Since being let go on Tuesday I’ve been surprisingly busy. I scraped the ceiling in my guest room and removed the ugly popcorn that was linking my house to the 80’s. I’ve worked out and I’ve talked to a myriad of friends and I’ve got some great job opportunities already.
I think that for a while I am going to try to work for myself. I am going to launch www.eddierenz.com with a new look and a list of services that will be marketed to small businesses and small churches in the DFW area. I am going to continue to DJ and I am going to try to do some Social Media consulting work for a large corporation – maybe – hopefully!
So God has really wowed me through all of this. I haven’t had a computer since Tuesday but I’ve already been contacted by individuals for web design projects and DJ gigs. It’s strange since normally I would have sent out a flurry of information, a media blitz if you will, of my resume and my availability. With no computer that hasn’t been an option.
I borrowed a laptop from my parents on Wednesday night and after updating this site and Facebook the computer crashed. I went out and bought a new hard drive for it, but it wouldn’t work. It was so bizarre that I took it as a sign because in all my years of fixing PC’s I have never seen a laptop do what this one was doing. It was like God was telling me, “Be Patient”.
I’m at an internet cafe this morning and I am about to go and buy a computer at Best Buy. I wanted a Mac, but I think I might just buy an inexpensive Dell for now because I own Photoshop CS3 and Dreamweaver for Windows and to purchase them for Mac would be another $1000 dollars.
Please continue to keep me in your prayers. I need guidance and direction and although working for myself seems like it could rock, I sort of already miss my coworkers. I think it would be awesome to work in the computer department at a church, doing web design, graphics, brochures, PowerPoints, etc. But who knows, I might just find that I like working for myself and eventually I can hire myself some employees!
Thanks again for all the love and support. I’ll keep you posted.
