Today my morning started with a breakfast meeting at a local diner. Next week, my Monday will start with a coffee meeting at a local diner. It’s a tough life, but someone has to live it 🙂
I am very aware of the transition that is taking place. I am starting to get traction, to get my sea legs.
This morning we talked about sales, and setting up a culture of sales…how important it is for marketing and sales to walk hand-in-hand. We talked about how important it is to have someone at the head who knows sales and who has experience. We talked about so many things that were discussed in my former life–but never implemented.
Something that I was taught a LONG time ago is to start how you want to finish. Dress for the position that you want, not the position that you currently hold. And that is something that we are doing. We are setting things up so that, when we become a huge organization, the foundation is in place and we set everyone up for success.
This is an exciting season in my life. Tomorrow night I am sitting down with someone to start getting some things rolling that have been in the works for a while. I am very interested to see what transpires. I only see great things coming…
When I was going through the most difficult times, some wise person told me that the tough times make the good times sweeter. I thought it was a crock of crap. Until right now. Now I understand. I appreciate the tough times. But I’m not gonna lie. I am LOVING the good times.
