Deciding What to Do… Opportunity

Deciding What to Do… Opportunity

Do you have issues with this? It’s crazy to think that I am talking about a situation where too much opportunity is causing stagnation…

Opportunity is Everywhere

I’m not bragging when I say this, but opportunity is everywhere. I think most people become immune to seeing it around them. Then there is another group completely that has the issue I have, I’m good at seeing the opportunity but not so good at picking which one to go with.

Every Opportunity Seems Damned Promising

Currently, everything I’m looking at seems awesome. Now I must admit from the time I started this post till now some of these opportunities feel more right than others, but the same problem persists because the ones that “feel right” are the hardest long shots of all of them.

Could I be too optimistic? I mean I certainly think it’s possible.

Breakdown of Current Opportunities

Hektech and Better PC Health – these seem somewhat obvious, but I have made some key changes in the last month to Hektech, and I have planned for months to do the Let’s Build a Business for Better PC Health. Growth is slow and in the future sometime I will explain some major problems I have. If you don’t know what Hektech and Better PC Health click the links of each to find out more

YouTube – This is really a small part of a bigger whole at this point, however, it could be a great opportunity. Right now I have my personal channel, Hektech, and BPCH along with another random channel that I have not done anything with but have plans to make some fun top 10 type videos on. YouTube does allow for people to make better than an average living but most of the people who are doing this have been on there for years and make high-quality videos.

Blogging – I have met a few people in the recent months that make more than you or I could possibly imagine from blogging… We are talking about over $100k monthly. I don’t think I write anything that could make that kind of money, but I could see myself doing that for sure.

Sherece’s Stores – Last on this list is Sherece’s stuff, Sherece.com and Baking Is My Yoga (Facebook and Website). We are looking at doing a Kickstarter for the latter and we already have Sherece.com running. I want to give her enough attention so that she can be successful as possible.

This leaves out the other people I am working with… It leaves out CL Harmon and The Mannford Reporter, it leaves out NJ and our planned PTA site, and at least 3 more people I can think of without trying!!!

How I Look at Each Opportunity

Well without trying to sound like some kind of nut (I likely do) I look at them damned optimistically. Hektech or Better PC Health could be extremely successful beyond the limits of “owning a freelance job”… wildly I am telling you. They are both businesses that have completely automatable systems. They could be staffed by people with minimal skill and they both would provide huge value for their customers.

YouTube, if you didn’t know it, creates millionaires. No Joke. Finding whatever it takes to make some videos that get to 1 million views monthly. I think I would only need 1 or 2 videos to do that monthly to live very well… I have heard many people get side gigs and other work from their YouTube videos, I do hope for that.

Blogging is one of those things I have always said I wanted to do, but just never really did the “right” way. People want to see consistent material of a certain quality.

Last on this list is my lovely wife’s stuff. She really has some stuff that looks like it has huge potential.

But I still Feel Stuck…

When it comes to BPCH and Hektech; I just can’t seem to figure out how to get it rolling like it should. I think that is the main reason I am doing the Let’s Build a Business on YouTube. Which brings me to my next point YouTube I see as a very long shot and not something I am banking on at all. It is kind of like blogging, however, maybe I can get it right this time around. I don’t expect to make any direct money from this. Much like YouTube, I could see how it could generate income in other ways. With Sherece’s stores I feel like I can help a lot, but don’t know all that I need to know. I for sure don’t feel I can give her the time and attention she needs or deserves.

With all this opportunity, in a way I feel stuck on two sides; which do I pick and how do I do it right? What I end up doing is just everything, which actually seems to help, but it is hard to think this is the optimal way of doing things.

Recent Storm Caught Live – 7-14-2016 Oklahoma

Crazy Storm 7-14-2016 Oklahoma

This is a quick post just sharing a video I caught recently while driving to an IT job. This is the RAW footage, I will make some edits and post another shorter video later. If you use this video I just ask that you link back to my page and give me credit.

Enjoy!

Long Time Dream Started: Machine DB

Machine DB

An Old Site With a Specific Purpose

Years ago (more than 9) I bought a domain called CNCDatabase with the thought that CNC programmers and operators should not have to buy software that hardly works to make conversion of G-code or other “CNC” code from one machine to another. The typical shop could be full of 10 machines and each one of them could speak its own language. I hated the fact that for me to write my own tools I would have to learn the particulars of each machine.

Instead I imagined a Wiki Site that would act as a cross reference.

I Got Started On That a Few Times BUT…

MediaWiki was hard and life was getting in the way. Between health issues and just trying to pay bills I was getting nowhere fast. Eventually I scrapped the idea and moved on. BUT something kept bugging me. Ever time I did anything with tools, machines, nuts, bolts, car parts, lawn mowers, etc… I would always need more information than I could find. So somewhere along the lines, with a little more knowledge about what is possible, I purchased MachineDB.com (approx 4-5 years ago).

Nearly Impossible: Made Me Start

So I sat on this domain for some time, but about a month ago I ran into a situation where I needed to find information about the mower, mower engine, and carburetor for the lawn mower I had just purchased.

Nearly impossible! I don’t know who puts the online catalogs together, but they are stupid! They are so stupid in fact that it pushed me into starting MachineDB.com

Now I Need Help

I will reserve pleading for help at a later date when I have gotten a few things figured out, but if you know MediaWiki or you love data entry or data organization. Then you would be a good fit, and I need your help now!

Keep checking back for more details as I get going on this thing!

If you are interested in helping just leave a comment here or check the page out yourself. Also if you think CNCDataBase could be useful let me know!
