We run a succesful business these days, and are currently turning it upside down. Here's why! Early 2009, things were not going so well with Paladin. We had a great team, but too little projects, and the crisis started to kick in. It turned out that this would be our worst year ever. Even though we worked almost full-time on EnerCities, we developed it at a loss and had to prefinance a whole bunch. In the third quarter of 2009, we had a huge debt. Our promising clients of 2008 cut their budgets, and we were out of credit. To survive, we had to fire half of the team and seriously cut back on all types of expenses.
