Before I took a hiatus from the online scene back in 2013, I had been a member here for 5 years. From 2011 to 2013 I co-owned a successful design and marketing biz with a partner that was on the other side of the world. It worked out great. She handled client acquisition, client relations and most of the day to day things that I didn't have the patience for, while I handled web design, marketing, and contractor management. Things were looking like they were going to take off, but my partner got ill and had to take a step back. I tried to fill the void, but my youth and inexperience got the best of me and things eventually fizzled out.
At that time I had also just purchased a investment property and was looking to more into real estate, so the online world just took a back seat.
Three years later I have a few investment properties on the go, but I missed not doing anything online, so I decided to get back into it. I've recently started a blog depicting my life as a small town entrepreneur. I've got lots of things to write about over the last few years, and it's on topics I like talking about, so it should be a lot of fun.
I won't link to it yet since this is my first post, but watch for the link in my sig in a couple of weeks.
Good to be back!
