I started playing "business" for myself just under 2 years ago. In that time I've had partners, affiliates, freelancers, outsourcers and just about anything else you could list.
But on February the first my company moves into its own offices in central London -
duncannon street - Google Maps
And shortly after my first full time, salaried, employee will be joining us there. I've been courting him for the last few weeks and he's just handed his notice in at his current job ... Success!
I attribute large amount of the success I've experienced directly to the knowledge I've gained from Allen Says and this very forum. So thank you Allen, thank you Warrior Forum and thank you to all the many, MANY Warriors whose advice has made this possible.
I know this kind of "success" doesn't really fit with most people around here's goals. You want stories of 24/7 parties, golden beaches and money pouring from the heavens for little to no work.
Well I can say I played that game for a little over a year. It was fun, but it just wasn't enough for me. So last summer I decided to get serious and things got big fast.
So what's the point of this post?
1 - To say thank you
2 - To brag ... so sue me
3 - To seek out advice from anyone who has walked this path before. If you've got any words of wisdom about my first office and first full time hire, I'd love to hear it
Sincerely, thank you,
