It has been said that people are likened to creatures of habit. If this were true then those that can change their habits may be likened to creatures of change.
Life has various stages of change, similar to those of a business. When starting out, both are dependant upon the attention given to detail to thrive. The initial process may begin like many others, depending upon the health of your venture. However as the journey progresses, you may need to take another route from others before you, as growth and talent will dictate the route required to thrive. Don't fight the course of change, as long as you keep your Finish Goal in sight, then there is always more than one way to reach your destination. As your business and child grows, so should it's interests to keep stimulated. Although the business may have started out by needing your undivided attention, as it grows one must trust that it takes a village to raise a child, and so you must trust that your business can grow in a similar way. Look around you to see what knowledgeable people and trusted resources are available to allow your venture to bloom. Don't let your sights be blinded by the restraints of others. Look ahead to see where there is smooth sailing so that you can avoid the obvious hazards. Like the much pressured Titanic, when you allow your ego to rule your journey, you can run your business aground. Better to surround yourself with people who support your business, and with their best interests at heart being your venture, give it the guidance required to allow it to adapt it's journey , after all a journey shared has more to give it's audience.
A successful venture takes a community to support it. Acknowledge growth, seek support, link arms and go forth with confidence.

Recently I have had the pleasure of using my time away from the office to expand my work experience. This work experience is not like the type I would generally list on my CV. Instead it is the experience that I would discuss when asked what I do with my time ‘outside of work’. Working outside of a traditional office has enabled me to pull upon the resource of skills I have learnt through my Temping career, with the strengths learnt to me through great Managers, who I am fortunate shared an office space with me.
The roles I refer to are businesses where there is one Director with a few handpicked staff. These businesses require the same commitment to work and effort to meet their targets if not more than the corporates, as there is more to lose when you have little margin to err with. The tools these businesses equip you with are refreshingly simple, as are the demands. The tools are basic and adapted by the business to do the job effectively. The demands are to meet the customer’s orders in a timely manner and to a consistent, excellent standard. It is interesting that these roles require me to stoop to knee level to check the standard of work before standing high to present it to the Directors. The first few times, my knees and back ached as I was not used to using these muscles in this fashion over a duration of 3 – 4 hours. However, in order to fulfil the orders, I got on with the job and later was able to give attention to my muscles in the form of a jog after work. (I believe that when you use a muscle that is not strong, support it by giving it strength from other muscles that are). I am not one for rewarding a sore muscle with a holiday - get the holiday when you have worked up for the resistance for it.
I am delighted to now add these skills outside of the office to my work experience. I have not had to be pardoned from paid work to accomplish these new skills. I have stayed employed and contributed to both the businesses and to their customer’s demands. I have been able to give to these employers what they give to society – the satisfaction of providing great service. As with all successful ventures, the lesson is the same: To meet the customers standard’s you must understand the business’s market.
Recently I was interviewed for a role in which I was deemed well matched with experience, and which offered a lucrative income. I was advised the hours for this role would mean that I had little time to live outside of it. Should you allow one big business to take so much of you, the other bigger business that is You will receive only a little.

As a new employee, the door into a company may afford other options when first starting out in work. Whether self employed or you choose to work for an existing business, the order of the ways we experience these doors may be in the above order. How one manages to negotiate these doors may be learnt through hindsight, regardless of age.
The In Door is often the first contact you have with a company. You may be greeted by a receptionist, or an automated sign in. Either of these options generate an individual recording of you. The receptionist asks for your name and reason for visit and then alerts the according person to your arrival, or the automated machine will prompt you to enter your name and reason for visit, and alert the person upon your arrival. Either way, your first impression is being recorded. No matter how many times you use the In Door, treat each entrance with the same exuberance as if it were the first.
The Out Door is often the last contact you have with a company. You may be farewelled by security, staff or an automated sign off. When you use the Exit Door leave it like you want to come back in. This acknowledgement of using the In Door and the Out Door as if the two were associated is recognition that the correct respect of these doors can lead to an opening of the Both Ways Door.
The Both Ways Door is often the Door that many employees want access to however, through indifference use of the first two Doors, entry may be difficult or denied. This Door can give you access to the building regardless of your location on site. This is because your first impression through the In Door remained constant, with the last impression that was recorded at the Out Door. When you have used both the In Door and the Exit Door with this realisation then the Revolving Door will be presented to you.
The Revolving Door is to me, the most impressionable Door of all. When you are able to access a company using this Door, it is a respect earnt from both sides. As a company, your duty was to gather data about this prospective employee, and it was the prospective employees duty to provide the company with accurate, measurable data. Make each exit through the Out Door count so that the In Door is always welcoming to you and those that you work with. This will enable the Revolving Door to make itself appear.
As a Professional Temporary the Revolving Door is the Door that I work towards having access to.
