This is a period where, provided the money is rolling in, you can afford a limited number of mistakes. However, this window of deceptive immortality is brief: six months, a year, 18 months at the outside. During this time, you either learn to expand or success gradually falls in on itself.
If you are wise, you won't expect to get rich during this period. This time isn't about Rolls Royces and nights on the town. It is about using the opportunity you've earned to grow bigger. It's about finding out what you never knew you could do. Companies that grow through this period successfully make big mistakes, but never mortal ones.
The best time to plan for such success isn't when it arrives. You need to start dreaming sensibly long before that.
