What's going on with Our Next Thing

The Our Next Thing project has been slow-moving as of late. You know it. We know it.

Yes, we've been busy but we've also realized some of our priorities and the Our Next Thing project doesn't always go into the top priority pile. Generally, that is because it's not making money for us so if a moneymaking endeavor comes our way, we often have to put our personal projects on the back burner. That's okay, as long as we're dedicated to coming back to this project, which is definitely still near and dear to our hearts.

We've done a few more interviews in the Milwaukee area, and are now finishing up on the planning for our winter escape from Wisconsin. We will again, be spending two months of our next winter in Asheville North Carolina. Or more accurately, will be spending a month in Asheville and a month in Black Mountain, North Carolina. the two cities are about 15 minutes apart. So we can bounce back-and-forth between the two. We have some friends and acquaintances in both of those cities and are looking forward to seeing them again. We've spent a couple of pleasant days in Black Mountain, so we know basically what we're getting into, but the prospect of spending a month they are is actually starting to get a little exciting. Whereas Asheville tends to be a progressive, liberally oriented city, Black Mountain is a sort of artist colony and the population as probably about a fifth the size of Asheville.

Will be looking for people to interview in both of those cities so if you know of anybody who would like to go under our camera lens, please send them our way. We're looking for people who have made dramatic career changes in their lives and age is quite unimportant. We'll take anybody from their 20s to their 90s as long as their career paths have been diverse.

We also hope to catch up with some of the people that we interviewed at our last trip and see what they've been up to since that time.

I created this blog posting using my new voice recognition system based on Dragon NaturallySpeaking. I'm enjoying the writing ability of this device, but have not totally integrated into my business life. It may be that I need to just work at this thing until it's second nature.
