You’ll need to immediately replace imagery of Rocky running through the streets of Philadelphia and punching meat in a freezer with far more romantic imagery of someone with poor posture installing Linux distributions on virtual machines and closely following online training programs to learn how to run Drupal. Rocky needed to beat Mr. T; I need to be able to handle being the system administrator for technologies that aren’t overly familiar to me.
Yes, I’m sticking with the imagery no matter how much of a geek it makes me. We’ll inherit the earth, you know. Or, at least be able to help fix your computer when we’re around so be nice. I mean it.
I’ve put on the hoodie and gym pants, no wait, I’ve put on the pajama bottoms and faded t-shirt because being the sysadmin is most likely in my future. No, not for Start-Up Toy Co, but for a yet to be named or really talked about other venture that is about 70% toward completion. I’ll share when the time is right, but sufficient to say that it’s a very good opportunity to buy my own business and to work with one of my closest friends.
What happens with Startup-Co? As of now, it’s slated as part of my daily work activities as is developing the Fireball Foundation into something more than a clever website. There’s a huge overlap for Fireball and New Biz on the Horizon Co and about 33% overlap for Start-up Co. Good grief, I hope one of these hit so I can start using real names.
Well, it’s time to go to the gym and exercise. No really, it’s not an analogy – I’m really going to the gym. But then, I come back to really do my workout.
