A big challenge for Emerge is managing growth. Jesse Kegley stated, “When we grow our staff to keep up with our success in the market place we make sure that the individual is going to be a right fit into the position.” Finding the correct person for a role can help enhance customer relationships and enables Emerge to have continuing success. Kegley’s most important business lesson is to focus on what your company does well and stick to your competency. He said, “If you are focused on the long-term relationship then you will soon discover that making the right recommendation to a partner and focusing on what you do well will pay off in the long run.”
Kegley’s Business partners are who he admires most in business- they operate as a team and “Provide an excellent balance to each other’s strengths.” In addition they help each other learn and grow which makes Emerge better every day. Kegley’s advice for someone starting out in business today is to surround yourself with the right people inside and outside your organization.
