If you take a look at our last post, you’ll see that for about a year, BenchWorks was closed off to new users. We’re back open now, and I would love to take a moment to fill you in on the behind-the-scenes goings on.
Let me introduce myself.
I’m Kendra Bryant, owner of Kendra Renee Jewelry Design and wife of engineer-extraordinaire and creator of BenchWorks, Robby Bryant. My jewelry business is what inspired Robby to create BenchWorks in the first place, and I use it every day.
Robby’s day job is pretty demanding, and when things got really busy, he turned off sign-ups to ensure that he could maintain the high standards of service he holds. After about a year, two things became abundantly clear:
1.) The community needs BenchWorks. We get constant requests to sign up, and there is truly nothing else out there like it. Our people have been waiting and waiting…
2.) Robby’s job was not slowing down, and time was not magically appearing in his schedule like a gift from a friendly unicorn.
That’s when I decided to step in. I am passionate about BenchWorks- it’s changed my business and the businesses of my creative friends. As a daily user, I am intimately familiar with the product. And I have a very vested interest in keeping my husband happy! So here I am- your friendly new support person and BenchWorks advocate. After a few weeks of learning the ropes, I am ready to open BenchWorks back up to new users.
I believe we all need as much help as we can get to survive as small business owners. BenchWorks is an amazing tool to do just that- help. Help operations run smoothly, help understand the data, help get new business. Robby and I will be keeping BenchWorks alive and going strong. It’s not going anywhere.
Please feel free to reach out and get in touch with me. I’m here to help and would love to hear your thoughts. Welcome to all of our new (very patient) users, and Happy BenchWorking!
