End of Month Report – April 2022

End of Month Report - April 2022

We missed the End of Month/Q1 - March report. So this month's report is essentially a Year to Date report.

First a shoutout to Jacqueline Meneses for stepping in big time and for all the wonderful kudos we've received from clients. So well done Jaq!

Some Numbers for Perspective

  • 2021 vs 2022 Quarter on Quarter – we grew 66% in Gross revenue ($40K vs $66K)
  • This year so far we’ve made $13K, $22K, $30K, $10* (* final numbers are pending) in gross revenues – Point is we are growing about 40%in gross revenues.
  • Last year as a company we clocked 17,600 production hours and so far this year we are at 7,000 hours. We are already 40% there.


    Takeaway based on these numbers:

  • We are winning clients but we need clients who stick around for a long time.
  • We are growing but growth has been slow
  • What is growth if we are all not 100% utilized? Some of our team members don’t work fulltime yet and that is our focus for the next 3 months.


“What gets measured, gets improved” To achieve our 2022 goals we set out the following key areas for improvement. Each month, we’ve been tracking our progress against this: How are we doing?

Modular Thinking – 15%

THE GOOD: — (We’ve added a few more modules, but not enough.


  • we’ve built ONE module – the [REDACTED] dashboard. I expected to see several more.
  • We expect Mo Majdali and all project managers to make this their OKR. Talo, Harrison, Kristina, Castillo I expect you guys to build and share modules every week. We’ll be tracking this in a Leaderboard. dashboard.
Just to remind everybody, what is a module?
  • Anything repetitive or has a defined number of steps (Ex: Client on-boarding, new hire on-boarding, scope of work, NDA, sharing LinkedIn access, payroll, end of week reports, utilization tracking etc) is a module.
  • If you can create a process or able to delegate a task – that’s a module.
  • If a task takes 7 steps and you reduce 2 steps by building a process – that’s a module.

    Be Technology First – 0% Negative Territory (No Change Here)

  • We continue to lag behind on the tech side. We’ve duct-taped our way to this point but we we wont make it to where we want to be without a website.
  • Focus for Remotual is to be a product based company vs service based company – We’ve started the process to build our very first product – Remotual Connect. We’ve initiated, we are working our way through a blocker. Slow going but I am glad we started.

Organized – 60%

  • I have not seen process improvement but I know there are some in the works. So till I see them…no change here.
  • I hope we are making decisions using systems, using dashboards.
  • We need to be more proactive.
  • We are not making the most of it because we don’t have modules.

Leverage – 75%

  • I experience the more progress made here. Personally, I’ve now been able to focus on company level and not project level.
  • Mo, Talo, how are you guys getting leverage? How can you delegate more and help focus on company building?

Consistent Pipeline of Work – 70%

  • First half April was stellar. We were getting so many responses to our proposals.
  • We continue to do a fair job of keeping a steady pipeline of jobs but not enough.
  • Upwork is our primary source – couple things.
  • We need to squeeze more juice out of this lemon. We are not doing enough
  • We are too reliant on one source and we have to expand. The lowest hanging fruits are
    • “Referrals” from past and existing clients
    • LinkedIn outreach
    • Email Campaign
    • Inbound Marketing

Company Building – 75%

  • Friday Happy hours are becoming consistent.
  • Waiting for the website to be done so we can start inviting guests to our TownHalls.
