Businesses and Non-Profits

I’ve written or edited materials for numerous businesses and non-profits. From crafting website blogs to revising marketing proposals, I can be trusted to eliminate overused words and phrases and fix awkward sentences so that they are not only clear but catch the reader’s eye.

I hear frequently from other business owners the same refrain – “Whenever leave/sell/retire from my company, I’m never going to have employees again!!”

I regularly attend legal training on the dangers of employees. I know the myriad of ways employees can sue me, or steal from me, or abuse other employees business , or do half a hundred horrible things to the reputation I’ve spent more than a decade to build.

And yet, there is a topic I haven’t heard addressed before and I’ll address it here – employees can absolutely break my heart.

One thing about running an IT company is employing a lot of young people. I regularly hire folks who can remember what was on the radio the day they became legally allowed to drink. (And even saying radio dates me because they were probably listening to a podcast or something).

I frequently hear the same refrain from business owners: “If I ever start another company,  the one thing I’ll never do again is have employees!”

I can sympathize with that viewpoint. I regularly attend seminars on the legal liabilities posed by employees—the myriad of ways they can sue, steal, or harass me or other employees, undoing in minutes the business reputation I’ve built over a decade.

But what I’ve never heard discussed is how employees can break your heart—in the best way. Let me explain what I mean.

One thing that is unavoidable when running an IT company is hiring young people—very young people. I regularly hire folks who have only been working one or two years—some fresh out of college.  These are employees for who legally buying their first beer is a recent memory. They’ve never had a landline, never used a VCR, and never experienced buying a Walkman (even saying Walkman dates me).

Pook’s attention to detail is matched by his ability to see the big picture. He’s an invaluable resource that we return to again and again.
