Back to Blogging

After a short break without blogging, mainly due to the academic load at university. I’m back.

This past weeks i have left my job at a good company and decided to look for something that i love to do. It’s sometimes hard to find something that you love to do and that at the same time pays your bills, but it’s possible.

With some freetime now I’ve been thinking about people like Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, Carlos Slim and many other millionaires who decided to do what they loved and got money to pay the bills, not only of them but of a whole bunch of people working directly or indirectly for them.

They didn’t do this alone, but they were keen enough to motivate a group to follow their ideas. If you would like to start doing something you love the best way is finding some people who love the same thing and motivate them to work with you in order to achieve your goal.

Many people don’t get to that point mainly because they never try to find people that share the same passions as them. Now with the internet you can find good people all around the world. So the process should be easier, but it seems the evolution is slow.

Of course you’ll need to get to know this people first, but i can assure that cultivating long term relationships with people you meet al around is an amazing opportunity to find people that can be your partners in the future. It’s a good way to find the next Woz or Paul Allen.

So just go out and search for someone that shares your passion. Then You’ll be ready to kick it!

Today I start my long weekend. After 3 weeks of working at an electricity distribution company tomorrow we have the anniversary party. That doesn’t count as work right? You may wonder how a Social Media person (like I like to label myself) is working for a Electricity Distribution Company. It’s simple it is an internship and here in Peru we don’t get many cool startups or firms to work. So this is the main reason why I’ll like to move to California pretty soon.

The fun thing is that i work at the PR department (though studying Business Administration) and i keep arguing with people on how to speak to costumers and how they are the ones needing all the information, while the people in charge of communications don’t communicate as they should. I guess they can afford the luxury of that since Electricity Distribution is a Natural Monopoly.

Going on with my plans on Sunday I’ll keep doing my work for this amazing project in the UK called 4mations. Special thanks to Mel Kirk for letting me be part of her team. LOVE YA! MEL! YOU ROCK!

Well so this long weekend will be highly productive and maybe I’ll go to a party or two. Also on Saturday we will be doing the Live DROPP TV and the taping of the new and improved Dropp Report (Quest of getting out of Beta). So this is a bit of randomness! Also I’m looking for another Internship in the operations department at any company that has one, specially if it’s a internet or social network. I need to get out of electricity and need more action.

The other great news is that my consulting firm is back in action JGD CONSULTING! and it’s becoming a Marketing, Projects and Social Communications Consulting firm. So this long weekend will be busy…And i thought i would get to sleep.

Please leave your comments, critics, ideas, love, hate or any schwag.

See you son probably uploading the new Dropp Report.
