As we mentioned before, we closed 3 deals by press-time last week. Well – my mistake, I should have waited, but Thursday is blog deadline and I had been late the last couple of weeks. In reality we closed 5 deals last week. And we closed another 3 deals this week related to those.
My partners have been going crazy this week and are overwhelmed. We will knock out one of those projects by Friday and focus on the ones for long-term. I saw my partners frustrated, like they wanted to kill me, but did not have the heart to tell me. I also saw them anxious because a drive-by deal got in the way, and they can’t attack their main deals. I also saw them frustrated, as we are waiting for some information to continue finishing up deals from last week.
All in all, it has been a seriously busy week and we expect to bring in handsome rewards in the next 60 days. All we have to do is make sure we don’t go broke by then and the worst will have passed. As you know a new business, requires not only time and money to be invested, but lots if tender-loving-care and a s***load of patience.
We are so busy we realized we have to hire 2 more people within the next 2-3 weeks and we have not received a single dollar from our clients, but if we want to make our deals work, we have to invest heavily and that is where I have to pony up, whether I want to or not – more money from my already-hurting pockets. As I see it, if it all goes well, and all of our plans come together as they should, we will have a very good 2nd quarter and hopefully by then we can start collecting some sort of salary.
Here is looking at all the risk takers and letting you know, keep it up, don’t give up and have trust in your abilities, and surround yourself with loyal, honest and hardworking people, who you will do right and share your rewards. You can’t do it alone, don’t be greedy
Keep calm and stay humble.
