Over the course of the past few days I have been blogging a lot more. Definitely not about anything specific.
It’s been a very interesting past month for SDG. We have immersed ourselves in new ways of business. We have opened our ears more, listening to the customers and what their needs are; more than opening our mouths with an immediate plan of attack. We are willing to go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction, even if that means the late night, weekend, or work on vacation to make sure the job gets done.
My partner and I were talking the other day and we often discuss about life, ideas, business amongst many other things. But one thing that hit home was the realization of how hard work now will pay off in the future.
I bring up a story of a friend of mine who busted his ass for many many years, now he is able to live a more “free” lifestyle. I can look at my brother and how his business after ten years is now really starting to evolve and will certainly bring him that “free” lifestyle. Then my mother, her business is flourishing, even in a down economy. When I talk about “free lifestyle” I do not mean it as you will never work a day in your life again. But, at the very least, you can make the choice everyday to go in late, sleep in, or take off for the day on a random road trip just for the hell of it.
Why do I mention all this, because I’m tired of hearing people say that “their are no jobs and no money to be made” or “the economy sucks” etc.
Now is the time when you should be out building business, not worrying about how bad the economy may be doing. Granted, it may be more difficult to build business today than it was a few years ago, but their is still plenty of it to be had. You just have to find it.
That’s what we are doing everyday at SDG. Yes, it can sometimes be a slow journey, or take forever to close a new account but at least we have something to look forward to everyday.
Until Next Time, Cheers!
