Different Kinds of Success in a Business, According to Brandon Frere
PETALUMA, Calif., August 10, 2018 (Newswire.com) - If five different people were asked what a successful business was to them, aside from bringing in money, there would likely be five different answers. Some people might say the only focus is money, some might say a smoothly running business that can support its own weight is ideal. Others create a business around what people need and might define their success by helping those who need their services. Brandon Frere, CEO and president of Frere Enterprises, made his businesses with the idea of helping people in tough financial situations with their student loans because he saw how desperately some people needed his help.
“I saw how high student loans were getting. The amount is insane. I have my own student loans, so I know the struggle personally. Student loan borrowers needed someone to advocate for them, and that’s what I’ve aimed to do,” said Frere.
Businesses that offer a needed service or product have a duty to do right by the customers that keep the business afloat. Be it medical services, providing food or helping people out of difficult financial situations so they can avoid poverty, those services should be affordable, accessible and run with a high set of morals alongside the genuine desire to help people. In our society, a business does have to at least make enough money to function properly, but profits shouldn’t be the entire point of a necessary company. Making needed services too expensive or unavailable to many people is cruel, and a sort of gatekeeping. “Success is not about financial success or material possessions. It’s about emotional success,” said Frere. “If a business owner runs a business with customers and employees in the forefront of their mind, they’ll be able to find a unique -- but worthwhile -- kind of success.”
