At some point I'll post more about my experiences there, but what I'll say now is I really enjoyed working Tereza and her team, and didn't expect a 6-week engagement to stretch to five months.
Which leads me to July.
July's wide open, so I'm scheduling it for, well, me time. And I really mean scheduling it, because if I don't, it will be over and I'll be on to the next thing wondering what I did with the time.
Here's the plan:
- work on the book 2 hours/day.
- surf at least 3 times a week. Waves, not web.
- teach my new dog Bear some tricks, like don't poop on the rug. (He's a rescue, has issues, but I'm getting him some self-help books and enrolling him in doggy yoga).
- Send the resume around to a dozen tech startup headhunters for exec roles (CEO preferably)
- crack open Jawaya on Node.js again. I was very close to launching a closed beta when I took on the gig, and true to form I set it aside to focus on the gig.
- Record a few new songs. Just laid down the first tracks last night.
- Road trip... see some old friends up and down the east coast.
- Ignore the West Coast. I think.
- lose 15 lbs. I'm down about 31 from a 15 months ago, and I'm turning up the exercise. It's been fun.
- Establish two new community gardens.
- Possibly raise money for a startup incubator/accelerator I'm thinking about starting. But I'll likely put that off until August.
I'm not going to look terribly hard for the next gig--I'd rather create it myself. But if you know of any funded startups that need adult supervision, leadership, a turnaround, or all three, send them my way. Especially if they're close to a low-wave surfing beach.
Alright Bear, time for that walk :)
