Atlanta’s Most Inspiring Stories
We’ve been featured again! We were contacted recently by Voyage ATL Way to go Georgia’s Dream Nannies team! We have the most amazing team at Georgia’s Dream Nannies Domestic Staffing Agency. I’m blown away by the progress our company has made over the past 14-years and the contributions that each and EVERY employee has made over the years to help the company succeed.
Today we’d like to introduce you to Serra Deville.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I never dreamed 14-years ago I would be working in one of the largest, most prestigious and award-winning household staffing companies in Georgia. I’m not bragging about it either. I’m blown away by the progress our company has made over the past 14-years and the contributions that each and every employee has made over the years to help the company succeed.
I never dreamed of owning my company. All I ever wanted to be in life was a wife, mother and school teacher, but the Lord had different plans for my life. I came up with the idea of opening a household staffing agency in 2003 on a Saturday morning after contemplating many other business ideas that just didn’t seem like a fit; However, Georgia’s Dream Nannies seemed different. I had a full-time teaching job, but I knew that I was called to do more than teaching, so I started planning and putting together my business idea. In fact, I had my very first client within 2-weeks of opening the business.
I worked 60-70 hours for the first 7 years because I was on a mission to create the best experience for each and every person who contacted the agency. I never saw my work on a daily basis as a job, but as a calling. I met a lot of fascinating people who would share their personal stories both good and bad with me. I ended up being a listening ear and friend to so many during those early years.
I made sure that everyone who contacted the agency knew I cared about them. In fact, I remember interviewing nannies at 8:00 pm, 9:00 pm and even 10:00 pm just to make sure I could accommodate their schedule and the family’s needs to find someone quickly. I would work 6-days a week and love every single minute of it. I had the most wonderful staff during those earlier years (Melissa and Allison) who worked so hard to make sure that every little detail was just perfect. They truly did help grow the business early on. They both moved out-of-state and have their own families now, but I will never forget how hard they worked right alongside of me. We laughed a lot during those early years.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
