I’m leaving Batteries.com and Indiana

By StrangeWork.com: The time has finally come for me to move on from Batteries.com. Not only am I leaving Batteries.com, but I am also leaving Indiana and moving to New Jersey in April!

I’ve come to a crossroad in my life where I had to make a decision. Take the safe route and keep working in the corporate world at a cushy job, or take the less safe route and go with my passion of being an entrepreneur and start my own company and try to make it big. I can happily say I’m taking the less safe route and going for it!

I’m going to be working part time at a development firm, called InfoLoop, where my friend currently works. The rest of the time I will be working on building my new company (Web Dev Studios) and pushing my startup sites (SnapFoo.com, iHotties.net, etc)

This is a huge change in my life and an exciting time. As much as I love Indiana I think it’s time for me to go. In New Jersey I will be within driving distance to New York City, Philadelphia, Boston, and Washington DC. All of these locations have HUGE tech scenes and I’m really looking forward to all the conferences/gatherings that I’ll be able to attend.

I’m taking a huge risk by leaving, but in the words of Robert F. Kennedy:

“Only those who dare to fail greatly can ever achieve greatly.”

Wish me luck!
