“We never leave a Contractor behind!”
Several years ago I invested heavily into the production of a Contractor Exchange site. Mistakes were made, we hired a team from overseas, we did not anticipate a recession and we leveraged out so far that we almost did not recover.
The recovery process has been slow but steady
Taking a “step back and licking our wounds” took eight long years! During that period in 2008 we had to file for protection to keep the agency going. It was a very stressful time. The financial losses were substantial and we cut everywhere we could. It all seemed so hopeless.
Foreclosure, divorce, bankruptcy reorganization and loss of insurance markets and a failed investment would have been the doom of just about any business person. I thank God for the strength to carry on.
One day when I literally sat with my elbows on the desk, tears running from my eyes a thought passed through my mind…”How am I going to make it? How can I pay all these bills and recover? I certainly do not want to get old and die in poverty.” And then the spirit came upon me…
It was as if I had been touch on the top of my head and the inner spirit said..”Focus on what YOU CAN DO… and leave the rest up to me.”
“Focus on what ” I can do ” and leave the rest up to you?”
I lifted my head from my hands, looked down at some quote requests and one at a time I began to make calls, follow-up on other leads, began to study and learn WordPress and took one step forward…one step at a time….thus, working the weekends and evenings. “Little by little” the effects of the financial scare started to subside. And… I took full control of the web projects with help from Wordpress and with help from some very special people in the WordPress.org community. I thank many of them greatly.
