As I sit here working and popping in on PF from time to time, I find myself busting at the seams and unable to keep this to myself any longer. According to those who would know [and have the contacts], after twelve long, often gut wrenching, once or twice terrifying, always sleep deprived, often lonely years of working in my field, it seems that I have officially reached a new plateau - the top of the food chain! My latest project seems to have established me as a top level industrial systems integrator. Going into this project I knew that it would be a real stretch, but it never occurred to me that other people were watching in this way. As of today I have the last and most difficult of five networks online. So for one, for the first time in two months I may dare to breathe a little, and, due to yet a second conversation to this effect today, this also seems to be a key moment in my career. So, please forgive my bragging but it feels like a party is going on in my head!!! Hopefully this means that eventually I can aim for something closer to a normal life again. Since I started my business over seven years ago, eighty hour weeks have been the norm. For example, I have had two days off in the last two months and have worked 14 to 16 hours a day...and loving it!.
