There are essentially two reasons that I have for leaving the web design world. The first is because I can’t compete with the dishonest developers and SEO companies who will promise big dreams and low prices, but who refuse to guarantee anything. If you didn’t see my recent post on that topic, you can (and should) read it here. I won’t stoop to their unethical standards, and I can’t compete with the people who will. The second reason is because, quite frankly, I’m bored. I have been looking for some new challenges that would really put my brain and my energies to better use, and I am delighted to announce that I have found a few such challenges and have embarked upon them with some serious vigor. With all these new ventures underway, I don’t have the time or the energies I once had for web design.
On June 1, 2012, I mailed a letter to each of my current clients, announcing my decision to leave the web design industry, and advising them as to their options moving forward. I love my clients, and I’m thankful to each of them for their faith and trust in me. I didn’t want to leave them in the lurch, but I need to move my own business forward. So I’ll be working with them over the coming months to help them find a solution that will work for them and their companies.
Over the next six months, we (my family and I) will be launching five new business ventures, and each of them is uniquely exciting to me. So stay tuned. As each new venture gets launched, you’ll read all about it here on my blog.
