New Beginnings-Starting Up!

New Beginnings-Starting up!
Sorry for disappearing for a few days this past week!  I have been pretty tied up with a new and exciting adventure that I hope to be sharing with you as it progresses.  I have been presented, along with my wife, with the opportunity to run a business which has been in operation for quite a few years.  Things have been going pretty well for these many years, however there is a lot of room for improvement with a potential to grow which presents a wonderful challenge for the both of us.  It is sort fun to be faced with such a challenge and we are pretty excited and nervous as we are beginning to make the initial plans and will soon be operational.

In order to make the necessary progress there are a few changes that must take place.  For one, the personnel must be the right personnel and not just someone who is in need of a job.  They must be willing to make adjustments in order to go along with the standards that we are setting for the business, as well as be team players ready to make a few adjustments in order to turn things around.  So this means that some of the existing personnel will need to move on in order for the new to take hold.  It is never a pleasant matter when you have to let people go, but when you have people who have been there for many years and have “always done it that way”, they find it near impossible to accept a new way to operate and will become an obstacle to progress.

Choosing your team is one of the most important jobs that you have, as if your team is weak, you will be setting yourself up for failure. It really is not important the type of work you do, if your team members are not willing to work together, or they gossip and pull down the team spirit, they will be more of a problem than an asset and it is best to decide to part ways sooner rather than later.

So as you can see, I have been a bit busy lately and in need of making some important decisions.  I will keep you posted and look forward to having you back!
