So here's a thought experiment...
When I built up Ministry of Testing I knew within myself where my deficiencies and constraints lay. Instead of trying to fix those deficiencies, I chose to focus in on doing things that I thought I was good at, or at least I wanted to get good at.
In hindsight, this was probably critical to my success.
I was good at listening. At bringing people together. At connecting the dots. At understanding the change that was needed. At seeing sparks within people. I was on top of the industry and where it was going. I could spot trends and rode the waves. I was not scared to experiment, time, and time again.
I was and am definitely not good at other things, which I won't mention here only because I want this post to be about what we are good at. I will happily discuss my flaws elsewhere to anyone who is willing to listen. 🤣
So, let us try this together:
My hope is that as a community we can help each other out by suggesting ways of growing a business that focuses in on their strengths.
