Monthly wrap – bye bye facebook and I think I finally know what makes me tick…


Wow I suck at blogging and lately I just haven’t been inspired to write.  When I do write something it’s forced and doesn’t feel organic at all and I think when I do that the writing suffers.  This is only my second post for the entire month of September which is awful, but I’m happy to say that I got a lot of good shit going on in my life and I’ve been too busy or too tired to blog.

First off, I deleted my Facebook page.  I’m starting this company and our goal is to launch October 1st, but I think realistically we won’t be ready until a week or two into October and I know it’s going to be a huge success.  I know this, because both me and my business partner are currently bringing in a shitload of business for the company that we work for now, and if we can do it for them, we can do it for us – no question.  At this point we are just getting some final things worked out and everything will be good to go.  As of now the split is as follows:

Me: 33.3%

Business Partner: 33.3%

Attorney: 33.3%

We are all in this together and I’m cool with that.  It’s time that I make myself millions because enough is enough with all of the bullshit I’ve been dealing with the last few years.  My goal was to make my first million while I was in my 20’s.  I’m going to be turning 30 this upcoming February, so I may be a bit late, but if I am on my way towards my goal I don’t think I’ll bitch and complain much.  🙂

I decided to delete my Facebook page.  To be honest I wasn’t spending that much time on there but it got to the point where I started thinking to myself, “this is fucking stupid.  People post the dumbest shit on here.”

Facebook poster: “OMG!!!! I saw the hottest guy at Walmart today!!!! :)”

Seriously? Really?

Not to mention that everyone and their fucking mom is on Facebook now and I absolutely HATE doing what everyone else is doing.

Combine that with the launch of my company and I just decided to cancel my account.  I don’t want clients or customers looking me up on there, and to me, millions of dollars is a hell of a lot more important then Facebook status updates.

On another note, I completely killed this month and blew production out of the water.  I was put on formal notice that I had to hit a number of deals this month or my ass was gone and I fucking surpassed that shit and kept on trucking.  I’m so proud of myself for being able to step up to the plate when the pressure was on and knock one out of the park.  October is a new month and I’ll be starting at zero again like everyone else, however at least I know I have a job for another 30 days, and the more income I can earn and save the better.  My goal is to have 10k+ in my account before I quit and I think I’ll be alright.  Ideally 15k-20k would be nice.

So here’s what’s going to happen with the new company.  We will start selling for it on the side.  Once packages start to come in consistently, I’m going to quit with my current employer and go 100% full force.  This may only take 2 weeks, or it may take 2 months, I’m not sure; but the issue with my current employer is that I wanted to quit when I was ready and not a moment sooner than that.  If they fired me, I know it would have created some financial problems that I’m not ready to deal with right now.

I have to make sure I can pay my bills and put food on the table; PERIOD.

Life is good, work is good, and the business looks promising.  Another meeting with the attorney tomorrow(Friday) and hopefully that meeting is a final;

“Ok we need to do this, this and this, and we are ready to go!” type meeting…

Lastly, I think after all of these years I’ve finally been able to figure out what I love to do and what really gets me motivated and inspired to work.  It’s starting a business.  The business could deal with anything; it doesn’t matter, but to me it’s the act of starting that business and building it, watching it grow and develop and ultimately become successful.  That’s what I love to do.  I’m seriously an entrepreneur in my heart and in my soul, there is no other way to describe it.

I remember when I was just a corporate bitch sitting in a cube working my ass off.  I remember seeing suits walking into conference rooms and sitting down for hours at a time discussing different aspects of business and I would always think, “hmm, I wonder what they are talking about?  Corporate buy out?  Expansion?  Promotions?  Firings?”  It always bothered me that I was on the outside of the glass looking in.

Now that I’m one of those guys in those meetings, discussing our organization and where it’s heading and what it can become, I’m truly happy.  I like being a guy on the “inside,” a player who is part of the game and making moves; not some expendable pawn that ultimately doesn’t mean a damn thing.

That’s what makes me tick.  Being a King or Queen in life’s game of chess, not a fucking pawn.
