*disclaimer* I will probably not add as many cool pictures in the next few blogs, but I promise a positive outcome at the end of my time spent with Mr. Dan Miller.

Ok NOW it’s day 1. I actually finished the book last night, but in between nodding off and going cross-eyed, I don’t think I fully comprehended the last 2 chapters. So I took a quick minute to finish those off earlier today. I also started the workbook, and it’s basically rehashing a lot of stuff I learned in High School and College. It’s funny how quickly I have forgotten a lot of the basic things, but not so funny how quickly I’ve forgotten how to “dream.” I’ve also decided that a transition is in DIRE need, the enviroment is just not healthy for my soul.

I’ve decided to brainstorm on a few past ideas, and possibly develop them into something else. Meanwhile, I have a job opportunity that may present itself in the next couple of weeks that I’ll keep everybody updated on. I wish not to give any details, however if this does go through it will be a HUGE answer to prayers. I just need to focus on the main part, which is trying to get the “interview” with said opportunity. That reminds me I have to make a call tomorrow before 11am.

Anyways, here are a couple of ideas I’ve tried to develop in the last 10 years, but have never really got off the ground, or even off the drawing board due to lack of business acumen and know-how on my part.

  • High School athletic marketing for college recruiters (Highlight DVD’s with Bio’s/stats/interview/etc…)
  • Creative Consulting
  • Catering
  • Stock Photography E-commerce

Now, of course I would still keep New Tour Era, but I would probably create a larger company and have NTE under it’s umbrella. I have such a faithful client base of about 20 realtors that order from me every month, I absolutely love that type of professional relationship, there’s no way I could break that trust.

One quote from today’s session in the workbook that I really liked:

“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which. He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he is always doing both.” – James Michener


OH MY GOODNESS, I found Biz’s distant relative, BUBU!!! Here he is with my favorite player of my favorite NFL team (oh, and btw that’s a peace sign, not the universal 1 finger “hello.”) :

Where can Biz find one of those Burger King 49ers Jersey’s?!?!
