Maybe my perspective is a little off being a younger “millenial” but I often wonder how I can make this more than just a workplace. I dream of a shop that is fun to work at. I dream of a work place that holds more than just coworkers. I dream of a workplace that has “family” working together. Can it be done and still progress and compete in the corporate world? I don’t know.
I’m just a guy with a vision and dream. Whether or not this stuff is possible remains to be seen.
Like any growing organization, we struggle with relationships between coworkers. Being the boss and a people pleaser, I’m learning that I cannot always do both. I must be willing to make the hard decisions. I must be the leader. It’s not always fun, but as any entrepreneur knows, the learning must never end.
