Ever had one of those moments, where you feel that you need to change. While sometimes this does come into effect if you either have been drinking and have a moment of clarity of some kind. No? Are you sure? Let me tell you about my experience.
I had a moment like that, but not just once. Twice this has happened to me. It happened while I was walking to a bus stop and again a couple of weeks later while drinking. Let’s say that once it popped into my head, I paid my tab and left the bar to look into this.
Mind you lately I have been a bit frustrated with where my online e-commerce stores are going. I have had at least 2 of them for several months, and it does get a bit hard to keep track of them all. Yet I am not about to give up on them just yet. It is something that I have been toying with, but find it hard to give up on them.
While I am not leaving my original idea of traveling to visit as many breweries or vineyards around the world. I mainly had e-commerce stores to help offset my travel costs. I just may keep 2 of them and go from there. I have been trying to do a couple of things. I am learning about how to manage multiple stores, marketing, and social media. While Instagram is slowly going downhill with engagement and the new algorithm.
I have decided to invest more since it tends to give a better rate of return. Mind you I live on a line cook type of pay, but when I invest it does gives me a good return. While the dropshipping stores do make for a better ‘work from anywhere’ mentality. It is not the type of work that I really wanted to do more than this blog.
I have noticed that I have been going out more, but not to places that I wish to learn or visit. I believe that I am getting a bit too comfortable at work. I need to get out and do a few microtrips. This will help me break the cycle of doing the same thing. I have offers now to visit Chile, Mexico and a few local breweries. I am going to start back on my Spanish and beer speak in order to visit. I also have plans on going to Hermosillo, MX to visit a local brewery there that has some ties to Tucson, AZ and some of their beer is here in town.
Microtrip- Where you go for less than 7 days to experience a specific place with some downtime to enjoy the city or town your are in.The Merry Bacchus
This planning of taking a mini trip is going to be very helpful to my overall wellbeing. That, and I have been wanting to go somewhere for at least a few days. I already have looked at a few places to go. I wanted to do a nice weekend type of turnaround. Hence, the term microtrip.
