A little backstory- I walked away from the corporate world a few months back. I was damn good at what I did for the last twenty five years and enjoyed the people aspect of it, I just absolutely hated 85% of the crap associated with the role and the poor quality of life it led to. Those who know me have commented on the change in attitude (for the better) and the totally different approach to life I have adopted over the last few months. I’ve spent that time trying to find a job that I’m good at and truly enjoy without the constant headaches and politics of corporate middle management.
Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve been approached by a few friends to help them out with band website redesigns and creation and have eagerly agreed to do it because it is something that comes very easily to me and I enjoy doing it. It causes my brain to work at a high level and I love to sit back and admire the finished product when a website is complete. This past week I’ve thought through my ability to go to market with it. I’ve created probably a dozen different websites over the last decade as a hobby. It’s the kind of work I can do anywhere or any time of the day or night. In other words, it’s the perfect gig for me. I’ve talked to Jen about it and reached out to a very trusted advisor to make sure this wasn’t a pipedream. Both gave me the confidence needed to make the following announcement.
In the next week or two, Cozmic Debris Web Services will be live and fully operational. I’ll be providing a variety of web design, troubleshooting and web management services at VERY reasonable prices. My target customer base consists of those trying to make their mark in the indie music world. For over three years, I have struggled to find ways to help the indie artist. I think this could be one of those ways. I believe the combination of my pricing structure and the reputation I’ve been able to build in the independent music industry over the last 3 1/2 years should help to keep me busy. The greatest part of doing this is knowing this is something Jen can be a part of once I get all the kinks worked out (she’s been doing a little website maintenance of her own over the last year).
Stay tuned- Jen and I already have some big plans for 2020, but this may take the year to a whole different level of excellence! It took me almost 60 years, but I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up!
