We talk about the WorkflowMax product often but not the people behind it. We want to change that by taking the time to chat with the team and share their thoughts with you. This week we are featuring Adam Jones who is an Account Manager for WorkflowMax based in Sydney, Australia.
Adam is passionate about many things including Small Business and Surfing. Before joining the team, Adam operated as a WorkflowMax set up partner and coach providing a tailored WorkflowMax setup to businesses across Australia. It's been 9 months since he joined the team; let's learn more about Adam.
So Adam, how did you first hear about WorkflowMax?
I found out about WorkflowMax as I was learning about Cloud Software. It started with G-Suite (Google apps at the time). From there, an Accountant friend of mine was raving about a Cloud Accounting Software called Xero which led me to WorkflowMax. I began to work for a cloud integrator and haven’t looked back.
What attracted to join the Xero team?
As much as I love the product both Xero and WorkflowMax, it was the people that attracted me here. During my time as an implementation partner, I had several interactions with the team and decided it would be a good place to work. Turns out I wasn't wrong.
What is something you have learned since joining the Xero team?
Xero employees aren’t scared to try things. I like that!
Do you have any advice for a business just starting on WorkflowMax?
A lot of small businesses don’t know what they want out of a Project Management system but they know what they have isn’t working. Be patient and be okay with incremental improvements.
What is your favourite surf beach?
I am a big fan of exploring the whole east coast NSW but I can't tell you any favourite surf spots, it's against local rules! There's plenty of beaches to choose from though especially when you get out of the city!
Fair enough! How about some tips for anyone who wants to learn how to surf?
As for tips, start at a surf school. You'll be on the right board and up surfing long before doing it yourself. Don't forget to show the ocean the respect it demands too. It's a great place to hang out, but can quickly turn against you if you're not careful.
As we finish up could you share a quote or saying that inspires you with the WorkflowMax community?
My new favourite I heard recently is "Be where your feet are".
The idea Adam shared of being where your feet are sounds easy but in practice can be very difficult especially for business owners! How do you as a business owner stay present? I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments or reach out to us on Twitter @WorkflowMax
