Today marks two important professional anniversaries for me.  I have been with Venture Mechanical for 5 years today.  That’s a huge deal considering my previous best for two years nine months.  It is almost a given that a person will need to change jobs a few times, especially early in their careers.  As you learn and grow, you get a better understanding of you likes and dislikes, strengths and weaknesses and it is natural to outgrow a position.  It is also one of the best ways to make significant leaps in terms of income.

We have officially been on our new accounting software for one full year.  The entire processes of research, converting and implementing took about a year and was one of the most challenging things I have done.  The first day we flipped the switch was stressful and the first few months of growing pains were difficult.  Constantly trying to reassure everyone that things were not blowing up, the output was accurate and not having that efficient “flow” were just a few of the things I battled.  Now, it is hard to remember what the old system was even like.

So here is to more success in the coming years.
