It’s time to take a new direction. It really is.
No, I’m not leaving the job I have to get a new one – I’m merely going to be enhancing my abilities and perhaps making a few bucks on the side. How, you ask? No, I’m not buying Bruce A Berman’s money-making course or going to SMC or anything like that…..I mean…..why pay for something to make you money when you can think of it on your own. People are only limited by the size and scope of their imagination, and I’ve figured out some things that I can easily do.
So what is my madcap, yet possibly brilliant plan? Well, it’s two-fold, really……
I am going to finish up my A+ studies and get certified. If you monkey around with computers and operating systems as much as I have in recent years, this will be a snap. It’s just a document that says “hey, this hoopy frood knows where all his computer stuff is” – that’s about it. Yes, I did say I thought certs were somewhat silly, but we all must make SOME sacrifices (and you don’t have to wear a tie to get one).
Second, I’m expanding my CafePress.com store here soon, and will start putting more nifty items out for sale, full of art and wit, and see if people might be interested in something that I might have done. I will be working on doing original digital art, so at least it’ll be stuff that you can’t easily find somewhere else.
Will this work in this out-of-the-way area, way up north? Well, I don’t know if anyone I know has actually SEEN what is going on up here lately, but it’s been expanding, and I’m talking in a BIG way. There are some pretty sizeable companies that are coming up here, figuring out that, hey….it might be profitable up here, and moving this way! Granted, it’s no Denver or LA, but it is growing.
And this stuff I can do on my off-time while still holding down my regular job, so there will be no risk of losing anything that we already have here, and it can only add to it. I’ve been learning more about eBay as well, so when I have things to sell, I can figure out how much they might be worth, and perhaps make some more money there too!
I have the starting points……….now to just build from them.
