This weekend I discovered that my car is leaking a fluid. I'm pretty sure its a CV boot, not the oil or transmission.
This is not the first time that I've had issues with the car, sure I've been driving it for 10yrs, and its a 2006, but it has hardly any miles on it. In fact, it has a couple longer road trips, 3yrs of commuting 20mi and that's almost it. I haven't "commuted" since 2013, so its used to do runs around town, stores, etc.
If it really came down to it, I think we could just dump the car, but we have a couple young kids in the house and they need stuff. Its going to be hard to get groceries or diapers on the bike trailer in the winter. Also I need a car for work, travelling to site, etc. I don't have to do it often, but when I do I can't rely on taxis rental cars, etc.
A car is a necessity, but FUCK!
So, I'm starting to look into a used EV car. I only need something that has 100mi range or so, that would cover 80% of what I need it for. The charger network locally is getting a lot better. That is going to add to the needs of this project. Shortening the timeline a bit.
I don't know what it is going to look like yet, I will have a better idea later this week when I do a finance snapshot b/w the business and personal to see what I have to make this happen.
No more loafing for #noloafing
All of these posts will be tagged with the #noloafingmoney so if you want to see what I'm doing over there, that is the place to do it.
Its time for me to stop loafing and get involved. Plan to see a lot more of me on this platform and the other front ends.
The goal is to build a product or series of products that allows me to scale. The financial goal is to build a business that has a monthly revenue stream of $5k with less than 20hrs worked on average by the end of 2020
If this is your first time here, thanks for stopping by. I wrote my first post on this topic in November 2019. They all have a "special" tag, so you can find them all here: #noloafingmoney. If you want to see where this all started, its with this post, Money and the Gig-Economy.
