Over the course of the last few months I have been moving non-stop in an effort to get my initial entrepreneurial endeavor off the ground. It has been extremely gratifying to see something I have complete control over come together but at the same time it has been overwhelming. The one thing that has gotten me to the point where I am at now though (two clients and a good deal of freelance work) is my friends.
I can’t overstate the importance of reaching out to those friends you trust for advice, expertise, insight and an occasional kick in the pants as you begin a business. I consider myself an intelligent guy, but I know what I am really good at, and it’s the work I’ll be doing for this company – not the starting the company part.
Luckily I have a great group of friends I was able to look to when it came to choosing a business entity (Thanks, Bardin), getting my finances in order (Thanks, Theresa), designing a logo (Thanks, Ty) and searching for advice, insight and support (Thanks: Carrie, Mom, Dad, Dane, Mike, Ryal, Barbara, Lane, Will, Tom, Sean, Marshall, Kate, Ashlie and many others). You may not have even known what you said or did was helping me at the time – but it was.
I know this isn’t going to be easy. I know I’ll have to work twice as hard. I know 100% of my livelihood and finances are now in my own hands. I know and understand all of this and that’s why I started Final Piece Consulting.
I thrive in high stress situations and love working for and with people I know have strong ethics and at the end of the day want to offer a quality product or service.
I wanted to be my own boss and you all helped that dream become a reality.
