A short hiatus, but I am back on track again!

you are my inspiration and you give me a positive outlook on the world!
As you know from my first blog post we have been struggling economically since one of our partners embezzled a lot of money from our company, so it went bankrupt
We are currently in the court to get compensation for the losses incurred. I have informed our landlord about our situation and thought that we had agreed we could wait with our rent for some time.
A couple of weeks ago, however, he came back and asked us to vacate the flat within a week unless we paid him some money. In UAE, you pay your rent on a yearly basis, not monthly as is done most other places in the world. Our rent is US$ 40,000 per year, so it's not easy to get together money like this in a weeks time.
But, with the help of good friends and colleagues, we managed to get together sufficient funding to get us a couple of weeks stay of the vacation order. In this period, I needed to get a paid job or get other funding in place.
We have still a couple of days left before we have to vacate the flat, and a friend of mine have promised to fund us until the court make their decision. This funding will be available within a few days, and it will solve all our immediate needs! So I think we will manage.
Therefore, I am very happy that I can again move forward with my dream project of getting an online business up and running!
My WA-friends, this shows that you can manage everything if you have a positive outlook on the world! Therefore, thank you very much for the inspiration I get reading the blogs and follow the discussions going on.
And some day I hope I can contribute to this positive drive and inspire someone that needs it just then!
I wish you all success and prosperity!

Hi Rolf, How are you doing? I noticed that you mention you are in Abu Dhabi, right down the road from Dubai where I am.
