It was a crazy week. This post and this site is a product of this week. My original website and email server crashed. My web manager was MIA and I was truly overwhelmed. After chasing my tail for a few days and muddling through my situation, I picked myself up by the bootstraps and got busy. I realized I did not like feeling so powerless over this situation. So now I have a new website, yes it is a work in progress, but it is mine. I am not a web developer but I can learn.
Lessons learned . . .
- Take a little time to process, do not make drastic decisions while emotionally involved.
- Seek guidance and advice from trusted advisers.
- Once a decision is made, pull the trigger, do not belabor the decision and second guess each detail.
So what did I do. After I decided to start over and get a new hosting server, I made the purchase. My usual trusted advisers where unavailable so I had to kind of go blind. But here is the best part, my trusted advisers later checked in with me and gave me some good advice. It was clear I did not make the best choice, so I was able to go back and make a few changes, some tweaks to my decision. The ultimate outcome is I have a website that is up and email that is flowing uninterrupted.
Feeling grateful and blessed.
