A PERSONAL ANECDOTE
I’m not an academic – I’ll be the first to admit that. However, I’ve always been interested in how businesses grow. Naturally, I enrolled in a university. I struggled for two years. I didn’t have a focus or an idea of what I wanted to specialize in. Was it sales, marketing, PR?
It wasn’t clear to me.
In 2006, I was on the court playing basketball with a friend who had just got a gig with a company called 1-800-GOT-JUNK? It was a medium-sized business based in Vancouver that grew quickly from a $1000 investment and into a $150 million dollar international company (today’s revenue being $250 million+).
I was intrigued.
They had grown into an entrepreneurial success story – and had recently won The Best Workplace in Canada award.
I hurried home and began to study the company. I was glued to the screen – learning as much as I could about what made it a success. I was confident that I could learn more from this company than from any lecture at my university. I was hooked – and wanted to understand what it really took to grow a business so quickly and with this sort of success. I sent off my resume and waited. Now, came the difficult part – breaking the news to my traditional South American parents. It was time to call it quits with school and work for a company that hauls junk. I knew I was too old to be spanked with a wooden spoon, but I got an earful for what felt like an eternity. The conversations weren’t easy – but my parents began to buy into my idea.
Now, I just needed to secure this job.
