Miss the boat

I just learn a idiom "Miss the boat", which is used to talk about a time when someone has missed a good opportunity.

Would you please help me to make a sentence with this phase ?

I heard about a business opportunity, but I was on holiday, so I missed the meeting. By the time I'd got back, the deal was done with someone else, so I missed the boat.
