I am an engineer by training.
I love the precision and certainty of building something like a bridge. It
gives me so much satisfaction. We are building a new type of transportable
lightweight bridge that can be moved by a light truck. The prototype was a
great success, got critical acclaim and is being purchased by the city.
I’m not as comfortable with
the business side of things. It’s riddled with uncertainty. I never know what's
going to happen next week. We have one order but I don’t know when we will get
the second one. I always look at the bank account to see how many days of cash
we have left. I keep thinking our chief engineer is going to quit. Our
investors are supportive but they always have odd and irrelevant requests. I don’t
know if this is meant to help or is a signal that they don’t trust me.
I cannot imagine what life is
going to like in a year’s time.
