This is my first attempt at blogging on this site. I think that it is important that we have a format to give information back to the public about what we do, what we believe and what we have committed ourselves to.
Unfortunately we don’t live in the day and age that our grandparents did, where a handshake and a man’s word were good enough for the biggest of deals. I think that now more than ever we have to strive professionally if not personally to make sure that we follow through on the things that we promise. There may not be hope for humanity over all, but there can be a restoration of people’s hope and confidence in you personally.
I don’t think we should ever take it lightly that in an economy like exists today, that someone entrusts you with their money to provide them a service. If someone puts that kind of trust in you, then it is our moral obligation to do everything if not more than we promised. I for one tend to be completely cynical about these things from time to time, and feel like “why should I care, no one else does”. But it is that one person that sees how much you care, and the amount of effort you are willing to pour into your business that may make all the difference.
In even the small things make sure that you have given it your all, don’t let one thing slip through the cracks that has your name attached to it that doesn’t portray the image of industry and personal excellence. And no, you may not be the best at what you do, and there may be people who can do what you do much better, but they can’t BE you and they can’t be a BETTER you so give it your all and let your best be the selling point!
