Here we are on the other side of the equator. While the northern hemisphere is emerging from their frozen dens, the southern is gathering their harvest and preparing to nestle in for a long, cold, dark winter. As fate would have it, SoftSlam is waking up and the excitement is palpable.
Over the last few weeks, things have really heated up. First, we brought in a new shareholder. That makes three of us now. We are hoping to add a little excitement in our yearly shareholder meetings with a third person to liven the atmosphere.
Second, we are well and truly on our way to production. Time always seems to lag and as a project manager that is forever watching the clock and reporting on progress, my anxiety is amping up as I attempt to ensure that everything progresses smoothly and without undue delays. With a seven week lead time, we will have our tool in hand before the first day of winter which seems to be lurking just around the corner.
In the interim, I have been ordering all the bits and pieces that go along with the tool so that we will hit the ground running with production of 1000 pieces as soon as the first shots are approved. What an exciting time!
While I've been taking care of production. Nick has been making sales calls and installing prototypes across the country. We have so many happy customers. Each happy customer means one fewer chance of an injury, accident or damaged structure.
