I’m kicking off the new year with some sad news: I’m shutting down At Origin.
Fortunately, I have a good reason for the blog’s suspension.
My last (cocoa) client made an offer for a full-time position, which I accepted with alacrity. After years of analyzing agricultural commodities, I finally get to sink my teeth into actual commodity trading.
While I’m looking forward to growing a small business, it will be no easy task.
The challenges are not for the faint of heart: a lack of finance, a tough regulatory environment, and an international cocoa price in free-fall.
Luckily, I enjoy a challenge as it is an extraordinary growth opportunity.
But, with such a level of responsibility, I will struggle to find the time to keep up the blog.
I’d prefer to avoid the inevitable blog death that comes with sporadic posting every two to three months and suspend At Origin though I might relaunch it at a later point.
Thanks for everyone who followed, interacted, and commented.
