Try hoisting it up a flagpole and see who salutes.

In the space of 3 hours I have gone from “walking on air” to “carrying the weight of the world. When you put “heart and soul” into a business, you live the highs and the lows. Currently it’s a low.

It means that we may need to substantially revise our business model and take the business in a different direction for future years. It may mean more investment is needed, and it will be longer before we see profits paying us back. Sorry for speaking in “management language”… for further information on this language see Gus Hedges in “Drop the Dead Donkey” http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drop_The_Dead_Donkey

It’s nothing new. We’ve been here for 41 years and survived enough “challenges” and “opportunities” whilst “keeping the ball in the air” and “cooking on full heat”. Hopefully we can keep our bank manager “on line” and “supportive”.

Still………. I have to remind myself of what I posted in February 2007………

When everything seems to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it.
