@ 30 yrs old, there is more to life than blogging

My birthday was Feb. 24th and I turned the big 3 Ohhhhhhh…

Funny how my goal was to be a millionaire at this point and I’m not even fucking close.  I’m on the right path, I’m positive about that however it’s just taking so fucking long.  I’m still broke as shit and still trying to get this company to take off.  Our marketing is still a nightmare.  Every campaign we try just fucking fails and I don’t understand what the problem is.  There is such a huge market for this service and we can’t seem to be getting people out there to see that.

One thing I’m beginning to notice is that more and more companies are doing this and I’m worried about competition.  We need to establish ourselves as heavy hitters before shit gets out of hand.  That’s not going to happen closing a deal or two a month, so we need to figure this shit out fucking fast.  I need, at a bare minimum, 100 properties on the books AND paying before the end of the year – no questions asked.

One thing that really pissed me off is that my business partner just decided to take a week long vacation this week and it’s the worst time imaginable.  For him to just leave when we are struggling with this shit really pisses me off.  We need to get this turned around and I’m beginning to think if I personally don’t turn it around, it’s not going to happen at all.

I’ve done a few small test mailing campaigns just to see the type of response we get.  It’s something completely different and I hope it generates some calls.  If it works it is easily scaleable so we’ll see.  Our last mail campaign was a fucking bust.  What else is new right??

I’m having trouble sleeping over this because once we get this one issue figured out the sky is the limit.

I haven’t been blogging much because there isn’t much to talk about other then my repeated failures.  I keep hoping that I’ll have something positive to write but it never happens.

Hopefully that day will come soon.

Apparently after Whitney Houston died, everyone was searching for “whitney houston crack head” because my blog got a shitload of traffic from that keyword.

Fuckin hilarious..

Sunday night, lets write! Whitney Houston, Redbox videos, Crack Cocain

Well things are progressing nicely midway through the month so I have no complaints.  It’s looking like I’ll hit goal again with my current employer, which is good because it will keep my job secure, and we have 1 more meeting scheduled before we will start selling under our own business.  Even if I don’t hit goal, I’m sure I’ll be close enough to it, that my employer won’t throw me under the chopping block again.  I really proved a lot to them last month and definitely bought myself some credibility.  The key thing to keep in mind is that I need to be able to quit when I’m ready and not a second sooner.  I don’t want to quit and just be wondering when the cash will start to flow again.  Don’t get me wrong, I’m 100% confident in this business venture we are launching.  However, I know from experience that things never take off as quickly as you expect them to, so it’s best to play it safe until we start closing deals.

I’m also doing a good job of staying on budget and refraining from going out and wasting money, although I must admit it’s getting harder and harder.  Now that I have some cash saved, it’s easier for me to go out for a drink or two because I can afford it.  Another problem is that I’m cooped up in my apartment all day and just itching to get out of here once my work day is done so it’s hard to just remind myself; “not yet, your time will come,” and stay at home with a red box movie.  I’m addicted to red box like Whitney Houston is addicted to crack.

I still don’t have enough saved yet, and to be honest, I don’t know if I ever will.  I would like a minimum of 6-12 months worth of expenses saved before I 100% throw in the towel with my current employer, so we shall see.

I do have a large purchase that I have to make and I’m not to thrilled about it.  I need a new computer for this new gig and I do want something that’s top of the line.  I’m not going to waste my money on another computer that will be obsolete in a year or two like this one, so if I buy one I’m going to go all out.  The problem is that this obviously costs money, and although I can afford it, that money is better off being saved incase something happens with my current job.

I honestly don’t have much of a choice though.  All of our phones go through our internet connection with work and my current job already has 1 phone stealing bandwidth.  Add another phone to that along with all of the software I’m going to need and there is no way this computer can handle the load.  I’m going to see about financing it and buying myself some time that way.  I just need time right now.

Aside from all that, not much else going on.  Final “pre-launch” meeting is on Tuesday so I’m fired up!  This week we have to get some things sorted out with our marketing so we can hit the ground running when we are ready to sell.  I’m excited and looking forward to making millions.  Its been my obsession/goal for the better part of the last 6 years so I’m ready!
