Personal, Starting up

Updates

This space is not dead again. Just had a short staycation over at bf’s place for birthday, the photos will come in another post! Anyway, life’s been pretty much the same, which is bad for a young start-up because stagnancy in infancy usually is a crisis.

I’m pretty much in a dilemma. On one hand, I like what I do at Adonai Training as a consultant/marketing executive and the flexible working hours it offers. On the other, I have a clock to beat if I want to start my own business when I’m young. Time is money. Youth is gold.

Throw in an attractive bait and I get into a deeper hole of dilemma. I’ve been approached by a young and rich start-up to join its team. Based on a chat with their vice president, the job scope that they are offering will be pretty much the same as what I’m doing now, and I can already find some ideas that can be done with their social media tools. Their founder is pretty impressive too – self made millionaire and owner of 5 businesses all in the span of 13 years. This bait is different cos I usually reject an offer within a day and I don’t look back, but this has been hanging in my head for 2 days already. :/

It’s kind of hard to decide my way when I’m walking the road less traveled. No career courses in any schools prepare their students for this so I guess this helps me to wise up because I have so much more to lose; every step can be a new path or a trap well hidden. Ultimately, we’ll all made different and want to be treated uniquely, so why should we stay the same?


Decisions, deciding, decide. 

Anyway, the crisis management ebook that I was writing required an overhaul. I initially wrote it with breath – many case studies with each representing one main learning point. But after consideration we decided to go for depth – less case studies but more in-depth analysis of each case. So well, I’m going to re-purpose my old content as a series of blog posts right here!

PS: Too many choices, possibilities, indecision is killing me. And if you lend a helping hand, then I will follow willingly.
