So its been a while since I last posted as I have suffered a minor setback in my Internet venture, which has namely been a relocation move with my existing job. In the meantime I trust everyone had a Merry Christmas and hopefully is not still on a Turkey diet!
In a nutshell I have moved to Birmingham (from London) for a placement for approximately 18months. The benefits being that I will have a lot more time to spend on leisure and more importantly my Internet venture as I have moved away from a crowded commute on the tube to a short walk to work (which is bliss!).
The downside is that I never knew how difficult it would be, and what a lengthy process, to get the internet set up!! After getting messed around and made to wait by 2 seperate providers, which I will decline to name at this stage, I have finally gone back to BT and got the internet sorted after about 2 months!! Who would have thought it would be so difficult to connect a few wires and provide a service…..
The effect of this has meant that with relying on a desktop and without a laptop, something I have now rectified, and the work Internet bars I have been able to do very little on my internet business. However much of a setback this is it has given me the time to get properly settled and also to take stock of where I am, how far I have come and also to actually read and digest some of the numerous products that I have previously bought so I can combine the teachings with what Alex has taught me. So I will be fighting fit and raring to go for 2010….
First though I thought I would briefly recap on what I achieved in 2009:
- Several holidays and trips – Dublin, Amsterdam, Las Vegas, Europe
- New Job (for now!)
- House move
- New Business (Internet Venture)
- New Mentor – Alex Jeffreys
- Started a mailing list – 600 names and counting
- Launched 8 websites including this blog
- Earnt my first $’s online
Its only when I actually wrote it down that I have realised that all in all quite a bit has happened in my life including some significant events in this last year!!
So what does 2010 have in store……
At this stage I am drawing together my revised plans; business, entrepreneur and personal which I talked about in my early post Failing to Plan is Planning To Fail which I will publish on here in due course.
Safe to say stepping up my Internet venture will be critical for me next year as I look to replace my job income with one earned online so I can take the next step and give up working for someone else!
I hope that you will continue with me as I share my experiences both good & bad on this journey to online success and financial independence……
All that remains to say is thank you for your support and I wish you all a Happy New Year and the Best of Success for 2010!!
