Why am I doing this?
To start blogging about Employee Recognition and Business Development “NOW” seems crazy! I have 2 young kids at home, a busy career with Kudos inc., and numerous side projects to eat my time as is. The answer lies within 3 key reasons.
1) I feel the need to make available knowledge that I have and seem to repeat over and over to my pipeline, and client base.
2) I need a challenge. I see my Call of Duty ranking increasing faster than my Linkedin ranking, and as a Business Development professional, this is the wrong metric I should be seeing!
3) I want to engage with like minded professionals. My career will inevitably benefit through discourse, debate, and feedback from my peers. I have read many other blogs by industry professionals, and often learn the Good, Bad & Ugly from their perspectives.
This 2015 resolution, I’ll call it, is a way to validate and escalate myself through YOU the reader. I will work towards keeping to the point, and doing so in a way that doesn’t make you want to smack your head on your keyboard. I look forward to being challenged, questioned and affirmed as needed.
Therefore unlike my gym memberships of years gone by, I will do my best to stick to my 3 key reasons for doing this. If I begin to slip…I may just get a tattoo to remind me of them!
