Return On Investment

Picure below is my more attractive blog double

I have been working on budgets this week.
Before this week, I have been travelling more than normal.
Just for fun, I have mixed in a bit of speaking to some fun people down in Arkansas.

I actually like doing budgets.
We are doing our normal budget version, where will we finish this year.
We are also doing our normal budget version, where will we finish next year.

Just for fun, we are adding in what we expect for 2008 and 2009.

Here is what is funny. We can actually plan that far in advance with some accuracy.

Here is what is exciting. We begin to see exponential growth from the seeds we first planted last year.

It is encouraging to stop and plan when you can find your work will bear fruit.

In fact, I sit here at the end of a very long week more energized than I was on Monday walking in.

The realization of a strong ROI, brings energy and focus.

Here is the irony.

I have carefully laid out 3 years of hiring, spending, creating and profits.

I have no idea what I am doing this evening when I get home.

I hope I will be able to stay awake and head back down to Nashville to see our son play late tonight.

If it were at 8 or 9 (which actually would be bad for him as those are not great spots for a band), it would be an easy oh sure! We're in.

But as he is headlining, it will be 11 or later and I am not always young enough to start an evening that late.

Such a weak dilemma I know.

Here's hoping I am young enough to keep up with our son this evening and I don't wuss out as a tired pickle.

I know the ROI will be a good one.
