Earlier this spring my other company had an opportunity to build a pretty big remodel project, and so we did. I knew it was going to be somewhat hectic running two businesses at one time, but I didn’t realize just how crazy it would be. One expression that comes to mind is “burning the candle at both ends”…but this was more like burning multiple candles simultaneously at both ends!
What ended up happening to Black Hills Web Works is that I put it on autopilot for the last three months with little to no blogging and no new projects. We continued to maintain the websites for our current clients, finished up a church website project and did some on-site training with their staff, and helped our current clients with any issues or problems that came up, but for the most part my time and energy were committed to the remodel project for Sundberg Builders.
A nice side-benefit of taking an active break from a project or task is that you can let your mind do some subconscious work on whatever that is, and in this case, it was Black Hills Web Works. So I’ve got some ideas and plans for the company, this website, and future projects that I’m looking forward to working on and implementing. As for my other company, I think it’s time to start winding it down so I can focus on Black Hills Web Works exclusively. Time will tell how that works out in reality.
In the meantime, I thought I’d post some before and after photos from the previously mentioned remodel project. If you’re interested in this type of thing, enjoy!
