About the author.

Welcome to Cubicle Hell

multiple streams of income for the internet age.

I am sure that my story is not that different from a lot of other people out there. I am a regular Joe working a "9 to 5" job who realizes that there has to be more to life then just the "9 to 5". The thought that there might be something better is what motivates me to seek out different ways to earn an income. Being a computer programmer by trade, it is only natural that I would seek out my fortune online.

I am also dyslexic, which boils down to the fact that I learn differently from the norm. While Dyslexia has been labeled a disability, I have chosen not to think of it as such. To me I just learn differently. Sometime faster, sometime slower, but since we all learn at different rate I do not see this as a disadvantage. One of the first questions I get asked about being dyslexic is if I see things backwards. To which I always respond, "No I do not see things backwards, and even if I did, how would I know since I would have always seen things backwards?" Something to think about.

Oh, and I have a bit of that "vision thing". More to come later....

A year has passed since I started this blog, and I am quickly losing the desire to do something constructive with my life. I keep thinking to myself that I only have 18 more years till I can retire. Which is three years earlier then I had originally though, due to the fact that I was able to buy 3 years of optional service, but even with purchasing the additional years of service, It is still 18 more years. It has been just over a year and I am no closer to escaping from my cubicle then I was when I started, and worse yet, I am becoming complacent. At least that is how I feel.

I currently run a couple e-commerce, directories and forum websites. While the e-commerce sites and directories are running in the black, the forums are a long way off. Of course I knew that going in. I figured it would take at least a year or two to build them up to where I could monetize them. I look at them as my pet projects, but they are taking way too much time for pet projects and I am starting to wonder why I currently run more then one.
