Liquidline started out with one 19-year-old man, with one water machine and a big dream. Fast forward fifteen years and Liquidline is comprised of 70 staff, 5 regional offices, a huge machine range comprising of water machines, coffee machines and juice machines and our own coffee bean and consumable range. Liquidline have expanded rapidly and continue to grow at a rate that most businesses would be proud of. So, as we reach this fifteen-year juncture, we thought we would share fifteen of the most valuable lessons we have learnt along the way, in the hope that they may bring you success in your business too.
1. Work Really Hard
Be prepared for the rest of life to take a back seat for a while. When you start any business but particularly when you start one that provides a service, you have to be prepared to work really hard and really long hours. When you work for yourself, you don’t get paid holiday or sickness and the harder you work in the early days, the quicker the business will grow.
