At Jason L, we like to walk a mile in our customers’ shoes. Actually. So here’s what we have to say to “Shane” about his business troubles…
This is Shane.
I’ve never done this… you know, written a diary. It’s heaps soft. But Shirley (she’s my wife) suggested it. She knows everything. Like architecture and literature and whether it’s right for Shane Watson to be picked as a batsman. Anyway, I’m doing that thing that Shirley says: obfusgating. Or is it obfuscating.
Here’s my problem: I started a business 19 months ago. We do custom market research for production houses and ad agencies. We broke even at 11 months and demand picked up. We landed two bigger accounts shortly after.
To meet the growing demand, I hired more staff including this really sharp industrial psychologist that wears soft lace-up shoes and indie bracers. He’s indispensible. Not sure I’d bring him to the footie with the mates. Obfuscating.
Here’s the crux of it: We just moved to Alexandria. I rent a single-floor office with a separate meeting room to hold focus groups, present research to clients, pitch for new business, and eat pizza. It’s our workspace and our front face.
But it’s shabby. My desk is dad’s old one. Red wood. Straight out of Wall Street in the 70s. I may as well wear a Khaki suit, baggy pants, and jacket to my knees. Our cabinets are from op-shops, and we really need desk screens and decent chairs (because our spines will be as straight as Neil Patrick Harris).
The staff started moaning in secret. They now openly joke about my penny pinching. Even my mates rag me. My mates! But I’m cash strapped. Yes, we’re winning more business but cash flow’s messed up.
So I have no idea where to find the capital to deck out our office. Laid down enough cash upfront.
I’m no Stephen Hawkins, but if I don’t upgrade our office, my whole business will fall into a black hole. Really.
