I have not updated this thread since April. I was hoping to have some more to say in regard to wins, but unfortunately that is not the case. The market for what we are competing against has shifted drastically. In the long term there is not a single doubt in my mind that we can win, but unfortunately most employees don't deal in the long term, so we have to play pricing games which does not work for us at the moment. So I continue to stay in contact and build relationships. When the time is right everything is in place, and I will be there with a solution.

In happier news, there are a few developments on other products and materials. By other developments I mean that we have some pretty big support behind us on some pretty major materials. We are invited to bid on a material for some continental business in 2020. I am also working on expanding our friends business into new geo-markets with existing products that they are the leading player with.

So it is all pretty high level at this point, and nothing is set in stone. However, the potential of all this just continues to increase. We are in an excellent spot right now, and have several irons in the fire which will literally get our names on the map when it comes to this industry. At that point if anything comes up, we will be invited to the table.

On the personal side we have more excitement going on. My daughter turns 1 in a couple of days, and we have another one due in February of next year! The thought of keeping this business high level, and mostly in the board room, REALLY excites me. I am going to dress my kids up in suit and blazer and they are coming with me to board room meetings before they are 10, mark my work. Have them sit in some government-brain-drain institution, or come with daddy and hammer out 10 million dollar deals? Yea, I know where I want them to be...
