Another factor is that this move will cement our team bond. Six of us have decided to relocate for this expansion and it was a big decision for everyone. We will be venturing into a new experience both personally and professionally. It has already brought us all very close together. The crew already has an invite to their first NJ Thanksgiving, courtesy of my mom. It's nice to know that your coworkers have your back no matter what and will be going through the same joys and challenges that comes with growing a company in a new market.
The driving forces for our company are meeting client demands, expanding our brand and preparing our staff to grow our organization by reaching their professional goals. The expansion team is getting a full dress rehearsal for what it will be like when they reach their goals and branch off into overseeing their own branch office. This is an amazing opportunity to see first hand the amount of work and reward that comes from intense planning and goal setting. It will also make it that much easier for them when that day comes!
At the end of the day the more you challenge yourself and push yourself out of your comfort zone, the more your grow as a person. Also tomorrow is my birthday, just thought I'd throw that in there :)
