It’s been a while since I’ve written a blog post for this website – more than four years! So where have I been for the past few years? I’ve taken a position with DEUTZ Corporation, where I started as Marketing Manager and now serve as Director of Marketing.
The past few years have been busy, enhancing brand recognition and helping to increase sales for a premier engine manufacturer – I can almost guarantee that you pass by a DEUTZ powered engine each time you pass a construction jobsite.
During my time at DEUTZ Corporation, we also successfully launched a series of DEUTZ Power Centers and Service Centers – which required the creation of a totally new brand, along with new logos, etc.
In all of the content we make available to the public, we highlight our people, because every business is a people business!
During the time I’ve been working for DEUTZ, I’ve kept FlexMarketing Solutions open, though not very active. We finished out a project for an author I began working with in late 2015, and I put together the concept for a project I hope to successfully kick off in 2020 – I believe that Project Uncharted will inspire and change lives for the better.
So why did I keep my business open during the last few years, when I really didn’t need to?
For me my business is a personal thing, just as your business concepts and dreams are personal to you.
If you’re like me, you’ve stayed awake late at night, trying to figure out how to successfully launch your personal brand, or business idea. I’ve spent many a night with my eyes wide open.
My business remains open, because I know you’re out there – entrepreneurs and small to mid-sized business owners, just waiting for the right boost (or maybe push), to take things to the next level – or even to just get started.
I’m taking on projects again, not out of boredom or necessity. I don’t need the additional work, but I want the feeling again of increased fulfillment by knowing that I’m taking on projects that will make a difference to others. It will make a difference for you, and the people you care about.
So recently, I’ve revised the FlexMarketing Solutions website, enhanced the Project Uncharted website, and anticipated the excitement that will come again, by working on some additional projects that matter to me – along with a job that I enjoy, at DEUTZ Corporation.
However, the FlexMarketing Solutions team and I are primed and ready for takeoff!
Several years ago, I wondered if I could keep the lights on and maintain a winning spirit, during the “Great Recession.” You may wonder about your own winning spirit, as you look to launch something that’s important to you.
In only two years of being in business for myself, I was able to pay myself a salary – much earlier than many who have launched their own ventures. If I can do it, you can too!
I’m ready to reach out again, and take on new projects at a limited pace – allowing you and I to stay focused on the success of your concept.
We know it’s personal for you. It’s personal for us too.
What are you waiting for? Let’s get started today!
