Go crazy? Don’t mind if I do!
This week’s achievements: have half-finished business plan for NEIS; have done full Cost of Goods Sold for three titles; have calculated revenue streams from advertising, cover sales, editorial services for custom mags and design services for custom mags; have tied these into a cashflow spreadsheet and filled in overhead costs; freaked out at what happens in March 2007 to our running balance if we try to do what we’d planned; moved the launch of Title 3 to April 2007 and started breathing again as the running balance returns to above zero; started our marketing action plan; approved business card designs; placed an ad on Seek for an ad sales person; interviewed for a web design person and learned scary things about pay as you go tax withholding, superannuation and workcover for staff.
So, today. Bike wouldn’t start due to cold. Finally made it to chiropractor having missed two weeks’ worth of appointments and one physio appointment, so in some measure of pain.
Got to work v. late. Set up DSL modem perfectly using ‘server’ computer. Discovered none of the other computers on the network would talk to it. Futzed. For far too long. Finally found the single setting on the modem set-up page that was only documented in the online documentation that made it behave. Everything worked fine.
Filled in more costs in cashflow. Coached colleague in chatting to prospective ad sales folk.
Interviewed one very promising ad sales guy. Had the grand joy of offering the web design job to silverblue. Ate pizza at work and watched Lost. Did my second assignment for NEIS. Sent it. Finally went home at 10.30pm by public transport in the freezing.
Now tired but very satisfied. And you should *see* our new company logo and business cards. They are teh awesome.
