By HRSS President, Karen Gregory
What a ride this year has been! HRSS (pronounced “hers”…I still love saying that) started out the year “rightsizing” our company after losing one of our largest contracts. Then we had to fight for 6 months to get paid for the completed work. The beginning of the year continued to be slow for business, but after attending a conference in Washington DC titled “Be the Change” I came back on fire! I got serious about strategizing and marketing, hired a business coach, launched our first-ever eCoaching program for professional businesses, teamed up with several new clients over the summer and fall, increased the number of return clientele, hired the best Operations Manager a girl could get, and then was blessed to be able to open the doors on a brick-n-mortar office space just a couple of months ago. It has been a ride…no doubt.
I can tell you not all days were good, but I do firmly believe everything happens for a reason! And that is the reason for the season — to give Thanks! I want to personally take the time to say Thank You. Seriously. Thank you to all of you who serve as our cheerleaders and champions. Thank you for your continued encouragement and support. It goes a long way. And Thank You to our clients for entrusting us with your business. We are very blessed and very grateful.
As a token of our appreciation, I wanted to ensure you are aware of the many FREE small business resources we provide our community here and abroad. We know the challenges, the hurdles, and the frustrations. But we also know the rewards, fulfillment, and freedom we get by doing what we do!
With warmest gratitude and appreciation, we thank you for your continued patronage.
