That sure was a long, long time to wait to earn your first dollar

Small work table at USPS office
There is no Ivory Tower for the startup entrepreneur.


It took four years, eleven months to earn the first dollar.

And in the sixth year, the goal is to go from barely earning anything to recording a profit.

Lofty with low probability because of the track record.

Yet… the law of the harvest prevails – we will reap what we sow.

The notion of 90% plan, prepare, build, 10% execute.

But once the doors open for real business (and now they officially are), the percentages begin to change.

Don’t expect the weather to cooperate with your harvest schedule.

Yet do expect to harvest.
