Tomorrow I officially step away from the firm that I created in 2013.
I created a cloud-based firm from scratch, grew it and then went through one of the toughest decisions of my life when I sold it late last year.
Since the acquisition I have been helping Equiom, the buyer, to transition things over, which officially comes to an end tomorrow.
It’s been an emotional year for me.
Saying goodbye to clients, the team and essentially the company that I helped grow with my blood, sweat and tears was not always easy over the past year, but it’s a decision that I am completely at peace with.
Working up to the decision to pull the trigger on the sale was incredibly hard as I was faced with many forks in the road, just like you when you operate your own business.
Many paths, many opportunities.
Which one do you take?
No matter how much analysis, it’s impossible to know. So that’s why my best piece of advice is to just jump, trust your gut and see where things take you.
My gut told me that it was time to move on and try new things. And that’s exactly what I’m doing with Future Firm.
Now, my full time job becomes helping you with your firm and to help you create a future-proof model that stands the test of time in the face of changing technology, changing client expectations a changing workforce.
So let’s go!
