I did alot of bartending in my 20s. It required late nights and isolation from the weekend warrior crowd. To summarize I was tired, I was lonely.
Reset: I did alot of video gaming in my 20’s.
While I was a gamer I would go into what some would call the “HaloHole”. Much like ketemine, you were tranquilized. Trying to get that next frag. Your brain would give you a little dopamine drip. Get that top spot and all those juicy medals in the postgame report. When I fell into these holes, I would actually start dreaming of improving tactics and trouble”shooting” methods.
Reset: I didn’t have alot of girlfriends in my 20’s, but thats another blog way far away. This is my 40’s, I’m into learning a new vocation.
Now that I spend hours:
looking at one component trying to figure why the text is spilling outside the box
sorting through my numerous index files for that “one code that worked in that one scenario”
trying to fall back into focus while my wife talks to me about the kid and yogurt
debugging for a single quo’tation
photoshopping over 3 pixels…
searching for or creating content because the same 3 photos in my various projects are getting boring
I have begun to dream about what regular people dream about, but with a twist. There is a code hiding behind the image (not visually) I am dreaming about. It can be manipulated, controlled. Not like the matrix…no Neo shit here. If I get shot in my face in my dream, I wake up.
I am a lowly restaurant manager. My wife much better than I.
I’ve always had an entrepreneur sense, but I’ve never learned how to grasp and bring my ideas to fruition. I’ve always had a passion for food oh, and I was always good at making restaurant owners more profitable.
It takes money to build your own kitchen and menu. The days popping up in a restaurant without jumping through a billion regulatory hoops is challenging especially during a pandemic.
“My wife and I have swapped off being a stay-at-home parent while the other one works their butt off as the main breadwinner. This time around while I was off working my butt off oh, my wife added so much to her plate and developed her own remote social media management business.”
How to work from home
get a cool wife
get a cool kid
get a cool house
get a cool side hustle
get a cool case of Covid-19
How do you stay in the business you’ve done for 20-plus years when germs are invading the entire globe.? The quick answer is you don’t stay in business, you got to change your business and you got a change it fast.
I found a side Hustle while working as an assistant general manager in Fort Collins Colorado. I used my simple knowledge of HTML and website building to create online training programs for businesses.
So far I’ve developed three training programs for three different restaurants. The last employers I worked for they ended up gaining three different restaurant brands online training.
My wife and I have swapped off being a stay-at-home parent while the other one works their butt off as the main breadwinner. This time around while I was off working my butt off oh, my wife added so much to her plate and developed her own remote social media management business.
We have since ran with that idea and built our own website we plan to launch our own marketing firm and have a product of online training software. This is the first of hopefully many blogs, since I’ve been home I have found that I am highly productive and I can get a lot done in 40 hours oh, I don’t have to do it for anyone else for 60 hours a week.
