What it takes to run a small business for 5 years!

5 years that Aleuro Inc has been in business. Wow!

Thanks to LinkedIn, we were reminded of our upcoming company anniversary and are so unbelievably proud to say not only has our company hit this major milestone, but is thriving and growing in a way that makes us look forward to the 10th anniversary!

You’re probably wondering where these last few years went and that’s a really good question.  Let’s take a look at what exactly Aleuro Inc did to guarantee they hit this 5 year mark!

It is commonly know that 45-50% of small businesses will fail in the first 5 years.  “About half of all new establishments survive five years or more and about one-third survive 10 years or more. As one would expect, the probability of survival increases with a firm’s age.” http://bit.ly/1F8em6Z – Source: U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, BED

One of the first things Aleuro Inc attributes their success to, is that they don’t believe in statistics (especially dismal ones like this one above) and they don’t believe that what was done yesterday matters.  There is only today and what is being done TODAY to be the best version of oneself is what will determine success.  Aleuro Inc had their best year yet in 2012 and it was epic – promotions, travel, hitting records for their client, etc. Imagine if all they did in 2013 was reminisce on what was done the year before.  Think they would have made it to 2014, 2015 or be planning for their biggest year yet, 2016?  The answer is no. Because all that matters for tomorrow is what you’re doing today, not yesterday.

A second notion Aleuro Inc feels has brought them to their 5 year anniversary is that they focus on the big rocks first and fill the rest of their time with the small rocks.  No matter one’s model, every small business is usually responsible to 2 parties; their employees and their customers/shareholders.  Aleuro Inc learned from a very young business age, that nothing else is more important than providing a positive, vibrant and educational work environment for their team, who in turn translate that good energy when taking care of customers. It’s actually really simple, they feel. Take care of your people and they will take care of your business.

Thirdly, Aleuro Inc focuses on self-improvement.  Their management team always want to be better versions of themselves. They want to be better citizens to their community, parents, husbands, wives, business leaders in San Antonio. Everyday they read self-help business books, watch motivational videos, divulge in business articles, network on Linkedin, and travel to conferences internationally to network with the best in the marketing and sales industry.  The business our company is built off of is the idea that small improvements over an extended period of time, create strong managers. “Be the change you wish to see in the world,” as the quote goes.

Fourthly, Aleuro Inc believes.  They truly believe that they represent the best telecommunication client in the United States. They believe that their Management Training Program can shape peoples futures and change lives and they believe that they have the most talented and charismatic team in San Antonio. Confidence is contagious and theirs is off the charts.

Lastly, they dream.  They foresee a MASSIVE future in store for Aleuro Inc and will share it with anyone willing to listen. Overseeing 2 locations currently in San Antonio and Salt Lake City, Aleuro Inc plans to be in 10 locations by their 10th anniversary. From the east coast to west coast, no corner of the United States can escape their vision. Purpose, passion and a dream.  What more do you need to be writing this article again 5 years down the road?
