Let's Be Real Change & Growth is Tough and Kinda Scary

Let's Be Real Change & Growth Is Tough & Kinda Scary

So we have a pretty big construction project coming to a close here at the agency.  I know it seems like we just finished our last project well...because we did :). Ha!   Last year one tenant in our building moved out so we rearranged our current tenants around which opened up some space for us.  We spent time and money creating this new space and opening up areas that were once closed in.  We also now have two separate dedicated areas...a conference room and break room space.  See my past blogs for more info. 

 Even with this change it still left us with a vacancy.  After several months without any leads and lowering the price of the rent we decided we would take over the space.  In all honestly why didn't we think of this sooner #changeistough!  BIG step well HUGE step for us.  This would mean more expense and less rental income for the building and us. It would also mean that our sales team including Will would have their own space all together instead of being spread out in our current condition. 

This is just straight up rad for them.  I'm super stoked because I think being all together they can all work as a team.  It gives everyone easier access to their mentors as well!  They can listen and learn from one another and Will is right there not down the hall and farther away from them.  This new space also has room for us to grow and add additional sales staff.  That was something that worried me because I know what our 5 year plan is and so does Will and I wasn't sure where we would put people.  You can't have your sales team sitting on top of one another in a space that's too small.  It's just not cool!  

 So we put in a door from the break room into the new space with a pocket door and wide open spaces!  Seriously though as soon as we opened up this space I could feel the spirit of the Dixie Chicks "Wide Open Spaces" take hold as we walked into the new sales team space.  Will's office is just off that space with his own pocket door!  

 On a side note pocket doors is where it's at!  I love them!! They are such a great space saver and at least ours our beautiful.  They look amazing and then they tuck quietly away when we don't need them!  It's just flat out a major win for the remodel!  I think if I could I would have pocket doors everywhere!  Watch out regular doors the pocket doors are taking over. 

 Sorry about the tangent this space is super large so Chris Cook and Justin Madar now have more space to stretch out a bit more then what they had before in the back of the office. 

We for sure have everyone moved in and we still have to install some storage for Chris and Justin but for being less than a week into their new space I think we are doing pretty well :). If you're in the area come on over and stop in and see the redesigned spaces!  We'd love to have you!  #mllins
