Feeling Fortunate


fortune500I recently had a meeting with a new 3rd party client (meaning that they are actually a client of one of my clients). For some reason I was nervous about the meeting as I didn’t feel I was as well versed as I could be in the area we would be discussing.

However, the meeting went much better than I feared, and it has made me want to take stock of my accomplishments in my business over the past 4.5 years.

What I came to realize last night is that I have now provided analytics services to nearly a dozen Fortune 500 companies. When looking at it another way I have also provided those same services to over a dozen Fortune 1000 companies. Either way you slice it, I hadn’t realized until now how many companies I’ve worked with that up in the “Fortune” range.

I honestly am having a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that little old me has worked with so many large, successful corporations. It’s truly humbling that so many have entrusted me to provide this type of service to them, especially when it’s so critical to making online business decisions. To that end I feel I need to send out a few “thank yous”

  • Thank you to my previous manager, Laura Roselli. Back when I was still working at LSI Corporation, she made the call to use Omniture for our Web Analytics tool. It’s my hands-on experience with that tool that allowed me to launch my independent career.
  • Thank you to my other previous manager, Paula Silveri. She didn’t realize it at the time, but laying me off from my job gave me the kick-in-the-pants I needed to start my own business.
  • Thank you to my first client, CP+B for taking a chance on me. The 8 months I worked with you and your client was a great learning experience, and helped me land all the other clients I’ve had since.
  • Finally, thank you to all my other clients over the past 4.5 years – both past and present. Without you, Endress|Analytics LLC would not exist.
