. I can write about my job and not worry that it makes me less of a guru.
I still plan on posting regularly. I enjoy writing, and getting it on paper (or the screen) helps me clear my head, organize my thoughts, and work through challenges. I also have enjoyed building my own little corner of cyberspace. I am thankful that you have stuck with me, some of you for over two years!
