Skating to where the puck will be

"I skate to where the puck will be, not to where it is right now" is the quotation attributed to Wayne Gretzky, the world-class Canadian ice hockey legend.

There are three main aspects to my role at present:
1. Securing new business, including a couple of $30k+ contracts in the last month or so.

2. Working with colleagues to improve structures and processes to take cost out of the business, while maintaining or improving quality.

3. But it's the third aspect of helping to position the business to where it needs to be in the future that's most exciting, and most inspired by the genius of sports professionals like Gretzky.
