There is no real success without a trade-off
There is no real success without a trade-off. My family used to originate from a very low start, so far as I look back, it has been 12 years of continuous efforts and strives. Before I really became a successful carpenter, my life was not flat, there was a lot of trouble from a young age.
Journey to find my own career
My family was poor at that time, but my parents still let me finish grade 12. Because at that time, no one oriented me so I gave up my studies to go to the carpenter career. In the first few days of work, I worked in many places and for many people. The first is to make my uncle, then go to Hanoi and finally work at home. After the first few years of effort, perhaps the most daring decision I made began to change my life. I decided to change my small house to a house more than 500 square meters and make up for the extra money. After having a wider face, I decided to expand my business at home, started hiring more workers, started to buy the first machines and from there, a large wooden workshop named after me was born.
The first result I received
Many years later I tried relentlessly, trying to save a lot of money. Until 2007, I decided to build a more modern home for my family. So far, the house has experienced 4 times of renovation and once expanded the area, but it still retains its own value and is a beautiful memory marking a great success in my life.
The qualities needed by a carpenter
For me, a carpenter not only needs effort but also requires perseverance, hard work, skill and sophistication, sensitivity. Because this profession not only requires health but also requires skills. This skill stems in part from instinct and a big part in hard work. Newcomers will learn basic skills, and for those who are long-time, they have more skilled skills. And the carpenter’s mission is to bring his heart and soul to every product. For me, making the best product is not enough, and making it last for a long time is the most important thing. So right from the first products, we often put the prestige first. Prestige is a symbol of trust, a trust, a belief for customers to rely on and also a motivation for me to keep trying, to maintain my consistency.
Daily work of a business manager
Although now I am the manager of this business, it is not simple. Every day, I have to wake up very early to consider the work schedule of the workers, but the work is not complete to make a reasonable plan and to assign work. It also includes preparing wood for further steps. During the day, I had to observe and monitor the work of the workers, when I was not at home, the workers also took turns managing each other’s work to limit the occurrence of mistakes in the process. By the end of the day, everyone was responsible for cleaning up the furniture and work I was doing to continue for the next day and I would be the one to finalize the work.
My knowledge and the work that I can use from my knowledge
As a manager of my career for a long time, the knowledge that I gained from this career is no less, the time has given me much experience and valuable skills. So far, aside from being a carpenter, a manager, I have also worked on the interior design, home and a design consultant for utility living space.
Pride for my dedication to my own career
I know that it is not easy to be successful today. I have spent nearly half of my life in my career and it can never make me regret it, on the contrary, I feel completely satisfied because I don’t waste my youth. Now that I look back, the great success that I achieved could be considered that I have conquered the Everest peak of my life.
