The month of May is almost over. What a month. We welcomed 36 new customers at Smartplan. And we are starting to see existing customers asking to get their 100% off corona coupon removed, to start planning again. This feels good. Like a fog slowly lifting.

Checking our churn channel more often than what is rational. Running a SMB with revenue based on SMBs in our market is making me nervous.

Running a small business is hard enough, but at least it’s all on ourselves. We can always treat our customers better, improve our product and find more sales channels. All we can do now is wait to see how bad it will get.

Staying on the path

This post really resonated with me. Especially this:

There’s a long parade of companies that placed growth above all else, got big, then never got to actually extract any profits because the market disappeared or self-inflicted wounds took them down.

Taking profits every year, along the way, insulates owners from ending up as the last, biggest fool to buy a stake before the valuation stops growing.

We’re often confronted with growth discussions. Either from outside the company or inside.

Often I hit my self in the head with this question:

Are we growing fast enough?

Reading DHH’s post gives me confidence in the fact that we are growing organically.

There is a path forward where we grow slow and steady. Right now I just want to stay on that path.

Det her job altså. Har lige brugt 2 timer (skulle tage 30 min) på en interessant samtale med en studerende der søger studiejob hos os. Og nu skal jeg have fokus tilbage i noget kode til en kæmpe opdatering. Samtidig med at dagens supporter meldte sig syg i morges.

Jeg er glad for at jeg ikke er politiker. Respekt for dem som stiller op. Jeg glæder mig bare til, at det er mandag i morgen. For det er det sejeste ved at have egen virksomhed. Nemlig at det er vores egen lille verden hvor vi og ikke andre, har lavet reglerne.

“Most conversion work, most business-development work, most sales work is a grind —a lot of effort for a little movement. You pile those little movements into a big one eventually, but that fruit is way up at the top of the tree.”

@jasonfried og @dhh fra it doesn’t have to be crazy at work.
