Company Has a Face
DiscoverOurTown.com is like any other company, it has a face. This is my first post to a blog and I thought I should begin with the big picture. I work with DiscoverOurTown.com which is an Internet company, a city guide available on-line with a PC or with handheld devices, but the company like any other company is made up with people. These people look like other people, some older than others, some female and some male. We work with business partners, and consultants all the time. Paul Chaney, with Radiant Marketing and Sumi Helal with Phoneomena.com come to mind.
When we first meet someone in person, we have a chance to form an opinion about that individual. With an Internet company that personal touch seems lost. Yesterday one of the female employees had a blue outfit on and she looked like a spring flower. This is important because we are in a basement. Oh, we have two windows, but the office is in a basement (can't you just see it).
When I graduated from college, I went to see the richest man I knew personally. He gave me a book by Napolean Hill, Think and Grow Rich. The point I took from that book was to work WITH someone, not just FOR someone.
DiscoverOurTown.com and employees are like that. They work with each other as a team. We touch about 50,000 lives a day at DiscoverOurTown.com and I want people to see our face.
