This is a page from my book, “How I Sold My Business: A Personal Diary”
I've been traveling a lot lately, both in town and out of town, and I'm beat. Our business continues to chug along at the same pace, and there haven't been any inquiries from Marty lately. That's pretty disappointing, as we're coming up to our one-year anniversary of first hearing from Marty, but I've been busy enough with work that I don't think about it too much.
There are times our company seems pretty dysfunctional. One of the things I've been doing lately is giving speeches about our industry, which has resulted in me also giving interviews with some of the local newspapers. While these stories appear in the papers, I can't even get them on my own website. I want to say that we really suck at PR, but I'm reminded of a quote from a mentor in the computer consulting business: "You don't want to be your own best customer." This came from a VP at the consulting company I used to work for, and when I complained about some of the crappy computer setups we had, she dropped that quote on me.
