Have you earned your chair?

Have You Earned Your Chair?

Ever wondered if you are working hard enough? In business I always ask myself have I earned my chair today? When I started working at Data Path my boss (and husband) encouraged me to get a new chair, as the one they provided was old and outdated. I just didn't feel comfortable investing in something I hadn't earned. My answer was "I will buy a new chair when I have earned my chair." 

Everyone knows that business can take a long time to earn. It takes many emails, phone calls, Zoom meetings, marketing, eCommerce building, flyers, talking and talking about your business hoping someone will trust you enough to take a chance. Building relationships take time.  After spending many hours/ days/ years at Data Path I have earned a new, fairly modest, but comfortable chair. Some days I earn my chair and some days I am defeated. My thought is, never give up. Work hard today and tomorrow to earn business, earn trust, and earn your chair! Enjoy your day. 

The chair pictured was my first chair at Data Path, inc. It's an original HON design. HON was founded in 1944. Although this chair is not that old, I believe this indestructible chair is from the 1970s. Pretty certain it's a keeper!
