Why I DropSwitched...

It’s a question that’s had many answers along the way. Why are we doing this? On those late nights when it’s all become a blur you have to remind yourselves of the key reasons that have driven the development of DropSwitch on. However in between there were lots of less clear and intellectually valid reasons too. Some based on necessity some on wants - but mainly it was the needs. During the process lots of the wants have actually become needs too. A lot of important stuff has had to take a back seat. The kids, wife and garden have all been neglected and need extra effort in future to make up for it. The incessant ‘plate spinning’ to try and make it all come together has been mind boggling. I might have put on a few pounds anyway but my eyesight has been fried and I can hardly feel my feet anymore, they do seem to improve if I use them a bit so hopefully they’ll come back when I get to the ‘phone phase’ and give them a purpose in life again. But putting aside all the survival instincts, pig-headedness, stupidity and blind faith - what was the real impetus behind DropSwitch? It was the necessity to do something myself because I’d waited too long for someone to do it for me, it had gone on too long and couldn’t go on any longer. My business needed this, I’d rather just be able to buy the solution for myself but I can’t, so I have to do it myself. Now having done what no one would do for me I become the supplier of the solution and hopefully can not only share what I have done - to give many businesses the tools I needed - but also develop those ideas further and take things way beyond what I needed. No doubt DropSwitch will do everything I hope for my own business, it certainly should! But now DropSwitch itself has become something far bigger and more important than anything I’ve previously done and I have the huge task, having just completed stage one, of making sure it fulfills all that potential. The potential that pushed me beyond what I previously believed were my limits now has to be fulfilled, that’s the toughest job, but as long as I can close my eyes and use my feet a bit more it can be done!
