Are you sick of the rat race?

Change can be good. Take it from me: a NYC-pseudo-executive-turned-struggling-Aspen-entrepreneur.

Tired of the Rat Race?Tired of the Rat Race?Trust me, I understand the frustrations. A life lived on the rat-race wheel, chasing dollars to maintain a lifestyle that no longer serves your emotional well-being, is no fun.

As the owner of Sharing Profiles (HireMeAspen is our flagship website), I had reached my corporate limit at the end of 2007. Yet, I continued to barely hold on to my Dow Jones job until early 2010 when it became increasingly evident that I was doing a disservice to both my company and to myself.

Customer Training?

ASPEN, CO - I went to Kinkos today. Oops, I mean “FedEx Kinkos.” I had to fax something, and I can never figure out my fax machine at home. So, off to FedEx I went.

The 24 Hour Cycle: "Doom and Gloom" to "Hip Hip Hooray"

ASPEN, CO - Ahhh...the thrill of entrepreneurism. It's just like a roller coaster ride. It can be so fun, so scary and sometimes it just makes you sick to your stomach.

I have to keep reminding myself that these extreme emotional cycles are all part of the game. A game I chose to play.

RERO or REDRUM?

Aspen, CO Now that I'm familiar with the lingo, I'm all for RERO.

RERO stands for "Release Early, Release Often". But this whole RERO idea is starting to make me crazy with anticipation. Mad with anxiety. Wild with desire...for perfection.

RERO is starting to remind me of REDRUM because it's starting to feel a bit like MURDER to me.

My Friends Give Me A Headache!

It's not what you think.

I love my friends. I actually have the best friends in the world. They are my biggest supporters and such a joy to be around. They are smart. They are kind. They are funny. They are thoughtful and considerate.

The problem isn't their personalites. The problem is that they challenge me.

Too Busy To Slow Down? Doubt it.

Aspen, CO I’ve been taking it really easy since all my hoopin’ and hollerin’ Friday night at the Michael Franti concert. This is definitely a good thing. I’ve been cranking out some work, and admittedly, I’ve been recuperating from the over-indulgence.
