With GeoMetrick Enterprises turning 23, this month, there would be a lot more thank yous due if I hadn’t done some, along the way, but there’s always room for more.

Lots to Thank

Whenever we use the word “lot” I try to ask “what kind of lot” and, just to be clear, this is not a “material” lot but “lot” as in “a great deal of” as in “lots of chocolate” not as the lot number someone like Cadbury but as in massive amounts for the end-user (I mean me).

Now that I’ve made my definition, I just want to say that, in any business, there are many people to thank, whether you realize it or not. I try to thank people along the way and I hope I haven’t missed anyone or left anyone feeling left out in that.

First of all, when you have a business, you have to thank your family, who get dragged-into it even if they’re not in your office. There are all the customers you have, along the way. There are the people who make referrals of business. And there are a multitude of people who stop what they’re doing and take time out of their day to give each of us assistance.

Why I’m Breaking From the Week’s Topic

In my last post, I wrote that I would spend the week focusing on what GeoMetrick Enterprises has done for customers and projects I’ve worked on. Meanwhile, I “ran into” (virtually-speaking, that is) someone who had done a lot to help me with my business and I realized that it’s probably more important to take a moment to thank people, first.

Some people will joke (some are actually serious, though) that anyone who is unemployed calls themself a consultant. It’s due to all the people who are willing to do business with me and refer business to me who keep me from just being one of the masses of unemployed people who call themself a consultant and actually being able to BE a consultant. So, I appreciate all who help me maintain my employment.
