In the last seven weeks, I have been working for a another start up. Its going well, and promises to continue. I took some downtime in October in November, during some treasured quiet time from a year of constant and, at times heavy work, and meditated for ten hours per week. Every week. Like religion. I sat here and said, ‘God, give me someone I can help.’ I did not say give me more money. I did not say give me an easy commute (I don’t like driving).
The phone rang, and I knew. Went to see L and we spoke for nearly three hours. We agreed to give it ninety days. That I could help her a lot was beyond question. But not everyone is meant to work together. I knew building materials. Sales. Finance. Social media and communications. Familiar with fire resistant and flame retardant materials (high temperature fabric company). I knew Asia (Chinese Importer). I knew warehouses and inventory. I was familiar with ocean freight and shipping. On and on. And that’s just some of it. Stop here so as not to swell this list unduly!
This is my third startup. Only this time, the company has customers, working capital, product, website, and resolution or determination and morals. That’s four big areas. Not saying how large each is, buy they all there. Some companies or founders lack some of these parts, so its a good start!
