Be ready for changes, any time ...
My job interview on Thursday did go really well and I will hear back by end of January. In parallel I am trying to understand the secrets of being self employed, and what the government and insurance requirements and directions are. I will participate in a one day seminar about this topic in early February, to have a good starting point and because it is a requirement and prerequisite from the government labor office.
I definitely will be working out a business plan, to see what is required and as a good learning experience after finishing the economics basic training last week.
Yesterday I had the opportunity to test drive an electrical car, as we are just thinking about a new solution for the day to day mobility in my family. Great experience, great technology and able to cover a distance of 400 km under perfect conditions. Definitely an alternative for all activities in a midrange distance around our house. More details, when we are closer to a final decision, so far it is just one very interesting idea of several options.
With respect to "Be ready for changes, any time ..." I found two great articles supporting this statement.
