A lot of you might not want to hear this, but I’ve finally given up. No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to extract enough money from the web, and I find it draining to constantly have to think of things to work on. It has taken almost a year, but I finally want someone else to tell me what to work on for a change. I’m tired of having to work on things all day that are interesting but not profitable. I want to have a slow day, and drink coffee while avoiding the boss. I want to take long lunches and shake hands with people who can advance my career.
Call me a sell out if you want, but I accepted an offer for a mid-level management job at a local institutional investment company.
No more hobo life. No more rebellion. No more avoiding people in nice suits just because they seem as if they’re dead from the neck up. I’m older and I know the rules of the game. You dress nice, you play nice, you get ahead. You work hard, you get more hard work. That’s just the way it is. If kissing ass and wearing a tie is going to get me a better title and a little more money, that’s what’s going to happen.
Unfortunately, this means that this is pretty much the end of the road for this blog. It was a difficult decision, but I have to call it quits because this blogging thing has the potential to come back to bite me in the ass when I least expect it.
Thanks for reading along for the last six years and I wish you all the best of luck.
