Roll, again.

(2 minute read.)

Not so much 'come back', as 'go forward'.

It's now mid-January 2022 and, returning after an extended absence, I'm re-energising and becoming active again.

I've not done much in recent years, having lacked good health and the desire to 'do business'.

In 2018 I became genuinely unwell… cancer and a subsequent significant and ongoing adverse reaction to meds/treatment (greatly reducing my physical energy and mental health) from which I'm still recovering.

But even before that, things had become less than ideal during the previous 3-5 years… a commercially-flat and frustrating period.

So, 'proper illness' has to a degree been beneficial… providing a work-free period in which to rest and re-evaluate.

Unable to operate and develop them appropriately, I paused/closed and withdrew all active projects.

In returning to 'doing business'…

I can't pretend to be enthusiastic about much of what's considered 'business as usual' nowadays; amid rampant mediocrity, there's too much which is simply vapid or is predatory and blatantly exploitational.

Also, there's many seem to have read and believed the kind of stuff in those 'become an instant expert' e-books which have surfaced in recent years.

And I've spent too much time with those who don't know what they don't know, and want praise rather than informed and objective guidance which'll help them improve.

This is largely why I'm no longer keen to provide advice & support to others… it's rare that I can be appropriately interested in what others are doing.

More importantly though, I prefer to use my talent and experience and time differently and more wisely…

Rather than continuing to provide paid by-the-hour/task/solution advice and support to others, I'll instead focus on my venture projects in which I can 'literally get paid while I sleep' and additionally develop value to be released on subsequent sale of the enterprise.

I have a few appropriate projects, not all of which'll get done (but I prefer to have options, for stuff which can be developed if desire and resources permit), which should enable me to do exactly that.

So yeah, on I go… restarting at an age by which many others are settled and easing off. Oh well.
