I was going through my blog posts in the past year and came across the usual New Year Resolutions that I wrote on January 4th. I was saying back then:
After February it’s all a bit of a mystery. All I can say is that my resolution for this year is to be able to work hard on all the projects/startups I am part of, grow my company and be close to my family. Maybe get a dog as well.
The mystery was the thought that our next be thing will be in Romania. It was a hard decision to make and it had quite a ripple effect, ripples which still oscillate out there.
You all know what followed after our move to Romania. There are too many big things that happened this year to list all. In spring, we launched our first software as a service product, HandicapServer.com. In summer we closed the chapter on our studies for a while with JUB and EPFL and we are now loan-free titled engineers. In fall we bought Take Off Labs a home and in winter we got a dog AND we also had our colleagues from Golf Genius Software visit us in Cluj. We managed to show them a bit of Romania in the few days they were here and I think they loved it :). Also, in all this time we made tens of releases with thousands of features on our favorite startup - Golf Genius and their products - GolfLeagueGenius, GolfTripGenius and their iOS apps.
There’s not much to wish for in 2014, but to stay healthy and keep the releases going. I don’t think it is possible in any shape or form to have something better than 2013, at least for a while. Let the ripples fade away…
Happy New Year!
