Hi, and thanks for stopping by. I created this site to document my progress in starting my own business. My goal is to be making more money with my business than I do at my day job. Hopefully within one year.
A little about me:
I’m a late-20′s guy living not far from Toronto, Canada. I’m a software developer, and I work for a large financial company. I used to work for a smaller software firm, but we were recently bought out by the big corporate overlords and I must say, I hate it. This place used to be a fun place to work. There were only about 25 employees, everyone knew each other and it was a pretty good work environment. Now that we’re part of a big faceless corporation, all that has gone to shit. People are being let go every few months, demands are high while additional help is low. Everyone that used to be happy and fun is now overworked and bitter.
I don’t want to work my ass off for 10 or 12 hours a day so I can eventually become a manager just to work my ass off for 14-16 hours per day. Fuck that. I’m still relatively young and I don’t want to waste these good years working all the time. My ultimate goal is to make more money working fewer hours by running my own business.
