The following is a transcript from the video above:
"In my previous company, they had sent me back. I got an MBA. So after getting the MBA, I kind of knew at some point that I wanted to do something. I didn’t know specifically what I wanted to do but I just kind of felt like it was either going to take me to a role of some sort of executive management or I wanted to start a company.I knew I wanted to stay in technology. I kind of knew that was a strong suit for me but what I didn’t want to do was take on all the issues that you have with a start-up business, like managing lots of employees, paying employees, figuring all those pieces out. That part was scary to me. I wanted to find something that was independent where I could be a business owner but where I didn’t necessarily have to take on all of that to start.Because I wanted to spend more time with my family. I wanted to spend more time with my kids. I wanted to be home. I didn't want those things to go away. So when I started looking for opportunities, truth be told, I found WSI almost immediately, probably not right of the bat but pretty soon after. I had kind of started looking at some opportunities. I had looked at other franchises, more traditional types. But when I found this I thought you know, this is the perfect fit.Some of the things that attracted me was:
So those are the pieces that rally attracted me to WSI from the start.
- I didn’t have to brand myself. I'd already have a built in brand. I'd already have all the pieces I knew I was already going to have to do, a website, a brand, a strategy and figuring out the path I was going to take. I knew I was going to be a successful business owner, I really did; with or without anybody I felt. But I felt this gave me an advantage that other people didn’t have right out of the bat.
- It took away all those fears that I had before. I don’t have to hire people. There’s production centers already in place. I don’t have to put graphic designers on staff because there already are graphic designers. So I could start small. I could work wherever I wanted to work and not have to worry about building an entire staff.
