Celebrations happen every day in the day of an entrepreneur. A new idea, a new problem conquered or a new introduction made are part of the path to success. Today (June 21), we celebrate the birthday of Richard Gabel. In my world, Richard Gabel is a celebrity and trusted advisor. Professional, personal, committed, knowledgeable and open minded are words which would not be enough.
If you are local to the Pacific Northwest, you have a big opportunity to meet Richard in person. He does not juggle, do magic or stand on his head to get your attention. In fact, he becomes a perfect example of how those who are most valuable may not be talking the most because they are busy getting things done.
I have a big appreciation for Richard because he uses a right brain - left brain approach to business. He has an under graduate degree in marketing AND a graduate degree is in finance. Thus he thinks about growing revenue while keeping in mind of how to maintain profit and protect the assets. Prior to going into general management, Richard held senior level positions in treasury, business development, marketing and strategic planning. His work experience ranges from senior level corporate staff of a Fortune 200 company to President of a start-up joint venture.
Even with the depth of education and experience, Richard keeps his feet on the ground and is easy to talk with. There is not a "bigger than you" attitude and he perpetually thinks of "service first".
You can experience Richard first hand no matter which part of the world you may be in. He is the owner of Meadow Creek Business Center.
Meadow Creek Business Center is a full service support system for any business. You can find help with:
- Strategic Planning
- Business Plans
- Marketing Plans
- Marketing Campaign Implementation
Meadow Creek Business Center also includes:
- 68 offices
- 4 conference rooms
- 2 kitchens
- A reception area with cabled and Wi-Fi internet service
- Copiers, phone and voicemail service.
- There is plenty of free parking, free coffee and tea service, vending and an attractive setting in a very convenient location.
Fortunately, Richard also has a sense of humor. At least I think so.
The easiest way to participate with Richard is a virtual office. This can be done from anywhere around the world. This is not just any virtual office because as you will soon learn, Richard Gabel is fully engaged with his business and the community.
Every entrepreneur is a target. Sales people, marginal performeers, advertisers and "consultants" who may or may not be helpful. An entrepreneur is after all at the top of the decision making ladder. Finding the right type of support is difficult.
I will stake my reputation on Richard. In fact, by sharing Richard and his business with you today is pretty much doing so.
Every day there are people you come in contact with who are a 10 out of a 10 in terms of character and expertise. They most likely will have a certain amount of humility which will keep them from standing out from the crowd. It takes time to understand who they might be.
I have many such people who are friends and associates. I get to celebrate each of them every day. They make it easier to get over the bumps and keep a smile.
Today is the day to celebrate Richard, his business and what he brings to the community.
Invite him to connect and start a conversation. (and say Happy Birthday) You will be thankful that you did.
