Well, as many of you here know, a few years ago I set into motion a new 2 year plan... a plan with a specific goal to put me in a position where I could really truely be free to choose what I wanted to do with my business.... with no prevailing obligations coaxing me in any direction. This way I could choose to make no change... choose to grow huge... re-adjust... re-locate... phase myself out of the field... sell out... or just walk away into the sunset. Well, that plan has come to bear fruit for me. However, looking back now and looking forward into the future, I don't really think I made the choice, but instead in away I feel this chose me... this whole season has been quite the ride for me... a really good year despite all... and so much has happened over the past months that it's all became a blur to me in how exactly I arrived here. In any event, I have sold out my entire business... EVERYTHING excluding the company name, one fully equipped rig, and a hand full of accounts (and NO non-compete clause). As expected there were some that were not thrilled about renewing a contract only to have it be sold (rather than having me)... and there were also a few I chose not to include due to location or scope of work not meshing well with the new operation/crew, which only benefits the new owner. Not enough left to be anywhere near what I would call 'making a living' and not enough for the possibility of a total full-time rebuild by spring. So right now I am going through the motions of my last month. I collect my last checks from these contracts this month, and I sincerely hope I am able to totally fulfill/complete the obligations associated... hopefully by Christmas... or at least by 12/31. Of course I am considering sub-contracting what little I have left and walking off in the sunset. Past that, at this point I dont know what Im going to do with myself beyond that. But I have a little more time left yet to work, think and decide. So I guess I will be an unofficially retired LCO and will be for hire in the very near future or planning new ventures. For me, that is a fact that is still slowly soaking in. I cant even lie either its a scary feeling one that Im starting to loose sleep over now. I've told a few people already, and some have said the sense a little melancholy. Posting this up here is kind of helping me "own the reality" that this is really happening. I know there will be a million questions, and I know I'll struggle to keep up. So I'll ask a question first........ What do you guys hope to see me doing in the future?
