I hope they didnt, I just put it down to a false positive. Weird feeling leaving the hospital, it was like nothing really matter and many things you aim for are pointless.

In a way Im glad it happened.

Best thing in 07? I quit my day job of 8 years to do this for a living. I get to sleep in, spend more time with my kids, and generally enjoy life more. Much of that is thanks to AdSense (and good decisions on my part), but I have some other ad programs that work good.

I just seemed to learn, in the coming new year, if I could finish whatever I left half-way in 2007 and the years before, that would make a huge difference.

Have you had projects/plans you thought you would never drop when you initially planned them being so excited, just to find out you haven't pursued much of it months down the road?

Have I ever? How many times? I spent 50k+ on a project recently only to have my friend and business mentor suggest 'that's a good hobby for you to do, in between projects that might actually make you money'. Eeesh.

2007 I got on board with two important business perspectives. First is I don't do anything unless I know it's going to make me money. The second, I got involved in direct sales aspect of my niche. Turns out I'm pretty good at it..one guy said in my first two months I was probably top 5% of salespeople. Which is good. But it also really rounds out my business. There's not too many folks who can take a site right from design to SEO to actually following up on leads and selling them. (the niche I'm in develops leads online, then they need to get called to be sold). So 2007 is the year I went from computer/SEO person to I think being a much more rounded business person.

baby girl (first child). She puts everything into proper perspective and revitalizes my desire to improve our businesses.

I was hired to carry out an exploration and mapping survey of a deep mine in Jamaica, which was abandoned in 1863, for big bucks (there's gold in them thar hills). I'm actually a caver/speleologist, but whatever, it's the exact same approach, and even involves the same survey programs/techniques. Much better pay, though ;-)
