Over the holiday break (for some), I realized that maintaining this website has approached a full-time job for quite sometime now. Without the full-time income, of course.
Not quite sure if that is good or bad, I went searching for some online advice, no doubt from some "expert" who is less than half my age.
Alas, I came upon the words of wisdom I sought. And while sipping a chilled glass of Vernaccia di San Gimignano, 2009, from Tuscany, Italy, I learned from the 20+ or 30+ something (what difference does it make at this point?) that indeed, you can make a good living from just the contents on your website. And surprise, surprise, the majority of these cyber consultants are in the 40+ and 50+ category.
Most websites, like the ones I make for others, are about convincing visitors to buy a product or a service that is not actually on the website. Starbucks, for example, runs a successfull website. But only because their website can convince you to go to their local high-rent neighborhood café to buy a Mocha Latté that costs the same price as buying 25-50 pounds of Idaho russet potatoes.
So, for 2017, on this website, stay tuned for a variety of offers available right here. For example, a number of webinars are in the final stages of completion and should be up and running later in January. To do that, I needed to plug into a number of hip new services. I'm sure you're familiar with them. Brilliant state-of-the-art apps to help you reach the world. But good luck reaching them if you have a question. "Contact us" means you can't contact us.
For those of us who stress over never having a break, try reaching a company that doesn't stress over taking a break. There's something about the old school and the right stuff that I find hard to beat.
