Right Place, Long Time
Success in business is sometimes attributed to being in the right place at the right time. There’s certainly something to that, but we’ve learned that the "right time" usually takes a lot longer to get to than most of us have the patience for. Maybe it's a result of our on-demand culture. Maybe it’s just human nature. Whatever it is, as more and more business opportunities come up for us, we've been recognizing that most of them really are years in the making. Sometimes it just comes down to patience and perseverance.
