Personal and business achievements in 2009

Why not write the resolutions which I managed to achieve and those which I may regret a bit but is just a part and parcel of life? Right? Especially as posterity....Isn't a blog is an online diary?

As this is a business and legal blog, let looks at it in the business sense.

There was one big event where my legal firm changed from having three partners to two partners. I am one of the one who stay and my partner whom I opened up the small legal firm ten years ago is still here. We have been through the phase of shouting at each other on how to pay our small car then to managing a firm of nearly 15 people. We have been through 3 other partners but we have stuck with each other through all the business decisions, bad or good, the personal tumult, personal accomplishment and all that one can think of when you are 10 years together.

We celebrated our 10 years of opening the firm on 20.09.2009 as we registered a firm known as Khairul, Suhaila & Co. 10 years ago on 20.09.2000. In all the 10 years, not all were rosy and lovely. We had to scrape whatever we could find, we had to inject a lot of investment, we sacrificed some of our personal investment and we did all that while we fall in and out of love, build a home, meet new friends and all that jazz....

As for my own personal investment, I actually revamped my portfolio this whole year. I sold one high-end property, got the key to the office I bought with my partner, pawned off another semi high-end property to pay for some debt the firm had invested in, sold of a bungalow plot, sold off a property investment I bought with my wife and refinance my house. Still waiting for one or two of those revamps still in the process of being completed but they are nearly completed.

Of course, there is that one personal hurdle which I consider as my Everest in my writing career. I have finally finished writing my first non-fiction and have been commission to write four other books (2 of them are translation, but need to be written from scratch). In my repertoire there are 4 ideas of fiction where I want to propose to another publisher under a different name and I actually have 2 scripts which some directors have shown interest in.

Yes, from the list above, you can only imagine how busy my 2010 will be. I am readying myself for a new decade and hoping what I do on a personal level will help my business go to another level. It is a daunting task but I think I am up for it...

Have a great New Years Eve and Have a Great Year Ahead....
