MY ROOTS

by Melynda Roy

I was born and raised in a small farm town in Southern Maine.  I grew up 20 minutes from the beach, and the ocean stole my heart as a young girl. I have been surrounded by open air, tons of animals and wilderness and a fair few entrepreneurs in my teen years.  My dad owns a garage, my grandfathers both owned companies too.

When I turned 18 I left Maine and moved to Richmond Virginia, where I didn’t know anyone ! This was my biggest adventure. My closest relative was only about a 90 minute drive away, and that was good enough for me. I started seeking my degree in Kinetic Imaging where I learned 3D Game Design, Animation, and all things film related.

TRANSITIONING INTO ASSISTANT MANAGEMENT

Someone asked me a few weeks ago what I changed to get me out of the lead trainer position into assistant management.  Since then I’ve been quite introspective trying to find that 1 thing I did that got me promoted. The truth is, there isn’t. Over the course of the year that Codis Group has been opened I have been very persistent in developing myself and others. Everyday coming in early, putting in the right actions, getting results that I can be proud of. I go in every morning with the intention to help my team progress as much as possible.

I focused on multiplying instead of adding I started helping the people on my team not just by leading by example but also by just doing things with them. Sometimes I gave more help than I felt that they earned, but I also learned here that you can miss a lot of potential if you don’t believe in someone. The biggest thing for me was making sure that I focused on what I believed I could do, and what I believed my team could do.

Overall my focus that changed when the momentum really started building was understanding the compound effect. I started focusing on my strengths, not my weaknesses. I recognized that every day was a work in progress because I haven’t hit my goal yet.

So I have to allow myself to not be perfect, I have to allow myself to fail in order to start to make the mistakes that I know I can grow from. And most importantly I had to learn that nothing will ever stop moving, so I can either adapt or get left behind.

Overall believe in people, eliminate self doubt, never lie to yourself, and if you can truly say you’re doing your best, eventually, you will get results.
