It was pretty funny when I decided to relocate to a small town; I didn’t think about the fact that everybody in the town knows one another.
- I am from a large city and I am quite used to that hectic kind of life; Honestly though, I just wanted to get away from that lifestyle and appreciate the nice air quality out in the country for a change.
I started my own successful online company that took off. I am certainly working all of the time, however I work from home. When I first moved into this small town, neighbors were friendly, but they seemed suspicious of me. I would have packages delivered to my house all of the time, sometimes several times a day, and that’s normal for me. When I would have neighbors visit, they would ask me why I have packages delivered all of the time. I thought it was funny that they thought I was some kind of drug supplier or something. After all, I had our home built from scratch and it is an unquestionably large home. I also had the house hooked up with radiant heated floors throughout, in addition to an energy efficient cooling system. The icing on the cake with our heating and cooling system is the smart thermostat. Nobody around this small town had anything fancy like my HVAC system and they didn’t understand how I had so much money. I had to explain that I operated my own supply business online and that’s how I made the big money. When people got to know me a little better, they realized that I was a nice guy and the word spread around the town about my online company. I even had people ask if I was hiring..
