Becoming A Business Person
I never wanted to become a business person.
When I was younger, when I was really young, I wanted to become a doctor. I wanted to work in medicine as an assistant and things of that nature.
But then, when I started being a bit more conscious and aware of the things I like, I realised I really like engineering. I like technology. As much as I like building things.
And so I started doing that. I started working as an engineer on various projects when I was 13. And I started working on more and more complex projects.
Then I had some issues with migraines. I realized I was thinking too much about all of the different problems that I had to solve as an engineer. And they were provoking me migraines.
And so I needed to shift gears into something that I felt was infinitely easier, which was sales.
How I became a business person
I started doing sales when I was around 18. And then I kept doing various degrees of sales or marketing for the next few years, working in various other companies and multinationals in Europe and in Asia.
And after working for a few of them and always hitting my goals and exceeding my targets, I realized that the companies didn’t really care about me.
They didn’t respect me as an individual. They weren’t treating me as an equal or as someone with a voice in the company and so on and so forth.
Oh, and the other companies also, to some degree, I felt weren’t ethical. And some of them just simply weren’t making the world a better place.
So, their main KPI was money and making more money and growing the business and so on and so forth. However without serious regard for their employees or their clients.
And I didn’t like that. So after many bad experiences in various different companies, I said that I’m going to start my own business.
I wanted to show the world that you could do business in an ethical way and still make money.
Businesses should be ethical
I almost started a nonprofit, because I didn’t want to make any money – I just wanted to work and to make the world a better place.
And then at the last minute, I decided to make a for profit, a real company, because I wanted to be an example.
I realized that it’s better to be a corporation. So that’s when I funded Wesrom Corporation. At the same time, it is a for profit entity with a nonprofit heart.
Yes, we are a corporation. Yes, we ask to be paid for all of our work, but at the same time we treat all of our employees fairly. We respect them. We are patient with them. And we give them opportunities to grow.
And at the same time we treat our clients fairly. We’re always ethical, we always deliver on our promises, and so on and so forth. And then we’re together with employees and clients.
We’re making the world a better place one project at a time, one person at a time.
And since the first business, I realized that I can help multiple other businesses to grow more, to be more ethical, to give more back, to create more jobs.
And ultimately to be a steuart of more companies that helped me achieve my goal of creating a better tomorrow faster.
