We just closed on the biggest project we have ever undertaken and this was not on purpose or planned. Things happen in business as in life that at first glance look like bad luck, bad news or an insurmountable obstacle that has just landed in your path. At 52, this still catches me off guard and can shake you to your core. But these things that at first glance appear to be a negative, are often the things you needed to challenge you and force you outside your comfort zone to grow and stretch is ways you never before thought possible.
That is what happened to us a week before Christmas 2022. After being given just 4 months to move and close our business from it's current location, to be candid, the drive home felt like the walls closing in. But this time with decades of these obstacles being put in my path and eventually overcome, I kept faith. I put my boots on and went to work trying to find a new location. Weeks went by with not a remotely close candidate for a building that would fill our needs, but still we kept looking and trying.
This past Thursday, on February the 23rd, just two short months to the day of this devastating news, we are now owners of our own manufacturing facility along with two new world class machines being delivered shortly. A building so perfect for all we do, that we could not have drawn it out any better from scratch. Not to mention, it is 1 mile from our home and up until January, we didn't even know it existed.
I want to share with you our story and to encourage all small businesses out there to keep the faith and keep moving forward. To look at obstacles not as hurdles you cannot get over, but as challenges that are put there to make you grow, stretch and mold you into the owner that must you become to handle the future that is ahead of you.
This has played out many times in my life and to this day, I often find myself looking up at the mountain way up high and wondering, is that even possible? Only to find myself weeks, months or years later on the other side. Keep the faith and know that these obstacles would not be put there if you were not ready to face them and know that what may seem impossible at first glance, are put there to take you to the next level.
