I survived my disciplinary today.

HR were present and after being asked questions about how and why the incident happened etc, as well as my thoughts and feelings about it including how it affects/has affected my conduct going forward, the meeting was adjourned for 40 minutes whilst they conferred and made a decision... Which was, a final warning

So that's that. I can now put this ugly event behind me.

After a crappy few months with the work related incident, then losing a cousin suddenly, and a few other set-backs, I finally built my online store and launched it as fully live this week.

Something nicely surprising, is that I've had 10 people sign up to my mailing list, both pre and post launch, and I haven't spent a dime on marketing..

By checking my google analytics, it appears I've had hits from the USA, the UK and Ireland. The Ireland and UK hits aren't surprising since I've had people I know take a look at my site to give me feedback (all love it), but the USA ones, well they do surprise me, because they've found me organically.

So now it's a matter of getting my head down and doing some effective marketing, and try to get my first sales.

Attempt number 1 - send a discount voucher to my 10 subscribers, offering 20% off their entire first purchase.

Cool thing is happening.

Obviously, although my business is technically live, I'm still pretty much in the pre-trading phase, trying to figure out where best to spend my money on advertising, rather than just throwing money aimlessly at different things. However..

My mate is doing some freelance work for Invest NI - one of the local business-backing and support organisations. He sent me forms last night to fill out, and in a nutshell, he's going to get me 30 hours of fully funded, one-to-one business mentoring.

This is great timing and I'm gunna make full use of this shit.

I woke up on Saturday to my first sale on my website.

It turned out to be fraudulent, so I made the decision to cancel the order.

So at least I've experienced the feeling of making a sale.

Not much is going to happen for the new few weeks as it's the Chinese new year and they all go on the piss apparently.

Attended a careers fair today at The Europa Hotel Belfast. It's a gig they host every year.

As it's next door to our office I normally go in and have a zip around on my lunch hour grabbing some info here and there, but I booked today off as I wanted to have serious chats with other companies without being in a rush, and hand out my CV.

There's 2 or 3 winners, and I came home this evening to find one of the top 2 had already emailed me to ask for an electronic copy of the CV and a time to have a 20 minute phone interview.

The reason for this is I'm bored with my current job. And also, all my colleagues and friends have been and are continuing to drop like flies, so I feel the time could be right for me to jump ship too.

The jobs I'm interested in have a significant salary increase and significantly larger commission potential than I'm currently on.

One is Yell.. Another is a tech company selling digital marketing innovation products.. And another I'm mildly interested in is a specialist in building gym equipment, with the ecommerce and sales my specific area of interest.

I realize I've been allowing my focus to sway. By switching jobs I'd be creating a huge obstacle in having to learn a new role and all that shit.

I need to refocus, and stick to the original plan of building a side business enough that I can resign by the end of the year.

Recieved my first ever passport today.

Now I can finally start taking my ass off to places outside Ireland and the UK.
