A message from the owner...
Have you watched the movie “Office Space”? When it came out I was living that very life: writing code for a broken company, reporting to clueless seniors, and riding a crazy train of a company on a path to no-where. Like our hero Peter Gibbons, I had to ask: “What if we’re still doing this when we’re 50?”.
I’ve been blessed. I left the corporate world, became self-employed, and never looked back. And you know, really, there ARE times when it feels good to be a gangsta. But what the movie is missing is big: gaining self-sufficiency and building such a career is very difficult and many people simply don’t have the luxury of doing it. I got lucky.
However I haven’t forgotten where I came from and the indifference of the uncaring corporate world still burns in me as an injustice that needs to be corrected. So I have made it my mission that the day they are shoveling dirt onto my casket it will be said: “he worked hard to make a difference – to make things better for others”. Maybe all they’ll say is “he tried” – but even that would be worth it.
We haven’t solved everything but we come to work everyday determined to make things better. I have always said that I never want my employees to leave but if they do, upon reflection, they will always say “he helped me be better”.
Churchill said: “To each there comes in their lifetime a special moment when they are figuratively tapped on the shoulder and offered the chance to do a very special thing, unique to them and fitted to their talents. What a tragedy if that moment finds them unprepared or unqualified for that which could have been their finest hour.”
What will be your finest hour?
