Carry on Wayward Son

July 15, 2010

Wow. It seems like forever and a day since I’ve updated my blog. The times have been very trying for me. I’ve been busting my butt doing renovation work on my first house flip. Work is almost done. The house was posted to the Austin MLS on Wednesday. In case any of you would like to see, the MLS # is 8028907. I also have it listed on my company site: .

I have sacrificed much to start this new endeavour. Racing is on hold, I don’t eat as well as I used to, my body is torn and tattered from endless hours of physical labor, I don’t get to spend as much time with the two ladies of my life as i would like to, I don’t get out much, I’m racking up debt to pay for the repairs, and I’d dare say I’ve lost a bit of sanity.

Just today I lost $500 in earnest money from a contract gone bad. I left out one small important piece of the puzzle and paid the price. You better believe I won’t be making that mistake again… I don’t like to think of it as a mistake though, more like education. The school of hard knocks, if you will.

There are days when I seriously consider going back to work as an architect. Steady income and a work routine is comforting. Indicators point to work picking back up in this field. It’s not that I don’t enjoy architecture, it’s just that I know bigger and better things await. Wouldn’t it be more fulfulling to do what you love because you loved it, not because you needed it to pay the bills? That’s where I wanna be. Develop a business that works for me, and then do whatever I want in my free time. I will stay the course, I will fight the good fight, and I will Carry on Wayward.
