We know as a manufacturer we are meant to say
All is going well, that life is great and we are having our best year ever.
I am sure for many, like me, it becomes very “Oleg-like”. You know who Oleg is if you use Linkedin frequently. Oleg has more inspirational moments happen to him every day than people getting murdered wherever Mrs. Marple or Jessica Fletcher went!
Well, in this case, I am glad to say that this year, has again, been the best year ever for Object Matrix for many reasons. It has been “bendigedig” (Fantastic!), as we say in Wales :
1. We beat our “stretch targets” (that one just for you Mr. Andrews 😉 ). The great thing about that is that we beat our targets! The not so great thing for a sales person is that the next morning (Dec 1st) the clock started again to meet an even bigger goal!
There is no off season for sales professionals!
A post coming in 2018 on that topic but for now we are very happy to have closed off a super year with a 3rd straight year of profitability and a growing, amazing, customer community.
2. We are learning to celebrate success. It is very British, and even more, Welsh, to be humble about our achievements. When customers say
“Hey man you guys rock.”
our response is typically to drop our heads slightly, go a little bit red in the cheeks and mumble
“Yeah we’re alright”. No longer! Yay us!.
