We're still here... Pretty cool!
When I first started the CG Cookie project, the oppression of failure statistics washed over me.
Nearly 80% of businesses survive the first year, the numbers swing to a mere 50% survive year five. According for Forbes.com only one in three businesses will see 10 years.
We've certainly seen our share of successes and failures over this past decade here at http://cgcookie.com. A string of experiences testing our resolve, and whit have lead us to a decade of experiences growing an online business in an every changing environment. Somethings we got right, somethings terribly wrong.
Today CG Cookie is made possible by our now 10+ entrepreneurial minded crew, operating as a 100% remote team across various time-zones and borders, being challenged and having a bit of fun along the way.
As we enter year 11, I suspect our next decade will be just as interesting if not as challenging as the first 10.
It's what gets me out of bed in the morning, taking on new challenges, working on meaningful work, helping people, and building something that didn't exist prior to the thought.
Here's to another 10 years for the Cookie!
