As a small business owner myself, Cloud Friday was a creation of mine that grew out of many needs. Needs of myself and of others I knew. It was not a quick or small decision to start this company, but it was a necessary one. Let me tell you my story.
As a career Accountant, I always struggled working with supervisors who expected you to slave away day in and day out without extra pay or extra appreciation. Further, they often managed by the “do what I tell you because I said so” mentality and that does not work well for me.
I rose in the ranks until becoming an Accounting Manager, at which time I started to ponder whether there isn’t a more effective way to do business. That’s when I realized if I can lead a team as I’d like to be led, all will work out. This is not the case; there is always someone else managing you. For many of our clients at Cloud Friday, this is a common reason for becoming self-employed or a business owner. The same was true for me.
