So far, it has been a fun run, and I have learned a lot since I set out on this journey as the Enterprising Wolf. I’m so glad for the experience, and I’m excited for the next chapter to get going.
With that being said, it’s time for the pack to change direction. Fear not! This is a good thing. No, a GREAT thing! One of the core tenets I strive to live by (as you may have noticed by now) is “Just Do Something .” This is precisely what I did when I started Enterprising Wolf last year. I took a chance on myself and my future and dove in headfirst, even though I was entirely out of my element.
What a great experience that has been! I’ve found that I am at my best, and learn the most, when I step out of my comfort zone. I strongly recommend it to everyone (Maybe not to the same extreme I did, but try something new).
The Journey So Far
When I started Enterprising Wolf, I had three goals in mind:
- Start a blog to help inform people about ways they can take charge of their financial destiny
- Day trade cryptocurrency
- Create a successful online course around the blog
I went into this knowing that I had a lot to learn and was resting my entire future on this plan. I also knew that this was far from the perfect plan and that it could fail. To quote the amazing Adam Savage, “Failure is always an option.”
So I threw myself headfirst into this new, uncharted world. I learned a LOT, and I had fun researching articles and connecting with other bloggers. Learning about SEO and the various products on the market to help writing and blogging was amazing. I’m so glad I did it.
After the shiny new wore off, though, I struggled with content. I thought at first it was because I was encountering my first professional writer’s block. It persisted for over a week, and then two. I sat down to get to the bottom of it.
I spent quite a bit of time figuring out what stopped the creative juices, and I realized that I had fallen out of love with what I was doing. I enjoyed writing and blogging, but I realized that the niche I had decided on for the blog did not excite me anymore.
The Soul Search
It bothered me that I had this concept that I was passionate about, that incorporated many things that I love doing, but that when I put it all together, it didn’t stoke the flames of that passion.
I took some time then to try and figure out precisely what my internal struggle was. How could I pivot and take advantage of this newfound insight?
One of the big things that I found a passion for was cryptocurrency mining. It was always a concept I was aware of but had never really researched or thought much about. While writing this blog, I learned a lot about it and even put together a few of my own. I enjoyed the process and realized that it was a great way to invest extra capital as a long-term investment.
Another passion I rediscovered was 3d printing. I had purchased a couple of 3d printers in the past but hadn’t done much with them lately. I had initially bought them to help enhance my Dungeons and Dragons campaign and make useful things around the house. For a while, my partner and I have been playing with the idea of selling 3d-printed miniatures for tabletop gaming.
The New Direction
After much discussion and research, we have settled on a new path forward: Starting a service 3d printing.
The plan is threefold:
- Pivot to providing 3d printing services
- Target the blog at giving information about 3d printing and ways to use it to make money
- Follow my passion by starting a new, branded company providing 3d printed tabletop gaming services and objects
