We are living in strange times.
Everything in the world seems to change in a way that none of us have ever witnessed before.
Undoubtedly, the Covid-19 pandemic has significantly transformed both our personal and professional life in many different ways. Therefore, we believe that there’s no better time than now to talk about change.
Change is inevitable
As a young and dynamic startup, we embrace change as an essential part of life.
Change, in our mind, brings about lots of opportunities to evolve and encourages us to improvise.
Yes it’s completely unpredictable, sometimes even scary to think about. But it doesn’t mean we cannot be ready to welcome changes.
Just like how quick someone could adapt to a new environment, we believe it’s all about changing your existing habits that makes things much simpler.
“I can’t change the direction of the wind,
but I can adjust my sails
to always reach my destination”
– Jimmy Dean-
We have no control over unfortunate events, but we do have total control over our decisions. Objective factors like changes shouldn’t be the obstacles to achieving our goals.
Take pride in what we’re building
People, culture, and quality products.
Working from home has become the new normal in the business world and we are no exception. We handle this change like a piece of cake with effective communication being the key. There’s no doubt that Ymesers are nothing but great listeners and doers. Flexible work style just suits us well.
While other businesses are built to simply make money, Ymese is built to last.
Money just happens to accompany us along the way. And we use money to build even better products.
As people shift from being outside a lot to staying home, online traffic has significantly been increased. There rises an opportunity for every business to seize.
Instead of waiting and being left behind, anticipating the effects of these changes will help you gain initiative in uncertain times.
What’s worth mentioning here is to have a risk management plan ready. It refers to better identify and analyze the potential risks in advance, and have a reaction plan. Since the very beginning of the business, our plan has always been “built to last”.
What makes it a great plan?
Imagine that you’re building your own house, you certainly want it to stand strong against any act of God as much as possible.
In order for it to last, you have to take lots of things into consideration. This makes you more considerate in laying every brick and establishing a firm foundation.
Now you get it, the foundation could be everything that could turn the tables. If you build your business knowing that it will fall someday, you’d better stop wasting your time and money!
The same practice is being seen at Ymese where we build awesome products from the ground up and invest in our builders who will survive difficult times. Change and its challenges has made us even stronger and tougher than ever.
If you’re building something with lots of consideration and care, there’s no reason to be scared of changes.
If you have not built to last yet, it’s time to change now!
