Beyond the Surface Because Talk is Cheap
Many ideas have come and go, from business, to nonprofit, to academic and everything else in between. Some ideas have stuck and become successful organizations and others began and sunk very quickly. According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics: about 20% fail in their first year.
Alhamdulilah, all praise is due to God, Bamrec has been running strong and is almost 3 years old. While that is no indication or claim that the organization has succeeded by any means, reached profitability, or hit its target - at the very least (insha’Allah) it’s a good sign that we’re headed in the right direction.
While there are many elements that contribute to the company’s [current] success, below are a few that helped shape Bamrec to become the organization that it is today.
1. We spoke, then followed through with action. Initially Bamrec was just an idea, like every other organization and company out there. The difference is our Founder and co-founding team members are quick to act because we all know how the saying goes “talk is cheap.” Despite the dozens of first stage obstacles that came our way, action, persistence, and focus got us through the roughest of times.
2. You spoke, so we followed through with action. When we ask for feedback, we really mean it and appreciate it. When our valued parents, coaches, and community members give us their two cents, we actually take it into consideration and then implement it if it’s what’s best for the organization, and most importantly, for the kids.
3. At the surface everyone can look pretty, we want you to dig deep with us. Beyond the surface of fun, field trips, camps, activities, and a good time - we put endless hours into back-end development, curriculum, planning of programs, training, and everything in between. We haven’t been sharing too much of what we’ve been up to and apologize for leaving you in the dark. But if you’re reading this on the app, then you’re now one step closer to being connected with us and hearing our news and updates. If you’re not reading this on the BR app, we highly encourage you to download it and stay connected with us. Beyond the news, it’s a very important community tool that we’ve been building stringently for the past 9 months.
We’re not where we want to be just yet, but we are getting very close. Moving forward we’ll be updating you regularly through the app and through other mediums. We expect you to expect us to continue pushing the envelope forward with development, professionalism, and overall growth. Because if you look beyond the surface of the fun of it all, these are your children and our future community leaders that we’re serving and shaping; we don’t take that lightly. We’re here to instill confidence, character, and creativity into the minds of everyone who’s proud to be a part of this organization.
