Developing a Hands-On Atmosphere at DIY Management Solutions

ROSEMONT, IL--(Marketwired - Dec 7, 2015) - DIY Management Solutions is an in-store marketing firm which helps clients in the satellite and communications industries to increase their client base through brand management, promotions, and customer acquisitions. As a company that specializes in becoming the face of clients' brands, DIY Management Solutions has succeeded in developing their client base through a hands-on approach to marketing, building relationships, and developing their employees. DIY owes much of its success to Senior Market Manager, Colter Peterson, who manages the day-to-day at DIY Management Solutions.

Peterson recently announced the company's intention to grow throughout the Greater Chicago Area. He asserted, "We have been on fire the last three months and are looking to expand this territory by expanding into two additional retail partnerships by the end of 2015." To facilitate this expansion, Peterson has developed an in-house management training program to increase the DIY's leadership core. Having started at entry level and worked his way to the top, Peterson, a self-made entrepreneur, believes that the best way to develop a business is from within. His program concentrates on business management, hands-on mentorship, communications, and direct marketing strategies; DIY focuses on training managers who have experience in every level of the company.

When asked about his inspiration to become a self-made entrepreneur, Peterson gave credit to his older brother and his background playing college baseball, stating, "I always had an entrepreneur mindset. I never wanted to work for the man. I wanted to be the man and run my own company." He remarked that the skills he used to make his goal a reality included a steady determination, work ethic, and a student mentality -- qualities that he looks for in candidates for the management training program at DIY. When asked to describe the program, Peterson explained, "Everyone starts entry level because you have to lay the groundwork before you start with building blocks. In management training, employees learn how to coach and train others, set goals, and expectations by helping others along the ways as well." He stated that as Branch Manager, he has the opportunity to operate on a macro level, utilizing all that he has learned from starting at entry level.

DIY Management Solutions' method of developing employees has provided employees with the opportunity to take a hands-on approach to developing professionally. Peterson asserted, "We succeed at DIY because we look at every failure as a learning opportunity to improve yourself." The atmosphere at DIY Management Solutions is fun, full of energy, and a drive to succeed that all employees share.

Peterson believes that DIY's success comes from the fact that the company remains small. He states, "Unlike companies with bigger populations and smaller management opportunities, DIY employees have a greater chance of reaching management." Furthermore, the company's size has helped to create a very close-knit community. Peterson confided that the team often goes on team nights to Buffalo Wild Wings and is currently planning a special night to simulated sky diving at a local place called I Fly.

In the end, the success that DIY Management Solutions originates with people, like Peterson, who put their heart into the place they work and the people that they work with each day. When asked about why he chose to build a career at DIY Management Solutions, Peterson said, "helping each other achieve our goals, day to day hands-on training to develop each individual." In the end, DIY is a people helping people business from building relationships with new clients to developing employees to help them reach professional goals.
