We are small business owners ourselves and understand what its like running a small business. We know the highs and the lows – the joys of landing a new contract and the days when survival depends on your ability to juggle a variety of tasks simultaneously, put out raging fires and effortlessly flip between the many hats you wear. If you’re like most small business owners, one of your largest worries is how you’ll find enough time and resources to strike a balance between the focus of your business and all the other things that just have to get done.
If Michelangelo had been more focused on administration than creating things of beauty, the world would have been poorer for it. Instead he left the management of his business affairs to Luigi del Riccio, freeing him up to sculpt the famous David and paint his master work, the Sistine Chapel.
We believe everyone has an inner Sistine Chapel, just waiting to be discovered. We also have the audacity to believe work is not a zero sum game. When we are free to focus on our passions, i.e. meaningful and inspiring work, we all win.
We at Alight love having the opportunity to meet and help fellow business owners. It’s incredibly rewarding to be able to free them to focus on what inspired them to go into business in the first place. We love it when we can use our talents and strengths to help our customers, colleagues and partners leverage theirs.
Recognising we can’t help everyone and because of a principle called “Likeonomics” (the idea that we naturally prefer to work with people we like and trust) we implemented the Beverage Test. We wish we could take credit for the Beverage Test but it is an idea we borrowed from a fellow entrepreneur and friend, Mike Farag, who owns Fervor. If you like what you see so far and think it might be interesting for us to work together, please reach out via our contact form, send us an email or connect with us on social media. Let’s get together over a glass of wine, beer or a cup of coffee/tea and see if working together makes sense.
