OK, I hate to admit it, but I'm getting a bit wobbly. I'm all alone out there right now and the wolves are howling.
It would be so nice to cuddle up in the warm embrace of some VC, or even an angel. With a name like "angel" how could I go wrong?
I'm even deeper right now in the situation than I was when I wrote the manifesto. I'm scraping by, trying to pay more than just the minimums but looking at some much bigger bills in the next couple of months.
What's going to keep me solid? Well, it changes from day to day. Yesterday it was finding a couple of sites that encouraged me, I'll have more on those soon.
Today it is the fact that I got some great confirmation from a customer -- a real live paying customer -- in the form of a check and also some encouragement about how precisely we are solving a huge problem that she knows she's going to have in January. Unfortunately not everyone is able to project forward to January, so I know the phone will be ringing then.
But for now, it's quiet.
OK, time for me to get some marketing stuff done. You go back to work, too!
