An integral part of my contract agreement with MCP involved a non-compete clause that prevented me from publishing computer books for five years.
The years 1997 to 2001 became my time to investigate new and different avenues. The biggest change? My first child, who emerged into the clear light of day in October 1996.
Having Carly completely changed my perspective about what was important.
The birth of my child utterly turned my head. I had to wonder what had taken me so long to finally make myself available to this wonderful experience. My interests started evolving towards the stock market, mostly because my accountant had convinced me I needed to think about more investing, but secondly because the stock market was becoming the initiation ground for all my friends and it seemed strange for me to not dive in.
This subject of that investigation I will save for a future installment.
