Time for some change 🙂 – Was supposed to be a quick 100 words but here are 500+
Sherece and I are going to sell everything we can get an RV and travel!!! I will get to play more poker, she will get to work on her business ideas. Life will be cheaper and more fun.
My business stuff is all remote enabled, but I really hope I can get my head on straight and start making consistent money at poker. I have a bad case of winners tilt right now. I also need to take a break for another reason…
The other reason… FQHC around here suck. So about a year ago I decided I would try it out. The experience was horrible and continues to be. I only gave it a shot because my doctor I had found retired. So what do I get in return?
The promise of low prices with quality care… I said promise. I can guarantee they don’t listen, or my prescriptions are never filled. But worst of all they cost a ridiculous amount of money. Nearly $500 a pop. My doctor (no insurance) was charging $40 + $80 when they had to do blood work. Want to find a good deal call around…
Anyhow because they have not returned calls or faxes for my prescription I have been taking a lower dose of thyroid for a few weeks now and I can tell a difference…
So anyhow I still have to decide what a break means. I think for sure 12hr+ sessions are not going to be something I can do very often if at all. I also think it is very important for me to assess how I am doing before playing. Today and most days this week, I just haven’t been feeling it.
Lucky for me I picked up The Mental Game of Poker and I have a better system than ever to evaluate. I have suspected differences in the past when my thyroid is off, and I have noted a few, but evaluating my thinking and focus is not something I have really felt the need to do in the past.
I have been doing this very good, but high level Bible study on Angels and Demons… It is really a good thing to look deeply into other things. A few other guys and I have started a men’s Bible study and goals group.
I tell you I am really looking forward to this!
I need to throw out there also. Posted an opening on angel.co for a programmer for BPCH. I have been looking around at the possibility of selling the company, and also trying to find people interested in make other deals.
Things look really good, but I keep hearing they could look much better. I just have to decide if I am going to put in the work to get this thing going to where it should be, or I truly want to move on to something else. We are at a do or die situation. (Die being die to me; sold).
Again the nice thing is whatever happens it still fits with our current plans. BPCH can continue and grow etc… and I can be anywhere in the world with an internet connection and cell phone to make it happen.
Also want to mention on the last leg of Kelly B. Todd website. It is coming along nicely, and is a charity that I would recommend for anyone to check out.
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.
Better PC Health or BPCH is a remote Administration service company for computer systems.
I want everyone to know that Better PC Health will be the subject of my new video series Let’s Build a Business! This will be streamed at times and will be posted to YouTube. This series will follow the building of BPCH from concept to design, strategy, and all the way to getting customers.
If you go to the website at the time of writing there is nothing there because of the Let’s Build a Business series. The YouTube channel for BPCH will be all about computer tips, help, and related.

I’ve been writing journals on and off my whole life. I’ve been doing nearly the same online with my blog and this time things are coming along nicely as I’m finding old posts and working on adding new ones.
I hope you find something helpful and please feel free to leave me a comment as I love reading them!
