You think you have everything in order. You created a plan. You’ve made the contact. Things look good. And you are just waiting for the big deal to come through.
I think The Verge is the most exciting place for an entrepreneur. But if you stay there too long, it’s a rattling place. You can become over anxious, discouraged, and frustrated because the ball is usually in someone else’s court. And sometimes it’s the ball that holds your business’s future.
I wonder if anyone can share their experiences of life on The Verge. How did you get through it? How did it work out? Did you keep calling or did you sit and wait? What alternative plans did you make in the meantime?
