While no one likes surprises in business, stress can serve to focus an individual and, on rare occasions, result in a myopic focus that produces extraordinary results. Stress, however, is unhealthy – we all hate it, and it serves no long-term purpose. So how does Rainmaker Eliminate Surprises and operate in a Stress-Free proposal environment? In a word – preparation. There is an old English proverb that says, “measure twice – cut once”. At Rainmaker, everything is measured, re-measured and measured again.
