MCC: Looking good. Actually, looking great!
As the first quarter of 2011 comes to a close, I look back with great satisfaction. January 2011 was MCC’s single greatest month in company history (in revenue). We set aggressive growth goals and are very close to achieving them - just waiting for some negotiations to close.
I believe that MCC’s Q2 will be terrific as well; possibly even more than Q1. Our pipeline is full, and opportunities seem to be cropping up everywhere. As the economy slowly begins to turn, our clients’ thoughts have turned back to furthering environmental agendas, and discovering new ways to make them more efficient on every level. As this happens, MCC is ready, perfectly positioned to be of service.
There are many challenges involved in running a recycling business, but it is a young, sustainable industry with plenty of room for growth in many directions. We are very excited to be in this business at this time, and feel fortunate for every opportunity coming our way.
MRR : Ahead of its time.
It was an exciting quarter at MRR/MyRecyclingReports.com. I have been working closely with my graphic designers and strategists on MRR’s spectacular marketing website. I am delighted with how it’s shaping up, and can’t wait until it goes live.
Creating MyRecyclingReports.com continues to be a refreshing and interesting experience. As of today, we are refining our Home Page and looking forward to filling in the inner pages. Everything has to be crafted perfectly to make sure it reaches the right audiences and motivates them to join us.
In developing MyRecyclingReports.com, I’ve come to realize that it’s way ahead of its time. It may take a while before the industry truly recognizes its enormous power, potential and value. However, good things come to those who wait – and to those whose products and services are outstanding…
…and we are in a good position on both scores. MyRecyclingReports.com represents a true revolution in our industry, and I am doing all the right things to let the marketplace know about it. I am confident that it will evolve not just into a remarkable industry tool, but into a sustainable business with steady growth!
Q1 Blog Goals: Lucky 5
One of my goals this quarter was to publish five blog posts. This is number five - Done!
MPM: My personal Q1
It was also a great quarter for me personally. This quarter, we welcomed a new salesperson at MCC, leaving me more time to take a more traditional top executive leadership role in my company. Along with this new role came new realizations. I was able to hone my Unique Ability(ies) – the activities at which I excel – and love doing the most.
I consider myself very fortunate, as I was born with the gift of auto-inspiration. I am driven to move forward every day. To constantly make progress. To innovate and see the future. I love to teach, speak, write, strategize, innovate, inspire, and assist. I love working with my staff, keeping them as excited about each day as I am. In sharing my experiences with them, I feel most gratified when I have succeeded in truly motivating them.
My Unique Ability(ies) shine in a public or group setting – not when I’m alone. Like a snowball, I need inertia and proper conditions in order to grow. When I work with my employees, my partner, my top vendors and my entrepreneur buddies, these talents really shine. The challenge? To work within my Unique Ability(ies) as much as possible, as I believe this is the path to happiness. I hope to discover more concrete ways to accomplish this during Q2.
I am always filled with new ideas stemming from my Unique Ability(ies). I am toying with new ideas - a speaking career, more frequent blog posts, a magazine column, a book, my entrepreneur support group or even a teaching job. Any of these would be absolute bliss not just for me, but for the mutually beneficial relationships and success stories that come to people I meet along the way.
Q2 on the Horizon
They tell me I’d better squint, ‘cause it’s ‘gonna’ be bright! Here's to a great second quarter. Cheers!
