Change

By now most of you know that the Chamber office has moved to a new location at 1835 County Road C West, Suite 22 Roseville, MN 55113. I was apprehensive about the move at first. I liked the old office. It had a great location (full disclosure, it was about 50 yards from Risdall’s front door) with lots of visibility because the Post Office was right next door.

But change is good. The new location also has great visibility being in a building with a clinic. The office space is an upgrade with private offices, a reception area and access to a full size kitchen area. All while cutting expenses in a MAJOR way.

Think about the changes that are going to be happening to you this year. Is it a promotion, a move, a new product or a new market? Your business HAS to change on a regular basis to stay relevant to keep existing clients and to gain new ones. Your personal skill set HAS to change on a regular basis for you to stay informed and to keep up with the latest technology.

Risdall recently changed to a new marketing and sales platform. To become certified on this new platform, it required you to watch 11 online training sessions, each about 45 minutes long.  Do the math. That is over eight hours of training in 45 minute chunks. At the end, you had to take a test that took another hour to complete and if you passed, then you were certified.

Pain in the butt, yes. Was it worth it, yes. This new marketing and sales platform will help Risdall better engage our clients and prospect and grow revenue as a result.

In case you were wondering, I did pass the test and I’m now certified. In fact, I had a bet with two others in the office on who would be the first to be certified.  I won the $50!

We all need to change to stay relevant. How are you going to change this year?
