Reviewing my path.
Looking back at some of the posts marking my development into a famous blogger, retirement lifestyle coach and internet entrepreneur, I found these mile markers.
While I was still working, my work environment changed when my boss died and was replaced by an incompetent and insecure man. No amount of wisdom and experience will protect you from the damage and frustration of being controlled by a self-focused loser. It is very difficult to maintain self-confidence and a healthy attitude in this crippling environment. Fortunately I had access to better leadership and community in my personal business environment. Instead of the cramped vision at my job I was able to plug into the energy and vision of high level leadership.
During this time I was beginning to blog seriously. I had played around with it before but a plan and purpose was beginning to form. It was fuzzy and mysterious but with enough substance to keep me moving. Then I hit a wall. I just couldn’t get my engine running until I discovered that I wasn’t alone. There were other voices telling their story and pointing the way.
I don’t have the answers yet but I am getting some clues.
