My Baby is Walking and Going on Her First Date..

Fourteen months ago my baby was born… a tool that I had developed using spread sheets, was viewed by my Son-in-law. I’d asked him to, as a Computer Programing Company owner, to help me make it easier to use. I had sheets here and there linked together and to be honest I could no longer make head or tail of it.

He saw a potential profit making program and decided to develop it and write the program for me. We formed a company known as Bulldogs Turf Solution, and under it’s auspices the program was created. “terratry” was the babies name and she was born not long after he and my Daughter got stuck in.

Time has past, modules have been tested and like all children she grew. We added on and added one, and with their expertise we developed more and more. till she became a young adult. Was I then happy? Yes but she needed to develop a bit more and she did. Now she has been put to the test over and over, with a hiccup here and there and her reshaping has been magnificent.

Is she complete.? No, but she has reached a stage where all the basics are in her to perform her duties and return the required results. Naturally as we have gone along we have discovered things that will make her so much more desirable and these can be added .. they are not essential to the core of the program but will enhance her as she develops.

Has she turned out as I pictured?? Oh just so much more, way beyond my wildest dreams.. beyond more than I could have imagined.. she is beautiful, desirable and I’m sure going to be a success beyond my wildest dreams… I have now the task of marketing her.. sharing her with others… my.. and how well she performs in her cloud.

She goes on her first date next week, a golf club managed by a good friend of mine has agreed to do the beta testing for us, which will check out her stability and give us feed back from an outsider as to maybe more that is desired.

Four company directors… four company share holders… are we all happy with the results so far.??? Yes yes yes…. Now to find a web developer to build us a site conducive with the magnificence of our product…

Fly my little bird, fly fly fly……

  1. Exciting! When you’re ready to properly reveal it to the world, I’d be very happy to interview you on my blog about it as part of spreading the word (you know how I did with Lorna when her book was published). My Dad was basically a mathematician (when I say ‘was’, he’s still alive, but he’s retired!) – more on the electronics side though, a large part of his career was spent designing electronic components. We were the first people I knew to have a computer at home, and he used to write programs for it and share them in magazines. So reading what you’re doing gives me a little nostalgic feeling! Anyway, if you’re interested in being interviewed about it on my blog when you’re ready, just let me know (but equally, don’t feel obliged if you don’t want to!).

  2. This is very exciting, Rob! Really! I love entrepreneurial efforts that come from a need, then inspiration and collaboration with a lot of hard work! I hope this goes very well. Onward and forward. 🙂

  3. My heartiest congratulations on your success, Rob! I wish you all the luck in the world. Good code is nothing to sneeze at–you’re lucky you had someone you could trust in. Hooray for Teratry!

    • Thanks Bud… without them the project would never have got off the ground… just don’t have the money it would take to have someone else write it for us…

  4. You have so many cheering fans here on WordPress alone, that success is a given! I am excited for you and compliment you on being clever enough to see and understand a new need and to invent and develop a way to meet that need. You are not only a wonderful photographer and story teller, but an insightful clairvoyant! Best of luck to you.

    • Wow how to answer… thank you for such a mind-blowing complement.. Mathematics is my forte and circumstances warranted the need to control, assess and save on the Golf Courses where I was working… I developed the program and executed the required need for saving.. Golf courses are finding themselves strapped in the present climate of financial difficulty, and my plans and analysis worked, enabling me to reduce budget each year without laying off labour… it’s all about understanding where and why the money is being spent… ones spend profile… if you don’t know where it’s going you can’t save it.. and that was the basis one which we developed ,, a brilliant program that works…but thank you for the kind words and we are confident it will succeed …

    • I am at present still under a gag order by the other directors or partners… but it is a financial analytical tool.. used by sports institutions for cost saving, control and cost analysis… it’s all about one’s spend profile…

  5. What a wonderful way to describe your new product – like the trials, tribulations, and rewards of raising a child and then letting go and allowing it to try its wings. I am so happy for you and I know you will be amazingly successful :).

  6. bulldog, I am smiling and soooo excited for you! this is spectacular news and has to feel like a dream come true with a lot of hard work making it a reality that will be a success. WAHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!! It does not get any better than that, best of luck to you in your “retirement”, now you can make the real money!

    • Thanks.. the dream is becoming a reality… the money will just be the icing on the cake when it starts to happen… the success is thanks to the work of the whole team… my “little bird” is now a “big eagle” ready to swoop the skies…

  7. Outstanding, Bulldog! Congratulations to you and your son-in-law! It sounds exciting – I hope she knocks everyones socks off and you become rich beyond your wildest dreams!

  8. Oh bulldog ~ I am so happy for you! I know how hard you have been working on this project, and now to think it is about to launch this way ~ and golf club – perfect! Hope you are feeling strong and ready to enjoy success with this business of yours — it’s very exciting to have been around to watch you unfold it! Much Love ~ Robyn
