Celebrate Small Successes!

For those of you who have followed BOBEC Apps, you know the diverse background of our group and the struggles and triumphs we’ve encountered. Between a hectic work schedule, family commitments, and attending conferences, I found myself being bogged down with too many things on my plate. At the beginning of this entrepreneurial adventure, I was totally psyched but then became discouraged by the process and wondered if it’s all worth it.

One of my mentors, who has several startup companies, gave me some awesome advice…celebrate small successes! This philosophy is key because if you only look at the potential end result, you lose sight of how to get there. By taking things in stride and parsing boulders into rocks, we can easily identify our areas of improvement and capitalize on what is working well.

Over the past few months, the BOBEC team reorganized our structure and individuals are taking on responsibilities that play to their strengths. We have also attended several conferences and showcases, talked to potential investors, significantly increased our number of downloads, and have made great connections!

So, the bottom line is, BOBEC Apps is making gargantuan leaps to ensure that Hot or Cold is a hit. We are playing to our strengths and celebrating small successes. And although things are hard, this journey is definitely worth it! Join us!
