We’ll start with the huge announcement first:

My sister is having a boy!!! Early May can’t come soon enough. (I’m sure she feels the same way.) I figure we’ll start training when he’s 3 months old and we’ll add weights to the mix once he’s 2 years old.

The first small announcement is:

I joined Twitter. A few of my clients strongly encouraged me to join. I’m doing this more of an experiment because I really don’t understand the purpose of Twitter (the way most people use it). So I’m going to try to make all of my ‘tweets’ as they call it, have some sorts of value…

Follow me! My thingy is twitter.com/MyBodyTutor

(I’m going to do an entire post on my thoughts on Twitter.)

The second small announcement is:

The all new MyBodyTutor is coming soon. I keep saying that but it really is. We’re testing and debugging and tweaking and doing all the final (and necessary) things before launch.

I’ve said it before but I’ll say it again. I am a perfectionist when it comes to certain things. (I always knew being a perfectionist was a good thing!) I’ve put my blood, sweat, and sleepless nights into this and I want it to be as great as it can be. Actually, I want it to be flawless.

When you have the luxury and ability to self-fund your company you don’t have to answer to anyone. If I want to wait until I feel everything is perfect I can! I don’t have deadlines. The only deadlines I have are self imposed ones.

Even if it’s not ‘smart’ for the business; whatever that means. A VC-funded company would say get it done – no matter what – and your clients will deal with it. They’ll get over the imperfections.

My clients, I think, would be even more than forgiving! That’s not the point. I think it’s the attitude of: Grow! Grow! Grow! At all costs. Worry about the business first then worry about your clients.

But my clients deserve my best attempt at perfect. Why? They allow me to do what I love doing!

I want it to be perfect for my clients because they are my business! The notion of ‘losing 1 customer to get 10’ is not my style. You can never, ever, forget the person that brought you to the dance.

I’m not even close to the dance yet. I’m not even close! But we’re getting there. We’re headed in the right direction and that’s what counts. Step by step.

The new website is truly how I think of my company. It accurately reflects my vision for MBT. Everything from the colors to the logo to the wording to the pictures on the sides to the case studies to the emails to the application to everything I’ve obsessed over!

We’re not just building a front-end site. That’s been done for a little while already.

We built a custom application from the ground up because there is nothing out there like this. This is the main reason why redoing our website took so long. I refused to compromise on one single thing.

The application is incredible. It’s truly first class. The functionality is amazing. The intuitiveness built into it is something we worked very hard on too. And I can’t wait to show it off to my clients. I know they’re going to love it!

What the application allows me to do is to take this tiny little company and turn it into an organization and most importantly it makes the client experience 100% better than it is now and allows me to better serve them.

(I’m going to write a post that details exactly what the new website has once it’s up.)

In the mean time, I’d like to thank my amazing web team, TerraFrame, for working so hard! We’re getting there…

Stay tuned…
