Jobs! One thing you can certainly say is when you have a small business there are a lot of things to do, and seldom enough time to accomplish them all. When we began the business one point we both firmly agreed on was that we want to offer jobs for others, and a way to lift up others. In our grand plan we will have grown to have a sizable work force accomplishing much of the work.
Businesses take work and a lot of skill sets, willingness to learn, willingness to risk. And risk sometimes goes south. So why have a business? What attracted us to what we do, and why should you consider starting one? In today’s blog we are looking at our why, and hope we encourage you to find yours.
Over our 11 years in business there have been moments that pressed us out of measure, and we initially wondered why these challenges came along. There was not room for the why – but instead we needed to press on. But something interesting came of the challenge…. challenge brings growth…. and we pivot to adjust to the challenge. In the pivot came discovery…. and in discovery we improved our process, our product, and our outlook. The concept of silver linings speaks not just of a good outcome for what initially looked like an impossible challenge…. but it speaks of the mindset that is willing to look beyond the challenge and ask one question – how?
