In the greater scheme of things…I am continuing to learn that life, career, and business is not about me, but who I serve. We cannot be successful/fulfilled until we realize it’s all about those we serve and assist. Providing a service is truly for the benefit of the client, yes I receive an income in doing so, but it’s truly about the clients need.
The other day I had an enlightening conversation with an older gentleman that I highly respect. I have known him for a very short time, we met at my part-time position. He has been a tax professional part-time for many years. He told me that he does what he does to serve others. He is always up, always smiling, and he said his job is not about him, but those that he serves. He is very involved in his church and serves in ALL aspects of his life.
I have seen the results of his years of service. He has been completing taxes for at least nine years. His clients return year after year to have them complete his taxes. As we all know, it is difficult to find someone we can completely trust when it comes to our taxes. They know he is going to be knowledgeable, honest, and most importantly a person of high integrity. I have spoken with his clients time after time that are willing to do whatever it takes to arrange their schedules to meet with him.
Soooo – who are you here to serve?
