I recently had to close down two small "quick-serve restaurants" that I owned on the north side, after spending virtually every waking moment over the course of eight years hyper-focused on them. Fortunately for me, I loved the discipline of developing a business. I'm now in a slightly dazed state of bewilderment, trying to figure out what to do next. Do I get an old fashioned job? Do I start up something new? Aack! The pressure!
I'm also a former house music DJ and enjoy the underground house scene in Chicago and NYC. Maybe I'll get back into that....
If you're into astrology and this means anything to you, I'm told I'm "an evolved Cancer, but Libra rising and a Saggy moon." So I'm all kinds of everything, I guess. I'm not really a huge astrological fanatic, I only include that for your reference, really.
I am Witty, Resourceful, Awkward and Driven, even when medicated. I am NOT psychic.
If you have ANY interest in the same challenges, please step to the front of the line. I would LOVE to spend my life with someone cool who would be interested in the same thing.
I truly learned throughout my experience owning the pizza joints that I can really do ANYTHING. I had to learn how to do everything on my own because I never had money to pay others to do it! Accounting? I can do that. Install lighting electrical? I can do that. Basic Plumbing? No problem. Design a website? Install a sound system? Lay tile? Build a wall? Sure.
It was like the frigging Matrix; I needed to do something, so I read up on it quick and boom, there it is.
HOWEVER... All that said, I learned something more important: I can do anything, but I can't do EVERYTHING. Not on my own. I need to practice delegating more. I need to let others in on the project, and depending on the nature of the relationship (assuming boss vs employee here), then I have to set standards and hold people accountable.
In a relationship though, whole different ballgame. It's still all about communication, but there's a lot more compromise. I'm up for the challenge.
