Switching jobs after recently starting

I was hoping to get some feedback on this. I started a position a few weeks back with Company A. The main benefit was being able to work from home 3 weeks and travel one week. I've got 2 daughters and a wife at home, so spending more time with them is a high priority to me.Around the same time that my current workplace reached out to me, there was another company, Company B, that I was in contact with. At the time, they didn't have any open positions though and told me to stay in touch. I did…See More

Based on some of the ideas that I've heard before, a potential opportunity crossed paths with me recently, but I wanted to get some feedback from the group.Some background: We recently had our internet service upgraded and when the technician came out, he had to swap our modem for a new one to support the higher speeds. I offered the old modem back to him because it was provided by our internet service provider and the person on the phone that I talked to told me they would swap them and take…See More

Hourly Rate in Question

I was recently asked about my hourly rate. I've been doing some side software development work for colleges and universities through another company. They essentially send me the information and I give them a price back for the project. So far this has worked out well until yesterday. They wanted to start knowing the number of hours I estimated so they could determine if they should put a project manager on the project. So I gave them the total price and the approximate number of hours. They…See More

The Security Gland

Posted on September 7, 2013 at 4:53pm 0 Comments

I think I've finally come to the realization that I don't really want to work for someone else. I've done it now for a while and it's been okay, but ultimately at the end of the day, I want to be in control of my destiny and how much I can make.

However, I'm not sure that my wife agrees with me on this. She hasn't come out and said it, but I get a feeling that insecurity starts creeping in when talk about having our own business or striking it out on our own comes up. I'm not entirely…

Business Liability/Malpractice Insurance

Posted on December 16, 2010 at 7:59am 0 Comments

Our insurance policy is up for renewal Jan. 1. We're kind of up in the air as to whether or not we should renew it. The business is just a side business and we netted about $2500 last year. I believe our insurance policy was about $500 last year. It seems kind of crazy to have an insurance policy that is 20% of our net profits. In our business, we have been doing technology consulting, which includes web sites, computer repair and setup, network setup, and pretty much anything else you can…

Starting a Coffee/Ice Cream shop

Posted on July 25, 2010 at 10:16am 4 Comments

I live in a small town of about 2000 people. I've really wanted to start a coffee or ice cream shop in the town as a place where people can gather and meet. We'd offer free wireless internet. The only problem is that I don't know much about coffee. I'm not a coffee drinker and don't really like what I've had of it. Of course I like ice cream (who doesn't).



I guess I'm just wondering if this is a feasible option. I've talked to someone else in town that has had a similar plan and they… Continue

Company vs Personal E-mail

Posted on June 3, 2010 at 8:41pm 0 Comments

As we were transitioning email accounts from one email server to our new one today, I realized a practice that companies use may be hurting more than helping them. Most companies, big or small, have some sort of policy in place around Internet or email usage, saying that it should be used for work only and not personal. The companies then proceed to block personal email sites, and other sites they may find as "time wasters".


Despite these policies, many people start…

Adam,

I want to model this mastermind group after the one Dan has just started. I want weekly meetings online. And then once a quarter have a meet-up. This is where the mastermind becomes unique. I would like to have a speaker come and speak to the group. What do you think? Do you like this idea? I want to limit the group to 50 people.

Hi Adam,

Welcome to the Unlock Your Passion group!

I'm so glad you've decided to join.

As you've probably noticed already, one of the best ways to get a lot out of the group is to start a discussion or join one. 

I wish you much success in your pursuit to live and work in your passions. 

I look forward to connecting with you further in the group.

All My Best,

Adam Rico

It’s great to have you here at 48Days.net!

This is a great place to get direction on working in your passion.

You might like the group Clearing the Hurdle. I started it for folks who are determined to find the career or build the business of their dreams, but have to get over some personal financial hurdles first. You’ll probably enjoy the conversations we have going on there.

I’m excited that you’re a part of 48Days.net!

All my best,
