Not being constantly bound by instructions, laws and hierarchies is a liberating and energizing sensation. Mobility – the ability to move around freely – is a fantastic thing, and I am sure that many of us remember very clearly the feeling of freedom that our first bicycle, moped, motorbike or car gave us. We were able to go wherever we wanted completely on the spur of the moment. And it soon became clear that simply having the freedom was more important than using the opportunities it afforded in the long term. Of course we all learned that freedom of decision is inseparable from responsibility. Which of us hasn’t dreamed of exploring the big wide world by motorcycle? Someone whose many years of experience and outstanding professionalism makes motorbike expeditions an unforgettable experience is our partner Touratech. In the world of work, the freedom to make decisions and take action is a major source of strength and motivation. But this also means acting responsibly and with discipline. For entrepreneurs, ensuring freedom of action is absolutely essential. Dependencies on system and total solution providers, comprehensive financing solutions and exclusive brand representatives are very often one-sided and restrict freedom to decide. All too often it only becomes clear that freedom of decision has been lost when a crisis occurs. We at MOTOREX are convinced that freedom of decision is crucial to success, especially the freedom to keep putting our customers and their lubrication needs at the centre of everything we do. Stock markets, banks and faraway corporate offices are no help in doing so.
