I am Natasha Mohan, a mother of 2 kids (a girl and boy), the wife of a decent guy, a daughter of an awesome mom, a daughter in law (of a great woman), a sister, an aunt (to some 20 nieces and nephews) and a now an entrepreneur with a team of 4.
My journey as a business owner started when I opened WorkSocial in January 2016. WorkSocial is a coworking and shared office space in Jersey City, New Jersey.
I was returning to Corporate America after a 15 year break. My job of being a mother and wife changed was going to change. My daughter went away to school and my son was middle school. With a little time on my hands I decided to pursue something that was not exactly my dream but it was a good place start.
Getting through 2 years
The choices I made with my team in the first 2 years was that we would focus only excellent client service. Charge a fair fee and on focus on 10X Value to our clients. The formula seemed to work, we sold out in a few months. Things were great. In expansion mode things were fast paced and we needed to adapt to market and client needs.
We made some choices along the way I need to rethink today. So I am journaling it for my own benefit and the benefit of my teams.
Year 3: Our goal is to achieve exponential growth in 2018. But it will not be through the standard means. We are going to adopt the manifesto of the generosity and abundance.
Service: Our growth will determined by how many people we serve and how well we serve. Appearances can be deceiving. In fact, they almost always are! So to take the guesswork out of our business and operations we will act in total transparency wit our teams.
2018 Commitment: Our growth in 2018 will be derived purely by creating exponential growth for all our clients.
2 Simple questions will drive our growth:
In other words we will always exceed people’s expectations.
In the next few days we will work on defining our influence, authenticity and receptivity will define us in 2018..
More to come
Thank you to my team:
