UPDATE: I got a new profile name, in tribute to Shia Labeouf. Look it up. If you ever need good motivation or a laugh, he's your guy. But in all seriousness, "do it" is my mantra.

My most recent transaction was a bust. Luckily we were able to unwind it, and I didn't lose much money in the deal. But it was stressful, to say the least, especially with the amount of money on the table. I won't go into detail about it, but I will tell you that I've learned a lot about improving my vetting process of business opportunities. I am much stronger and hardened by this most recent experience, and much wiser as well. Many sleepless nights on this one for the past month. But the ordeal is over, and it's time to move on.

While dealing with all of that during this past month, I did unify most of my businesses under one brand finally. My web hosting, web site maintenance, and accounting software businesses fall under one name, my US corporation. My contractors all now handle help desk tickets through our WHMCS system. It's all centralized now. My last step is to get the remaining customers out of Freshbooks and into WHMCS.

WHMCS is a great billing platform. I won't go much into this since it's a large topic. But if you do any eCommerce, you should check it out.

For the new year, I will be rewriting a lot of our accounting software products to prepare for mass marketing since we are one brand now. Also, since all of our customers will be in WHMCS, I will be able to "cross-market" all of them very easily, offering any of our other products and services. The trust has already been established and engrained. Lastly, I'll plan on launching an online school linked to our online community. It's a lot on my plate, but since my last day of consulting is March 31, 2020, I will have a lot more free time come April.

Retirement from the slowlane.
