Right now, it feels like we are in one of those phases. Lots seems to be happening and the business plan is out to a load of people - and not all of them will say yes and help push the ball up the hill. Until one or more of them do, it's just a battle of endurance. I'm glad I'm over the flu that has had me on my knees for the last couple of weeks - because at the moment I need to muster all of my strength to keep the film moving forwards.
I know we have an excellent business plan and with the right investor(s) behind us then we are sure to achieve the level of success that we are predicting - but until that time it's a kind of war of attrition!
Still as Mr Carruthers would say, "Onwards and upwards and a little bit sideways."
