In May of 2018 I relocated from Seattle, Washington to my uncle’s mini-horse farm in the Michigan Upper Peninsula. I lived and worked on the farm for that summer. It was tough work that included moving a lot of hay. It was just what I needed.
I finished the farmhand work, and took a weekend job as a Master Control Operator for one of the local TV stations. I also moved to downtown Negaunee, Michigan where I later connected with the owner of a thriving bakery and cafe (www.facebook.com/MidtownBakeryCafe/). When I was offered a full-time job on her staff, I jumped at the opportunity.
I’m also happy for my efforts with Thales Consulting (www.thales-consulting.com/) where I have crafted a lightweight set of technical and administrative services, including 24X7 monitoring of their servers. I put my eyes on their systems every morning, and maintain a complete document library of all our work together. You can find the tools used here: https://carzwell.xyz/2019/03/07/tools-of-my-trade/.
In September, I am relocating back to Seattle. I will make it my home, and seek work. I am going to refine my business service offerings to target potential areas of unmet need. I think I want to work with small and medium businesses, but if the right match in a big shop comes along, I will of course consider it.
I look forward to the opportunities and new experiences. 🙂
