It’s Been a While… Here’s What I’ve Been Up To

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. Just wanted to give you all a quick update on what I’ve been doing lately.

Not sure if I mentioned it before, butΒ my dad owns a tree service company. He was out in an upscale neighborhood working on a landscaping job about two months ago. The owner of the house came out to the front lawn and they started talking. Turns out, the guy owns a concrete construction company and was looking for a business partner. He asked my dad if he knew anyone, and he said, “no, but I’ll ask my son β€” he’s pretty business-savvy.”

(Thanks, dad.)

Long story short, I ended up becoming an investment partner for this guy’s business. Right now, he mostly builds concrete countertops for people in the Charlotte, NC area, but he’s looking to grow it into a large-scale, full-service concrete construction company in the next year or two. He hired me to help him in exchange for equity and part-ownership.

So for the last 2 months, I’ve been working on a business growth strategy and marketing plan with a few of my colleagues and haven’t really had as much time to post on this blog; but I do plan to get back to it soon. Wanted to give my readers an update, just in case you were wondering where I’ve been… I figured all 3 of you deserved an answer, especially since my website analytic reports are showing that you keep coming back looking for more. πŸ˜‰Β ThatΒ means you’re loyal. I like loyal…

Anyway, please make sure and check back next week for another post on the topic of how to build a solid growth plan for your start-up business.

Hey, I might as well write about it since I’ve been doing it for the last 2 months, right?


The world is your oyster…

I hope you’ll pardon the cliche, but WordPress happened to use “Hello World” as the title of my first post, and it brought that saying to mind.

I suppose there really is no better way to preface a new website than to say “the world is your oyster.”

I’m not really sure where this blog is going to lead me or my readers, but I believe it will be in a good direction. I won’t make any detailed plans about where to go next or what to write about, as I truly believe some of the most creative, loved masterpieces were crafted with no blueprint in mind. Not having a plan leaves space for the unknown and room for the unexpected. It opens the door to more, fostering collaboration, which brings about true change.

When we all work together toward a common goal, we can achieve that goal despite our differences.

So, here I am, with a new website and a somewhat-new career as a life coach. This blog is a blank canvas and the world is my oyster. Check back soon to see what it becomes.

Until then… πŸ™‚
