I thought I’d opened up a nice conversation with you 🙂
As summer goes, I realize I will probably have to sacrifice spending long days enjoying the beautiful nice hot weather in order to make my company grow. Not that i’m complaining about it. I’m enjoying every bit of the journey. There has been many roller-coasters and I know many more are to come.
One of the first obstacles I faced was earlier this year when something kept us from publishing the book we spent so much time writing. I took it as a sign from the Universe and decided to postpone the publication to really focus on my true passion: web and application development. I first started programming I was 17 years old. As many of you already know, my love for technology started even earlier in my early teenage years.
Somehow down the road, I forgot how engineering websites, web applications, software and the like, made me feel. I simply do not see time go by when I dive in the strange and sometimes overwhelming world of code, A.I and programs. It feels like a second nature. I get in the zone and it feels like my life is right again. I get butterflies in my stomach as if I’m falling in love. It makes me smile, it makes me happy.
Although, I do not make a cent out of what i’m doing right now and it feels kind of lonely and overwhelming at times, the gain I get from engineering programs or even just landing a successful code snippet after long hours of frustrating debugging, is priceless. Working for myself, setting objectives, meeting deadlines and achieving little goals, make me feel alive.
I have tried starting two companies in the past and they both failed hard. But with a lot of self-examination, today I know why they failed: Not only I was inexperienced but A) I was doing it for the wrong reasons and B) I wasn’t truly following my purpose (both companies were not really related to my passion).
But life is life I guess. Sometimes we need to fall hard in order to get back up. So here I go again on the uncertain, sometimes, discouraging, dark entrepreneurial road. However, this time I got a good feeling because I do things that I was never willing to do. For example, I wake up at 6am every morning to find prospects and write cold emails. As the day goes by I work on our website and do some more programming until very late at night. I even find myself going to bed when the sun wakes up. Time flies when you enjoy what you do!
Ever since I started letting go of the things that do not serve me anymore, like my toxic relationship with my ex who wanted to stay friends with me, I have started to heal significantly. I have hope and faith.
Anyways… enough rambling, what about you? Are you working on something? If yes, what is it that you are trying to accomplish? There is no such thing as a small dream. If it’s big for you, you dream big 🙂
Let’s have a chat if you feel like, i’m really opened!
PS: here the website we’re working on: http://wm24hinc.com/ . That’d be nice if you could land us a little visit and tell me what you think. Please take note it is still a work in progress. Many pictures have to be modify for a more aesthetic view.
I’d also be delighted in seeing your work if it’s online or like I said above, learn more about your journey that you are currently going through.
Infinite peace and wisdom!
