As we’re gearing towards the end of April, I cannot be more than excited for what May will bring for the Wish Group. Not only will the warmer month be exciting, but I’m very excited about the growth we’re having at the company! Last week we had our Spring Leadership meeting and it was such an amazing experience.
I had a chance to learn about our new hires, share the financial growth we’re having, and share some inspirational stories that have helped me grow as an entrepreneur and CEO. Some of the best advice I’ve learned early on was” “don’t try to be all things to all people, because it basically means you are not very good at any one thing.” By following this rule, I focused on doing one thing and doing it well before deciding to become a serial entrepreneur.
It is nearly impossible for a business to grow without intelligent, talented people. That’s why it’s been my focus to hire people who are smarter and talented than I am in other areas. I’m always looking for ways to improve our culture, our benefits, and the reasons why employees would want to keep working for us. I believe that many companies forget that true loyalty comes when employees believe that the organization and its leadership team care about them as a person and professionally.
More importantly, when you love what you do it shows to the people surrounding you every day in the office. I’m passionate about my work and career and I try my best to display this every day. Unfortunatly, there is no guarantee for business success. It takes a combination of strategy and creative thinking to ensure that a brand or business is successful.
So as you embark on another work week, ask yourself what motivates you? What is your 5 year plan to be successful? Are you currently happy where you are in life and your career? If you’re unhappy, what are you willing to do to change that? Always remember to never focus on another person’s accomplishments or what they have. Focus on YOU, learn from the best, stay motivated, keep positive and YOU will be successful.
Don’t forget to keep your eye on the prize.
