I’m preparing to go out for my new year’s evening and I decided that now would be a great time to write a post. It’s especially a great time since I haven’t been writing on this blog for a while now. I am not gone, just focusing on my many other sites. I have to say that, as I wrote in my previous posts, it became pretty overwhelming. It still is pretty overwhelming now that I brought on my first employee and now have responsibilities that are not only to myself. I hope to be able to look back on this year and say that all the effort that I end up putting into The Social Times was a smart move but even still I am a little skeptical.
I guess you are always skeptical of the future as an entrepreneur but you believe with all your soul in what you are working toward. The past year has been incredible for me with the launch of AllFacebook.com and the success that it has brought. I have now spoken at conferences on panels with people that I learned about only a year ago and aspired to become. I’ve received some press coverage and I’ve built a business that has sustained a decent lifestyle for at least a few months. I thank all of my readers for helping me out in some way or another. Whether or not you know it, you have helped me to become who I am today.
Next year will be incredible. I will either continue to build something incredible or fail completely for the first time in my life. I have never gone for broke with a business and this is the first time that I have had the confidence to do so. I promise to my readers that next year I will be documenting much more of this process on this blog. I have neglected it over the past couple months as things became overwhelming but suddenly I have found some relief in my new hire. Hopefully we can generate sustainable revenue for the early life of the business. I don’t think I have ever been so afraid yet so hopeful at the same time.
It is truly a complicated emotion. Whatever the case, I will be more transparent and communicate what is taking place with my business on this blog over the next year. That is one of my new years resolutions. I wish all of you success and great health over the coming year. I have a feeling that 2008 will be incredible.
