An accident. Rehab. A death in the family. Rattlesnake bite. Tornado. Flooding. Raising your teenage granddaughter. Sounds like the plot to a bad disaster movie, doesn't it? Well, unfortunately, it's been all too real.
The past year has been difficult for me and my family. I will spare you all of the depressing details. Let's just say it was enough to make me withdraw from all except the most essential interactions. I desparately needed time to heal - physically and emotionally.
But heal I have, thanks to God and the support of my family and many friends. And I'm back now, and ready to get back to work.
Now I wasn't completely absent. Still needed to make a living after all. So I have kept in touch with my network marketing teams, worked with some of my coaching clients. But I didn't reach out to anyone new or share with anyone I was not well acquainted with.
This down time was actually very beneficial. Of course, I would rather have not had to go through some of these experiences. But they did cause me to step back and take a good hard look at where I was heading. And the conclusion I came to was - I was going the wrong way. It took me a while to figure it out, but suddenly there it was.
With that in mind, I am making some changes. This blog will remain. I still think it serves an important purpose. Don't Trip Over Your Brain is expanding. Since I have started two other network marketing businesses in addition to FHTM, it will focus more on network marketing techniques anyone can use and less on FHTM specifics.
Bob has recovered from his run-in with the rattlesnake. But between that and the fact that he is 15 years old (that's like 105 in dog years!), he is no longer as spunky as he used to be. And so he will be retiring from traveling. He will still be blogging. But we are revamping his entire site. The traveling will be taken on by Austin and Bob is going to devote his energies to a new adopt-a-pet segment. The Adventures of Traveling Bob is now going to be a new expanded site. Look for our launch in mid to late August 2011.
As for me, I've also been working on something new. It's not completed yet, but I'm very excited about it already. So much so, that I don't want to wait until it is finished to share. Boomer Biz Coach is becoming more focused, starting with the launch of our new site: Boomer Business Ideas (http://www.boomer-business-ideas.com/.)
Lots more coming. I'll keep you posted. It feels good to be back in the world again. I missed all of you. Now let's get to work!
