A New Starter, a Life Defining Moment, and Overwhelm!
Hi everyone, I’m a new starter, not even a full member (although I have a feeling I will be!). I’m in a position that I know has impacted many people in the last 12 months! My main career working as a software engineer on Aircraft control systems is on hold due to Covid! I was a freelancer working for Rolls-Royce and other companies. But at the moment there are no contracts! So I’m keen to create a business that is more in tune with my passions!
My other passion is the Internet, the technology, security, coding, servers, linux, WordPress, I love it all. I have a website designedforpixels.com which I want to be a focus for good quality, more personal WordPress services like support, care plans, hosting, courses!
I also have a plugin called ‘WP Cloud Server’ approved by WordPress that allows developers and agencies to sell hosting using services like DigitalOcean, Cloudways, RunCloud, and more with add-on modules coming to add services! It integrates with WooCommerce or Easy Digital Downloads! It has it’s own website! But take-up is very small.
The problem is that it feels too much! I’m overwhelmed! I think I need a more focussed idea of where I’m heading. I think I’m too stuck in the ways I’ve always done things. I keep getting new ideas that distract me! But I want to have a business that provides a service! I think I have the skills, but not the business sense!
I would love some feedback. Peoples thoughts?
