What are your Q2 Results?

As we are rounding up the month of June, a.k.a. the first half of 2016, many businesses will be making public a financial analysis of the last three months. This is often called The Q2 Results. This is a roundup of revenues earned and expenditure made in the months of April, May and June, and a final conclusion of whether an overall loss or profit has been made.

Back in March, we took you through the Q1 results, why companies do it, and why it is important for us as individuals to also take a stock of  our  achievements and shortcomings, and everything else we feel may add to or take value away from us.  We also made mention of the fact that your Q1 results is a good indication of the way the rest of the year will go if current trends continue.

Similarly, by the end of Q2 you should have a very good indication of whether you are on track to achieve some of the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the year. It’s probably also time to make some major changes - be it of habit or of mindset - if you would like to stay on track to achieving success, whatever that means to you. 
Organising wedding favours is no joke!
Just like the shock BREXIT results which has almost all European businesses in every industry reeling, there might have been occurrences in the last three months that might have caused us to tumble. And that is OK, because it is not a crime to fall, but I do consider it sinful to stay down!  I also faced a few curve balls which literally knocked the wind out of my sails, namely the sad passing of my grandfather. It is something that tore my heart into a million pieces. But I take comfort from knowing that he has joined the saints, rooting for me to succeed. 

It’s not all bad though. In my post about Q1, I did mention that my fiancĂ© and I have been heavily investing time, money and energy in a few projects which I couldn’t reveal at the time. However, as we get ready to step into the second half of the year, I am now ready to reveal that a) I have been planning my wedding and am getting ready to be a blushing bride in October; and b) my fiancĂ© and I have launched our facilities management company!
Alpha & Diamond is a first class facilities provider 
Amongst all the all the chaos there has been little time for rest. There is no doubt that a lot of blood, sweat, tears, sleepless nights and many heated discussions have gone into both projects! I promise to document each separately, and take you through how to do both - launch a business and plan a wedding successfully.
That's it for now guys. What things have been going on for you in Q2? Click here to read our post about Q1 Results. Not before leaving a comment though!



  1. I love the idea of diving the year to analyse progress and achievements, just as companies would - it's a great concept! :)

    1. Hi Gabrielle. Thank you so much. I am glad you enjoyed it.
