PS:151 – Back to School (Sort of!)

So I’ve gone back to school by taking an online course in basically marketing, SEO, community building, and possibly the gateway to a revenue stream that a few folks have told me I’d be good at which is: Teaching.

Apparently the world is all about digital learning, I mean I’m taking it! So if I’m cool enough why not everyone else?

If some of the numbers out there are real, then who knows, an extra $1000 or so may be in my monthly budget in the next 6 months.

The one thing I love about this teacher is she is very much a “Be Patient” pusher. See I’ve always known the web to be a slow rolling thing. Sure you hear about companies that are “overnight” success, but really are they? Even some names that come to mind they are in year 2 and unprofitable but very popular.

I want to grow a brand, TFH is a big thought to that same end, but even then it stretches out to too FlockHosting’s blog which is my only other blog – I’d love to make it into an option for some e-learning at a fair cost, really market my knowledge.

Like my last post, change is needed. If folks aren’t just lying to me and I’m kind of smart, then would folks pay a little something to learn what I know if it’s so valuable? I mean less and less are wanting to pay for it in the form of a paycheck, but hey maybe if I teach folks, I can get a little something back. Time will tell!

TFH

TFH. That’s the new site. No link. No major details. Just I’ve decided on a project. I’ve talked to a few people about it with mixed feedback, but I think I’ll give it a whirl.

What will it be? Not 100% sure. Part YouTube, Part Blog, Part Social Media Explosion! (Yes I said explosion.)

I have wanted to do a project like this for some time. I like the idea, I like the name, I like it a lot. As I build things out I’ll give some sneak peeks of the site, maybe too let friends in, to give feedback.

Been busy lately! Doing a lot of prep for this new site as I want it to be a go-getter out the door, even going to start building articles. I want to give this a honest and full resources try as a alternative source of income! (Some folks are making $8k->$30k doing this stuff!)
Leading into this next week I hope to have so many projects off the table, so much I fired a customer today. Well rather put my foot down and said “Here are my terms to keep working” a few others I am going to weed out. As an old boss went over once with folks “Angel Customers vs Demon Customers”. While these few I’m weeding out aren’t demonic they are huge time issues.
So a lot of things moving forward, projects with more hours, building out two servers tonight! Lilly Grace is having better nights! (Actually GIGGLED! in her sleep! Teething break!) I must say a nicer thing to be hearing as I work 🙂

Keep me in your prayers, a lot happening! This old body is trying to keep up!

Oh and one last thing… Who’s 1, and got a 2nd $10 Jamba Juice gift card from daddy’s IT Job? This cutie:
