CHANGING THE WORLD ONE LETTER FLAP AT A TIME
Starting Letterbox4you was neither easy nor pain free. Starting any business is fraught with challenges, involves constant learning and the odd tumble – sometimes from high places. As the stakes get higher there are moments of doubt, moments when it looks impossible but a desire to succeed and a strong belief in your dreams keeps you going. In moments like these you realise that there is something else down deep inside of you which is like a lighthouse during the darkest night leading you to the safe harbour. What is it, you ask?
It’s the same thing which guided companies like Zappos, Netflix, Airbnb, and Apple from being humble start-ups to some of the most powerful and valuable businesses in the world. It’s the same thing which unified so many people in the past around an idea, dream or vison allowing them to achieve truly great things, very often succeeding against all odds.
There are some things that you learn; from your family, passed to you by your parents or grandparents. There are some others you learn from sport (basketball in my case), from successes and defeats in your private and business life. Things that make you strong and give you the tenacity to keep going when times get tough – your values. I truly believe that for our business to continue to grow and thrive, we need to harness the power of these qualities and embrace them – as an organisation and as individuals on the team. These values need to form part of our daily lives, our communications, our decisions and the service that we give our customers.
Strong values will build us a family. A family which is strong. A family which supports its members through the hard times and celebrates their wins. A family that creates a safe and inspiring environment for all to thrive and grow, both professionally and as individuals. Our core values are essential to this family.
Yes, all of them! Not just the ones you like. All the core values are vital and accepting them and living them daily is a key part of being a valuable member of our team. With our core values, not only will our business grow, but you will too.
Woodrow Wilson, the President of United States who lead the country during the First World War said to motivate his countrymen: “We cannot be separated in interest or divided in purpose. We stand together until the end.” I truly hope that our core values will resonate with you and you will stand together with us to take Letterbox4you on to greater success.
