Ever Wish You Had More Time to Build a Business?

What I learned from 2 years of doing almost nothing

Do you ever wish you had more time to do the things you want to do? Most entrepreneurs, freelancers, and writers do. There just never seems to be enough time to do all the things we want to do or write all the content we want to write.

I’ve had jobs for 30 years with an occasional break between jobs or relocations. During all those years, I knew I wanted to start my own business at some point.

In 2007, I self-published my first book. It was an award winner. I wanted to write even more books, or maybe start a blog, but there was one thing that seemed to hold me back. That limiting factor was time.

In 2019, I decided that I was gonna give writing a second shot. But where do I find the time? My schedule seemed as full as can be with the 2 jobs I already had.

Like most people, I always thought that if I didn’t have to work, commute, pay bills, and have all these other responsibilities, I would be a writing machine.

I envisioned myself spending every waking hour writing. I definitely didn’t lack topics to write about. I always felt that I had at least 5 good books in me.

And then in late 2019, Covid hit. Both my jobs were evaporated.

Without going into the details of how this happened, I found myself living in a hotel suite for free, a situation that was almost too good…

I question everything...and then write about it. I'm probably not going to help you "make money writing." But I might teach you a thing or two ..or not.
