I’m not sure if I mentioned it here, but I quit my job as Engineering Manager/Site Architect in September. Webshots just wasn’t where I wanted to work anymore.
I received an offer to work with a ground level startup, YouService. It sounded like an exciting opportunity, so I jumped at it. I needed something that I could get behind since I had received a large number of headhunter calls to work with other small companies, but none of them felt right. The only thing I have to say is that Google’s Adsense is not a business plan.
After working with the new company for a month and a half now, I don’t know why I waited so long. Work had become so painful that I dreaded getting up in the morning. It took me awhile to adjust to having fun and feeling ok about it. I felt like something was wrong since I was enjoying each day, so I must not have been doing something right. I have to sit back and realize that we’re getting a lot done and yet I’m enjoying every minute, so it’s ok.
Now I’ve just got to keep pushing this company so that it makes it off the ground. Things are looking pretty good so far, though. I love getting involved with a startup from the beginning. There are so many things that I’m learning about how to start a business.
