Happy New Year! The New Year is Here and I’m Already Exhausted…

Happy New Year!  The celebration rang out through our neighborhood in Peoria, AZ and I woke to the sound of fireworks at midnight when my jet-lagged brain thought "here we go again."  2018 had come and I was not even close to being ready for it.  2017 was an amazing year of firsts.  First time on a cruise.  First time traveling to Europe.  First time my business became a multi-million dollar venture.  First time publishing a book & first attempts at becoming a serial entrepreneur all climaxed into a glorious crash of epic proportions.


I was exhausted.

I know you are not supposed to ever let them see you sweat and all that, but I was wrecked and tired and the pace I hit was impossible to sustain.  So... I took a month off from Divergent Entrepreneur.  I know...  You all missed me.  🙂  But, you will be happy to note that despite my vacation from blogging, posting videos & content creation I never stopped being a Divergent Entrepreneur.  The beginning of this year has taken off like a rocket.  This time last year, my business had only 4 full-time employees and now we are at 10 and about to hire our 11th person.  Revenue is up, my task list is deep and the list of un-returned emails is ever growing.

I know its sounding like a complaining session, but it's not.  This is a new year and with it things have changed and changed for the better.  My little startup has gone corporate.  I now have department heads, weekly meetings & quarterly goals for everyone to hit.  It's different and different is good.

Well, so what now?

I'm glad you asked.  Now that I have a ship that no longer resembles the dingy from Tommy Boy, but rather the titanic, I now get to have a little more time to devote to you my DE Nation.  This year is going to be amazing.  We have some new content in the form of interviews with Divergent Entrepreneurs just like you as well as a few new books and training webinars to take your game to the next level.

SO, without further ado... 2018 DE Nation is now in session!
