Dec 7, 2007What does SearchMasters look like? What will it look like a year from now? I have been sitting on this article for several months. Since its now the end of the year, its an appropriate time to do some future gazing.
I am gathering some interesting quotes from others that I identify with:
I feel this way at times - Jim Westergren - Important Business Decision
What do you do in such a situation? Either you employ more staff that can deliver your service, grow your business or you change your business.
I am feeling the same joys of success. I am employing more staff, and now have James McFall and Harvey Kane here in Auckland, and Rafael in the Philippines. We are also sending work to SearchMaster SEO Certified Consultants.
We are starting to get bigger clients, with some corporate clients from Advertising agencies. My job is now changing to that of managing clients and supporting my staff.
I talked with Greg McNamara of GetItUpThere. He has grown large businesses, and is currently working for himself again. His advice was SLOW Growth. I certainly feel the growth issues. New staff take time to train and get up to speed. The business needs to ramp up to get the extra work required to keep them busy... I don't want to get too big too fast.
Heaps of fun. I am really enjoying the ride.
Another quote from Jim Westergren - New Jobs from clients never ending:
And then I thought, ok now no-one from Sweden will order with these new rates and I have time to complete all the open jobs from before.
But I still get orders and interest!
It is an interesting road that we walk, and certainly one that many others have trodden.
