well, just had a story in Dominion Post (main wellington newspaper) about keyring. Kind of serendipitous, I met the journalist through getstaffed, and he thought keyring was a great idea.
lots of traffic, lots of good feedback, requests to expand to hamilton and auckland and queenstown, one guy wanted to give me $1000 to invest in the company, bless him, and basically nothing went wrong. even had a ring from Trademe Property who want to discuss options for keyring (which will happen friday, at the trademe offices, the google of wellington!). So been a pretty good day.
some days being a unpaid IT entrepreneur-wannabe is great!
And, to make the day even better, my accountant previously told me I had 12K of outstanding tax, which is most unlike me since I normally overpay, so I was a bit shocked (especially with a current income measured in startup stock, which is pretty, but hard to eat!). Then today, he says IRD have just told him I overpaid, so now I get a refund! Which is a little sad, to be so happy about getting back money that was already mine, but, i guess thats the way us humans are wired!
So I’m ecstatic! Thanks IRD!
