This is my first blog in about 2 months… and that’s because things have been pretty crazy, so I thought I’d drop a quick update to explain what’s going on.
On February 17th, as many of you will know, I set off to travel the world with my girlfriend. We visited 7 countries: Costa Rica, Peru, Brazil, Argentina, New Zealand, Australia and Thailand. I won’t go into too much detail about the trip, because I’ll save it for another blog, but pretty much these past 5 months have been the best of my life.
On Sunday 8th July I returned home to England. Things have been weird and ridiculously different to the lifestyle I’d gotten so used to. Im currently adjusting back to normal life which has left me feeling a bit depressed and almost frustrated, but these feelings will pass soon (I hope.)
So what next? Despite slagging off the education system consistently on my Instagram page I have actually been offered a place at university. However, I decided to push my place back a year, so I’d be starting my course in September of 2019. This leaves me with a year to do what I please.
I’m planning on opening 2 businesses in the space of this year. A Shopify store (which is in the process of launching now) and at some point later in the year, a social media marketing agency. I’ll only do Shopify for a short while to fund my next business idea, because realistically I don’t want to be selling items manufactured in China on Facebook for the rest of my life. Essentially, social media marketing is what I want to do with my life, and I’ve opened this Shopify store to initally fund it.
If this year goes well, and I see any sort of success after 12 months of hard work and dedication, then perhaps the entrepreneur life is for me, and I’ll do this forever (which is the aim, because this would allow a lifetime of travelling…) However, if this year does not go according to plan, and perhaps this isn’t working out, I can go to university next September and get myself a degree. I’ve managed to secure myself a back-up plan which makes everything seem a little less scary.
But yeah, that’s the plan. Apologies for being less active on here and Instagram lately, I’ve just had quite a lot going on. I’ll be back to weekly blogs and more frequent uploads soon.
