My first week at work

  • Share on Tumblr

So it was my first week at work… after a very short long-weekend for July 4th, considering my last day in the corporate world at Citigroup was June 30th. It was a very weird feeling since it was the first time in my life that I supposedly had a job but no physical office to report to. I truly can’t explain the feeling. Liberation? Freedom? Confusion? Anxiety? Probably all of the above and then some. You really only know what I’m talking about if you’ve tried to start a business in your apartment/house from scratch. It’s not easy, and you probably didn’t know where to begin. I began with reaching out to various technology vendors to price out options of outsourcing our tech development. Given we’re a technology firm, it seemed like the right place to start.I have to believe that this will be a trying time for any new entrepreneur. Anybody in my position will probably not know exactly what he should be doing (it could manifest itself as a deer-in-the-headlights phenomenon where you’ve got so much to do and don’t know where to start) Bottom Line: I keep telling myself to keep my eye on the long-term strategy and take baby steps towards that goal. I will try to view each activity I perform (each phone call, email, proposal) as a baby-step towards accomplishing our end vision. JT
