Hello! My name is Daniel Bowling. This post is to discuss the “why” behind my “what”. There are a lot of reasons that I want to start this blog. I could say that I plan on blogging and becoming a digital nomad while simultaneously striking it rich with a flood of new readers. However, that statement wouldn’t be true.
My “why” I am a tortured individual with many ups and downs. Details are lost on me and I only think big picture. My personal life suffers due to my plans to change the world. What is the disease that I suffer from? After 28 long years, I was finally self diagnosed a Terminal Entrepreneur.
The only successful treatment that is known is success itself. This blog and website will act as my home base and be a place where I can discuss my entrepreneurial journey and occasionally say something funny or of value.
One thing I can promise is that if you follow along then you will be inspired to know that you can also go after your dreams. I am a technologically challenged middle class worker, raised on a farm and have been a tradesman all of my life. I believe that the only boundaries that we face are ones that we set for ourselves.
Most of my days are spent working with furniture and automotive upholstery, while dreaming up ways to change the world and help those around me. I am not getting any younger so if I don’t start seeing some of these ideas through then… well… I’ll wake up one day and realize that maybe I am just full of shit.
My “what” My next step is to launch a platform to support tradesmen/self employed by giving them everything needed to start, grow, and manage their business.
Don’t be surprised if I talk a lot about money making opportunities through alternative career paths, products, or services. I would love to share my ability to always be ok. The key is in recognizing opportunity and being confident enough to step up to do a good job and then get paid.
I don’t believe in fearing layoffs or being totally dependent on any one thing. I learned on the farm that you never put all of your eggs in one basket. That’s not really true, but I thought it would be funny.
My Starbucks Mocha is empty and I have some upholstery work to go do, so I want to leave you with a question. Are you where you want to be? Let’s work together to find YOUR “why” behind your “what”.
