Last Wednesday ๐˜„๐—ฒ ๐—ฎ๐—ด๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฑ๐—ผ ๐—ฎ ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฝ ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐˜€๐˜๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต @โ€Œ๐—ฃ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—–๐—น๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฒ into a fantastic company youโ€™ll soon hear more about.



Immediately after that decision was made a client called me: they had lost a big contract and couldnโ€™t pay my outstanding work. ๐—”๐—น๐˜€๐—ผ, ๐—œ ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฐ๐—ฒ๐—น ๐—ฎ๐—น๐—น ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ท๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜‚๐—ฒ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฐ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜ ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜†๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ.



When adapting our cash flow forecasting tool I found an error which cost us a bit of runway too.



Then another potential client mailed and canceled a promising opportunity. ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ ๐—ฟ๐˜‚๐—ป๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜† ๐˜„๐—ฎ๐˜€๐—ปโ€™๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ป๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ถ๐—ป, but still a pain if it doesnโ€™t appear :)



Do I feel stressed? Iโ€™d say you get used to the ups and downs of working for yourself. ๐—•๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—ถ๐—ณ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚โ€™๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ท๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜ ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜€๐˜๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ ๐—ด๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐˜‚๐˜€๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ผ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜‚๐—ฝ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐—ฑ๐—ผ๐˜„๐—ป๐˜€ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ฎ ๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ ๐—ต๐˜‚๐˜€๐˜๐—น๐—ฒ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐—ณ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ด ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ ๐˜€๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฐ๐—ต.



Am I worried? Nope: there is still huge demand for our core service: ๐—–๐—ผ-๐—ฃ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ฝ.

Hope that helped you understand a little bit what being an entrepreneur really feels like sometimes :)
