No Man’s Land

Our CFO recently gave me a book called No Man’s Land by Doug Tatum. To my amazement, I realized that I’m not crazy, and that everything spinning out of control is actually normal when you take a company from 10 employees to 200 in 3 years. It’s interesting to think that a company can actually be profitable month to month, but have negative cash flows. Simply put, this book identifies with and gives hope to those in No Man’s Land, or the place where companies realize that they are too big to be small, and too small to be big. Although feeling a bit vulnerable, I have realized that we must focus on making the best decisions we can with the information we have, and not worrying about the things we can’t control.
