It's hard to believe that five years have passed since the humble beginning of 1000 Cranes Business Consulting. After teaching for Duke University's Nonprofit Certificate program in June 2002, I decided to go ahead and create the company when the demand started increasing for speaking engagements and consulting events.
On September 30, 2003, the NC Secretary of State's office officially registered the paperwork for 1000 Cranes, LLC, and 1000 Cranes has been climbing along ever since. The business has had its ups and downs just like any organization, but overall, it has been a rewarding journey. I left my full-time job in corporate America to focus on 1000 Cranes full-time on July 1, 2005, and have not looked back.
I have many people to thank for making 1000 Cranes such a success. 1000 Cranes is blessed to have a fantastic set of clients, wonderful partner consultants and outstanding advisors. I don't know what I would do without a great lawyer, accountant and image advisors on the team.
Most of all, faith has been a big driver for the business. As many of you know, the Philosophy of 1000 Cranes includes:
- Success comes from Faith and Vision.
- Success comes from Planning and Execution.
- Success comes from Embracing Change.
- Success comes from Collaborative Relationships.
- Success comes from Helping Others.
Many thanks to everyone who has supported 1000 Cranes over the years. We appreciate your business and continued patronage and look forward to serving you over the years to come.
