Working out of my home, in two online businesses, I spend so much of my time alone with just my two dogs for company. I have to remind myself to create connectivity with other people, and sometimes plowing myself out from under feet(s) of snow doesn’t make it very appealing, but I still make the effort to create connectivity.

Life is too short to live in constant fear, so if you are going to have a successful online business, working out of your home, you might want to move to a place where the pace of life is slower, and you feel more safe. Just a thought for Sunday…yes…that day when “the locals” take slow Sunday drives around in old pick-up trucks, SUV’s, minivans, or 4 wheel drives, and people still care about other people.
