Mason Reed: The Influencers


It’s hard to believe that the xmas break is over and we are already well into the New Year.

As a business owner, the start of a New Year is a good time to step back and to reflect on the past business year and set some goals for the year to come.  It is easy, when we are busy, to fall into the trap of working in the business rather than working on the business.

Having a break gives us the opportunity to step back from the business and to have a critical look at it. This year is shaping to be another busy one for Fraser Thomas Ltd. We moved into our new office late last year, which is much more suitable for our expanding workforce. We are working with some inspirational clients, who are challenging our engineering ingenuity and will ensure that we are exposed to some exciting engineering challenges this year.

That being said, this year my goal is to try and make more time in my busy schedule, to ensure that I have more time for my wife and kids and also for myself. Success in business typically takes a lot of time and effort, but we also need to try and prioritise working on ourselves, in order to enable us to maintain our health and focus (which ultimately will help to improve our businesses).
