These are notes I took. I have left them mostly as is, not correcting grammar or spelling, because I think that partially reflects my mood at the time.

Maybe I’ll Start an App:

I’ve been noodling an app for some time. Most everyone I talk to say they’d pay for it. I have a very reasonable quote to build it, but to make it work would require a huge investment of my time (and money, eventually, for marketing).

I really need to research how hard / easy it is to roll out an app, and make some decisions about how I want to spend my time. I admit, I am starting to get more itchy to make money…..

Looking back, I’d add this on reflection on that day:

I still like this app idea, and I have another one too. But, I realized the first app requires a huge base to work, and I wasn’t sure I wanted to build that base of people just yet. Besides, I came up with this idea, and I like this idea too……but, that app won’t leave my brain. Maybe once I get Laid Off Better Off really humming….
