I had this feeling when I opened my business checking account (questions and genuine conversation from the account rep...I actually have that account rep as one of my customers!), and from family. It`s a great feeling, a good motivator.
Didn`t you like the feeling? Man.. I was there 4 years ago.. It feels good when you can describe your business as to saying "Well I don`t know we are still thinking about it" LOL I heard that when I was registering it at C of Commerce.
WOW...I know how you all feel, these moments are wonderful...
let me just say before I continue that I am an OPTIMIST...with that said
I haven`t made any money with my venture yet, so a lot of times the stress and the achievements kind of cancel each other out, I`m NOT being negative, I`m a realist, and just thinking out loud...
I love what I do and started it never thinking of making any money, People have said to me, "you sacrifice everything just to do automotive enthusiast features". Well, I don`t feel that way, it`s a life style..I`m a car guy who loves to produce.
thank you for encouraging us to speak about our business...that`s why I`m here to talk with and learn from all of you, and have fun doing what I love...just as you all are!
Back from vacation! Feeling good.
Great Topic. I have a rare bottle of tequilla that I have been saving for many years for my brother and I to open one day and make toast to our success.
Initially, I thought that moment would come when we found our manufacturer, then thought maybe when we had our first big order placed, but that didn`t feel like "the moment" Then I considered maybe when we get our actual patent number. Now I`ve revised that moment entirely.
The new "day to celebrate" moment will be when we switch from paying off our initial debt to making a solid profit.
Why I didn`t see it that way in the first place I just don`t know.
I`ll let you all know when that moment arrives.
