Thriving at Home: What Being ‘The Best’ Means to Us (Thurston Talk)
Olympia, Wash. (April 4, 2016) – When my husband, Greg, and I told our friends and family we had decided to open FirstLight Home Care – South Sound, they kept asking us the same question – “What’s your plan?” We heard it over and over again. And since neither of us had ever started a business before, it was a genuine, sincere inquiry. But we didn’t decide to start a local home care agency on a whim. Both of us had experience in successful organizations, I had worked previously placing caregivers in the homes of seniors and Greg had spent six years as president of a thriving non-profit media corporation. We also spent well over a year developing a detailed blueprint to guide us through the launch and growth of our FirstLight business.
At the core of the plan was one simple objective – Be The Best. That is, offer our clients the best possible care and the best service around.
