Remember the year? Remember the decade?
I do, quite well.
The year was 2002. In addition to those events of significance there was also a much smaller decision, made in the living room of a small house in Holland, MI.
With a 3 and 5 year old scurrying about the house playing, with the security of a corporate job disintegrating at our feet, and with a insecure job market offering little in the way of options, together with my wife I decided to start a small business named Boyink Interactive. I chose the name because I had no idea if I would be doing software/database or web development and I had already purchased the boyink.com domain name in earlier years (totally on a whim).
Every year around this time I write these posts, always feeling incredibly blessed and humbled that yet again, for another year, God’s chosen to allow us to continue to make a go of it. Not only have I been able to provide for my family, I’ve gotten to do work I choose and love for people that are a pleasure to work with. I get to follow whims that become additional businesses like Train-ee, and I get to choose to enter a period of full-time family travel while continuing to work.
It pleases me to no end to celebrate 10 years - a decade - in business as Boyink Interactive.
Even if it is considered the “Tin Anniversary”..
