Today is the day we recognize Mavidea’s 15th anniversary (I think we figured out one time it was technically the 4th or something).
Maybe I’m just getting old and nostalgic but I’ve had the opportunity to share a few of the Mavidea stories from over the years in the last few months.
All the stories have something in common – they were moments when we decided the kind of company we were going to be.
We were going to make sure the employees got paid even if the owners didn’t.
We were going to drop everything and drive a hurting employee to the emergency room.
We were going to keep pushing even though it all seems dark, we were out of money and it sure didn’t feel like things were going to change.
We were going to be transparent with staff and share our plans, financials and other business details so that we could all be in it together.
We were going to put people first.
Over time we became Mavidea (and now Maxlider, Technocentra, etc.). We turned into a company that made it to 15 years. We survived the Great Recession, COVID and Erik in a too tight bunny suit. We survived losing our biggest client, losing staff and partners that left.
All through God’s grace and mercy. As the years rack up, I’m more and more thankful for God’s blessings. I feel lucky to be a part of the story that He is telling through our business. ALL of the stories point to Him. Not to the owners, the staff, our brilliant decisions, the technology, the strategy, or any of the other important pieces to the puzzle.
Thanks to all of you who receive this email – even if you don’t work at Mavidea – you’ve been a part of the story. You’ll be part of the future story. The part where it gets really good. The part where we change and grow into something even more amazing.
Make it a great day.
