If you were to tell me 10 years ago when I turned my attention to running my own business, that I would still be doing it a decade later, I would have been happy and not surprised.
However, if you were to have explained, with the benefit of a crystal ball or a time machine, what strange things would occur across the face of our planet and impacting upon nations and people, that would have taken some digestion.
I guess I am extremely fortunate to still be in a position to do what I love to do, as so many others have fallen by the wayside. And there is usually a fairly high attrition rate for small businesses even at the best of times.
So, hopefully I have done some things well over 10 years, but in all honesty there has probably been a degree of good fortune as well. I remember the quote from Napoleon, ‘Don’t bring me a brilliant general, bring me a lucky one’. However, I like to think that I have used that luck to learn a lot and in turn be able to share that learning through working with others.
Here is to the next decade then.
