When I signed up to write this blog post, I assumed it was to tell you how great I was at eCommerce or how amazing Shopify is. I soon learned I had the freedom to write something more personal, so rather than try to convince you with some “Best Practice” or “Thought Leadership” content, I wanted to take this opportunity to write something else.
I’ve been working for 20 years of my life at a wide variety of companies. Never have I felt a sense of culture like the one at Common Thread Collective.
I decided to come to this organization for one simple reason: Belief.
To join a group of smart individuals that were all committed to one belief: Helping Entrepreneurs Achieve Their Dreams. They convinced me that this was real. I was inspired.
One of the key tenets here at Common Thread Collective is the concept of being the entrepreneur of your own life. After working at so many places that stifled my creativity and desire to be more entrepreneurial, CTC chose me because of this.
So why am I here?
As the new eCommerce Director, I came here to build our web development practice and lead us to become the leading Shopify agency. Shopify is an amazing platform and continues to innovate to meet today’s business owner’s needs. It may even be the best bet for businesses to fight the Amazon behemoth that exists today with the introduction of logistics services.
Shopify is a product that I believe in. The same way I believe in CTC and more importantly, myself.
The mission of this organization is to be the best at what we do, not because we care about the money, but because we care about helping people like you achieve your dreams too. I wouldn’t blame you if you didn’t believe me either, but talk to us and see for yourself.
