I have learned starting a business is not easy. There are many things to put in order, many things to develop and many things to plan. One person would go crazy trying to do it all alone. That’s why building a team is one of the most important elements of starting a business. A team will help ensure the company’s growth and preserve its financial health. As the chief financial officer of 1st Advantage Business Solutions, I am faced with tough decisions every day. Starting a business in this economy is very challenging, but not impossible. With the right plan and the right people by your side, any business can triumph and profit in any type of economy. I am very fortunate and blessed to have such a great team working with me.
Our CEO Edson Pinzon, Administrative Assistant Elizabeth Pinzon, Social Media Specialist Julie McKibben, and our newest addition, Receptionist Vanessa Urbina are all important pillars to this corporation and each one of them helps me create a foundation that will not fail in the future or be compromised by any obstacles or challenges that small businesses normally encounter.
This month I want to thank my team, from the bottom of my heart, for being patient with me when I couldn’t give you full-time jobs and when we had to work from one small room in my house. Thank you for encouraging me with your hugs and words when I was stressed and overwhelmed; I really could not do this without you! Elizabeth, Julie and Vanessa, I want you to know that your talents, abilities, skills and work are greatly appreciated. To our CEO, Edson Pinzon, a special thank you for pouring all of yourself into the business in every way possible, for making sure I always get rest after working more than 80 hours a week and for making sure we always have enough funds to pay the bills.
Once again, thank you to my team and to all administrative professionals for your hard work and contributions to the success of small businesses across the nation, which stabilize the economy and provide jobs to hundreds of families. If we all keep this in mind and continue to work as a team, I believe the companies we work for will continue to grow and fortify our economical state as a country.
