Day 124: Putting A Pause On Forbes

I've talked about this so much about how long I'll continue to write for Forbes that I must be boring everything, especially myself, to death.


Come July, I won't be taking on any new Forbes stories. At all.


I've hit my ceiling at Forbes. I don't have anything more to accomplish. It's not just that I'm bored of writing on startup for the publication.


It's that it takes away precious time and energy on developing Founder to Founder. I can't keep doing both.


F2F is stalling (partly) because I have to spend time writing articles on Forbes for entrepreneurs that I promised.


The truth is that I need to step back and put a pause on Forbes. Honestly, what that will probably mean is that going forward in July, I'm only writing once per month. I have to minimize the time I spend writing for Forbes if F2F is going to succeed.


I want F2F to succeed more than I want to be known writing for Forbes. Right now, for those who I've promised stories, I will keep my word and get them done.


But no more new stories. I'm tired. Beyond F2F, I never want to spend my weekend writing for Forbes again.
