In every person’s life there comes a time when it feels like there’s a convergence of too many things coming at the same time. Sometimes those things are good; sometimes those things are bad. Sometimes those things are just what they are. Sounds kind of poetic doesn’t it?
Over the course of almost 14 years, I’ve put together a lot of content. It started on my business blog back in 2005, I continued it with this blog starting in 2007, and I’ve added other blogs over the years.

Want to know how I decided to go into business for myself and why I do all the things I do? Check it out, comment, share and give me a bit of love on it. I don’t ask often but hey, how many people make it 15 years working on their own? 🙂
