My First Day as an Entrepreneur

Good morning everyone! Today is is an exciting day for me. It’s my first day on my new job of working 100% for myself. I can already see that there is a big difference in working for a boss and being the boss.

Another thing that strikes me about my first day on the job is how different certain things are from my previous job.  I’m getting the feeling that maybe I have been missing out on some benefits. Am I totally off base or could this be true?

Let’s get one thing straight. I’m in charge.

New Office Staff

I love the people I worked with at my previous job, but not nearly as much as my better half/bookkeeper.

This is pretty much where world domination will occur.

New Server

Intel Processor

  • Intel 3210 Processor – Quad Core
  • 4GB Ram
  • 2 x 500GB HDD SATA
  • Raid Card (Raid 1)
  • CentOS 5.x 64bit
  • 2000GB Bandwidth
  • 5 IPs
  • Fully Managed

Stare at those stats for a second… Yeah. It’s all good. I stumbled onto a dedicated server about a month ago and will be writing more about this subject later. Not having a good dedicated box had been holding back my business back more than I had realized.

Nuff said.
