Doing the Happy Dance

In non-knitting news, I have reached a major milestone in a project I have been working on for quite some time. For the last two years, I have been trying to write a business plan focused on getting money so that my Dad can launch a new technology business. I finished business school in August of 2003 and immediately started working on the business plan - something that should have only taken 6 months or so to do and yet, here I am today. I have been meeting weekly with a business advisor who has a ton and a half years of experience and a financial advisor to help round out those skills I so strategically avoided in school. For the last year or so, we have been on a circular path that felt never ending and probably was. Fortunately, we have stumbled apon a potential partnership arrangement that has pushed us into completing the plan so that the investing company has something to look over before their trip out to see us in a week or so.

As of this afternoon, I have a final version of my business plan in hand and a huge weight off my sholders. Of course, the idea is that this is really just the beginning. But that's fine because I'm not scared of more work - just working around and around and around. So, I'd greatly appreciate if everyone who reads this crosses their mental fingers for me as we get ready to meet with this potential investor.

I'm crossing my mental fingers!

How many fingers and toes can be crossed without cancelling each other out? That must be one of life's most important philosophical questions. What I meant to say was "Good Luck!", but you know I can never leave well enough alone.
