Yes, I have been very busy lately and I owe you many weeks of blog entries. I am sorry; I know this is the only thing that keeps you going in your have-nothing-to-do day. Well, as you can see, the sarcasm is in full force and flowing! Oh, what a last couple of months.
So… let’s start off by saying that business is much better, much busier and much more profitable. It is getting to that point where I might just start making money! Debts are paid off for the business, expenses are low and commissions and fees are stable. After 16 months I am seeing that light at the end of the tunnel and it is getting closer – in a good way of course.
It is getting to that point where you have to choose VERY carefully how to proceed. How to make sure you do not bite off more than you can chew. How to make sure your good opportunities keep growing and the not-so-good ones make them grow or take another direction. It has come to the point where we can say, “Hey, I am actually in good shape.”
But then, reality sets in and I wake up – is this all a dream or a nightmare?(cruel by the way). Nope, it is for real – no kidding. This, as you might guess, feels very freaking good. I have my wife and partner to thank, my children to ask for forgiveness and my business partners for believing in us for so long. We have not made it yet – that is a long time away – but I can tell you now, we are here to stay. Not going anywhere.
Like it or not, we are not a casualty, and the time to gloat is over. Now we focus on 2017; I have our budgets ready. Just need to be a little more clear on our tactics and strategies. We are clearly motivated and on our way and as I told you many months ago, the life of an entrepreneur is always like a roller coaster. Let’s just hope that we are not about to free-fall…
Stay Calm and, yes my friends, keep very humble.
