- Bob Parsons quote – “when you’re ready to quit, you’re closer than you think”
- I’m really in need of help from a project management level just not in the financial position to bring that on in the way that i’d like right now.
- From a business standpoint, I missed all of my goals due to the birth of my daughter on Wednesday.
- This means I didn’t write 500 words
- I didn’t work on new website home page
- Did lose two customers this past week totalling $1.5k/mo in losses. One was a $1.2k himself and the other a $300/mo. The $1.2k customer is in the process of hiring/training a new sales team. He may come back, but I think that customer is probably going to have the reps work on lead generation themselves. Our upcoming tools might be at play there, but who knows.
- 19.8k MRR – We were BRIEFLY over the $20k/mo MRR number until the $300/mo customer canceled.
- Still had a handful of deals from the previous week’s sales calls come through which gave us another solid gain overall from the $18.2k we were at last week.
- Had 6 sales calls total for the week. A few closed and I think another one or two will close soon also.
- I have had some comical communication with Sam Ames, the developer whole stole $1.2k from me. I’m getting my money’s worth in some of his email communication. I plan to write a blog post about the experience on justinmcgill.net. I think it will be a good lesson to share while hopefully warning others about him. He said two things that were hilarious:
- People don’t read blogs anymore
- Podcasts are so 1990’s
- I started using Cyfe.com to pull in key KPI’s. Plugs into Google Analytics, Stripe, social media, etc. I used Zapier to connect Drip. So I have a spare monitor set up to display this information.
- I put Michael in charge of analytics and subscriber count. As long as he’s focused on subscriber counts, the analytics will take care of themselves.
- Overall – the team did a good job keeping things afloat and progressing while I was out.
- Recorded an episode with Brian Casel of Bootstrapped Web which was cool.
- I did let go of one of my VA’s and replaced her.
- She just wasn’t getting things done and I constantly had to be on her about it.
- I already have 4 sales calls booked for next week with a couple more pending. I am probably going to be close to 10, but I’d really rather not because…
- I don’t want to work more than 4 hours in any day next week. This is going to be really tough for me. I look forward to our next episode where we discuss home/work balance.
- Then I want to start these goals from last week:
- Get the two website themes merged together and start working on actual home page of new site.
- Try to stand more while working. I have a standing desk and have not been taking advantage of it lately.
- Sleep when the baby is asleep!
