It is with great pride that we announce that last week was the 3rd anniversary since our company was founded and the doors at South, Inc. opened for business! They say that time flies when you’re having fun, but WOW have the years flown by. Under our Marketing Manager, Hannah, and her leadership, our company has flourished into one of Nashville’s premier marketing firms and our projected client and office growth is something to celebrate. With our 4th office location opening in 2 weeks in Knoxville, TN, we cannot express the level of excitement we have at the direction our firm is heading. We asked Hannah to share with us 3 things that led to this 3 year milestone and her answers reminded us of what a quality leader we have heading our company.
One of the first things South, Inc. attributes our success is that we DON’T believe that what was done yesterday matters. There is only today and what is being done TODAY to be the best version of oneself is what will determine success. We had an epic year in 2015 complete with promotions, travel, recognition and overseeing the #1 office in the country for our client. Imagine if all we did in 2016 was reminisce on what was done the year before. Think we would surpass what we did last year? Run the top performing office in the U.S. again? Be in business in 2020 if we were stuck living in the highlights of the past? The answer is no. Because all that matters for tomorrow is what you’re doing today, not yesterday.
Another attribute to South, Inc.‘s 3 year anniversary to is that we focus on the big rocks first. No matter one’s model, every business is responsible to 2 parties; their employees and their customers/shareholders. Hannah learned from a very young business age, that nothing else is more important than providing a positive, vibrant and educational work environment for our team, who in turn translate that good energy when taking care of customers. It’s actually really simple, we feel! Take care of your people, and they’ll take care of your customers.
The last objective Hannah leads the South, Inc.team to focus on is self-improvement. She strives to motivate our office to be better citizens in the Nashville community, better parents, husbands, wives, business leaders, etc. Every week she proposes self-help business books, motivational videos, business articles, and travels to conferences nationally. The business our company is built off of is the idea that small improvements over an extended period of time, create strong managers. “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” Hannah quotes.
We wanted to take the time to thank each and every person who has made this 3rd anniversary milestone possible. Without the commitment and dedication of our incredibly talented team, we know for certain we wouldn’t be writing this blog today. As excited as we are, we know that our future is even brighter and that the best is yet to come. Follow us on Twitter for the latest company updates, awards and expansion and get ready for the biggest year yet because 4 year anniversary here we come!
