"Trust me I'm not running for office. However, I am for the people and providing an exceptional product...."
Earlier this week my family and I celebrated 4 years of business. It was different than the previous years as the celebration was subdued and consisted of a conversation between us. I had to remind my 5 year that he was certainly a part of the business as his smiling face has propelled us in more ways than he'll never know. "Happy birthday PBD!" Then he ran off to play.
As I look back, I never thought I'd be in such a position to affect lives by creating memorable media. The wheels keep on turning. Our first term is up and the same questions arise to challenge the current processes. What worked well? How do we improve? What needs to go? I have family members that have spoken about our involvement in the community and say "When are you running for something?" Trust me I'm not running for office. However, I am for the people and providing an exceptional product to propel businesses and families to cherish.
So what has the first 4 years taught me?
- Good & bad days will happen
- Relationships are key - genuinely network early and often as much as possible
- Don't make a decision in haste, but don't be afraid to take risks (oh the balance)
- CREATE something the market isn't providing - it will propel you to stand out
- If you bomb, pivot...
So with that, I'm on Day 4 of my first 100 days. I've already checked a few boxes on the to-do list, but there's more coming. It is the hope of PBD to inspire, uplift, and create for your business and your family. Don't count us out yet, we're just getting started. Stay tuned.
