Day 18: Putting Up Barriers

The new direction that CJM is taking is refocusing the attention of all the members involved toward their own individual enterprises. As part of this shift, CJM has contracted two men to build dividers within the office so that each company has its own private work area. The chorus of street sounds that is the normal office score has now been replaced by a concierto of drills and hammers. Chemical smells dance around the room. Yet, these minor inconveniences are not for naught as the excitement within the air is palpable. While the barriers are only made of wood and dry wall, they symbolize much more. They represent the new focus of the organization, toward sustainable entrepreneurial ventures. Slowly, members are letting go of the non-profit mentality and grasping the concepts of sustainability.
