What I learned in my first year of business

Happy 1st Birthday Ridgegate Consulting!

Written by Deanna Hunter

I’ve always said that I’ll know when it’s time to move on from a job when I have stopped learning.   With that in mind I can tell you that all indicators point to many more years of work as Consultant and Owner at Ridgegate Consulting.  The amount I learned in my first year of business has been incredible.  Some of it painful, some of it invigorating.  All of it useful.

Here are just some of the things I learned in my first year of business:


  • Social media isn’t that scary after all.
  • I’m good at warm calls.  Cold calls, not so much.
  • I have developed an impressive professional network over the years.
  • I do my best thinking at my computer, wearing my fuzzy bathrobe and sipping coffee.
  • I dislike bookkeeping…more than I had imagined.
  • It’s all about timing.
  • Working from home is awesome.
  • Patience, patience, patience.
  • Ideas and opportunities are all around you.     You just need to pay attention.
  • I know a ton about HR.
