Change is a good thing…

Life is made up of goings and comings, and whatever it is that you take with you, there are always some things that you live behind.

The Ducorp XTM team moved offices a few weeks ago and started work in a new office and new location. This coincided with the company entering the third phase in its development.

The first stage, the Geronimo phase, was all about setting up the company, carrying out the registration, recruitment, drafting and signing of contracts and confidentiality agreements, creation of visual identity and website and web addresses.

The second stage was the Atlas phase that was when the company started interacting with the world on a trial basis to get feedback, review and strengthen its business model, its products and processes. Since Monday, we are officially in the third phase, the Trident phase, when the rubber hits the road as the company enters into the battlefield to launch its ventures, ready to compete and fight for its survival.

The shift to a new environment obviously entailed some letting go. We left behind our friends from EDB and Fintech and it takes some getting used to not seeing them and greeting them every morning.

Then we do miss our dholl puris and dipain tikka at the food stall emba latente. At the same time, there are some new elements that take some getting used to, like the morning traffic and the lack of food facilities in the immediate neighborhood. But this change in gears has its joys and excitement too. We now have a studio to produce our own video and audio materials for our media company.

We have a stage where we will soon be launching our first of its kind game event Hustlemania. We are further actively working on the launch of our clothing line JFCFORXTM and our book published on Amazon has finally arrived and some book signing is going on. Our coaching sessions are also going on regularly through our Training Academy and more ventures are in the pipeline and will soon see the light of day.

More excitement to look forward to, more change, more growth. In the words of Andy Warhol: “When people are ready to, they change. They never do it before then. You can’t make them change if they don’t want to, just like when they do want to, you can’t stop them.”
