Progress Report

 

Glass of Sherry

Much underestimated; sherry.

I have been quiet recently. Progress has been slow. Unusually for me, I have been working.

I wrote before about setting simple goals this year. As January draws to a close, this is a progress report.

I haven’t lost two stone, or published a novel. I have bought a company though. Look at that. January not yet finished, and I have one of the year’s three goals in the bag. How’s that for progress?

I have signed the contract for the deal, but I can’t reveal what it is for a couple of days yet, not until I have paid for it. They can be funny like that; vendors.

My last venture was in partnership with a great friend, and this one is no different. However, this time, I am the senior partner. Allow me to introduce my Chief Operations Officer, Tamodan Midnight Sun, or Nero as he is more commonly known.

Nero Assessing Progress

CV

This is his first real management position, but he is off to a flying start. We have had several management meetings, and he is never short of an apposite bark or dismissive sniff.

We have secured ourselves a very desirable office on the Castledown Business Park, and tomorrow we collect the keys.

Exciting times.

    May I suggest Nero and yourself have walking meetings, they have become very popular within management in the last year. I am yet to convince my boss of the benefits though…

    Seriously, Stuart it all sounds very exciting, lots of good stuff ahead and I can’t wait to see what sort of business you’ve got yourself. It must feel good to have already achieved a goal.

    Best wishes

      Nero was, I feel, a pioneer on the ‘walking meetings’ front. Always been a favourite of his. That, and barking while I’m on the phone. (He’s very cost-aware.)

    Best of luck with the new venture and may you still have time to tick all those boxes.

      No box shall go unticked, Decorator!
