Notes from the President

Ken Hilton - President Red Wing Software

I’ve heard it said that if you genuinely enjoy a job, you’ll never work a day in your life. I hope everyone reading this has the same problem I have: sometimes it’s difficult to remember I have a job, but if you enjoy your job as I do, it doesn’t seem like work.
Pam, my wife, who also works at Red Wing Software, and I recently “worked” at a trade show, representing Red Wing Software in a display booth. I don’t get to do this often, but the show was close to my home, so I was the logical choice, and I enjoyed the assignment. I always have the benefit of enjoying what I do and having a great team of professionals to work with, but I don’t often get to meet and talk with so many wonderful customers over a short period, which was the most rewarding part of this assignment.
I appreciated everyone who stopped by our display to say ‘hi’ and chat. It’s wonderful to hear the compliments about our support staff and how people use our software. Many customers who stopped by have been with us since the 1980s; others are relatively new to the products. While I always appreciate them as customers and the business they give us, they seem more like long-time friends.
I encourage you to look around and enjoy your job and choose never to work a day in your life.
