Well, I'm a little over a week into our new adventure. Last Friday I quit my comfortable job at a Health Care provider in our town. I'd been with the company for 5 years and had held many positions with them. Business Development, Health Care Liaison, VP of Business Development and back to Health Care Liaison. You see, 5 years in a company proved valuable in so many areas. It taught me organization techniques, how to go above and beyond for the customer, the right way to manage (and the wrong way to manage). But, most of all, it taught me how big of a desire it was of mine to run our own business. That is why I stopped working for the Man and ventured out on our own.
My wife and I have had this desire to build something greater than ourselves. Maybe thats why each home we renovate and sell off is our way of building something that can last long after we are alive. We put blood, sweat and tears into something that we immediately turn around and sell for others enjoyment. Call it sick and twisted, but we find this most gratifying. Because of our conservative lifestyle and modest living, we were at a position we could financially back away from a secure paycheck to pursue a greater purpose.
Now that we are able to dedicate more time to the pursuit, we are able to provide more content, projects, and updates on our company each day. We feel this is what you the people deserve. We can renovate more homes in a year than we could if we did this half-time and after all, a wise man named Ron Swanson said, "Never half-ass two things, whole ass one thing." This couldn't be more true. So, as of Monday of July 24th, we've officially whole assed The Heartland Concept.
Keep a look out for more blogs, posts and of course projects coming soon!
