Reflections of the past 10 years ...
I experienced more highs by meeting and partying with the most interesting people who became lifelong friends. I started 5 businesses which included a Sushi Bar, B&B Hotel, Fishing Charters, Real Estate and Professional Services. By the end of 2007, all the businesses were in the black and I had 14 employees. By the end of 2008 (after the global crash), I had zero businesses and no employees. It was a wild ride and the Highs out numbered the Lows.
As a community we endured through the TSD Receivership process; as well as the Homex purchase and subsequent bankruptcy; participated in the HOA organization of absentee homeowners and lobbying for our $2MM USD special assessment to finish the common areas. We worked through the abandoned units one by one to legally and financially clean up the gray shells and bare land lots that were in default. We saw the collapse of Road 9 Tech Services; and bringing Telmex to Loreto Bay. We started the commercial leasing in 2011 to bring shops and services to the paseo. I took on completing Las Posadas Condos at the request of Homex and we are getting close to the finish line.
