    So ya'all know I sold my company last Fall. I have been holding on to the large warehouse that I had then (and losing money every month) while anticipating that at some point I would want/need it again. Stupid. Straight loss. Violated my own principle of ruthless expense reduction.

    Even thought I am still on a retainer from the company that bought me out, it doesn't mean I should be stupid with money. So, that changes tomorrow.

    I have one more company left to build, but I need it to be profitable from it's first day. So, tomorrow two guys and a truck are coming over to take anything I haven't liquidated into my new mini storage location. The first of October I will move in to my new small office (includes wifi, common areas, receptionist, printer, conference room, etc...) so I can get back to my roots.

    You want every dollar you make in the early days to be able to be reinvested in the company. This new company will keep financials from day 1, so it will be critical for future investors and/or exit strategy for the company to show ruthless expense reduction.

    I will post some pics here some time next week, but it's nothing to write home about. Interior office, cool new modern office center, easy access, a mile or two from the storage facility where in the early days the merchandise will flow through, and... cheap.

    If you come visit me, we won't meet there anyway. We'll meet at the beach, which is where I'd rather be most days. Separate your TIME from your INCOME.

    I read that Zuckerberg covers all his device cameras with electrical tape.

    I'm naked 1/2 the time at my desk so they would quickly move on to the next camera if they look through mine :eek:

    UnrealCreative, I don't know how you handle that stool. I change chairs about once a month and I buy the nice padded ones. Apparently my a$$ is much skinnier than my stomach is. Maybe just boney... :)

    I'm coming down next month.

    I need a picture of the beach, the marina, the bar, and the wait staff ~ oh, and your boat.

    How did I miss this thread?

    My partner and I with our small office.

    I see a lot of you working from home in your work stations, and maybe that works perfect for you, but for me I must admit my productivity went up a notch by moving to a 'real' office.

    If you have the capital I can only recommend renting even a little office space like ours here.
