I am finally getting my blog back up and running again.
Since we last spoke, I have completely changed around my businesses. First, I shut down Black Bear Title. It made sense give the crappy housing environment. It fell into the "don't try to go against the current unless you are a salmon" rule.
Then I sold RentQuick. RentQuick had been my baby since I opened it in 1998. However, my focus was shifting to Zeus Digital Theaters and I knew I would not have much time for RentQuick anymore. This one fell under the "you can only stare at one thing at a time" rule.
So now I have Zeus up and running. We just had a great summer. July was way above my target numbers and we are hitting on all cylinders. We had a run of big block buster movies that brought out all kinds of new guests. I am still tweaking the business a little, but I expect it to be fairly stable going into next year and beyond. Not too bad for a startup in the middle of a global financial meltdown.
That brings us up to date pretty well.
