Taking Responsibility by DJ Wimberly
(Jan 20,2020 Atlanta, GA) One of the greatest leaps of faith I’ve taken in my life was my decision to become an entrepreneur and start my own line of successful businesses. There’s no greater thrill than becoming your own boss and setting the course you want to take in life.
Instead of waking up everyday to make someone else money, you get the satisfaction of knowing that every dollar you earn is supporting your bottom line and building you financial future.
But don’t be deceived, running a business is not for the faint of heart. It comes with a heavy responsibility. While business owners gets to reap all of the rewards, they also have to carry all of the burden.
By any measure, Wimberly Media Group has been wildly successful. But running my businesses has never been easy. I’ve spoken about the past challenges we faced as a company – how we became the victim of our own success. As the leader of my organization I had to step up and own our shortcomings. I had to take full responsibility. And I did.
How is this done? The first step is recognizing there’s a problem. Next, it is vitally important to communicate these issues to your clients. Finally and most importantly, you must provide a solution to successfully rectify the problem. Customers understand that in business issues will arise from time to time. But, customers also expect for businesses to be honest and upfront, communicate with them, and accept responsibility.
In our personal lives, taking responsibility is a sign of maturity and growth. It is no different in the world of business. When companies step up and learn from their mistakes, their whole business benefits in the long run. Taking responsibility results in happier clients and greater revenue for the company.
Yes as an entrepreneur, I’ve experienced the highs and the lows, and accepted the good with the bad. I’ve learned a great deal over the years and I’m excited for what’s in store for the future.
I invite you on this journey with me as we relaunch – Wimberly Media Group!
