Well what a rocket ride my new business has been since I started out in November last year. I can honestly say I have loved every single minute of it. I am so lucky to have some amazing customers and to be involved with some really exciting work.
You know when you have had the best day ever at work, when you are driving home and reflecting on the day and fist pumping in the air. “Yes!” “Get in!” “Come on!” That type of in-car moment and motivational chat with yourself. There have been so many of those that I may have been observed by my fellow Auckland motorists as a bit of a crazy man…but who cares – Get In!
So whats the biggest lesson learnt so far?
Customers are awesome – working with people on problems towards an agreed success goal is what it’s all about.
When I was an employee – sure this was the goal, but ever so often I used to get stuck in that wheel of why things couldn’t be done and faced with the barriers of the cant’s as opposed to those who wanted to find the how it could be done. I guess what I am saying is that we should never lose those fist pumping moments – even if we get bogged down with operational bureaucracy or barrier mentalities. Keep the faith and punch the air….
After all that what we all love about what we do isn’t it?
