You Are Never Too Old To Learn

Karen Griffin - Tuesday, October 20, 2015

The one thing you must do in business is to continue learning.  I doesn't matter how old you are, there is always something new to learn, especially in the world of technology.

Learning to do these email newsletters, for example, has been a big thing over the ten years since I started Griffin Designs.  Today is the first time I have tried to include your name it - and I do hope that worked and my inbox isn't going to be deluged with complaints or remonstrations.

Nearly three years ago I realised I was sinking under the volume of work coming my way - a fortunate position to be sure, but one that was taking the pleasure out of working for myself.  Then I joined a mentoring group and realised that Griffin Designs was NOT a business.  It was just a job for me.  And I was introduced to learning and funding that helped the business grow.  You might have even met or spoken to my colleagues Lissie, Wendy and Paris.  Having regular help meant I could get on with the business of learning more about business.

So for the second year, I have signed onto a training programme, and thought I would share the information with you.  It would be great to see you enjoy the type of accelerated growth that Griffin Designs has. Feel free to mention my name as I think you might get a discount.

And the BIGGIE for me was developing FabriStick®, which sells on Amazon and is just gaining interest not only from large high street stores, but also from other businesses who want to collaborate - and I scarcely knew what this word even meant just two years ago, but now it really is the only word I use when thinking about business development.

You are one of our core customers and I will be forever grateful to you because, without customers there is no business. But without innovation, any business can become stagnant and credit for giving that learning has to lie with The Entrepreneurs Circle.

Recognition (to the right) by Manufacturing & Engineering Magazine of our product, taking the Small Business Manufacturing South of England feature in the September issue was a real buzz.   So thank you for sticking with us!

I got the vinyls on time and they were great! 
Thank you for your quick work, that was really appreciated!

Goodness knows what your workshop smells like, because these banners have rather an orange-y whiff to them now!
