As of Dec. 31st, EKOS Communications as an incorporated entity ceased to exist and returned to operating as a sole proprietorship. The change was motivated by a need to reduce overhead costs, since there has been little to no activity to drum up business and revenue since I took on the full-time gig with Ocean Networks Canada in the fall of 2009.
Quite frankly, I simply don't have the energy or drive when I get home at the end of the day nor on weekends to engage in more work. Don't get me wrong. I love my job. So much so that I pour 150 - 200% of myself into it. But I'm often exhausted after work and need time in which to replenish my reserves. The thought of having to sit down after supper to run a business as well makes me want to upchuck.
Perhaps, in time, this feeling of revulsion will pass. I don't know. So for now, I'm letting EKOS sleep.
