Yes, I will do an anniversary Blog every year simply because every year I pinch myself and think 3 things!
- Where on earth did the time go?!
- How does this biz go from strength the strength?
- Thank god EOFY is over and done with, Happy NEW FY & Happy Birthday TMA!
Oh, then I answer the 2nd question and realise it’s from nothing but HARD WORK and some persevering through some pretty trying times.
I’ll try and keep it short & not too soppy.
Truly though, before I started TMA I honestly, wasn’t even certain if it’d gain the momentum (read clients) that we needed to survive, and then at certain stages over the past year I’ve stopped and asked myself “Where are these clients coming from.”?
The answer to that is essentially, Word of Mouth, and I love that. I like it a lot, so much so that I think I blog and do Social Media to share as much of my knowledge as I can and it’s not so much about marketing.
Second to Word of Mouth, a lot of people find me on Google now when simply searching for a Property Manager. Thanks to my amazing clients I have so many reviews that I simply get floored by.
What I know now that I didn’t know back then was that being a business owner is a tough gig, its hours can seem endless at times. You put in so much time and effort and you really do sacrifice your personal life for a time. You give up mini-breaks, beach days & social events a lot of the time. Oh if you do Mini Break your laptop is just that, in your lap, in the car on the way to said break.
But hey, it’s all worth it in the end. We’re working towards building something for the future, a service that is honest, trustworthy, and real. The other positive is that TMA provides greater freedom. The freedom to choose what we do, when we do it, and how we do it.
So, 3 Years in! Where are we going next? I don’t know. Does anyone know the future nowadays?
I just know our goals;
- Continue growing, always organically, sustainably and selectively
- Keep providing our Current clients & tenants the service that they want & expect
- Share what we know and continue to learn as we go
We, my side kick Nelson & I, love this craziness. We love the running around, the stopping for lunch & coffees & the OH MY GOD moments we have often. We also love the dinners out when we’re too shattered to cook which happens a lot!
Thank you to everyone who supports, follows and spreads the word.
So grateful, beyond measure, for the love & support.
