A month since my last update

Thursday, April 26th, 2007

Sorry! I have been so busy that I’ve not been updating this blog as often as I would want. Let me do a quick summary of what we’ve been up to….

First we had a GREAT Q1. We grew revenues 83% from the prior year and continued to have excellent customer satisfaction and new customer sign-ups. We hired our 100th employee last week (we’re already at 105).

During the first week of April we took the entire sales team offsite for training. This included external and internal instructors and was very well done. We invest heavily in training for all of our employees and will continue to do so.

The second week of April, I took a few days off to spend with my kids. My 6 year old son is officially now braver than I am on roller coasters, in fact he laughs at my nervousness (and he’s only 6!). Meanwhile our technical team spent the week in Oslo with the engineers which I am led to believe was also excellent technical training.

This week, I’m in England. Board meeting yesterday and then last night, I took our lead investor to the Chelsea vs Liverpool Champions League semi-final. This was an amazing experience for him (a US guy that has never before been to an English football match).

Meanwhile, we had our product council meetings this week where we regularly meet to discuss product direction. We have some amazing things coming along and I know that our customers will continue to be really happy. Business is great!

Tomorrow I get to go home. Before then I have a customer meeting, an analyst call and a press meeting to attend.

Meanwhile fingers crossed that Virgin upgrade me in the morning on the long flight back to San Francisco.

More soon…
