"Isn't it great being small?" the owner of another small business -- okay, not as small as daily5 -- told me recently over lunch. "We can change things. We can fix things. Fast!"
Cheers to that, I say. And this morning, after a pretty much sleepless night for myself and my development team, I'm happy to report that daily5Remodel went live at 6 a.m. EST. It's now 3.5 hours old, and already needs the inevitable tweaking and changing and fixing that all new launches require. We're going to take care of those fixes one by one.
In the weeks, months and years to come -- should we be among the minority of new businesses that survive, knock wood -- we hope to never to stop changing. I've worked in big organizations and tiny ones, and while I can't say that small is always necessarily more nimble than big, I can say that it's a lot more satisfying to work with, and be the customer of, a business that is willing and able to constantly improve.
So bring on your comments and suggestions. If something on the site isn't working for you, please let me know. I can't promise that we'll get on it right away, but we're working on it -- and we're listening.
Thanks. Welcome aboard!
