I Work for You



A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog about mean old master sergeants. How we are really there to help guide younger troops into their roles in the service. We protect them as they learn the ins and outs and become rooted in their new jobs. Companies have their own ways and traditions. And as you are hired by a company, you will learn their courtesies and ways.

My own company gives me the leeway to work with each client as an individual and not just part of a mass. Also, I work for you which means I need to be on top of my game. My game is to help you make the transition from where you are to where you want to be. I have made these transitions a lot throughout the years, and I have learned the hard way what works and what does not.

I know that I cannot do this for you. I am like the cheerleader, who can tell you how, point the way, and give you encouragement. This is something that we find lacking in these days of individuality, and communications which seems more and more to be done through and with electronic devices rather than people.

I’m not sure if you have got the focus yet, right now it is I, helping you do. This means we will work this together. Me cheering you on and pointing out possible ways, and you making your dreams come true.

Most companies do this on a single plan and a formula which is the same for everyone and may even match many of the needs of some people. My concern is that you are not a population, you are a person. And each person is an individual with unique and different characteristics from other people and individuals. This means for you to be truly successful you will work to a plan we will tailor together. Tailoring training, counseling, and helping each individual makes my work much more interesting. I believe in working for the individual.

I am building my company to work with you on your terms. Working with you, with the methods that help you best. Whether we are talking one-on-one, group sharing, individual study or other ways, all these can be offered.

For now, I just want to thank you for reading this.  If you would like to comment or learn more, please use the comment area.

Thank you for being with me today.  I hope to be with you again tomorrow.

A retired Air Force Master Sergeant, Mike used to lay in bed at night and worry about what would happen if his plant closed or found himself without a job. One day his plant closed. Rather than panic and hysteria (OK, maybe a little) Mike found himself carried away on the adventure of his life. Mike started with the best job he ever had working at Home Depot. He spent 8 years working with job seekers at a local workforce center, helping them to find employment. He then started his own company developing courses, writing books and urging others to follow their own paths into the future. Mike holds a Master of Arts in Adult Education and Training and a Bachelor of Business Management, earned through the University of Phoenix and an AAS degree in Electronics Systems Technology from the Community College of the Air Force. Mike is a member of the Delta Mu Delta Business Honor Society.
