What happens when you realise your path is entrepreneurship rather than employment? Lindsay takes up the challenge and shares an account of her journey as it unfolds…
I feel enlightened. I feel foolish. I feel grateful. I feel stubborn.
It’s been three years since I started pioneering Mirror Mirror. If you’ve been following this blog and have felt the cloud of failure looming over my head, I don’t blame you. But I do not see it myself.
Earlier this year, one person – a senior consultant connected in with the pharmaceuticals industry – asked if we were ready to run Mirror Mirror with multiple teams, dozens of teams, simultaneously. I said yes, knowing we would really have to scramble if that was the case.
If such an opportunity came up, our delivery would need to be at the highest level of quality to gain client endorsement, so I made a big decision. I decided to invest in a professional level software upgrade that I’d been holding off for some time because of the cost.
Chicken and egg. You can’t deliver until you have the right capability, yet you don’t want to invest in developing capability unless you have the demand.
