Well, this has been a fairly good summer so far. Besides the fact that it has yet to get warmer than 70 degrees and go for more than 3 days without raining. I finished my Human Resources class that I took in May, and got an A-. I liked taking it as a May class for 3 weeks rather than a regular term class, I learned it better with the accelerated pace.
With my business, it seems like I constantly have 2-3 projects on my plate. I’m currently hiring, and recently met a lady who is going to start working for me, and helping me with web development. I’m excited, as this means that I can focus my time on things that need to get done, besides spending all my time actually making the websites themselves. Now I just need to hire someone to do system administration to help with the long list of projects I have going on with my servers.
Right now, I’m setting a goal for myself. I want my business to acheive $100,000 in the next year. And to start off this goal, I have a short term goal of getting $3000 in sales by the end of June. So I really need to get my butt in gear and start marketing. Thankfully my good friend Mike Frankosky recently finished my new logo for Utaria, and I LOVE IT! I’ve passed the logo on to my good friend Bryce Howitson who is going to do his magic and create a fantastic new web-layout using my new logo for me.
It’s funny how I develop websites for other businesses, and I feel that I do a pretty darn good job at it. Yet I don’t have time to develop my own website! I guess it is a cost-benefit thing, where my time is better spent making sites for clients to bring in money to pay the bills. This is exactly why I need to hire.
This is all for now. I really need to try to blog more, I find that blogging helps me organize my thoughts so I am aware of where I am currently, and I think its cool to read the comments of those who I’ve never met commenting on my life. So, until another day, cheers!
