"Growth is never by mere chance; it is the result of forces working together."

James Cash Penney, Founder of JCPenney

I read a statistic recently that says half of all companies fail within the first 5 years. Well, this week we are celebrating 5 years as PropLogix (whoop, whoop!) Although our company has more than 20 years in the business, it was 5 years ago that we took on the 'PropLogix' name and the goal to make this company something spectacular.
It's been a challenging and fulfilling journey so far. I have seen myself grow along with it in ways I never thought possible when I started over 4 years ago as a researcher. Now, I'm the Chief Operations Officer and I'm responsible for each employee and the zillions of reports they send out each month.  
This anniversary seems like a good time to reflect on some of the biggest changes and challenges we've met since growing from a handful -- to a building-full.
1. Size - When your company increases by 2,500% you've really got to keep up. We've quickly outgrown an entire floor of our office building and will soon be upgrading to a big and beautiful new space. Everyone is really excited about that -- but the tight quarters have given us a chance to be creative and bond with each other. 
2. Organization - Five years ago the few people that worked for us had an exhaustive list of duties. Now we can dedicate people to a single focus and they're the experts. I mean, we have our own sales force and a separate marketing department. It's been really cool to see this happen. 
3. Company Culture - I feel proud to be part of cultivating a fun-loving and enthusiastic atmosphere. The people of PropLogix really care about what they do. We like to keep things casual here and it still feels like we're a tight-knit family. It's my goal for that to remain a constant
