On my way home tonight, I discussed with Stacy TDS’ state of affairs. In business for six years, I feel like we have made great strides–we have built a great product, ThunderTix, we have created a great plugin for e-commerce, and we have automated much of our work. Despite all of our efforts, our overall sales have not outpaced our fixed costs in a way that benefits the business financially (read “me” :) ). Truly, after six years, what can we do differently to affect the bottom line? On Monday, the office will meet to discuss some ideas on how we can automate more and push projects through in a more timely fashion. Over the next few months, we’ll describe what we are doing to try to reach our goals and whether our new courses are working. Until then….I’m “on vacation”–or at least, trying to be.
