In April of 2006 my wife and I were blessed with the birth of our son, Nathan.  One year later we decided to turn a hobby that I loved doing into a business so that I could work from home and help my wife with our son.  And thus, Anything on a Clock was born.

The first year I was quite inspired and passionate about Anything on a Clock.  It is easy to be inspired and passionate about your business when your business is inspired by someone that you love as much as we love our son.  Of course, as all new businesses do, we struggled.  As the years went on, Nathan became more and more active.  This took more and more of my time away from my business.  Although the business was still growing, slowly, the focus was beginning to go.

2011 was the most challenging year for Anything on a Clock.  A lot of our attention turned towards Social Media.  We know that Social Media is the way to go but starting a new marketing strategy takes time.  As the months rolled on, we got more and more frustrated with the lack of sales.  As the frustration grew, the motivation faded.

This September, Nathan started kindergarten so now I have more time freed up to work on Anything on a Clock.

    I have a little unsolicited advice. This is coming from a blogger with 150,000 reader per month (I live in Vancouver). I love this blog idea but your photos at the start of each interview are badly taken. I would go OUT OF MY WAY to make sure either you take 20 so you get a really good one, or use the subjects own images off their own site. People like pretty (not in the interior design sense but in general) and a bad picture at the start of each post looks amateurish. Hope you take this for what it is, a contribution! Good luck with your blog, it’s a great idea! Maria

    • Thank you Maria,

      I am very new at blogging and I didn’t really think too much about the photo. I have been taking it with my iPhone or getting a passer by to take it for me. I think I will be taking my real camera to my meetings and perhaps try to get a good photo. Since all of the people who I talk to are on Facebook, maybe I will use one of their profile photos.
