Alvin Toffler is quoted as saying, “You’ve got to think about big things while you’re doing small things, so that all the small things go in the right direction.” But I must be honest; when I started working at a small electrical company, was I thinking about owning my own business someday? I can’t exactly say that I was. But I was certain that I had found my field.

In fact, it’s hard for me to imagine working in any other field other than the electrical field, but somebody asked me that the other day and it got me thinking. My first job was working at a local electrical company, and I later moved to doing sales for much larger companies in the same field. It’s funny, because I have ALWAYS worked in this trade, even if it was in an office on the administrative side of the business.

At one point in my life, I found myself doing PR and project management at a company I was working for. While I love being in the field, I thoroughly enjoyed working outside of the field as well. So, if I had to choose any position outside of working directly in the field, I would say that any managerial position would appeal to me most.

I think that being a manager gives one the opportunity to help guide others that may be starting out in the electrical world for the first time. This, to me, is just as important as making sure that the customers we work with are happy. A great team equals a great business, and every great team needs a strong leader.

Lucky me! I have the best of both worlds: I lead a terrific team and I can occasionally jump in the truck and work in the field. And working on those jobs is when I think about how all the small things going in the right direction work together toward something great.
