So this is my first ever WordPress blog post. I’ve had blogs in the past using various systems but I was fortunate enough to have a client who was working in a wordpress blog and I liked, so thought I would give it a try.
So why “Adventures in the Great Beyond”? Well – I’m in that wonderful “mid life crisis” time of life where the past is dimming and the future is starting to look not only finite but short enough for me to want to hurry everything I’m doing along a bit. To understand this better, I suppose I’d better fill you in on some background.
I’m almost 50 now. Been married twice, have three great kids, moved countries and now live in the USA. I’ve had what you could call a multi faceted career path which appears to have landed me at a stage where either I’m overqualified or too old for almost everything I want to do for a living with someone else. After a few months of this you realize it’s time to get creative, and set up something that should enable me to survive into my twilight years. Of course being me – this is a lot more complicated than it sounds. I have deep roots in a lot of completely disparate areas, including skateboarding, snowboarding, surfing, biotechnology, quality management, product development, engineering management, author, trainer and webmaster.
I’ve been looking for something that makes sense to me at this stage of life. I’d love to have the stable career path with a great company but that just hasn’t happened so far. So off I go – on an Adventure in the Great Beyond! Watch this space – it could just get interesting.
