It's been six years. This is the longest I've ever held a job... or even a career.

Starting to feel burned out.
I've managed to switch it up every 10-12 years to something new, while not completely abandoning the skills gained in the previous career. Lot of jobs/careers people sort of plateau by or before that, imo.

Plan for the next big gig - it'll warm your soul until it's time to roll.

Had my ergo eval today.

When I worked @ jsc I had a chair that looked like it was made in 1973 but they wouldnt just give me a new one
I found out that to get a new chair all I had to do was schedule a ergonomic evaluation through HR
Did that
Lady came out , saw my pos chair , took some measurements on how I was sitting and holy shit the literal next day I had a brand new still in the plastic chair delivered to my desk
It was called "the dolphin" on the paperwork
pure insanity but working the system sometimes actually works

I've got a decent chair, I just have shit posture.

The only redeeming thing about my office is that the desk will go up and down, so I can stand and fart sometimes instead of sitting and farting all the time.

Been there, some days I feel it more than others. I'm starting a 3rd business (business VoIP phone service) so hopefully that takes off. I think it should be an easier sell than managed IT services. Hopefully I can sell some big accounts. A friend of mine is sending me a bunch of hot referrals. I don't even have a logo, website, or the phone plans ironed out yet. I did setup the S-Corp, got EIN, got SIP trunk vendor, D&B number (need it for FCC forms that I have to file), mailbox, and a few other things. Still have like 25 other To-Do items to get the business going. I forgot how long it takes to get this shit done.

I noticed this week that my employee is no longer wearing a wedding ring. I guess he split with his now former wife.
I lost mine swimming in the Atlantic about 9 years ago. The wedding ring, not the wife. The wife is almost back from swimming class. For the kids, not her.
Man this is a really confusing issue! What's the subject?

I set up a website for a client of mine who does what you do and started offering voip too.

They are not doing enough with it to make it successful though.
