I’ve been getting that question a fair amount lately so I decided to write a post and record a video to explain. I recorded and edited the video last week but have been too much of a perfectionist about preparing my website to post it. One thing I’ve learned over the years is, “The perfect is the enemy of the good”. I think Voltaire originally said it (according to Wikipedia) but I’ve definitely heard it more often from guests on the Tim Ferriss podcast. In other words, in many, if not most, cases, it’s better to launch a project at 95% done than to spend hours, days, or years on that often insignificant 5%.
The video below gives you a quick tour of the coworking that I’ve been spending most of my time at while here in Bogotá. In it, I mention that some people have been asking what I’m doing out here in terms of work and I realized afterwards that I kind of glossed over the specifics of that so I’ll cover it here instead.
Most of my working time (35-40 hours/week) is dedicated to helping grow and manage my family’s business, Fresco Mexican Grill. I handle most of the marketing, advertising, social media, etc. along with spearheading (resume word ftw) new projects like setting up UberEATS and revamping our menu.
Aside from that, I’m designing and building websites which you can check out here.
Aside from that, I’m trying to document my travel and entrepreneurial journey (as Gary Vee would advise) so that when I’m ready to make the switch from focusing on generating location-and-time-independent income for myself to helping others achieve their travel and entrepreneurial goals, I’ll have established a decent reputation as someone who can help in both of those areas.
Aside from that, and last, but certainly not least, I’m brainstorming and preparing to launch a new online business. I’ll get more into that once I’ve decided on a concept and am ready to move forward.
And, of course, I am getting out, exploring the city, and meeting people, but that’s mostly on the weekends. Monday-Saturday afternoon is primarily for work.
Without further ado, here’s a quick look at the coworking I spend most of my time at and, as always, if you have any questions or thoughts, please leave a comment so we can discuss.
