Another first for my career was the fact I was part of an organization that was very public facing and mission critical to Colombo and the surrounding areas. I haven’t met a person in Colombo yet who hasn’t heard of us. Seriously!
Our app provided convenient transportation solutions for people and we were also in the business of changing lives as our driver partners made great money and fed their families. Our work mattered and made a difference with so many lives dependent on what we do. That responsibility is both endearing and horribly frightening at the same time.
To cut this story short, it has been a very challenging (both good and bad) year for me at PickMe. High expectations, culture clashes, real ah-ha moments, horrible decisions that have backfired of all shapes and sizes have really kept me on my feet.
Who knows what the future has in store for us as we work hard to redefine logistics and on demand services for Sri Lanka.
To my cake loving colleagues, thanks for keeping things interesting. Here’s to another solid year and many more after that!
