I’ve wrapped up my latest contract at Amazon. As much as I like having a job, a career, with a company, heck I usually like going to work. But, sometimes my job offers are far between. I’ve been thinking, recently, about hanging my own shingle(s). I don’t know if my future success and happiness lies with trying to get job after job after job.
I’m working with a couple who’ve developed a (what seems to be) medically and proven cognitive program for youngsters with autism. I’m helping them get their web presence started. They’re fantastic folks, great clients, and (among other activities) I don’t consider myself to be unemployed, really.
I’m the type of person that sometimes wants to recreate the wheel. To figure things out myself, to develop my own process streams. I have an excellent memory, I learn immediately from mistakes. I have the makings of an entrepreneur, some people (much smarter than myself) have told me.
In my past, I seem to have an affinity for online selling. I really like doing my own marketing and sales campaigns. I’ve sold on eBay for years, off and on, I’ve started and managed a few online stores (one was quite successful, one was just so-so). My niche seems to be high end men’s clothing – limited strictly to reselling previously owned clothing. There are multiple selling platforms and multiple sources of inventory available.
I am experimenting with growing a few things that are in demand. Yes, as in food items, in some sort of grow medium, and nothing illegal or weird. Those two items can lead to marketable, salable profit centers.
