Momentous occassions

So many of you may or may not know, I am an entrepeneur and always looking for new business ideas. I started an event planning company in San Diego last year and it has been a slow start but a good one. I have learned so much about myself over this past year. I have grown personally and professionally and learned that sometimes life can be challenging, fun, sad and sometimes not fair...

Recently, TruBlue decided to begin a concierge a few months. Recently we decided to begin a communications company for event planning companies. This week proved to be very happy and stressful as well. We made initial contact with our communications supplier and they are very excited about our new venture and after the conference call, i was so elated. One of my business associates was so persistent and wouldn't take no for an answer. I wasn't really sure that the business was going to take shape for 6 months. After the conference call, i could actually see the light at the end of the tunnel and start to see the new business take shape in my mind. I can actually visualize the clients and signing contracts

My life has been viewed through charcoal covered glasses and have view things negatively. I have never seen the successes in my life, until now. I have changed my glasses and can see things now that have never been present before. I have been focusing on positivity and getting this going for myself and for future generations in the Bordes Family. I can start to see that all of the hard crap that happens in our lives, happens so we can appreciate the good times. If everything were easy, it may not be worth doing. The hard times build our character.

This new communications venture, no matter how scary is going to be a fun journey. The people I have associated myself with are extremely positive and I try to avoid the naysayers. Anything is possible if you believe. I am looking forward to a healthy and prosperous 08.

I want to thank my family and friends, especially Noah, Rich, Bobbi, Andy, my mom and my cousin jake and many more for believing in me. I love you all and truly respect your friendship and love....

Feels like a throat punch to my heart

So, I thought today was going to be just another Sunday of lounging around and netflixing.  I don't think I have ever been so wrong in my life.  To start with, Facebook reminded me of my memories.  I happened to click on a friends link and decided to follow another link to my very first girlfriends sisters page.  Its random how I got there, but I blame facebook.

To my shock, I saw that her sister had passed on the 22nd of November.  I was shocked because I knew that she wasn't that old.  I reached out to an old mutual acquaintance and found out it was pretty sudden and unexpected.  That had me in some kinda mood.  Because of that, I began to text and email friends and check in and make sure then were okay.

I got a text message from a close colleague I used to work with at a previous job.

Beck: "whats shakin CB"
Me: "Not much just wanted to say hello.  Had a wake up call today.  Found out first girlfriends sister just passed away.  So sad...she was young"

Screw back up plans

Yes I said it.  Yes I have had quite a few unsuccessful ventures and I have recently started reading blogs that suggest backup plans.  I don't agree and I will tell you why.

When you have a back up plan you have an "oh shit that didn't work and I have to do something about it". Its like whatever it is going on in your life is going to fail or stop being at some point. Newsflash: You are correct!  NOTHING lasts forever. Your job, your marriage, your income stream, your family and most certainly not your startup or your job.  For those of you wishing to go back to the old days, its not going to happen.  The age of chivalry is dying and the startup that you create will be dead within 10-15 years.  We don't live in our parents or grandparents economy. Hell the way we communicate is changing. See example below and try and decipher what I am saying to you


Did you figure it out yet.  If so, please pat yourself …

Just a friendly update on me :-)

Hey everyone

Just wanted to give an update. You may remember that I said I was going to be coming back to California, well it is official.  I am heading down May 1. I will most likely take the train and stop in Napa to visit my cousin Stephen Bordes at his winery for a day or two.  From there, I will catch a train to San diego.

I am currently looking for work and open to any positions that may be available, I just ask that you don't hold it against me because I have a masters degree.  I have seen many companies shy away from hiring me because I have a Masters Degree.  I am honestly looking to get off my feet and find a base of operation. My home is California and I know that now.  I am native and the air, soil and water are in my bones.

I am looking to establish which means I will need to find a place to live (that I pay for monthly), maybe even get a car (down the road) for now I know that I will have to use the bus and I am okay with that. I am nervous as hell about this move …
