Today is 24th March. Probably doesn’t mean much to most people who read this – unless they have a birthday, anniversary or something else that prompts them to think of this day. For me it’s the anniversary of the day I registered my business in Melbourne, Australia – on National Secretaries Day 1994. 12 years ago!
Each year I think I really should do something to celebrate the day, make it special in some way, and each year it sneaks up on me – probably because I’m always busy doing something. I guess what better way to celebrate than to work for the clients I spent time dreaming about all those years ago?
To all those who are just starting out in business, or have been operating only a short time, may I encourage you to dream of what it will be like for you when your business reaches 12 years of age. Will you still be doing what you are today? Will your business look different to what you thought it might? Mine does! But then I didn’t know the Internet was about to transform the world with its entry into the business arena.
Be prepared to dream and plan but be flexible because you do not know what changes might take place that could propel you forward but in a different direction. It can be quite an exciting adventure! KMT
