Update 4: No new revenue and a quiet week

Jochem Gerritsen @jochemg

While my previous update was very positive, last week was a quiet week, and unfortunately, I didn't get much done.

  1. What did we work on last week?

✅ Spoke to a couple of people who are potentially interested in joining one of our entrepreneur mastermind groups.

✅ Worked on our Slack channels, to improve them further. Now I have to get the commitment of a few people to regularly post in them.

❌We didn't sell any more spots for our mastermind groups.

❌My colleague is starting a full-time job, so it will be difficult for us to keep working together. That's a shame and I'll have to see what the impact of this is on our workload.

2) What are we working on this week, and what are our goals?

  • Sell a new mastermind group to at least 1 new entrepreneur.

  • Keep working on Slack engagement

  • Same revenue target as last week (€1250 in MRR ($1468))
