My path to greatness.
Am I there? No way. I know I have many more trials and tribulations in my business. I know I have not come to the “promise land” in my business. I still learn more and more about myself and how to better my business, every day.
What is my role within the company? It is ever changing. As the founder, my role has always been at the top. But the last year or two I have realized that I cannot do it alone. I need to empower and grow those within the organization.
What a wild ride. The first 10 years of the past 20 years in business, I spent alone. Serving my clients as an individual. Then I spent years 10 through 16 focusing mainly on a few key clients letting every other client, fall by the wayside. I helped those key clients, grow and succeed. I forgot about my business. Then the last 4 years have been about growth. About giving back more. About creating a legacy. A business that can survive without me.
There yet? I am still not there. I still feel like I need to be in the trenches everyday. I have some good employees but they aren’t me. They aren’t passionate about MY business yet. I think it is my problem. I need to take away the thoughts that this is MY business. It is OUR business. Mine, my employees and my clients.
My passion is to serve. To better my clients and their businesses. To better my employees. To create a business with Greatness. Not my business but our business.
I am on my way to greatness, with a help.
