The Importance of your People

Posted on June 26, 2008. Filed under: Other |

We’ve been just a little bit busy lately.  The company is in full ramp, scaling rapidly, and our sales activity is intense.  Add three children ages four and under at home, and I haven’t had a lot of blogging time.  I had to take a moment today though to make a quick statement about the people we have on our team, and how important the people are to a business.

So far today we’ve had the joy of successfully practicing our business continuity plans in real life for our production system due to a corrupt SAN drive, we’ve had a customer flat out refuse to upgrade to our latest release because they won’t upgrade from IE 6 to IE7, we’ve had two power outages in our office due to lighting strikes, and we’re so busy on the sales side that I have recruited our Director of Support Services and our Controller to run a critical, last minute sales demo for a very large potential customer becuase everyone else is booked solid.  Through all of this, I’m only seeing smiles around the office.  I can’t say enough about the team we have, and the importance of the people to a any business — but especially one at this stage.  The attitude around here is pure “game on!”  I love it (and I really appreciate our people)!
