About six months ago, I came to the realization that my company was not a small business anymore that I could work for and in much longer. We have grown from a four employee operation with one department, to twenty-six employees and five departments.
My stress level was high and my energy level was probably at its lowest point. Days were up and down, but fortunate for me, I knew I could not give up. Berith is the Hebrew word for covenant, which means that my partner Ray and I made a covenant with God that we would conduct every business matter with honest and integrity no matter what the circumstances were. We are not perfect but we can honestly say we have done that.
The problem was I needed help. I do not have the appropriate tools in place to provide focus and control over what the company had grown into. When Paul came into my office, I was not exactly sure what to expect. He asked a lot of questions and it turned out to be the right questions.
By the next day, Paul knew exactly where my problems were. He knew exactly what needed to be done if I was willing to move forward. Now looking back, it was an answered prayer. Bill has been a true gentleman and a joy to work with.
All of your staff has been very professional. Bill has worked hard to build the necessary tools we need. All of the value enhancements worked real well plugging in each employee to help them perform the tasks needed to make our system work. All of the value practices are exactly what I needed.
I can see what each class is doing on any given month. I can figure overhead, breakeven, and effective labor rates. Bill set up an operating budget which will be of great help in the future as we move our fabrication shop next door into a different facility. Bill especially worked well with our financial secretaries.
We now have a cash management tool in place with a better way to track payables and receivables. Something pretty high on my list was an incentive plan that would enhance our productivity. It looks like Bill and your staff has come up with something that will work. We will start it up March 1.
I shared it with all of our employees this morning and it looks like everybody is on board.
I know the journey is not over and I have a lot of hard work ahead. I am ready for it and now have a system in place that will benefit all of us and help me be a better steward of what God has given me.
