Why I took the plunge and started my own business

Why I took the plunge and started my own business.

Passion, obsession, drive, experience, and opportunity. These are the things that made me want, even need, to start something new. When the opportunity arose to start something with a great partner that has drive, work ethic, and skills that complement my own, it was an opportunity that couldn't be passed up. A few of these ideas really stand out as the heart of why I made the leap.

Passion

A burning passion for a better experience. A better experience, not for me, but for the customer. I knew there had to be a better way. A way to put the customer first. A way to do a better job. A way to build long-term relationships based on honesty, integrity, great service, and professional results. A service that's not based on getting the job, getting paid, and moving on, but a deeper desire to actually help! From all the research I've done, one thing always seems to ring true for every successful entrepreneur: they have passion. Passion in their product or service. Passion for the customer. Passion to be better.

Obsession

I'm a self-proclaimed (and often confirmed) nerd. I love technology. I'm obsessed with staying up to date with all the new technologies. I enjoy finding solutions to business' problems utilizing technology. Integrating multiple systems to create a seamless and effective solution is my goal. I thrive on challenges and am obsessed with overcoming them. A healthy obsession is a prerequisite for anyone wanting to start their own business.

Opportunity

I'd still be grinding away right now. I'd be wishing and wondering, but not acting on the desire to make a change if the right opportunity had presented itself. This opportunity arose, as many do, in the most unexpected way. Thoughts of doing my own thing had been dancing in my head for over a year. I wasn't sure what to do about it. I was afraid of making a change, taking that leap to entrepreneurship. The uncertainty was crippling.

Then a respected co-worker, unprompted by me, mentioned she was having these same thoughts! Really!? I thought I was alone, even crazy, in my thinking that there was a need that was unfulfilled in this area. We bounced ideas off each other and to my amazement found that we had the same passions. The passion for better customer experience. The passion for better projects that focus on the customer. The passion to help! This was it, this was the opportunity of a lifetime. I couldn't pass this up. She has strong skills in areas I feel weak. She is driven to succeed and always does what it takes to go the extra mile. With this newly found partnership Team Tech was born.
