“This isn’t the moment to play it safe. I think this is the moment to swing for the fences, try something new, step out on your own and put the future in your hands!”
I received this advice from CMO Adam Coughlin last year when I was deciding whether or not to take the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to join York IE. It also happens to be a favorite Campbell phase in our house – especially when my husband uses it to book a trip or plan an experience.
In today’s great resignation, people are looking for more purpose, more drive and something that gets them up in the morning and keeps them energized. After 2020, it’s not time to play it safe. It’s finding your hooks in everything you do. It’s about knowing what you want and going for it.
Not everyone wants to create something new or can create something new like a founder does, but anyone can find a purpose in a company they believe in with a vision that aligns with their core values. This alignment is the drive that keeps them going. It’s the power to be part of something bigger. It’s the ability to make an impact. It’s having a lasting legacy.
At York IE, we’re all about helping startups grow. We believe in them and can see the long-term impact of the technologies they are building and the visions they are aspiring to realize. We become an extension of the team, live each vision, and help set the trajectory for future growth. We are fortunate to be in the room with our companies, sitting at the edge of their technology, watching the emerging markets and seeing what will change the world each day through our startups’ eyes.
Day in and day out, I watch our incredible teams push themselves further than they themselves thought possible, with unimaginable outcomes. It’s making the connections, providing the guidance needed and seeing how we can help as a dependable set of experienced hands.
We’re hiring at York IE. Do you want to keep doing the same thing every day and playing it safe? The most successful people don’t wait. They take control of their careers and they act on their dreams.
