20 anys Lleida.net

Did we mention we turn 20?

20-lleida-net

This month marks a major milestone for Lleida.net as on  January 30 we celebrate our 20th anniversary. Thanks for those great 20 years, and here’s to 20 more. What began in 1995 with 3 friends has grown into a company spread over 16 countries with employees committed to building a model of company focused on success.

20 years ago, we were scared at the same time as passionate, young, and without kids or debts. And our families had steady jobs, so we were on an “all hands on deck” situation. Today we can say proudly that their effort, sacrifice, love and support have not fallen on deaf ears, and we give them back the bet they made on us .

What has been our formula for turning 20 years of commercial life and to transform our desires into goals?

Some may argue we just have been lucky, we were gifted for being in the right place at the right time, others may say we are both stubborn and headstrong (I am clear about that), some may even think Lady Luck has been in our side, but the truth is that the formula consists of two main ingredients namely, to believe in ourselves and to truly enjoy our working experience.

However, this is not an ironclad magic formula, it does not prevent us against failure, discouragement or fate. All these adversities give us the opportunity to reinvent ourselves, to learn that there are other ways of doing things. We owe this goal to the passionate dedication of coworkers and friends, the strength of our partnerships and the success and loyalty of our customers. We have spread Lleida.net all over the world and we have enjoyed opportunities we never dreamed possible.

We are facing a window of opportunity to create our own path, that is what we have done and what we will do.

Last week at a preparatory meeting I was pleasantly surprised. We were discussing about Lleida.net new stage of growth and maturity. They assure me that in 20 years’ time we will still remember this 20-year journey.

Let’s go for the new stage, with enthusiasm, commitment, effort and perseverance.

Let the adventure continue!

Let us cheer!

  1. It is always interesting and quite inspiring reading from gurus who has followed their heart to bring about great revolution in the development of our society. Notwithstanding am also looking forward to add Ghana on the list of counties which Lleida.net is operating through sirexconsortium. Thanks
