Finishing What You Start
All companies have difficulties like everyone else. Everyone has challenges. From a one-bedroom apartment in Twin Cities to five different countries, Malcolm and Midland Digital Solutions have had ups and downs. When you lead a big company like this, when the going gets rough, you can’t just throw in the towel. You have to continue to do the work! You can take a nap, yes, but you have to get up, rally the troops, strategize, and move forward!
Delegation at the Core
Focus on what you’re good at and have others do the ones you’re not-so-good at. That’s going to keep you working on the business and not in the business. Of course, when you’re starting the company, you might be in a position of burnout, wearing different hats, but once you get through it through hard work, you have to acknowledge that you need help from other people. Ensure that you find the right people, ones you can trust that will do the job right. Of course, remember to pay them well!
About Malcolm Ilogu:
As the co-founder, business growth consultant, and lead digital strategist of the vibrant growth marketing, software development and technology firm Midland Digital Solutions, I know what it takes to dominate the digital landscape across different countries, continents and cultures.
Our story began 10 years ago in a tiny 1-bedroom apartment in the twin cities. From there, armed with the digital savvy and knowledge I gained from the great Valley City State University and my time running digital operations for a silicon valley powerhouse, I founded our firm with the vision of providing clients with a team of specialists equipped with a broad range of competencies across the digital sphere. We’ve come a long way since then, boasting 5 strategic global delivery centers!
I have gained years of extensive field experience, not only from overcoming my own obstacles to digital success, but from helping companies to identify and conquer theirs. From outdated tech to no growth marketing infrastructure and a lack of digital know-how, I’ve seen firsthand how our technology and growth services enable our clients to work smarter – not harder!
By leveraging the latest technology and our intricate growth marketing infrastructure, we will simplify and streamline your internal processes. This focus on digital business growth and optimization generates an immediate ROI by attracting, converting, and retaining new customers!
Today, our passion for progress is evident in our comprehensive growth marketing, website design and development, custom software application development, mobile application design, blockchain technology, big data, cloud migration, business strategy and consulting, IT staff augmentation, and eCommerce services. No matter your industry, collaborating with us will allow you to enjoy the endless benefits of digital success, without needing to employ full-time staff of your own!
