Time to get back into blogging. I stopped a while ago and the reason was two-fold. As I was leaving my job at Kentor AB I wanted to avoid any concerns with what I wrote while my three month long two week notice played out. The other reason was that once I had left life got really busy both with work for my client as well as with the new adventure I had departed on.
The new adventure is to bring the Miracle brand to Sweden. I will try to build up an Oracle database focused team here in Stockholm based on the success Miracle A/S has had in Denmark. Yes it is equally exciting as it is scary for someone who has lived their life in medium to large scale consulting practices.
However, I have always had a big admiration for the guys who started Miracle and what they have achieved. Getting a chance to bring the same style and quality to my home market of Stockolm and Sweden was just an offer that was too good to pass up. That is the kind of opportunities most of us will only get once or twice in a career. This one came at a time where it was close enough to work with everything else that was going on. The one thing that may not be optimal is having a new house built at the same time. Actually, that makes it completely not optimal. But the phrase I keep repeating to others that are thinking about when the best time to get started is “There is no time such as the present”, so I took my own advice for once.
So now the work is on getting the Oracle practice going, or rather it is going it just needs a few more legs. And with legs I mean consultants.
Next is however partying with our colleagues down in Copenhagen close to the headquarters. Tomorrow evening is when the Christmas party kicks off. Who knows when it will end. :-)
This blog will soon return to a more technical program. thought probably with some posts on interesting things with starting up a company. I’m sure the next year will teach us a lot of things on how to do that.
About that, this hiring business… When is the best time to add more people to a small company and how do we manage risk? Well… ehhh… Yeah… That’s right there is no best time, but there is no time such as the present.
